Evaluation Of Pre-Harvest Screening For Antibiotics And Flunixin Meglumine In Cattle, Shuna A. Jones 2014 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

Evaluation Of Pre-Harvest Screening For Antibiotics And Flunixin Meglumine In Cattle, Shuna A. Jones

Dissertations & Theses in Veterinary and Biomedical Science

Many antibiotics and medications used in the treatment of animals have a withdrawal time; residues are a concern for the meat industry. The most recently published 2009 USDA-FSIS Residue Program Data Report listed 135,389 Inspector-In-Charge-Generated (IICG) residue samples from 43,142,500 beef and dairy cattle inspected that year at harvest (USDA-FSIS 2009a). Of these samples, 1306 contained violative antibiotic residues and 327 violative flunixin meglumine residues. Two classes of antimicrobials comprised over half of the documented violative antimicrobial residues (beta-lactams that include ceftiofur and sulfa drugs that include sulfadimethoxine). While the violative residue rate seems small, violative residues ...

Frontal White Matter Integrity In Adults With Down Syndrome With And Without Dementia, David K. Powell, Allison Caban-Holt, Greg A. Jicha, William C. Robertson, Roberta Davis, Brian T. Gold, Frederick A. Schmitt, Elizabeth Head

Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopy Center Faculty Publications

Adults with Down syndrome (DS) are at high risk for developing Alzheimer's disease after the age of 40 years. To detect white matter (WM) changes in the brain linked to dementia, fractional anisotropy (FA) from diffusion tensor imaging was used. We hypothesized that adults with DS without dementia (DS n = 10), DS with dementia (DSAD n = 10) and age matched non-DS subjects (CTL n = 10) would show differential levels of FA and an association with scores from the Brief Praxis Test and the Severe Impairment Battery. WM integrity differences in DS compared with CTL were found predominantly in the ...


An Investigation Into The Prevalence Of And Relationships Among Compassion Fatigue, Burnout, Compassion Satisfaction, And Self-Transcendence In Oncology Nurses, Adena Romeo-Ratliff 2014 Seton Hall University

An Investigation Into The Prevalence Of And Relationships Among Compassion Fatigue, Burnout, Compassion Satisfaction, And Self-Transcendence In Oncology Nurses, Adena Romeo-Ratliff

Seton Hall University Dissertations and Theses (ETDs)

PROBLEM: Oncology nursing is an emotionally demanding profession where nurses witness repeated patient suffering and death placing them at risk for adverse emotional effects such as compassion fatigue (CF) and burnout (BO). Despite this risk, many oncology nurses describe an intense satisfaction with their work, known as compassion satisfaction (CS). Self-transcendence (ST) has been found to have protective abilities. This study purpose was to assess the prevalence of CF, BO, and CS among oncology nurses in theUnited States, and the relationships among ST and CF, BO, CS, and demographic factors.

METHODS: This descriptive correlational study consisted of a random sample ...

Differential Regulation Of Iress In The Aurora A Mrna By Bfgf Through The Mtor Complex Torc2 Modulates Aurora A Kinase Expression, Roy L. Voice Iii

UT GSBS Dissertations and Theses (Open Access)

Identifying the mechanisms that contribute to tumorigenesis is a major area of focus in our fight against cancer. Epithelial malignant tumors, such as breast, colon, ovarian and pancreatic cancers have been shown to overexpress proteins that control cell mitosis, growth, and proliferation. One of those proteins is the Aurora A kinase. Aurora A kinase is a member of a small family of kinases that contribute to mitotic events such as centrosome duplication, separation, and maturation. Aurora A overexpression leads to genomic instability, which can contribute to tumorigenesis, on the other hand, inhibiting Aurora A expression leads to apoptosis, making it ...


Combination Therapy With Aerosol Il-2 And Nk Cells For The Treatment Of Osteosarcoma Lung Metastasis, Sergei R. Guma 2014 Texas Medical Center Library

Combination Therapy With Aerosol Il-2 And Nk Cells For The Treatment Of Osteosarcoma Lung Metastasis, Sergei R. Guma

UT GSBS Dissertations and Theses (Open Access)

The survival of patients with osteosarcoma lung metastases has not improved in the last 20 years. Novel alternative therapies are needed. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the efficacy of combining natural killer [NK] cell therapy with aerosol interleukin-2 [IL-2] for the treatment of osteosarcoma lung metastasis. The expression of NKG2D ligands was analyzed in five different human osteosarcoma cell lines and 103 patient samples (47 from primary tumors and 56 from lung metastases). We discovered that osteosarcoma expresses the ligands for the NKG2D. In vitro studies demonstrated that NK-mediated killing of osteosarcoma cells is dependent on the ...


