  1. 1. Management and Treatment of Organotin and Metal Contaminated Dredged Sediment

    Author : Anna Norén; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : metals; tributyltin TBT ; life cycle assessment LCA ; multicriteria analysis MCA ; stabilization and solidification S S ; copper Cu ; electrolysis; dredged sediment; Fenton’s reagent; zinc Zn ;

    Abstract : Modern society is dependent on international trade and most traded goods are transported by sea. To enable this, regular dredging must be done to maintain water depth in ports and waterways, resulting in large quantities of often contaminated sediment that must be handled. READ MORE

  2. 2. Assessing environmental and contaminant stressors in a benthic amphipod

    Author : Therese Jacobson; Brita Sundelin; Tamara Galloway; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Multiple stressors; Reproduction; Temperature; Food; Parasites; Fenarimol; PFOS; TBT; Endocrine disruption; Ecdysteroids; Microsporidia; Microcosm; Crustacea; Amhipoda; Monoporeia affinis; Biology; Biologi; tillämpad miljövetenskap; Applied Environmental Science;

    Abstract : Organisms in the aquatic environment encounter numerous stressors throughout their lifespan. Some of them are biotic such as food availability, predators and parasites. Others are abiotic and include shifting salinity and temperature change among others. READ MORE

  3. 3. Occurrence and environmental risk assessment of antifouling paint biocides from leisure boats

    Author : Maria Lagerström; Ann-Kristin Eriksson Wiklund; Erik Ytreberg; Kent Salo; Andrew Turner; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Antifouling paint; XRF; leisure boat; recreational boating; copper; zinc; tributyltin; organotin compounds; risk assessment; biocide; metals; release rate; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : The use of biocidal antifouling (AF) paints is the most common way to prevent fouling on leisure boat hulls. The main aim of this thesis was to investigate the pathways through which AF biocides, past and present, may reach the environment through their use on leisure boats and to improve the risk assessment of biocidal AF paints intended for amateur use.

  4. 4. Apoptosis in chronic inflammation, with specific reference to airway disease

    Author : Malin Müller; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Apoptosis; asthma; chronic inflammation; lung; sarcoidosis; tributyltin TBT ;

    Abstract : Mechanisms governing the normal resolution processes of inflammation in the lung are poorly understood, yet their elucidation may lead to a greater understanding of the pathogenesis of several pulmonary inflammatory disorders. The elimination of activated lymphocytes by apoptosis is one prerequisite for resolution, and knowledge concerning the role of apoptosis in chronic inflammation is still far from complete. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of the mitochondrion in organotin-induced T-cell apoptosis

    Author : Hélène Stridh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Apoptosis plays a central role in the development and the function of the immune system. The cell death program can, however, be inappropriately activated or suppressed under pathological conditions. Several toxins have been shown to interfere with intra-thymic processes, thereby contributing to autoimmune disorders. READ MORE
