  1. 1. Being old in our society health, functional status, and effects of research

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Norstedts Förlag

    Author : Eva von Strauss; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; ageing; attitude; dementia; functional status; morbidity; participation; population survey; nonagenarians; ageing; attitude; dementia; functional status; morbidity; participation; population survey; and nonagenarians;

    Abstract : This thesis concerns health and functional status in old age, as well as older adults' attitudes towards research participation. Five studies were performed using data from the Kungsholmen Project, a population-based study on ageing and dementia ongoing in Stockholm since 1987.Occurrence of dementia. READ MORE

  2. 2. Functional association networks for disease gene prediction

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Dimitri Guala; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; network biology; biological networks; network prediction; functional association; functional coupling; network integration; functional association networks; genome-wide association networks; gene networks; protein networks; fret; functional enrichment analysis; network cross-talk; pathway annotation; gene prioritisation; network-based gene prioritization; benchmarking; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Mapping of the human genome has been instrumental in understanding diseasescaused by changes in single genes. However, disease mechanisms involvingmultiple genes have proven to be much more elusive. Their complexityemerges from interactions of intracellular molecules and makes them immuneto the traditional reductionist approach. READ MORE

  3. 3. Nutritional status and functional capacity in elderly people with hip fracture

    University dissertation from Linköping : Linköpings universitet

    Author : Margaretha Bachrach-Lindström; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; elderly people; functional capacity; hip fractnre; mental impairment; nutritional status; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : The aim was to study nutritional status and functional capacity in elderly men and women admitted to hospital with a hip fractnre, and to evaluate the effect of nutritional intervention and surgical method. A total of 176 patients participated in the study. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fatigue, functional status, health and pulmonary rehabilitation in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease

    University dissertation from Institutionen för medicin och vård

    Author : Kersti Theander; Karlstads universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; Linköpings universitet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nursing Science; Omvårdnad; INTERDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH AREAS Caring sciences Nursing; TVÄRVETENSKAPLIGA FORSKNINGSOMRÅDEN Vårdvetenskap Omvårdnad; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; fatigue; functional status; health; pulmonary rehabilitation; Fatigue impact scale; confirmatory factor analysis;

    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to describe fatigue, functional limitations due to fatigue and health in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), as well as to compare patients with individuals from the general population and to test if pulmonary rehabilitation can reduce fatigue and functional limitations, and thus improve health. A further aim was to test the Fatigue Impact Scale (FIS) among patients with COPD. READ MORE

  5. 5. Global functional association network inference and crosstalk analysis for pathway annotation

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics, Stockholm University

    Author : Christoph Ogris; Stockholms universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; biological networks; genome wide functional association networks; global gene association networks; gene networks; protein networks; functional association; functional coupling; network biology pathway analysis; pathway annotation; pathway enrichment; network-based enrichment; enrichment; biokemi med inriktning mot bioinformatik; Biochemistry towards Bioinformatics;

    Abstract : Cell functions are steered by complex interactions of gene products, like forming a temporary or stable complex, altering gene expression or catalyzing a reaction. Mapping these interactions is the key in understanding biological processes and therefore is the focus of numerous experiments and studies. READ MORE
