Disease relevance of North Carolina


Psychiatry related information on North Carolina

  • A questionnaire sent to all women psychiatrists and trainees in North Carolina as part of the development of a district branch Task Force on Women indicated that institutional sexism affects the careers of many of the respondents [6].
  • Psychosocial factors and preterm birth among African American and White women in central North Carolina [7].
  • METHODS: A modified version of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's Youth Risk Behavior Survey was administered to 2227 sixth- through eighth-grade students attending 53 randomly selected middle schools in North Carolina in 1995 [8].
  • Two separate groups of reviewers were involved in the Consensus Development Conference on Diagnosis and Management of Dental Caries Throughout Life. The training of the independent reviewers and the methodology they used differed from that of the team at the Research Triangle Institute and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (RTI/UNC) [9].

High impact information on North Carolina

  • From 1994 to 1997, North Carolina averaged 2 cases annually; however, from July 1998 to February 1999, a total of 22 cases of histamine fish poisoning were reported [10].
  • After the announcement of the results of the AIDS Clinical Trials Group Protocol 076, zidovudine was given to 75% of HIV-positive women who delivered infants in North Carolina. Only 5.7% of infants who received any zidovudine became infected, compared with 18.9% of infants who received no zidovudine (P=.007) [11].
  • Tretinoin for photoaging skin: North Carolina vs New York [12].
  • PATIENTS: Patients were 554 North Carolina residents (age range, 30 to 79 years) hospitalized between 1980 and 1982 with a discharge diagnosis indicating newly diagnosed chronic renal dysfunction and a serum creatinine level consistently at or above 130 mumol/L (1.5 mg/dL) [13].
  • We ascertained 20 American Caucasian NF1 families (163 individuals, 98 NF1 affected) in Michigan and Ohio and also studied a large family ascertained primarily in North Carolina. The following markers were used in this study: HHH202, TH17.19, D17Z1, ERBA1, EW203, EW206, EW207, EW301, CRI-L581, and CRI-L946 [14].

Associations of North Carolina with chemical compounds

  • There were significant interactions between both treatments in total cholesterol (p = 0.0001), LDL cholesterol (p = 0.0001), MLD (p = 0.008) and PA (p = 0.017) using two-way repeated-measures analysis of variance by the SAS system (SAS Institute Inc., Cary, North Carolina) [30].
  • OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to discern a target range of anticoagulation for enoxaparin during percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) as measured by the Rapidpoint ENOX (Pharmanetics Inc., Morrisville, North Carolina), a new point-of-care test [31].
  • METHODS: Retrospective review of the medical records of 660 patients with AF managed by general internists and family practitioners in Rochester, NY, and the Research Triangle area of North Carolina. RESULTS: Only 34.7% of eligible patients with AF received warfarin [32].
  • Potential physiologic effects of in-vehicle, roadside, and ambient PM(2.5) were investigated in young, healthy, nonsmoking, male North Carolina Highway Patrol troopers [33].
  • The prevalence of positive epicutaneous allergen skin tests among the Waorani was 40 in 2910 tests and was significantly less (chi-squared = 184.5; p less than or equal to 0.0001) than the 151 in 1344 incidence in the North Carolina subjects [34].

Gene context of North Carolina

  • University of North Carolina (UNC) eNOS(-/-) (n = 10) exhibited a 52% reduction in myocardial injury versus wild-type controls (P < 0.05) [35].
  • A common DLX3 gene mutation is responsible for tricho-dento-osseous syndrome in Virginia and North Carolina families [36].
  • One of these new electrophoretic variants, labeled as ACP1FA, has been detected in the Hispanic population of California. The electrophoretic variants identified as ACP1GA and ACP1GB have been detected in a black family in North Carolina. A family study has shown that ACP1G is transmitted as an allele of ACP1 [37].
  • METHODS: A biracial community sample of 2,550 older African Americans and Whites in North Carolina was genotyped for APOE, tested for cholesterol, and evaluated for depression at both baseline and 4-year follow-up [38].
  • AIMS: To document the phenotype of an autosomal dominant macular dystrophy diagnosed as having North Carolina macular dystrophy (NCMD) in this British family, and to verify that the disease locus corresponds with that of MCDR1 on chromosome 6q [39].
