Cognitive changes in patients with acute phase psychosis - Effects of illicit drug use
Illicit drug use may influence cognition in non-affective psychosis. Previous studies have shown better cognition in psychosis with illicit drug use as compared to psychosis only. Possibly, illicit drug using patients have ...
Adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. A brain magnetic resonance spectroscopy study
(Frontiers Research Foundation, 2011-11-23)
Background: Impaired cognitive control in individuals with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may be related to a prefrontal cortical glutamatergic deficit. We assessed the glutamate level in the left and the ...
Vitamin D-status hos norske ettåringer og deres mødre og betydningen av sjømatinntak og kosttilskudd
(The University of Bergen, 2013-09-13)
Background: Vitamin D is necessary for normal bone development, cell differentiation and immune response. Existing data shows that a relatively large proportion of the population has insufficient vitamin D status. When ...
A Porcine Pneumothorax Model for Teaching Ultrasound Diagnostics
Objectives: Ultrasound (US) is a sensitive diagnostic tool for detecting pneumothorax (PTX), but methods are needed to optimally teach this technique outside of direct patient care. In training and research settings, ...
Sammenheng mellom inntak av FODMAPs og symptomer hos pasienter med inflammatorisk tarmsykdom i remisjonsfase som har irritabel tarm
(The University of Bergen, 2014-05-15)
Introduksjon: Tidligere studier har vist at pasienter med IBS (irritabel tarm-syndrom) kan ha god effekt av et kosthold med lite FODMAP (fermenterbare oligo- di- og monosakkarider, og polyoler). Studier har også vist ...

Defective i⁶A37 Modification of Mitochondrial and Cytosolic tRNAs Results from Pathogenic Mutations in TRIT1 and Its Substrate tRNA
Identifying the genetic basis for mitochondrial diseases is technically challenging given the size of the mitochondrial proteome and the heterogeneity of disease presentations. Using next-generation exome sequencing, we ...
Does a parental history of cancer moderate the associations between impaired health status in parents and psychosocial problems in teenagers: a HUNT study.

Characterisation of genomic imbalances in patients with mental retardation
(The University of Bergen, 2009-03-20)
A major cause of mental retardation is chromosomal abnormalities, but due to low sensitivity of conventional chromosomal karyotyping, these abnormalities may stay undetected, and the etiology of the impairment remains ...
Cancer Stem Cell-Related Markers in Normal and Neoplastic Oral Mucosa. A study on human samples and experimental models
(The University of Bergen, 2014-06-04)
The existence of cancer stem cells (CSCs) in solid cancers is still a controversial issue. Several markers were successfully used to enrich for cells with stem cell-like properties in oral squamous cell carcinoma (OSCC). ...
