    Bestämning och jämförelse av lägsta detektionsintervall för odling och qPCR vid analys av Staphylococcus aureus2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Vårdrelaterade infektioner (VRI) är ett ökande problem inom hälso- och sjukvården. På neonatalavdelningen på Länssjukhuset Ryhov i Jönköping har det förekommit inkonsekventa odlingsresultat vid misstänkt VRI orsakad av Staphylococcus aureus. Att förebygga VRI samt värna om patientsäkerheten kräver känsliga och pålitliga laboratorieanalyser. Syftet med studien var att bestämma och jämföra lägsta detektionsintervall för metoderna odling och qPCR med och utan anrikning i MAMSA-buljong, av S. aureus. Seriespädningar av S. aureus tillreddes och koncentrationer för ursprungsrören uträknades via viable count (VC). Odling på blodagar samt qPCR med och utan anrikning i MAMSA-buljong utfördes. Resultaten användes för att bestämma ett lägsta detektionsintervall. Odling gav ett lägsta detektionsintervall mellan 0,5–62 CFU/ml, och qPCR mellan 6400–140 000 CFU/ml. Anrikning med MAMSA-buljong innan qPCR-analys gav ett lägsta detektionsintervall mellan 0,6–140 CFU/ml. För detektion via odling räcker enstaka till tiotals CFU/ml i analysprovet. Vid qPCR behövs tusentals till hundratusentals CFU/ml i analysprovet, men vid qPCR med MAMSA-anrikning kan detektionsintervallet sänkas till nivåer jämförbara med odling. För att kunna applicera studiens resultat på den laborativa verksamheten krävs vidare studier med fler bakteriearter och replikat.

    Detektion och kvantifiering av två olika isoformer av PDIA3 i prostatacancerceller2019Independent thesis Basic level (professional degree), 180 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Det finns ett behov av fler specifika biomarkörer kopplade till prostatacancer, vilka skulle öka behandlingsmöjligheter vid tidig diagnos. Olika isoformer av protein disulfide isomerase family A, member 3 (PDIA3) är associerade med maligna stadier av prostatacancer och kan därför potentiellt användas som biomarkörer. Syftet med studien var att detektera, kvantifiera och undersöka genuttryck av den proteinkodande isoformen PDIA3-201 och en nyupptäckt isoform av PDIA3 (PDIA3-Novel) i prostatacancerceller i varierande stadier. Uttrycket undersöktes med droplet digital Polymerase Chain Reaction (ddPCR) i normala prostataceller och i prostatacancerceller (PNT2, DU145, PC3 och LNCaP). Variation observerades mellan replikat och olika spädningar. Förhållanden av koncentrationer mellan PDIA3-Novel och PDIA3-201 skiljde sig både inom och mellan dem olika cellinjerna. Uttrycket av PDIA3-Novel var högre i PNT2 och PC3 jämfört med DU145. Uttrycket av PDIA3-Novel var högre i metastatiskt stadium av prostatacancer (LNCaP) men bristerna i studien minskar tillförlitligheten av resultatet. Resultatet från denna studie indikerar dock att PDIA3-Novel kan användas som biomarkör för prostatacancer och ge information som gynnar behandling. Fler försök i större skala behöver utföras som inkluderar patientprover och fler cellinjer.

    Karies och kariesassocierade faktorer bland svenska 15-åringar med invandrarbakgrund2004Rapport (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives: The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of caries and caries associated variables in 15-year-olds with a foreign background in relation to Swedish 15-year-olds and to examine differences in the prevalence of caries in immigrant adolescents according to their length of residence in Sweden. Methods: All 15-year-old adolescents (n=143) at one public school in the city of Jönköping, Sweden, were asked to participate in the study. The adolescents were divided into two groups according to their background: immigrants and non-immigrants. The final study cohort comprised 117 adolescents: 51 immigrants and 66 non-immigrants. All participants were interviewed individually in a structed interview on background data, diet, oral hygiene habits and fluor exposure. Data on caries prevalence were extracted from the dental records of the examination made when the participants were 15 years old. Results: Immigrant adolescents had significantly more surfaces affected by enamel and dentine caries than non-immigrants, but the proportions of immigrants and non-immigrants who had symptoms of enamel or dentine caries were equal. Adolescents born in Sweden of immigrant parents or who had arrived before 1 year of age had caries prevalence similar to those of non-immigrant adolescents, whereas children who had immigrated to Sweden after seven years of age had a caries prevalence that was 2–3 times higher. Among immigrant adolescents, compared with non-immigrants, a lower proportion ate breakfast regularly and had a higher intake of snack products, and sucrose intake was positively correlated with caries prevalence among immigrants. There were no statistically significant differences in toothbrushing or flossing frequency or use of fluorides between immigrants and non-immigrants, but immigrant adolescents who brushed their teeth only once a day had more than twice as many proximal surfaces affected by caries as immigrants who brushed twice a day. Conclusion: Caries prevalence is higher in immigrant than in Swedish adolescents, especially in adolescents who immigrated to Sweden. After seven years of age. As caries was mainly restricted to the enamel. Immigrant adolescents had on average more caries associated factors than non-immigrants.

