Nancy Elkins
Open Journal of Nursing (OJN) , 2015, DOI: 10.4236/ojn.2015.53026
Abstract: Using Seidman’s retention formula as a theoretical foundation, this study investigated historical data from a Bachelor of Science (BSN) nursing program to determine whether the admission variables of the preprogram grade point averages (GPA), American College Testing (ACT) scores, anatomy and physiology course grades, and/or the Health Education System Inc. (HESI) Exit Exam scores could predict completing the nursing program, as well as passing the NCLEX-RN. A significant relationship (p < 0.01) was identified between the preprogram GPA, ACT scores, anatomy grades, and the HESI Exit Exam scores with the completion of the BSN program and passing the NCLEX-RN.
Pharmacogenomics: The Significance of Genetics in the Metabolism of Natural Medicines  [PDF]
Nancy W. Hanna
Journal of Biomaterials and Nanobiotechnology (JBNB) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/jbnb.2012.34046
Abstract: Natural products have been implemented in medicine through use as herbal medications, chemical compound extraction for prescription medication, or a natural source of food to fight various infections and diseases. Genetics has played a role in identifying various interactions between existing drugs and side effects. In addition, various food allergies have been identified with children in recent years, suggesting genetic associations between certain populations carrying specific genetic alleles. The recent availability of genomic data and our increased understanding of the effects of genetic variations permit a quantitative examination of the contribution of genetic variation to efficacy or toxicity of compounds derived from natural sources. The identification of target molecules relevant for diseases allows screening for natural products capable of inhibiting targets which can lead to the development of rational treatment of various diseases including neurobiological disorders, cancer, osteoporosis, and cardiovascular diseases. This allows for more opportunities to predict the response of individual patients. Identification of genetic variations that arose as a consequence of naturally occurring compounds will help identify gene alleles, or protein ligands that can affect the pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetics of the natural products in question. In addition, diet modification and precautions to food products can be identified to help consumers limit or increase certain food intake. Understanding the molecular mechanisms underlying these interactions and their modification by genetic variation is expected to result in the development of new drugs that optimize individual health. We expect that strategies for individualized therapies will lead to improved results for patients.

Abstract: Introduction: The objective of this study was to explore the experiences and perceptions of children with food allergies at summer camp. Methods: Qualitative draw-and-tell interviews were conducted with 14 food allergic individuals aged 5 - 12 years to capture their lived experience with food allergies at summer camp. Results: Four key interdependent themes: trust, accommodation, proactive parents and coping strategies were identified in how children perceive their food allergies in unregulated summer camp environments.
Development and Preliminary Validation of the Older Adult Service Usage Assessment  [PDF]
Nancy J. Karlin
Advances in Aging Research (AAR) , 2017, DOI: 10.4236/aar.2017.64007
This study provides information on the development and factor scaling, validity, and reliability of a newly developed community service utilization measure (Older Adult Service Usage Assessment-OASUA). Analyzes indicate the OASUA can be used to assess current perceived community service use and satisfaction, as well as providing an indication for future service use and potential service needs with older persons. Additional data collection sites should be identified and a broader sample obtained so as to confirm the psychometric properties of the instrument in conjunction with further development of the OASUA.

Abstract: longissimus dorsi samples were obtained from 23 criollo limonero (cl) steers, that were subjected to supplementation treatments (at 36 months of age), during 158 d of fattening on pasture, as follows: t1= a non-suplemented (control) group, grazing on echinochloa polystachia grass; t2= grazing plus 1 kg/d/head of a concentrate to 11% crude protein (cp), and t3= grazing plus 1h/d of pruning an arboreal legume (leucaena leucocephala). after postmortem, muscles samples were removed from their carcasses to study the effects of supplementation on the proximal (content of protein, moisture, total lipids and ash) and mineral composition (ca, mg, na, k, fe, zn, mn, cu, and p), cholesterol content. analysis of variance was conducted by the least squares method. the variance analysis did not reveal significant effect (p>0.05) of the supplementation treatments on the proximal composition, cholesterol and mineral content in the longissimus dorsi muscle. meat derived from criollo limonero steers showed low levels of total lipids and cholesterol, which indicated that meat derived from these animals could be marketed as light meat or low in fat.
