  1. 1. Pre-eclampsia – Possible to Predict? : A Biochemical and Epidemiological Study of Pre-eclampsia

    Author : Marie Bolin; Helena Åkerud; Anna-Karin Wikström; Inger Sundström-Poromaa; Karel Marsal; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : pre-eclampsia; angiopoietin; histidine-rich glycoprotein; hyperemesis gravidarum; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Pre-eclampsia is a major cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality worldwide. A predictor of pre-eclampsia would enable intervention, close surveillance and timely delivery, and thereby reduce the negative consequences of the disorder. READ MORE

  2. 2. Nuclear medicine methods in idiopathic Parkinsonism : pre- and postsynaptic dopamine SPECT

    Author : Susanna Jakobson Mo; Katrine Åhlström Riklund; Anne Larsson Strömvall; Lars Forsgren; Rimma Axelsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nuclear medicine; SPECT; 123I-FP-Cit; 123I-IBZM; dopamine; parkinsonism; Parkinson’s disease; multiple system atrophy; progressive supranuclear palsy; Radiology; radiologi;

    Abstract : Background: Single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) with dopamine transporter (DAT) and dopamine D2 receptor (D2R) ligands can visualise the integrity of the nigrostriatal dopamine system. Parkinson’s disease (PD) and the atypical parkinsonian diseases (APD), progressive supranuclear palsy (PSP) and multiple system atrophy (MSA), have similar symptoms and dopamine depletion, but differ in pharmacological response and prognosis.

  3. 3. Pre-hospital Barriers to Emergency Obstetric Care : Studies of Maternal Mortality and Near-miss in Bolivia and Guatemala

    Author : Mattias Rööst; Birgitta Essén; Jerker Liljestrand; Veronique Filippi; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : pre-hospital barriers; maternal mortality; near-miss; traditional birth attendants; social marginalization; Bolivia; Guatemala; barreras pre-hospitalarias; mortalidad materna; morbilidad obstétrica severa; parteras tradicionales; marginalización social; Bolivia; Guatemala; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; International Health; Internationell hälsa;

    Abstract : Maternal mortality is a global health concern but inequalities in utilization of maternal health care are not clearly understood. Severe morbidity (near-miss) is receiving increased attention due to methodological difficulties in maternal mortality studies. READ MORE

  4. 4. Pre-school Children’s Food Habits and Meal Situation : Factors Influencing the Dietary Intake at Pre-school in a Swedish Municipality

    Author : Hanna Sepp; Margareta Wandel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; Domestic sciences; children; food; meals; nutrient; pre-school; teachers; Hushållsvetenskap; barn; mat; måltider; förskola; lärare; Domestic science and nutrition; Hushålls- och kostvetenskap;

    Abstract : A pre-school-based dietary survey, using seven-day records, focus group interviews and semi-structured interviews, was carried out in a suburban area of Stockholm. The overall objective was to investigate the individual food and nutrient intake of pre-school children at all meals during the day, as well as factors that might influence children’s intake.

  5. 5. Reduction of refining energy during mechanical pulping : using pressurised chip compression and sulphite pre-treatment

    Author : Erik Nelsson; Geoffrey Daniel; Mittuniversitetet; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet; []
    Keywords : Chip pre-treatment; double disc refiner; energy efficiency; Impressafiner; low dosage; Norway spruce; refining intensity; single disc refiner; sulphite pre-treatment; thermomechanical pulp;

    Abstract : The effects of pressurised compressive chip pre-treatment and low dosage sulphite pre-treatment were evaluated for production of thermomechanical pulp in mill scale trials using Norway spruce (Picea abies) at the Braviken paper mill (Holmen Paper AB, Sweden). The general aim of the study was to improve the energy efficiency during the production of mechanical pulps suitable for news and improved news grade papers. READ MORE
