  1. 1. Targeting and driving somatosensory neurons

    Author : Fabio Freitag; Malin C. Lagerström; Andrew Todd; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Pain; Itch; GRPR interneurons; dorsal horn; trigeminal nucleus caudalis; Barrel field;

    Abstract : Pain and itch are two distinct sensations, but the fundamental question of how our nervous system distinguishes the processing and encoding of their related information is still far to be clearly delineated. At the spinal cord level, evidences have pointed out specific groups of neurons expressing the gastrin releasing peptide (Grp) and its receptor (Grpr) as responsible for carrying specifically itch-related information.

  3. 3. Modulation of Autoimmunity by Linomide treatment or interference with costimulation

    Author : Annamaria C Tellander; Institutionen för experimentell medicinsk vetenskap; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; oncology; Cytology; collagen-induced arthritis; CD28; CD40; antigen presenting cells; Linomide; thymocytes; cancerology; Cytologi; onkologi; cancer;

    Abstract : Linomide is a potent immunomodulator that has been shown to inhibit autoimmunity in several animal models of autoimmune disease. We have approached the cellular and molecular mechanism of Linomide by investigating its effect on thymocyte development and its capacity to modulate the expression of activation markers on antigen presenting cells (APCs).

  4. 4. Structural Health Monitoring of Bridges : Data-based damage detection method using Machine Learning

    Author : Ana C. Neves; Raid Karoumi; Elsa Caetano; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; Structural Health Monitoring; damage detection; Machine Learning; data-based methods; Artificial Neural Networks; Value of Information; Bro- och stålbyggnad; Structural Engineering and Bridges;

    Abstract : Civil engineering structures built according to modern codes are designed for a service life of normally more than 100 years. At the same time, there is a growing pressure to keep existing aged structures in service despite the fact that they have reached the original designed lifetime, with bridges being a good example of this.

  5. 5. Maternity care in Zambia : With special reference to social support

    Author : Margaret C Maimbolwa; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Social support; safe motherhood; maternity care; midwifery care; breastfeeding.;

    Abstract : The Zambian woman starts childbearing early and gives birth to an average of 5.9 children during her reproductive period. The already high levels of maternal deaths are increasing in Zambia. Only 43 per cent of the women deliver with the assistance of a skilled attendant. READ MORE
