Disease relevance of South Carolina

  • Using CD4 counts to evaluate the stages and epidemiology of HIV infection in South Carolina public clinic patients [1].
  • METHODS: We recruited AA men attending prostate cancer screenings in and around Columbia, South Carolina. Because very few men had elevated PSAs, we restricted our study to the 77 men whose PSA was below the cutpoint used by the screening program to indicate need for diagnostic workup [2].
  • To examine these relationships, we used linked infant birth and death records for the cohort of 1,204,375 White and 283,776 Black postneonates who were born from 1979 to 1981 in five states: California, Georgia, Missouri, South Carolina and Tennessee. Deaths attributable to SIDS occurred to 1404 White postneonates and to 696 Black postneonates [3].
  • These findings support the conclusion from the South Carolina study that the risk of lung cancer in textile processing is very much greater than in chrysotile production and probably than in the friction products industry [4].
  • A narrow band of counties extending along the southeastern Atlantic coast from Jacksonville, Florida to Charleston, South Carolina were found to have excessively high incidence rates for esophageal cancer in non-white males [5].

Psychiatry related information on South Carolina

  • The reliability of long-term recall of physical activity participation was examined in 322 women and 129 men in a worksite health study conducted at the Liberty Corporation, Greenville, South Carolina during 1976-1987 [6].
  • Ninety nine patients from the South Carolina autism project (SCAP) were screened for MeCP2 mutations, including all 41 female patients from whom DNA samples were available plus the 58 male patients with the lowest scores on standard IQ tests and/or the Vineland Adaptive Behavior Scale [7].

Chemical compound and disease context of South Carolina


Biological context of South Carolina

  • Data from a 5-y, population-based, case-control study of 170 NTD-affected pregnancies and 269 controls were provided by the South Carolina NTD Surveillance, Prevention, and Research Project. There was a 30-55% lower NTD risk among women whose average daily dietary intake of methionine was greater than the lowest quartile of intake (>1580 mg/d) [16].
  • We compared both aerobic (prolonged and endurance) and anaerobic (burst) swimming capacities between intrinsically fast-growing fish from the north (Nova Scotia, NS) and intrinsically slow-growing fish from the south (South Carolina, SC) and between growth-manipulated phenotypes within each population [17].
  • The University of South Carolina School of Medicine in Columbia implemented the Dean's Faculty Scholars in Aging (DFSA) Program in 2001 to strengthen the knowledge of geriatrics of nongeriatrician faculty members [18].
  • SETTING: Department of Ophthalmology, Yonsei University College of Medicine, Seoul, Korea, and Storm Eye Institute, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, South Carolina, USA [19].
  • METHODS: Patients with recently diagnosed SLE (n = 265) were recruited through 4 university based and 30 community based rheumatology practices in North Carolina and South Carolina, USA [20].

Anatomical context of South Carolina

  • CONCLUSIONS: p53 overexpression and mutations are frequently found in SCCE from patients in coastal South Carolina. Overexpression in normal epithelium from random autopsy cases may indicate an inherited or acquired predisposition in this geographic region [21].

Associations of South Carolina with chemical compounds

  • Heroin was the most commonly injected drug in Detroit (94%) and Connecticut (48%); cocaine was the most common in South Carolina (64%), Atlanta (56%), Delaware (55%), Denver (46%), and Arizona (44%); speedball was most common in Florida (46%); and amphetamines were most common in Washington (56%) [22].
  • This paper describes and evaluates the personal counseling program in the Department of Family Medicine, Medical University of South Carolina, from 1973 through 1978 [23].
  • Participants were 1,606 adults identified by review of a South Carolina statewide hospital discharge data set, on the basis of satisfying the Centers for Disease Control case definition of TBI, and were interviewed by telephone 1 year after TBI-related discharge [24].
  • Changes in blood cholesterol awareness: final results from the South Carolina Cardiovascular Disease Prevention Project [25].
  • Successful treatment of neurotoxic king cobra envenomation in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina [26].

Gene context of South Carolina

  • STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: SLC6A4 (5-HTTLPR) genotypes were determined in individuals with self-identified African ancestry from South Carolina (n = 489), western Pennsylvania (n = 207), and Tobago (n = 169) [27].
  • Participants were 320 African American men from the African American Hereditary Prostate Cancer Study and the South Carolina Prostate Cancer Education and Screening Study participated [28].
  • The birthweight distributions of Black and White infants in South Carolina were compared for the paired-year periods 1975-76 and 1985-86 [29].
  • We conducted laboratory selection experiments to compare vulnerability to predation of silversides from: (1) fast-growing northern (Nova Scotia, NS) versus slow-growing southern (South Carolina, SC) source populations; (2) phenotypically manipulated fast-growing versus moderately-growing NS fish; and (3) recently fed versus unfed NS and SC fish [30].
  • From 1972 to 1977, 5,034 cases of calculous disease were seen in 5 major hospitals in South Carolina and only 9 patients had hyperparathyroidism as the underlying etiology [31].
