OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effects of genetic counseling and testing in African American women based on different levels of exposure: (a) women who were randomized to culturally tailored (CTGC) and standard genetic counseling (SGC)(More)
Vascular bed reactivity to exogenous LTD4 and blockade of these responses by a selective LTD4 receptor antagonist, SK&F 104353, were studied. Yorkshire pigs (N = 13; 25.8 +/- 1.4 kg) were anesthetized with isoflurane, and monitored for cardiac output (CO), mean pulmonary artery pressure (MPAP), pulmonary capillary wedge pressure (PCWP), right ventricular(More)
Reports of changes in emotional support following surgery for breast cancer can be attributed to one of two factors: (1) the stigma associated with cancer, or (2) illness-imposed restrictions in one's activities. These explanations were assessed using data from a longitudinal study of women, following their surgical treatment for early breast cancer (N =(More)
The effect of a selective LTD4 receptor antagonist SK & F104353 was studied in septic pigs anesthetized with isoflurane. Yorkshire pigs (25.2 +/- 2.3 kg) were instrumented and monitored for cardiac output (CO), mean arterial pressure (MAP), systemic vascular resistance (SVR), mean pulmonary arterial pressure (MPAP), pulmonary vascular resistance (PVR),(More)
