AIMS Treatment of chronic heart failure (CHF) guided by natriuretic peptides has been studied in clinical trials with conflicting results. The aim of this study was to investigate if N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP)-guided therapy in symptomatic heart failure patients in primary care would improve clinical outcomes over and above(More)
A functional vomeronasal organ is present in most land-living vertebrates, but not in all. Studies in a limited number of mammals have shown that stimulation of the vomeronasal neurons by odorous cues from conspecifics can lead to changes in innate behaviors in association to e.g. mating and aggression. Given the role of the organ in detecting odorous(More)
An association between severe infant bronchiolitis due to respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and subsequent wheezing is well documented. High levels of urinary eosinophil protein X (U-EPX) have been related to active disease in asthmatic children. The aim of this study was to analyse whether RSV bronchiolitis leads to an increase in U-EPX levels and whether(More)
This work studies an innovate working hydraulic system design for mobile applications, referred to as flow control. The fundamental difference compared to load sensing systems is that the pump is controlled based on the operator’s command signals rather than feedback signals from the loads. This control approach enables higher energy efficiency since the(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of an angiogenesis inhibitor in a non-immunocompromised setting in which transplanted tumor cells home and expand in a manner mimicking the original tumor in the donor. We used a novel animal model for T-cell lymphoma/leukemia (TLL) to test the antitumor effect of TNP-470, a well-established(More)
BACKGROUND Moloney murine leukemia virus (Mo-MLV) has proven valuable for studies of the pathogenesis of malignant lymphoma. Inoculation of newborn mice induces T cell lymphoma with 100% incidence. The TLL (T cell lymphoma/leukemia)-strain was previously established and was shown to spontaneously develop T cell lymphoma at high frequency. MATERIALS AND(More)
In the interpretation of functional activation patterns, crucial steps concern how to relate the measurement data to an anatomical reference and how to compare the activation patterns of different individuals. As a tool in this process, a routine procedure has now been established of mapping the measurement data into a standard anatomical format (a brain(More)
