Awareness of Cervical Cancer Causes and Predeterminants of Likelihood to Screen Among Women in Haiti.
(Journal of lower genital tract disease, 2017-01)
Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths among women in Haiti. Given this high disease burden, we sought to better understand women's knowledge of its causes and the sociodemographic and health correlates of ...
Emergency physician high pretest probability for acute coronary syndrome correlates with adverse cardiovascular outcomes.
(Academic emergency medicine : official journal of the Society for Academic Emergency Medicine, 2009-08)
OBJECTIVES: The value of unstructured physician estimate of risk for disease processes, other than acute coronary syndrome (ACS), has been demonstrated. The authors sought to evaluate the predictive value of unstructured ...
Modeling endocrine control of the pituitary-ovarian axis: androgenic influence and chaotic dynamics.
(Bulletin of mathematical biology, 2014-01)
Mathematical models of the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis in women were first developed by Schlosser and Selgrade in 1999, with subsequent models of Harris-Clark et al. (Bull. Math. Biol. 65(1):157-173, 2003) and Pasteur ...
Inhibition of Neu-induced mammary carcinogenesis in transgenic mice expressing ERΔ3, a dominant negative estrogen receptor α variant.
(Hormones & cancer, 2012-12)
The estrogen receptor α (ERα) splicing variant with an in-frame deletion of exon 3 (ERΔ3) is frequently expressed in the normal breast, but its influence on tumorigenesis has not been explored. In vitro, ERΔ3 has dominant ...
A putatively functional polymorphism in the HTR2C gene is associated with depressive symptoms in white females reporting significant life stress.
(PloS one, 2014-01)
Psychosocial stress is well known to be positively associated with subsequent depressive symptoms. Cortisol response to stress may be one of a number of biological mechanisms that links psychological stress to depressive ...
Predictive Modeling of Length of Hospital Stay Following Adult Spinal Deformity Correction: Analysis of 653 Patients with an Accuracy of 75% within 2 Days.
(World neurosurgery, 2018-07)
Length of stay (LOS) after surgery for adult spinal deformity (ASD) is a critical period that allows for optimal recovery. Predictive models that estimate LOS allow for stratification of high-risk patients.A prospectively ...
Personal DNA testing in college classrooms: perspectives of students and professors.
(Genetic testing and molecular biomarkers, 2013-06)
Discourse on the integration of personal genetics and genomics into classrooms is increasing; however, limited data have been collected on the perspectives of students and professors. We conducted a cross-sectional survey ...
Peak Timing for Complications After Adult Spinal Deformity Surgery.
(World neurosurgery, 2018-07)
Overall complication rates for adult spinal deformity (ASD) surgery have been reported; however, little data exist on the peak timing associated with specific complications. This study quantifies the peak timing for multiple ...
A craniofacial-specific monosynaptic circuit enables heightened affective pain.
(Nature neuroscience, 2017-12)
Humans often rank craniofacial pain as more severe than body pain. Evidence suggests that a stimulus of the same intensity induces stronger pain in the face than in the body. However, the underlying neural circuitry for ...
