Sammanfattning : Historically, the dominating theoretical framework for communication in the context of acute pain is reassurance. An inherent assumption of this framework is that the person in pain needs to have their fears and doubts removed and be educated, or persuaded, that the pain problem is not dan-gerous. LÄS MER
2. Epidemiological Aspects of Asthma in Primary Care : Special Reference to Prevalence, Clinical Detection and Validation
Sammanfattning : Objectives. To describe the prevalence of asthma in a mid-Swedish region and measure the detection rate of asthma in primary care. To compare clinical outcomes for adolescents with asthma in primary care or in paediatric care and to perform a clinical validation in children with airway, nose and skin symptoms. Material and methods. LÄS MER
3. Validation and application of objective measures of obesity and physical activity : studies in pregnant and non-pregnant adults and in infants
Sammanfattning : Background Excess adipose tissue and low physical activity are two major determinants for chronic diseases such as type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Understanding these relationships requires accurate and precise measures of body composition and physical activity, and most existing observational studies lack such measures. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The quality of software systems depends on early activities in the software development process, of which the management of requirements is one. When requirements are not managed well, a project can fail or become more costly than intended, and the quality of the software developed can decrease. LÄS MER
5. Zebrafish models for large-scale genetic screens in dyslipidemia and atherosclerosis : Validation and application
Sammanfattning : Hundreds of loci have been robustly associated with circulating lipids, atherosclerosis and coronary artery disease; but for most loci the causal genes and mechanisms remain uncharacterized. The overall aim of my thesis is to develop and validate novel in vivo model systems that are suitable for high-throughput, image-based genetic screens in coronary artery disease and related traits, and use these model systems to systematically characterize positional candidate genes.
