End Sequence Profiling Computational Lab - Oliver Hampton
Computational laboratory: Starting from a set of breast cancer BACs (bacterial artificial chromosomes) End Sequence Profiling (ESP) is performed. ESP analysis sequences the ends of insert DNA in order to characterize genomic rearrangements that may be involved in breast cancer progression. In this study, genomic rearrangements are characterized from 100 breast cancer BACs and 10,000 Fosmids (derived from a pool of the 100 originating BAC) using ESP. Analysis and comparison of both BAC and Fosmid

Health care workers wanted; Minority, disadvantaged students shown possible careers
Carmilla Black wants to be a pediatric nurse, and that's good news for a city looking for minority health care workers. She likes medicine and children and thinks the career would be a good fit for her personality. The Rufus King High School senior is not sure if she'll attend college in Wisconsin, Tennessee or Minnesota, but she definitely knows that she'll work somewhere in the Milwaukee area once she completes her schooling. To ensure that Black and other graduates with similar in
The Association of Race, Socioeconomic Status, and Health Insurance Status With the Prevalence of Ov
Objectives. We examined the effect of race, socioeconomic status, and health insurance status on the prevalence of overweight among children and adolescents. Methods. We studied an observational cohort from the 1996 Medical Expenditure Panel Survey Household Component. Results. In the younger group, both Black and Latino children had a greater likelihood of being overweight compared with White children. Among the adolescent group, Latinos and Asian/Pacific Islanders were more likely to be over
Marshfield Clinic Personalized Medicine Research Project (PMRP): design, methods and recruitment for
Objectives: The objective of this paper is to summarize the planning for Phase I of the Marshfield Clinic Personalized Medicine Research Project (PMRP) and to describe the recruitment efforts in the first 2 years. Methods: The purpose of Phase I of the PMRP was to develop a large population-based biobank with DNA, plasma and serum samples to facilitate genomics research. Planning and consultation was facilitated with three external boards: the Ethics and Security Advisory Board; the Scientific
Very Low Birthweight in African American Infants: The Role of Maternal Exposure to Interpersonal Rac
Objectives. We determined whether African American women’s lifetime exposure to interpersonal racial discrimination is associated with pregnancy outcomes. Methods. We performed a case–control study among 104 African American women who delivered very low birthweight (<1500 g) preterm (<37 weeks) infants and 208 African American women who delivered non–low-birthweight (>2500g) term infants in Chicago, Ill. Results. The unadjusted and adjusted odds ratio of very low birthweight infants for
Is Lipid-Lowering Therapy Underused by African Americans at High Risk of Coronary Heart Disease With
Objectives. We examined whether racial differences exist in cholesterol monitoring, use of lipid-lowering agents, and achievement of guideline-recommended lowdensity lipoprotein (LDL) levels for secondary prevention of coronary heart disease. Methods. We reviewed charts for 1045 African American and White patients with coronary heart disease at 5 Veterans Affairs (VA) hospitals. Results. Lipid levels were obtained in 67.0% of patients. Whites and African Americans had similar screening rates an
Endometrial Cancer: Socioeconomic Status and Racial/Ethnic Differences in Stage at Diagnosis, Treatm
Objective. We evaluated the association between socioeconomic status and racial/ ethnic differences in endometrial cancer stage at diagnosis, treatment, and survival. Methods. We conducted a population-based study among 3656 women. Results. Multivariate analyses showed that either race/ethnicity or income, but not both, was associated with advanced-stage disease. Age, stage at diagnosis, and income were independent predictors of hysterectomy. African American ethnicity, increased age, aggressi
The Health Impact of Resolving Racial Disparities: An Analysis of US Mortality Data
The US health system spends far more on the “technology” of care (e.g., drugs, devices) than on achieving equity in its delivery. For 1991 to 2000, we contrasted the number of lives saved by medical advances with the number of deaths attributable to excess mortality among African Americans. Medical advances averted 176 633 deaths, but equalizing the mortality rates of Whites and African Americans would have averted 886202 deaths. Achieving equity may do more for health than perfecting the te
Stage at Diagnosis and Survival in a Multiethnic Cohort of Prostate Cancer Patients
Objectives. We evaluated the effects of socioeconomic status and comorbidity on stage of disease and survival among 1,509 population-based prostate cancer patients. Methods. We applied logistic regression and Cox proportional hazards regression to data from Whites, African Americans, and Asian Americans who were diagnosed from 1987 to 1991. Results. Patients with existing comorbid conditions were less likely than those without these conditions to be diagnosed with advanced cancer. Compared wit
