  1. 1. The treatment of back and neck pain. Cost and utility

    Author : Elisabeth K Hansson; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : cost of illness; cost-utility; disability; disc surgery; low back pain; neck pain; predictors; quality of life; return to work; sick-listing;

    Abstract : Aims To analyze the costs and effects of treatments used to return persons sick-listed due to back or neck problems to work, and to perform a cost-utility analysis of such treatments.Study population and Methods Included were men and women between the ages of 18 and 59 years who were employed but sick-listed (100 %) for at least 28 days due to a low back or neck diagnosis.

  2. 2. Neck Injury Risk in Rear-End Impacts. Risk Factors and Neck Injury Criterion Evaluation with Madymo Modelling and Real-Life Data

    Author : Linda Eriksson; Chalmers tekniska högskola; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; injury criteria; rear-end impacts; neck injuries; mathematical modelling; injury probability; head restraints; BioRID; NICmax; risk factors; WAD; car seats;

    Abstract : Soft-tissue neck injuries, also termed AIS 1 neck injuries, are common after low-speed rear-end impacts. These injuries, which can be long-lasting, have increased in frequency during the past few decades. There is no consensus regarding injury mechanisms; however, injury criteria have been proposed, without yet being fully evaluated. READ MORE

  3. 3. Biomolecular markers in head and neck cancer

    Author : Eva Lindell Jonsson; Göran Laurell; Karin Nylander; Marika Nestor; Linda Marklund; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Head and neck cancer; Biomolecular markers; Radiation; Radiation-induced mucositis; Oral Tongue Squamous Cell Carcinoma; Metabolomics; EGFR; Hyaluronan; Mast cells; Neutrophils; Oto-Rhino-Laryngology; Oto-rhino-laryngologi;

    Abstract : Head and neck cancer is a heterogeneous group of tumours, of which certain subgroups such as cancer of the mobile tongue frequently are associated with a relatively poor prognosis due to the high risk of regional failure and mortality rates that haven’t improved in a significant way over the last 3 decades, despite advancements in both diagnostics and treatment.Today we lack means to assess the biological aggressiveness of each individual tumour, which varies largely.

  4. 4. Human brain function evaluated with rCBF-SPECT : memory and pain related changes and new diagnostic possibilities in Alzheimer’s disease

    Author : Torbjörn Sundström; Katrine Riklund; Rimma Danielsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; brain imaging; rCBF; SPECT; early diagnosis; brain atlas; HMPAO; Alzheimer´s disease; Whiplash; neuropsychological function; episodic memory; Diagnostic radiology; Diagnostisk radiologi;

    Abstract : The aim of this doctoral thesis was to study the influence of memory, pain, age and education on the regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF), i.e. brain function, in early Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in chronic neck pain patients in comparison to healthy controls and in healthy elderly per se.

  5. 5. Antibody-Based Radionuclide Targeting for Diagnostics and Therapy : Preclinical Studies on Head and Neck Cancer

    Author : Marika Nestor; Matti Anniko; Jörgen Carlsson; Hans Lundqvist; Vladimir Tolmachev; Matthew Robinson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Otorhinolaryngology; antibodies; radionuclide targeting; tumour targeting; therapy; diagnostics; immuno-PET; head and neck squamous cell carcinoma; Otorhinolaryngologi;

    Abstract : Antibody-based targeting techniques play an increasingly important role in cancer research. By targeting a structure that is abundant in tumour cells, but rare in healthy tissues, an antibody can mediate the delivery of radioactivity specifically to tumour cells in the body. READ MORE
