  1. 1. Hand function in rheumatoid arthritis

    Author : Berit Dellhag; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; hand function; test; precision grip; exercise; wax bath; activities of daily living; outcome; disability; longitudinal.;

    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is the most common chronic inflammatory rheumatic disease. Involvement of wrist and hand is a characteristic finding and occur at an early stage. Hand function is of great importance in performance of daily activities (ADL).Aims. READ MORE

  2. 2. Inflammation in asthma: relation to symptomatology, exacerbations and lung function

    Author : Ida Mogensen; Andrei Malinovschi; Christer Jansson; Mona Bafadhel; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Asthma; eosinophil; eosinophil cationic protein; eosinophil derived neurotoxin; periostin; neutrophil; fixed airflow obstruction; lung function; asthma attack; asthma symptom;

    Abstract : Asthma is an inflammatory disease in the airways. It is characterized by respiratory symptoms such as wheezing, variable airflow obstruction and impaired lung function development. A better understanding of the underlying inflammation is crucial in order to treat and prevent asthma symptoms and lung function deterioration. READ MORE

  3. 3. Large deviation techniques applied to three questions of when

    Author : Ola Hammarlid; Anders Martin-Löf; Ingmar Kaj; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Large deviations; first passage time; stopping time; rate function; convex barrier; fallacy of large numbers; utility function; insurance; ruin; variable premium; generalized Ornstein-Uhlenbeck process; Mathematical statistics; Matematisk statistik;

    Abstract : Large deviation techniques are used to solve three problems; when is a distant convex barrier passed, when to accept a sequence of gambles and when is the time of ruin. This work is the collection of four papers. READ MORE

  4. 4. Statistical and Dynamical Aspects of Intermediate Energy Nuclear Collisions

    Author : Roberta Ghetti; Fysiska institutionen; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; excitation function.; subthreshold pions; pion production; neutron cross-talk; correlation function; interferometry; intermittency; phase transition; thermal scaling; reducibility; multifragmentation; Heavy ion collisions; intermediate energy; Atomic and molecular physics; Atom- och molekylärfysik; Fysicumarkivet A:1997:Ghetti;

    Abstract : Studies of intermediate energy heavy ion reactions have revealed the existence of a number of reducibility and thermal scaling properties in nuclear multifragmentation. In particular, the probability of emitting n-fragments is reducible to the probability of emitting a single fragment through the binomial distribution. READ MORE

  5. 5. Methods for analysis of heart function

    Author : Håkan Kronander; KTH; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : There is a continuous demand for improvements in methods foranalysis of heart function. This thesis investigates both themeasurement of left ventricular (LV) volume for evaluating theheart function and the exercise electrocardiographic (ECG) testfor diagnosis of coronary artery disease (CAD).
