Biomedical Image Processing in the Study of Living Cells
(The University of Bergen, 2008-12-09)
Increased plasma colloid osmotic pressure facilitates the uptake of therapeutic macromolecules in a xenograft tumour model
Elevated tumor interstitial fluid pressure (TIFP) is a characteristic of most solid tumors. Clinically, TIFP may hamper the uptake of chemotherapeutic drugs into the tumor tissue reducing their therapeutic efficacy. In ...
Melanoma brain metastatis. Animal models, detection and therapy interventions
(The University of Bergen, 2013-12-11)
A randomized double blind comparison of short-term duodenally administrated whale and seal blubber oils in patients with inflammatory bowel disease and joint pain
Compared with soy oil, 10 days treatment with seal oil (SO), 10 mL×3 daily, self-administrated through a nasoduodenal feeding tube, relieves joint pain in patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). This randomized, ...
Cytokines - possible biomarkers for headache syndromes, with special reference to migraine
(The University of Bergen, 2011-05-31)
Background: The trigeminovascular theory suggests that neurogenic inflammation and cytokines play an important role in migraine pathophysiology. Previous studies have linked different cytokines to migraine pathogenesis, ...
Impact of marine oils in inflammatory bowel disease and psoriatic arthritis. With focus on effects of seal oil and whale oil on joint pain
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-25)
The Western diet has changed significantly over the last century, e.g. by an increased ratio of omega-6 (n-6) to n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA), particularly due to an increase in the use of vegetable oils like ...
Preparing for an influenza pandemic: Re-evaluating the use of the whole inactivated virus vaccine formulation. –A comparison of the immune responses after intramuscular or intranasal immunization with an influenza H5N1 whole inactivated virus vaccine in a murine model.
(The University of Bergen, 2009-10-22)
Influenza is a highly contagious respiratory disease which infects millions of people every year around the world. Influenza viruses undergo continuous antigen change and annual vaccination is an effective prophylactic ...
Reduced Joint Pain after Short-term Duodenal Administration of Seal Oil in Patients with Inflammatory Bowel Disease: Comparison with Soy Oil
(Taylor & Francis, 2004)
Background: Rheumatic joint pain is a common extraintestinal complication of inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Because the high ratio of n-6 to n-3 fatty acids (FAs) of the Western diet might promote rheumatic disorders, ...
Exploring and exploiting the potential of pelvic IMRT to spare the bowel
