  • Complete Genome Sequences of 12 Quinolone-Resistant Escherichia coli Strains Containing qnrS1 Based on Hybrid Assemblies 

    Kaspersen, Håkon; Haverkamp, Thomas Hendricus Augustus; Ilag, Hanna Karin; Øines, Øivind; Sekse, Camilla; Slettemeås, Jannice Schau (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2021-01-28)
    In total, 12 quinolone-resistant <i>Escherichia coli</i> (QREC) strains containing <i>qnrS1</i> were submitted to long-read sequencing using a FLO-MIN106 flow cell on a MinION device. The long reads were assembled with short reads (Illumina) and analyzed using the MOB-suite pipeline. Six of these QREC genome sequences were closed after hybrid assembly.
  • Clinical Lipidomics: Effects of Vitamin D in Human Adipose Tissue 

    Chan, Sze Mang Sammy (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-10)
    Vitamin D is vital for calcium homeostasis and skeletal health, has immunomodulatory effects and is involved in the regulation of differentiation and proliferation of many different cell types. Adipose tissue is an important metabolic organ and a major organ for vitamin D storage. Though, the role of vitamin D and its function in adipose tissue is not fully explored. This thesis applies a solvent ...
  • Molecular modelling of interactions between antipsychotic drugs and receptors mediating antipsychotic effects and important side effects 

    Issifou, Halimatu Sadia T. (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2021-05-10)
    Dopamine and serotonin are two neurotransmitters that exert their actions through mediation of dopaminergic and serotonergic receptors respectively. The receptors in focus in the current study, are the dopamine D2 and serotonin 5-HT2A receptors. Common for both receptors is that they are class A G-protein-coupled receptors consisting of seven transmembrane helices embedded in the lipid membrane of ...

  • Forskningsfeltet innvandrerhelse i Norge – en litteraturstudie 

    Eriksen, Linda (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-05)
    Innledning: Migrasjon er relatert til helse i et komplekst samspill. Det er utfordringer knyttet til enkelte helseproblemer og til tilgjengelighet av helsetjenester for enkelte innvandrere. Forskningsaktiviteten innen innvandrerhelse er økende, men veksten er ustrukturert. Økt fokus kan videreføre arbeidet for likeverdige helsetjenester på en evidensbasert måte hvis forskningsfeltet systematiseres. ...
  • Potential candidates for ECPR in the catchment area of the University hospital in North Norway 

    Underdahl, Ole Marius (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-03)
    Introduction: Some studies report increased survival from out of hospital cardiac arrest (OHCA) with extracorporeal cardiopulmonary resuscitation (ECPR), but the survival rates vary and heterogeneous study populations complicate comparison between studies. Aim: The purpose of this study was to find potential ECPR candidates among all OHCA cases in the catchment area of the University Hospital of ...
  • En perioperativ infusjon av GLP-1 forbedrer perifer insulinsensitivitet etter kirurgi 

    Hole, Mikal Jacob (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-06-03)
    Bakgrunn: Postoperativ insulinresistens er assosiert med flere komplikasjoner, og behandling reduserer risiko. Inkretin-analogen GLP-1 forbedrer glykemisk kontroll, uten risiko for skadelig hypoglykemi, og kan potensielt øke postoperativ insulinsensitivitet i perifert vev samt redusere hepatisk glukoseutskillelse. Vi ønsket å finne ut av om en perioperativ infusjon av GLP-1 forbedrer insulinsensitiviteten ...
  • Hvordan radiologiske undersøkelser påvirker pasientflyt i akuttmottaket – en studie før og etter innføring av overlege i akuttmottak 

