  1. 1. HIV and Infant Feeding : Operational Challenges of Achieving Safe Infant Feeding Practices

    Författare :Tanya Doherty; Lars-Åke Persson; Ted Greiner; Debra Jackson; Per Ashorn; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :International health; HIV AIDS; Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV; infant feeding; child health; qualitative research; cohort study; programme evaluation; nutrition; Internationell hälsa;

    Sammanfattning : This thesis assesses the uptake of the national Prevention of Mother to Child Transmission of HIV (PMTCT) programme in South Africa, and the challenges of achieving safe infant feeding practices in the context of HIV. The research studies contained in this thesis utilised a variety of quantitative and qualitative research methods in order to provide a full understanding of the challenges of moving from efficacy to effectiveness in PMTCT programmes.

    Sammanfattning : Background: Early nutrition is fundamental to growth and development. Infants develop long lasting food preferences very early in life from food exposures when the brain is impressionable and sensory pathways are receptive. LÄS MER

  3. 3. The role of HMG-coenzyme A reductase (HMGCR) and statin medication in the Central Nervous System : Cognitive Functions, Metabolism, Feeding and Sleep Behaviour

    Författare :Ahmed Alsehli; Helgi B. Schiöth; Michael J. Williams; Heinrich Dircksen; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Statin; cardiovascular disease; HMGCR; PCSK9; sleep; insomnia; circadian; Chronotype; feeding;

    Sammanfattning : Millions of people are currently on statin medications (HMGCR inhibitors) to prevent cardiovascular diseases. Despite considerable central nervous system expression, little is known about HMGCR function in the brain. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Deposit-feeding in benthic macrofauna : Tracer studies from the Baltic Sea

    Författare :Lars Byrén; Ragnar Elmgren; Lisa A. Levin; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Deposit-feeding; Macrofauna; Baltic Sea; Terrestrial; freshwater and marine ecology; Terrestisk; limnisk och marin ekologi;

    Sammanfattning : A low content of organic matter, which is largely refractory in nature, is characteristic of most sediments, meaning that aquatic deposit-feeders live on a very poor food source. The food is derived mainly from sedimenting phytodetritus, and in temperate waters like the Baltic Sea, from seasonal phytoplankton blooms. LÄS MER
