Breast Cancer Burden And Racial Disparities In Georgia By Age And Geographic Region, John Vena, Colin Smith, Sara Wagner, Claire Robb, Emily Smith, Dillon Robinson, Stephanie Mathews, A. Rana Bayakly

Claire Robb

Breast cancer is the leading incident cancer among women in Georgia with dramatic demographic, temporal and geographic differentials that are clues for research and prevention. This study examines the burden of breast cancer incidence and mortality in Georgia and disparities for European Americans (EA) and African Americans (AA) as related to age, time period and geographic region, defined by state health district. The 1998-2005 Georgia Cancer Registry data and Vital Statistics records were used to generate age-adjusted rates per 100,000 for pre-menopausal women (age 45 and under) and post-menopausal women (age 45+). Incidence was higher among EA compared to ...


Comparison Of 1-Year Survival And Heart Rate Variability In Acute Coronary Syndrome. [Abstract], Patricia R.E. Harris, Phyllis K. Stein, Barbara J. Drew 2010 University of California, San Francisco

Comparison Of 1-Year Survival And Heart Rate Variability In Acute Coronary Syndrome. [Abstract], Patricia R.E. Harris, Phyllis K. Stein, Barbara J. Drew

Patricia Harris

Numerous studies support the use of heart rate variability (HRV) for risk stratification in the post–myocardial infarction (MI) population. However, little is known about the prognostic value of HRV measured during the acute phase of MI and unstable angina (ie, acute coronary syndrome, or ACS).

Developing Constructs For Psychopathology Research: Research Domain Criteria, Charles A. Sanislow, Daniel S. Pine, Kevin J. Quinn, Michael J. Kozak, Marjorie A. Garvey, Robert K. Heinssen, Philip Sung-En Wang, Bruce N. Cuthbert 2010 Wesleyan University

Developing Constructs For Psychopathology Research: Research Domain Criteria, Charles A. Sanislow, Daniel S. Pine, Kevin J. Quinn, Michael J. Kozak, Marjorie A. Garvey, Robert K. Heinssen, Philip Sung-En Wang, Bruce N. Cuthbert

Charles A. Sanislow, Ph.D.

There exists a divide between findings from integrative neuroscience and clinical research focused on mechanisms of psychopathology. Specifically, a clear correspondence does not emerge between clusters of complex clinical symptoms and dysregulated neurobiological systems, with many apparent redundancies. For instance, many mental disorders involve multiple disruptions in putative mechanistic factors (e.g., excessive fear, deficient impulse control), and different disrupted mechanisms appear to play major roles in many disorders. The Research Domain Criteria (RDoC) framework is a heuristic to facilitate the incorporation of behavioral neuroscience in the study of psychopathology. Such integration might be achieved by shifting the central research ...

Similarities And Differences In Health Care Use And Hiv-Related Concerns Based On Immigration Profile: Findings From The Blacch Study Interviews, Shamara M. Baidoobonso, Harina Mokanan, Monica Abdelkader, Greta Bauer

Shamara M Baidoobonso, PhD

Background and Objectives: Most HIV and health studies in African, Caribbean and Black (ACB) communities occur in large urban centres and rarely examine how the interactions between race, migration, gender, HIV-related stigma, service use and multiple dimensions of social position interact and act individually to affect health and HIV vulnerability. This lack of information negatively impacts HIV prevention efforts for ACB communities. This analysis explores the HIV-related experiences of people from different immigration classes. Methods: Using a community-based approach, a purposive sample of 22 ACB community members were interviewed to collect information about health-related experiences in London, Ontario. Respondents represented ...

A Novel Totivirus And Piscine Reovirus (Prv) In Atlantic Salmon (Salmo Salar) With Cardiomyopathy Syndrome (Cms), Torstein Tengs 2010 Norwegian Veterinary Institute

A Novel Totivirus And Piscine Reovirus (Prv) In Atlantic Salmon (Salmo Salar) With Cardiomyopathy Syndrome (Cms), Torstein Tengs

Dr. Torstein Tengs

BACKGROUND
Cardiomyopathy syndrome (CMS) is a severe disease affecting large farmed Atlantic salmon. Mortality often appears without prior clinical signs, typically shortly prior to slaughter. We recently reported the finding and the complete genomic sequence of a novel piscine reovirus (PRV), which is associated with another cardiac disease in Atlantic salmon; heart and skeletal muscle inflammation (HSMI). In the present work we have studied whether PRV or other infectious agents may be involved in the etiology of CMS.
RESULTS
Using high throughput sequencing on heart samples from natural outbreaks of CMS and from fish experimentally challenged with material from fish ...

