We evaluated the effects of RRR-alpha-tocpheryl acetate (alpha-tocopheryl acetate) and hormone-replacement therapy (HRT) on the oxidative susceptibility of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in postmenopausal women consuming a fish oil supplement. The independent effect of fish oil was also assessed. Forty-eight women, equally divided between women using and not(More)
BACKGROUND The Patient Assessment of Chronic Illness Care (PACIC) is a US measure of chronic illness quality of care, based on the influential Chronic Care Model (CCM). It measures a number of aspects of care, including patient activation; delivery system design and decision support; goal setting and tailoring; problem-solving and contextual counselling;(More)
The role of kappa-opioid receptors (KOR) in the regulation of alcohol-related behaviors is not completely understood. For example, alcohol consumption has been reported to increase following treatment with KOR antagonists in rats, but was decreased in mice with genetic deletion of KOR. Recent studies have further suggested that KOR antagonists may(More)
Genetic inactivation or pharmacological antagonism of neurokinin 1 (NK1) receptors blocks morphine and alcohol reward in rodents, while NK1 antagonism decreases alcohol craving in humans. The role of the NK1 system for relapse-like behavior has not previously been examined. Divergence between human and rodent NK1 receptors has limited the utility of NK1(More)
Effects of infusion of a lipid emulsion into ewes during mid-to late diestrus on serum concentrations of total cholesterol (TC), progesterone (P4), prostaglandin (PG) F2 alpha metabolite (PGFM), and PGE2, and on ovulation rate were examined. In experiment 1, ewes received infusions of either saline (S, n = 3) or soybean oil emulsion (SB, n = 3) for 5 h on(More)
OSU 5062, a green bean line with a tendency for pods to become creasebacked (wider than deep) in cross-section, was crossed to near-round-podded cultivars ‘Oregon 83’ and ‘Slenderette’, oval-podded ‘Bountiful’, and flat-podded ‘Roma’, to further clarify the inheritance of pod cross-section. Differences among generations in pod cross-section index (PCS),(More)
BACKGROUND Genetic deletion or antagonism of the neurokinin 1 receptor (NK1R) decreases alcohol intake, alcohol reward, and stress-induced alcohol relapse in rodents, while TACR1 variation is associated with alcoholism in humans. METHODS We used L822429, a specific antagonist with high affinity for the rat NK1R, and examined whether sensitivity to NK1R(More)
Examined the validity of adolescents' reports of their mother's age. Most research on the validity of self-report focuses on personal behaviors such as alcohol and substance use, or response bias due to social desirability. Few studies investigate the validity of adolescents reporting of nonsensitive information. Data from 80 mother-adolescent pairs were(More)
BACKGROUND Antibodies of the Knops system have been referred to as nonneutralizable because they cannot be inhibited with serum, saliva, or urine. Because the Knops system antigens have been located on complement receptor 1 (CR1), the question of whether the antibodies could be neutralized with soluble CR1 (sCR1) produced by recombinant DNA techniques was(More)
