  • Non-linear optical microscopy as a novel quantitative and label-free imaging modality to improve the assessment of tissue-engineered cartilage 

    Martinez, Inigo Zubiavrre; Islam, Ashraful; Elisabeth, Romijn; Lilledahl, Magnus Borstad (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10)
    Objective: <br>Current systems to evaluate outcomes from tissue-engineered cartilage (TEC) are sub-optimal. The main purpose of our study was to demonstrate the use of second harmonic generation (SHG) microscopy as a novel quantitative approach to assess collagen deposition in laboratory made cartilage constructs. <br>Methods: <br>Scaffold-free cartilage constructs were obtained by condensation ...
  • The impact of submarine copper mine tailing disposal from the 1970s on Repparfjorden, northern Norway 

    Sternal, Beata; Junttila, Juho; Skirbekk, Kari; Forwick, Matthias; Carroll, JoLynn; Pedersen, Kristine Bondo (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-05-10)
    We investigate the state of sedimentological environment and contaminant status of Repparfjorden (N Norway) impacted by submarine disposal of mine tailings during the 1970s using sedimentological and geochemical properties of seventeen sediment cores. The impact of tailings disposal is mainly restricted to the inner fjord where the discharge occurred. Sediment cores retrieved from the inner fjord ...
  • Catch Efficiency of Groundgears in a Bottom Trawl Fishery: A Case Study of the Barents Sea Haddock 

    Larsen, Roger B.; Herrmann, Bent; Brinkhof, Jesse; Grimaldo, Eduardo; Sistiaga, Manu Berrondo; Tatone, Ivan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-10)
    The catch efficiency of two types of groundgear—a conventional rockhopper and a new type of groundgear called the semicircular spreading gear (SCSG)—was investigated through experimental fishing for Haddock Melanogrammus aeglefinus conducted in the Barents Sea. A retainer bag was attached behind the footrope of the trawl, and the number of fish that were overrun by the trawl was compared with the ...
  • Do frequency of visits with birth parents impact children’s mental health and parental stress in stable foster care settings 

    Fossum, Sturla; Vis, Svein Arild Myhra; Holtan, Amy (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-13)
    This article explores whether the number of visits by birth parents influence perceptions of attachment, children’s competence and mental health, and stress levels in foster parents. Foster parents acted as informants regarding 203 children living in kinship and non-kinship foster care. The children were young when placed in foster care, on average 2.3 years old (SD = 1.0) and had been living in the ...
  • Violence and child mental health in Brazil: The Itaboraí Youth Study methods and findings 

    Bordin, Isabel AS; Duarte, Cristiane S.; Ribeiro, W.S.; Paula, C.S.; Coutinho, Evandro Silva Freire; Sourander, A; Rønning, John Andreas (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-17)
    <p><i>Objectives</i>: To demonstrate a study design that could be useful in low‐resource and violent urban settings and to estimate the prevalence of child violence exposure (at home, community, and school) and child mental health problems in a low‐income medium‐size city.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: The Itaboraí Youth Study is a Norway–Brazil collaborative longitudinal study conducted in Itaboraí ...
