Disease relevance of New Brunswick

  • Newfoundland and New Brunswick in the Atlantic region had the highest positivity, being higher than hyperendemic areas in Korea. The inland provinces of Ontario, Manitoba, and Alberta had only 0.5% positives to Hantaan virus [1].

Psychiatry related information on New Brunswick

  • This study analyzed, through case studies of day-to-day observations and interviews with recipients and operators, the operations of nine children's feeding programs in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, and Newfoundland. We found that children's feeding programs result in the stigmatization of participants and families, despite an ideology of equality [2].

High impact information on New Brunswick

  • DNA was obtained from 17 affected male patients from the "Hopewell" kindred and from four additional families from Nova Scotia and New Brunswick who shared the same Xq28 NDI haplotype [3].
  • The functional properties of the recombinant FV New Brunswick were evaluated in both plasma clotting and purified systems [4].
  • Comparisons were made to capillary blood glucose values determined using the One Touch Profile meter (Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, NJ) [5].
  • PURPOSE: Two widely used tensionless mid urethral slings currently available are the SPARC polypropylene sling (American Medical Systems, Minneapolis, Minnesota) and the TVT (tensionless vaginal tape, Ethicon, New Brunswick, New Jersey) [6].
  • A decline coinciding with the use of Matacil 1.8D was also apparent in blueback herring (Alosa aestivalis) catches in New Brunswick [7].

Anatomical context of New Brunswick

  • METHODS: Six eyes of three patients with conjunctivochalasis (average age +/-SD, 70.0 +/- 9.6 years; range, 56-78 years) were treated with a conjunctival fixation to sclera with three 6-0 Vicryl (Johnson & Johnson, New Brunswick, New Jersey) stitches [8].
  • Shellfish (oysters and/or clams) were obtained from 37 commercial harvesting sites in 13 Atlantic coast states from Maine to Florida and one site in New Brunswick, Canada. Gill washings from each of 25 shellfish at each site were examined by immunofluorescence microscopy (IFA) for oocysts of Cryptosporidium [9].
  • Severe damage to the hair coat near the end of this growing period was reported in 1985 on many ranches in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia. A histological analysis of serial sections of skin biopsies showed a marked increase in nuclear aberrations in the hair matrix of anagen guard hair follicles [10].

Associations of New Brunswick with chemical compounds

  • One isolate from the anaerobic jar was cultivated in a chemostat (Bioflo model C 30; New Brunswick Scientific Co.) in a defined medium with added B vitamins, yeast extract, or formic acid, with or without gas flow (air or nitrogen) [11].
  • A broth placed in a flask on a Gyrotory water bath shaker (150 rpm; New Brunswick Scientific Co., Inc., Edison, N.J.) fitted with a gassing hood connected to a gas mixture of 10% CO2, 5% O2, and 85% N2 supported good growth [12].
  • OBJECTIVE: To compare the efficacy of heparin-saturated oxidized regenerated cellulose absorbable adhesion barrier, Interceed (TC7; Johnson and Johnson Medical Inc., New Brunswick, NJ) to oxidized regenerated cellulose alone for the prevention of postoperative adhesions [13].
  • OBJECTIVE: To evaluate the effects of Ringer's lactate instillation, Interceed(TC7) (Johnson and Johnson Medical, Inc., New Brunswick NJ), and Gore-Tex Surgical Membrane (W. L. Gore and Associates, Inc., Flagstaff, AZ) in a rat uterine horn model [14].
  • OBJECTIVE: To determine the optimal approach to prevent adhesions comparing leuprolide acetate (GnRH-a), Interceed (oxidized regenerated cellulose; Johnson & Johnson Medical, Inc., New Brunswick, NJ), and a combination of leuprolide with Interceed in a rabbit uterine horn adhesion model [15].

Gene context of New Brunswick

  • Rather than working at sea, we tested the behavioral response to dimethyl sulfide (DMS) at night in breeding colonies on Kent Island, New Brunswick, Canada. Birds were presented with either 5 ml DMS (100 micro mol l(-1) concentration) or control (water) solutions from a platform 1.5 m in height positioned in a flyway 10 m from a breeding colony [16].
  • We describe a series of investigations that were conducted in support of the Task Force on Chemicals in the Environment and Human Reproductive Problems in New Brunswick [17].
  • In the present study, we evaluated the antioxidant and antiproliferative activities of two grades of dulse harvested from Canadian Maritime locations differing in UV radiation exposure (i.e. west versus east coasts of Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick) [18].
  • Air samples were taken using a New Brunswick STA 200 microbiological air sampler [19].
  • Brain acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity was measured in forest songbirds exposed to Ultra Ultra Low Volume (UULV) aerial spraying of fenitrothion in New Brunswick for spruce budworm control [20].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of New Brunswick

  • Application of the test to a random sample of farmed Atlantic salmon from the Bay of Fundy, New Brunswick, Canada, positively identified 5 of the 7 ISAV RT-PCR-positive fish, and all 10 RT-PCR-negative fish were also negative in the ELISA [21].
