Associations of anti-beta2-glycoprotein I autoantibodies with HLA class II alleles in three ethnic groups. (1/998)

OBJECTIVE: To determine any HLA associations with anti-beta2-glycoprotein I (anti-beta2GPI) antibodies in a large, retrospectively studied, multiethnic group of 262 patients with primary antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS), systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), or another connective tissue disease. METHODS: Anti-beta2GPI antibodies were detected in sera using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. HLA class II alleles (DRB1, DQA1, and DQB1) were determined by DNA oligotyping. RESULTS: The HLA-DQB1*0302 (DQ8) allele, typically carried on HLA-DR4 haplotypes, was associated with anti-beta2GPI when compared with both anti-beta2GPI-negative SLE patients and ethnically matched normal controls, especially in Mexican Americans and, to a lesser extent, in whites. Similarly, when ethnic groups were combined, HLA-DQB1*0302, as well as HLA-DQB1*03 alleles overall (DQB1*0301, *0302, and *0303), were strongly correlated with anti-beta2GPI antibodies. The HLA-DR6 (DR13) haplotype DRB1*1302; DQB1*0604/5 was also significantly increased, primarily in blacks. HLA-DR7 was not significantly increased in any of these 3 ethnic groups, and HLA-DR53 (DRB4*0101) was increased in Mexican Americans only. CONCLUSION: Certain HLA class II haplotypes genetically influence the expression of antibodies to beta2GPI, an important autoimmune response in the APS, but there are variations in HLA associations among different ethnic groups.  (+info)

A genome search identifies major quantitative trait loci on human chromosomes 3 and 4 that influence cholesterol concentrations in small LDL particles. (2/998)

Small, dense LDL particles are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease. To identify the genes that influence LDL size variation, we performed a genome-wide screen for cholesterol concentrations in 4 LDL size fractions. Samples from 470 members of randomly ascertained families were typed for 331 microsatellite markers spaced at approximately 15 cM intervals. Plasma LDLs were resolved by using nondenaturing gradient gel electrophoresis into 4 fraction sizes (LDL-1, 26.4 to 29.0 nm; LDL-2, 25.5 to 26.4 nm; LDL-3, 24.2 to 25.5 nm; and LDL-4, 21.0 to 24.2 nm) and cholesterol concentrations were estimated by staining with Sudan Black B. Linkage analyses used variance component methods that exploited all of the genotypic and phenotypic information in the large extended pedigrees. In multipoint linkage analyses with quantitative trait loci for the 4 fraction sizes, only LDL-3, a fraction containing small LDL particles, gave peak multipoint log10 odds in favor of linkage (LOD) scores that exceeded 3.0, a nominal criterion for evidence of significant linkage. The highest LOD scores for LDL-3 were found on chromosomes 3 (LOD=4.1), 4 (LOD=4.1), and 6 (LOD=2.9). In oligogenic analyses, the 2-locus LOD score (for chromosomes 3 and 4) increased significantly (P=0.0012) to 6.1, but including the third locus on chromosome 6 did not significantly improve the LOD score (P=0.064). Thus, we have localized 2 major quantitative trait loci that influence variation in cholesterol concentrations of small LDL particles. The 2 quantitative trait loci on chromosomes 3 and 4 are located in regions that contain the genes for apoD and the large subunit of the microsomal triglyceride transfer protein, respectively.  (+info)

Serum and red blood cell folate concentrations, race, and education: findings from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. (3/998)

BACKGROUND: Little is known about the relations between race or ethnicity, educational attainment, and serum and red blood cell folate concentrations. OBJECTIVE: We examined the relation between educational attainment and serum and red blood cell folate concentrations in 8457 white, African American, and Mexican American men and women aged > or = 17 y. DESIGN: We performed a cross-sectional analysis using data from Phase 1 of the third National health and Nutrition Examination Survey (1988-1991). RESULTS: White men had significantly higher adjusted serum and red blood cell folate concentrations (16.9 and 502.6 nmol/L, respectively) than did African American men (15.6 and 423.3 nmol/L, respectively) or Mexican American men (16.0 and 457.0 nmol/L, respectively); white women had significantly higher concentrations (18.4 and 515.9 nmol/L, respectively) than did African American women (16.3 and 415.4 nmol/L, respectively) or Mexican American women (15.9 and 455.7 nmol/L, respectively). For the entire sample, rank correlation coefficients between educational attainment and serum and red blood cell folate were 0.11 and 0.12, respectively, and were larger in white participants than in other participants. No significant linear trends between adjusted serum or red blood cell folate and educational attainment were found. Among participants with > 12 y of education, the mean adjusted concentrations of serum folate were 15% and 18% lower and those of red blood cell were 18% and 22% lower in African American men and women than in white men and women, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: African Americans and Mexican Americans could benefit most from public health programs to boost folate intakes by encouraging increased intake of folate-rich foods and vitamin supplements.  (+info)

