How can you use “deficiency” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • This analysis suggests that there is considerable variability in the progressive tissue pathology induced by dystrophin deficiency, both within a patient, and between patients.

  • CO may also be decreased in adrenal insufficiency as the result of the myofibrillar adenosine triphosphate (ATP) depletion seen with glucocorticoid deficiency [ 20].

  • The inheritance of certain polymorphisms of the mannose-binding lectin gene on Ch10 in persons with CVID are associated with earlier age of onset of manifestations of antibody deficiency and with increased risk of autoimmunity [ 25 ] . Altogether, these observations are consistent with the hypothesis that many common heritable antibody deficiency phenotypes collectively diagnosed as CVID or IgGSD are the result of the inheritance of multiple disease-predisposing alleles on Ch6p and possibly other chromosomes.

  • Our second experiment was designed to investigate whether vascular morphology would be altered with iron deficiency.

  • Further, this implies that putative Ch6p alleles associated with CVID or IgGSD susceptibility occur on many HLA haplotypes that are common in Caucasians in central Alabama [ 10 ] and in Caucasians from a large national bone marrow donor program [ 14 ] . The present observations also confirm and extend the reports of association of HLA haplotype A*01-B*08 (or an extended haplotype containing A*01 and B*08) with heritable forms of immunoglobulin deficiency demonstrated in family-based analyses [ 3 6 19 20 21 22 ] . It is likely that a candidate gene(s) for CVID or IgGSD exists in the HLA class II region, [ 6 19 20 21 22 23 ] . Because the class II region is closer to the HLA-B locus than to the HLA-A locus, it is plausible that candidate gene(s) for CVID or IgGSD in the class II region are in greater linkage disequilibrium with HLA-B than HLA-A.
