Chemical compound and disease context of New Mexico


Biological context of New Mexico

  • Nucleotide sequence analysis of 630 bases of the env gene encoding the gp21 protein was done on DNA from 12 New Mexico Indians (8 Pueblo, 4 Navajo) [17].
  • 6. The results show that ADH and ALDH phenotypes among American Indians living in New Mexico are very similar to those of Caucasian populations and quite different from those of Orientals [18].
  • A nonrandomized controlled trial using historical controls was conducted in a model family practice clinic at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in Albuquerque. The study group (n = 389) included adult women who had been seen at the clinic at a time when educational materials were present in the waiting area [19].
  • Cellular, animal, and human radiobiology studies are in progress at the Los Alamos Meson Physics Facility as part of a joint University of New Mexico and Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory pion therapy project [20].
  • The Cerro Grande wildfire in May of 2000 burned across ponderosa pine (Pinus ponderosa Douglas ex P.&C. Lawson var. scopulorum Englem.) forest within Los Alamos National Laboratory in northern New Mexico, where contaminant transport and associated post-fire inhalation risks are of concern [21].

Anatomical context of New Mexico

  • This paper summarizes radionuclide concentrations (3H, 90Sr, 137Cs, 238Pu, 239,240Pu, 241Am, and totU) in muscle and bone tissue of mule deer (Odocoileus hemionus) and Rocky Mountain elk (Cervus elaphus) collected from Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Los Alamos, New Mexico, lands from 1991 through 1998 [22].

Associations of New Mexico with chemical compounds

  • Quantitative assessment of exposure to dog (Can f 1) and cat (Fel d 1) allergens: relation to sensitization and asthma among children living in Los Alamos, New Mexico [23].
  • Effects of age, breast density, ethnicity, and estrogen replacement therapy on screening mammographic sensitivity and cancer stage at diagnosis: review of 183,134 screening mammograms in Albuquerque, New Mexico [24].
  • Problem-based medical education began as a revision of the McMaster University medical curriculum in 1969 and was instituted in the United States as a problem-based experimental track at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine in 1979 [25].
  • Nitrate inhibited U(VI) reduction in acetate-amended aquifer sediments collected from a uranium-contaminated site in New Mexico. Once nitrate was depleted, both U(VI) and Fe(III) were reduced concurrently [26].
  • Acute fluoride poisoning in a New Mexico elementary school [27].

Gene context of New Mexico

  • Alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH) and aldehyde dehydrogenase (ALDH) isoenzyme phenotypes were determined in autopsy liver samples from 50 North American Indians from New Mexico. Forty-six of the 50 livers had sufficient ADH activity to allow phenotyping at the ADH2 and ADH3 loci [18].
  • Despite this similarity in environment, melanic mice from the three New Mexico populations were slightly, but significantly, darker than melanic mice from Arizona. The entire Mc1r gene was sequenced in all mice [28].
  • In this study, we determined the biologic activity of dichloromethane-extracted particulate matter < 10 micro m in aerodynamic diameter (PM10) obtained from filters at three sites in the Paso del Norte airshed, which includes El Paso, Texas, USA; Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, and Sunland Park, New Mexico, USA [29].
  • Between 1969 and 1993, 1171 patients with papillary (including mixed) or follicular thyroid cancer were reported to the New Mexico Tumor Registry [30].
  • (N Engl J Med 296:581--587, 1977) reported a reduction in coronary heart disease mortality in New Mexico white males with an increase in altitude [31].
