Predictors of Retention and Passing the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses  [PDF]
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.
A neuropsychological evaluation of orthorexia nervosa  [PDF]
Nancy S. Koven, Rina Senbonmatsu
Open Journal of Psychiatry (OJPsych) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/ojpsych.2013.32019

Orthorexia nervosa (ON) describes a fixation for proper nutrition and healthy foods that leads to die-tary restrictions and nutritional deficiencies over time. Given symptom overlap among ON, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), and anorexia nervosa (AN), this study examines whether ON has a unique neuropsychological profile. Participants completed symptom checklists and neuropsychological tests chosen for their sensitivity to AN and OCD. Results showed that, across the full sample, ON is independently associated with self-reported weaknesses in Set-Shifting, Emotional Control, Self-Monitoring, and Working Memory. After controlling for AN and OCD variables, high- and low-ON groups differed in total correct trials on the Wisconsin Card Sorting Test. These areas of executive functioning, which are explained in the context of ON symptomatology, represent what would be considered the neuropsychological overlap among OCD and AN profiles.

Secret sharers in the immune system: a novel RNA editing activity links switch recombination and somatic hypermutation
Nancy Maizels
Genome Biology , 2000, DOI: 10.1186/gb-2000-1-4-reviews1025
Abstract: We have become accustomed to the notion that the immune system tampers with the genome. First, rearrangement of V,D, and J gene segments creates the antigen receptor variable regions. V(D)J recombination depends on the site-specific recombination proteins, RAG1 and RAG2, and occurs early in development of both B cells and T cells (reviewed in [1,2]). Subsequent encounter with antigen stimulates two additional and distinct processes that modify the genomes of B cells, but not T cells: class switch recombination and somatic hypermutation (see Figure 1). Switch recombination joins an expressed heavy chain variable (VDJ) region to a new downstream constant (C) region, changing the antigen clearance properties of an antibody without altering its specificity for antigen (reviewed in [3,4]). Switch recombination is a region-specific recombination process that deletes many kilobases of DNA and produces heterogeneous recombination junctions. Circles containing the deleted DNA can be found in B cells that have recently completed switch recombination, suggesting that regions targeted for recombination can synapse to form a recombination intermediate, which is then cleaved and religated. In contrast, somatic hypermutation is a targeted mutation process resulting in single nucleotide substitutions. These single base changes occur in an expressed heavy or light chain variable region, providing the genetic raw material for subsequent selection of clones producing high-affinity antibodies (reviewed in [5]). The currently prevailing model for hypermutation envisions an initial DNA break that is repaired by an error-prone polymerase, but no specific nuclease or polymerase has as yet been conclusively linked to somatic hypermutation.Recent results, appearing in the September 1 issue of Cell [6,7], now show that the immune system's tampering is not limited to DNA, but that RNA editing is an additional tool in its bag of tricks. These exciting results have many implications. First, they
"Todas las caperucitas rojas se vuelven lobos en la práctica pospornográfica"
Prada, Nancy;
Cadernos Pagu , 2012, DOI: 10.1590/S0104-83332012000100005
Abstract: feminist theory has constructed a particular criticism of pornography that is far from being uniform and takes the character of a debate. its origins take place in the u.s. in the late seventies, where two positions consolidate: an anti-pornography and a pro-sex. in spain authors like raquel osborne and dolores juliano assume the second posture, creating grounds for the consolidation of porn-feminism, which tries to eliminate andocentric biases of the pornographic speech, producing pornography with additional purposes besides the masturbatory.
Reconhecimento sem ética?
Fraser, Nancy;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452007000100006
Abstract: in the course of the last 30 years, feminist theories of gender have shifted from quasi-marxist, labor-centered conceptions to putatively ?post-marxist? culture-and identity-based conceptions. reflecting a broader political move from redistribution to recognition, this shift has been double edged. on the one hand, it has broadened feminist politics to encompass legitimate issues of representation, identity and difference. yet, in the context of an ascendant neoliberalism, feminist struggles for recognition may be serving less to enrich struggles for redistribution than to displace the latter. thus, instead of arriving at a broader, richer paradigm that could encompass both redistribution and recognition, feminists appear to have traded one truncated paradigm for another - a truncated economism for a truncated culturalism. this article aims to resist that trend. i propose an analysis of gender that is broad enough to house the full range of feminist concerns, those central to the old socialist-feminism as well as those rooted in the cultural turn. i also propose a correspondingly broad conception of justice, capable of encompassing both distribution and recognition, and a non-identitarian account of recognition, capable of synergizing with redistribution. i conclude by examining some practical problems that arise when we try to envision institutional reforms that could redress gender maldistribution and gender misrecognition simultaneously.
Reenquadrando a justi?a em um mundo globalizado
Fraser, Nancy;
Lua Nova: Revista de Cultura e Política , 2009, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-64452009000200001
Abstract: globalization is changing the way we argue about justice. arguments that used to focus chiefly on the question of what is owed as a matter of justice to community members now turn quickly into disputes about who should count as a member and which is the relevant community. not only the substance of justice but also the frame is in dispute. the result is a major challenge to our theories of social justice, which have so far failed to develop conceptual resources for reflecting on the question of the frame. the article argues that in order to deal satisfactorily with this problem, the theory of justice must become three-dimensional, incorporating the political dimension of representation, alongside the economic dimension of distribution and the cultural dimension of recognition.

A quest?o metodológica na produ??o vigotskiana e a dialética marxista
Romanelli, Nancy;
Psicologia em Estudo , 2011, DOI: 10.1590/S1413-73722011000200003
Abstract: in this essay, we attempt to approach certain formulations posed by vigotski in the methodological field. highlighting the notable influence of marx's and engel's ideas upon the work of the byelorussian psychologist, we have aimed at: a) pointing out vigotski's criticism to the simplistic applications of historical and dialectical materialism to psychology; b) bringing back the proposal elaborated by the author to the general psychology; c) indicating certain methodological instruments elaborated by the psychologist himself; d) identifying, in vigotski's theoretical and methodological search, the marxist dialectical presuppositions. the undertaking, in this present study, of vigotski's methodological inquiries has brought forth the following preliminary conclusions: a) the specific search and the general formulations represent two indissoluble levels in the cultural-historical approach; b) the dialectical-materialist analysis of psychology's epistemological dilemmas is directly linked to the broader field of scientific production; c) the specific manner by which vigotski has integrated the marxist legacy to psychology is potentially able to contribute, also, to other areas of knowledge.
