INTRODUCTION Mammography is underused by certain groups of women, in particular poor and minority women. We developed a lay health advisor (LHA) intervention based on behavioral theories and tested whether it improved mammography attendance in Robeson County, NC, a rural, low-income, triracial (white, Native American, African American) population.

Investigations examining the influence of 5-HT1A receptors in murine agonistic and social behavior have reported either specific or nonspecific attenuation of offensive behavior. To clarify this situation, the effects of three 5-HT1A agonists were examined on isolation-induced aggression and social behavior in male mice. 8-OH-DPAT (0.025-1.25 mg/kg)(More)
Latent inhibition (LI) is a measure of reduced learning about a stimulus to which there has been prior exposure without any consequence. It therefore requires a comparison between a pre-exposed (PE) and a non-pre-exposed (NPE) condition. Since, in animals, LI is disrupted by amphetamines and enhanced by antipsychotics, LI disruption has been proposed as a(More)
BACKGROUND Low-income, minority, and rural women face a greater burden with regard to cancer-related morbidity and mortality and are usually underrepresented in cancer control research. The Robeson County Outreach, Screening and Education Project sought to increase mammography use among low-income, minority, and rural women age > 40 years. The current(More)
OBJECTIVE To characterize the clinical and pathologic features of cadaveric keratolimbal allograft (KLAL) rejection. DESIGN The study design is descriptive. PARTICIPANTS Four patients (five eyes) with KLAL rejection are reported. INTERVENTION All patients were subjected to slit-lamp biomicroscopy, treatment of rejection, and ultimately required repeat(More)
Although it has been previously proposed that 5-HT1B agonism specifically attenuates rodent agonistic behaviour, more recent investigations have indicated that such influences may be ancillary to an anxiogenic effect. The present study examined the influences of two 5-HT1B agonists, CGS 12066B and CP-94,253, on murine agonistic behaviour. In a(More)
The present experiments investigated clozapine (2.5, 5 and 10 mg/kg) and haloperidol (0.1 mg/kg) administration on latent inhibition (LI) in rats. Clozapine's ability to antagonize amphetamine-induced disruption of LI was also assessed. A conditioned emotional response procedure was employed. In the pre-exposure stage, 'pre-exposed' rats received 10(More)
