Also, the investigators would like to find out whether these changes are useful in the diagnosis and treatment of eye diseases. Using images of previous participants will allow us to demonstrate the advancement of different technologies, as well be used to allow comparisons between current technologies.
The purpose of this study is to test if sexual health interventions can reduce the incidence of STIs among African American teens (15 to 21 years old). By doing this study, we hope to help African American teens improve their condom use skills and encourage them to use condoms more frequently. If the number of STIs in this population can be decreased, the health of African American teen males will greatly improve. We also believe that sexual partners (typically African American...
The purposes of this study are: a) to develop a statewide Biobank for prostate cancer among men of African Ancestry in Florida and; b) to examine whether smoking increases the aggressiveness of prostate cancer using several biological approaches. Investigators plan to contact African American prostate cancer patients regarding participation. This project has 3 main components. Eligible patients may choose to participate in any or all parts of the study: Questionnaires; Saliva ...
Gestational diabetes (GDM) is a condition of carbohydrate intolerance with onset or first recognition in pregnancy. The prevalence of GDM is as high as 25% in some populations and continues to rise with the increase in obesity and type-2 diabetes. GDM places the pregnancy at great risk to both the mother and the neonate. Recent studies have proven that interventions including dietary and medications lower the risk to the pregnancy. Both the American College of Obstetrics and Gy...
RSH/Smith-Lemli-Opitz syndrome (SLOS) is one that causes mental retardation. It is common in the Caucasian population but rare in African American and African black populations. It has been shown that SLOS is caused by a specific defect in DHCR7, an enzyme used in cholesterol metabolism. Studies have already been done to determine the frequency of the SLOS-causing mutations in various geographic Caucasian populations. This study will investigate the frequency of the DHCR7 mutat...

The investigators propose a social network-based PrEP adherence intervention as part of a comprehensive, context-specific approach to HIV prevention for TW in Lima, Peru. In order to be effective, PrEP-based prevention strategies need to address not only biological efficacy, but also individual behavioral decision-making processes, interpersonal partnership contexts of risk, peer norms of sexual behavior and PrEP adherence, and structural access to prevention technologies. Usin...
African American men are at risk of developing chronic disease partly due to low levels of regular physical activity. Studies have been effective in increasing physical activity levels in African American men; however for the health benefits of exercise to be maintained continued physical activity is necessary. The purpose of the current study is to develop a mobile phone application for African American men that will help them maintain their physical activity levels.
