Alcohol and drug use are associated with increased risk of HIV/AIDS. American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN) have high rates of alcohol and other drug use, as well as a high incidence of unsafe sex behaviors and injection drug use practices. Indicators of AI/AN HIV risks involving sexual activity include high rates of STDs, such as gonorrhea, chlamydia,(More)
The growth arrest special 5 (GAS5) is known to be involved in various cancers. However, its expression regulation remains unclear. Polymorphisms in the promoter region of GAS5 may affect its expression and be associated with cancer susceptibility. In this research, we first evaluated the association of a 5-base pair indel polymorphism (rs145204276) in the(More)
Estradiol-17beta (E(2)beta) and its metabolites, which are sequentially synthesized by cytochrome P450s and catechol-O-methyltransferase to form 2 and 4-hydroxyestradiol (OHE(2)) and 2- and 4-methoxestradiol (ME(2)), are elevated during pregnancy. We investigated whether cytochrome P450s and catechol-O-methyltransferase are expressed in uterine artery(More)
The relationship of intimate partner violence (IPV) with mental disorders was investigated among 234 American Indian/Alaska Native female primary care patients. Results indicated that unadjusted prevalence ratios for severe physical or sexual abuse (relative to no IPV) were significant for anxiety, PTSD, mood, and any mental disorder. Adjusted prevalence(More)
OBJECTIVES Risk factors for human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) disease progression among American Indians (AIs) have been poorly characterized. We assessed the impact of socioeconomic factors and use of traditional healing on HIV disease progression in a rural AI community. METHODS From January 2004 through December 2006, we interviewed 36 HIV-positive(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship of two types of social support (emotional and instrumental) and two types of social undermining (critical appraisal and isolation) with five categories of alcohol, drug, or mental disorders (ADM; any mood, any anxiety, any substance abuse, any disorder, and two or more disorders) in 169 American(More)
The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with 4 clusters of obstacles (self-reliance, privacy issues, quality of care, and communication and trust) to mental health and substance abuse treatment in 3 treatment sectors for residents of 3 reservations in the United States. Participants (N=3,084) disclosed whether they had sought treatment(More)
Rehabilitation of stroke survivors has been increasing in importance in recent years with increase in the occurrence of stroke. However, current clinical classification assessment is time-consuming while the result is not accurate and varies across physicians. This paper introduces an IoT-based upper limb rehabilitation assessment system for stroke(More)
Automatic modulation classification (AMC) acts as a critical role in cognitive radio network, which has many civilian and military applications including signal demodulation and interference identification. In this paper, we explore a novel feature based (FB) AMC method using multi-gene genetic programming (MGGP) and multinomial logistic regression (MLR)(More)
This study sought to identify obstacles associated with alcohol, drug, and mental (ADM) health care utilization in three treatment sectors for residents on three reservations in the United States. Participants (N 224) disclosed that they had sought treatment for ADM problems in the past year and identified obstacles they faced during this process. Four(More)
