  • Kan det finnes kime til livsmot i forskningssamtaler med etterlatte pårørende, der sorg danner bakteppe? 

    Lind, Ranveig (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-25)
    This essay deals with conducting research interviews with the relatives of deceased ICU patients, where grief is a fundamental element. Based on the underlying profound seriousness of these conversations, the term “interview” is discarded in order to emphasize their relational aspect. Care and consideration to maintain dignity is shaped by these research conversations. The relationship between ...

    Hardersen, Randolf Inge; Enebakk, Terje; Christiansen, Dorte; Ludviksen, Judith K; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Lappegård, Knut Tore; Hovland, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-29)
    <i>Introduction</i> - Even if proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 inhibitors have replaced lipoprotein apheresis in many patients, lipoprotein apheresis still is an important option in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, progressive atherosclerosis or when removal of lipoprotein(a) is indicated. Additional possible favorable effects beyond lipid lowering could include changes in ...
  • Evidence for limited adaptive responsiveness to large-scale spatial variation of habitat quality 

    Werner, Karl-Michael; Taylor, Marc; Diekmann, Rabea; Lloret, Josep; Möllmann, Christian; Primicerio, Raul; Fock, Heino O. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-24)
    The ability of organisms to adapt their foraging behaviour to spatial variations in food availability and habitat quality is crucial to maximize energy intake and hence fitness. Under ideal conditions, habitat selection should result in a spatial distribution of individuals such that their fitness (energy reserves or condition) is roughly equal across habitats of varying quality. Using 11 yr of field ...
  • A population-based study of inflammatory mechanisms and pain sensitivity 

    Schistad, Ellina Iordanova; Kong, Xiang Yi; Furberg, Anne-Sofie; Bäckryd, Emmanuel; Grimnes, Guri; Emaus, Nina; Rosseland, Leiv Arne; Gordh, Torsten; Stubhaug, Audun; Engdahl, Bo Lars; Halvorsen, Bente Evy; Nielsen, Christopher Sivert (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-21)
    Two recent studies suggest that experimental pain sensitivity is associated with low-grade systemic inflammation. However, only 2 biomarkers have been identified, and the studies were conducted in adult individuals where confounding effects of comorbid diseases cannot be excluded. We therefore tested associations between pain sensitivity and 119 inflammation-related serum biomarkers in 827 healthy ...

    Children vary in the extent to which they benefit from parenting programs for conduct problems. How does parental mental health change if children benefit less or more? We assessed whether changes in conduct problems and maternal depressive symptoms co-occur following participation in the Incredible Years parenting program. We integrated individual participant data from 10 randomized trials (<i>N</i> ...
  • Triggers and risk factors of first and recurrent venous thromboembolism 

    Bjøri, Esben (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-01-29)
    Venous thromboembolism (VTE), encompassing both deep vein thrombosis and pulmonary embolism, is a major public health concern due to substantial morbidity and mortality. Around half of all VTE cases are hospital-related. Importantly, VTE also has life-long implications, as a large proportion of VTE-patients suffer either a recurrent event or chronic complications. The first aim of the thesis was to ...

    Psoriasis (skin psoriasis, PsO) is a chronic inflammatory condition. In about one-third of cases, the joints are affected (psoriatic arthritis, PsA). Both conditions, especially PsA, profoundly impact patients’ health-related quality of life (HRQoL). To describe the impact of psoriasis on HRQoL and patients’ contact with the healthcare system in Sweden, Denmark, and Norway, the NORdic PAtient survey ...
  • TRIM proteins in autophagy: A study of TRIM32 and TRIM27 

    Stange Overå, Katrine (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-02-02)
    <p>TRIM proteins are ubiquitin E3 ligases known to be involved in a number of different processes in the cells, such as intracellular signaling, transcription, autophagy, innate immunity, cell cycle progression and DNA repair. Mutations and dysregulation of TRIM proteins are implicated in many diseases, and a number of TRIMs are described as both tumor suppressors and oncogenes. Furthermore, several ...
  • Forholdet mellom aksept av voldtektsmyter og skyldfordeling etter et overgrep 

    Olsen, Maria; Revang, Kristine Skogen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-02)
    Formålet til denne studien var å undersøke sammenhengen mellom aksept av voldtektsmyter (Rape Myth Acceptance, RMA) og hvordan man fordeler skyld mellom offer og overgriper i fiktive overgrepsscenario. For å måle aksept av voldtektsmyter brukte vi “Acceptance of Modern Myths about Sexual Aggression (AMMSA)”, utviklet av Gerger, Kley, Bohner og Siebler (2007), oversatt og validert til norsk av ...
  • Perioperative infusion of glucagon-like peptide-1 prevents insulin resistance after surgical trauma in female pigs 

    Hagve, Martin Iversen; Gjessing, Petter Fosse; Hole, Mikal Jacob; Jansen, Kirsten M; Fuskevåg, Ole Martin; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Larsen, Terje S; Irtun, Øivind (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-07)
    Insulin resistance is an independent negative predictor of outcome after elective surgery and increases mortality among surgical patients in intensive care. The incretin hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) potentiates glucose-induced insulin release from the pancreas but may also increase insulin sensitivity in skeletal muscle and directly suppress hepatic glucose release. Here, we investigated ...
