Wei Cheong Ngeow

We have investigated the effect of three potential scar-reducing agents applied at a sciatic nerve repair site in C57-black-6 mice. Under anaesthesia the nerve was transected, repaired using four epineurial sutures, and 100 mu l of either triamcinolone acetonide (1 mg/100 mu l), an interleukin-10 peptide fragment: (125 ng/100 mu l or 500 ng/100 mu l) or mannose-6-phosphate (M6P, 200 mM or 600 mM) was injected into and around the nerve. After 6 weeks the extent of regeneration was assessed electrophysiologically by determining the ratio of the compound action potential (CAP) modulus evoked by electrical stimulation of ...


Differentiation Of Dental Pulp Stem Cells Into Islet-Like Aggregates, Noor Hayaty Abu Kasim Abu Kasim N.H. 2011 Department of Conservative Dentistry, Faculty of Dentistry Building, University of Malaya

Differentiation Of Dental Pulp Stem Cells Into Islet-Like Aggregates, Noor Hayaty Abu Kasim Abu Kasim N.H.

Noor Hayaty Abu Kasim Abu Kasim N.H.

The post-natal dental pulp tissue contains a population of multipotent mesenchymal progenitor cells known as dental pulp stromal/stem cells (DPSCs), with high proliferative potential for self-renewal. In this investigation, we explored the potential of DPSCs to differentiate into pancreatic cell lineage resembling islet-like cell aggregates (ICAs). We isolated, propagated, and characterized DPSCs and demonstrated that these could be differentiated into adipogenic, chondrogenic, and osteogenic lineage upon exposure to an appropriate cocktail of differentiating agents. Using a three-step protocol reported previously by our group, we succeeded in obtaining ICAs from DPSCs. The identity of ICAs was confirmed as islets by ...


What Does It Take To Be A Man? What Is A Real Man?': Ideologies Of Masculinity And Hiv Sexual Risk Among Black Heterosexual Men, David J. Malebranche, Lisa Bowleg, Michelle Teti, Jenne S. Massie, Aditi Patel, Jeanne M. Tschann 2011 Emory University

What Does It Take To Be A Man? What Is A Real Man?': Ideologies Of Masculinity And Hiv Sexual Risk Among Black Heterosexual Men, David J. Malebranche, Lisa Bowleg, Michelle Teti, Jenne S. Massie, Aditi Patel, Jeanne M. Tschann

David J Malebranche

Research documents the link between traditional ideologies of masculinity and sexual risk among multi-ethnic male adolescents and White male college students, but similar research with Black heterosexual men is scarce. This exploratory study addressed this gap through six focus groups with 41 Black, low- to middle-income heterosexual men aged 19 to 51 years in Philadelphia, PA. Analyses highlighted two explicit ideologies of masculinity: that Black men should have sex with multiple women, often concurrently, and that Black men should not be gay or bisexual. Analyses also identified two implicit masculinity ideologies: the perception that Black heterosexual men cannot decline sex ...

Malignant Mediastinal Extra-Adrenal Paraganglioma With Spinal Cord Invasion In A Dog, Scott Rizzo, Shelley Newman, Silke Hecht, William Thomas

Silke Hecht

A 1.5-year-old castrated, male, mixed-breed dog was evaluated because of a 2-week history of lethargy, stiffness, and progressive paraparesis. Spinal radiographs, myelography, and computed tomography of the region showed a locally invasive mass involving the thoracic wall. Upon necropsy, an encapsulated, fluctuant mass was noted attached to the right dorsal body wall in the region of the fifth to seventh thoracic vertebra. Churukian-Schenk staining revealed positive granules within the neoplastic cell cytoplasm and immunohistochemistry was positive for expression for cytoplasmic neuron-specific enolase and synaptophysin. Chromogranin A and S100 expression were found to be negative. Immunohistochemistry and silver staining did ...

(99m)Tc-Dtpa Diuretic Renal Scintigraphy In Dogs With Nephroureterolithiasis, Silke Hecht, Meg Lawson, India Lane, Dorothy Sharp, Gregory Daniel

Silke Hecht

This study evaluated the results of diuretic renal scintigraphy in dogs with urolithiasis. Eighty-three kidneys with nephroureterolithiasis +/- renal pelvis/ureteral dilation were included in the study. Sixty-three kidneys showed a non-obstructive pattern, with a steep drop or gradual downward slope of renal time-activity curve (TAG). Excretion half-time of radiopharmaceutical (T-1/2) was 3.99 (2.99 to 7.95) min. Three kidneys showed an obstructive pattern, with continuous rise of the TAG and median T-1/2 of -10.71 (-5.20 to -17.56) min. Fifteen kidneys had non-diagnostic studies characterized by flat TAG. Individual kidney glomerular filtration rate was ...

