  1. 1. Evaluation of patient related factors influencing outcomes after total hip replacement

    Författare :Max Gordon; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Basic patient factors such as age, sex, and comorbidities are poorly understood in the context of re-operation rates and patient-reported outcome measures after total hip replacement (THR) surgery. Aims: The aims of this thesis were to investigate: 1. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Outcome Measures of Functioning and Physical Activity in Patients with Low Back Pain - Exemplified in Patients Who Undergo Lumbar Fusion Surgery

    Författare :Max Jakobsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Health outcome assessment; Reliability; Validity; Responsiveness; Minimal important change; Accelerometry; Predictors; Prognostic factors; Lumbar spine surgery;

    Sammanfattning : INTRODUCTION: Chronic low back pain (LBP) can negatively affect health in terms of disability and decreased levels of functioning and physical activity. Chronic LBP due to degenerative disc disease (DDD) is a subgroup of LBP for which lumbar fusion surgery (LFS) is a treatment option. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Molecular mechanisms of synaptic transmission and plasticity in spinal sensory pathways

    Författare :Max Larsson; Neurofysiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; neurophysiology; neuropsychology; Neurology; electron microscopy; synaptic plasticity; synapse; pain; spinal cord; hyperalgesia; Neurologi; neuropsykologi; neurofysiologi;

    Sammanfattning : An intense, potentially tissue-damaging (noxious) stimulus may lead to enhanced pain sensation of subsequent noxious stimuli (hyperalgesia) and to the perceiving of innocuous stimuli as painful (allodynia). This is thought to result to a large extent from strengthening of synapses established by primary afferent fibers onto spinal cord dorsal horn neurons. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Changing attitudes to Swedish wolf policy : wolf return, rural areas, and political alienation

    Författare :Max Eriksson; Camilla Sandström; Göran Ericsson; Katarina Roos; Simon Matti; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :SOCIAL SCIENCES; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; attitude change; political alienation; urban-rural conflict; governance; wolf policy; statskunskap; political science;

    Sammanfattning : In 1966, the grey wolf was listed as a protected species in Sweden. Since then, the Swedish wolf population has increased in size, making human-wolf encounters more common, particularly in rural areas. Previous qualitative research has shown that segments of the rural population perceive the wolf to be incompatible with traditional rural life. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Arrayed identification of DNA signatures

    Författare :Max Käller; Lundeberg Joakim; Mats Nilsson; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; apyrase; allele-specific extension; competitive hybridization; DNA sequencing; genotyping; human papillomavirus HPV ; MC1R; microarray; mutation; p53; protease; Bioengineering; Bioteknik;

    Sammanfattning : In this thesis techniques are presented that aim to determine individual DNA signatures by controlled synthesis of nucleic acid multimers. Allele-specific extension reactions with an improved specificity were applied for several genomic purposes. Since DNA polymerases extend some mismatched 3’-end primers, an improved specificity is a concern. LÄS MER