Cyanidin-3-Glucoside Inhibits Ethanol-Induced Invasion Of Breast Cancer Cells Overexpressing Erbb2, Mei Xu, Kimberly A. Bower, Siying Wang, Jacqueline A. Frank, Gang Chen, Min Ding, Shiow Wang, Xianglin Shi, Zunji Ke, Jia Luo

Internal Medicine Faculty Publications

BACKGROUND: Ethanol is a tumor promoter. Both epidemiological and experimental studies suggest that ethanol may enhance the metastasis of breast cancer cells. We have previously demonstrated that ethanol increased the migration/invasion of breast cancer cells expressing high levels of ErbB2. Amplification of ErbB2 is found in 20-30% of breast cancer patients and is associated with poor prognosis. We sought to identify agents that can prevent or ameliorate ethanol-induced invasion of breast cancer cells. Cyanidin-3-glucoside (C3G), an anthocyanin present in many vegetables and fruits, is a potent natural antioxidant. Ethanol exposure causes the accumulation of intracellular reactive oxygen species (ROS ...


Scientific Certainty In A Time Of Uncertainty: Predicting Vulnerability Of Canada's First Nations To Pandemic H1n1/09, Nicholas Spence, Jerry P. White 2010 University of Western Ontario

Scientific Certainty In A Time Of Uncertainty: Predicting Vulnerability Of Canada's First Nations To Pandemic H1n1/09, Nicholas Spence, Jerry P. White

The International Indigenous Policy Journal

On June 11, 2009, the Director General of the World Health Organization, Dr. Margaret Chan, announced that the scientific evidence indicated that the criteria for an influenza pandemic had been met: pandemic H1N1/09 virus, the first in nearly 40 years, was officially upon us. The World Health Organization has estimated that as many as 2 billion or between 15 and 45 percent of the population globally will be infected by the H1N1/09 virus. Scientists and governments have been careful to walk a line between causing mass public fear and ensuring people take the risks seriously. The latest information ...


Healthcare In Cuba, Carmen Cusack 2010 Selected Works

Healthcare In Cuba, Carmen Cusack

Carmen M Cusack

Poor Americans who lack health-insurance or have little opportunity to access specialized or non-emergency medical treatment in the U.S. should be permitted by the U.S. State Department to spend money in Cuba in order to receive inexpensive medical treatment, and should be allowed to stay (and spend) in Cuba as long as necessary in order to receive inexpensive medical treatment. If Americans were permitted by an exception in the Helms-Burton Act to spend money in Cuba and visit for medical purposes, then Cuba would likely treat these Americans for a very low cost. This can be argued because ...

The Patient Centered Medical Home: Federal, State And Local Initiatives To Transform Primary Care. The First Of An Occasional Series In Interprofessional Education And Care In The Patient-Centered Medical Home, Brooke Salzman

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

The Patient Centered Medical Home (PCMH) is rapidly emerging as one prototype for redesigning health care delivery, restructuring reimbursement, and reestablishing the critical value of primary care. The actual term “medical home” was introduced by the American Academy of Pediatrics, (AAP) in 1967, initially referring to a central location for archiving a child’s medical record. In 2002, the AAP expanded the medical home concept to include care characterized as accessible, continuous, comprehensive, patient-centered, coordinated, compassionate, and culturally effective. In 2004, the American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP) embraced the model in its Future of Family Medicine project report, and ...

Clinical Care Plan, Interprofessional Course, Marcia Levinson, Kathryn Shaffer, Amy Egras

Collaborative Healthcare: Interprofessional Practice, Education and Evaluation (JCIPE)

Evidence suggests interprofessional collaborative practice significantly improves patient outcomes, reduces mortality and enhances quality-of-life.1 Person-focused care demands collaboration among professions in a team approach to address multiple issues including illness, prevention, and health promotion activities. Key elements of successful implementation of interprofessional education are supported in Thomas Jefferson University’s Clinical Care Plan, Interprofessional Course (CCPIC) that includes increasing knowledge of the roles, responsibilities, and competencies of other health professions, collaborating in teams, recognizing the patient as the expert, and communicating effectively.
