It is suggested that depression is linked to patients' perception of controllability of their illness and absorption of cultural stereotypes of mental(More)
We have physically mapped and cloned a 2.5-Mb chromosomal segment flanking the centromeric end of the major histocompatibility complex (MHC). We characterized in detail 27 YACs, 144 cosmids, 51 PACs, and 5 BACs, which will facilitate the complete genomic sequencing of this region of chromosome 6. The contig contains the genes encoding CSBP, p21, HSU09564(More)
Loci conferring susceptibility to schizophrenia, coeliac disease, and orofacial clefting have been assigned to the 6p23-p25 region of human chromosome 6. To facilitate the identification of candidate genes we have sublocalized and ordered 39 ESTs assigned to this interval by radiation hybrid mapping. This was achieved by generating PAC contigs containing(More)
This article describes a distributed model clinical curriculum developed by the College of Veterinary Medicine, Western University of Health Sciences (CVMWU), and presents outcome data for the 2005/2006 academic year. Extramural clinical education requires close institutional involvement, including planning, formulation of learning objectives, selection of(More)