    On Oral Health in Young Individuals with a Focus on Sweden and Vietnam: A Cultural Perspective2013Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM: The overall aim of this thesis was to study culture as an oral health determinant for dental caries and gingivitis in children living in Jönköping, Sweden, in relation to children living in Da Nang, Vietnam.

    MATERIALS AND METHODS: In 1993 and 2003, cross-sectional studies with clinical examinations and questionnaires were performed in Jönköping, Sweden, with a random sample of 130 children from each of four age groups; 3, 5, 10 and 15 years. The final study sample comprised 739 children, 154 (21%) with two foreign-born parents and 585 (79%) with two Swedish-born parents (Paper I). In 2000, all 15-year-olds (n=143) at one school in Jönköping, Sweden, were asked to participate in a questionnaire study connected to clinical data. The final sample comprised 117 individuals, 51 (44%) with foreign-born parents and 66 (56%) with Swedish-born parents (Paper II). In 2008, a cross-sectional study with clinical examinations and questionnaires was performed in Da Nang, Vietnam with 840 randomly selected children, 210 in each of four age groups; 3, 5, 10 and 15 years. The final sample comprised 745 individuals (Papers III and IV).

    RESULTS: In 2003, the mean number of decayed (initial and manifest) and filled tooth surfaces was significantly higher in all age groups in children with foreign-born parents compared with children with Swedish-born parents. The gap between children with foreign-born parents and Swedish-born parents increased over the ten-year period from 1993 to 2003. The odds ratio of dental caries development among 10- and 15-year-old children with foreign-born-parents was more than six times higher than for their counterparts with Swedish-born parents (Paper I). Fifteen-year-olds born in Sweden of foreignborn parents and those who had immigrated before one year of age had a caries prevalence similar to 15-year-olds with Swedish-born parents, whereas the caries prevalence in children who had immigrated to Sweden after 7 years of age was 2-3 times higher (Paper II). Among the 3- and 5-year-olds in Vietnam, 98% suffered from dental caries, compared with 91% of 10- and 15-year-olds (Paper IV). The distribution of the most frequent values of decayed and filled primary tooth surfaces (dfs) in 5-year-olds was 16–20, and of decayed and filled permanent tooth surfaces (DFS) in 15-year-olds was 1–5. The maximum dfs was 76–80, and significant numbers of children had dfs between 20 and 50. The percentage of tooth sites with plaque and gingivitis was higher for children in all age groups with foreign-born parents compared with children with Swedish-born parents, except among the 15-year-olds in 2003. In Vietnam, the prevalence of plaque and gingivitis was high in all age groups, especially in 10- and 15-year-olds. Fifteen-yearolds in Sweden with foreign-born parents had a higher intake of snack products between principal meals compared with 15-year-olds with Swedish-born parents (Paper II). In Sweden, most children in all age groups brushed their teeth themselves or with help from their parents twice or more than twice a day (Paper I). Among 3- and 5-year-olds in Vietnam, about half of the parents reported that their children brushed their teeth themselves or with help from parents twice or more than twice a day (Paper III). All 3-year-olds and 99% of 5-year-olds in Sweden brushed their teeth with fluoride toothpaste (Paper I). Among 15-year-olds in Sweden with foreign-born parents, 88% reported that they brushed their teeth with fluoride toothpaste at least twice a day compared with 98% of 15-year-olds with Swedish-born parents (Paper II). In Vietnam, 44–78% of the children used fluoride toothpaste for toothbrushing and 51% consumed sweets between principal meals at least once a day (Paper III). Sweetened milk was the most common source of this sugar intake for the 3- and 5-year-olds (Paper III).

    CONCLUSIONS: Culture is an important oral health determinant for dental caries and gingivitis in children. There is an urgent need to improve oral health care promotion and preventive programmes for children with foreign-born parents in Sweden, but also a great need for such programmes for children in Vietnam.

