1. Samaniego, Irma. DO SOCIAL ISOLATION AND DEPRESSION AFFECT RATES OF HOSPITAL READMISSION FOR PATIENTS WITH HEART FAILURE?.

Degree: College of Nursing, 2010, University of New Mexico

Heart failure (HF) is a syndrome that primarily affects the aged and is the most common hospital discharge diagnosis for adults in the United States. Readmission is common following discharge from an acute hospital stay for HF. Patients with HF suffer more depressive morbidity than other patients with cardiovascular disease, and many age 65 or older experience social isolation. This prospective exploratory study examined whether readmission within 30 to 60 days of discharge from an index hospitalization for HF was associated with depressive symptoms or social isolation. A convenience sample of 101 patients participated during an index hospitalization for HF. Participants were followed-up for any readmissions within 30 or 60 days of discharge. Depressive symptoms were measured with the 15-item Geriatric Depression Scale (GDS-15) and social isolation with the Lubben Social Network Scale (LSNS). At least one readmission for HF occurred for 27 participants within 30 days and for 31 within 60 days. Cronbachs alpha for the GDS-15 was extremely low (.39), and few participants (n = 9) had scores consistent with risk for depression; hence, GDS-15 scores were inadequate for testing any association with readmission. The LSNS was reliable (alpha = .77), and 13 participants (13%) had scores consistent with social isolation. There was no association between social isolation and readmission within 30 or 60 days. However, responses to the LSNS helped to identify several patients whose need for social services had not been identified by hospital staff. In exploratory analyses, b-type natriuretic peptide (BNP) within 24 hours of the index admission was associated with readmission, median = 3327 vs. 852 pg/ml, p=.056, and 3782 vs. 845 pg ml, p=.016 for any vs. no readmission within 30 or 60 days, respectively. Limitations include convenience sampling and possible sampling bias as well as a relatively brief follow-up period. Despite the lack of association with readmission, there may be other reasons for screening patients hospitalized for HF for depression or social isolation. The association between BNP and readmission merits further investigation in a study designed for that purpose.

2. Mounce, Joanna. Diffusion tensor imaging data reveals GRM3 polymorphism's association with white matter integrity in schizophrenia.

Degree: Biomedical Sciences Graduate Program, 2011, University of New Mexico

While the functional disconnectivity hypothesis of schizophrenia has been the subject of much study, very little is known about the contribution of individual genotypes to connectivity between brain regions in either schizophrenia patients or in healthy controls. In this study, we obtained diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) maps and genome-wide SNP data from 74 cases and 87 age- and gender-matched controls. Correlations were performed between loading coefficients obtained from fractional anisotropy (FA) values in networks of regions representing 6 maximally independent components and 134 SNPs in genes that have been found to be important in myelination and/or schizophrenia. By using independent component analysis (ICA) to analyze the FA data we move beyond single voxels (voxel based morphometry) to a source based morphometry. In doing so, we can obtain networks of FA values that covary in a similar way among subjects, and we can study the relationship between these networks and genotype. We report one SNP located in the intronic region of the metabotropic glutamate receptor 3 gene GRM3 that showed a significant correlation with connectivity in patients but not in controls (p<1.0x10-4). This SNP, rs7808623, has not been previously shown to be associated with schizophrenia, although association has been shown with several SNPs in GRM3.
