  1. 1. Dynamic Modelling of Communicable and Non-Communicable Diseases

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Mathematics, Stockholm University

    Författare :Theresa Stocks; Michael Höhle; Tom Britton; Niel Hens; [2017]

    Sammanfattning : This thesis consists of two papers dealing with the stochastic dynamic modelling of one communicable and one non-communicable disease respectively. In the first paper we derive a patient- and organ-specific measure for the estimated negative side effects of radiotherapy using a stochastic logistic birth-death process. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Where are the world’s disease patterns heading? The challenges of epidemiological transition

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Författare :Ailiana Santosa; Peter Byass; Ulf Högberg; Joacim Rocklöv; Sarah Wild; [2015]

    Sammanfattning : INTRODUCTION: Epidemiological transition theory, first postulated by Omran in 1971, provides a useful framework for understanding cause-specific mortality changes and may contribute usefully to predictions about cause-specific mortality. However, understandings of mortality transitions and associated epidemiological changes remain poorly defined for public health practitioners due to lack of evidence from low- and middle-income countries.

  3. 3. Working with community exploring community empowerment to support non-communicable disease prevention in a middle-incom country

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Sammanfattning : Background: Non communicable diseases (NCD) are recognized as a major burden of human health globally, especially in low and middle-income countries including Indonesia. This thesis addresses a community intervention program utilizing a community empowerment approach to study whether this is a reasonable strategy to control NCD. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Epidemiology of cardiovascular disease in rural Vietnam

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Författare :Hoang Van Minh; Peter Byass; Stig Wall; Nguyen Thi Kim Chuc; Cairns Smith; [2006]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cardiovascular disease; epidemiology; risk factors; rural Vietnam; MEDICINE Social medicine Public health medicine research areas Epidemiology; MEDICIN Socialmedicin Folkhälsomedicinska forskningsområden Epidemiologi;

    Sammanfattning : In the context of transitional Vietnam, although cardiovascular disease (CVD) has been shown to cause a large burden of mortality and morbidity in hospitals, little is known about the magnitude of its burden, risk factor levels and its relationship with socio-demographic status in the overall population. This thesis provides a preliminary insight into population-based knowledge of the CVD epidemiology in rural Vietnam and contributes to the development of methodologies for monitoring it. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Nutritional factors and allergic disease : from infancy to adolescence

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Institute of Environmental Medicine

    Författare :Jessica Magnusson; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2016]

    Sammanfattning : Allergic disease is one of the most common non-communicable diseases in childhood. Both overweight and diet have been hypothesized to influence the risk of allergic disease. The aim of this thesis was to investigate the associations between overweight, fish intake and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) and allergic disease throughout childhood. LÄS MER