    On oral health in young individuals with foreign and Swedish backgrounds2011Licentiatavhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    In Sweden, children and adolescents with two foreign-born parents constitute 17% of all children in the Swedish population.

    AIMS: The aims of this thesiswere to collect knowledge of the prevalence of gingivitis, caries and caries associated variables, in the 3-, 5-, 10- and 15-year age groups with two foreign born parents compared with their counterparts with Swedish-born parents in a ten-year perspective (Study I). To investigate the prevalence of caries and caries-associated variables in 15-year-olds in relation to foreign backgrounds and to examine differences in the prevalence of caries in adolescents with foreign backgrounds according to their length of residence in Sweden (StudyII).

    MATERIAL AND METHODS: In 1993 and 2003, cross-sectional studies with random samples of individuals in the age groups of 3, 5, 10 and 15 years were performed in Jönköping, Sweden. The oral health status of all individuals was examined clinically and radiographically. The children or their parents also answered a questionnaire about their attitudes to, and knowledge of, teeth and oral health care habits. The final study sample comprised 739 children and adolescents, 154 with two foreign-born parents (F cohort) and 585 with two Swedish-born parents (S cohort) (Study I). In Study II, all 15-year-olds(n=143) at one school in the city of Jönköping were asked to participate in the study. The final sample comprised 117 individuals, 51 with foreign-born parents and 66 with Swedish-born parents. All the individuals were interviewed using a structured questionnaire with visualisation e.g. food packages, sweets and snacks. Information about DFS was collected from case records at the Public Dental Service.

    RESULTS: In both 1993 and 2003, more 3- and 5-yearolds in the S cohort were caries free compared with the F cohort. In 1993, dfs was higher among 3- and 5-year-olds in the F cohort (p<0.01) compared with the S cohort. In 2003, dfs/DFS was statistically significantly higher in all age groups among children and adolescents in the F cohort compared with the S cohort. In 2003, the odds ratio of being exposed to dental caries among 10- and 15-year-olds in the F cohort, adjusted for gender and age, was more than six times higher (OR=6.3, 95% CI:2.51-15.61; p<0.001) compared with the S cohort (Study I). Fifteen-year-olds born in Sweden with foreign-born parents, or who had arrived before one year of age, had a caries prevalence similar to that of adolescents with Swedish-born parents, whereas children who had immigrated to Sweden after seven years of age had a caries prevalence that was two to three times higher (p <0.06) (Study II). Both in 1993 and 2003, the mean of the percentage of tooth sites with plaque and gingivitis was numerically higher in all age groups in individuals with foreign backgrounds compared with Swedish background, except between the 15-year-olds (Study I).

    CONCLUSIONS: The decrease in caries prevalence, in a ten-year perspective, was less among children and adolescents with foreign-born parents compared with children and adolescents with Swedish-born parents. In 2003, there was statistically significantly more caries in all age groups among children and adolescents with foreign-born parents compared with children and adolescents with Swedish-born parents. Children who immigrated to Sweden at age seven or later had a two to three times higher caries prevalence compared with their Swedish counterparts. The odds ratio for being exposed to dental caries was almost six times higher for 10- and 15-year olds with foreign-born parents compared with their Swedish counterparts. The intake of carbohydrate-rich food was higher among 15-year olds with foreign backgrounds compared to those with Swedish background. There is an obvious need to improve the promotion of oral health care programmes among children and adolescents with foreign-born parents.

    Sociodemographic conditions, knowledge of dental diseases, dental care, and dietary habits2015Inngår i: Journal of Public Health Dentistry, ISSN 0022-4006, E-ISSN 1752-7325, Vol. 75, nr 4, s. 308-316Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives

    This study's aim was to present data on the sociodemographic conditions, knowledge of dental diseases, dental care, and dietary habits among children aged 3, 5, 10, and 15 years in Da Nang, Vietnam.

    Methods

    A cross-sectional epidemiological questionnaire study was conducted in a population of 840 children randomly selected by their year and month of birth (January to July), including 210 individuals in each age group. A self-reported questionnaire was completed by the parents of 3- and 5-year-olds, and a modified questionnaire was given to 10- and 15-year-olds to complete by themselves.

    Results

    Mass media constituted the main source of oral healthcare information. Parents assisted with tooth brushing in 86 percent of 3-year-olds and 71 percent of 5-year-olds. Fluoride toothpaste was used by 44-78 percent of children, with no clear age-related trend. Within the past year, 60 percent of 3- and 5-year-olds, 20 percent of 10-year-olds, and 49 percent of 15-year-olds reported they had not visited a dental professional. Sweets were consumed between principal meals by 70-80 percent of children. Milk with sugar was regularly consumed by 71 percent of 3-year-olds and 91 percent of 5-year-olds.

