The aim of this work has been to construct and evaluate a system for recording distortion product otoacoustic emissions in rats at ultrasonic frequencies up to at least 50 kHz. The paper primarily describes the design of the acoustic probe system, as this is the most critical part. An acoustic ear simulator was developed and used for the subsequent(More)
RNA interference is a mechanism for controlling normal gene expression which has recently begun to be employed as a potential therapeutic agent for a wide range of disorders, including cancer, infectious diseases and metabolic disorders. Clinical trials with RNA interference have begun. However, challenges such as off-target effects, toxicity and safe(More)

Neurodegenerative diseases are characterized by loss of neurons in the brain or the spinal cord. They include diseases such as Alzheimer disease, Huntington disease, and Parkinson disease, for which no effective treatments have been found. These severe diseases lead to loss of life quality for affected individuals and large health care costs for society.(More)
Much attention has been given to increasing income shares of top income earners in many advanced economies, particularly in the U.S. This increase is partly driven by so-called ‘supermanagers’, the chief executive officers (CEOs) of the largest firms. In this paper, we identify CEOs from matched worker-firm data for Denmark for the period 1995-2008 and(More)
Over the last decade evidence on the existence of auditory processing disorder (APD) has increased. Therefore, it is now time to deal with the phenomenon in daily clinical work. This article gives information about APD, especially about problems with the definition of APD, diagnosing APD and the treatment.
The American ethicists Tom L. Beauchamp and James F. Childress developed a framework of four ethical principles which are useful to analyze ethical complex cases in biomedicine. These four principles are respect for autonomy, beneficence, nonmaleficence, and justice. Beauchamp and Childress believe that their approach to manage ethical difficult cases is(More)
