Mills also finds that the providers face unique challenges, from getting referrals to hiring professionals, all while working without a functional network.


Sports Holdings In The Southeastern Conference University Libraries: Football As A Case Study, William F. Meehan III, Margaret A. Swanson, Catherine O. Yates, Emily N. Decker 2010 Valdosta State University

Sports Holdings In The Southeastern Conference University Libraries: Football As A Case Study, William F. Meehan Iii, Margaret A. Swanson, Catherine O. Yates, Emily N. Decker

The Southeastern Librarian

Of the twelve National Collegiate Athletic Association’s (NCAA) Division I Football Bowl Subdivision conferences, the Southeastern Conference (SEC) has attained prominence. But how do the SEC’s university libraries fare when evaluated for their football holdings? While university libraries develop their collections mainly to support research and teaching functions, according to accepted collection development practice, the extent to which sports of local importance are represented in their collections is a subject given little attention in the professional literature.

In order to help close the gap, this study evaluates the football holdings of the 12 SEC university library systems using ...


Factors Related To Potentially Preventable Readmissions Within New York's Medicare Patient Population, Mariela Salazar 2010 Binghamton University--SUNY

Factors Related To Potentially Preventable Readmissions Within New York's Medicare Patient Population, Mariela Salazar

MPA Capstone Projects 2006 - 2015

Hospitalizations are the most expensive type of care within the healthcare system. Yet many patients find themselves frequently returning to the hospital, particularly those in Medicare. Hospital readmission rates for Medicare patient's range between 18 to 20 percent higher than other private insured patients. In an effort to reduce spending within Medicare, federal reimbursements will decrease to penalize hospitals performing below national benchmarks. As an indicator of quality of care, readmission rates may identify areas of weakness within the healthcare continuum, and may occur as a result of a combination of different factors. Some of these factors include but ...


From Blood Pressure To Physical Disability: The Role Of Cognition, Merrill F. Elias, Gregory A. Dore, Adam Davey, Michael A. Robbins, Penelope K. Elias 2010 University of Maine - Main

From Blood Pressure To Physical Disability: The Role Of Cognition, Merrill F. Elias, Gregory A. Dore, Adam Davey, Michael A. Robbins, Penelope K. Elias

Maine-Syracuse Longitudinal Papers

We examined the hypothesis that lowered cognitive performance plays a role in the relation between elevated blood pressure and physical disability in performing basic physical tasks. A community-based sample (N = 1025) free from stroke and dementia (mean age: 61.1 years; SD: 13.0 years; 59.8% women) was used. Using path analysis, systolic and diastolic blood pressures (predictor variable) measured over multiple longitudinal examinations were averaged and related to multiple measures of cognition (intermediate variable) and physical ability (PA; outcome variable) measured at wave 6 of the Maine-Syracuse Study. PA was indexed by time required to execute standing, walking ...


Sequence And Biochemical Characterization Of Equilibrative Nucleoside Transporters From Crithidia Fasciculata: Seeking Ligand Binding Residues, Cassandra S. Arendt, Stephen Beverley, Buddy Ullman 2010 Pacific University

Sequence And Biochemical Characterization Of Equilibrative Nucleoside Transporters From Crithidia Fasciculata: Seeking Ligand Binding Residues, Cassandra S. Arendt, Stephen Beverley, Buddy Ullman

Faculty Scholarship (PHRM)

Eukaryotic cells acquire purines via de novo synthesis or salvage mechanisms. Unlike human cells, protozoan parasites from the Apicomplexan and Trypanosomatid lineages such as Plasmodium, Toxoplasma, Leishmania, Trypanosoma and Crithidia species lack de novo purine synthesis enzymes, and therefore rely on salvage of pre-formed purine bases for growth and proliferation, making purine salvage an attractive drug target. A key step in purine salvage is transport of purine nucleobases and nucleosides into the cell, and each species encodes a unique repertoire of transporter proteins from the equilibrative nucleoside transporter (ENT) family, each with its own ligand preference. No detailed structural information ...


