  1. 1. Essays on the Assumption of Proportional Hazards in Cox Regression

    Author : Inger Persson; Kenneth Carling; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Informatics; computer and systems science; Proportional hazards; Cox regression; Proportionality assumption; Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap; Informatics; computer and systems science; Informatik; data- och systemvetenskap; statistik; Statistics;

    Abstract : This thesis consists of four papers about the assumption of proportional hazards for the Cox model in survival analysis. The first paper compares the hazard ratio estimated from the Cox model to an exact calculation of the geometric average of the hazard ratio when the underlying assumption of proportional hazards is false, i.e. READ MORE

  2. 2. Removal of Inorganic Anionic Pollutants from Water using Adsorption Technology

    Author : Eva Kumar; William Hogland; Marcia Marques; Mika Sillanpää; Kenneth M. Persson; Linnéuniversitetet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Water treatment; adsorption; inorganic anionic pollutants; granular ferric hydroxide GFH ; nano-alumina; adsorption isotherms; adsorption kinetics; modeling.; Miljövetenskap; Environmental Science; Environmental technology; Miljöteknik;

    Abstract : In the era of urbanization, industrialization and population growth, groundwater and drinking water sources are getting adversely polluted due to the addition of different toxic contaminants including inorganic anionic pollutants. The inorganic anions are of serious concern due to their adverse health effects on humans, even when present at very low concentrations in water. READ MORE

  3. 3. The Role of Chlamydia pneumoniae-induced Platelet Activation in Cardiovascular Disease : In vitro and In vivo studies

    Author : Hanna Kälvegren; Torbjörn Bengtsson; Arina Richter; Erik Kihlström; Kenneth Persson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Chlamydia pneumoniae; Platelet; atherosclerosis; Infection; LDL-oxidation; Percutaneous coronary intervention; Cardiovascular disease; Serotonin; Reactive oxygen species production; Pharmacology; Farmakologi;

    Abstract : The common risk factors for atherosclerosis, such as obesity, high cholesterol levels, sedentary lifestyle, diabetes and high alcohol intake, only explain approximately 50% of cardiovascular disease events. It is thereby important to identify new mechanisms that can stimulate the process of atherosclerosis. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chlamydia pneumoniae in Aortic Valve Sclerosis and Thoracic Aortic Disease : Aspects of Pathogenesis and Therapy

    Author : Christina Nyström-Rosander; Kenneth Persson; Uppsala universitet; []
