    Skin cancer is one of the most common types of cancer. Skin cancers are classified as nonmelanoma and melanoma, with the first type being the most frequent and the second type being the most deadly. The key to effective treatment of skin cancer is early detection. With the recent increase of computational power, the number of algorithms to detect and classify skin lesions has increased. The overall ...
  • Geochemistry of sediment-hosted copper deposits and their environmental impact: A case study from the Nussir and Ulveryggen deposits, Repparfjord Tectonic Window, Northern Norway 

    Mun, Yulia (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2019-11-07)
    Modern growing economy and technology require metals. Therefore mining is an unavoidable process. Mining in its turn results in the production of large amounts of mine waste. This research is focused on one type of mine waste, mine tailings, formed after the processing of Cu-sulphides deposits. Acid mine drainage (AMD) is a consequence of the oxidation of sulphide-rich rocks and has a drastic impact ...
  • The carnitine-butyrobetaine-TMAO pathway after cardiac transplant: Impact on cardiac allograft vasculopathy and acute rejection 

    Trøseid, Marius; Mayerhofer, Christiane Caroline; Broch, Kaspar; Arora, Satish; Svardal, Asbjørn M.; Hov, Johannes Espolin Roksund; Andreassen, Arne K.; Gude, Einar; Karason, Kristjan; Dellgren, Gøran; Berge, Rolf Kristian; Gullestad, Lars; Aukrust, Pål; Ueland, Thor (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-19)
    <p><i>BACKGROUND - </i>Alterations in the partly microbiota-dependent carnitine–γ-butyrobetaine (γBB)–trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) pathway have been linked to the progression of heart failure and atherosclerotic disease. We evaluated if circulating γBB, TMAO, and their common precursors carnitine and trimethyllysine (TML) were dysregulated after heart transplantation and associated with development ...
  • Long-term ecological studies in northern lakes – challenges, experiences, and accomplishments

    We review three long‐term research programs performed over the last four decades on the ecology and management of oligotrophic lake systems with different fish communities at 69&deg; N in Norway. Through whole‐lake perturbation experiments, intensive culling of stunted fish removed 35 tons (1984–1991) of Arctic charr <i>Salvelinus alpinus</i> in Takvatn (15 km<sup>2</sup>) and 153 tons (1981–1983, ...
