    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to examine possible effects of omega-3 fatty acids on children’s cognition and behavior. Longitudinal as well as cross-sectional comparisons were made among children with typical development and children with ADHD /at risk developing ADHD. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Enzymatic synthesis of lipids containing omega-3 fatty acids

    Författare :Ann-Marie Lyberg; Bioteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; enzymologi; Proteiner; enzymology; Proteins; Enzymes; DHA; EPA; Biotechnology; Bioteknik;

    Sammanfattning : Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) and eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) are omega-3 fatty acids, which have health promoting effects. Since they are highly prone to oxidation, they should be protected, in particular DHA. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Inflammation modulating effects of prostaglandins and Omega-3 fatty acids

    Författare :Inger Vedin; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Sammanfattning : Omega-(omega6) and omega3 fatty acids (FA) and their metabolites (eikosanoids, such as prostaglandins, PG) are important modulators of immune and inflammatory responses in various ways. The aim of this thesis was to assess some in vitro and ex vivo effects of these lipids on blood leukocytes. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Predictors of Dementia : Insulin, Fatty Acids and Vascular Risk Factors

    Författare :Elina Rönnemaa; Lena Kilander; Lars Lannfelt; Björn Zethelius; Laura Fratiglioni; Uppsala universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; dementia; Alzheimer’s disease; vascular dementia; insulin secretion; diabetes; fatty acids; epidemiology; vascular risk factors; Geriatrics; Geriatrik;

    Sammanfattning : Identification of modifiable risk factors for Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is crucial in order to diminish suffering from this devastating disease. The aim of this thesis was to investigate if different aspects of glucose metabolism, insulin, fatty-acid composition or other vascular risk factors predict the future development of AD and dementia.

    Sammanfattning : Osteoporosis is a disease characterized by low bone mineral density, deteriorated bone microstructure and increased fracture risk. About 50% of all women and 25% of all men will have an osteoporotic fracture. Given that there is no effective cure in established osteoporosis, prevention is of high importance. LÄS MER
