Identifying The Risk Factors To Postpartum Depression, Jannica Bondoc Santos 2019 Dominican University of California

Identifying The Risk Factors To Postpartum Depression, Jannica Bondoc Santos

Senior Theses and Capstone Projects

A woman’s life instantly changes after the birth of their child. Furthermore, culture influences the stigma that a mother is the primary caregiver of their children and are accountable for the health and upbringing of the child. Giving birth to a baby and taking up the responsibility of another human life is a great impact in a female’s existence. In addition to the new tasks that come with motherhood, women are also challenged to cope with their emotional and mental state after giving birth. The most chronic mental illness that can develop after labor is postpartum depression (PPD ...

The Roles of an Evidence-Based Weight Management Protocol in Hypertension Control

Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this project is to evaluate the impact of a healthcare provider-led protocol for patients with hypertension (HTN) and weight loss needs to improve weight control, cardiovascular risk and quality of life.

Background: Evidence shows that a 1.2-kg weight loss can reduce systolic blood pressure (SBP) by 3.8mmHg. Thus, a 10kg (22lbs) weight loss is likely to yield a SBP decrease of as much as 32mmHg. Such results would positively impact quality of life and costs. The simple approach of instructing patients to ...

Shingles Vaccine: Identifying High Risk Groups In The Ibd Clinic Setting, Crystal Barajas

Title: Shingles Vaccine: Identifying high risk groups in the IBD clinic setting

Background: The Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) population is an immunocompromised patient population who is at risk for Herpes Zoster (HZ) due to their medication regimen, which further compromises their immune system. It can be difficult for patients to receive appropriate preventative health maintenance measures due to patients’ fears, primary care providers’ lack of knowledge, and gastroenterologists not addressing what may be considered primary care topics. Furthermore, evidence demonstrates that IBD patients have low vaccination rates despite insurance coverage.

Purpose of Project: (a) To increase awareness of the importance ...


The Effects Of Autophagy On The Replication Of Zika Virus, Mohammed Marghani 2019 Touro College and University System

The Effects Of Autophagy On The Replication Of Zika Virus, Mohammed Marghani

NYMC Student Theses and Dissertations

Zika virus is an enveloped virus with a single-stranded positive-sense RNA genome. The Zika virus is a member of the Flaviviridae family of viruses that was discovered to infect humans in 1952. The Flavivirus envelope is decorated by many copies of two membrane proteins that facilitate viral entry. The virus is primarily transmitted through mosquito bites. Another method by which Zika virus could be transmitted is through sexual contact with Zika infected partners or from an infected pregnant woman to fetus known as congenital transmission. Infected patients suffer from self-limiting febrile illness including headaches, skin rash myalgia, and conjunctivitis. Zika ...

Newcastle disease virus (NDV) is a threat to the global poultry industry, but particularly for smallholder farmers in low- and middle-income countries. Previous reports suggest that some breeds of chickens are less susceptible to NDV infection, however, the mechanisms contributing to this are unknown. We here examined the comparative transcriptional responses of innate immune genes to NDV infection in inbred sublines of the Fayoumi and Leghorn breeds known to differ in their relative susceptibility to infection as well as at the microchromosome bearing the major histocompatability complex (MHC) locus. The analysis identified a set of five core genes, Mx1, IRF1 ...


Detection Of Bleeding Events In Electronic Health Record Notes Using Convolutional Neural Network Models Enhanced With Recurrent Neural Network Autoencoders: Deep Learning Approach, Rumeng Li, Baotian Hu, Feifan Liu, Weisong Liu, Francesca Cunningham, David D.

Detection Of Bleeding Events In Electronic Health Record Notes Using Convolutional Neural Network Models Enhanced With Recurrent Neural Network Autoencoders: Deep Learning Approach, Rumeng Li, Baotian Hu, Feifan Liu, Weisong Liu, Francesca Cunningham, David D. Mcmanus, Hong Yu

David D. McManus

BACKGROUND: Bleeding events are common and critical and may cause significant morbidity and mortality. High incidences of bleeding events are associated with cardiovascular disease in patients on anticoagulant therapy. Prompt and accurate detection of bleeding events is essential to prevent serious consequences. As bleeding events are often described in clinical notes, automatic detection of bleeding events from electronic health record (EHR) notes may improve drug-safety surveillance and pharmacovigilance.

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to develop a natural language processing (NLP) system to automatically classify whether an EHR note sentence contains a bleeding event.

METHODS: We expert annotated 878 EHR notes (76,577 ...

Tear Fluid Pharmacokinetics Following Oral Prednisone Administration In Dogs With And Without Conjunctivitis, Lionel Sebbag, Yuqi Yan, Joe S. Smith, Rachel A. Allbaugh, Larry W. Wulf, Jonathan P. Mochel 2019 Iowa State University

Tear Fluid Pharmacokinetics Following Oral Prednisone Administration In Dogs With And Without Conjunctivitis, Lionel Sebbag, Yuqi Yan, Joe S. Smith, Rachel A. Allbaugh, Larry W. Wulf, Jonathan P. Mochel

Jonathan Mochel

Purpose: To describe the pharmacokinetics (PK) of prednisone and prednisolone in tear fluid of dogs receiving oral prednisone at anti-inflammatory to immunosuppressive doses and to assess the impact of induced conjunctivitis on lacrimal drug levels.

Methods: Six healthy Beagle dogs were administered 4 courses of prednisone at 0.5, 1.0, 2.0, and 4.0 mg/kg given orally once a day for 5 days. At steady state, topical histamine was applied to induce mild (1 mg/mL) or severe (375 mg/mL) conjunctivitis in 1 eye of each dog and tear samples were collected from both eyes at ...
