WASHINGTON, D.C. - Today, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown (D-OH) reinforced his support for rural Ohio and hospitals in the region following a new report that found the Appalachian region faces unique health challenges and lack of access to care and doctors. The Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), and the Foundation for Health Kentucky authored the report, Health Disparities in Appalachia. The report compares health indicators of the Appalachian Region to those of the nation as a whole, and found substantial disparities in health outcomes and other health-related factors in Ohios Appalachian Region.. This study reveals what we know is true about the unique health challenges Appalachian Ohioans are facing, said Brown. From finding doctors in the area to increasing wages and household income, there is more work to be done to get Ohioans access to the health care they need. We must continue to invest in this region through sources like the Appalachian ...
Washington, D.C., December 9, 2008 - Trust for Americas Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF) today released the sixth annual Ready or Not? Protecting the Publics Health from Diseases, Disasters, and Bioterrorism report, which finds that progress made to better protect the country from disease outbreaks, natural disasters, and bioterrorism is now at risk, due to budget cuts and the economic crisis. In addition, the report concludes that major gaps remain in many critical areas of preparedness, including surge capacity, rapid disease detection, and food safety. Wyoming achieved 7 out of 10 possible indicators for health emergency preparedness capabilities. More than half of states and D.C. achieved a score of seven or less out of 10 key indicators. Louisiana, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wisconsin scored highest with 10 out of 10. Arizona, Connecticut, Florida, Maryland, Montana, and Nebraska tied for the lowest score with five out of 10.. Over the past six ...
Washington, D.C., September 1, 2016 - The adult obesity rate in Idaho is 28.6 percent, giving them the 33rd highest rate, according to The State of Obesity: Better Policies for a Healthier America, a report from the Trust for Americas Health (TFAH) and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF).. U.S. adult obesity rates decreased in four states (Minnesota, Montana, New York and Ohio), increased in two (Kansas and Kentucky) and remained stable in the rest, between 2014 and 2015. This marks the first time in the past decade that any states have experienced decreases - aside from a decline in Washington, D.C. in 2010.. Despite these modest gains, obesity continued to put millions of Americans at increased risk for a range of chronic diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease, and costs the country between $147 billion and $210 billion each year.. In 2015, Louisiana has the highest adult obesity rate at 36.2 percent and Colorado has the lowest at 20.2 percent. While rates remained steady for most ...

Z-scores (or standardization) is a way to combine data with different units of measurement into a single index. The z-score is a measure of how far away a city (or census tract, etc.) is from the average city. In order to be comparable across different units of measurement, the z-score is the distance from the mean measured in standard deviations (e.g. if Louisville has a z-score of 1 it means Louisville is 1 standard deviation above the mean of its peer cities).. Data from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundations County Health Rankings use z-scores and all z-scores are relative to the mean of Louisvilles peer cities. (On the County Health Rankings site z-scores are relative to all the counties in each state - thus z-scores reported by GLP will be different, because we are using a different reference group). The Greater Louisville Project also uses z-scores in our multidimensional poverty index, which compares each census tract to the mean of all census tracts in Louisville.. ...

Department of Urology, Mayo Graduate School, Mayo Foundation, Rochester, Minnesota, MN 55905, USA. Androgens via their cognate receptor may be involved in the development and progression of prostate cancer. The aim of this study was to determine whether tea polyphenols have inhibitory effects on androgen action in an androgen-responsive, prostate cancer cell line, LNCaP. The tea polyphenol, EGCG, inhibited LNCaP cell growth and the expression of androgen regulated PSA and hK2 genes. Moreover, EGCG had a significant inhibitory effect on the androgenic inducibility of the PSA promoter. Immunoblotting detected a decrease in androgen receptor protein with treatments of the tea polyphenols EGCG, GCG and theaflavins. Northern blot analysis showed decreased levels of androgen receptor mRNA by EGCG. Transient transfections demonstrated that EGCG and theaflavins could repress the transcriptional activities of the androgen receptor promoter region. An Sp1 binding site in the androgen receptor gene ...

