  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
