Risk factors for drug resistant TB in British Columbia

Akm Moniruzzaman
Objectives: A) To investigate the epidemiological risk factors associated with resistance to antituberculosis drugs in British Columbia B) To determine if there are differences in risk factor characteristics among different categories of drug resistant (mono-drug, poly and multi-drug resistance) TB cases. Methods: The study was carried out in two phases. The first phase of the study was retrospective in design. The data examined in this study was collected by the division of TB control of...

A cultural interpretation of the Genocide Convention

Kurt Mundorff
In 1948, a mere four years after Raphael Lemkin coined the word “genocide,” the UN General Assembly codified his concept in the Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide (Genocide Convention). Over time, the definition of genocide has become increasingly estranged from the concept originated by Lemkin and adopted by the UN. This dissertation critiques the prevailing materialist interpretation of the Genocide Convention, which originated in a 1996 commentary by the...

Use of estimates of ribonucleic acid to predict the growth rates of zooplanktonic organisms.

Alan Kingsley Pease
The concentration of RNA (Schneider procedure, 1945) and the dry weight of the developing stages of the brine shrimp Artemia salina were measured during the first 63 days of growth of the organism in the laboratory; RNA and the dry weight of starved stage V Calanus plumchrus were followed for 20 days. The same techniques were applied to the developmental stages of several species of zooplankton obtained during the course of one year from Saanich...

The role of complement in the immunological demyelination of the adult rat spinal cord

Jason Alain Bourque
Previous work in Dr. John Steeves' laboratory has described a transient, myelinspecific, galactocerebroside (GalC) antibody-mediated, complement-dependent protocol that suppresses the onset of myelination in embryonic birds, and focally demyelinates the central nervous system (CNS) of adult birds and rodents after intraspinal infusion. After spinal injury, this procedure has been observed to facilitate axonal regeneration, often with accompanying recovery of behavior. In order to identify the relative necessity of different complement proteins in this protocol, I...

Cariboo Sentinel

The Cariboo Sentinel was published in Barkerville, in the Cariboo region of central British Columbia, and ran from June 1865 to October 1875. At the time, Barkerville was home to a fast-growing community of miners who had been attracted to the Cariboo region by the discovery of gold. The Sentinel was published by George Wallace, and its stated objective was not only to disseminate ���mining intelligence,��� but also to eradicate ���official abuse[s]��� of power, both...

Understanding the advent of information technology in teaching at the university : a case study of the University of British Columbia

Reginald Nnazor
This study investigated the use of interactive information technology in teaching at the University of British Columbia in early 1997, the factors influencing it, and the changes in the University associated with it. The use of interactive information technology in on- campus and distance education at UBC is largely limited to E-mail, World Wide Web, and to a lesser extent, CD-ROM. It seems to be a relatively recent development, the number of users of technology...

Metlahkatlah. Ten years' work among the Tsimsheean Indians

"A first edition probably appeared in 1868 (see entry [I-]585). The fourth edition appeared in 1871 under title: The British Columbia mission; or, Metlahkatlah; half title: MetlahkatIah; or, Ten years' work among the Tsimsheean Indians of British Columbia. What is possibly a third edition is listed by Annie Harvie Foster in her typescript British Columbia author's index (p. 11) under title: The Gospel in the far west Metlakatla; ten years work among the Tsimshean (not...

An evaluation of metal transport from shoulder highway sections into roadside soils due to atmospheric and runoff processes

Humberto Feliciano Preciado Cervantes
A comprehensive study of the migration pathways that contribute to the dispersal, accumulation and mobility of metals (Cu, Fe, Pb, Mn, and Zn) in roadside soils was performed at two highway sites with similar design, but different environmental, traffic and land use characteristics. Samples were collected from multiple media, which included: road sediment, atmospheric dustfall, atmospheric suspended particulates, stormwater runoff and roadside soils. Total metal concentrations, as well as the relative metal partitioning in different...

A 43mW single-channel 4GS/s 4-bit flash ADC IN 0.18um CMOS

Samad Sheikhaei
The continued speed improvement of serial links and appearance of new communication technologies, such as ultra wideband (UWB), have introduced increasing demands on the speed and power specifications of high speed low to medium resolution analog to digital converters (ADCs). While multi channel ADCs can achieve high speeds, they often require extensive and costly post fabrication calibration. A single channel 4 bit flash ADC, suitable for abovementioned or similar applications, implemented entirely using current mode...

Stereoselective HPLC analysis, pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution and pharmacodynamics of mexiletine enantiomers

Linus Nnamdi Igwemezie
Mexiletine [(2',6'-dimethylphenoxy)-2-amino propane] is a class 1 antiarrhythmic agent with a similar chemical structure and electrophysiological effects to those of lidocaine. It is a chiral drug which is used clinically in the racemic form (i.e. 50:50 ratio of two enantiomers). This thesis describes the stereoselective HPLC analysis, pharmacokinetics, tissue distribution and pharmacodynamics of mexiletine enantiomers. The development of a highly sensitive and stereoselective HPLC assay for mexiletine enantiomers, using 2-anthroyl chloride as a derivatization reagent,...
