 Synonyms & Historicals
Defense Mechanisms .
Mechanisms, Defense .
Unconscious process used by an individual or a group of individuals in order to cope with impulses, feelings or ideas which are not acceptable at their conscious level; various types include reaction formation, projection and self reversal. .
Defensive and Curative Mechanisms .
Mechanisms used by the organism in order to eliminate noxa and determine the cure process. .
Philosophy, Medical .
Medical Philosophy .
Mechanicism .
Mechanics .
The branch of physics which deals with the motions of material bodies, including kinematics, dynamics, and statics. When the laws of mechanics are applied to living structures, as to the locomotor system, it is referred to as BIOMECHANICAL PHENOMENA. (From Dorland, 28th ed) .
/pharmacology .
/mechanism of action .
/mode of action .
/pharmacodynamics .
/pharmacologic action .
Used with drugs and exogenously administered chemical substances for their effects on living tissues and organisms. It includes acceleration and inhibition of physiological and biochemical processes and other pharmacologic mechanisms of action. .
Automation .
Automations .
Mechanization .
Controlled operation of an apparatus, process, or system by mechanical or electronic devices that take the place of human organs of observation, effort, and decision. (From Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 1993) .
Defensins .
Family of antimicrobial peptides that have been identified in humans, animals, and plants. They are thought to play a role in host defenses against infections, inflammation, wound repair, and acquired immunity. .
