    • Acceptance and commitment theraphy og kroniske smerter i allmennpraksis 

      Pettersen, Kristian (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-06-02)
      Kronisk smerte er definert som smerte med varighet på 6 måneder eller mer. Kortvarig smerte behandles vanligvis med medikamentell smertelindring, mens en tverrfaglig tilnærming til kroniske smerter har best effekt. Den tverrfaglige behandlingen skjer oftest ved smerteklinikker, og består av ulike former for Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT). De senere årene har det kommet en ny bølge av psykoterapeutiske ...
    • Accidental hypothermia - A review on the underlying physiological and pathophysiological mechanisms and treatment of accidental hypothermia 

      Håheim, Brage (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-06-01)
      Accidental hypothermia is a rare condition with few deaths per year, but hypothermic patients have a 30% chance of dying. The past 15-20 years there has been an increased understanding of how hypothermia affects human physiology and may cause life-threatening conditions like arrhythmias, cardiovascular shock and pulmonary edema. New understanding of underlying mechanisms of hypothermia- induced ...

      Eliassen, Bent-Martin; Braaten, Tonje; Melhus, Marita; Hansen, Ketil Lenert; Broderstad, Ann Ragnhild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Acculturation is for indigenous peoples related to the process of colonisation over centuries as well as the on-going social transition experienced in the Arctic today. Changing living conditions and lifestyle affect health in numerous ways in Arctic indigenous populations. Self-rated health (SRH) is a relevant variable in primary health care and in general public health assessments and monitoring. ...
    • Accumulation of stable full-length circular group i intron RNAs during heat-shock 

      Andersen, Kasper L.; Beckert, Bertrand; Masquida, Benoît; Johansen, Steinar Daae; Nielsen, Henrik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-10-31)
      Group I introns in nuclear ribosomal RNA of eukaryotic microorganisms are processed by splicing or circularization. The latter results in formation of full-length circular introns without ligation of the exons and has been proposed to be active in intron mobility. We applied qRT-PCR to estimate the copy number of circular intron RNA from the myxomycete Didymium iridis . In ...

      People with acquired brain injury (PwABI) are usually hospitalized for emergency care and often require both specialist and primary healthcare long-term follow-up. Higher intensity rehabilitation featuring early intervention is recommended. This study investigated how implementation of redistributed responsibilities in Norway affects neurological physiotherapy practice within and across healthcare ...
    • Acquired loss of renal nuclease activity is restricted to DNase I and is an organselective feature in murine lupus nephritis 

      Seredkina, Natalya; Rekvik, Ole Petter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      An acquired loss of renal DNaseI has recently been shown to promote transformation of mild mesangial lupus nephritis into membrano-proliferative end-stage organ disease. In this study, we analyzed expression profiles of DNaseI in other organs of lupus-prone (NZBxNZW)F1 mice during disease progression to determine if silencing of the renal DNaseI gene is an organ specific feature or if loss of ...
    • Acquisition of foreign DNA by natural transformation in Acinetobacter baylyi: quantitative estimates and molecular characterization of the introgression process 

      Willumsen, Sigrid Serine (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2008-05-20)
      Very little is known about introgression in bacteria. Introgression is the process where the genes of one species infiltrate the gene pool of another organism by subsequent backcross transformations of a hybrid with one of its parents. After the initial acquisition of foreign DNA, DNA from the newly made transformants is used as donor DNA in backcross transformations with the recipient. DNA is ...
    • Action-associated modulation of visual event-related potentials evoked by abstract and ecological stimuli 

      Csifcsak, Gabor; Balla, Viktoria Roxana; Dalos, Vera Daniella; Kilencz, Tunde; Biro, Edit Magdolna; Urban, Gabor; Szaloki, Szilvia (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2018-09-19)
      This study investigated the influence of action‐associated predictive processes on visual ERPs. In two experiments, we sought evidence for sensory attenuation (SA) indexed by ERP amplitude reductions for self‐induced stimuli when compared to passive viewing of the same images. We assessed if SA is (a) present for both ecological and abstract stimuli (pictures depicting hands or checkerboards), (b) ...
    • Activation of Coagulation and Fibrinolysis in Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome: A Prospective Pilot Study 

      Ozolina, Agnese; Sarkele, Marina; Sabelnikovs, Olegs; Skesters, Andrejs; Jaunalksne, Inta; Serova, Jelena; Ievins, Talins; Bjertnæs, Lars J.; Vanags, Indulis (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-28)
      Introduction: Coagulation and fibrinolysis remain sparsely addressed with regards to acute respiratory distress syndrome (ARDS). We hypothesized that ARDS development might be associated with changes in plasma coagulation and fibrinolysis. Our aim was to investigate the relationships between ARDS diagnosis and plasma concentrations of tissue factor (TF), tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA), and ...
    • Active and passive smoking and the risk of myocardial infarction in 24,968 men and women during 11 year of follow-up: the Tromsø Study 

      Iversen, Birgitte; Jacobsen, Bjarne Koster; Løchen, Maja-Lisa (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Active smoking is a well-established risk factor for myocardial infarction, but less is known about the impact of passive smoking, and possible sex differences in risk related to passive smoking. We investigated active and passive smoking as risk factors for myocardial infarction in an 11-year follow-up of 11,762 men and 13,206 women included in the Tromsø Study. There were a total of 769 and 453 ...
    • Active loading of gemcitabine into liposomes 

      Møkleby, Tormund Aasjord (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2009-05)
      Gemcitabine is a well established anticancer compound, and is in use today against several types of cancers. Gemcitabine has a short half life. Formulations of gemcitabine containing liposomes could extend it's half life, thereby maybe improving its effectiveness. Also, liposomes in the smaller size range have an advantage when it comes to treating cancer. They accumulate at the site of the tumor, ...
    • Active Placebo - The relation of treatment expectancies to active analgesic treatments 

      Bjørkedal, Espen (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2016-11-25)
      The placebo analgesic effect refers to the improvement in a group receiving an inert treatment compared to a group receiving no treatment. Conversely, nocebo hyperalgesia refers to the worsening in a group receiving an inert treatment compared to a no treatment control group. The hypothesis that active treatments, e.g. a drug, enhance the placebo effect has received some support but rarely been ...
