  1. 1. Nanocellulose for Biomedical Applications Modification, Characterisation and Biocompatibility Studies

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kai Hua; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Nanocellulose; nanofibrillated cellulose; Cladophora cellulose; biocompatibility; inflammation; surface modification; surface group density; surface topography; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot nanoteknologi och funktionella material; Engineering Science with specialization in Nanotechnology and Functional Materials;

    Abstract : In the past decade there has been increasing interest in exploring the use of nanocellulose in medicine. However, the influence of the physicochemical properties of nanocellulose on the material´s biocompatibility has not been fully investigated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Health Promotion in Diabetes Care : Studies on Adult Type 1 Diabetes Patients

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Susanne Amsberg; Sophiahemmet Högskola.; [2008]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 1 diabetes; Diabetes-related distress; Psychometrics; Behaviour modification; Cognitive behaviour therapy; Behavioural medicine; Glycaemic control; Predictor; Lipohypertrophy; Insulin absorption; Injection technique; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences Nursing; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap Omvårdnad;

    Abstract : Introduction: A landmark report has shown that improving glycaemic control among type 1 diabetes patients markedly reduces diabetes-related complications. In clinical practice, however, many patients have problems in adhering to the treatment, and thus remain in poor glycaemic control. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sexual behaviour among Ugandan university students: A gender perspective

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Author : Devika Mehra; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alcohol; Sexual behaviour; university students; condom; contraception; sexual coercion; academic performance; Uganda;

    Abstract : Feminisation of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in sub-Saharan Africa is an important public health concern. Therefore, it is crucial that we understand the various risk factors that shape unsafe sexual behaviours among young people in Uganda. READ MORE

  4. 4. Solution properties of a hydrophobically modified polymer

    University dissertation from Physical Chemistry 1, Lund University

    Author : Krister Thuresson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [1996]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; surfactants; sodium dodecylsulfate; fluorescence; light scattering; NMR; rheology; cloud point; phase behaviour; polyelectrolytes; ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose; hydrophobically modified; water soluble polymers; aggregation number; association; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The influence of hydrophobic modification on solution properties of water-soluble polymers in the semi-dilute regime have been studied. The nonionic ethyl(hydroxyethyl)cellulose (EHEC) and its hydrophobically modified analogue (HM-EHEC) are used as model substances. READ MORE

  5. 5. Associative Multicomponent Polymers in Bulk and at Interfaces

    University dissertation from Physical Chemistry 1, Lund University

    Author : Fredrik Joabsson; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2001]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; polymer self-diffusion; polymer adsorption; polymer-surfactant interactions; phase behaviour; ethyl hydroxyethyl cellulose; hydrophobically modified polymers; capillary-induced phase separation; Physical chemistry; Fysikalisk kemi;

    Abstract : The solution and interfacial properties of an associative water-soluble cellulose derivative, ethyl(hydroxyethyl)cellulose (EHEC) have been investigated. Main themes have been to study the effect of hydrophobic modification of the polymer (HM-EHEC) and the interactions with surfactants, both in bulk and at interfaces. READ MORE