The Meta Isomer Of Acetaminophen Is A Time Dependent Inhibitor Of Human Cyp2e1, John Harrelson, Sidney D. Nelson 2010 Pacific University

The Meta Isomer Of Acetaminophen Is A Time Dependent Inhibitor Of Human Cyp2e1, John Harrelson, Sidney D. Nelson

Faculty Scholarship (PHRM)

N-acetyl-m-aminophenol (3’-hydroxyacetanilide, AMAP) is the meta isomer of acetaminophen (4’-hydroxyacetanilide, APAP), the widely used analgesic that is safe at therapeutic doses but is hepatotoxic at larger doses. Unlike APAP, AMAP does not cause hepatotoxicity in mice even though AMAP and its metabolites covalently bind to hepatic proteins at levels comparable to APAP. Therefore, comparative studies with APAP and AMAP have been used in order to investigate mechanisms of toxicity and structure-toxicity relationships. However, the relationship between AMAP and CYP2E1, the enzyme generally implicated in the amplification of APAP-induced hepatotoxicity after ethanol ingestion, has not been ...

Uconn School Of Medicine Dean's Newsletter, Spring 2010, Cato T. Laurencin

Annual Reports - Education

In the mid-90’s, the UConn School of Medicine made several innovative changes to its curriculum that emphasized the development of clinical skills and problem-based learning. One of the hallmarks of the curriculum is the Student Continuity Practice, a program that places students as early as the first month of their first year, in community-based primary care offices. For the next three years, students spend time in that office, observing and learning the nuances and art of primary care medicine.

This is part of UConn’s overall strategy to prepare graduates for all facets of medicine, including primary care. Through ...

The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, JEANNE GILLESPIE 2010 University of Southern Mississippi

The Isleño Décima: Media And Memory In Spanish-Speaking South Louisiana, Jeanne Gillespie

JEANNE GILLESPIE

From the early fifteenth century to the end of the eighteenth century, the Spanish colonial process involved the settling of vast tracks of land. From their first colonial experiment in the Canary Islands in 1402, the Spanish administration learned that it was sometimes more effective to import assimilated settlers from already established colonial possessions than to attempt massive conversion and cultural assimilation. To shore up the vast spaces of the northern Gulf Coast, particularly "West Florida" and eastern Texas, the Spanish governors sent for colonists including groups of Canary Islanders who settled outposts along the Red River, as well as ...

Early Neutralizing Igg Response To Chikungunya Virus In Infected Patients Targets A Dominant Linear Epitope On The E2 Glycoprotein, Chan Yoke Fun 2010 chanyf@ummc.edu.my

Early Neutralizing Igg Response To Chikungunya Virus In Infected Patients Targets A Dominant Linear Epitope On The E2 Glycoprotein, Chan Yoke Fun

Chan Yoke Fun

Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) and related arboviruses have been responsible for large epidemic outbreaks with serious economic and social impact. The immune mechanisms, which control viral multiplication and dissemination, are not yet known. Here, we studied the antibody response against the CHIKV surface antigens in infected patients. With plasma samples obtained during the early convalescent phase, we showed that the naturally-acquired IgG response is dominated by IgG3 antibodies specific mostly for a single linear epitope E2EP3. E2EP3 is located at the N-terminus of the E2 glycoprotein and prominently exposed on the viral envelope. E2EP3-specific antibodies are neutralizing and their removal from ...

A Modular One-Generation Reproduction Study As A Flexible Testing System For Regulatory Safety Assessment, Richard Vogel, Troy Seidle, Horst Spielmann

EXPERIMENTATION

The European Union’s Registration, Evaluation and Authorisation of Chemicals (REACH) legislation mandates testing and evaluation of approximately 30,000 existing substances within a short period of time, beginning with the most widely used “high production volume” (HPV) chemicals. REACH testing requirements for the roughly 3000 HPV chemicals specify three separate tests for reproductive toxicity: two developmental toxicity studies on different animal species (OECD Test Guideline 414) and a two-generation reproduction toxicity study (OECD TG 416). These studies are highly costly in both economic and animal welfare terms. OECD TG 416 is a fertility study intended to evaluate reproductive performance ...