The Good, The Bad, And The Rare: Memory For Partners In Social Interactions, Jenny Volstorf, Jörg Rieskamp, Jeffrey R. Stevens

Faculty Publications, Department of Psychology

For cooperation to evolve via direct reciprocity, individuals must track their partners’ behavior to avoid exploitation. With increasing size of the interaction group, however, memory becomes error prone. To decrease memory effort, people could categorize partners into types, distinguishing cooperators and cheaters. We explored two ways in which people might preferentially track one partner type: remember cheaters or remember the rare type in the population. We assigned participants to one of three interaction groups which differed in the proportion of computer partners’ types (defectors rare, equal proportion, or cooperators rare). We extended research on both hypotheses in two ways. First ...


A Compact Guide To The Diagnosis And Management Of Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Timothy Beer, David Strayer, MD, PhD 2011 Jefferson Medical College, 3rd year

A Compact Guide To The Diagnosis And Management Of Neurofibromatosis Type 1, Timothy Beer, David Strayer, Md, Phd

Department of Pathology, Anatomy, and Cell Biology Resident's Posters

Brief Introduction

Neurofibromatosis type 1 (NF-1) is a multisystem neurocutaneous disorder resulting from mutations in the NF-1 gene on chromosome 17 (q11.2). Mutations in NF-1 result in deficient activity of the tumor suppresor protein neurofibromin, allowing for uncontrolled constitutive activity of the proliferative Raspathway in several neural cell types, including neurons, oligodendrocytes, astrocytes and Schawnn cells. Half of NF-1 cases are inherited in autosomal dominant fashion, while half develop sporadically. The syndrome has 100% penetrance but highly variable expressivity. The prevalence of this syndrome is 1/3,000, making it common enough to warrant YOU, the physician, taking a ...


Exploring Healthcare Experiences Of Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual College Students Using Community-Based Participatory Research: A Dissertation, Caitlin M. Stover 2011 University of Massachusetts Medical School

Exploring Healthcare Experiences Of Lesbian, Gay, And Bisexual College Students Using Community-Based Participatory Research: A Dissertation, Caitlin M. Stover

Graduate School of Nursing Dissertations

Little is known about the healthcare experiences of lesbian, gay, and bisexual (LGB) young adults (ages 18-24) and even less is known about LGB college students (ages 18-24). Helping LGB college students effectively access appropriate, sensitive healthcare has the potential to reduce negative long-term health consequences. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to describe the healthcare experiences of LGB college students (ages 18-24) in the local college community using community-based participatory research (CBPR). Three online synchronous focus groups and one online individual interview were conducted with 19 LGB college students between January and February 2011. The focus groups were ...

Latina And Anglo Female Adolescent And Parent Values During The Iep Transition Process, Natalie Kollross

School of Graduate Psychology

Adolescent students with disabilities receive special education services in order to help them transition out of high school into adulthood. This transition process involves goal-setting, meetings, revision of individualized education plans, and student and parent participation. It is a crucial step in helping these young students be successful in adulthood. Latina and Anglo female students with disabilities and parents of Latina and Anglo female students with disabilities were studied. It was specifically examined how important traditional Latino values were to the groups of participants and how much the participants felt these values were being incorporated into the transition process by ...

Sp39: Development Of Geriatric Skill Sets To Enhance Learning In An Innovative Geriatric Longitudinal Experience Setting, Will Lehmann, Susan Saffel-Shrier, Karen M. Gunning, Timothy W. Farrell, Nadia Miniclier

Will Lehmann, MD

In the fall of 2007, the University of Utah Family Medicine Residency Program received an RRC variance in the continuity of care longitudinal geriatric experience which allowed the program to move from a long-term care/nursing home facility to an assisted living experience. Results of this 2 year project showed a significant increase in satisfaction for both faculty and learners, but competency evaluations did not meet expected goals. Based on these findings, the 19-point direct observation competency form was divided into smaller skill sets that would be more time-efficient to apply and teach. The finished product is a series of ...
