(2003) reported that hot water ([greater than or equal to] 70[degrees]C) kills vegetative cells of microorganisms and extracts many components from microbial biomass as well as many nonmicrobial organic substances.
Statistically analyzed variables and their details were as follows: i) patient characteristics: age, gender, presence of single or multiple abscesses, presence of malignancy, underlying etiology (spontaneous or postoperative); iij abscess characteristics: volume, structure (complex multilocular or simple unilocular), microbiologic content (nonmicrobial, unimicrobial polymicrobial, presence of yeast), presence of fistula; iii) procedure characteristics: guidance method (US or CT), access route (transabdominal, transvaginal, transrectal, transgluteal) and catheter size.
(3) However, it was reported that some of the failure cases of endodontically treated teeth are resulted from nonmicrobial factors as well as biological factors.
The influence of other factors, including the individual characteristics of each patient's immune system, coinfection, and other nonmicrobial agents, could eventually interfere with the results [41-43].
Although the feeding particles were not isolated from the rumen contents before sample analysis, contribution of nonmicrobial nucleic acids was negligible 4 h after feeding [15].
Moreover, macrophage depletion ameliorates glycerol-induced AKI in mice.[sup][5],[6] Toll-like receptors (TLRs) are a family of pathogen recognition receptors that play a vital role in the innate immune system.[sup][9],[10] In addition, TLRs are activated by endogenous agonists of nonmicrobial origin and involved in noninfectious inflammatory conditions.[sup][11] TLR4 activation results in the release of nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-?B), allowing NF-?B translocation from cytoplasm to nucleus, where it mediates the increase in cytokine gene expressions leading to proinflammatory responses.[sup][12],[13]
Gal-3 expression is increased in various epithelial and myeloid cells by microbial and nonmicrobial inflammatory stimuli.

On the contrary, increased concentration of nutrients (N, P, and K) at different stages of decomposition in wet season (Figures 3, 4, and 5) was attributed to microbial or nonmicrobial immobilization in the residual leaf litter while leaf litter acts as a surface for fungi or heterotrophic organisms [6, 20, 53].
* Specifically disrupts lipids found in Gram-negative bacteria membranes while not affecting membranes in eukaryotic cells--cells with the nucleus and other structures enclosed in separate membranes found in mammals and other nonmicrobial life.
