Omsorg for den samfunnsnyttige kroppen
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010)
Den franske filosofen Michel Foucault argumenterte for at ein har styrt moderne samfunn ved hjelp av samankoplingar mellom kroppslege praksisar og vitskap. Denne styringsforma kalla han disiplinering. I denne artikkelen argumenterer me for at den politiske argumentasjonen i siste halvdel av 1800-talet og starten av 1900-talet, om å legge om frå folkeleg til borgarleg reinsemd, kan ha vore ein lekk ...

(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-12-07)
<p><i>Importance</i>: Fragility fracture is a major health issue because of the accompanying morbidity, mortality, and financial cost. Despite the high cost to society and personal cost to affected individuals, secondary fracture prevention is suboptimal in Norway, mainly because most patients with osteoporotic fractures do not receive treatment with antiosteoporotic drugs after fracture ...
The alternative complement pathway is dysregulated in patients with chronic heart failure
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-02-14)
The complement system, an important arm of the innate immune system, is activated in heart failure (HF). We hypothesized that HF patients are characterized by an imbalance of alternative amplification loop components; including properdin and complement factor D and the alternative pathway inhibitor factor H. These components and the activation product, terminal complement complex (TCC), were measured ...
