  1. 1. Obsessive-compulsive disorder, serotonin and oxytocin : treatment response and side effects

    Author : Mats B. Humble; Ingemar Engström; Lars von Knorring; Lars Kjellin; Lil Träskman-Bendz; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Adverse effects; Obsessive-compulsive disorder; Orgasm; Oxytocin; Randomised controlled trial; Rating scale; Response prediction; Serotonin; Serotonin uptake inhibitors; Sexual function; Psychiatry; Psykiatri;

    Abstract : Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), with a prevalence of 1-2 %, frequently leads a chronic course. Persons with OCD are often reluctant to seek help and, if they do, their OCD is often missed. This is unfortunate, since active treatment may substantially improve social function and quality of life. READ MORE

  2. 2. Biomarker discovery and assessment for prediction of kidney response after 177Lu-octreotate therapy

    Author : Emil Schüler; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; PRRT; somatostatin; radionuclide therapy; 177Lu-octreotate; scintigraphy; renal function; toxicity; kidney response; radiation biology; microarray; molecular biomarkers; ionizing radiation; miRNA; proteomics; transcriptional response;

    Abstract : Patients suffering from neuroendocrine tumors are oftentimes presented with spread disease at the time of diagnosis. Therapy using somatostatin analogs is today the only potentially curative treatment option for these patients. READ MORE

  3. 3. DNA Damage Response of Normal Epidermis in the Clinical Setting of Fractionated Radiotherapy : Evidence of a preserved low-dose hypersensitivity response

    Author : Fredrik Qvarnström; Ingela Turesson; Gunilla Enblad; Mats Harms-Ringdahl; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; DNA damage response; low-dose hypersensitivity; dose response; normal tissue; epidermis; keratinocyte; fractionated radiotherapy; DNA double strand break; DSB; foci; γH2AX; 53BP1; checkpoint; p21; apoptosis; mitosis; Oncology; Onkologi; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : Investigations of DNA damage response (DDR) mechanisms in normal tissues have implications for both cancer prevention and treatments. The accumulating knowledge about protein function and molecular markers makes it possible to directly trace and interpret cellular DDR in a tissue context. READ MORE

  4. 4. Disaster response for recovery : survivors experiences, and the use of disaster radio to promote health after natural disasters

    Author : Karin Hugelius; Annsofie Adolfsson; Mervyn Gifford; Per Örtenwall; Birgitta Wireklint Sundström; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; natural disaster; disaster response; disaster health; recovery; resilience;

    Abstract : Disasters occur all over the world, and affect a rising number of people. The health effects of natural disasters depend on several factors present before, during, and after a disaster event. However, there is only limited knowledge of survivors experiences, needs, and health after natural disasters. READ MORE

  5. 5. Function follows Form : Trait-based approaches to climate change effects on wetland vegetation and functioning

    Author : Helen Moor; Jon Norberg; Andrew Gonzalez; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Functional traits; Plant community ecology; Trait distributions; Wetlands; Ecosystem functioning; Ecosystem Services; Climate change; Dispersal; Metacommunity modelling; naturresurshushållning; Natural Resources Management;

    Abstract : Climate change and habitat fragmentation are altering the structure and functioning of plant communities world-wide. Understanding how, why and with what consequences are major challenges of ecology today. Trait-based approaches focus on functional rather than taxonomic identity to facilitate process-based explanation and prediction. READ MORE
