Ethnicity and Help-seeking
Kyle L. Gravel¹, Christina J. Sun², Nana Sadamura¹, Erin Moniz¹

Ethnic minorities have traditionally underutilized mental health services. It has been proposed that both willingness to see a counselor and attitudes towards seeking psychological help may impact utilization of psychological services among ethnic minority populations. The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between willingness to see a counselor and attitudes toward seeking psychological help among college students.

Clinical Outcomes and Emerging Challenges after 5 years of ART in Khayelitsha, South Africa
Gilles Van Cutsem1, Katherine Hilderbrand1,2, David Coetzee2,3, Carol Cragg3, Eric Goemaere1 & Andrew Boulle2,3

One of the first primary care antiretroviral treatment programs in Africa shows good patient outcomes at 5 years. Saturation of services has led to increased losses to follow-up.

Panic attack and suicide risk: A multivariate logistic regression analysis of a national epidemiological survey
Curren Katz, Ramin Mojtabai, Leo Bierman, Kathleen Camacho, Janine Samuel, Gillian Jennings, Igor Galynker

To examine the relationship between panic attack and suicide risk, we analyzed data from a representative epidemiological survey of 43,093 adults (NESARC) using logistic regression controlling for socio-demographic and clinical variables. In depression, panic attacks are associated with increased odds of suicide attempt even after controlling for demographic and clinical variables. Furthermore, panic attacks can differentiate those who attempt suicide from those with ideation only.

What reduces ambulatory sensitive hospitalisation?
Arindam Basu and David Brinson

This poster showcases our review of interventions that were found to be effective in reducing ambulatory sensitive hospitalisations (ASH). ASH refers to those conditions where hospitalisations an be avoided by measures taken by clinicians and other carers at outpatient departments or in the community.

SYBR® Green I as a biomarker for schizophrenia
Davood Zaeifi, Mehdi Rahmati, Vahab Piranfar

The purpose of this study were to examine if the mRNA of the peripheral dopamine receptor is changed in schizophrenia patients. 50 Naive patients were enrolled. After extracting RNA from white blood cells, cDNA is synthesized. After doing the quantitative Real-time PCR, expression of D3 receptors in healthy persons and patients were compared. Results of this examinations reveals that expression of D3 receptor is increased in compared with controls sample.

T cell response to cholera infection
Weil AA, Arifuzzaman M, Bhuiyan TR, Harris JB, Kendall EA, Hossain A, LaRocque RC, Harris AM, Tarique AA, Chowdhury F, Khan AI, Banerjee KK, Ryan ET, Qadri F, Calderwood SB

Natural Vibrio cholerae infection generates a robust B-cell response that wanes for T-cell independent antigens, suggesting that B-cell responses may be mediated in a T-cell dependent manner. Patients with cholera develop a memory-effector T-cell response to cholera antigens, and B-cell activation occurs after T-cell population expansion, suggesting that T-cells may play an important role in the development and maintenance of memory B-cell responses to T-cell dependent antigens.

A Novel Multiplexed Digital Gene Expression Technology
Gary K. Geiss1,#, Roger Bumgarner2, Brian Birditt1, Timothy Dahl1, Naeem Dowidar1, Dwayne L. Dunaway1, H. Perry Fell1, Sean Ferree1, Renee D. George1, Tammy Grogan1, Jeffrey J. James1, Malini Maysuria1, Jeffrey D. Mitton1, Paola Oliveri4, Jennifer L. Osborn3, Tao Peng2, Amber L. Ratcliffe1, Philippa J. Webster1, Eric H. Davidson4, and Leroy Hood5

We describe a novel platform, the nCounter Analysis System, for sensitive, highly multiplexed, digital gene expression analysis based on NanoString’s novel molecular barcoding technology. Detection of individual mRNA molecules using an assigned sequence of six different fluorescent spots per probe are detected, and then the number of times that code sequence appears in a sample are counted.
