The effect of high-dose vitamin D3 supplementation on bone mineral density in subjects with prediabetes (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-10-30)Purpose: Type 2 diabetes mellitus is associated with increased fracture risk and recent studies show crosstalk between bone and glucose metabolism. Few studies have investigated the effect of vitamin D supplementation on bone without additional calcium. In the present study, we aimed to determine whether a high dose of vitamin D3 could improve bone mass density (BMD) in prediabetic subjects. Methods: ...
Low-grade impairments in cognitive and kidney function in a healthy middle-aged general population: a cross-sectional study (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-10-28)Background: Although the relationship between manifest chronic kidney disease and reduced cognitive function is well established, limited data exists on GFR and cognitive function in the general population. Both the brain and kidneys have low-impedance vascular beds, rendering them susceptible to damage from pulsatile blood flow. An association between mildly reduced GFR and cognitive function in ...

The synthetic antimicrobial peptide LTX21 induces inflammatory responses in a human whole blood model and a murine peritoneum model (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-27)The global spread of antimicrobial resistance and the increasing number of immune‐compromised patients are major challenges in modern medicine. Targeting bacterial virulence or the human host immune system to increase host defence are important strategies in the search for novel antimicrobial drugs. We investigated the inflammatory response of the synthetic short antimicrobial peptide LTX21 in two ...
Ansvarlig reiseliv i spenningsfeltet vern og utbyggingsinteresser, -En studie av reiselivsutvikling i verdensarvområdet Vega (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-12-03)Intensjonen med denne oppgaven har vært å utforske hvordan ansvarlig reiseliv forhandles i en kommune med sterke verne – og utbyggerinteresser. For å belyse dette har fokuset vært å studere hvilke stedskvaliteter som vektlegges i forhold til vern, og hvordan disse forhandles i arbeidet med reiselivsutvikling. Det har også vært viktig å se på hvordan begrepet bærekraft artikuleres, samt hvordan verne ...
