Different prevalences of Renibacterium salmoninarum detected by ELISA in Alaskan chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha spawned from freshwater and seawater. (1/747)

Soluble antigen of Renibacterium salmoninarum (Rs) was detected by a polyclonal enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) at significantly higher prevalences in adult chinook salmon Oncorhynchus tshawytscha that matured in freshwater than in the same cohort of fish spawned after maturation in seawater. The cumulative results were consistent during 4 yr of comparison at the Little Port Walter Hatchery on Baranof Island, Alaska, USA. Possible causes for this difference are discussed. Maturation of chinook salmon broodstock in seawater has become a practical strategy at this hatchery to reduce the prevalence of Rs-positive parent fish and the numbers of culled eggs.  (+info)

Mercury in Alaskan Eskimo mothers and infants. (2/747)

The potential danger of natural mercury accumulation in the diet of the Eskimo is evaluated through mercury levels determined in cord blood, placenta, maternal blood, hair, and milk of 38 maternal-infant pairs from Anchorage and the Yukon-Kuskokwim Delta. Although mercury levels are not discernably dangerous, trends to larger accumulations in maternal and fetal RBC and placental tissue with proximity to the sea and consumption of seals during pregnancy provide the basis for considering possible indicators of neonatal involvement. Mercury level in RBC from cord blood appeared as the best potential indicator of this involvement, although relationships with the mother's diet and level of mercury in the placenta also appear useful. In this area, average and maximal mercury levels in cord blood are 39 and 78 ng/ml, respectively, far below the acknowledged toxic level in infants of these mothers who eat seals or fish every day during their pregnancy.  (+info)

Clinical services assessment and reengineering: lessons learned. (3/747)

Healthcare enterprises often "acquire and install" picture archiving and communications systems (PACS) without examining many of the care delivery processes and information flows that will be affected. Many times these unexamined factors can delay or be the cause of failure of the PACS project. This article presents issues that were worked through as part of a PACS clinical services assessment and reengineering analysis for several US military medical treatment facilities.  (+info)

Seroepidemiology of California and Bunyamwera serogroup (Bunyaviridae) virus infections in native populations of Alaska. (4/747)

This study investigated the geographic distribution and prevalence of antibodies to California and Bunyamwera serogroup viruses in Native populations of Alaska, and demographic and ecologic risk factors associated with exposure. Sera (n = 1,635) from 18 communities were screened using an ELISA. All age groups were tested for antibodies to Jamestown Canyon (JC), Inkoo (INK), snowshoe hare (SSH), and Northway (NOR) viruses; persons > or = 45 years old (n = 90) from six communities were additionally tested for antibodies to Tahyna (TAH), Batai (BAT), Cache Valley (CV), and Sindbis (SIN) viruses. Thirty free-ranging mammals were tested by a plaque reduction neutralization test (PRNT) for antibodies to all eight viruses and to Getah (GET) virus. In Natives, overall antibody prevalence was 24.9% (JC = 17.6%, monotypic JC = 6.5%, INK = 11.1%, monotypic INK = 0.6%, SSH = 6.8%, monotypic SSH = 3.5%, and NOR = 6.2%). Five TAH, CV, and BAT virus exposures may be serologic cross-reactions, and no SIN virus antibodies were detected. Sindbis-like virus antibodies were found in 30% of the mammals. Most mammals had antibodies to NOR (83.3%) and California serogroup (70.0%) viruses; no GET virus exposures were found. Significant risk factors for human bunyavirus exposures were age group, ethnic-linguistic group, biotic province, climate zone, terrestrial vegetation, and presence of some ungulates and small mammals in communities. Sex was not a significant risk factor.  (+info)

Severe respiratory syncytial virus disease in Alaska native children. RSV Alaska Study Group. (5/747)

Hospitalization rates for respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infection range from 1 to 20/1000 infants. To determine the rate and severity of RSV infections requiring hospitalization for infants in the Yukon-Kuskokwim (YK) Delta of Alaska, a 3-year prospective surveillance study was conducted. The annual rate of RSV hospitalization for YK Delta infants <1 year of age was 53-249/1000. RSV infection was the most frequent cause of infant hospitalization. RSV disease severity did not differ among non-high-risk infants in the YK Delta and at Johns Hopkins Hospital (JHH). On average, 1/125 infants born in the YK Delta required mechanical ventilation for RSV infection. During the peak season, approximately $1034/child <3 years of age was spent on RSV hospitalization in the YK Delta. In YK Delta infants +info)

