  • Impact of Osteoporotic Fracture Type and Subsequent Fracture on Mortality: The Tromsø Study 

    Alarkawi, Dunia; Bluic, Dana; Tran, T; Ahmed, Luai A; Emaus, Nina; Bjørnerem, Åshild; Jørgensen, Lone; Cristoffersen, T.; Eisman, JA; Center, JR (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-26)
    <i>Summary</i> - Less is known about the impact of non-hip non-vertebral fractures (NHNV) on early death. This study demonstrated increased risk of dying following hip and NHNV fractures which was further increased by a subsequent fracture. This highlights the importance of early intervention to prevent both initial and subsequent fractures and improve survival.<p> <p><i>Introduction</i> - ...
  • Microbial risk factors for treatment failure of pivmecillinam in community‐acquired urinary tract infections caused by ESBL‐producing Escherichia coli 

    Syre, Heidi; Hetland, Marit; Bernhoff, Eva; Bollestad, Marianne; Grude, Nils; Simonsen, Gunnar Skov; Löhr, Iren Høyland (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-22)
    The aim of this study was to identify microbial risk factors for treatment failure of pivmecillinam in community‐acquired urinary tract infections (ca‐UTIs) caused by ESBL‐producing Escherichia coli. Eighty‐nine ESBL‐producing E. coli isolated from women suffering from ca‐UTIs were included. The susceptibilities to mecillinam were determined using MIC gradient strip. Whole genome sequencing was ...
  • A mixture frailty model for maintainability analysis of mechanical components: a case study 

    Zaki, Rezgar; Barabadi, Abbas; Garmabaki, Amir Hossein Soleiman; Nuri, Ali (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-07)
    Knowing the maintainability of a component or a system means that repair resource allocations, such as spare part procurement and maintenance training, can be planned and optimized more effectively. Repair data are often collected from multiple and distributed units in different operational conditions, which can introduce heterogeneity into the data. Part of such heterogeneity can be explained and ...
  • Exploring the pangenome of Staphylococcus haemolyticus. Colonisation, hospital adaption, pathogenicity and novel species identification 

    Pain, Maria Charlene Ronessen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-04-03)
    Staphylococcus haemolyticus is a ubiquitous bacterium recognised as a significant cause of nosocomial infections. Today it represents one of the most clinically relevant staphylococcal species, hallmarked by its extreme genome plasticity and multiresistant phenotype. Despite its relevance, little is known about its virulence repertoire or how it causes disease. The main objective of this PhD thesis ...
  • Gothic Infections: Henry Tilney and Storytelling as Therapy 

    Mikalsen, Paula (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
    This article proposes, a reading of Jane Austen’s Northanger Abbey (1818) as a case study for discussing infectious literature, storytelling as therapy and the interconnectedness of Gothic methodologies and medical humanities. Northanger Abbey was written in a period when women’s reading habits was a contested topic, so I will provide a quick historical overview of the period and the problematic ...
