Disease relevance of Hispanic Americans


Psychiatry related information on Hispanic Americans


High impact information on Hispanic Americans

  • We have identified the HPS gene by positional cloning, and found homozygous frameshifts in this gene in Puerto Rican, Swiss, Irish and Japanese HPS patients [11].
  • CONCLUSION: Progestin-only OCs were associated with an increased risk of diabetes in breast-feeding Latinas with recent GDM and probably should be prescribed with caution, if at all, in these women [12].
  • CONCLUSIONS--The high rates of death by homicide among young African Americans and Latinos may be due to the increased involvement with both cocaine use and firearms [13].
  • The largest percentage of tubal ligations were found among Puerto Rican women [14].
  • METHODS: Healthy volunteer smokers, including 37 Chinese-Americans, 40 Latinos, and 54 whites, received simultaneous infusions of deuterium-labeled nicotine and cotinine, a metabolite of nicotine [2].
