    The Greenland Ice Sheet is currently not accounted for in Arctic mercury budgets, despite large and increasing annual runoff to the ocean and the socio-economic concerns of high mercury levels in Arctic organisms. Here we present concentrations of mercury in meltwaters from three glacial catchments on the southwestern margin of the Greenland Ice Sheet and evaluate the export of mercury to downstream ...
  • Short-term balance training and acute effects on postural sway in balance-deficient older adults: a randomized controlled trial 

    Sörlén, Niklas; Hult, Andreas; Nordström, Peter; Nordström, Anna; Johansson, Jonas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-09)
    <p>Background: We aimed to determine the effectiveness of 4 weeks of balance exercise compared with no intervention on objectively measured postural sway. <p>Methods: This was a single-center parallel randomized controlled, open label, trial. A six-sided dice was used for allocation at a 1:1-ratio between exercise and control. The trial was performed at a university hospital clinic in Sweden and ...
  • Can vertical separation of species in trawls be utilized to reduce bycatch in shrimp fisheries? 

    Larsen, Roger B.; Herrmann, Bent; Brcic, Jure; Sistiaga, Manu; Cerbule, Kristine; Nielsen, Kåre Nolde; Jacques, Nadine; Lomeli, Mark Joseph Max; Tokac, Adnan; Cuende, Elsa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-03-26)
    Several shrimp trawl fisheries use a Nordmöre sorting grid to avoid bycatch of fish. However, small fish can pass through the grid. Therefore, the retention of juvenile fish often remains an issue during shrimp trawling. We investigated the vertical distribution of deepwater shrimp (<i>Pandalus borealis</i>) and dominant bycatch species at the point where the Nordmöre grid section is installed. This ...
  • Factors associated with treatment in primary versus specialist care: A population-based study of people with type 2 and type 1 diabetes 

    Slåtsve, Kristina Barbara; Claudi, Tor; Lappegård, Knut Tore; Jenum, Anne Karen; Larsen, Marthe; Nøkleby, Kjersti; Cooper, John; Sandberg, Sverre; Berg, Tore Julsrud (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-04-08)
    <p>Aims: The objectives of this study are to identify the proportion and characteristics of people with type 1 and 2 diabetes treated in primary, specialist and shared care and to identify the proportion of persons with type 2 diabetes reaching HbA<sub>1c</sub> treatment targets and the clinical risk factors and general practitioner and practice characteristics associated with treatment in specialist ...
  • Level of education and HIV viral load suppression in a population under universal anti-retroviral therapy in eSwatini 

    Dlamini, Thembelihle Ntokozo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-31)
    <p>Introduction: HIV/AIDS continues to be amongst the leading causes of morbidity and mortality in Sub-Saharan Africa. There is no approved cure for HIV, but the disease can be managed using Anti-Retroviral Therapy (ART). If drug adherence of about 95% is achieved, odds for a better clinical outcome increase. The level of education as a marker for many socio- economic status indicators has an impact ...
