The objective of this trial is to assess the pharmacokinetics of a single dose of 10 mg Staccato Loxapine administered to smokers compared to nonsmokers.
Background: - Self-report and biochemical verification are used to determine smoking status in treatment trials and clinical research. Each method has merits and limitations that make it appropriate for particular situations. Participants who feel social pressure to report tobacco abstinence may provide unreliable self-reporting results. Biochemical verification using breath carbon monoxide (CO) is a more reliable indicator, but several biolog...
To identify individual genes that contribute to variation in susceptibility to coronary heart disease (CHD) in Mexican Americans. The program project grant supports the San Antonio Family Heart Study, the first comprehensive genetic epidemiological study of atherosclerosis and its correlates in Mexican Americans.
The Dietary Guidelines for Americans provide recommendations for making better food and physical activity choices that promote health and help prevent disease. Yet, few Americans meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans (DGA) and a large percentage are overweight.
A research study designed to examine amphetamine-induced dopamine release using the PET imaging agent [11C]PHNO in tobacco smokers while currently smoking and during acute withdrawal and in nonsmokers. Twenty healthy men and women tobacco smokers and twenty healthy nonsmokers will be recruited. Each subject will participate in 1 MRI and up to 2 [11C]PHNO PET scans. On the study day subjects will participate in two [11C]PHNO scans (ideally, the two PET scans will be carried out ...
Background: - Many cigarette smokers claim that smoking helps them stay alert and improves their concentration, and have reported problems in attention and concentration after quitting smoking. Some research has indicated that nicotine can enhance certain aspects of attention and memory in humans. However, more research is needed to determine how nicotine affects different elements of the brain's ability to pay attention. Knowing which aspects of attention are affected b...
To determine factors beyond obesity which contribute to diabetes and cardiovascular risk in Mexicans and Mexican Americans. To test the hypothesis that at any given level of adiposity Mexican Americans will be more insulin resistant than Anglos and that the insulin resistance in Mexican Americans is proportional to the degree of Native American ancestry.
Heart disease and stroke disproportionately affect African Americans in the United States. These conditions are likely caused by both environmental and genetic factors. This study will attempt to identify specific genes of African and European ancestral origins that may influence the development of heart disease in African Americans.
Two cohorts of patients will be enrolled: Cohort A will consist of patients who are current smokers, and Cohort B will consist of patients who are current nonsmokers. There will be 24 patients enrolled in each cohort. Nonsmokers are patients who have not consumed tobacco or nicotine-containing products for 1 year before the start of the study. Patients classified as current smokers must have smoked a minimum of 10 cigarettes per day for ≥1 year. Patients who have smoked 1...
The purpose of this study is to assess the feasibility and efficacy of a culturally-tailored, comprehensive behavioral intervention program specially designed for linguistically challenged ethnic minority immigrant populations (Korean Americans) with type 2 DM.
Coronary artery disease (CAD) is an important health concern for African Americans, who are diagnosed with CAD at high rates. Coronary artery calcification, which is characterized by calcium deposits in the coronary arteries, is a contributing factor to CAD. This study will examine the possible genetic causes of coronary artery calcification in African Americans.
To conduct a longitudinal study of central obesity and related risk factors found to be associated with hypertension and atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease (ASCVD) in a previously-examined cross-sectional cohort of second-generation Japanese Americans and in a newly-recruited cohort of third generation Japanese Americans.
Diseases such as hypertension and stroke affect mid-life and older African Americans at higher rates than Whites, negatively affecting health status of this group. This project determine the effectiveness of a faith-based health intervention for mid-life and older African Americans using community-based participatory research approaches.
To examine the relationships of obesity and fat patterning with morbidity and mortality in Black Americans.
The objective of this study is to better understand strategies used by African Americans with hypertension in order to control their blood pressure.
This study will test the hypothesis that the administration of a xanthine oxidase inhibitor (allopurinol) will prevent thiazide-induced hyperuricemia, which will result in better blood pressure (BP) control in African Americans.
To identify genes contributing to hypertension in African Americans by focusing on the physiological pathways that determine arterial pressure.
To determine if hereditary susceptibility predisposes African Americans to sarcoidosis and to identify sarcoidosis susceptibility genes in African Americans.
Despite a push for tailored messages, health communications are often aimed at, and viewed by, people with varying levels of risk. This project examined—in the context of radon risk messages—whether information relevant to high-risk individuals can have an unintended influence on lower-risk individuals. Specifically, the investigators assessed whether information about lung-cancer risk from smoking reduced concerns about lung-cancer risk from radon among nonsmokers. The inv...
The investigators hypothesize that opioid use in African-Americans will be associated with hypodopaminergic alleles that alter the threshold for activating feelings of reward and pleasure within the dopaminergic system, and that these allelic frequencies will differ significantly from European Americans. Planned is a targeted system to study genetic risks for reward deficiency using risk gene panel to assign a genetic addiction risk score (GARS), comprehensive surveys to determ...
The purpose of this study is to examine complementary and alternative medicine use among older Mexican Americans and to determine how this use influences physical, functional, and mental health.
The purpose of this study is to conduct a pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) that provides the feasibility, safety, and preliminary efficacy data required to design a large scale trial evaluating Tai Chi for Chinese Americans with major depressive disorder (MDD) who are not on antidepressant medications.
The purpose of this pilot study is to evaluate an innovative 8-wk stress reduction program called Resilience, Stress and Ethnicity (RiSE) program designed to reduce chronic stress associated with perceived discrimination among African Americans. African Americans residing in the Maywood community between the ages of 25 and 75 with at least one cardiovascular disease risk factor such as being overweight, having high blood pressure, or diabetes will be enrolled. The following spe...
Black Americans tend to die more often from and have more diseases associated with heart disease than White Americans. The exact cause of this is unknown, but it is likely a combination of genetics, behavior, risk factors, strategies for education and prevention, and socioeconomic factors. Recent studies have suggested that faster biological processes in blood vessels of Black Americans may be the cause of increased amounts of heart disease. In addition, small blood ve...
Although acetaminophen is the most commonly used nonprescription drug in the USA, little is known regarding the influence of genes and race/ethnicity on acetaminophen disposition. The investigators long-term goal is to understand the causes of differences in acetaminophen disposition between people that are the result of genetic variation and ethnicity and may predispose individuals to a higher risk of acetaminophen hepatotoxicity. The aim of this particular study is to measur...