Outbreak of influenza A infection among travelers--Alaska and the Yukon Territory, May-June 1999. (6/747)

This report presents information about the outbreak. Laboratory evidence, including rapid influenza A antigen-detection tests and viral cultures from respiratory specimens, has implicated influenza A virus as the cause of illness.  (+info)

Epizootiology of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus in Pacific herring from the spawn-on-kelp fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska, USA. (7/747)

Both the prevalence and tissue titer of viral hemorrhagic septicemia virus (VHSV) increased in Pacific herring Clupea pallasi following their introduction into net pens (pounds) used in the closed pound spawn-on-kelp (SOK) fishery in Prince William Sound, Alaska. VHSV was also found in water samples from inside and outside the SOK pounds after herring had been confined for several days; however, water samples taken near wild free-ranging, spawning herring either failed to test positive or tested weakly positive for virus. Little or no virus was found in tissue samples from free-ranging, spawning herring captured from the vicinity of the pounds, nor did the prevalence of VHSV increase following spawning as it did in impounded herring. The data indicated that increased prevalences of VHSV were correlated with confinement of herring for the closed pound SOK fishery and that infection was spread within the pounds through waterborne exposure to virus particles originating from impounded fish. In addition, pounds containing predominantly young fish had higher prevalences of VHSV, suggesting that older fish may be partially immune, perhaps as a result of previous infection with the virus. Operation of SOK pounds during spawning seasons in which young herring predominate may amplify the disease and possibly exacerbate the population fluctuations observed in wild herring stocks.  (+info)

Asthma prevalence among American Indian and Alaska Native children. (8/747)

OBJECTIVES: Although asthma is the most common chronic childhood illness in the United States, little is known about its prevalence among American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) children. The authors used the latest available household survey data to estimate the prevalence of asthma in this population. METHODS: The authors analyzed data for children ages 1 through 17 years from the 1987 Survey of American Indians and Alaska Natives (SAIAN) and the 1987 National Medical Expenditure Survey (NMES). At least one member of each AI/AN household included in the SAIAN was eligible for services through the Indian Health Service. RESULTS: The weighted prevalence of parent-reported asthma was 7.06% among 2288 AI/AN children ages 1-17 (95% CI 5.08, 9.04), compared with a US estimate of 8.40% for children ages 1-17 based on the 1987 NMES (95% CI 7.65, 9.15). The AI/AN sample was too small to yield stable estimates for a comparison between AI/AN children and all US children when the data were stratified according to household income and metropolitan vs non-metropolitan residence. The unadjusted asthma prevalence rates were similar for AI/AN children and for children in the NMES sample. CONCLUSIONS: In 1987, the prevalence of parent-reported asthma was similar for AI/AN children in the SAIAN sample and for children in the NMES sample. More recent data are needed to better understand the current prevalence of asthma among AI/AN children.  (+info)

To determine whether methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) USA300 commonly caused infections among Alaska Natives, we examined clinical MRSA isolates from the Alaska Native Medical Center, Anchorage, during 2000-2006. Among Anchorage-region residents, USA300 was a minor constituent among MRSA isolates in 2000-2003 (11/68, 16%); by 2006, USA300 was the exclusive genotype identified (10/10).
The North Pacific Coast (NPC) of North America is a region of high mammalian endemism, possibly due to its highly fragmented landscape and complex glacial history. For example, four island and one mainland subspecies of ermine, Mustela erminea, have been described as endemic to southeast Alaska alone. To better understand the role of past climatic change in generating diversity in the region, we examined DNA sequence variation in the mitochondrial cytochrome b gene of 210 ermine from across North America, with an emphasis on Alaska and British Columbia. We found three distinct (1.5-3.6% uncorrected p) lineages of ermine, all of which occur in southeast Alaska. One lineage includes a southeast Alaska endemic and specimens from Alaska (outside of southeast) and Eurasia. A second lineage includes two southeast Alaskan endemics and ermine from western Canada and the coterminous United States. The close relationships of these purported endemics to ermine outside of southeast Alaska suggest that ...
Background Representing 2?% of the general human population, American Indians/Alaska Natives (AIs/ANs) had been connected with 0. specific complement of accidental injuries. Some seven logistic regression versions BEZ235 had been used to forecast DRF between racial organizations.

