This study will assess the ability of naltrexone (Revia) to reduce the risk of relapse in Alaska natives with alcohol dependence. The study will also examine whether a combination of naltrexone and sertraline (Zoloft) yields better abstinence rates than naltrexone used alone. Alaska Native individuals will be recruited into a 16 week outpatient study.
The goal of the Alaska Native Resilience Research Study (ANRRS) is to identify community-level protective factors that can most effectively reduce co-occurring youth suicide and alcohol risk. The following specific aims will help us achieve this overarching goal. The research team will: (1): Assess the association of a set of modifiable cultural, community and institutional factors (protective community factors) with suicide, suicidal behaviors (ideation, attempt), and associat...
The purpose of this study is to modify an existing Reproductive Health intervention for adolescents with diabetes for Gestational Diabetes and make it culturally appropriate American Indian/Alaska Native adolescents. The intervention will then be evaluated for effectiveness in AI/AN female teens at risk for GDM.
The purpose of this study is to conduct a community based, randomized control trial to determine if the use of chlorhexidine mouth rinse and xylitol-sweetened chewing gum will reduce the vertical transmission of caries between Alaska Native mothers to their infants.
This study will develop a culturally appropriate tobacco cessation behavioral intervention for Alaska Native women who are pregnant and who use tobacco. We will examine the feasibility of the intervention in terms of recruitment and retention of participants, acceptability to patients and prenatal health care providers, and the potential effectiveness of the tobacco use intervention.
Hib disease rates in rural Alaska before introduction of HIb conjugate vaccine were among the highest in the world. Since vaccine introduction, rates have fallen by 90% but the disease has not been eliminated. This study is designed to test one possible means of eliminating Hib carriage and thus to eliminate person to person transmission and invasive disease. The objective of this study is to evaluate the effectiveness of community-wide use of Hib conjugate vaccine for...
Method for diagnostics of the origin of infections (bacterial vs viral) based on the identification of activation markers of blood neutrophils and monocytes will be developed.
This study is to evaluate the safety, immunogenicity and impact of 13-valent Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine in Alaska Native Children.
This study evaluates the effectiveness of coaching and Voices for Food materials on establishing Food Policy Councils (FPCs) and using guided client choice in rural food pantries to improve food security and diet quality among food pantry clients, and to improve the food environment in rural, midwestern food pantries. Half of the communities received coaching and the Voices for Food kit, the other half only received the Voices for Food kit.
Major Research Aim: To study novel molecular diagnostics and the pharmacokinetic variability among a spectrum of TB disease states, including severe forms of TB like disseminated TB, TB meningitis and drug resistant TB, among adults and children from multiple international sites.
This mixed-methods, multi-state study will develop and evaluate culturally tailored recruitment materials and test their effectiveness for a) engaging American Indian and Alaska Native participants in a culturally tailored recruitment and engagement module focused on Alzheimer's Disease and Precision Medicine (AD-PM); b) enhancing enrollment in AD-PM clinical trials; and c) improving knowledge and attitudes about AD and PM.
The prevalence of smoking among US adults is highest among American Indians and Alaska Native (AI/AN) persons; however, there are a lack of tobacco cessation interventions developed specific to this disparity group. Social media holds promise as a scalable intervention strategy to promote engagement in treatment and cessation outcomes for Alaska Native (AN) people. Researchers plan to develop and pilot test a culturally relevant, Facebook delivered intervention to promot...
The population in rural Alaska, which is predominately Alaska Native, experiences a disproportionately high burden of hearing loss compared to the general US population. The impact of untreated hearing loss in early childhood is tremendous and has grave implications for school achievement. Preschool children with hearing loss experience speech and language delays and are less likely to be ready for kindergarten than their normal-hearing peers. Early identification and treatment...
With a completely bedside blood culture diagnostics system (BACTEC blood culture system in combination with the Accelerate ID/AST System) it is possible to optimize the initial antimicrobial therapy in patients with sepsis and septic shock. Prospective observational, open-label mono-center study to compare a completely bedside blood culture diagnostics system (BACTEC blood culture system in combination with the Accelerate ID/AST System and Curetis Univero System) with standard...
The purpose of this study is to assess the performance of the HTLV Blot 2.4 from patients with the following conditions: infected with HTLV and neurological conditions with symptoms similar to HTLV infection.
NiSAR is a Ph.D. study and consists of three substudies. Renal cancer is one of the most deadly urologic malignancies and accounts for 900 new cases and 300 deaths per year. An increase in the use of imaging diagnostics has yielded a rise in the incidental detection of small renal masses (SRM), meaning tumors
HIV Point-of-Care tests in Babies Study (BABY) - Operational evaluation of HIV Point-of-Care tests for very early infant HIV diagnostics in infants born to HIV infected mothers in Mbeya, Tanzania.

Hearing loss is a common health problem in Alaska. Up to 75% of children growing up in Alaskan villages experience frequent ear infections, one of the major treatable causes of hearing loss. Children with even mild hearing loss face many challenges. These children often experience speech and language delays and have trouble in school. Teens with hearing loss are more likely to drop out of school, and are at risk for having difficulty finding jobs as adults. Promptly diagnosing ...
