    • Lupus Nephritis: Enigmas, Conflicting Models and an Emerging Concept 

      Seredkina, Natalya; van der Vlag, Johan; Berden, Jo; Mortensen, Elin Synnøve; Rekvig, Ole Petter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Autoantibodies to components of chromatin, which include double-stranded DNA (dsDNA), histones and nucleosomes, are central in the pathogenesis of lupus nephritis. How anti-chromatin autoantibodies exert their nephritogenic activity, however, is controversial. One model assumes that autoantibodies initiate inflammation when they cross-react with intrinsic glomerular structures such as components ...
    • Lupus nephritis: low urinary DNase I levels reflect loss of renal DNase I and may be utilized as a biomarker of disease progression 

      Pedersen, Hege Lynum; Horvei, Kjersti Daae; Thiyagarajan, Dhivya; Norby, Gudrun; Seredkina, Natalya; Moroni, Gabriella; Eilertsen, Gro Østli; Holdaas, Hallvard; Strøm, Erik Heyerdahl; Bakland, Gunnstein; Meroni, Pier Luigi; Rekvig, Ole Petter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-02-21)
      Renal DNase I is lost in advanced stages of lupus nephritis. Here, we determined if loss of renal DNase I reflects a concurrent loss of urinary DNase I, and whether absence of urinary DNase I predicts disease progression. Mouse and human DNase I protein and DNase I endonuclease activity levels were determined by western blot, gel, and radial activity assays at different stages of the murine and human ...

    • Lymphangiogenic Markers and Their Impact on Nodal Metastasis and Survival in Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer--A Structured Review with Meta-Analysis. 

      Kilvær, Thomas Karsten; Paulsen, Erna-Elise; Hald, Sigurd; Wilsgaard, Tom; Bremnes, Roy M.; Busund, Lill-Tove (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-25)
      Background In non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), nodal metastasis is an adverse prognostic factor. Several mediating factors have been implied in the development of nodal metastases and investigated for predictive and prognostic properties in NSCLC. However, study results differ. In this structured review and meta-analysis we explore the published literature on commonly recognized pathways for ...

    • Lønnsspiralen i fotballnæringen, en gordisk knute? 

      Bertheussen, Bernt Arne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Til tross for stadig større inntekter, er mange klubbøkonomier i krise. En viktig årsak til dette er at lønnskostnadene eskalerer. I denne artikkelen drøftes årsaker til lønnspresset i fotballnæringen. Fotballklubber er primært opptatt av sport og ikke av økonomi, men klubbene er avhengige av økonomiske ressurser for å kunne oppnå sportslig suksess. De beste klubbene i Tippeligaen ansetter dyre ...

      Marsland, Finn; Anson, Judith; Waddington, Gordon; Holmberg, Hans-Christer; Chapman, Dale W (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-17)
      We compare the macro-kinematics of six elite female cross-country skiers competing in 1.1-km Sprint and 10.5-km Distance classical technique events on consecutive days under similar weather and track conditions. The relative use of double pole (DP), kick-double pole (KDP), diagonal stride (DS), tucking (Tuck) and turning (Turn) subtechniques, plus each technique’s respective velocities, cycle ...

    • Macrophages modulate migration and invasion of human tongue squamous cell carcinoma 

      Pirilä, Emma; Väyrynen, Otto; Sundquist, Elias; Päkkilä, Kaisa; Nyberg, Pia; Nurmenniemi, Sini; Pääkkönen, Virve; Pesonen, Paula; Dayan, Dan; Vered, Marilena; Uhlin-Hansen, Lars; Salo, Tuula (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-03-26)
      Oral tongue squamous cell carcinoma (OTSCC) has a high mortality rate and the incidence is rising worldwide. Despite advances in treatment, the disease lacks specific prognostic markers and treatment modality. The spreading of OTSCC is dependent on the tumor microenvironment and involves tumor-associated macrophages (TAMs). Although the presence of TAMs is associated with poor prognosis in OTSCC, ...

    • Magnetic resonance imaging of pancreatic islets transplantation 

      Evgenov, Natalia Victorovna (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2012-08-30)
      Transplanted insulin-producing cells can be safely monitored by magnetic resonance imaging Transplantation of insulin-producing cells can treat patients with diabetes. Unfortunately, the long-term effects of this treatment are poor due to non-survival of the majority of the transplanted cells. In our study, we found that magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can be safely used to trace survival of the ...
    • Magnetic resonance volumetry: prediction of subjective memory complaints and mild cognitive impairment, and associations with genetic and cardiovascular risk factors

      <i>Background/Aims</i>: Subjective memory complaints (SMC) are strong predictors of mild cognitive impairment (MCI) and subsequent Alzheimer’s disease. Our aims were to see if fully automated cerebral MR volume measurements could distinguish subjects with SMC and MCI from controls, and if probable parental late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD), apolipoprotein E ε4 genotype, total plasma homocysteine, ...

      Background: Much of the current literature on diet–colorectal cancer (CRC) associations focused on studies of single foods/ nutrients, whereas less is known about nutrient patterns. We investigated the association between major nutrient patterns and CRC risk in participants of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) study. <p>Methods: Among 477 312 participants, ...
    • Major incident preparedness and on-site work among Norwegian rescue personnel - a cross-sectional study.

      A major incident has occurred when the number of live casualties, severity, type of incident or location requires extraordinary resources. Major incident management is interdisciplinary and involves triage, treatment and transport of patients. We aimed to investigate experiences within major incident preparedness and management among Norwegian rescue workers. A questionnaire was answered by 918 ...
