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 ...
Ultrasound Detection of Pneumothorax. Development of a porcine pneumothorax model to assess and teach lung ultrasound diagnostics.
(The University of Bergen, 2013-10-21)
Background: Pneumothorax (PTX) is common after blunt chest injury, and failure to diagnose and rapidly treat an enlarging PTX may cause patient death. The anteroposterior supine chest x-ray (CXR) is the least sensitive ...
Mass spectral profiling and multivariate analysis for detection of biomarker signatures. Application to multiple sclerosis
(The University of Bergen, 2010-10-28)
Mass spectrometry based protein profiling and biomarker discovery has given rise to the field of clinical proteomics. The underlying assumption is that proteins can provide information of diagnostic or therapeutic value ...
Agitation and use of restraint in nursing home residents with dementia. Prevalence, correlates and the effects of care staff training
(The University of Bergen, 2009-01-22)
Background: Dementia is one of the most prevalent syndromes in the elderly population, and over half of people with dementia live in long-term care homes. 80% of residents in nursing homes have dementia, the majority ...
Proteomic analysis of formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded glomeruli suggests depletion of glomerular filtration barrier proteins in two-kidney one-clip hypertensive rats
(Oxford University Press, 2014-08-16)
Background It is well known that hypertension may cause glomerular damage, but the molecular mechanisms involved are still incompletely understood. Methods In the present study, we used formalin-fixed paraffin-embedded ...
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). ...
Increased chromogranin A cell density in the large intestine of patients with irritable bowel syndrome after receiving dietary guidance
The large intestine contains five types of endocrine cells that regulate its functions by sensing its luminal contents and releasing specific hormones. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a common marker for the gastrointestinal ...
