HLA-B35 Alleles and AIDS

This study will identify variations in the genome of the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) early after infection and following the development of AIDS. It will analyze genetic material and clinical data from HIV-positive individuals to assess differences in viral epitopes between patients with two different gene alleles (alternative forms of a gene)-B*3501 and B*3503. (An epitope is a molecular region on the surface of an antigen capable of eliciting an immune response and of ...

Safer school environments, however, can decrease this risk. This study capitalizes on the critical role of school nurses in improving the mental health of this vulnerable population through implementation and sustainment of evidence-based strategies to enhance school environments. In addition to suicide, the conceptual framework and m...

MRI of Alzheimer's Disease Imaging Amyloid Plaques in Persons With and Without Memory Problems

The study will investigate the possibility of detecting early signs of Alzheimer's disease using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). If plaques, types of damage, can be imaged by MRI, the procedure could be used in clinical trials and may also help in the clinical diagnosis of patients. Alzheimer's disease, a progressive disease, is a major cause of functional disability and institutionalization, affecting 4.5 million people in the United States, a number that will more than trip...

Reducing Childhood Hearing Loss in an Alaska Native Population Through a New School Screening and Referral Process That Utilizes Mobile Health and Telemedicine

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 ...

Iodine Status in Portuguese Children and the Role of Salt Fortification in School Canteens

It is well known that insufficient iodine intakes impairs the production of thyroid hormones, essential for cognitive development and healthy growth. Although the World Health Organization (WHO) promotes public health measures for an adequate iodine consumption, it is estimated that one in three school age children remain iodine deficient worldwide. Whereas there is no mandatory iodisation programs in Portugal, young infants are among the most vulnerable to iodine deficiency d...

In the health field, the self-regulation (SR) construct can contribute to the understanding of life habits which can affect the improvement of individuals' health. Thi...

Pharmacokinetic Issues of Moxifloxacin Plus Rifapentine

The purpose of this study is to determine the pharmacokinetics (how a drug is absorbed, distributed, and eliminated by the body) of moxifloxacin alone versus moxifloxacin given with rifapentine. Researchers believe that understanding how these tuberculosis drugs interact when given together may help to determine the best drug treatment plan for use in future studies. Volunteers will take moxifloxacin daily by mouth for the first part of the study and then moxifloxacin in combin...

Mindfulness Training to Promote Healthy Diet and Physical Activity in Teens

This project will compare the preliminary efficacy of a novel school-delivered intervention, mindfulness plus health education intervention, to health education alone on dietary and physical activity habits in adolescents. This study has important public health implications because of the negative consequences of unhealthy diets and lack of exercise on health, such as obesity, cardiovascular disease and diabetes. If effective, this intervention has high potential for translat...
