  • Trained Innate Immunity of Fish Is a Viable Approach in Larval Aquaculture 

    Zhang, Zuobing; Chi, Heng; Dalmo, Roy Ambli (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-25)
    The general understanding has been that only adaptive immunity is capable of immunological memory, but this concept has been challenged in recent years by studies showing that innate immune systems can mount resistance to reinfection—as the innate immune system can adapt its function following an insult. Innate immune training offers an attractive approach in intensive fish larval rearing, especially ...
  • Paclitaxel-loaded biodegradable ROS-sensitive nanoparticles for cancer therapy 

    Pandya, Abhilash D.; Jäger, Eliézer; Fam, Shahla Bagheri; Höcherl, Anita; Jäger, Alessandro; Sincari, Vladimir; Nyström, Bo; Štěpánek, Petr; Skotland, Tore; Sandvig, Kirsten; Hrubý, Martin; Mælandsmo, Gunhild M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-06)
    <i>Background</i>: Reactive oxygen species (ROS), such as hydrogen peroxide and superoxide, trigger biodegradation of polymer-based nanoparticles (NPs) bearing pinacol-type boronic ester groups. These NPs may selectively release their cargo, in this case paclitaxel (PTX), at the high levels of ROS present in the intracellular environment of inflamed tissues and most tumors.<p> <p><i>Purpose</i>: ...
  • Identifying decisions in optometry: A validation study of the decision identification and classification taxonomy for use in medicine (DICTUM) in optometric consultations 

    Sundling, Vibeke; Stene, Hege Anita; Eide, Hilde; Ofstad, Eirik Hugaas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-02-18)
    <i>Objective</i> - The aim of this study was to assess the validity and reliability of the Decision Identification and Classification Taxonomy for Use in Medicine (DICTUM) applied to optometry, to compare decisions in medical and optometric consultations, and to describe decisions in optometry. <p> <p><i>Methods</i> - The study had a cross-sectional design. Data was collected from January to ...
  • Performance and Design Study of Optimized LNG Mixed Fluid Cascade Processes 

    Brodal, Eivind; Jackson, Steven; Eiksund, Oddmar (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-26)
    Mixed Fluid Cascade (MFC) processes are often claimed to be one of the most efficient methods to liquefy natural gas. Their performance depends on both operating conditions such as ambient temperature, and system design parameters such as exchanger sizes. The performance of the standard MFC process can be further improved by modifying the design with additional equipment, such as liquid refrigerant ...
  • A first fecundity study of the female snow crab Chionoecetes opilio Fabricius, 1788 (Decapoda: Brachyura: Oregoniidae) of the newly established population in the Barents Sea 

    Danielsen, Hanna Ellerine Helle; Hjelset, Ann Merete; Bluhm, Bodil; Hvingel, Carsten; Agnalt, Ann-Lisbeth (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-11)
    The snow crab <i>Chionoecetes opilio</i> Fabricius, 1788 is a newly established species in the Barents Sea. Since the first individuals were recorded in 1996, the population has increased and a fishery was initiated in 2012. Mature female snow crab caught in the central Barents Sea were investigated with regards to fecundity. Ovigerous females (<i>N</i> = 185) ranged from 48 to 100 mm carapace width ...
