1. Ultrasound based shear wave elastography of the liver : a non-invasive method for evaluation of liver disease
Sammanfattning : Background: Detecting liver disease at an early stage is important, given that early intervention decreases the risk of developing cirrhosis and subsequently hepatocellular cancer (HCC). The non-invasive ultrasound-based shear wave elastography (SWE) has been used clinically for a decade to assess liver stiffness. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Chronic hepatitis C Virus (HCV) infection causes liver disease and may progress to severe fibrosis, cirrhosis, and hepatocellular carcinoma. This thesis aimed to evaluate the impact of host genetics, i.e. LÄS MER
3. Hepatitis C in people who inject drugs in the Stockholm needle exchange program : incidence, spontaneous clearance and change in risk behaviour
Sammanfattning : The major transmission route for hepatitis C virus (HCV) is sharing of unsterile injection equipment (needle/syringes and paraphernalia). Needle exchange programs (NEP) reduce injection risk behaviour and HCV spread among people who inject drugs (PWID). WHO has set a goal to eliminate HCV by the year 2030. LÄS MER