The Trinidad Regional Virus Laboratory (T.R.V.L.) was established in Port of Spain, in 1953 by the Rockefeller Foundation in co-operation with the Government of Trinidad and Tobago. It was originally housed in an old wooden army barracks near the docks in Port of Spain. A large wired-in animal house was built out back to house the many wild animals brought in for study. The Virus labs first Director was the renowned epidemiologist, Dr Wilbur Downs who served in that role until 1961. In that year the laboratory was moved to new buildings at Federation Park, Port of Spain and, in 1964, became part of the Department of Microbiology of the University of the West Indies under the direction of Dr Leslie Spence, who had been with the laboratory since 1954. It is now part of the Caribbean Epidemiology Center (Carec) in Port of Spain. The laboratory was one of four tropical virus research laboratories sponsored by the Rockefeller Foundation during the 1950s, including one in Brazil and two in Africa. ...
As was noted earlier, Rockefeller believed in the importance of generosity. In fact, he tithed ten percent of his first paycheck to his local church and maintained that discipline throughout his life. With his high value on education, Rockefeller helped fund colleges like Spelman College, which was named after his in-laws.. Rockefeller also supported missionary work. In 1905, he gave a grant to the American Baptist Missionaries to help establish Central Philippine University, the first Baptist University in Asia. He also supported Ivy League schools such as Yale, Harvard, and Brown. In 1913, he created the Rockefeller Foundation which gave to public health, medical training, and the arts. This foundation endowed Johns Hopkins and it built the Peking Union Medical College in China.. But he did not merely fund causes. He also invented certain ways of giving that are still used today. For example, he created the conditional grant, which promoted both recurring donations and the opportunity for ...
During his early years of research, the French silkworm industry had asked Pasteur for help in finding out the causes of an epidemic that was killing their worm colonies, and whether there was a possible cure. His eventual discovery - that microorganisms were causing the colony deaths - saved the French silk industry from bankruptcy. This gave him the first hint that he was on the right path. He then spent the rest of his life researching germs and developing vaccines against them.. He presented his findings to fellow researchers from the French Academy of Sciences. At first, however, they didnt take him seriously. Some scientists, such as Robert Koch, categorized microorganisms as phenomena of nature that temporarily appeared and then disappeared but were not actually alive.. This criticism didnt sit well with Pasteur. I give them experiments and they respond with speeches!, he once said. In his mind, the fixed ideas and inflexible thinking patterns at that time were dangerous both for ...

Devon, a 7-year-old golden retriever, underwent surgery early Friday morning to have the mass removed from his left front paw. It was shipped to a lab for further testing, and if the results showed a malignancy, chemotherapy or radiation treatments likely would have been needed.. Dr. David Shuman, who operates the Santa Cruz Westside Animal Hospital, donated his services to remove the growth, and when the lab learned of Santa Cruz resident Tori Stitts story, they donated their services and put STAT all over it, he said Monday.. Meanwhile, when the community learned the invaluable services Devon provides to help Stitt cope with post-traumatic stress disorder - including licking her awake to interrupt persistent nightmares - they eagerly opened their wallets, donating about $8,000.. Shuman and Stitt both expressed their appreciation for the outpouring of support.. Its amazing to see how the community will come together to support someone like me, Stitt said.

by Tori Hamby. With so many behavioral treatments for pets - from dog whisperers to medication and expensive training programs - exasperated owners might have difficulty sifting through their options.. Like humans, pets can suffer from a variety of mental disorders that cause behavioral problems, veterinarians say. These disorders - including obsessive compulsive and anxiety disorders, and even Alzheimers disease - can show themselves in a pets predilection to tear up the house when left alone, tendency to urinate when panicked, aggression or other destructive behaviors.. Pretty much anything you see in human behavior, we have on the animal side as well, said Mike Heinen, owner of Lake Norman Animal Hospital in Mooresville.. Alycen Adams, a veterinarian at Carolinas Veterinary Care Clinic in Huntersville, said symptoms of OCD in pets include walking in circles to the point where paws become bloody and, in cats, excessive grooming. OCD is also common in birds, which pick at their feathers as ...

This study ruled out two candidate genes as the gene responsible for Fanconi Syndrome (FS) in Basenjis. FS, an inherited disease, is a major health concern for the breed. With this syndrome, the tubules in the kidney, for unknown reasons, fail to do their job of reabsorbing nutrients into the dog�s system. Undetected, it will shorten the dog�s life. The researchers selected two candidate genes, HNF1 and HNF2, to test to see whether either is responsible for FS in Basenjis. After sequencing the HNF1 gene, they determined that it is not responsible for FS. Repeated attempts to sequence the HNF2 gene proved unsuccessful and were terminated when it became know that mutations in human HNF2 cause diabetes, rather than Fanconi Syndrome.
