  1. 1. Essays in Environmental Management and Economics: Public Health, Risk and Strategic Environmental Assessment

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Univ., Department of Economics, School of Business, Economics and Law

    Author : Daniel Slunge; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; SOCIAL SCIENCES; risk; risk perception; public health; strategic environmental assessment; institutions; governance; willingness to pay; protective behaviour; vector-borne diseases; ticks; TBE; tick-borne encephalitis; Lyme borreliosis; climate change;

    Abstract : Abstract Current large-scale environmental and climate change leads to the emergence of new and potentially dramatic risks for individuals and societies. The welfare costs associated with these risks largely depend on our ability to take them into account in decision-making and adapt to new circumstances. READ MORE

  2. 2. The Origin of the Genus Flavivirus and the Ecology of Tick-Borne Pathogens

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : John H.-O. Pettersson; Uppsala universitet.; [2013]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Flavivirus; Virus dating; Molecular dating; Biogeography; Ixodes ricinus; Minimum infection rate; TBE; Tick-borne encephalitis virus; Rickettsia helvetica; Anaplasma phagocytophilum; Infection prevalence; RT-PCR; Biologi med inriktning mot systematik; Biology with specialization in Systematics;

    Abstract : The present thesis examines questions related to the temporal origin of the Flavivirus genus and the ecology of tick-borne pathogens. In the first study, we date the origin and divergence time of the Flavivirus genus. It has been argued that the first flaviviruses originated after the last glacial maximum. READ MORE

  3. 3. Tick-borne encephalitis : clinical and pathogenetic aspects

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Huddinge

    Author : Auksė Mickienė; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tick-borne encephalitis;

    Abstract : The aims of this study were to investigate the morbidity associated with tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) in the acute stage and at long-term follow-up, to identify the possible host risk factors for development of clinical TBE with special reference to the role of the genetic polymorphism, and to investigate neurochemical changes in the brain induced by TBE virus (TBEV) and their possible role on severity of TBE with special reference to endogenous kynurenic acid (KYNA). Paper I: Of 250 consecutively admitted patients with central nervous system (CNS) infections treated during a 1-year period, all 133 patients with TBE participated in the prospective follow-up study.

  4. 4. Tick-borne encephalitis : on pathogenesis and prognosis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, false

    Author : Göran Günther; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1997]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Human; tick-borne encephalitis; viral; meningo-encephalitis; cerebrospinal fluid; PCR; cytokines; immunoglobulin; SPECT; technetium-99m-HMPAO;

    Abstract : The general aim of the five studies presented in this thesis was to investigate the clinical oucome and prognosis and factors of importance for the pathogenesis of TBE compared to other aseptic meningo encephalitis. In a prospective study 149 patients presenting with clinical symptoms of acute viral meningo-encephalitis between June 1991 and December 1993 were included. READ MORE

  5. 5. Tick-borne encephalitis : prognosis, immunization and virus strain characterization

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine at Huddinge University Hospital

    Author : Mats Haglund; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; tick-borne encephalitis; tick-borne encephalitis virus; human; clinical picture; sequelae; virus characterization; phylogeny; vaccination; neutralization;

    Abstract : The aims were to investigate the morbidity associated with tick-borne encephalitis (TBE) both in the acute phase and at long-term follow-up, to develop a rapid neutralization test for confirmation of TBEV-specific antibody response and to study the serological response after TBE-vaccination and, finally, to characterize Swedish human TBEV isolates. The morbidity was studied in one retrospective follow-up study of consecutive TBE-patients, treated during a 10-year period (Paper 1) and in one prospective study of TBE-patients with aseptic meningoencephalitis of non- TBE etiology as a reference group (Paper II).
