• Advection of Mesozooplankton Into the Northern Svalbard Shelf Region 

    Wassmann, Paul; Slagstad, Dag; Ellingsen, Ingrid H. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-14)
    The northern Svalbard shelf region is part of the Atlantic advective contiguous domain along which nutrients, phyto- and mesozooplankton are advected with Atlantic Water from the Norwegian Sea along the Norwegian shelf break and into the Arctic Ocean. By applying the SINMOD model, we investigated how much mesozooplankton may be advected into the northern Svalbard shelf region. We also compared this ...
  • Phagocytosis of live and dead Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus in human whole blood is markedly reduced by combined inhibition of C5aR1 and CD14 

    Skjeflo, Espen Waage; Christiansen, Dorte; Landsem, Anne; Stenvik, Jørgen; Woodruff, T. M.; Espevik, Terje; Nielsen, Erik Waage; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-05-15)
    <i>Background</i> - Sepsis is a dysregulated host response to infection. The aim of this study was to investigate the effects of complement- and CD14 inhibition on phagocytosis of live and dead Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria in human whole blood.<p> <p><i>Methods</i> - Lepirudin-anticoagulated blood was incubated with live or dead <i>E. coli</i> or <i>S. aureus</i> at 37 °C for 120 min ...
  • Research involving older persons with dementia; ethical considerations 

    Drageset, Ingrid Marie Saga (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-09-04)
    In a research project where ten persons with dementia and their close families participated, the researcher explored how older people suffering from dementia could live meaningful lives. The aim of this article is to discuss some ethical considerations when persons with dementia are included in research, and to emphasize how to ensure their integrity and dignity. The qualitative research project ...
  • Plasma levels of mannose-binding lectin and future risk of venous thromboembolism 

    Liang, Robin Amanda; Høiland, Ina Isabella; Ueland, Thor; Aukrust, Pål; Snir, Omri; Hindberg, Kristian; Brækkan, Sigrid Kufaas; Garred, Peter; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Hansen, John-Bjarne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-20)
    <i>Background</i> - Animal and observational studies have suggested a pathophysiological role for complement in venous thromboembolism (VTE), but the initiating mechanisms are unknown. Mannose‐binding lectin (MBL) bound to altered host cells leads to activation of the lectin complement pathway, and both high and low MBL levels have been implicated in the pathophysiology of cardiovascular ...
  • Empati hos medisinstudenter - en kartleggingsoversikt 

    Fladset, Linn Mari (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-08-20)
    Bakgrunn: Empati hos medisinstudenter er et populært tema innenfor medisinsk etikk, undervisning og sosiologi. Det spørres om empatien beholdes over terskelen til ferdigutdannede leger, og hvis ikke, i hvilken grad og om empati påvirkes. Hensikten med denne oppgaven var å se nærmere på forskningen omkring empati fra det siste tiåret, og sammenfatte resultater med ulike funn og ulike aspekter. Metode: ...
