In overweight people and individuals with a tendency to foot edema and arterial hypertension, permanent use of methylprednisolone is generally a better option because, at equivalent doses
, it retains less water and weight and increases blood pressure less than other glucocorticoids, particularly much less than the bioidentical hydrocortisone.
The calibration procedure of MTS-6 detectors was performed in units of the equivalent dose
using the [sup.239]Pu-Be neutron source.
Table 2 shows the U, Th and K mass fraction, the annual and the equivalent dose
values and the age.

Multivariate analysis using General Linear Model (GLM) was performed with adjustments for gender, diabetes, age, BMI, equivalent dose
and logarithmically transformed length of treatment.
Table 3 shows the equivalent dose
received by the nuclear medicine technologists from the selected scans.
Diazepam equivalent dose
was around 7.04+-4, with a inter-quartile range of 3-96 weeks.
The researchers found that mice given an equivalent dose
of five cups of coffee for a human developed twice the amount of visceral fat - the most dangerous form of fat that collects around the organs in the abdomen.
[sup.241]Am-Be source emits gamma photons of low energy (60 keV and 14 keV), so that for the activity of 1 Ci, the photon equivalent dose
rate is [H.sub.[gamma]] = 12 mSv/hr are calculated, and the photon absorbed dose rate is [D.sub.[gamma]] = 12 mGy/hr at a distance of 5 cm from the source.
Gross tumor volume and the biologic equivalent dose
(BED) were calculated for each individual lesion.
NEM was evaluated for cytotoxicity, genotoxicity and oral toxicity (both single acute dose and 90-day repeated-dose) at doses up to 50 times the clinically tested human equivalent dose
. NEM did not show any signs of toxicity in any of the areas evaluated.
Smart controls ensure continuous monitoring and real-time display of the verified RED (reduction equivalent dose
) and allow three levels of password-protected security and provide Modbus output to SCADA systems, allowing event logging.
Or he could change you over to an equivalent dose
of fluoxetine, which is a similar drug but takes a lot longer for the body to metabolise.
Radiation scientists use another quantity, called equivalent dose
Zones of inhibition surrounding disks containing 100 [micro]L of thymol solution at the equivalent dose
to that found in the herb (1x) or five, ten or fifty times greater dose (5x, 10x or 50x) were plotted.
