    • Zebrafish and safety pharmacology. Effects of ethanol on early brain and eye development. 

      Ali, Amina Mohammed (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2014-05-21)
      Ethanol is well studied with regard to its teratogenic effects in different animal models including humans. Exposure of a fetus to alcohol during pregnancy can lead to fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), or ethanol mediated toxicity in animal models. During early embryogenesis, development of the most important organs including the central nervous system (CNS) occurs. Disturbance of any function that ...
    • Zebrafish as a model system for safety pharmacology, using a glucocorticoid and an antimicrobial peptide as test substances 

      Albert, Ingrid (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2013-05-20)
      The zebrafish is an exciting model organism with a lot to offer and many possible areas of application. Toxicity assays using zebrafish embryos are becoming increasingly popular with the pharmaceutical industry as a tool to bridge the gap between conventional cell based screens and animal testing. The main aim of this project was to explore the zebrafish as a model system for use in safety pharmacology, ...

    • Zinc deficiency is common in several psychiatric disorders 

      Grønli, Ole Kristian; Kvamme, Jan-Magnus; Friborg, Oddgeir; Wynn, Rolf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2013)
      Background: Mounting evidence suggests a link between low zinc levels and depression. There is, however, little knowledge about zinc levels in older persons with other psychiatric diagnoses. Therefore, we explore the zinc status of elderly patients suffering from a wide range of psychiatric disorders. Methods: Clinical data and blood samples for zinc analyzes were collected from 100 psychogeriatric ...
    • "Æ har nokka å fortell" : å arbeide med studentenes egne yrkesfortellinger 

      Knudsen, Liv-Berit (Book; Bok, 2001-06)
      Denne rapporten handler om hvordan studenter og yrkesutøvere kan arbeide med sykepleiefaget ved å bruke egne "yrkesfortellinger". Rapporten belyser hvordan arbeidsformen er brukt ved Høgskolen i Tromsø, Avdeling for helsefag, Videreutdanningen i eldreomsorg, og mine erfaringer og refleksjoner relatert til dette. Arbeidsformen kan også ha relevans for andre yrkesfaglige utdanninger. I rapporten ...
    • Østrogenbehandling i overgangsalderen : å bruke eller ikke bruke? 

      Karlsen, Lise; Ølness, Ingrid Opheim (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2011-09-15)
      Vi har skrevet en oppgave hvor vi har gjort et litteraturstudie av hormonbehandling i overgangsalderen. Vi tok utgangspunkt i en problemstilling hvor vi ønsket å se på eventuelle fordeler ved bruk av hormontilskudd og risikoen for uheldige effekter i etterkant av behandlingen. I tillegg til å lese artikler fra PubMed har vi også tatt i bruk relevant faglitteratur. Spørsmålet om hormonbehandling ...
    • β-cyclodextrin polymers as cholesterol sequestrating agents 

      Fadeev, Nikolay Olegovich (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-08-19)
      Summary Elevated serum cholesterol blood levels is one of the central risk factors for cardiovascular diseases. Lowering blood cholesterol have significant impact on lowering cardiovascular disease events. Inhibiting cholesterol absorption in small intestine can significantly lower serum cholesterol levels and thereby - lower cardiovascular events. Β-cyclodextrin (βCD)-dextran polymer is expected ...
