Disease relevance of Rhode Island


Psychiatry related information on Rhode Island


High impact information on Rhode Island

  • Allele-specific PCR and sequence analyses demonstrated that the exon 1 mutation is present in only one of the C5 null genes in both the Rhode Island and North Carolina families, and the exon 36 mutation is contained in only one C5 null gene in the New York family [10].
  • The application of the assay to nonhuman samples demonstrated products amplified from template DNA extracted from Ixodes scapularis ticks collected in Rhode Island and from EDTA-blood specimens obtained from white-tailed deer in Maryland. All PCR products were sequenced and identified as specific to granulocytic ehrlichiae [11].
  • Fast-growing heavy (White Rock) chicks, fed a vitamin D-deficient diet, exhibited a higher activity of kidney 25-hydroxycholecalciferol-1-hydroxylase (1-hydroxylase) than slow-growing light (White Leghorn x Rhode Island Red) chicks fed the same diet [12].
  • SETTING: Five methadone maintenance treatment centers in Rhode Island. PARTICIPANTS: Three hundred and eighty-three methadone-maintained smokers [13].
  • PARTICIPANTS: All members enrolled in the Blue Cross Blue Shield Association's Government Wide Service Benefit Program in the states of Oklahoma, Rhode Island, Kentucky, California, Arizona, Utah, and Colorado in October 2002 [14].

Chemical compound and disease context of Rhode Island


Biological context of Rhode Island

  • The possibility of using human beta probes for MHC typing in the chicken was tested by using two homozygous individuals for each of 20 different, serologically defined, MHC (B) haplotypes originating from the domestic breeds of White Leghorn and Rhode Island Red, or from Red Jungle Fowl (the wild ancestral form) [16].
  • SETTING: From 1995 through 2000, several Rhode Island hospitals experienced a fivefold increase in nosocomial acquisition of MRSA PARTICIPANTS: Rhode Island infection control professionals are a highly interactive group in the unique position of sharing patients and ultimately experiencing similar trends and problems [17].
  • METHODS: A pretest preceded a lecture on female pelvic anatomy in the following five groups of obstetrics and gynecology residents: postgraduate year 1 (PGY-1) residents at Women and Infants Hospital of Rhode Island (RI), PGY-1 residents at University of Connecticut (CT), and PGY-2, -3, and -4 residents at RI [18].
  • 1. Oxygen consumption, body temperature, respiratory frequency and respiratory water loss of White Leghorn x Rhode Island hens were measured for short periods at six air temperatures between 2 and 32 degrees C. The hens were kept between tests in an open shed [19].
  • A study involving the use of random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) was conducted to evaluate genetic polymorphism and relatedness within and among four chicken breeds: Araucona, Rhode Island Red, White Leghorn, and White Plymouth Rock, and two turkey populations, a long-term randombred and a commercial strain [20].

Anatomical context of Rhode Island

  • Chicken thrombocytes (98% pure) were prepared from adult Barred Plymouth Rock and Rhode Island Red males [21].
  • The effect of an injection of thyrotrophin releasing hormone (TRH) on plasma levels of thyroid hormones was studied in dwarf and normal Rhode Island Red chickens with similar genotypes other than for the sex-linked dwarf gene dw [22].

Associations of Rhode Island with chemical compounds

  • SETTING: Rhode Island. PARTICIPANTS: A random sample of Blue Cross/Blue Shield providers [23].
  • Eggs were injected with 50 micrograms busulphan at 24-30 h, and at 50-55 h the embryos received an intravascular injection of a germinal crescent cell suspension containing PGCs from Rhode Island Red embryos [24].
  • RESULTS: Usable data were obtained from seven programs in rural and urban locations in seven states: Indiana, Kansas, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Vermont. All programs received high fidelity ratings, ranging from 70 to the maximum value of 75 [25].
  • Liver response to diet and estrogen in white Leghorn and Rhode Island Red chickens [26].
  • Fifty-six small round-cell tumors of bone were selected for study from the files of the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and Rhode Island Hospital; all tissues had been formalin fixed and paraffin embedded [27].

Gene context of Rhode Island

  • To describe the apparent activities of growth hormone (GH)- and prolactin (PRL)-producing cells, pituitaries were collected from captive juveniles and from wild adult fish in late spring off the Rhode Island coast during their coastal migration and in the Hudson River during the spawning migration [28].
  • HBsAg-negative donor sera from the Rhode Island Blood Center between 1987 and 1988 were screened using more sensitive techniques to assess the prevalence of low level HBV infection [29].
  • SIMAP was used for the North Cape oil spill in Rhode Island (USA) in January 1996, for injury quantification in the first and largest NRDA case to be performed under the 1996 Oil Pollution Act NRDA regulations [30].
  • M. pennsylvanicus, on Patience Island (where P. leucopus was absent) in Narragansett Bay, Rhode Island from June to October 1992 [31].
  • Younger White Leghorn (WL) hens produced ESM with 28% higher lysozyme activity than Rhode Island Red (RIR) layers [32].