    Conclusions

    Children showed frequent sugar consumption and insufficient frequency of brushing their teeth with fluoride toothpaste. Food-based dietary guidelines should play a significant role in nutrition and oral health. It is especially important that oral health prevention programs reach preschool children before they establish unhealthy dietary habits. Parental education about oral health and access to oral healthcare services are also needed to improve children's oral health.

    Knowledge, attitudes and behaviour about dental diseases and dental care habits in adolescents in Jönköping, Sweden and in Da Nang, Vietnam2008Inngår i: Knowledge, attitude and behaviour in oral health care among 10-15 year olds in Jönköping, Sweden and DaNang, Vietnam, 2008Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of this article was to present data about oral hygiene and knowledge about dental diseases and dental care habits in 10-15 year olds in Jönköping, Sweden and 10-11 year-olds in Da Nang, Vietnam in 2003. Methods A random sample of 206 individuals 10 and 15 year olds, from the City of Jönköping and 369 individuals from the City of Da Nang, were asked about their attitudes towards and knowledge of teeth and dental care habits. Results In Jönköping 9% answered that gingivitis is the same as inflammation of the gum. In Da Nang study 40% knew about early sign of gingivitis (easily gum bleeding).  67% in Jönköping answered that bacteria and sugar cause the acid that gives caries. In Da Nang 47% could answer correctly the cause of dental caries. The percentage of children who brush their teeth twice a day was the same, around 80 %, in both studies. In Jönköping 100% of the children used fluoride toothpaste. In Da Nang 73 % always used Fluoride toothpaste and 14 % did not know if the toothpaste they used contained Fluoride or not.

    Oral Health in young individuals with foreign and Swedish backgrounds - a ten-year perspective2011Inngår i: European Archives of Paediatric Dentistry, ISSN 1818-6300, E-ISSN 1996-9805, Vol. 12, nr 3, s. 151-158Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    AIM:

    To investigate oral health status and coherent determinants in children with foreign backgrounds compared with children with a Swedish background, during a ten year period.

    DESIGN AND METHODS:

    In 1993 and 2003, cross-sectional studies with random samples of individuals in the age groups 3, 5, 10 and 15 years were performed in Jönköping, Sweden. All the individuals were personally invited to a clinical and radiographic examination of their oral health status. They were also asked about their attitudes to and knowledge of teeth and oral health care habits. The final study sample comprised 739 children and adolescents, 154 with a foreign background (F cohort) and 585 with a Swedish background (S cohort).

    RESULTS:

    In both 1993 and 2003, more 3- and 5 year olds in the S cohort were caries-free compared with the F cohort. In 1993, dfs was higher among 3- and 5 year olds in the F cohort (p<0.01) compared with the S cohort. In 2003, dfs/DFS was statistically significantly higher in all age groups among children and adolescents in the F cohort compared with the S cohort. When it came to proximal tooth surfaces, the percentages of individuals who were caries-free, with initial carious lesions, with manifest carious lesions and with restorations among 10-year-olds in the F cohort were 55%, 23%, 4% and 18% in 1993. The corresponding figures for the S cohort were 69%, 20%, 6% and 5% respectively. In 2003, the values for the F cohort were 54%, 29%, 4% and 13% compared with 82%, 12%, 1% and 5% in the S cohort. In 2003, the odds of being exposed to dental caries among 10- and 15-yearolds in the F cohort, adjusted for gender and age, were more than six times higher (OR=6.3, 95% CI:2.51-15.61; p<0.001) compared with the S cohort.

    CONCLUSIONS:

    There has been a decline in caries prevalence between 1993 and 2003 in all age groups apart from 3-year-olds. However, the improvement in dfs/DFS was greater in the S cohort compared with the F cohort in all age groups. The difference between the F and S cohorts in terms of dfs/ DFS was larger in 2003 compared with 10 years earlier. In 2003, the odds ratio for being exposed to dental caries was almost six times higher for 10- and 15-year-olds with two foreign-born parents compared with their Swedish counterparts.