Serum total homocysteine concentrations in adolescent and adult Americans: results from the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. (4/998)

BACKGROUND: The elevation of circulating total homocysteine concentrations in a fasting state is associated with an increased risk of occlusive vascular disease. OBJECTIVE: The primary goals of this study were to describe the distribution of serum total homocysteine concentrations in the United States and to test for differences in homocysteine concentrations among sex, age, and race-ethnicity categories. DESIGN: Using surplus sera from phase 2 of the third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, we measured serum total homocysteine concentrations for a nationally representative sample of 3766 males and 4819 females aged > or = 12 y. RESULTS: Age-adjusted geometric mean total homocysteine concentrations were 9.6 and 7.9 mmol/L in non-Hispanic white males and females, 9.8 and 8.2 mmol/L in non-Hispanic black males and females, and 9.4 and 7.4 mmol/L in Mexican American males and females, respectively. Age-adjusted geometric mean total homocysteine concentrations were significantly lower in females than in males in each race-ethnicity group (P < 0.01) and were significantly lower in Mexican American females than in non-Hispanic white and non-Hispanic black females (P < 0.01). There was a significant age-sex interaction (P < 0.01), reflecting the fact that homocysteine concentrations in females tended to diverge from those in males at younger ages and converge with those in males at older ages. CONCLUSIONS: The first data on homocysteine concentrations in a nationally representative sample of Americans confirm the age and sex differences reported previously in nonrepresentative samples. These data also indicate that differences between Mexican American and non-Hispanic females may influence circulating homocysteine concentrations.  (+info)

Mediators of ethnic-associated differences in infant birth weight. (5/998)

PURPOSE: To examine whether ethnic differences in low birth weight babies of low-income women may be explained in part by group differences in prenatal health behaviors and psychosocial factors. METHODS: A prospective, survey of 1,071 low-income, primiparous African-American and Mexican-origin women was conducted in Los Angeles County, California. In face-to-face interviews, data were obtained on substance use, prenatal stress, social support, attitudes toward pregnancy, initiation of prenatal care, and medical risk. Medical chart data were abstracted regarding medical risk factors and labor, delivery, and neonatal data. Interview data were linked with birth outcome data retrieved from maternal medical records. Structural equation modeling was used to test a hypothesized model in which differences in birth weight were expected to be mediated by ethnic differences in substance use, psychosocial factors, and medical risk. RESULTS: As expected, African-American women delivered babies of earlier gestational age and lower birth weight than did women of Mexican origin. Direct predictors of low birth weight were use of drugs and cigarettes, prenatal stress, and positive attitudes toward pregnancy; together, these factors accounted for the observed ethnic differences in birth weight. CONCLUSION: These data contribute to our understanding of the factors that may account for ethnic-associated differences in low birth weight.  (+info)

Racial and ethnic differences in glycemic control of adults with type 2 diabetes. (6/998)

OBJECTIVE: To evaluate glycemic control in a representative sample of U.S. adults with type 2 diabetes. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: The Third National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey included national samples of non-Hispanic whites, non-Hispanic blacks, and Mexican Americans aged > or = 20 years. Information on medical history and treatment of diabetes was obtained to determine those who had been diagnosed with type 2 diabetes by a physician before the survey (n = 1,480). Fasting plasma glucose and HbA1c were measured, and the frequencies of sociodemographic and clinical variables related to glycemic control were determined. RESULTS: A higher proportion of non-Hispanic blacks were treated with insulin and a higher proportion of Mexican Americans were treated with oral agents compared with non-Hispanic whites, but the majority of adults in each racial or ethnic group (71-83%) used pharmacologic treatment for diabetes. Use of multiple daily insulin injections was more common in whites. Blood glucose self-monitoring was less common in Mexican Americans, but most patients had never self-monitored. HbA1c values in the nondiabetic range were found in 26% of non-Hispanic whites, 17% of non-Hispanic blacks, and 20% of Mexican Americans. Poor glycemic control (HbA1c > 8%) was more common in non-Hispanic black women (50%) and Mexican-American men (45%) compared with the other groups (35-38%), but HbA1c for both sexes and for all racial and ethnic groups was substantially higher than normal levels. Those with HbA1c > 8% included 52% of insulin-treated patients and 42% of those taking oral agents. There was no relationship of glycemic control to socioeconomic status or access to medical care in any racial or ethnic group. CONCLUSIONS: These data indicate that many patients with type 2 diabetes in the U.S. have poor glycemic control, placing them at high risk of diabetic complications. Non-Hispanic black women, Mexican-American men, and patients treated with insulin and oral agents were disproportionately represented among those in poor glycemic control. Clinical, public health, and research efforts should focus on more effective methods to control blood glucose in patients with diabetes.  (+info)

