Smoking Cessation Intervention in Public Housing

2014-07-23 21:11:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The major aim of this study is to test the effectiveness of a bundled, multi-level intervention (Sister to Sister) on smoking cessation outcomes in female smokers residing in public housing neighborhoods.

Hypothesis 1.1: As compared to the control group, women receiving the Sister to Sister Intervention will have higher 7-day point prevalence quit rates at 6- and 12-months as validated by salivary cotinine.

Hypothesis 1.2: As compared to the control group, women receiving the Sister to Sister Intervention will have higher 6- and 12-month prolonged smoking abstinence as validated by salivary cotinine.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An exchange of segments between the sister chromatids of a chromosome, either between the sister chromatids of a meiotic tetrad or between the sister chromatids of a duplicated somatic chromosome. Its frequency is increased by ultraviolet and ionizing radiation and other mutagenic agents and is particularly high in BLOOM SYNDROME.

Securin is involved in the control of the metaphase-anaphase transition during MITOSIS. It promotes the onset of anaphase by blocking SEPARASE function and preventing proteolysis of cohesin and separation of sister CHROMATIDS. Overexpression of securin is associated with NEOPLASTIC CELL TRANSFORMATION and tumor formation.

Metastatic lesion of the UMBILICUS associated with intra-abdominal neoplasms especially of the GASTROINTESTINAL TRACT or OVARY.

Repair of DNA DAMAGE by exchange of DNA between matching sequences, usually between the allelic DNA (ALLELES) of sister chromatids.

The sites in a dividing cell where the minus ends of the spindle MICROTUBULES assemble and where the separated sister CHROMATIDS converge.
