Adams, M. H., Lovejoy, T. I., Turk, D. C., Dobscha, S. K., Hauser, P., & Morasco, B. J. (2015). Pain-related anxiety
ABSTRACT: Depression and chronic pain are common in persons chronically infected with the hepatitis C virus (HCV), although little is known about the rate of co-occurrence or mechanisms by which they are associated. We evaluated whether pain-related anxiety affects the relationship between depressive symptoms and pain-related physical functioning in patients with hepatitis C virus (HCV).

ABSTRACT: Physical illness and disability are common in individuals with substance use disorders, but little is known about the impact of physical disability status on substance use treatment outcomes. This study examined the main and interactive effects of physical disability payment status on substance use treatment.

Daniels, L. R., Boehnlein, J. K., & McCallion, P. (2015). Life-review and PTSD community counseling with two groups
ABSTRACT: Vietnam War veterans are aging into their late 60s and early 70s. In spite of an increase in older treatment-seeking veterans, none of the recommended posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) psychotherapy techniques emerging within the past 3 decades includes integration of a life span perspective. In an effort to bridge the gap between posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and life span perspective interventions, this article describes an exploratory random-assignment, partial cross-over feasibility study that compared 2 different sequences of life review and posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) group therapies with 2 groups of Vietnam War veterans.
Daniels, L. R., Boehnlein, J., & McCallion, P. (2015). Aging, depression, and wisdom: A pilot study of life-review
ABSTRACT: Vietnam War veterans are a sometimes overlooked subgroup of the aging baby boomer generation. Forty years after the Vietnam War ended, Vietnam War veterans still seek out VA or Vet Center counselors to assist with traumatic stress symptoms. However, there currently are no specific age-related protocols for treating older war veterans suffering from posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), nor have established PTSD interventions incorporated gerontology content for these older trauma survivors. This pilot study juxtaposed life review within regular PTSD group counseling for 12 Vietnam veterans at a community-based Vet Center.

Dobscha, S. K., Morasco, B. J., Kovas, A. E., Peters, D. M., Hart, K., & McFarland, B. H. (2015). Short-term variability
ABSTRACT: The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) uses the 11-point pain numeric rating scale (NRS) to gather pain intensity information from veterans at outpatient appointments. Yet, little is known about how numeric rating scale (NRS) scores may vary over time within individuals; numeric rating scale (NRS) variability may have important ramifications for treatment planning. Our main objective was to describe variability in numeric rating scale (NRS) scores within a 1-month timeframe, as obtained during routine outpatient care in older patients with chronic pain treated in VA hospitals. A secondary objective was to explore for patient characteristics associated with within-month NRS score variability.

ABSTRACT: The Centrality of Pain Scale (COPS) is a recently developed patient-centered, 10-item self-report measure designed to assess how central, or dominating, in their lives individuals with chronic pain perceive pain to be. The Centrality of Pain Scale (COPS) underwent initial development and validation previously; preliminary results suggested that the measure had excellent psychometric properties and that Centrality of Pain Scale (COPS) scores were associated with important clinical factors.

ABSTRACT: The differential use of protein precursors and their products is a key strategy used during poliovirus replication. To characterize the role of protein precursors during replication, we examined the complementation profiles of mutants that inhibited 3D polymerase or 3C-RNA binding activity. We showed that 3D entered the replication complex in the form of its precursor, P3 (or 3CD), and was cleaved to release active 3D polymerase.