Inter- And Intra-Rater Reliabililty Of A Modified Approach To Scoring The Balance Error Scoring System (Bess) In Undistracted And Distracted Conditions, Jacob Ryan Pierce 2014 Utah State University

Inter- And Intra-Rater Reliabililty Of A Modified Approach To Scoring The Balance Error Scoring System (Bess) In Undistracted And Distracted Conditions, Jacob Ryan Pierce

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

Context: We have developed a modified approach to scoring balance errors with the Balance Error Scoring System (BESS) by eliminating two of the six original error criteria.

Objective: To measure the inter- and intra-rater reliability of this modified BESS approach. Because of the potential auditory distractions that may be present in a clinical setting, we also measured reliability for distracted rating conditions.

Design: Cross-sectional.

Setting: University sports medicine clinic.

Patients or Other Participants: Board of Certification (BOC) certified athletic trainers as raters (n=6).

Intervention: Raters used a modified approach to scoring the BESS to score 32 different sets of ...


Prediction Modeling For Graduate Athletic Training Education Programs, Scott L. Bruce 2014 University of Tennessee at Chattanooga

Prediction Modeling For Graduate Athletic Training Education Programs, Scott L. Bruce

Theses and Dissertations

The purposes of this study were: • to develop a prediction model to identify factors associated with eligibility and first-attempt success on the Board of Certification (BOC) examination for students enrolled in a professional (entry-level) graduate athletic training program (GATP) • to identify applicant characteristics that are most likely to predict both academic success in the GATP and success on the BOC exam. A cohort of 119 students was used for both purposes. Multiple analyses yielded three-factor and two-factor models for prediction of passing the BOC exam. The three-factor model demonstrates that a student with ≥ 2 predictors had an odds ratio (OR ...


9-Phenanthrol And Flufenamic Acid Inhibit Calcium Oscillations In Hl-1 Mouse Cardiomyocytes, Rees A. Burt 2014 East Tennessee State University

9-Phenanthrol And Flufenamic Acid Inhibit Calcium Oscillations In Hl-1 Mouse Cardiomyocytes, Rees A. Burt

Undergraduate Honors Theses

Electrical potentials exist across the membranes of nearly every cell type in the body. In addition, excitable cells, such as neurons, myocytes and even some endocrine cells elicit electrochemical fluctuations, action potentials (AP), in the cell membrane to initiate cell-to-cell communication or intracellular processes. The basis for the electrical potential is rooted within an array of complex interactions between monovalent ions and their associated membrane channels and transporters that regulate the flux of these charged species across the hydrophobic bilayer. Here, an expansion of our recently published work [1] will serve to explore the modern concepts regarding the origin of ...


A Systematic Column Performance Comparison For The Confirmation Of Opioids Used In Pain Management By Lc-Ms, Derek Stallard 2014 East Tennessee State University

A Systematic Column Performance Comparison For The Confirmation Of Opioids Used In Pain Management By Lc-Ms, Derek Stallard

Undergraduate Honors Theses

In this study, three different chromatographic column chemistries (C18, Pentafluorophenyl (PFP), Hydrophilic Interaction Chromatography (HILIC)) were compared under optimal conditions to determine which stationary performed best in the separation and detection of a mixture of opioids using LC-MS. Furthermore, these stationary phases were examined in three different column technologies – traditional silica, porous shell, and porous polymer (PRP). The PRP column had the best peak shape for all 13 opioids and dominated for later-eluting compounds. In terms of column reproducibility, the Hamilton C18 column had the lowest %RSD values. The Kinetex HILIC produced the most theoretical plates and best resolution for ...

Department of Neurosurgery Faculty Papers

Background: Cervical spondylotic myelopathy (CSM) is typically encountered in the elderly population. Significant inconsistencies currently exist regarding the definition of the disorder, the true incidence of CSM in younger populations, and the established diagnostic criteria.

Objective: To highlight the lack of standardization in the definition and diagnosis of CSM.

