Anxiety disorders in African Americans: an update


, : Anxiety disorders in African Americans: an update. Journal of the National Medical Association 86(8): 609-612

This article discusses issues involved in the diagnosis of anxiety disorders, particularly panic disorder, in African Americans. Although epidemiological studies have shown similar prevalence rates of anxiety disorders among African Americans and non-African Americans, African Americans are underrepresented among those in treatment at mental health settings or serving as clinical research subjects. In addition, few studies have researched the unique demographic, diagnostic, and treatment characteristics of African-American patients with anxiety disorders. Most clinicians therefore are not educated to consider these issues in adapting their treatment approach to affect a more successful treatment outcome for African-American patients with anxiety disorder. This article identifies and addresses relevant cross-cultural issues.

Sawfly (Cephus cinctus Norton) is a major insect pest of wheat (Triticum spp.). The development of durum wheat (Triticum turgidum L. var durum) with stem solidness for resistance to sawfly is a strategy to minimize loss from this insect. This stud...

We described a case of splenic CD4 positive gamma/delta T-cell lymphoma with bone marrow involvement, and leukemic change in the terminal stage.

Several investigations showed increased levels of the soluble interleukin-2 receptor (sIL-2 R) in chronic and malignant diseases. A correlation between elevated sIL-2 R levels and disease activity or tumor size was observed in some patients. At pr...

Absorption and degradation of propoxur in multiple-resistant and susceptible strains of the green rice leafhopper were investigated using 14C-labeled propoxur. Amounts of propoxur in the outer part of the treated insects dropped rapidly in both st...

Many languages without separate terms for green and blue are or were spoken in locations receiving above-average exposure to ultraviolet-B (UV-B) radiation. It has been proposed that this correlation is caused by premature lens aging. This conclus...
