  1. 1. Dietary Patterns Identification and Health Implications in the Swedish Population

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Erika Ax; Uppsala universitet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dietary Pattern; Dietary Recommendations; Dietary Survey; Environmental Contaminants; Healthy Diet Indicator; Heatlhy dietary pattern; Low-Carbohydrate; Mediterranean diet; Nutritional Biomarkers; Obesity; Overweight; Principal Component Analysis; Prostate Cancer; Sweden; Traditional dietary pattern; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science; Nutrition; Nutrition;

    Abstract : We eat foods not nutrients. What is more, we eat them in combinations. Consequently, capturing our complex food habits is likely an advantage in nutrition research. The overall aim of this doctoral thesis was therefore to investigate dietary patterns in the Swedish population –nutrient intakes, nutritional biomarkers and health aspects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improved analytical methods for perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and their precursors – a focus on human dietary exposure

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Shahid Ullah; Stockholms universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental Science; PFASs; PFAAs; PFOA; PFOS; Precursor; FOSA; PAPs; Method development; LC-MS; SPE; Dietary sample; Drinking water; Human exposure; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances are a large group of global environmental contaminants. They can be divided into two sub-groups, 1) perfluoroalkyl acids (PFAAs) and 2) so called precursors, i.e. compounds that can potentially be transformed to form PFAAs. READ MORE

  3. 3. On the regulation of immune responses to dietary and self antigens

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Applied Environmental Science (ITM), Stockholm University

    Author : Susanne Lindgren; Göteborgs universitet.; University of Gothenburg.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN; MEDICINE; Tolerance; regulatory T cells; self antigens; oral tolerance; dietary antigens; intestinal epithelial cells; exosomes; Staphylococcus aureus enterotoxin A;

    Abstract : Regulatory mechanisms are necessary to avoid the misdirected aggressive immune responses responsible for the pathology seen in autoimmunity and allergy. Thymic-derived CD4+CD25+ regulatory T cells are indispensible for this regulation. We investigated if CD4+CD25+ Treg prevents auto-reactive responses in adult peripheral blood and cord blood.

  4. 4. Aspects of institutional care of patients with dementia

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Per-Olof Sandman; Umeå universitet.; [1986]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Dementia; institutional care; ADL; constipation; conversation; dietary intake; morning; care; relocation;

    Abstract : The aim of the present study was to investigate all long-term institutions in the county of Västerbotten, Northern Sweden, to give a detailed description of the institutionalized population with respect to motor functions, vision, hearing, speech, ADL-functions, prevalence of psychiatric symptoms and behavioral disturbances, staff work load, use of psychoactive drugs and prevalence of dementia. Another aim was to select some specific 'problem areas' in the nursing care of demented patients for further descriptive and interventional studies. READ MORE

  5. 5. Occupational and dietary exposure to organohalogen substances, with special emphasis on polybrominated diphenyl ethers

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Stockholm University

    Author : Andreas Sjödin; Stockholms universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; miljökemi; Environmental Chemistry;

    Abstract : This thesis is aimed at widening the current knowledge base about human exposure to brominated flame retardants (BFRs), particularly polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) and tetrabromobisphenol A (TBBPA). Data on exposures to some of the traditional organohalogen substances (OHS) have been included for comparative reasons. READ MORE
