Disease relevance of Loma


High impact information on Loma

  • G6PD Loma Linda had a C----A substitution at nt 1089 in exon 10, producing a Asn----Lys change at amino acid 363 [2].
  • Specimens were reviewed at the National Wilms Tumor Study Pathology Center (Loma Linda, Calif) [3].
  • Proton irradiations were carried out at the Loma Linda University Proton Treatment Facility, CA, USA [4].
  • Ambient aerosol sampling was conducted in Diamond Bar, Mira Loma, and Riverside, CA, to observe at close range the effects of ammonia emissions on air quality [5].
  • SETTING: This study was performed in the neonatal intensive care unit at Loma Linda University Children's Hospital, Loma Linda, Calif. SUBJECTS: Infants with a gestational age of 32 weeks or younger, older than 7 days, and receiving r-HuEPO therapy from March 1, 1997, to June 30, 1998, were eligible for the study [6].

Biological context of Loma


Anatomical context of Loma


Associations of Loma with chemical compounds

  • An ethics consultation service was established in the Department of Family Medicine at Loma Linda University School of Medicine in 1990 [10].
  • A beam intensity monitor was tested in a 230-MeV proton beam at the Loma Linda Proton Therapy Accelerator during its commissioning at Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory. The intensity monitor was designed to regulate the beam intensity extracted from the proton synchrotron [11].
  • A preliminary investigation of alternatives to fumagillin for the treatment of Loma salmonae infection in rainbow trout [12].
  • Quinine hydrochloride treatment delays xenoma formation and dissolution in rainbow trout challenged with Loma salmonae [13].
  • The devastating effects of earthquakes have been demonstrated repeatedly in the past decade, through moderate and major earthquakes such as the October 1987 Whittier Narrows earthquake (5.9 on the Richter scale), the October 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake (7.1) and the January 1994 Northridge earthquake (6.7) [14].

Gene context of Loma

  • At Naval Base Point Loma in San Diego, California, a canyon had been filled with construction debris and automotive scrap residue (ASR), the latter of which included lead acid batteries [15].
  • The CD-ROM experience at Loma Linda: the issues of training, logistics, and creative financing [16].
  • A ten-year study of all patients undergoing surgical treatment for hyperparathyroidism at Loma Linda University is presented [17].
