The role of dietary fat and carbohydrates in development of adipose tissue inflammation
(The University of Bergen, 2009-06-02)
Obesity is considered as a chronic low-grade inflammatory condition, which can be characterized by increased levels of the proinflammatory cytokines such as TNF-α and IL-6, and macrophage infiltration in adipose tissue. ...
Effekt av havregrynsgrøt på tykktarmens bakterieflora En eksplorativ studie av fekal beta-galaktosidase galaktosidaseog ureaseaktivitet i tykktarmen hos friske forsøkspersoner
(The University of Bergen, 2009-05-07)
Irritabel tarm (IBS) er en kronisk lidelse som rammer ca. 15 prosent av befolkningen, og kjennetegnes ved magesmerter, oppblåsthet/gassplager og avføringsforstyrrelser. Det er mye som tyder på at bakteriefloraen til ...
Severity of Giardia infection associated with post-infectious fatigue and abdominal symptoms two years after
(BioMed Central, 2009-12-15)
Background: A high rate of post-infectious fatigue and abdominal symptoms two years after a waterborne outbreak of giardiasis in Bergen, Norway in 2004 has previously been reported. The aim of this report was to identify ...
Symptomer etter inntak av karbohydrater. En sammenligning av laktulose og glukose hos pasienter med selvrapportert matoverfølsomhet
(The University of Bergen, 2009-09-16)
Bakgrunn: Unormale reaksjoner på inntak av mat rapporteres hos opptil 25 % av befolkningen, men kun et fåtall av disse har ekte matvareallergi. IBS (irritabel tarm) er en kronisk og plagsom, men i seg selv ufarlig lidelse, ...
Development of functional gastrointestinal disorders after Giardia lamblia infection
(BioMed Central, 2009-04-21)
Background: Functional gastrointestinal disorders (FGID) may occur following acute gastroenteritis. This long-term complication has previously not been described after infection with the non-invasive protozoan Giardia ...
Food allergy alters jejunal circular muscle contractility and induces local inflammatory cytokine expression in a mouse model
(BioMed Central, 2009-05-18)
Background: We hypothesized that food allergy causes a state of non-specific jejunal dysmotility. This was tested in a mouse model. Methods: Balb/c mice were epicutaneously sensitized with ovalbumin and challenged with ...
Different skeletal effects of the peroxisome proliferator activated receptor (PPAR)alpha agonist fenofibrate and the PPAR gamma agonist pioglitazone
(BioMed Central, 2009-03-30)
Background: All the peroxisome proliferator activated receptors (PPARs) are found to be expressed in bone cells. The PPARγ agonist rosiglitazone has been shown to decrease bone mass in mice and thiazolidinediones ...
A genome-wide association study in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD): Identification of two major susceptibility loci
There is considerable variability in the susceptibility of smokers to develop chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The only known genetic risk factor is severe deficiency of α1-antitrypsin, which is present in ...
Dietary RNA (s. Cerevisiae) stimulated cytokine secretion in human immune cells: involvement of p38 MAPK, and co-stimulation with LPS or PHA
(The University of Bergen, 2009-07-01)
Dietary nucleotides and nucleic acids are known to affect immune functions in animals and humans, both in vitro and in vivo. In this thesis I wanted to investigate the effect of dietary RNA from baker’s yeast on cytokine ...
