  1. 1. The health condition in the Sami population of Sweden, 1961-2002 : Causes of death and incidences of cancer and cardiovascular diseases

    Författare :Sven Hassler; Per Sjölander; Peter Bjerregaard; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Public health; Sami; Health; Epidemiology; Reindeer herder; Cardiovascular diseases; Cancer; Causes of death; Acculturation; Sweden; Folkhälsomedicin; Public health medicine research areas; Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden; epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Sammanfattning : The Sami people are the Natives of northern Scandinavia. The knowledge of the health and living conditions of the Swedish Sami is extremely limited which is in contrast to the large amount of detailed information on health and socioeconomic issues that is available for other circumpolar Natives.

  2. 2. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease : clinical phenotyping, mortality and causes of death

    Författare :Sami Sawalha; Anne Lindberg; Helena Backman; Nikolai Stenfors; Karin Lisspers; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Phenotyping; chronic airflow obstruction; COPD; productive cough; pre- and postbronchodilator airway obstruction; co-morbidity; epidemiology; mortality; causes of death; sex; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) is common. The estimated prevalence is about 10% among adults, but varies largely dependent on the major risk factors age and smoking. Under-diagnosis of COPD is substantial and is related to disease severity. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Causes and treatment of chronic respiratory failure : experience of a national register

    Författare :Torbjörn Gustafson; Kerstin Ström; Karl Franklin; Kjell Torén; Kurt Boman; Leif Bjermer; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :Internal medicine; Invärtesmedicin; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; pulmonary fibrosis; kyphoscoliosis; respiratory failure; sex; smoking; occupation; survival; long-term oxygen therapy; mechanical ventilation; lungmedicin; Lung Medicine;

    Sammanfattning : Long-term oxygen therapy (LTOT) or home mechanical ventilation (HMV) can improve survival time in chronic respiratory failure. A national quality register could be an aid to identifying risk markers and optimizing therapy for respiratory failure. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Epidemiological Studies of Small Intestinal Tumours

  5. 5. Mechanisms of HAMLET-induced cancer cell death

    Författare :Sonja Aits; immunologi och glykobiologi - MIG Avdelningen för mikrobiologi; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; alpha-actinin; prohibitin; alpha-lactalbumin; HAMLET; cancer; cell death; autophagy; focal adhesions; c-Myc; hexokinase; glycolysis;

    Sammanfattning : HAMLET, a complex of α-lactalbumin and oleic acid, preferentially kills cancer cells and is also effective in vivo. HAMLET causes apoptosis but cells die even if this pathway is inhibited. Thus, the role of autophagy, an alternative cell death pathway, was examined. LÄS MER