The prevalence and health burden of self-reported diabetes in older Mexican Americans: findings from the Hispanic established populations for epidemiologic studies of the elderly. (7/998)

OBJECTIVES: The prevalence and health burden of self-reported adult-onset diabetes mellitus were examined in older Mexican Americans. METHODS: Data from the Hispanic Established Populations for Epidemiologic Studies of the Elderly were used to assess the prevalence of self-reported diabetes and its association with other chronic conditions, disability, sensory impairments, health behaviors, and health service use in 3050 community-dwelling Mexican Americans 65 years and older. RESULTS: The prevalence of self-reported diabetes in this sample was 22%, and there were high rates of obesity, diabetes-related complications, and diabetic medication use. Myocardial infarction, stroke, hypertension, angina, and cancer were significantly more common in diabetics than in nondiabetics, as were high levels of depressive symptoms, low perceived health status, disability, incontinence, vision impairment, and health service use. Many of the rate differences found in this sample of older Mexican Americans were higher than those reported among other groups of older adults. CONCLUSIONS: Our findings indicate that the prevalence and health burden of diabetes are greater in older Mexican Americans than in older non-Hispanic Whites and African Americans, particularly among elderly men.  (+info)

The dynamics of mass migration. (8/998)

We specify a set of equations defining a dynamic model of international migration and estimate its parameters by using data specially collected in Mexico. We then used it to project the a hypothetical Mexican community population forward in time. Beginning with a stable population of 10,000 people, we project ahead 50 years under three different assumptions: no international migration; constant probabilities of in- and out-migration, and dynamic schedules of out- and in-migration that change as migratory experience accumulates. This exercise represents an attempt to model the self-feeding character of international migration noted by prior observers and theorists. Our model quantifies the mechanisms of cumulative causation predicted by social capital theory and illustrates the shortcomings of standard projection methodologies. The failure to model dynamically changing migration schedules yields a 5% overstatement of the projected size of the Mexican population after 50 years, an 11% understatement of the total number of U.S. migrants, a 15% understatement of the prevalence of U.S. migratory experience in the Mexican population, and an 85% understatement of the size of the Mexican population living in the United States.  (+info)

The Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging (SALSA Study) project tracked the incidence of physical and cognitive impairment as well as dementia and cardiovascular diseases in elderly Latinos in the Sacramento, California, region. The SALSA project aimed to assess cognitive, physical, and social functions, which include the ability to follow instructions, to perform certain movements, and to interact with others. The study explored the effects that cultural, nutritional, social, and cardiovascular risk factors have on overall health and dementia, and examined the association between diabetes and functional status. This study contains the neuroclinical exam data from the SALSA project.

Mexican American women in the United States are more likely to live a sedentary lifestyle than women of other ethnic groups. As a result, obesity affects Mexican American women at a high rate. Obesity and a lack of physical activity are risk factors for many diseases, including heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancers. Increasing physical activity can lead to weight loss and lower the risk of developing these diseases. This study represents a partnership between the University of South Carolina, the South Carolina Hispanic Latino Health Coalition, and the University of Texas Health Sciences Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA) Regional Academic Health Center in the Lower Rio Grande Valley of Texas. Study researchers from these institutions will first conduct interviews and focus groups and then develop a program aimed at encouraging moderately intense physical activity among Mexican American women. Next, the study will evaluate the effectiveness of that program at increasing physical ...

