ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "Schick test" is presented. It refers to a test to determine the degree of immunity to diphtheria. The test involves an intradermal injection of 0.1 ml of dilute diphtheria toxin. A negative test result with little or no reaction is the indication of presence of antibodies sufficient to neutralize the toxin.

    HB-EGF is a member of the EGF family of growth factors that bind and activate the EGF receptor. HB-EGF is synthesized as a membrane-anchored protein (proHB-EGF), and then proteolytically cleaved, resulting in the mitogenically active soluble form. ProHB-EGF functions as the receptor for the...
