Psychiatry related information on Government Agencies


High impact information on Government Agencies

  • Substandard primaquine phosphate for US Peace Corps personnel [2].
  • By contrast, the authors found few U.S. government agency sites offering cautionary material about hallucinogen use [3].
  • Insurance payer status (n = 23,440) was divided into Medicaid, Medicare, government agency, HMO/PPO, and private [4].
  • In the US, government agencies and professional societies have recently recommended that thiomersal be removed altogether from vaccines [5].
  • Government agencies interested in establishing a framework for the testing and monitoring of nicotine delivery may wish to consider requiring the measurement and publication of the PM-phase alpha(fb) values for the cigars and cigarettes marketed in their jurisdictions [6].

Biological context of Government Agencies


Associations of Government Agencies with chemical compounds

  • As an initial step in compiling a database for risk analysis by government agencies, the effects of 1-h exposure of mice to a 1.6-GHz radiofrequency signal, given as either a continuous wave or pulse modulated at 11 Hz with a duty cycle of 4:1 and a pulse duration of 9.2 ms IRIDIUM), on c-fos gene expression in the brain was investigated [10].
  • These compounds, such as BHA, BHT, TBHQ, PG, etc. are approved to be used in foods by government agencies [11].
  • Evidence of probable resistance to mefloquine among strains of P. falciparum was found in five Peace Corps volunteers in sub-Saharan Africa. Clusters of well-documented prophylaxis failures need to be followed-up by therapeutic in vivo studies to document parasite resistance to mefloquine [12].
  • DC Circuit rules PSROs not government agencies under Freedom of Information Act [13].
  • Nutrition as a preventive strategy against adverse maternal pregnancy outcomes - a USAID/Wellcome Trust Workshop at Merton College, Oxford, UK, 18-19 July 2002 [14].

Gene context of Government Agencies

  • Under the Best Pharmaceuticals for Children Act of 2002, government agencies work with experts in pediatrics and pediatric research to develop and prioritize a list of off-patent drugs for which pediatric studies are urgently needed [15].
  • We used Medicare claims data to assess EPO use by renal dialysis providers one year after FDA approval (June 1990) as a function of provider ownership (for-profit, not-for-profit, government agency) and setting (hospital-based, free-standing) [16].
  • SETTING--Working men in Paris. PARTICIPANTS--6,988 men aged 44-55 years employed by a government agency [17].
  • Project IDEA (International Deaf Education Association) is an exemplary program started by the Peace Corps in Bohol, Philippines [18].
  • Situated near the Missouri-Illinois border, Cardinal Glennon serves patients from both states and deals with the legislatures and government agencies of each [19].
