• Low levels of immunoglobulins and mannose-binding lectin are not associated with etiology, severity, or outcome in community-acquired pneumonia 

    Siljan, William Ward; Nymo, Ståle Haugset; Husebye, Einar; Ueland, Thor; Skattum, Lillemor; Bosnes, Vidar; Garred, Peter; Frøland, Stig Sophus; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Aukrust, Pål; Heggelund, Lars (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-01-05)
    <p><i>Background - </i>Disease severity and outcome in community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) depend on the host and on the challenge of the causal microorganism(s). We measured levels of immunoglobulins (Igs) and complement in 257 hospitalized adults with CAP and examined the association of low levels of Igs or complement to microbial etiology, disease severity, and short-term and long-term ...
  • Outlier classification using autoencoders: Application for fluctuation driven flows in fusion plasmas 

    Kube, Ralph; Bianchi, Filippo Maria; LaBombard, Brian; Brunner, Dan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-16)
    Understanding the statistics of fluctuation driven flows in the boundary layer of magnetically confined plasmas is desired to accurately model the lifetime of the vacuum vessel components. Mirror Langmuir probes (MLPs) are a novel diagnostic that uniquely allow us to sample the plasma parameters on a time scale shorter than the characteristic time scale of their fluctuations. Sudden large-amplitude ...
  • Stereotype threat-effects for Turkish-origin migrants in Germany: Taking stock of cumulative research evidence 

    Froehlich, Laura; Mok, Sog Yee; Martiny, Sarah E.; Deaux, Kay (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-24)
    Turkish-origin migrants on average show lower academic performance than Germans. This achievement gap cannot be fully explained by socio-economic differences between the groups. Negative competence stereotypes about Turkish-origin students predict the causal attributions that German preservice teachers make for migrants’ academic underperformance. Specifically, the more strongly preservice teachers ...
  • Statistical properties of the plasma fluctuations and turbulent cross-field fluxes in the outboard mid-plane scrape-off layer of Alcator C-Mod 

    Kube, Ralph; Garcia, Odd Erik; Theodorsen, Audun; Kuang, Adam; LaBombard, Brian; Terry, Jim L.; Brunner, Dan (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-29)
    The Alcator C-Mod mirror Langmuir probe diagnostic is used to characterize plasma fluctuations in the outboard mid-plane scrape-off layer (SOL). Ohmically heated L-mode plasmas with Greenwald fractions from 0.1 to 0.45 are analyzed. In plasmas with a low line-averaged core density, the radial profiles of the average electron density and temperature feature a two-scale structure with a strong gradient ...
  • Effect of requiring a general practitioner at scenes of serious injury: A systematic review 

    Straumann, Gyri Synnøve Hval; Austvoll-Dahlgren, Astrid; Holte, Hilde H; Wisborg, Torben (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-05)
    <p><i>Background - </i>In Norway, each municipality is responsible for providing first line emergency healthcare, and it is mandatory to have a primary care physician/general practitioner on call continuously. This mandate ensures that a physician can assist patients and ambulance personnel at the site of severe injuries or illnesses. The compulsory presence of the general practitioner at the scene ...
