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

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

    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

    Author : Susanne Amsberg; Unn-Britt Johansson; Ulf Adamson; Per-Eric Lins; Regina Wredling; Berit Rokne Hanestad; Sophiahemmet Högskola; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; 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; Nursing; Omvårdnad; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Type 1 diabetes; diabetes-related distress; psychometrics; behaviour modification; cognitive behaviour therapy; behavioural medicine; glycaemic control; predictor; lipohypertrophy; insulin absorption; injection technique;

    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. Domestication Effects on the Stress Response in Chickens : Genetics, Physiology, and Behaviour

    Author : Amir Fallahshahroudi; Per Jensen; Frank Albert; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURVETENSKAP; LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; NATURAL SCIENCES; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Animal domestication; stress response; gene expression; QTL; eQTL;

    Abstract : Animal domestication, the process where animals become adapted to living in proximity to humans, is associated with the alteration of multiple traits, including decreased fearfulness and stress response. With an estimated population of 50 billion, the domesticated chicken is the most populous avian species in the world. READ MORE

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

    Author : Devika Mehra; Socialmedicin och global hälsa; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Sexual behaviour; alcohol; 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

  5. 5. Oxidation behaviour of MCrAlX coatings : effect of surface treatment and an Al-activity based life criterion

    Author : Pimin Zhang; Ru Lin Peng; Xin-Hai Li; Sten Johansson; Fang Liu; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : MCrAlY coatings (M=Ni and/or Co) have been widely used for the protection of superalloy components against oxidation and hot corrosion in the hot sections of gas turbines. The drive to improve engine combustion efficiency while reducing emissions by increasing the operation temperature brings a big challenge for coating design. READ MORE
