  1. 1. Cadmium induced kidney dysfunction in rodents and its relevance to biomonitoring : experimental and environmental findings

    Författare :Per Leffler; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Forestry; forest worker; chain saw; mechanization; rationalization; labour history; working life; technical change; cutting operation;

    Sammanfattning : This study deals with how workers actively introduced a new technique to their own labour process. More specifically, it is concerned with how Swedish forest workers during the 1950s gradually replaced the manual one-man crosscut saw with the motor-driven saw. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Reproductive toxicology of endocrine disruptors : effects of cadmium, phthalates and phytoestrogens on testicular steroidogenesis

    Författare :David Gunnarsson; Gunnar Selstam; Gunnar Nordberg; Per Leffler; Henrik Leffers; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Endocrine disruptors; reproductive toxicology; cadmium; phthalates; DEHP; MEHP; phytoestrogens; steroidogenesis; testosterone; Leydig cell; Molecular biology; Molekylärbiologi;

    Sammanfattning : A number of investigations during the last two decades describe adverse trends in male reproductive health, which have been proposed to be caused by environmental factors with endocrine disrupting properties. In contrast to many other toxicants, endocrine disruptors often do not show linear dose-response relationships typical of those found in traditional toxicological studies. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Hazard screening of contaminated sites : bioavailable fractions and biological in vitro tools

    Författare :Daniel Ragnvaldsson; Mats Tysklind; Per Leffler; Lars Lövgren; Bengt-Erik Bengtsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Hazard screening; bioavailability; metal pollution; in vitro cytotoxicity; water extraction; CCA; arsenic genotoxicity; genotoxicity; Contaminated soil; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi;

    Sammanfattning : The environmental bioavailability of contaminants, rather than their total concentrations in the soil compartment play a decisive role for the risks associated with contaminated sites. Various soil constituents and abiotic conditions have strong influence on bioavailability, which may vary substantially between different locations. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Development of an Environment-Accident Index : A planning tool to protect the environment in case of a chemical spill

    Författare :Åsa Scott Andersson; Mats Tysklind; Ingrid Fängmark; Olof Stjernström; Stellan Fisher; Per Leffler; Ronald Wennersten; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Environmental chemistry; Environment-Accident Index; Chemical Accidents; environmental effects; questionnaire; expert judgements; statistical multivariate design; PCA; PLS; Miljökemi; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi;

    Sammanfattning : The increasing mass and complexity of chemicals being produced and transported has resulted in more rigorous demands on both authorities as well as chemical-handling industries to assess the risks involved. The Environment-Accident Index (EAI), has been proposed as a planning tool created as an equation in which chemical properties (variables describing the chemical involved) are combined with site-specific properties (variables describing the accident site).

  5. 5. Vampyrer : En kulturkritisk studie av den västerländska vampyrberättelsen från 1700-talet till 2000-talet

    Författare :Anna Höglund; Lars Elleström; Lisbeth Larsson; Yvonne Leffler; Växjö universitet; []
    Nyckelord :HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANIORA; HUMANITIES; HUMANITIES; vampire; vampires; power; literature; film; popular culture; consumer culture; gender; vampyr; vampyrer; makt; litteratur; film; populärkultur; konsumtionskultur; genus; Literature; Litteraturvetenskap; History of science and ideas; Idé- o lärdomshistoria; Comparative literature; Litteraturvetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : Vampires haunt our culture. They live amongst us, they live with us, and very likely, they live for us. Considering the never fading popularity of vampires, it is obvious that these beings satisfy some kind of basic human need. LÄS MER