The study is comprised of interviews from 227 Hispanic males aged 45 or older living in the area of Houston, Texas to address the gaps in knowledge on the social factors and health consequences of injection heroin use among aging Mexican American males. Specifically, the study investigated how the life course transitions of incarceration and drug treatment and drug abuse and family trajectories affect both the heroin career status and health consequences of these aging Mexican American men. The study used a cross-sectional, field-intensive outreach methodology augmented with respondent-driven sampling. Recruitment was focused in two Houston neighborhoods that are predominantly Mexican American areas with high rates of crime, poverty, and psychosocial challenges. Trained Outreach Specialists familiar with these communities identified community gatekeepers and gained their trust through continued presence in the community and ongoing dialogue about the study. These gatekeepers then helped identify ...
|i|SLC30A8|/i| encodes zinc transporter 8 which is involved in packaging and release of insulin. Evidence for the association of|i| SLC30A8|/i| variants with type 2 diabetes (T2D) is inconclusive. We interrogated single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) around|i| SLC30A8|/i| for association with T2D in high-risk, pedigreed individuals from extended Mexican American families. This study of 118 SNPs within 50 kb of the|i| SLC30A8|/i| locus tested the association with eight T2D-related traits at four levels: (i) each SNP using measured genotype approach (MGA); (ii) interaction of SNPs with age and sex; (iii) combinations of SNPs using Bayesian Quantitative Trait Nucleotide (BQTN) analyses; and (iv) entire gene locus using the gene burden test. Only one SNP (rs7817754) was significantly associated with incident T2D but a summary statistic based on all T2D-related traits identified 11 novel SNPs. Three SNPs and one SNP were weakly but interactively associated with age and sex, respectively. BQTN analyses could
TY - JOUR. T1 - Do Mexican Americans perceive environmental issues differently than Caucasians. T2 - A study of cross-ethnic variation in percepitons related to water in Tucson. AU - Williams, Bryan L. AU - Florez, Yvette. PY - 2002/5/6. Y1 - 2002/5/6. N2 - Little is known about the environmental perceptions of our nations Mexican and Mexican American population, especially in the area of water quality. We examined these perceptions to determine the extent to which Caucasians and Mexican Americans living in the Tucson, Arizona, metropolitan area differ in their perceptions of water quality-related risk, inequity, trust, and participation in civic activities. Ethnic variations in perceptions toward inequity, trust, and public participation were observed even when socioeconomic variation between Caucasians and Mexican Americans was controlled. However, significant ethnic variations in perceptions of water quality-related risks were observed only when socioeconomic variation was not controlled. ...
Kosko DA, Flaskerud JH.. This study compared the health beliefs of Mexican Americans concerning the specific symptom of chest pain to beliefs of a group of predominant culture nurse practitioners and a lay predominant culture control group. Two hypotheses were examined; The health beliefs of groups differ significantly with culture and the health beliefs of groups differ significantly with professional education. A 43-item structured questionnaire was developed, based on literature review and unstructured interviews with Mexican American respondents. the questionnaire was administered to three nonprobability samples of 30 subjects each: Mexican Americans, nurse practitioners, and lay controls. Significant differences were found between Mexican Americans and the predominant culture groups of nurse practitioners and lay controls on folk beliefs regarding chest pain. On some items significant differences between nurse practitioners and the lay groups of Mexican Americans and predominant culture ...
The paper details new research that suggests that potential disparities in fruit and vegetable intake in Mexican American children may be placing them at greater risk for obesity and related health problems.. Childhood obesity is a major public health issue that disproportionately affects Mexican Americans, so to address the problem, Duggirala designed the San Antonio Family Assessment of Metabolic Risk Indicators in Youth (SAFARI) study. The study assessed childhood obesity and its related cardio-metabolic traits in Mexican American children and adolescents from San Antonio and surrounding areas, and determined how those traits were influenced by genetics and environment.. The family-based study enabled Duggirala, principal investigator on the study, and his colleagues to determine the relative roles of genes, and environmental factors like diet and physical activity on obesity-related traits in Mexican American youth. The current article highlights the importance of fruit and vegetable intake ...
OBJECTIVES. Childhood overweight has increased significantly in the past 20 years, with the highest rates noted among Mexican Americans. Although this minority group is in significant need of intervention, few programs have demonstrated actual decreases in weight. In this study we evaluated an intensive healthy lifestyle program designed to result in weight reduction for overweight Mexican American children. We hypothesized that children randomly assigned to an intensive intervention would significantly reduce their standardized BMI when compared with children randomly assigned to a self-help condition.. PATIENTS AND METHODS. A total of 60 children (33 boys; 55%) between the ages of 10 and 14 years at or above the 85th percentile for BMI were randomly assigned to a 6-month intensive-intervention or self-help condition.. RESULTS. Children in the intensive-intervention condition significantly reduced their standardized BMI when compared with the children in the self-help condition. The change in ...

To understand the effect of diabetes on measures of lipoprotein phenotypes, we compared pairs of diabetic and nondiabetic individuals from the San Antonio Family Heart Study who were matched for age, sex, and menopausal status. Compared with nondiabetic populations, patients with diabetes have a twofold higher risk for cardiovascular disease.43 The common occurrence of risk factors in diabetic patients such as hypertension and obesity, in addition to age, smoking, and hypercholesterolemia, does not completely explain the increased morbidity and mortality from cardiovascular disease.44 Among other factors that could contribute, alterations in lipoprotein composition and concentration may be among the most important.. Different sizes of LDL have been resolved with the application of gradient gel electrophoresis.2 6 We adapted published protocols for casting nondenaturing gradient gels to separate on the basis of size LDL particles in plasma samples.

