    • The 2014-2016 Ebola Epidemic in West Africa. How did cultural factors contribute to an escalation of the outbreak? 

      Granerud, Hannah Skjellet (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-06-04)
      Background The 2014-2016 Ebola epidemic is the biggest known outbreak since 1976. The transmission from a bush animal to one human eventually caused 28 652 cases and 11 325 deaths. It is necessary to investigate how one case could cause that many infected people and deaths, and this study aims to identify the most important cultural factors that contributed to these high numbers. Method This ...
    • 24 timers posisjonering for barn med spastisk quadriplegi. Et foreldreperspektiv 

      Henninen, Anita Pettersen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2010-05-12)
      Studien er en kvalitativ undersøkelse og et kvalitativt forskningsintervju er benyttet som metode i tilvirkningen av data. Undersøkelsen har fokus mot foreldres erfaringer ved å skulle gjennomføre 24 timers posisjonering, inkludert tilpasset sovesystem på natten, for eget barn. Det er relativt lite erfaring her i Norge med å tenke posisjonering hele døgnet for barn med store bevegelsesvansker, og ...
    • 3-Weeks of Exercise Training Increases Ischemic-Tolerance in Hearts From High-Fat Diet Fed Mice 

      Boardman, Neoma Tove; Rossvoll, Line; Lund, Jim; Hafstad, Anne Dragøy; Aasum, Ellen (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-02)
      Physical activity is an efficient strategy to delay development of obesity and insulin resistance, and thus the progression of obesity/diabetes-related cardiomyopathy. In support of this, experimental studies using animal models of obesity show that chronic exercise prevents the development of obesity-induced cardiac dysfunction (cardiomyopathy). Whether exercise also improves the tolerance to ...
    • 3T3 cell lines stably expressing Pax6 or Pax6(5a): a new tool used for identification of common and isoform specific target genes. 

      Kiselev, Yury; Eriksen, Tonje Engevik; Forsdahl, Siri; Nguyen, Lan Huong Thi; Mikkola, Ingvild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Pax6 and Pax6(5a) are two isoforms of the evolutionary conserved Pax6 gene often co-expressed in specific stochiometric relationship in the brain and the eye during development. The Pax6(5a) protein differs from Pax6 by having a 14 amino acid insert in the paired domain, causing the two proteins to have different DNA binding specificities. Difference in functions during development is proven by the ...
    • A 4-Week Intervention Involving Mobile-Based Daily 6-Minute Micro-Sessions of Functional High-Intensity Circuit Training Improves Strength and Quality of Life, but Not Cardio-Respiratory Fitness of Young Untrained Adults 

      Sperlich, Billy; Hahn, Lea-Sofie; Edel, Antonia; Behr, Tino; Helmprobst, Julian; Leppich, Robert; Wallmann-Sperlich, Birgit; Holmberg, Hans-Christer (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-09)
      The present study was designed to assess the psycho-physiological responses of physically untrained individuals to mobile-based multi-stimulating, circuit-like, multiplejoint conditioning (Circuit<sub>HIIT</sub>) performed either once (1xCircuit<sub>HIIT</sub>) or twice (2xCircuit<sub>HIIT</sub>) daily for 4 weeks. In this single-center, two-arm randomized, controlled study, 24 men and women (age: ...
    • A 4-year follow-up of patients with medication-overuse headache previously included in a randomized multicentre study. 

      Salvesen, Rolf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The aim of this study was to evaluate the longterm outcome in 61 patients with medication-overuse headache (MOH) who 4 years previously had been included in a randomized open-label prospective multicentre study. Sixty patients still alive after 4 years were invited to a follow-up investigation. Fifty patients (83%) participated. Sixteen visited a neurologist, 22 were interviewed through telephone, ...
    • The 5-HT1E receptor. Receptor structure and ligand interactions. 

      Gabrielsen, Mari (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2006-12-08)
      5-HT (5-Hydroxytryptamine; Serotonin) is the neurotransmitter with the highest number of known receptors in humans, and the importance of 5-HT is also reflected in the number of species using 5-HT as a signalling molecule and the number of 5-HT receptors found within each species. 15 human 5-HT receptors have at this date been characterised and classified into seven 5-HT receptor families. Six of ...
    • 5-type HPV mRNA versus 14-type HPV DNA test: test performance, over-diagnosis and overtreatment in triage of women with minor cervical lesions 

      Westre, Bjørn; Giske, Anita; Guttormsen, Hilde; Sørbye, Sveinung Wergeland; Skjeldestad, Finn Egil (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-06-07)

    • ABC-transportørenes kliniske betydning 

      Bremnes, Thomas (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-06-02)
      Multi-legemiddelresistens (multidrug resistance, MDR) er resistens mot flere strukturelt uavhengige kjemoterapimidler. Dette er spesielt ett problem for behandling av kreft fordi kreftceller kan danne resistens mot flere midler samtidig. Slik resistens utvikles ved hjelp av flere cellulære mekanismer. Den mest undersøkte og oftest assosierte metoden er via økt uttrykk av ATP-bindende kassett ...
    • ABC-transportører 

      Slåtsve, Arne Martin (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2009-09-15)
      ABC (ATP-binding cassette)-transportører er store, evolusjonsmessig høykonserverte membranproteiner som er påvist i alle arter fra prokaryoter til komplekse organismer. ABC-transportørene muliggjør energiavhengig transport av spesifikke substrater gjennom cellemembraner. Blant substratene vi kjenner er lipider, karbohydrater, peptider, vitaminer, steroidhormoner, xenobiotika og medikamenter. ...
    • Abdominal aortic aneurysms, or a relatively large diameter of non-aneurysmal aortas, increase total and cardiovascular mortality: the Tromsø study. 

      Forsdahl, Signe Helene; Solberg, Steinar; Singh, Kulbir; Jacobsen, Bjarne Koster (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2010)
      Background: In a population-based study in Tromsø, Norway, the authors assessed whether an abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) or the maximal infrarenal aortic diameter in a non-aneurismal aorta influence total and cardiovascular disease (CVD) mortality. Methods: A total of 6640 men and women, aged 25–84 years, were included in a 10-year mortality follow-up: 345 subjects with a diagnosed AAA and ...

    • Absentee rates in physical education in high schools: The importance of gender and study programmes 

      Lagestad, Pål Arild; Welde, Boye; Rånes, Vebjørn; Myhre, Hege (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-02)
      Little is known about absenteeism in high school physical education (PE) in relation to study programme and gender. This study investigated the impact of gender and study programme on absentee rates in PE by analyzing data, using non-parametric statistical analyses, from the absentee registers for all 6928 students in Nordland Country. The results showed that the absentee rates in PE differed among ...

      Dyrkorn, Roar; Langaas, Harald Chr.; Giverhaug, Trude; Espnes, Ketil Arne; Rowett, Debra; Spigset, Olav (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      <i>Introduction</i>: Academic detailing is an interactive educational outreach to prescribers to present unbiased, non-commercial, evidence-based information, mostly about medications, with the goal of improving patient care. Academic detailing in Norway is an approach for providing continuing medical education to general practitioners (GPs). The basis of academic detailing is a one-to-one discussion ...
    • Academic performance and student dropout. Results from two studies in upper secondary and higher education in Northern Norway 

      Sæle, Rannveig Grøm (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2016-08-19)
      Education is important for the individual and for society. One of the most important and stable predictors of educational dropout is academic performance, typically measured by grades. This thesis aims to investigate factors related to academic performance and student dropout. It comprises two projects. The first project, Young Will (Ung vilje), is based on a sample of adolescents entering upper ...
