New insecticides are urgently needed because resistance to current insecticides allows resurgence of disease-transmitting mosquitoes while concerns for human toxicity from current compounds are growing. We previously reported the finding of a free cysteine (Cys) residue at the entrance of the active site of acetylcholinesterase (AChE) in some insects but(More)
Sixty-six outpatients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM) filled in a life event questionnaire reflecting positive and negative life events perceived to have occurred over the past year. The difference in glycosylated hemoglobin (HbA1C) measures obtained before and after the 1-year period in question (Delta-HbA1C) served as a proxy measure of(More)
Objective. To investigate the diagnostic accuracy and clinical benefit of point-of-care Troponin T testing (POCT-TnT) in the management of patients with chest pain. Design. Observational, prospective, cross-sectional study with followup. Setting. Three primary health care (PHC) centres using POCT-TnT and four PHC centres not using POCT-TnT in the southeast(More)
In Sweden we have a long tradition of research collaboration using open testbeds. With that as background this paper discusses what factors make that type of collaboration successful, respectively what makes it fail (i.e. what are the ingredients to prepare successful testbed collaboration). Particularly in early life-cycle phases, looking for new and(More)
There is a demand for a highly sensitive and specific point-of care test to detect acute myocardial infarction (AMI). It is unclear if a high-sensitivity troponin assay will have enough discriminative power to become a decision support in primary care. The aim of this study was to evaluate a high-sensitivity troponin T assay performed in three primary(More)
In an earlier study of patients with insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus (IDDM), males who reported predominantly negative life events over the previous year and had a poorer social support situation showed poorer HbA1C values than those who reported fewer or no negative life events. For the females it was found that the greater the number of life events(More)
