  1. 21. Treatment technologies for human faeces and urine

    Author : Charles Niwagaba; Sveriges lantbruksuniversitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis examines simple, cheap, environmentally friendly and resource efficient technologies for the treatment of source-separated human faeces and urine to enable safe recycling of their plant nutrients for plant production in developing countries. Composting of faeces-to-food waste (F:FW) in wet weight mix ratios of 1:0, 3:1 and 1:1 was studied in 78 L reactors insulated by 25 mm styrofoam; and of F:FW in wet volume/weight ratios of 1:0, 1:1 and 1:3 in 216 L reactors insulated by 75 mm styrofoam.

  2. 22. Social determinants of leisure time physical activity, body mass index, and acute myocardial infarction

    University dissertation from Mohammad Ali, Sadiq

    Author : Sadiq Mohammad Ali; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2006]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; epidemiology; Folkhälsa; epidemiologi; Public health; acute myocardial infarction; obesity; overweight; underweight; leisure time physical activity; health locus of control; social capital; Socioeconomic status; psychosocial work conditions;

    Abstract : There are substantial socioeconomic differences in cardiovascular morbidity and mortality in most western countries. Socioeconomic differences in cardiovascular risk factors (obesity/overweight, tobacco smoking, leisure time physical activity, dietary habits) are correspondingly large. READ MORE

  3. 23. Aliphatic Polyesters for Soft Tissue Engineering : Development from Conventional Organometallic to Novel Enzymatic Catalysis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Rajiv Kumar Srivastava; KTH.; [2007]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; aliphatic polyester; 1; 5-dioxepan-2-one; ε-caprolactone; L-lactide; D-lactide; D; L-lactide; enzyme; lipase CA; lipase PS; NATURAL SCIENCES Chemistry Organic chemistry Polymer chemistry; NATURVETENSKAP Kemi Organisk kemi Polymerkemi;

    Abstract : The development of macromolecules with defined structure and properties, aimed specifically for biomedical applications, has resulted in diverse biodegradable polymers with advanced architectures. Among them, aliphatic polyesters synthesized by ring-opening polymerization (ROP) of lactones and lactides have a leading position due to their good mechanical properties, hydrolyzability and biocompatibility.

  4. 24. Cardiovaskular risk factors and complications in type 1 and type 2 diabetes

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Katarina Eeg-Olofsson; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Diabetes; Cardiovascular diseases; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Patients with diabetes have increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and mortality compared to the general population. The aim of this work was to describe the clinical characteristics and risk factors in patients with type 1 diabetes, and also to investigate the association between glycaemic control and CVD in type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and to analyse the association between BMI, overweight and obesity, and CVD in type 2 diabetes.

  5. 25. Obesity and Common Surgical Disorders, Effects on Incidence and Complications

    University dissertation from Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Author : Anders Rosemar; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2011]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obesity; complications; BMI; diverticular disease; groin hernia; postoperative complications; groin hernia repair; surgery; incidence;

    Abstract : Background: Overweight and obesity are becoming increasingly common, not only in the developed countries but also in developing countries. It is well documented that obesity increases the risk of several medical disorders; however, less is known of effects of obesity on common surgical disorders and treatments. READ MORE
