  1. 1. Quantitative Bioanalysis : Liquid separations coupled to targeted mass spectrometric measurements of bioactive compounds

    Author : Björn Arvidsson; Jonas Bergquist; Magnus Wetterhall; Gérard Hopfgartner; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Analytical chemistry; Method development; Enhanced microdialysis; Column switching; Liquid chromatography; Capillary electrophoresis; Electrospray ionization; Mass spectrometry; Triple quadrupole; Time-of-flight; Quantitation; Validation; Analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : Performing quantitative analysis of targeted bioactive compounds in biological samples, such as blood plasma, cerebrospinal fluid or extracts from pig liver, put high demands on the ruggedness of the method acquiring the results. In addition to the complexity of the sample matrix, the bioactive compounds targeted for analysis usually have low levels of natural abundance, further increasing the demand on the analytical method sensitivity.

    Abstract : This thesis develops and evaluates statistical methods for different types of genetic analyses, including quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis, genome-wide association study (GWAS), and genomic evaluation. The main contribution of the thesis is to provide novel insights in modeling genetic variance, especially via random effects models. READ MORE

  3. 3. Pharmacometric Models to Improve Treatment of Tuberculosis

    Author : Elin M Svensson; Mats O Karlsson; Maria C Kjellsson; Ulrika S H Simonsson; N. L’Ntshotsholé (Shasha) Jumbe; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; population approach; nonlinear mixed-effects models; multidrug-resistant tuberculosis; bedaquiline; antiretroviral; drug-drug interactions; time-to-event; albumin; Klinisk farmakologi; Clinical Pharmacology;

    Abstract : Tuberculosis (TB) is the world’s most deadly infectious disease and causes enormous public health problems. The comorbidity with HIV and the rise of multidrug-resistant TB strains impede successful therapy through drug-drug interactions and the lack of efficient second-line treatments. READ MORE

  4. 4. Quantitative imaging with PET : performance and applications of 76Br, 52Fe, 110mIn and 134La

    Author : Mark Lubberink; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Oncology; PET; Positron Emission Tomography; Quantitative Imaging; bromine; iron; indium; lanthanum; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; Onkologi;

    Abstract : The use of positron emission tomography (PET) has so far mainly been limited to a few nuclides with short half-lives such as 11C and 18F. Certain applications require nuclides with longer half-lives, such as 76Br and 52Fe. READ MORE

  5. 5. Quantitative image analysis : a focus on automated characterization of structures in optical microscopy of iron ore pellets

    Author : Frida Nellros; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Signalbehandling; Signal Processing;

    Abstract : Sintering occurs in many types of material such as iron, ceramics and snow, typically during thermal treatment, and aects the material properties, particularly the strength, by the bonding of particles into a coherent structure. In order to improve the mechanical strength in magnetite iron ore pellets it is important to be able to characterize and quantitatively measure the degree of sintering and features that impact the process of sintering.
