  1. 1. Nasal reactions and the school environment : Nasal patency and lavage biomarkers in relation to ventilation, cleaning and some indoor air pollutants

    Sammanfattning : In Sweden, 2 million persons are exposed to the school environment, and there has been reports on insufficient cleaning, and inadequate ventilation. The nasal mucosa is more easy to study than the lower airways, and rhinitis is common and possibly related to asthma. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Non-infectious rhinitis. Epidemiology and clinic

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Non-infectious rhinitis; Paper dust; Asthma; Quality of life; Acoustic rhinometry;

    Sammanfattning : We have assessed self-reported rhinitis in the absence of common cold, called "Non-infectious rhinitis", (NIR). The occurrence of NIR was investigated in a population sample of 2,044 individuals, aged 21-51, in an industrialised county in Sweden who answered a questionnaire relating to NIR and occupational exposure to potential irritants and sensitisers.

  4. 4. An 18 year Follow-up of Allergy Development : Findings of Nasal Markers of Allergic Inflammation

    Författare :Kristina Irander; Magnus P Borres; Pia Forsberg; Linköpings universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Sammanfattning : Background: In addition to the family history of allergy (FH), there is a need o find objective markers of allergy development as early in life as possible in order to focus preventive measurements on high risk infants. Rhinitis problems are common causes to morbidity in adults due to allergic as well as non-allergic mechanisms. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Cleft Size and Maxillary Arch Dimensions in Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate and Cleft Palate

    Författare :Erika Reiser; Anna Andlin-Sobocki; Valdemar Skoog; Bengt Gerdin; Arja Heliövaara; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Unilateral cleft lip and palate; cleft palate; cleft size; maxillary arch dimensions; crossbite; facial growth; nasal function; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery; Käkkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : The wide variation in infant maxillary morphology and cleft size of children with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) and isolated cleft palate (CP) raise concerns about their possible influences on treatment outcome. The studies in this thesis aimed to investigate the relation between cleft size in infancy and crossbite at 5 years of age (Paper I); the impact of primary surgery on cleft size and maxillary arch dimensions from infancy to 5 years of age (Paper II); associations between cleft size, maxillary arch dimensions and facial growth in both UCLP and CP children (Paper III); and, to evaluate the relation between infant cleft size and nasal airway size and function in adults treated for UCLP (Paper IV).
