There are only two commercially available, ready-to-use culture media which are approved by the Food and Drug Administration for clinical diagnosis of vaginal trichomoniasis: Kupferberg's STS and Diamond's medium (modified). Diamond's medium (Klaas modification), recommended by the Centers for Disease Control for the isolation of Trichomonas vaginalis, was… (More)
PURPOSE This study compared the intraocular pressure (IOP)-lowering efficacy of 2 fixed combination products, brinzolamide 1%/timolol 0.5% suspension (Azarga, Brinz/Tim) and dorzolamide 2%/timolol 0.5% solution (Dorz/Tim), in patients with open-angle glaucoma or ocular hypertension who required a change in therapy due to elevated IOP while receiving… (More)
The same criteria for identifying bacterial vaginosis are often present in women with trichomoniasis. These criteria include elevated vaginal pH, vaginal odor, homogeneous discharge, increased anaerobic bacteriologic vaginal flora, and elevated levels of bacterial enzymes. Clinically mixed vaginal infections occur, and because the treatment for these two… (More)
OBJECTIVE Two methods which only consider bacterial morphotypes and require counting various types of bacteria, for interpreting Gram stains of vaginal secretions for the purpose of diagnosing bacterial vaginosis were previously described. A new interpretative method, which combines clue cells with bacterial morphotypes as diagnostic markers, is offered. … (More)
A comparison was made of two brands of pH test paper and electronic instrumentation for measuring the pH of vaginal secretions. When the pH of vaginal secretions was greater than 4.5 (abnormal), there was no significant difference between the methods, showing that pH test paper is reliable for pH determination of vaginal secretions.
Culturally competent health interventions require an understanding of the population’s beliefs and the pressures they experience. Research to date on the health-related beliefs and experiences of clergy lacks a comprehensive data-driven model of clergy health. Eleven focus groups with 59 United Methodist Church (UMC) pastors and 29 UMC District… (More)
A study was undertaken to determine which fermentation products in vaginal secretions serve as the best markers for bacterial vaginosis. Three categories of markers had been previously identified, but due to cost considerations it was necessary to accurately determine if analysis for all three were necessary. With the use of vaginal secretions from… (More)
Research indicating high rates of chronic disease among some clergy groups highlights the need for health programming for clergy. Like any group united by similar beliefs and norms, clergy may find culturally tailored health programming more accessible and effective. There is an absence of research on what aspects clergy find important for clergy health… (More)
Diamond's medium modified, the commercially available version of the Klaas modification of Diamond's medium, was compared to Kupferberg medium and to direct wet-mount examination for detection of trichomonads in symptomatic patients. Diamond's medium was found to be superior to both Kupferberg medium (P less than 10(-4) and wet mount (P less than 10(-6].
The gross, proximate, fatty acids and cholesterol composition of three raw retail cuts from 28 lambs classified by weight, sex and fatness score were investigated. For gross composition, cut weight increased significantly with fat score and carcass weight. Percentage fat increased significantly from fat score 1-2 but not beyond (P<0.05). For nutrient… (More)
