  2. 2. Weighing Animal Lives : A Critical Assessment of Justification and Prioritization in Animal-Rights Theories

    Author : Fredrik Karlsson; Carl-Henric Grenholm; Frans W. A. Brom; Per Sundman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; Animal rights; justification; prioritization; applied ethics; proper function; justice; rights language; vivisection; rights conflict; Ethics; Etik; Etik; Ethics;

    Abstract : The project underlying this dissertation aims at analyzing three pro-animal-rights theories, evaluating the theories, and outlining an alternative theoretical account of animal rights. The analytical categories are justification and function of animal rights, the definition of the right holder, and the resolution approach to rights conflict. READ MORE

  3. 3. Quantitative Genetics and Genome Structure in a Wild Population: the Use of a Great Reed Warbler Pedigree

    Author : Mikael Åkesson; Biologiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; genome mapping ; AFLP; microsatellite; synteny; heterochiasmy; recombination; chicken; great reed warbler ; bird; Genetics; cytogenetics; Genetik; cytogenetik; Animal ecology; trait correlation ; Djurekologi; animal model ; selection; Djurs anatomi och morfologi; animal morphology; Animal anatomy; heritability;

    Abstract : Long-term studies of birds play an important role in the understanding of quantitative traits in natural populations. The relative ease by which individual birds can be monitored and caught in the wild enable us collect detailed information from individuals throughout their life time, sometimes from several generations in a population.

  4. 4. Novel Treatment Modalities for High-Risk Neuroblastoma : Studies in Animal Models

    Author : Dieter Fuchs; Faranak Azarbayjani; Rolf Christofferson; Sven Påhlman; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : LANTBRUKSVETENSKAPER; AGRICULTURAL SCIENCES; neuroblastoma; bevacizumab; SU11248; GMX1778; GMX1777; animal model; Medicine; Medicin;

    Abstract : Neuroblastoma, the most common extracranial solid tumor of childhood, is a heterogeneous tumor. In some patients, the tumor can go into spontaneous regression and disappear whereas other patients have rapidly growing tumors with a poor prognosis. READ MORE

  5. 5. An animal model of sport related concussive brain injury

    Author : Hayde Bolouri; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : animal model; football; concussion; brain injury; neuropathology; cognitive function;

    Abstract : A new animal model for concussion of the type seen in professional football was developed, since current animal models did not simulate these conditions. The model is characterized by a high velocity-low mass impact to the head of a freely moving object. Structural damages and functional effects of the model have been investigated. READ MORE