The first HPV vaccines licensed targeted two HPV types responsible for most cervical cancers. A 9-valent vaccine (9vHPV), targeting 5 additional types, was introduced in 2016 and is currently the only HPV vaccine available in the United States. Previous studies demonstrated high rates of HPV infection in Alaska Native (AN) women. We sought to measure prevalence of high risk HPV types in AN women undergoing colposcopy and to determine those preventable by vaccination. For this cross-sectional study, we recruited women who were undergoing colposcopy for clinical indications at Alaska Native Medical Center to obtain cervical brush biopsy samples. Specimens were shipped to Atlanta, Georgia for DNA extraction, HPV detection, and typing using L1 PCR with type-specific hybridization to detect 37 HPV types. Four hundred eighty eight specimens from 489 women were tested. At least one HPV type was found in 458 (94%) specimens. Of 458 participants who were HPV positive, 332 (72%) had two or more types.

Community-acquired methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (CA-MRSA) infections are common in southwestern Alaska. Outbreak strains have been shown to carry the genes for Panton-Valentine leukocidin (PVL). To determine if carriage of PVL-positive CA-MRSA increased the risk for subsequent soft tissue infection, we conducted a retrospective cohort study by reviewing the medical records of 316 persons for 3.6 years after their participation in a MRSA nasal colonization survey. Demographic, nasal carriage, and antimicrobial drug use data were analyzed for association with skin infection risk. Skin infections were more likely to develop in MRSA carriers than in methicillin-susceptible S. aureus carriers or noncarriers of S. aureus during the first follow-up year, but not in subsequent years. Repeated skin infections were more common among MRSA carriers. In an area where PVL-containing MRSA is prevalent, skin infection risk was increased among MRSA nasal carriers compared with methicillin-susceptible S.

The State of Alaska Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic was assumed by Southcentral Foundation in October 2016. While the staffing of the clinic stays continuous, there have been improvements which include an increased number of clinics, additional hours for clinics, and more comprehensive evaluations that allow providers to get to know each child individually.. A new website was developed and contains information not only on the condition, but also specific pages geared toward parents and providers, along with a team bio page. In the future, the dental department hopes to provide additional resources for out-of-town guests to help make travel easier.. The clinic is open to all Alaska residents, and the team is composed of members from SCF, ANTHC, and the community. One of the leading members is Dr. Daniel Suver, a craniofacial plastic surgeon who comes with a remarkable educational and practical background. An Alaska resident since 2012, Dr. Suver has a particular interest in pediatric plastic surgery, ...

Basic income is a regular unconditional cash grant paid to all citizens without any means test or work requirement. Its often dismissed as a utopian idea.. However, a basic income, or something very close to it, exists today in Alaska. Its called the Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD) or sometimes the Alaska Dividend.. The PFD has been paying annual dividends to Alaskans since 1982 with no conditions except citizenship, residency, and the willingness to fill out a form. After following the Alaska Dividend since 1999, and I want to share six lessons that supporters of progressive economic policy should learn from what I call the Alaska model, but first some basic background.. In 1956, Alaska ratified a constitution recognizing joint ownership of unoccupied land and natural resources. In 1967, North Americas largest oil reserve was discovered in state owned areas on Alaskas North Slope. In 1976, a state referendum created the Alaska Permanent Fund (APF), a portfolio of diversified assets, into ...
Sportsmen are united in their support for the EPA to use its power under the Clean Water Acts section 404(c) to protect Bristol Bay from the proposed Pebble Mine, which, if permitted, would become North Americas largest open-pit mine and produce up to 10 billion tons of toxic mine waste that must be treated and stored in perpetuity.. Bristol Bay is exactly the kind of place that Theodore Roosevelt was talking about when he said its our responsibility to conserve great habitat and wildlife, said Whit Fosburgh, President and CEO of the Theodore Roosevelt Conservation Partnership. Protecting Bristol Bay is a bipartisan issue, with deep and broad support.. A recent poll of sportsmen in 13 battleground election states found that two-thirds of hunters and anglers support EPA action that places restrictions on the permits necessary to build the proposed Pebble Mine, which would be 20 times larger than all of the mines in Alaska combined. The sportsmen polled leaned conservative or Republican ...

