Artificial Zona Pellucida For In Vivo Culture Of Nude Blastomeres, Mauricio H. Pineda, John W. Pollard Dec 1993

Artificial Zona Pellucida For In Vivo Culture Of Nude Blastomeres, Mauricio H. Pineda, John W. Pollard

Iowa State University Patents

An artificial zona pellucida is provided for implantation in the peritoneal cavities of small laboratory animals. The assembly includes a hydrogel cartridge for containing one or more nude isolated blastomeres which can be cultured therein to an implant stage in the peritoneal cavity of a small animal such as a mouse. The combination is particularly advantageous for culturing of nude isolated blastomeres of a species different from the host small laboratory animal, such as blastomeres of domestic animals.

Bridging The Gap: An Investigation Of The Transition From Received Knowledge To Subjective Knowledge In Women's Development And In Gender-Aware Psychotherapy, Judith Robin Collins Dec 1993

Bridging The Gap: An Investigation Of The Transition From Received Knowledge To Subjective Knowledge In Women's Development And In Gender-Aware Psychotherapy, Judith Robin Collins

School of Graduate Psychology

This dissertation provides a beginning rationale for the discovery of treatments specific to individual levels of epistemological development. As with other developmental theories, epistemological development has been shown to fall into groupings, variously known as perspectives or positions ever since the concept of stage has become untenable. Several studies have illuminated the particular characteristics of each epistemological developmental position; one focuses predominately on men and the other focuses on women. This discussion emphasizes the development of women’s ways of knowing. Ways of knowing is the descriptive way to indicate epistemology, and epistemology has been found to differ between women ...


Co-Sensitization Of Dopamine And Serotonin Receptors Occurs In The Absence Of A Change In The Dopamine D1 Receptor Complex After A Neonatal 6-Ohda Lesion, Li Gong Dec 1993

Co-Sensitization Of Dopamine And Serotonin Receptors Occurs In The Absence Of A Change In The Dopamine D1 Receptor Complex After A Neonatal 6-Ohda Lesion, Li Gong

Electronic Theses and Dissertations

To test whether SKF 38393 could ontogenetically sensitize dopamine (DA) D$\sb1$ receptors and whether this sensitization would be associated with biochemical changes, intact and neonatal 6-hydroxydopamine (6-OHDA)-lesioned rats (200 $\mu$g i.c.v.) were treated daily from birth with SKF 38393 (3.0 mg/kg i.p. x 28 days) or its vehicle. In DA D$\sb1$ neonatally sensitized 6-OHDA rats, enhanced locomotor responses were observed with the first SKF 38393 challenge dose (3.0 mg/kg i.p.) at 6 weeks. This response increased further with weekly SKF 38393 treatments. Enhanced stereotyped behaviors were seen in ...


Pain And Hospital Patients Perception Of Quality, Kathy L. Beck Dec 1993

Pain And Hospital Patients Perception Of Quality, Kathy L. Beck

Theses and Dissertations (ETD)

Each year pain disables approximately 50 million Americans. These patients seekhealth care for the relief of pain and its underlying cause. Many of those seeking relief from pain are hospitalized and others experience pain during their hospitalization. All of these patients have the right to relief of their pain and none should suffer pain needlessly. Yet, often nurses fail to accurately assess and adequately manage patients' pain.

Adequate pain management may increase patient perception of nursing care quality. The purpose of this study is to determine the relationships between pain relief and patients' and nurses' perceptions of quality. The relationship ...


Spirituality Among Terminally Ill Hospitalized Adults And Healthy Non-Hospitalized Adults In A Military Environment, Richard M. Holt Dec 1993

Spirituality Among Terminally Ill Hospitalized Adults And Healthy Non-Hospitalized Adults In A Military Environment, Richard M. Holt

Theses & Dissertations

The purpose of this study was to identify whether or not terminally ill hospitalized adults indicated greater spirituality and well-being than healthy non-hospitalized adults. Reed's (1986b & 1987) studies are the bases for this treaty although this is not a replicate study. The conceptual framework of this research is founded on the developmental life-span, and energy field patterns (Rogers, 1980) impacting spirituality and well-being. It was hypothesized that terminally ill hospitalized adults indicate greater spirituality than healthy nonhospitalized adults in a military environment. A terminally ill and healthy adult group of N=30, (n=15 each) were selected for a ...

Changing Breed Predispositions In Canine Heart Disease, James W. Buchanan Dec 1993

Changing Breed Predispositions In Canine Heart Disease, James W. Buchanan

Departmental Papers (Vet)

Breed predispositions for some types of congenital heart disease were recognized 30 years ago and led to breeding experiments that confirmed the genetic transmission of specific congenital heart defects in most instances. As a result, certain breeds were associated with certain diseases, and this became a legitimate consideration in the differential diagnosis of some abnormalities in the absence of more definite diagnostic studies. As an example, a significant systolic murmur in a young Newfoundland dog means sub-aortic stenosis (SAS) until proven otherwise. The diagnosis of SAS is usually confirmed by Doppler echocardiography or angiocardiography.

Although cardiologists take breed into consideration ...

Who Enrolled In A State Program For The Uninsured: Was There Adverse Selection?, Paula Diehr Dec 1993

Who Enrolled In A State Program For The Uninsured: Was There Adverse Selection?, Paula Diehr

Paula Diehr

Managed care plans may hesitate to participate in programs for uninsured persons because they fear adverse selection, whereby only the sickest people or highest users would choose to join the program. We studied this issue in Washington State's Basic Health Plan, a demonstration program that provides subsidized health insurance for families earning less than 200% of the poverty level. We interviewed people in three counties who enrolled in the program, and compared them to people in the same counties who were eligible but did not enroll. There were substantial differences between enrollees and eligibles in education, age, income, employment ...

Access To Prenatal Care And County Size: Implications For Service Delivery, Ellen E. Whipple Dec 1993

Access To Prenatal Care And County Size: Implications For Service Delivery, Ellen E. Whipple

The Journal of Sociology & Social Welfare

The impact of population size across twenty-three west Michigan counties was examined to determine access to prenatal care, low birth weight, and infant mortality. Surveys were completed by forty-five managers of hospitals and county health departments. Service availability, sociodemographic, system-related and lifestyle factors were examined as contributors to perinatal support utilization. Low birth weight and infant mortality were highest in the small- and large-sized counties. Positive birth outcomes in medium-sized counties may have been due to greater availability of infant and child health services through health departments, and the targeting of resources to specific problem areas, such as smoking cessation ...
