Data and figures are provided on the effects of fluoxetine, a selective serotin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant, on the gut microbiome and metabolome in a rat model to better understand the effect of this drug on women during gestation and lactation. Throughout pregnancy and lactation, female rats received the SSRI fluoxetine or vehicle. High resolution 16S ribosomal RNA marker gene sequencing and targeted metabolic analysis were used to assess the fecal microbiome and metabolic availability, respectively.
This dataset collected 40 ml of heparinized blood from 20 COVID-19 patients who were admitted to the University of Maryland Medical Center between June and August of 2020. Plasma samples were collected at a median of 10 or 7 days, dependent on the patient's risk group. Samples were analyzed using full-length recombinant protein in an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Antibodies were screened against 9 different SARS-CoV-2 proteins. Responses were observed against the spike (S) proteins, the receptor-binding domain (RBD), and the nucleocapsid (N) protein which were of the IgG1 and IgG3 subtypes. Studies using this dataset aim to identify the most relevant component of the anti-SARS-CoV-2 humoral immune response and enable researchers to design more meaningful immunomonitoring methods for anti-COVID19 vaccines.
This study investigates multiple vaccine strategies to enhance immunogenicity and protection against SARS-CoV-2 in aged mice. The study aims to determine the effect of a booster dose, with an emphasis on older age. Female three and eleven-month-old BALB/c mice were studied over the course of 38 weeks. Mice received BNT162b2 SARS-CoV-2 spike mRNA vaccine series, primary vaccination series, and mock Phosphate-buffered saline (PBS) injections. Single mouse experiments aimed to include 20 mice per group. Sample size and age criteria were chosen empirically based on the results of previous studies. Mice were randomly assigned to different treatment groups.
The UMM Biorepository is a resource building effort that includes banking of blood samples from UMMS patients as well as collections of various biospecimens from collaborating UM researchers. State-of-the-art robotic freezer and liquidhandling equipment offer a secure and managed environment for biospecimen processing, storage and distribution. Data connected to the samples is obtained through the electronic health record and/or study-specific data collection, allowing for multi-disciplinary research that can impact a range of health issues. Access to data and biospecimens is dependent upon specific study requirements.
Rwanda Demographic Health Surveys, part of the USAID Demographic Health Surveys Program, provide reliable estimates of fertility levels, marriage, sexual activity, fertility preferences, family planning methods, breastfeeding practices, nutrition, childhood and maternal mortality, maternal and child health, early childhood development, malaria, domestic violence, and HIV/AIDS and other STIs. The information collected is intended to assist policymakers and program managers in evaluating and designing programs and strategies for improving the health of the country’s population. The Demographic and Health Survey has been conducted in Rwanda for the following years: 1992, 2000, 2005, 2010, 2014-15, and 2019-20.
This dataset was generated to investigate long-lasting neurobiological adaptations to drugs of abuse. This dataset specifically supported the study of cocaine exposure impact of mitochondrial dynamics and morphology through early growth response factor 3 (Egr3) transcriptional regulation of mitochondria-related nuclear gene transcripts. Mitochondria-related nuclear genes were assayed following contingent or non-contingent cocaine exposure in rodents and were also examined in postmortem nucleus accumbens (NAc) of cocaine dependents.
Supplemental data in tabular forms include human demographics, DNA sequencing primers, mitochondrial statistical analysis, and gene regulations.
The following data elements were observed over a period of 7-10 days: Egr3 change in response to cocaine vs saline between rats and human postmortem issue; Egr3 binding changes in various genes promoting mitochondria in response to cocaine vs saline between rats and human postmortem issue; mRNA change in response to cocaine and saline between rats and human postmortem issue and between cocaine addict and control group; mRNA change in response to cocaine and saline between rats and human dead issue; Ribosome (the RNA binding proteins) associated mRNA changes in dopamine receptor-1 containing medium spiny neurons (D1 MSNs) and D2 MSNs in response to cocaine and saline between cocaine addict and control group.
The National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES) is a program of studies designed to assess the health and nutritional status of adults and children in the United States. Participants are selected via a random sampling method. The survey is unique in that it combines interviews and physical examinations. The NHANES interview includes demographic, socioeconomic, dietary, and health-related questions. The examination component consists of medical, dental, and physiological measurements, as well as laboratory tests administered by highly trained medical personnel.
The Health Outcomes and Measures of the Environment (HOME) Study, a prospective pregnancy and birth cohort in the greater Cincinnati OH metropolitan area, was established to determine whether early life environmental chemical exposures influence children’s health. Data include longitudinal and repeated measures of chemical exposures and child health beginning in the gestational age of 16.0 weeks with follow ups until 8 years of age. This includes 100+ environmental chemical exposures measured in women and children, as well as repeated measures of child neurodevelopment, anthropometry, respiratory and allergy outcomes, and injuries.