Nearly 13% of Hispanic adults have type 2 diabetes (T2DM) and this population is 1.5 times more likely to die from the disease than non Hispanic Whites [1, 2]. However, among Mexican Americans, the largest Hispanic subpopulation, prevalence rates are even higher and are approaching 14% amongst adults 20 years of age and older [3]. For Mexican-American women, the threat of diabetes dominates their daily lives as they have higher prevalence rates than their male counterparts, and are more likely to experience risk factors such as obesity, being overweight, and having sedentary habits, compared to other women in general [4].. These factors and the complexity of diabetes and diabetes management present difficulties for both clinicians and patients. One of the most critical elements of diabetes self-management, but most challenging behaviors to tackle, is diet. The ways of food (foodways) are deeply entrenched in most cultures, including the Mexican-American culture. Therefore, diet is one of the ...
The significance of the family group in the Mexican-American culture emerged from the data. The importance of the extended and nuclear family as a significant social organization system (Kuipers, 1999) was illuminated throughout all interviews. The concept of familism, as discussed by the authors Zoucha & Purnell (2003), was supported by the words of all women in this exploration. Niska (1999) indicates that Mexican-American families rely on intergenerational helping networks. The following excerpts from interviews illustrate and validate the importance of the extended family in the Mexican-American culture: I was there to help raise my three grandchildren ...while my children worked Whatever you do you always have your mother…your family I am very happy with my children...my boys and girls are doing ok We always do things together [referring to siblings] The influence of the family was a dominant theme throughout the interviews and literature related to Mexican-American culture. The ...
In some cases, legal classification of white racial status has made it difficult for Mexican-American rights activists to prove minority discrimination. In the case Hernandez v. Texas (1954), civil rights lawyers for the appellant, named Pedro Hernandez, were confronted with a paradox: because Mexican Americans were classified as white by the federal government and not as a separate race in the census, lower courts held that they were not being denied equal protection by being tried by juries that excluded Mexican Americans by practice. The lower court ruled there was no violation of the Fourteenth Amendment by excluding people with Mexican ancestry among the juries. Attorneys for the state of Texas and judges in the state courts contended that the amendment referred only to racial, not nationality, groups. Thus, since Mexican Americans were tried by juries composed of their racial group-whites-their constitutional rights were not violated. The US Supreme Court ruling in Hernandez v. Texas ...

OBJECTIVE: To examine the health burden associated with concomitant depressive symptoms and diabetes in older Mexican Americans. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS: Data from the Hispanic Established Population for the Epidemiologic Study of the Elderly were used to assess the association between high levels of depressive symptoms, measured with the Center for Epidemiologic Studies of Depression scale, and comorbid chronic health conditions, diabetic complications, functional disability, health service use, and medication use among 636 older diabetic Mexican Americans, in comparison with 2,196 older nondiabetic Mexican Americans. RESULTS: Overall, 31.1% of the older diabetic individuals reported high levels of depressive symptoms. The risks of comorbid myocardial infarction, hypertension, arthritis, and angina were significantly higher in the presence of concomitant depressive symptoms, as were the risks of diabetic complications, functional disability, incontinence, vision impairment, poorer perceived ...
U.S.-born Mexican Americans suffer a large schooling deficit relative to other Americans, and standard data sources suggest that this deficit does not shrink between the 2nd and later generations. Standard data sources lack information on grandparents countries of birth, however, which creates potentially serious issues for tracking the progress of later-generation Mexican Americans. Exploiting unique NLSY97 data that address these measurement issues, we find substantial educational progress between the 2nd and 3rd generations for a recent cohort of Mexican Americans. Such progress is obscured when we instead mimic the limitations inherent in standard data sources. ...

Mexican Americans are 40 percent less likely than non-Hispanic whites to call 9-1-1 and be taken to the hospital via ambulance for stroke -- resulting in medical treatment delays -- according to a new study reported in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association. For the study, researchers used data from the Brain Attack Surveillance in Corpus Christi, Texas (BASIC project)
METHODS: We conducted a cross-sectional analysis of a randomly selected subset (n = 1561/1789) of participants aged 60-101 in the Sacramento Area Latino Study on Aging. Blood samples were tested for APOE genotype, CRP, and immunoglobulin G antibodies to CMV and HSV-1. Multivariate logistic regression was used to examine the association between epsilon4 and CMV and HSV antibody levels. We also assessed whether CRP mediates the effects of any observed associations between epsilon4 and viral antibody levels ...
There were 2,604 ischemic strokes in Mexican Americans and 2,042 in non-Hispanic whites. The rate ratios (Mexican American:non-Hispanic white) were 1.94 (95% confidence interval [CI] = 1.67-2.25), 1.50 (95% CI = 1.35-1.67), and 1.00 (95% CI = 0.90-1.11) among those aged 45 to 59, 60 to 74, and 75 years and older, respectively, and 1.34 (95% CI = 1.23-1.46) when adjusted for age. Ischemic stroke incidence declined during the study period by 35.9% (95% CI = 25.9-44.5). The decline was limited to those aged ≥60 years, and happened in both ethnic groups similarly (p , 0.10), implying that the disparities seen in the 45- to 74-year age group persist unabated. ...
By the time they are teens, second-generation Mexican Americans overwhelming prefer to speak English rather than Spanish, and by the third generation most Mexican Americans no longer speak Spanish at all.. Bullcrap. Where is this sh*t coming from? Maybe this was true back in the 1970s, but it sure as hell isnt any longer. Ahorita la verdad es una cosa muy diferente!. I know this site leans in a conservative direction and Im a conservative Republican myself, but honestly, I dont get this lame, sorry-assed obsession among some conservatives with the English-only crap. Theyre losers. Obsessing about the language people use is a French thing to do, not something that we supposedly self-confident Americans are supposed to be fretting about. As a small business entrepreneur whos been working in the industry for a decade, I can tell you that the tremendous and growing importance of Spanish is due to market forces, supposedly the sort of thing that the Republican Party is a defender of and why ...

