Urinary trichlorophenol levels and increased risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder among US school-aged children.

| EPI-BIO, Our Research

Xu X, Nembhard WN, Kan H, Kearney G, Zhang ZJ, Talbott EO. Urinary trichlorophenol levels and increased risk of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder among US school-aged children. Occup Environ Med. 2011 May 3. [Epub ahead of print] PubMed PMID: 21540483. Abstract Background Trichlorophenols (TCPs) are organochlorine compounds which are ubiquitous in the environment and well known for their carcinogenic effects. However, little is known about their neurotoxicity in humans. Objectives Our goal was to examine the association between body burden of TCPs (ie, 2,4,5-TCP and 2,4,6-TCP) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). […]

Odedina FT, Dagne G, Larose-Pierre M, Scrivens J, Emanuel F, Adams A, Pressey S, Odedina O. Within-Group Differences Between Native-Born and Foreign-Born Black Men on Prostate Cancer Risk Reduction and Early Detection Practices. J Immigr Minor Health. 2011 May 6. [Epub ahead of print] PubMed PMID: 21547350. Abstract To better address prostate cancer disparities, we investigated the differences among US-born, African-born, and Caribbean-born Black men on prostate cancer risk reduction and early detection behaviors. Data were collected from over 3,400 Black men in five cities in Florida. One-way analysis of variance was […]

Community-academic partnerships to reduce black-white disparities in infant mortality in Florida.

| EPI-BIO, Our Research

Community-academic partnerships to reduce black-white disparities in infant mortality in Florida. Salihu HM, August EM, Alio AP, Jeffers D, Austin D, Berry E. Community-academic partnerships to reduce black-white disparities in infant mortality in Florida. Prog Community Health Partnersh. 2011 Spring;5(1):53-66. PubMed PMID: 21441669. Abstract PROBLEM: In Florida, data reveal a widening black-white disparity in infant mortality to the disadvantage of black families. Eight Florida counties have a significantly pronounced black-white infant mortality gap: Broward, Duval, Gadsden, Hillsborough, Miami-Dade, Orange, Palm Beach, and Putnam. PURPOSE: The black Infant Health Community Collaborative […]
