G. g. betaxolol, the carbonic anhydrase inhibitor diuretic acetazolamide, an anticholinesterase, typically pilocarpine, and adrenaline, which promotes drainage and slowing the rate of production of aqueous humour. Local anaesthesia Adrenaline is used as an adjunct to local anaesthetics, because it causes local vasoconstriction at the site of injection, thereby slowing drainage of the local anaesthetic. Croup This is an acute inflammation of the respiratory tract, which occurs most commonly between 6 months and 3 years of age.

HER receptors occur on the cell membrane and they selectively recognise mitogens and bind to them. This binding reaction triggers an intracellular response that is part of the system regulating a variety of cellular functions including cell growth and division, differentiation, adhesion and survival. Breast cancer can result from inappropriate and prolonged activation of the HER2/neu receptor, which switches on uncontrolled cell division and breast cancer. The eventual identification of similar cell membrane receptors in prostate tissue may yield a biological approach to the treatment of, for example, prostate cancer.

The process has some disadvantages in that it is laborious and it can take up to 6 months or more to prepare the vaccine in bulk. One egg may yield only two doses of vaccine and delays due to egg production are a time-limiting factor. Clearly this method might not meet the demand in the event of an unexpected pandemic of, for example, influenza. There may also be an adverse reaction in recipients who are allergic to eggs. This has been an issue with the MMR (measles, mumps and rubella) and polio vaccine in egg-sensitive children, who in the past may not have been vaccinated, but it is now generally considered more important to confer protection.
