Ethanolamine is released to the external medium at increased rates over basal levels when [3H]ethanolamine-labelled glial cells in primary culture, subcultures of astrocytes and O-2A lineage glia or C6 glioma cells are treated with phorbol ester or foetal calf serum. On equilibrium labelling of mixed glial cultures 90-95% of incorporated [3H]ethanolamine(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to examine (1) the extent to which caregivers and children asked asthma management questions during pediatric asthma visits; (2) the extent to which providers engaged in shared decision-making with these caregivers and children; and (3) the factors associated with question asking and shared decision-making.

Little is known about how ophthalmologist-patient communication over time is associated with glaucoma patient long-term adherence. The purpose of our study was to examine the association between provider use of components of the resources and supports in self-management model when communicating with patients and adherence to glaucoma medications measured(More)
PURPOSE Glaucoma medications can improve clinical outcomes when patients adhere to their medication regimen. Providers often ask patients with glaucoma to self-report their adherence, but the accuracy of self-reporting has received little scientific attention. The purpose of this article was to compare a self-reported medication adherence measure with(More)
Ethanolamine as well as choline is released to the external medium on phorbol ester and foetal calf serum stimulation of glial cells in primary culture. Stimulation of protein kinase C (PKC) in a variety of cells causes enhanced catabolism of phosphatidyl-choline [ 1,2]. Diacylglycerol (DAG) released from phos-phatidylcholine turnover functions as a second(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this preliminary study was to describe the extent to which providers used collaborative goal setting and individualized assessment with patients who were newly prescribed glaucoma medications. METHODS English-speaking glaucoma suspect patients from six ophthalmology clinics who were newly prescribed glaucoma medications had their(More)
