Virus assays on mosquito saliva can be used to estimate the amount transmitted to vertebrates during blood feeding. However, amount of virus collected in vitro may not accurately reflect mosquito transmission.
However, the term [tan[phi] tan[theta] / tan[phi] + tan[theta]] is a determining factor in the solids conveying rate, and is frequently shown plotted against the helix angle to illustrate the latter's effect on extruder feeding, as shown in figure 2b.

Recommendation: The variation between chilled and unchilled mechanical properties tends to be greater in alloys that have long freezing ranges, such as A206, because chilling can be used to improve directional solidification and therefore feeding of the alloy.
Artificial hydration and nutrition (AHN) through a feeding tube is frequently used in elders with advanced dementia when they lose 15 to 20% of their body weight and are unwilling or unable to take in adequate nutrition orally.
Human breast milk offers the optimal nutrition for all infants and provides immunological, developmental, psychological, economic, and practical advantages when compared to artificial feeding. For proper growth, development, and health, infants should be exclusively breastfed with no other food or drink--not even water--for their first 6 months of life [World Health Organization (WHO) 2001]; they should then receive nutritionally adequate and safe complementary foods while breast-feeding continues up to 24 months of age or beyond.