At the age of nine, I, along with my eight-year-old sister and my thirteen-year-old brother, became prune pickers. My family had moved from Oaxaca, Mexico, to Northern California to join my father, who had immigrated before us as an undocumented worker. Working alongside us were poor White children-who were openly called Okies-and Black children, as well as Mexican immigrant and Mexican American families. We were all migrants to the Sonoma County farms. It was very exciting to meet kids from all over the West, including migrant families from inland California and Mexican American migrants from Southern Texas. We picked crops together, shared the same improvised outhouses and common showers, and lived in tents at the same labor camp. There was another camp next to us that housed Filipino workers-all single, older men who had been denied the right to marry. My father enjoyed their company and so did I. They were friendly and knew Spanish, and I did not speak English. I particularly liked their ...

Background: Immigration has been the focus of intense political debate, with a recurrent theme being the use of public services, including healthcare. Although Latinos are the largest and fastest growing ethnic group in the United States (U.S.), evidence suggests they underutilize healthcare, with Mexican Immigrants and Mexican Americans (MI-MA) living on the U.S.-Mexico border exhibiting the greatest disparities. Objective: This study explored the association of predisposing, enabling and need characteristics, including legal status, with the use of routine medical care (RMC) among 387 MI-MA living on the California-Mexico border. Methods: This cross-sectional study used data collected in 2009 for the San Diego Prevention Research Center (SDPRC) community survey; data analyses were completed in Summer 2012. This study involved multistage sampling and recruitment of Latino adults in 200 census blocks near the California-Mexico border to complete an interview and height and weight measurements.
Receipt of alcohol-related care for alcohol use is particularly low among those residing in the U.S.-Mexico border region. One reason for this disparity may be limited treatment accessibility, making it difficult for those who need it to access needed treatment. The current study assesses whether differences in treatment utilization are mediated by differences in treatment accessibility in cities ...

Hello. My name is Dee. I live in Texas. I am an American. My ethnicity is Hispanic. Many would call me Mexican or Mexican American. Some call me a female, PRO-Immigration Reform - Ann Coulter. My parents, their parents and theirs were all born in the USA. My husband and I have been happily married for over 20 years. My husband is a big, Irish-American. We have two grown sons. We are happy and my family is doing well. I have been employed as a mid level manager at a very large, well known corporation for over 25 years, now recently retired. In May, 2006, after the Immigration Marches, I started seeing the cable news channels talking very negatively about illegal immigration. I found many internet sites were talking negatively about legal and illegal immigration issues as well. Since I do research on the job, I started conducting Immigration research on the web. I joined several Immigration websites and I researched others. I´ve learned so much about Immigration issues over the last year. What ...
This article examines the health of older Mexican-American immigrants relative to the health of older U.S.-born Mexican-Americans. While younger Mexican-American immigrants are healthier than their U.S.-born Mexican-American counterparts, this relationship has not been established among older Mexican-Americans.
The prevalence rates of type 2 diabetes and its complications including diabetic nephropathy have been rapidly increasing globally, especially in the western world. In the U.S., the occurrence of type 2 diabetes and its complications is high in minority populations such as Mexican Americans, the largest subgroup of the U.S. Hispanic population. Because these disease conditions are influenced by genetic and environmental factors and their interaction, numerous studies have attempted to localize susceptibility genes for nephropathy and its related conditions such as GFR in type 2 diabetes, although the specific genes that underlie such susceptibility have yet to be identified.. In this study, we used data from a Mexican-American population that is at high risk for type 2 diabetes and its complications to examine the genetic determinants of GFR and to determine the influence of G × DM interaction on variation in GFR. We found that the phenotypes GFR-CGc and GFR-4VMDRD are significantly heritable ...
Background: Epidemiologic studies indicate that Mexican Americans (MA) have a higher prevalence of CV risk factors and disease as compared with non-Hispanic whites (NHW). This increase in CV risk may be due, in part, to differences in endothelial function. In this study, we measured endothelial function in cells from normotensive, age-matched MA and NHW donors, as well as the effects of treatment with nebivolol, a new β1-selective blocker with vasodilating properties.. Methods: Endothelial nitric oxide (NO) and peroxynitrite (ONOO−) release in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) from age-matched MA and NHW donors were measured simultaneously using a nanosensor array. The effects of nebivolol on NO and ONOO− release were evaluated following pretreatment (24 h) with a calcium ionophore (CaI) as a receptor-independent stimulus. Endothelial NO synthase (eNOS) levels were measured by Western blot analysis, and drug-membrane interactions were determined by small angle x-ray ...

