    Kirsebom, Bjørn-Eivind; Nordengen, Kaja; Selnes, Per; Waterloo, Knut; Torsetnes, Silje Bøen; Gísladóttir, Berglind; Brix, Britta; Vanmechelen, Eugeen; Bråthen, Geir; Hessen, Erik; Aarsland, Dag; Fladby, Tormod (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-10)
    <i>Introduction</i>: The cerebrospinal fluid neurogranin (Ng)/β-site amyloid precursor protein-cleaving enzyme 1 (BACE1) ratio may reflect synaptic affection resulting from reduced beta-amyloid (Aβ) clearance. We hypothesize that increased Ng/BACE1 ratio predicts the earliest cognitive decline in Alzheimer’s disease.<p> <p><i>Methods</i>: We compared Ng/BACE1 levels between cases with subjective ...

    <p>Background</i>: Cognitive assessment is essential in tracking disease progression in AD. Presently, cohorts including preclinical at-risk participants are recruited by different means, which may bias cognitive and clinical features. We compared recruitment strategies to levels of cognitive functioning.<p> <p><i>Objective</i>: We investigate recruitment source biases in self-referred and ...
  • Hvordan møte utfordringer for fastlegetjenesten i distriktene? 

    Gaski, Margrete; Abelsen, Birgit (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2018)
    En god fastlegetjeneste er viktig, ikke minst der det er lang avstand til sykehus. I Nord-Norge er avstandene store, og gjennomsnittlig reisetid fra de 87 kommunesentra i Nord-Norge til nærmeste sykehus er 2 timer og 6 minutter. I denne artikkelen beskriver vi fastlegetjenesten i Nord-Norge samtidig som vi fokuserer på sentrale utfordringer som gjelder rekruttering av fastleger, det å få fastleger ...
