The Medical Students, Cancer Control, and the Deaf Community Training program (DCT) intended to create physicians who were culturally competent to care for deaf patients were evaluated. DCT medical students (n = 22), UCSD medical faculty (n = 131), and non-DCT medical students (n = 211) were anonymously surveyed about their perceptions related to deaf(More)
Numerous genes expressed by intestinal epithelial cells are developmentally regulated, and the influence that adaptive (AI) and passive (PI) immunity have in controlling their expression has not been evaluated. In this study, we tested the hypothesis that both PI and AI influenced enterocyte gene expression by developing a breeding scheme that used T and B(More)
The microflorae in the intestine of breast-fed infants are distinct from those that typically populate the intestine of formula-fed infants. Although the acquisition of passive immunity through breast-feeding may play a critical role in influencing the pattern of bacterial colonization of the gut, the precise mechanisms underlying the differences in the(More)
The mixed-ligand system NiCl(2)(dppp)/dppf is shown to be an effective catalyst for the neopentylglycolborylation of ortho-, meta-, and para-substituted electron-rich and electron-deficient aryl mesylates and tosylates. The addition of Zn powder as a reductant dramatically increases the reaction yield and reduces the reaction time by more than an order of(More)
The highly active mixed-ligand catalytic system NiCl2(dppp)/dppf combined with the reducing effect of zerovalent Zn and of other metals was used to demonstrate a method for the dramatic acceleration of the rate and for the enhancement of the yield of Ni-catalyzed neopentylglycolborylation of aryl halides. A diversity of electron-rich and electron-deficient(More)
