Synopsis: 
This cross-sectional study explored and generated novel and useable estimates of association between variants within genes underlying the transmethylation and trans-sulphuration pathways and inter-individual phenotypic variation in sickle cell anaemia (HbSS).

Knowledge, Motivation and Barriers to Diabetes Control in Adults in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
330–3
Synopsis: 
This study suggested that inadequate knowledge, lack of perceived risk and lack of self-monitoring skills are barriers to glycaemic control. There is need for a collaborative team approach and the incorporation of diabetes education as an indispensable service.

Dietary Intake of Choline and Plasma Choline Concentrations in Pregnant Women in Jamaica

Issue: 
Pages: 
355–9
Synopsis: 
We examined the plasma choline concentration of sixteen women attending the antenatal clinic of the University Hospital of the West Indies and found that their fasting choline concentrations were low to normal. This may be a reflection of low choline dietary intake.

Comparison of Techniques of Detecting Immunoglobulin-binding Protein Reactivity to Immunoglobulin Produced by Different Avian and Mammalian Species

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2012.206
Pages: 
12–20
Synopsis: 
Several immunological assays can be used to investigate the reactivity of immunoglobulin binding protein (IBP) to immunoglobulins from various avian and mammalian species. The results of these assays suggest that IBP can be used for the detection of immunoglobulin and this is important for the diagnosis of infectious diseases in animal and bird populations and in the purification of immunoglobulins.
