    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NCD; cardiovascular disease; community intervention; prevention; community empowerment; middle-incom countries; folkhälsa; Public health;

    Abstract : Background: Non communicable diseases (NCD) are recognized as a major burden of human health globally, especially in low and middle-income countries including Indonesia. This thesis addresses a community intervention program utilizing a community empowerment approach to study whether this is a reasonable strategy to control NCD. READ MORE

  2. 2. Bio-Nano Interactions Synthesis, Functionalization and Characterization of Biomaterial Interfaces

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Yixiao Cai; Xia Wei; Mikael Karlsson; Martin Andersson; [2016]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Bioactive surfaces; nanocrystalline diamond; hydroxyapatite; protein secondary structure; protein absorption; auditory neurons; single crystalline rutile; nano morphology; surface functionalisation; in vitro biomineralisation; translucent nano-ceramics; bio-window material; material characterisation.; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science;

    Abstract : Current strategies for designing biomaterials involve creating materials and interfaces that interact with biomolecules, cells and tissues.  This thesis aims to investigate several bioactive surfaces, such as nanocrystalline diamond (NCD), hydroxyapatite (HA) and single crystalline titanium dioxide, in terms of material synthesis, surface functionalization and characterization.

    Abstract : Background: Non-communicable diseases (NCDs) are the leading causes of morbidity and mortality among adults in Vietnam. Little is known about the magnitude of socioeconomic inequalities in NCDs and other NCD-related factors in urban areas, in particular among the poor living in slum areas. READ MORE

  4. 4. Intervertebral disc degeneration in dogs

    University dissertation from ; Dept. of Clinical Sciences, Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences & Utrecht University

    Author : Niklas Bergknut; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2010]

    Abstract : Back pain is common in both dogs and humans, and is often associated with intervertebral disc (IVD) degeneration. The IVDs are essential structures of the spine and degeneration can ultimately result in diseases such as IVD herniation or spinal instability. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Many Facets of bicoid Gradient Formation in Drosophila

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Xiaoli Cai; [2017]
    Keywords : Drosophila; bicoid; gradient formation; ARTS model; cortical microtubule; drug;

    Abstract : In Drosophila, the Bicoid protein servers as paradigm as the first identified morphogen, whose concentration gradient provides the initial positional information in the anterior half of the embryo. There, it differentially activates segmentation genes, in particular the gap genes. READ MORE
