  1. 1. Dose Adaptation Based on Pharmacometric Models

    Author : Johan Wallin; Mats Karlsson; Lena Friberg; Maria Garrido; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biopharmacy; Biofarmaci; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi;

    Abstract : Many drugs exhibit major variability in both pharmacokinetic (PK) and pharmacodynamic (PD) parameters that prevents the use of the same dose for all patients. Variability can occur both between patients (IIV) as well as within patients over the course of time (IOV). READ MORE

  2. 2. Embedded in a context : the adaptation of immigrant youth

    Author : Ylva Svensson; Håkan Stattin; Frosso Motti-Stefanidi; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; immigrant youth; adaptation; development; settings; contextual features; linkage; Psykologi; Psychology;

    Abstract : With rising levels of immigration comes a need to know what fosters positive adaptation for the youth growing up in a new culture of settlement.The issue is increasingly studied; however, little of the research conducted has combined a developmental with a contextual approach.

  3. 3. Adaptation and learning in postural control

    Author : Fredrik Tjernström; Lund näs- och halssjukdomar Öron-; []

    Abstract : The importance of the ability to use bipedal stance and gait in everyday life cannot be underestimated. Bipedal stance is learned during childhood and constantly adapted to changing circumstances throughout life. Failure to attain and maintain the control of upright posture can have catastrophic consequences. READ MORE

  4. 4. Stochastic Models in Phylogenetic Comparative Methods: Analytical Properties and Parameter Estimation

    Author : Krzysztof Bartoszek; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Adaptation; Adaptation; Birth-death process; Branching diffusion; Brownian motions; Conditioned branching process; Evolution; General Linear Model; Hybridization; Macroevolution; Measurement error; Multivariate phylogenetic comparative method; Optimality; Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process; Phyletic gradualism; Phylogenetic inertia; Phylogenetic uncertainty; Punctuated equilibrium; Yule tree; Macroevolution;

    Abstract : Phylogenetic comparative methods are well established tools for using inter-species variation to analyse phenotypic evolution and adaptation. They are generally hampered, however, by predominantly univariate approaches and failure to include uncertainty and measurement error in the phylogeny as well as the measured traits. READ MORE

  5. 5. Adjusting to the extreme : Thermal adaptation in a freshwater gastropod

    Author : Magnus Johansson; Laurila Anssi; Robby Stoks; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Radix balthica; Lake Mývatn; geothermal springs; thermal adaptation; isolation by environment; population structure; gene flow; cogradient variation; AFLP; thermal preference; CTmax; Biologi med inriktning mot populationsbiologi; Biology with specialization in Population Biology;

    Abstract : Temperature is a ubiquitous force influencing biological processes ranging from cellular responses to life span. The thermal environment for many organisms is predicted to change with globally increasing temperatures and studies conducted in natural systems incorporating various evolutionary forces, such as gene flow, is needed.
