  1. 1. Inflammatory mechansims in pulmonary sarcoidosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Mary Berlin; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adhesion molecules; alveolitis; bronchoalveolar lavage; bronchial hyperreactivity; extracellular matrix molecules; extrinsic allergic alveolitis; fibrosis; HLA-DR; sarcoidosis; TCR;

    Abstract : INFLAMMATORY MECHANISMS IN PULMONARY SARCOIDOSIS by Mary Berlin Department of Medicine, Division of Respiratory Medicine, Karolinska Hospital, Karolinska Institute, Stockholm, Sweden Pulmonary sarcoidosis is an inflammatory disorder of unknown aetiology, characterised by an accumulation of CD4+ T-cells in the alveolar compartment and by granuloma formation and varying degrees of interstitial fibrosis. The initial clinical presentation may either be acute with fever, malaise, arthritis and/or erythema nodosum or insidious with cough, dyspnea, tiredness, and loss of weight. READ MORE

  2. 2. Urea and Non-Protein Nitrogen Metabolism in Infants With Special Reference to the Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS)

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Mary George; Uppsala universitet.; [2001]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; Urea; non-protein nitrogen metabolism; SIDS; drinking water nitrate concentration; carbon dioxide production; Kirurgi; MEDICINE Surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi; anestesiologi; Anaesthesiology;

    Abstract : A large amount of non-protein nitrogen, in the form of urea and ammonium, is present in human breastmilk; however its physiological role in the infant is as yet not fully understood. It has been hypothesized that an insufficient enteric metabolism of urea could play a role in the sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). READ MORE

  3. 3. Costs of foraging in a dry tropical environment

    University dissertation from Lund University

    Author : Mary Molokwu; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; foraging behavior; seasonality; predation risk; granivorous birds; food availability; water; temperature; savannah; dry tropics; energy; secondary compounds; diet selection;

    Abstract : This study evaluates the costs associated with foraging for birds in a savannah woodland area in central Nigeria. Specifically, it looks at the following questions: 1) how does seasonal variability in food and water availability affect the value of resources to birds in dry environments? 2) Does proximity to water affect foraging decisions? What implication will this have in the management of savannah birds? 3) Are tropical birds mostly affected by metabolic or predation costs? 4) What factors affect diet selection in birds and how? 5) How are birds adapted to hot dry environments? I carried out experiments in the field and in an aviary and provided artificial food patches, consisting of feeding trays with seeds mixed in sand or pebbles (in the aviary study). READ MORE

  4. 4. Quality assurance for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) in radiotherapy

    University dissertation from Umeå : Department of radiation sciences, Umeå university

    Author : Mary Adjeiwaah; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Magnetic resonance imaging; Radiotherapy; geometric distortions; patient-induced susceptibilities MR-only; radiofysik; radiofysik;

    Abstract : Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) utilizes the magnetic properties of tissues to generate image-forming signals. MRI has exquisite soft-tissue contrast and since tumors are mainly soft-tissues, it offers improved delineation of the target volume and nearby organs at risk. READ MORE

  5. 5. Word formation in BSL

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Linguistics, Stockholm University

    Author : Mary Brennan; Stockholms universitet.; [1990]
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Sign Language; teckenspråk;

    Abstract : This study explores the interlocking strands of productive morphology in British Sign Language (BSL), the language used by the Deaf Community in Britain. It examines how users of the language, 'signers', are able to create 'new* lexical items on a regular everyday basis. READ MORE
