    • Gangvansker hos barn med cerebral parese og fysioterapi : samhandling og mulighet for endring i bevegelseskvalitet : en kvalitativ observasjonsstudie 

      Thon, Tonje (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-05-15)
      Bakgrunn for studien er et ønske om å forstå mer av hva som skjer i klinisk praksis basert på egne praksiserfaringer, forekomst av cerebral parese og eksisterende forskning på området. Hensikten er å analysere og dokumentere hva som skjer i fysioterapibehandling av barn med cerebral parese som har gangvansker. I tillegg er hensikten å se om det skjer endringer i bevegelseskvalitet i behandlingene, ...

      Storm, Benjamin Stage; Christiansen, Dorte; Dybwik, Knut; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Nielsen, Erik Waage (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-10-01)
      <p><i>Introduction</i>: Venous air embolism (VAE) may arise during surgical procedures. VAE might be complicated with a systemic inflammatory response, disseminated intervascular coagulation, multi-organ failure and cardiovascular collapse. During a short time-span, three patients at our institution developed signs of VAE in conjunction with gynecological surgery. One died, one developed severe ...

      <i>Objectives</i>: The recovery process is reported by stroke survivors to be a change process fraught with crises and hazard. Interaction with health professionals and others may play a central role in establishing renewed control over life.<p> <p><i>Research Questions</i>: (1) How do patients handle and overcome experienced changes after stroke? (2) How do they experience the support to ...
    • Gemcitabine-containing liposomes 

      Gravem, Hilde (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2006-06-16)
      Gemcitabine, an anticancer agent, is currently in clinical use for the treatment of several types of cancer. Unfortunately, gemcitabine is rapidly metabolised with a short plasma half-life and its cytostatic action is strongly exposure-time dependent. In order to achieve the required concentration over sufficient periods of time, repeated application of relatively high doses is required. This, in ...
    • Gender differences in association between uric acid and all-cause mortality in patients with chronic heart failure 

      Stubnova, Viera; Os, Ingrid; Høieggen, Aud; Solbu, Marit Dahl; Grundtvig, Morten; Westheim, Arne; Atar, Dan; Waldum-Grevbo, Bård (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-05)
      <p><i>Background - </i>Elevated serum uric acid (SUA) is associated with poor prognosis in patients with cardiovascular disease, yet it is still not decided whether the role of SUA is causal or only reflects an underlying disease. The purpose of the study was to investigate if SUA was an independent predictor of 5-year all-cause mortality in a propensity score matched cohort of chronic heart failure ...
    • Gender differences in hearts subjected to decreased NO-production and elevated blood pressure 

      Kildal, Simon; Ludvigsen, Stian; Norvik, Jon Viljar; Johansen, David; Ytrehus, Kirsti (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-10-31)
      Hypertension is one of the most important risk factors for heart failure in the general population. Hypertensive heart failure is associated with heart failure with preserved ejection fraction (HFpEF). Women have an increase proportion of HFpEF compared to men. Endothelial dysfunction thereby reduced NO production is proposed to play an important role in the pathophysiology of HFpEF. A suggested ...

      Kristoffersen, Agnete Egilsdatter; Stub, Trine; Salamonsen, Anita; Musial, Frauke; Hamberg, Katarina (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-12-03)
    • Gender differences in the bidirectional relationship between alcohol consumption and sleeplessness: the Tromsø study 

      Rognmo, Kamilla; Bergvik, Svein; Rosenvinge, Jan H; Bratlid, Katja Lovise; Friborg, Oddgeir (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-29)
      <i>Background</i> - The degree to which the relationship between alcohol use and sleeplessness is unidirectional or reciprocal is unclear due to great variation among the results of previous studies. The aim of the present study was to investigate if the relationship between alcohol use and sleeplessness is bidirectional by exploring how the change in and stability of alcohol use were related to ...
    • Gender differences in the use of psychiatric outpatient specialist services in Tromsø, Norway are dependent on age: a population-based cross-sectional survey 

      Hansen, Anne Helen; Høye, Anne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-10-22)
      Background: Overall, men are less likely than women to seek health care services for mental health problems, but differences between genders in higher age groups are equivocal. The aim of the current study was to investigate the association between gender and the use of psychiatric outpatient specialist services in Norway, both in a general population and in a subpopulation with self-reported anxiety ...
    • Gender specific association between the use of complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) and alcohol consumption and injuries caused by drinking in the sixth Tromsø study 

      Sivertsen, Kristina; Lukic, Marko; Kristoffersen, Agnete Egilsdatter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-08-13)
      <p><i>Background</i>: Alcohol is consumed almost worldwide and is the most widely used recreational drug in the world. Harmful use of alcohol is known to cause a large disease-, social- and economic burden on society. Only a few studies have examined the relationship between CAM use and alcohol consumption. To our knowledge there has been no such research in Norway. The aim of this study is to ...
    • A gender specific improved survival related to stromal miR-143 and miR-145 expression in non-small cell lung cancer 

      Skjefstad, Kaja Konstanse; Johannessen, Charles; Grindstad, Thea K.W.; Kilvær, Thomas Karsten; Paulsen, Erna Elise; Pedersen, Mona Irene; Dønnem, Tom; Andersen, Sigve; Bremnes, Roy M.; Richardsen, Elin; Al-Saad, Samer; Busund, Lill-Tove (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-06-04)
      Micro RNAs (miRNA) are small non-coding RNAs that post-transcriptionally regulate gene expression. Dysregulation of miRNA cluster 143/145 has been reported in several malignancies, but their role in non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) remains elusive. This study investigates the prognostic impact of miR-143 and miR-145 in primary tumors and metastatic lymph nodes in NSCLC tissue. Tissue from 553 ...

      Introduction: The introduction of high-throughput technologies, also called -omics technologies, into epidemiology has raised the need for high-quality observational studies to reduce several sources of error and bias. Methods: The Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) postgenome cohort study consists of approximately 50,000 women born between 1943 and 1957 who gave blood samples between 2003 ...

Investigate the effect of labor on global gene expression profile of normal placentas <br>2. Compare placental gene expression profile of ...
    • Gene expression profiling of Gram-negative bacteria-induced inflammation in human whole blood: The role of complement and CD14-mediated innate immune response 

      Lau, Corinna; Olstad, Ole Kristoffer; Holden, Marit; Nygård, Ståle; Fure, Hilde; Lappegård, Knut Tore; Brekke, Ole Lars; Espevik, Terje; Hovig, Johannes Eivind; Mollnes, Tom Eirik (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-30)
      Non-sterile pathogen-induced sepsis and sterile inflammation like in trauma or ischemia–reperfusion injury may both coincide with the life threatening systemic inflammatory response syndrome and multi-organ failure. Consequently, there is an urgent need for specific biomarkers in order to distinguish sepsis from sterile conditions. The overall aim of this study was to uncover putative sepsis ...