Methods: A PubMed literature search was conducted spanning the years 2001 to 2011. The search was limited by the following terms: 1) English language, 2) Adults (19-44 years old), and 3) “cervical spondylotic myelopathy.” Each article was reviewed to determine if the presence of the definition of CSM existed in the ...


The Mental Health Disparity Among Nonheterosexuals: Risk, Resiliency, And New Perspectives To Consider In The Context Of Mormonism, Katherine Ann Crowell 2014 Utah State University

The Mental Health Disparity Among Nonheterosexuals: Risk, Resiliency, And New Perspectives To Consider In The Context Of Mormonism, Katherine Ann Crowell

All Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Despite substantial existing evidence that sexually diverse populations are at increased risk for mental health concerns due primarily to minority stress, how the underlying mechanisms of minority stress lead to specific psychological syndromes among these populations is not adequately understood. On the other hand, sexologists have been encouraged to shift the focus of their work towards understanding the specific characteristics or experiences that facilitate individuals' capacity to adapt and thrive within an oppressive and marginalizing society in order to "depathologize" nonheterosexuals. In attempts to address existing limitations and further the existing body of mental health risk and resiliency research among ...

How Do Black Nulliparous Women Cognitively Construct Birth?, Marianne F. Moore 2014 Texas Medical Center Library

How Do Black Nulliparous Women Cognitively Construct Birth?, Marianne F. Moore

UT SON Dissertations (Open Access)

A focused ethnography was conducted to determine the cognitive constructions about birth described by nulliparous Black women in an urban area of the Southwestern US; also, during postpartum, how do these women reconcile expectations with the actual birth? Semi-structured interviews were conducted before birth and after birth.

Women, 16 or older, 17 - 33 weeks carrying a singleton fetus and without anomalies or problems like pre-gestational diabetes, NYHA Cardiac Class III/IV, cancer, renal failure, or sickle cell anemia that eliminated vaginal birth were sequentially recruited and sampled in an affiliated ultrasound clinic. Women scheduled for an anatomy scan were approached ...


Assessment Of Morphosyntactic Development Of Preschool Children With Hearing Loss Using The Clinical Evaluation Of Language Fundamentals-Preschool Second Edition, Angela Anderson 2014 Utah State University

Assessment Of Morphosyntactic Development Of Preschool Children With Hearing Loss Using The Clinical Evaluation Of Language Fundamentals-Preschool Second Edition, Angela Anderson

All Graduate Plan B and other Reports

It is recommended that children with HL are assessed using standardized assessments normed on hearing peers (Houston & Caraway, 2009; Joint Commission on Infant Hearing (JCIH), 2007). However, as these assessments are more commonly administered to children with HL there is reason to further investigate the sensitivity of these assessments particularly in their ability to identify weaknesses specific to HL. The CELF-Preschool 2 (Clinical Evaluation of Language Fundamentals – Preschool (Wiig, Secord & Semel, 2004)) has been found to be a valid tool for diagnosing language impairment in normal hearing children (Spaulding, Plante, & Farinella, 2006). However, this assessment has not been normed on children with HL and the standardized assessment may not successfully identify areas of acoustic weakness that may exist in children with HL, particularly as it relates to the form of language (such as syntax and morphology) (Spencer, 2004). Standard and/or scaled scores alone may not provide the information needed to understand a child’s ability to hear across frequencies and to learn and accurately use morphosyntactic structures/information.

This preliminary study will 1) provide results examining the performance of 47 preschool children with HL on the CELF-P2; 2) describe findings from an item analysis that show children with HL have ongoing challenges with morphosyntactic development; and 3) discuss implications for educational providers (i.e., speech-language pathologists, deaf educators,) for ...

Lyman, Lee Mcwilliams, Alison L. Rein, Abigail A. Schachter, Ranjit Singh, Barbara Sorondo, Joan Topper, Scott A. Turske

eGEMs (Generating Evidence & Methods to improve patient outcomes)

Purpose: Unprecedented efforts are underway across the United States to electronically capture and exchange health information to improve health care and population health, and reduce costs. This increased collection and sharing of electronic patient data raises several governance issues, including privacy, security, liability, and market competition. Those engaged in such efforts have had to develop data sharing agreements (DSAs) among entities involved in information exchange, many of whom are “nontraditional” health care entities and/or new partners. This paper shares lessons learned based on the experiences of six federally funded communities participating in the Beacon Community Cooperative Agreement Program, and ...
