The elderly are more sensitive because of deterioration in physiologic, biochemical, immunologic, and homeostatic parameters, which affects their ability to defend against environmental stresses.
The coefficients of variation for most parameters were less than 5%, suggesting that these parameters are less variable around the homeostatic set point intraindividually and interindividually.
The Swedish scientists want to study the bacteria and their interaction with immune systems "to clarify the molecular mechanisms of host-microbe interactions to maintain a mutually beneficial homeostatic relationship and protect people against overt disease," said the Commission.
Evidence gathered over the past few decades emphasize the importance of interaction between the neuroendocrine and immune systems in homeostatic organ function and development.
The lack of a response to steady-state growth conditions argued strongly that branching was subject to homeostatic controls that tended to negate the effects of the growth rate differences, resulting in very consistent branching patterns in wild-type Neurospora.
This lack of group or time effects provides support for the model of homeostatic wellbeing.
We argue that the homeostatic property cluster kind (HPCK), advocated by Boyd (1999), when combined with lineage provides the spatial and temporal aspects required for delineating a biological species.

In particular, the panel was constituted to facilitate integration of existing medical and scientific knowledge of other forms of hyponatremia with the occurrence of this homeostatic imbalance during endurance exercise.
The theory held up: Regulating the flow of calcium into cells allows for rapid synaptic changes that capture the transient features of the signal and slows homeostatic control that returns the cell to a steady state.
