    The present work has a focus on biochemical characterization of the human matrix metalloproteinase-9. First part of the investigation focuses on the enzymes ability to form a complex with the small proteoglycan serglycin. Here the focus was on which amino acids and regions in both proMMP-9 and serglycin are important for the complex formation. For that, recombinant full-length proMMP-9 and various ...
  • Fruktene av "Lindring i nord" – nært samarbeid i en langstrakt landsdel

    <i>Mer enn 20 år tilbake, hadde vi en ung mann med alvorlig kreftsykdom og spredning til høyre lår. Han hadde forsøkt mange behandlinger med kun kortvarig effekt. Sykdommen ga han en rekke plager som smerter, gang- vansker og store ulcerasjoner som var en ekstra utfordring pleiemessig. <p> Pasienten var gift, han var småbarnsfar og egentlig fra et annet sted i landet, men bodde nå på finnmarkskysten, ...
  • The effect of faecal microbiota transplantation in irritabel bowel syndrom. A double blind, randomized placebo controlled single centre study 

    Johnsen, Peter Holger (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-04-17)
    Irritable bowel syndrome (IBS) is common disorder of the lower gastro intestinal tract associated with a poor quality of life. Revealing the interplay between the microbiota and the host has lead to a better understanding of IBS. A disturbance in the bidirectional communication in the microbiota-gut-brain axis is suggested to be involved in the pathophysiology of IBS. The microbiota in this context ...
  • Applying speech technologies to assess verbal memory in patients with serious mental illness 

    Holmlund, Terje Bektesevic; Chandler, Chelsea; Foltz, Peter W.; Cohen, Alex S.; Cheng, Jian; Bernstein, Jared C.; Rosenfeld, Elizabeth P.; Elvevåg, Brita (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-11)
    Verbal memory deficits are some of the most profound neurocognitive deficits associated with schizophrenia and serious mental illness in general. As yet, their measurement in clinical settings is limited to traditional tests that allow for limited administrations and require substantial resources to deploy and score. Therefore, we developed a digital ambulatory verbal memory test with automated ...

  • When Bodies Speak and Words Act - poetry, psychosomatic illness and the lost art of medicine 

    Goldbeck-Wood, Sandy (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-04-16)
    This is a discussion of what poetry has to do with medicine. It is about the psychological necessity and communicative purpose of art, with poetry as an example. It is about what poetry demands of the poet - humility, undogmatic diligence, resilience in the face of complexity, and the ability to think and feel at the same time. It is about a vital service poetry performs for poet and public which ...

    Body-mass index (BMI) has increased steadily in most countries in parallel with a rise in the proportion of the population who live in cities. This has led to a widely reported view that urbanization is one of the most important drivers of the global rise in obesity. Here we use 2,009 population-based studies, with measurements of height and weight in more than 112 million adults, to report national, ...

    Xie, Wei; Mondragon, Laura; Mauseth, Brynjar; Wang, Yan; Pol, Jonathan; Levesque, Sarah; Zhou, Heng; Yamazaki, Takahiro; Eksteen, Jacobus Johannes; Zitvogel, Laurence; Sveinbjørnsson, Baldur; Rekdal, Øystein; Kepp, Oliver; Kroemer, Guido (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-13)
    Local immunotherapies such as the intratumoral injection of oncolytic compounds aim at reinstating and enhancing systemic anticancer immune responses. LTX-315 is a first-in-class, clinically evaluated oncolytic peptide-based local immunotherapy that meets these criteria. Here, we show that LTX-401, yet another oncolytic compound designed for local immunotherapy, depicts a similar safety profile and ...