This study in a large, well-characterized sample of Mexican American participants in the SAFHS9 demonstrated that the arterial PP and SBP shared 36% and 22% of genetic variance with the WB FA of WM, respectively. In the past, the integrity of cerebral WM was commonly assessed using the T2-hyperintense WM (HWM) lesion imaging techniques.5,-,8 HWM lesions are the regions of accumulation of extracellular water attributable to focal degradation of the myelin sheath,14 and their volume is an important neuroimaging marker of cerebral integrity.26 DTI has an advantage over HWM-imaging techniques because it is capable of ascertaining subtle WM damage that precedes formation of HWM lesions.10 Several recent studies confirmed that DTI is a sensitive neuroimaging marker of WM integrity in hypertensive individuals.10,27,28 Specifically, FA values were inversely correlated with the arterial PP and SBP in both normotensive and hypertensive individuals.27. The PP shared more genetic variance with the WB-FA ...

Evidence from migrant population studies and secular trend data indicates that environmental factors play a role in the etiology of non-insulin-dependent (type II) diabetes. These environmental factors appear to be concomitants of the process whereby traditional populations become modernized or westernized and include increased intake of total calories, fat, and sucrose, decreased intake of total and complex carbohydrates, including fiber, and decreased physical exercise. There also appears to be a postmodernization process, which we have characterized as the descending limb of the curve. In Mexican Americans in San Antonio, the prevalence of type II diabetes declines with acculturation to the values, attitudes, and behaviors of postmodernized American society. However, examination of the dietary and exercise concomitants of this process revealed a mixed picture. There was some suggestion that Mexican-American women, although not men, had entered onto the descending limb of the curve. ...
Simple genetic diseases, such as cystic fibrosis and thalassaemia are just that - simple. A single gene underlies them. Finding it is like climbing a steep hill - hard work but straightforward. Complex disorders, such as asthma and type 2 diabetes, by contrast, have many components, which makes finding a cause more like scaling Everest - far harder, requiring more specialist equipment and the strong possibility of failure.. In work published in the October issue of Nature Genetics, University of Chicago researchers have cleared a path to studying the genetic foundation of type 2, or non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM). In a study of a Mexican-American population and two white populations (Finns and Germans) they have found that small genetic variations, called single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs), in a particular gene tend to occur more often in diabetics than in healthy relatives. Although finding a common genetic variation in family groups affected by simple genetic disorders is ...

Background:. More than one-third of U.S. adults are obese. Obesity affects some groups more than others; 42.5% of Hispanic adults are obese, compared to 32.6% of non-Hispanic whites (NHW). In addition, an analysis of recent statistics shows significant increasing trends among women for overall obesity. National Health & Nutrition Examination Survey data shows that between 2007-2010, Mexican American women were 40% more likely to be overweight, as compared to NHW. Contributors to higher rates of obesity among Hispanics include higher rates of food insecurity, limited access to safe places for physical activity, and targeted marketing of unhealthy foods. With high obesity rates among Hispanics, increasing awareness and knowledge about healthier lifestyles has become an important component for many public health interventions. Promotores can play an important role in promoting culturally and linguistically appropriate health education for obesity prevention.. Eat Healthy, Be Active (EHBA) community ...

Ads touting testosterone replacement therapy are ubiquitous on radio and television. But medical research has determined that its success at enhancing libido may come at a price.. Researchers at UNT Health Science Center now report that while testosterone replacement therapy can damage brain health in some Caucasian men, Mexican-Americans appear to be protected from the negative effects of the sex hormone.. In Caucasian men with elevated oxidative stress, testosterone replacement therapy raises the risk of damage to their brain cells, said Rebecca Cunningham, PhD, Assistant Professor of Pharmacology and Neuroscience at UNT Health Sciences Center. But thats not the case for Mexican Americans, who do not appear to be affected by oxidative stress.. The findings, published in the April issue of the Journal of Alzheimers Disease, could lead to a better understanding of the role ethnicity plays in brain diseases and cognition.. Different factors appear to drive dementia, Cunningham said. And ...
Purpose: Adherence to preventive health behaviors for chronic diseases would avert 80% of all heart disease, stroke, type II diabetes, and more than 40% of cancer cases. The purpose of this study is to describe the preventive health behaviors for chronic diseases among Mexican Americans residing along U.S.-Mexico border and in the U.S. Method: Descriptive statistics and chi-square tests were conducted on two rich data sets for Mexican Americans. The first data set (n=1439) was from the Cameron County Hispanic Cohort (CCHC), a prospective cohort study of Mexican American adults aged 18 years and older living in a large and poor city along the Texas- Mexico border. The second data set was the Hispanic Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) for 2009, a national random sample telephone survey (n=30075). Results:In the CCHC, the sample (67.06% female) has a mean age of 48.06 ± 15.60 years, 48.81% employed, 45.66% has less than high school education, 77.57% chose to complete the survey in Spanish

