  1. 1. Therapy-resistant enuresis In search of new therapies and prognostic markers

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Elisabet Lundmark; Tryggve Nevéus; Arne Stenberg; Sievert Lindström; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Nocturnal enuresis; Reboxetine; Antidepressants; Desmopressin; Voiding chart; Pediatrik; Pediatrics;

    Abstract : A large minority of children with enuresis do not respond to treatment with either desmopressin or the enuresis alarm. Anticholinergics have not proven as successful as expected. The fourth evidence-based treatment of enuresis, the tricyclic antidepressant imipramine, is cardiotoxic when overdosed, which has led to diminished use. READ MORE

  2. 2. Novel oil resistant cellulosic materials

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Christian Aulin; Lars Wågberg; Derek Gray; [2009]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; oleophobic; MFC; cellulose; oil resistant; contact angle; XPS; SEM; TECHNOLOGY Chemical engineering Chemical process and manufacturing engineering Cellulose and paper engineering; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Kemiteknik Kemisk process- och produktionsteknik Cellulosa- och pappersteknik;

    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

  3. 3. 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]

    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. MRSA and other resistant bacteria : prevalence, patient and staff experiences, wounds and infection control

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet

    Author : Helene Andersson; Bjöörn Fossum; Christina Lindholm; Mats Kalin; Eva Johansson; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MRSA; VRE; ESBL; Colonization; Infection control; Wound; Patient experiences; Staff experiences; Nursing care; Qualitative interview; Qualitative content analysis;

    Abstract : Antibiotic resistance has become a major and serious global problem in healthcare. Limited treatment options for infections caused by these organisms can lead to increased morbidity and mortality. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modelling and Simulation to Improve Antimalarial Therapy

    University dissertation from Upppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Jesmin Permala Lohy Das; Mats Karlsson; Martin Bergstrand; Joel Tarning; Mads Krielgaard; [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.
