• Biogenic silica production and diatom dynamics in the Svalbard region during spring 

    Krause, J. W.; Duarte, Carlos M.; Marquez, I. A.; Assmy, Phillipp; Fernández-Méndez, Mar; Wiedmann, Ingrid; Wassmann, Paul; Kristiansen, Svein; Agusti, Susana (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-06)
    Diatoms are generally the dominant contributors to the Arctic Ocean spring bloom, which is a key event in regional food webs in terms of capacity for secondary production and organic matter export. Dissolved silicic acid is an obligate nutrient for diatoms and has been declining in the European Arctic since the early 1990s. The lack of regional silicon cycling information precludes understanding the ...
  • In search of a common currency: A comparison of seven EQ‐5D‐5L value sets 

    Olsen, Jan Abel; Lamu, Admassu Nadew; Cairns, John (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-24)
    The recently published EQ‐5D‐5L value sets from Canada, England, Japan, Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, and Uruguay are compared with an aim to identify any similarities in preference pattern. We identify some striking similarities for Canada, England, the Netherlands, and Spain in terms of (a) the relative importance of the 5 dimensions; (b) the relative utility decrements across the 5 levels; and ...
  • Live-cell imaging of human spermatozoa using structured illumination microscopy 

    Opstad, Ida Sundvor; Popova, Daria; Acharya, Ganesh; Basnet, Purusotam; Ahluwalia, Balpreet Singh (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-05)
    Structural details of spermatozoa are interesting from the perspectives of fundamental biology and growing reproductive health problems. Studies of nanostructural details of these extremely motile cells have been limited to fixed cells, largely using electron microscopy. Here we provide the protocols for and demonstrate live-cell multi-color super-resolution imaging of human spermatozoa using ...
  • Teamwork in primary palliative care: general practitioners’ and specialised oncology nurses’ complementary competencies 

    Johansen, May-Lill; Ervik, Bente (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-21)
    <p><i>Background</i>: Generalists such as general practitioners and district nurses have been the main actors in community palliative care in Norway. Specialised oncology nurses with postgraduate palliative training are increasingly becoming involved. There is little research on their contribution. This study explores how general practitioners (GPs) and oncology nurses (ONs) experience their ...
  • Patterns of detectable viraemia among children and adults with HIV infection taking antiretroviral therapy in Zimbabwe 

    Sovershaeva, Evgeniya; Shamu, Tinei; Wilsgaard, Tom; Bandason, Tsitsi; Flægstad, Trond; Katzenstein, David; Ferrand, Rashida A.; Odland, Jon Øyvind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-31)
    <i>Objective</i>: To investigate the incidence and predictors of viraemia among individuals on antiretroviral therapy (ART) in Harare, Zimbabwe.<p> <p><i>Methods</i>: Children (0–19 years) and adults (>19 years) starting ART between 2013 and 2015 were followed for a median of 2.8 and 2.7 years, respectively. The incidence rates of virological failure (VF), low-level viraemia (LLV), and viral ...
