    • Ultrasound imaging of carotid atherosclerosis in a normal population. The Tromsø Study 

      Johnsen, Stein Harald; Mathiesen, Ellisiv B. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2009)
      In the Tromsø study, we have successfully used high resolution ultrasonography for assessing atherosclerosis development in a general population. The method is well suited for large epidemiological surveys. Methodological problems could be overcome by using highly standardized protocols, pre-study training of sonographers and readers, and off-line computer-based batch reading of digitized images. ...

      Singh, Tanya; Adekoya, Olayiwola; Jayaram, B. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-01-14)
      Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) consist of a class of proteins required for normal tissue function. Their over expression is associated with many disease states and hence the interest in MMPs as drug targets. Almost all MMP inhibitors have been reported to fail in clinical trials due to lack of specificity. Zinc in the binding site of metalloproteinases performs essential biological functions ...

    • Understanding variation in primary medical care: a nine-country qualitative study of clinicians' accounts of the non-clinical factors that shape antibiotic prescribing decisions for lower respiratory tract infection. 

      Brookes-Howell, Lucy; Hood, Kerenza; Cooper, Lucy; Little, Paul; Verheij, Theo; Coenen, Samuel; Godycki-Cwirko, Maciek; Melbye, Hasse; Borras-Santos, A; Worby, P; Jakobsen, Kristin Alise; Goossens, Herman; Butler, Christopher C. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      There is a wide variation between European countries in antibiotic prescribing for patients in primary care with lower respiratory tract infection (LRTI) that is not explained by case mix and clinical factors alone. Variation in antibiotic prescribing that is not warranted by differences in illness and clinical presentation may increase selection of resistant organisms, contributing to the problem ...
    • Undersøkelse av en ny topikal antimykotisk "liposom-i-hydrogel" legemiddelformulering med virkestoffet flukonazol 

      Johansen, Kurt Jonny (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-05-20)
      Effektiv antifungal behandling er utfordrende og oppnå, og midler til systemisk bruk er forbundet med mange bivirkninger og interaksjoner. Lokal administrasjon er derfor å foretrekke. Målet for lokal dermal antimykotisk behandling er å maksimere deponeringen av legemiddel til huden, og samtidig unngå transdermal passasje med uønskete systemiske effekter, som bivirkninger og interaksjoner. I denne ...
    • Undersøkelse av kommunikasjon mellom personer med spiseforstyrrelse og tannleger, og forebyggende tiltak 

      Johansen, Kristin Mari (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2015-05-19)
      Oppgaven tar for seg hvordan oppleves kommunikasjon mellom personer med spiseforstyrrelse og tannlege. Et gjennomgående funn var at å snakke om spiseforstyrrelse var vanskelig fra begge partenes ståsted. Det vanligste er at personer med spiseforstyrrelse fortsatte å gå til tannlege etter sykdomsdebut, men unnlater å fortelle tannlegen at de har sykdommen. Blant tannleger var egenvurdert kunnskapsnivået ...
    • Undersøkelse av signaltransduksjonsmekanismer ved S100A4-indusert aktivering av transkripsjonsfaktoren NF-κB 

      Grotterød, Ida (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2007-06-19)
      S100A4 er et lite kalsiumbindende protein som tilhører S100-proteinfamilien. Proteinet er vist å ha en viktig rolle i metastaseprosessen, bl.a. ved å stimulere kreftcellenes motilitet og invasjonsevne. I de senere år har man blitt klar over at flere av de observerte biologiske effektene av S100A4 kan skyldes ekstracellulært protein. Ved transient transfeksjon med et reporterkonstrukt for ...
