Without a more comprehensive idea of the genes that change in expression during the transition from NCH to CCH, correlated with measurements of particular environmental or viral factors that might promote such transitions, precisely determining the etiology of clam hemocyte cancer or similar hemic neoplasias in other bivalves will continue to be difficult.

The EEOC regulations define physical impairment as a physiological disorder affecting, inter alia, the reproductive system.(295) The Court in Bragdon established that HIV is a physical impairment,(296) analyzing in detail how HIV causes deterioration of the body, particularly the hemic and lymphatic systems.(297) But where HIV merely causes deterioration of these "body systems,"(298) infertility prevents the actual use of the reproductive system for the purpose it was designed--bearing children.
Justice Kennedy explained, "HIV infection must be regarded as a physiological disorder with a constant and detrimental effect on the infected person's hemic and lymphatic systems from the moment of infection.
Thus, HIV infection is regarded as a "physiological disorder with an immediate, constant, and detrimental effect on the hemic and lymphatic systems."(5) The Court identified Abbott's ability to reproduce and bear children as the "major life activity" that the HIV infection substantially limits.
Peat and muck soils (Hemic, Lithic and Typic Medisaprists), are derived primarily from the growth, death, and decay of Everglades sawgrass (Cladium jamaicense) vegetation that usually forms over marl or limestone (Davis 1943).
The law defines "physical or mental impairment" as "any physiological disorder or condition, cosmetic disfigurement, or anatomical loss affecting one or more of the following body systems: neurological; musculoskeletal; special sense organs; respiratory, including speech organs; cardiovascular; reproductive; digestive; genitourinary; hemic and lymphatic; skin; or endocrine...." "Substantially limits" is defined as "the degree that the impairment affects an individual's employability." Hence, a handicapped individual who is likely to experience difficulty in securing, retaining, or advancing in employment would be considered substantially limited.
These systems include neurological, musculosketal, special sense organs, respiratory, cardiovascular, reproductive, digestive, genito-urinary, hemic and lymphatic, skin, and endocrine.
