R. MARKS Biology has turn into a 'numbers game'. some great benefits of with the ability to grade adjustments in tissue, post effects to statistical research and competently list organic phenomena make dimension crucial. this is often as precise for a number of the disciplines in utilized biology because it is for the extra esoteric features ofthe topic. unfortunately, sk in biologists until eventually lately had now not seized the possibilities that the provision in their tissue of curiosity afforded and fell in the back of within the exploration of size innovations. most likely this ended in half from the fallacious sentiment that 'to see is to know'. It additionally originated from the complexity ofthe epidermis which. as a heavily interwoven combination oftissue forms. makes checks technically tricky. besides the fact that, we're positive concerning the destiny. The foreign Society for Bioengineering and the outside was once shaped in Cardiff in ] uly 1979 in accordance with the needs of the delegates who had attended the 1st foreign Symposium at the topic in Miami in 1976 and the second one in Cardiff three years later. This quantity is the complaints of the Cardiff assembly. We think that it demonstrates the courageous efforts and diversity of latest rules that characterise the reviews of scientists who recognize the significance of mixing the actual sciences with epidermis biology.

CONCLUSION Results in the five patients receiving large doses of prednisolone show that no significant change in the mechanical parameters studied occurred at any of the times selected after treatment. , although they used a different treatment regimen. The PUV A results show an increase in nominal elasticity modulus, indicating a photosclerosis as reported by Pierard 2 , but the tendency for the residual deformation to increase contrasts with Pierard's photosclerosis pattern, in which he reported an increase in 'biological elasticity'.

This permits the measurement of stratum corneum softness whether it is close to a bone or to fatty tissue. The method was used to determine the energy absorbed in normal and dry skin and was also useful for evaluating the effect of various treatments on skin softness. In a controlled environment, the data was reproducible. INTRODUCTION A method based on measuring mechanical resonance frequency to determine the elastic modulus originated about 40 years ago 1. Since then, numerous investigators have used the technique successfully to determine the dynamic mechanical properties of materials.
