Anti-Obesity and Anti-Hypertensive Action of Calanus Oil
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2015-03-04)
In this doctoral project we have examined the biological effects of Calanus oil in a mouse model of obesity. Calanus oil is extracted from the marine copepod Calanus finmarchicus and is one of the richest sources of poly-unsaturated fatty acids in nature. C57BL/6J mice were given a high-fat diet (HFD) over a 27 wk period in order to induce obesity, which was reflected in deposition of considerable ...

Cardiovascular risk factors, atherosclerosis and venous thromboembolism - The Tromsø study
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2014-12-22)
Venous thromboembolism (VTE) is a common and potentially fatal disease, often occuring in the absence of obvious predisposing factors. Recent observational studies in selected populations have suggested a closer association between arterial thrombosis (myocardial infarction (MI) and stroke) and VTE, two disease entities considered separate in terms of pathophysiology, epidemiology and treatments. ...
Size characterisation of liposomes using asymmetrical flow field-flow fractionation : factors influencing fractionation and size determination
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2009-08-27)
Liposomes play an important role in medical and pharmaceutical science as e.g. nanoscale drug carriers. One of their most important features is their size and size distribution, influencing both their biodistribution and passive targeting abilities upon intravenous administration. To this day there is no single method for size characterisation of liposomes that fulfils all following criteria: being ...
Gene expression profile of normal and compromised placentas
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2009-06-26)
<b>Objective</b> <br>Placenta has an important function of sustaining life in utero. Role of placental gene expression in the physiology of parturition and pathogenesis of pregnancy disorders are poorly understood. The aims of this thesis were to: <br>1. Investigate the effect of labor on global gene expression profile of normal placentas <br>2. Compare placental gene expression profile of ...

Clinical epidemiology of Systemic Lupus Erythematosus with emphasis on nephritis and autoantibody production
(Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2011-09-09)
Systemisk Lupus Erythematosus (SLE) er en kronisk sykdom der immunforsvaret produserer antistoffer som kan angripe kroppens egne organer. I 1997 ble klassifikasjonskriteriene for å stille diagnosen endret slik at flere typer autoantistoffer ble inkludert. For å undersøke mulige endringer etter innføring av de nye 1997 klassifikasjonskriteriene for SLE, delte vi inn pasientene i to grupper. En ...
