{Patch}Patch Dosing UnitA dosing unit equal to the amount of medicinal substance(s) contained in a single item of a patch drug delivery system which often has an adhesive backing that is applied to an external site on the body.
{pfu}Plaque Forming UnitA measure of viable infectious entities (e.g. viral particles or group of particles) in the specimen or product defined as the smallest quantity that can produce a cytopathic effect in the host cell culture challenged with the defined inoculum, visible under the microscope and/or to the naked eye as a plaque. A number of plaque forming units (PFU) per unit volume is a conventional way to refer the titer of an infective entity in a specimen or preparation.
{puff}Puff Dosing UnitA dosing unit equal to a metered dose of medicinal substance(s) that is delivered in uniform quantity upon each activation of a medical device (e.g. an inhaler), in which the dosage form is contained.
{RAE}Retinol Activity EquivalentAn arbitrary unit for measurement of the bioefficacy of ingested provitamin A carotenoids introduced by the U.S. Institute of Medicine (IOM). For a given amount of provitamin A compounds in a mixed diet, IOM estimates that the number of retinol activity e (RAE) is half the number of RE suggested by FAO/WHO. RAE is viewed as an approximate guideline because it was defined on the basis of relatively few studies and limited data on carotenoids bioavailability and bioconversion.
{RE}Retinol EquivalentAn arbitrary unit for measurement of a vitamin A activity of provitamin A carotenoids (such as carotenes, xanthophylls, and compounds that arise from rearrangement of carotene I skeleton) in a mixed diet introduced by FAO/WHO Expert Group in 1967. The concept of the retinol equivalent (RE) is established on the following relationships among food sources of the vitamin A: one microgram of all-trans retinol is equal to one RE, one microgram of beta-carotene is equal to 0.167 RE, and one microgram of other pro-vitamin A carotenoids is equal to 0.084 RE.
{Seed}Radioactive Seed Implant Dosing UnitA dosing unit in a form of an incapsulated radioactive material that constitutes an implantable pellet designed for brachytherapy administration.
{Session}SessionTime, period, or term devoted to some activity.
{Spray}Spray Dosing UnitA dosing unit equal to the amount of medicinal substance(s) contained in the volume of liquid delivered by the single operation of a spray dosage form container.
{Suppository}Suppository Dosing UnitA dosing unit equal to the amount of medicinal substance(s) contained in a single item of a suppository dosage form that is designed for introduction into the orifice of the human body and usually melts, softens, or dissolves at body temperature.
{tbl}Tablet Dosing UnitA dosing unit equal to the amount of medicinal substance(s) contained in a single item of a tablet dosage form comprising of compressed medicinal substance(s) with or without suitable diluents.
{TCID50}Tissue Culture Infection Dose 50A quantity of a pathogen required to infect 50% of the tissue cultures inoculated.
{Troche}Troche Dosing UnitA dosing unit equal to the amount of medicinal substance(s) contained in a single item of a discoid-shaped solid oral dosage form containing the medicinal agent in a suitably flavored base.
{Unit}UnitAny division of quantity accepted as a standard of measurement or exchange.
{Unknown}UnknownNot known, not observed, not recorded, or refused.
{VP}Viral Particle UnitA unit for virus amount measurement that represents the total number of viral particles (live and dead combined).
{Wafer}Wafer Dosage FormA thin slice of material containing a medicinal agent.
{YU}Yeast UnitsA natural number greater than 9 and less than 11 and the quantity that it denotes: the sum of nine and one.: A natural number following 999999 and preceding 100001 and the quantity that it denotes: one thousand thousand.: Various single-celled members of the fungal families, ascomycetes, basidiomycetes and imperfect fungi that tend to be unicellular for the greater part of their life cycle.