    Sandnes, Martine Mo (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-02)
    Innledning: Ventetid på radiologiske undersøkelser er en viktig årsak til store deler av ventetiden i akuttmottaket. Overfylte akuttmottak er et problem i hele verden, og å øke den legefaglige kompetansen i akuttmottaket er et tiltak som har vist seg å være nyttig i andre land. Det er derimot ingen som har sett på hva det spesifikt har gjort med ventetidene til radiologiske undersøkelser. Metode: ...
  • Natalizumab ved Multippel Sklerose. Praksis og erfaring fra Nevrologisk avdeling, Nordlandssykehuset i Bodø 

    Jaklin, Andreas Kildahl (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-02)
    Bakgrunn: Natalizumab (Tysabri®) er et immunmodulerende legemiddel som brukes som behandling mot multippel sklerose (MS). Det tilbys vanligvis som andrelinjebehandling, men enkelte pasienter med aggressiv sykdom starter direkte med natalizumab. Det er generelt et godt tolerert og effektivt legemiddel, men er assosiert med enkelte alvorlige bivirkninger, som den sjeldne tilstanden progressiv ...

Objectivities: To explore potential loss of retention ...
  • Comparing apical bacterial leakage using two different obturation techniques in human upper incisors: An in vitro pilot study 

    Johansen, Signe Marie; Mikkelsen, Synne (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2020-05-19)
    The materials and techniques for root canal obturation is critical for treatment success. Cold lateral condensation is a widely used obturation technique, but core carrier techniques requiring heat has been developed to overcome disadvantages with the cold obturation techniques. GuttaCore is a relatively new and unstudied core carrier technique in vitro. The bacterial leakage test has been regarded ...
  • Network Analysis: an approach to the study of drug-drug relations. Co-medication in Norwegian elderly and severe drug-drug interactions as examples 

    Askar, Mohsen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-05-15)
    Network analysis (NA) has been used for studying many social aspects. Employing of network analysis as an approach in the field of public health, to study the relations between patients or health workers and their potential effects in many medical perspectives, took a good share of researchers’ efforts as well. Few attempts have been conducted to use network analysis to study drug-drug relations ...
  • Collateral sensitivity in clinical mecillinam resistant isolates of Escherichia coli 

    Nguyen, Tammy Tam Hoai Thi (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2016-05-13)
    Background The rapid increase in antimicrobial resistance (AMR) has become a major threat to the successful management of infectious diseases. To counteract this global threat, development of novel treatment strategies is essential. A promising strategy may be exploiting collateral sensitivity; a phenomenon that occurs when a microorganism that has developed resistance to one antimicrobial agent, ...
  • Influence of environmental tonicity changes on lipophilic drug release from liposomes 

    Nikolaisen, Trygg Einar (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2018-05-15)
    Introduction: Liposomes as drug delivery systems has been widely studied as a way to solubilize poorly soluble drugs, reduce side effects of chemotherapeutics and increase circulation time in vivo. Since the first descriptions of liposomes over 60 years ago, they have shown tendencies to shrink and swell when the external environment of the liposomes is altered. This phenomenon has been studied in ...
  • What predicts student decision to leave? A new perspective on academic attrition 

    Nemtcan, Efim (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2019-05-02)
    The issue of attrition from higher education is a significant problem across Europe and especially Norway, where dropout rates are as high as 20-25%. In the current study, we address the issue from the perspective of attrition intentions that have been found closely associated with actual attrition behavior. In particular, we attempted to differentiate between types of students’ attrition intentions: ...
  • Provosert abort blant tenåringer i Finnmark - Tiltak som har bidratt til å redusere abortraten de siste år 

    Nilsen, Lisa Adeleide (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2019-06-03)
    Bakgrunn: Økt tilgjengelighet på prevensjon og relevante helsetjenester er viktige faktorer for å redusere antall provoserte aborter. De siste årene har det vært en betydelig reduksjon i antall aborter blant tenåringsjenter i Finnmark og landet forøvrig. Dette etter at det har vært igangsatt flere nasjonale tiltak gjennom handlingsplaner. Finnmark har tradisjonelt hatt høy abortforekomst i Norge og ...
