  1. 1. Collaborative development of resource efficient district heating in Sweden

    Author : Sofia Persson; Olof Hjelm; Sara Gustafsson; Mikael Ottosson; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : An increased recovery of excess heat from industrial processes and thermal power generation could significantly reduce energy demands. Industrial excess heat-based district heating systems are generally considered resource efficient because they reduce the use of fossil fuels and the emissions of greenhouse gases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Improved methodologies for molecular detection and quantification of viruses in food

    Author : Sofia Persson; Patrik Ellström; Magnus Simonsson; Wim van der Poel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; foodborne virus; digital PCR; real-time PCR; validation; assay design; food safety; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Foodborne viruses such as norovirus, hepatitis A virus and hepatitis E virus cause a high burden of disease worldwide. Reverse transcription (RT) quantitative real-time PCR (qPCR) is the current standard method for monitoring viral contamination in the food chain. READ MORE

  3. 3. Polycystic ovary syndrome : Long-term health aspects

    Author : Sofia Persson; Evangelia Elenis; Inger Sundström Poromaa; Sahruh Turkmen; Elizabeth Nedstrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PCOS; Hyperandrogenism; Hirsutism; Fertility; Type 2 diabetes; Hypertension; Dyslipidaemia; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) is a common endocrine disorder among women of reproductive age, affecting many aspects of women’s health such as fertility, cardiovascular health and quality of life. However, less is known about later life stages, as well as the impact of hyperandrogenism and PCOS itself, apart from risks associated with excess body weight. READ MORE

    Abstract : Field studies encounter several complicating factors not studied in the models. Examples are oblique convergence, heterogeneous materials and thermal softening by intruding magmas. READ MORE

  5. 5. Lung mechanics and airway inflammation in murine models of asthma

    Author : Sofia Jonasson; Josephine Hjoberg; Hedenstierna Göran; Carl Persson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allergic asthma; airway inflammation; murine models; lung mechanics; forced oscillation technique; airway reactivity; deep inhalations; oxidative stress; nitric oxide; glucocorticoids.; Clinical physiology; Klinisk fysiologi; klinisk fysiologi; Clinical Physiology;

    Abstract : Allergic asthma is an inflammatory disease of the airways and is characterized by eosinophilic inflammation and increased airway reactivity. In the studies presented in this thesis, lung mechanics and measurements of airway reactivity were assessed in anaesthetized tracheostomized mice by using an animal ventilator (flexiVent®). READ MORE