Anchorage: ACE Air Cargo flew an injured seal pup 800 miles from Dutch Harbor to Anchorage for treatment at the Alaska SeaLife Center in Seward.. Dutch Harbor residents found the four- to five-week old pup on a beach early May 19 and watched her all day to keep local dogs and predators away.. Reid Brewer, a Dutch Harbor-based University of Alaska Fairbanks Marine Animal Program biologist, examined the pup and feared she wouldn t survive the night.. He called ACE, and ACE team member Lia Porras helped him load the pup into a portable dog kennel for shipment to Anchorage.. An Alaska SeaLife Center technician met ACE Flight 65 in Anchorage to pick up the pup, assess her condition and start hydrating her immediately. The examination showed that the pup s body temperature was normal, which was crucial for recovery.. I credit ACE s staff completely for her temperature because they kept the plane warm enough for the entire flight, said Tim Lebling, Alaska SeaLife Center stranding ...
Bristol Bay in southwest Alaska supports the worlds greatest wild salmon fishery. And now scientists have a new understanding why: water temperature and stream flow. Variation in the temperature and flow of streams is key to supporting not just Bristol Bays prolific salmon populations, but also the areas immense wildlife diversity from bears to birds to plants, according to new research presented this week at the Ecological Society of America meetings in Portland, Oregon. Working in the Wood River watershed of Southwest Alaska, scientists found that the diversity of stream conditions results in salmon that spawn at different times throughout the season, thereby extending the time that predators and scavengers can feast on this important food supply. As the lead author of the research explains, Animals like coastal brown bears and Glaucus-winged gulls gorge themselves at one stream for a few weeks and then just move to another stream that might have water temperatures a few degrees warmer and ...
What the court has cut short is flagrant attempts by the Forest Service to trample not only the remaining old-growth forest on Southeast Alaskas most heavily-logged major island, but also NEPA, which is Americas bedrock law for protecting the environment from contrived decision-making, said Larry Edwards of the regional organization Alaska Rainforest Defenders. The Prince of Wales project wouldve been the largest logging project that we have seen anywhere in our national forests in decades, and it would have destroyed thousands of acres of irreplaceable old-growth forest in the Tongass National Forest, said Kristen Miller, conservation director at Alaska Wilderness League. Todays ruling is a win for Southeast Alaskas billion-dollar fishing and tourism industries, and a reminder as the Trump administration tries to significantly weaken the National Environmental Policy Act of the critical role NEPA plays in allowing the public to meaningfully weigh in on issues impacting their public ...
Juneau - Monday, the Alaska House of Representatives passed legislation sponsored by Representative Matt Claman (D-Anchorage) that amends the Alaska Marriage Code to add language that allows for marriages to be solemnized by elected officials of the state of Alaska.. Under current Alaska statute, marriage may only be solemnized by a minister, priest, rabbi, or commissioned officer of the Salvation Army, a marriage commissioner or judicial officer, or any religious organization or congregation. With recent court closures, adding elected officials to this list provides Alaskans an easily accessible marriage option to perform the ceremony without having to go through the time-consuming process of arranging for a marriage commissioner appointment. This change particularly improves access to marriage solemnization in rural areas with fewer officials pre-approved by the state. For instance, if a couple in a remote Alaskan village are set to be married and the minister becomes ill, an elected official ...

The company has requested low-interest financing in the form of a $58 million loan from the Alaska Industrial and Export Authority (AIDEA). AIDEA is a state-owned public ...
The older metamorphic rocks of Alaska may be broadly simplified into three categories, separated spatially by faults. Many of the faults are recently active: (1) Metamorphosed continental margin rocks (mostly marine sedimentary rocks) adjacent to the ancestral North American plate and related rocks are found in Alaskas Interior, between the Tintina and Denali fault systems. (2) Metamorphosed marine and marginal sedimentary rocks, carbonate platform, oceanic igneous (ocean crust) rocks, and volcanic rocks comprise western and northern Alaska, north of the Tintina fault system. These rocks came together during uplift and deformation resulting from the opening of the Canadian Basin (which became the Arctic Ocean), beginning about 150 million years ago. (3) The variably metamorphosed arc-related volcanic, oceanic, sedimentary, and plutonic rocks of south-central and southeast Alaska have slipped up along the Denali and more southerly fault systems from the southeast over the last 120 million years. ...

Chinese Golden Early is a ver hardy tree, fruiting well in some of the coldest parts of Fairbanks. It also ripens early, making it a good choice for places with a short growing season.