A major consideration in any discussion of the results presented above is the choice of reference population. The ideal population to use would be one with similar growth potential as the Guatemalan population but living in an environment that does not constrain growth. Whether the Mexican-American population is the appropriate choice is not entirely clear. Just as Guatemalans, Mexican-Americans are of Spanish-Indian ancestry, though differences may exist in the proportions of admixture. Mexican-Americans are one of the tallest Hispanic populations reported in the literature (Martorell et al.1989) and are as tall as well-to-do populations from Guatemala (Johnston et al. 1973, Johnston et al. 1976) and Mexico City (Ramos-Galván 1975). Before adolescence, Mexican-Americans are as tall as the general USA population suggesting unconstrained growth but important differences are observed during adolescence (Figure 2). One explanation might be that differences are due to genetic factors that lead to a ...
Mexican Americans (MAs) have a threefold greater prevalence of non-insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (NIDDM) than non-Hispanic Whites (NHWs). Because MA diabetic subjects have greater hyperglycemia and an earlier age of onset than NHW diabetic subjects, we postulated that diabetic MAs might also have more severe diabetic retinopathy. Stereoscopic retinal photographs of the seven standard fields of each eye were taken in 257 MAs and 56 NHWs with NIDDM. The photographs were read by the University of Wisconsin Fundus Photographic Reading Center and graded with standardized criteria. The MAs had a nonsignificantly increased risk of retinopathy relative to the NHWs [odds ratio (OR) = 1.71; 95% confidence interval (CI) = (0.93, 3.17)]. The risk of severe retinopathy (proliferative or preproliferative) relative to background or no retinopathy was significantly greater in MAs than in NHWs [OR = 2.37; 95% CI = (1.04, 5.39)]. After control by logistic regression for duration of disease, severity of ...

The older Hispanic population of the U.S. is growing at a tremendous rate. While ethnic-related risk and complications of diabetes are widely-acknowledged for older Hispanics, less is known about how health related quality of life is affected in this population. Cross-sectional study assessing differences in health related quality of life between older Mexican Americans with and without diabetes. Participants (n = 619) from the Hispanic Established Population for the Epidemiological Study of the Elderly were interviewed in their homes. The primary measure was the Medical Outcomes Study Short Form (SF-36). The sample was 59.6% female with a mean age of 78.3 (SD = 5.2) years. 31.2% (n = 193) of the participants were identified with diabetes. Individuals with diabetes had significantly (F = 19.35, p | .001) lower scores on the Physical Composite scale (mean = 37.50, SD = 12.69) of the SF-36 compared to persons without diabetes (mean = 43.04, SD = 12.22). There was no significant difference between persons

Sitting time and sedentary behaviors have been associated with adverse health outcomes including obesity, diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CVD) within non- Hispanic White populations. Similar associations have not been described within Hispanic populations despite their high CVD risk profile. This study aimed to assess the association between sitting time and obesity, self-reported diagnosed diabetes, hypertension and high cholesterol among a large cohort (N=11,268) of Mexican origin adults and to assess whether obesity mediated these associations. Using a cross-sectional design, data collected between 2004 and 2010 were analyzed in late 2010. Regression analyses evaluated associations between self-reported daily sitting hours and disease outcomes, controlling for demographics, employment status, family disease history, and light, moderate and strenuous physical activity. Participants were mostly female (81.1%) Mexican origin adults. Sitting time was associated with increased odds of being obese,

DALLAS - Mexican-American stroke survivors with a heart rhythm disorder have more than twice the risk for another stroke compared to non-Hispanic whites, according to a study published in Stroke: Journal of the American Heart Association.. Mexican-Americans recurrent strokes are also more likely to be severe, though they dont have a greater risk of death after stroke, researchers said.. Researchers compared 88 Mexican-American and 148 non-Hispanic white stroke survivors who had atrial fibrillation, a disorder in which the hearts upper chambers (called the atria) beat irregularly and dont pump blood effectively, possibly causing blood to pool within the atria and blood clot formation in the heart.. They found that the likelihood of suffering another stroke during the study follow-up period was more than double for Mexican-Americans than for non-Hispanic whites. Although stroke recurrence was higher and strokes were more severe among Mexican-Americans, death rates didnt differ between the two ...
