  • The Use of Context Data in Elective Surgery Scheduling and Planning. A literature review 

    Knutsen, Marie (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-15)
    The aim of this thesis is to examine how the use of context data in scheduling tools can contribute to the reduction of elective surgery cancellations. A literature review, following the recommendations to systematic reviews, was conducted in order to gather information on what context data could be used to improve elective surgery scheduling, and how the use of these data could affect elective ...
  • Drug resistance and the functional role of microRNAs in neuroblastoma 

    Bhavsar, Swapnil Parashram (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-06-13)
    Neuroblastoma is the most common solid tumor in infants. Most of the children diagnosed above one year of age, shows metastatic disease and poor prognosis. Chemotherapy is one of the principle mode of treatment. However, resistance to drug represent a major clinical obstacle for the effective treatment of cancer. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are small, non-coding RNAs that regulate gene expression, ...

Eldre mennesker er en spesielt utsatt gruppe for bivirkninger og interaksjoner. Formålet med studien er å kartlegge bruk av kosttilskudd blant pasienter over 70 år, undersøke om ...
  • Isolation and Characterisation of Halogenated and Bioactive Compounds from Thalassospira sp. and Alteromonas sp. 

    Ali, Nadia Ghazi (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-15)
    Bacterial natural products have contributed with a large part of the bioactive compounds that lead to drugs, and the biggest portion of the marketed antibiotics are bacterial products or their derivatives. Marine bacteria are not yet investigated to the same extend as their terrestrial counterparts. Therefore, they are considered a promising source for novel bioactive metabolites for drug development, ...
