Gene-Based Analysis of Regionally Enriched Cortical Genes in GWAS Data Sets of Cognitive Traits and Psychiatric Disorders
Background: Despite its estimated high heritability, the genetic architecture leading to differences in cognitive performance remains poorly understood. Different cortical regions play important roles in normal cognitive ...
Umbilical vein constriction at the abdominal wall An ultrasound study in low risk pregnancies
(The University of Bergen, 2005-05-18)
The umbilical vein is the only vessel supplying the fetus with blood supplying oxygen and nutrients from the placenta. Case reports indicate that the fetal end of the umbilical cord is susceptible to mechanical ...

Genome-wide transcription analysis of histidine-related cataract in Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L)
(Molecular Vision, 2009-07-09)
Purpose: Elevated levels of dietary histidine have previously been shown to prevent or mitigate cataract formation in farmed Atlantic salmon (Salmo salar L). The aim of this study was to shed light on the mechanisms by ...
Faecal calprotectin concentrations in apparently healthy children aged 0-12 years in urban Kampala, Uganda: a community-based survey
(BioMed Central, 2011-02-02)
Background: Calprotectin is a calcium and zinc binding protein, abundant in neutrophils and is extremely stable in faeces. Faecal calprotectin is used as a non-specific marker for gastrointestinal inflammation. It has a ...

Left ventricular geometry and function in Tanzanian patients with hypertension and diabetes
(The University of Bergen, 2013-02-15)
From echocardiographic studies in hypertension, African Americans have been found to be more prone to develop cardiac target-organ damage than Caucasians. Hypertension is among the major upcoming health problems in Africa. ...

Environmental risk factors for multiple sclerosis. Results from animal and human studies on diet, vitamin D and Epstein-Barr virus
(The University of Bergen, 2010-01-19)
Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an immune mediated disease of the central nervous system (CNS). The aetiology is unknown, but environmental factors as well as multiple separate genetic loci contribute to the disease susceptibility. ...
Implementation of safety checklists in medicine. Not as simple as it sounds
