    Abstract : The aim of this study has been to prepare and characterise oil resistant cellulosic materials, ranging from model surfaces to papers and aerogels. The cellulosic materials were made oil resistant by chemical and topographic modifications, based on surface energy, surface roughness and barrier approaches. READ MORE

  2. 2. Vaccination against drug-resistant HIV

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Microbiology and Tumor Biology Center (MTC)

    Author : Andreas Boberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2005]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HIV; DNA vaccine; drug-resistance;

    Abstract : As the use of antiretroviral drug treatment increases worldwide, development of drug resistant HIV phenotypes is expected to increase. The frequency of drug- or multi-drug resistant virus transmitted in primary infections will consequently be more abundant. Logical vaccine targets in drug-resistant strains are reverse transcriptase and protease. READ MORE

  4. 4. Modelling and Simulation to Improve Antimalarial Therapy

    University dissertation from Upppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jesmin Permala Lohy Das; Uppsala universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; pharmacometrics; pharmacokinetics; pharmacodynamics; malaria; artemisinin; weekly dosing; resistant; pregnant populations; intermittent preventive therapy; parasite clearance; day 3 positivity; nomogram; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi; Pharmacokinetics and Drug Therapy; Farmakokinetik och läkemedelsterapi;

    Abstract : The introduction of artemisinin-based combination therapy (ACT) substantially reduced malaria-related mortality and morbidity during the past decade. Despite the widespread use of ACT, there is still a considerable knowledge gap with regards to safety, efficacy and pharmacokinetic properties of these drugs, particularly in vulnerable populations like children and pregnant women.

  5. 5. Vaccination against drug-resistant HIV

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Microbiology, Tumor and Cell Biology

    Author : Andreas Boberg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Combinations of antiretroviral drugs against human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) have effectively postponed the progression to acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). However, an effective vaccine against HIV-1 would undisputedly be the optimal protective strategy against the virus, especially in resource-poor settings. READ MORE
