METHODS Seven anesthetized ewes carrying singleton fetuses at 125 days' gestation (term 145 days) underwent BOLD MRI, covering the entire fetus in(More)
Fifty years ago type 2 diabetes mellitus was very rare in Greenland. Recent epidemiological studies have found a high prevalence of diabetes among Greenlanders comparable to levels among Inuit populations in Canada and Alaska.

All isolates were quinolone susceptible, suggesting that resistance is rare. Sampling patients for culture before treatment may(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to measure differences in oxygenation between the left and right sides of the fetal liver during varying oxygenation levels. METHODS Eight ewes carrying singleton fetuses at gestational age 125 days (term, 145 days) were included in the study. Under anesthesia the ewes were ventilated with gas containing different(More)
The dissolution rate, the toxicity and the release from chewing gum of miconazole and econazole cyclodextrin products and complexes were investigated. The dissolution rate studies showed that an amorphous miconazole hydroxypropyl-beta-cyclodextrin product gave drug supersaturation, whereas drug supersaturation was not present during dissolution rate testing(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to estimate the prevalent use of drugs targeting obstructive lung diseases among adults aged 50 or above in Greenland and to assess the use of spirometry testing among these medication users. STUDY DESIGN Observational cross-sectional study based on reviews of electronic medical records. METHODS The study was(More)
