    • 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. ...

The purpose of this study was to evaluate if it is possible to obtain precise administration of BTX around the radial artery using a single ultrasound-guided injection. We present a novel technique using 1 single ultrasound-guided BTX injection ...
    • Ultrasound-mediated destabilization and drug release from liposomes comprising dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine 

      Evjen, Tove Julie; Nilssen, Esben A.; Barnert, Sabine; Schubert, Rolf; Brandl, Martin; Fossheim, Sigrid L (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      Novel sonosensitive doxorubicin-containing liposomes comprising dioleoylphosphatidylethanolamine (DOPE) as the main lipid constituent were developed and characterized in terms of ultrasound-mediated drug release in vitro. The liposome formulation showed high sonosensitivity; where approximately 95% doxorubicin was released from liposomes after 6 min of 40 kHz US exposure in buffered sucrose solution. ...

    • Understanding temporality in human concentrations of organic contaminants -Considering human concentrations over time and through life in perspective of historic production and use 

      Nøst, Therese Haugdahl (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2014-06-25)
      Modern human lifestyle depends on a great number of synthetic chemicals and many designated as persistent organic pollutants (POPs). There are concerns for harmful health effects of POPs even for the background exposure experienced by the general population and especially for foetuses and children. The overarching aim of this thesis was to enhance our understanding of how human concentrations of ...
    • Understanding the binding of inhibitors of matrix metalloproteinases by molecular docking, quantum mechanical calculations, molecular dynamics simulations, and a MMGBSA/MMBappl study 

      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 ...