    Oral health of children and adolescents in Da Nang2014Inngår i: Oral Hygiene & Health, ISSN 2332-0672, Vol. 2, nr 4, s. 1-6Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    This is a cross-sectional epidemiological study comprising 840 randomly selected children in the age groups of 3, 5, 10 and 15 year-olds. All children were clinically examined for number of teeth, dental caries, dental fillings, plaque, gingivitis and probing pocket depth. Dental care and dietary habits were collected using a self-reported questionnaire. Among 3 and 5 year olds, 98% suffered from dental caries, compared to 91% of 10 and 15 year olds. The mean (SD) of decayed (initial and manifest) and filled tooth surfaces (dfs/DFS) in the different age groups was: 18.2 (14.1), 23.0 (15.4), 5.1 (4.2) and 6.9 (6.0), respectively. There was an average of ~ 30% in all age groups with plaque and gingivitis. Consuming milk with sugar more than 2–3 times a week (3 and 5 year olds) and eating sweets between principal meals twice a day (in 10 and 15 year olds) were statistically significant with caries prevalence. It is concluded that dental caries and gingivitis are significant public health problems among children in Da Nang, Vietnam.

    Abstract [en]

    Styudents and faculty from two dental hygiene schools know that international dental hygiene is high-tech, education-and fun. In the fall of 1996, at the invitation of the Hälsohögskolan-Jönköping University, College of Health Sciences in Sweden, their dental hygiene department and that of Camosun College in Victoria, British Columbia, Canada, jointly organized an ongoing e-mail exchange program between second year students. Students are assigned topics to research and then, with their international partner, are asked to share and discuss information on their findings. A six weekfaculty exchange took place in the fall of 1997 with each sharing their dental hygiene expertise. Both joint ventures have been very successful in promoting the use of high technology in education and fostering international dental hygiene learning and goodwill.

    Dental caries and caries associated factors in Swedish 15-year-olds in relation to immigrant background.2005Inngår i: Swedish Dental Journal, ISSN 0347-9994, Vol. 29, nr 2, s. 71-79Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    The aim of the present study was to evaluate the prevalence of caries and caries associated variables in 15-year-olds in relation to foreign background and to examine differences in the prevalence of caries in immigrant adolescents according to their length of residence in Sweden. All 15-year-old adolescents (n=143) at one public school in the city of Jönköping, Sweden were asked to participate in the study. The adolescents were divided into two groups according to their background: immigrants and non-immigrants. Data on caries prevalence were extracted from the dental records of the examination made when the participants were 15 years old. The proportions of immigrants and non-immigrants free from carious lesions were equal. Immigrant adolescents, however, had on average more enamel carious lesions. Adolescents born in Sweden of immigrant parents or who had arrived before 1 year of age had a caries prevalence similar to those of non-immigrant adolescents, whereas children who had immigrated to Sweden after 7 years of age had a caries prevalence that was 2-3 times higher. As the caries carious lesions in immigrant adolescents is mainly restricted to the enamel, and possibly reversible, early introduction of preventive programmes seems essential.

    Det kromogena odlingsmediet UriSelectTM4 kan inkuberas i 5 % koldioxid2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Urinvägsinfektion är en av de mest förekommande infektionerna hos människan. För att visualisera urinvägspatogener kan det kromogena mediet UriSelectTM4 användas för diagnostik. Det primära syftet med studien var att utvärdera om det är möjligt att inkubera det kromogena mediet UriSelectTM4 i 5 % koldioxid istället för aerob miljö utan att totalväxt och morfologi påverkas. Vidare utvärderades totalväxt och antal fria kolonier vid odling på en halv UriSelectTM4-agarplatta med två odlingstekniker för att undersöka om fortsatt diagnostik är möjligt. Urinprover inkuberades i aerob miljö och i 5 % koldioxid och jämfördes visuellt utifrån totalväxt, antal fria kolonier, morfologi samt färgförändring på kolonier och agarn. Resultatet visade att totalväxt och antal fria kolonier endast skiljer i liten grad mellan inkubationsmiljöerna. Däremot förekom skillnader i morfologi och färg. Vidare kunde en halv agarplatta användas vid odling och fortsatt diagnostik. Studien visar därmed att UriSelectTM4 kan inkuberas i 5 % koldioxid utan att totalväxt, fria kolonier och agarn påverkas.

    Jämförelse mellan total lungkapacitetberäknat utifrån single-breath metangasspädningrespektive kroppspletysmografi2017Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Total lungkapacitet (TLC) är den totala volymen gas i lungorna efter en maximal inspiration. Den kan beräknas med kroppspletysmograf utifrån tryckförändringar och Boyles lag respektive utifrån gasspädning med metan alternativt helium som spädningsgas. Vanligen används kroppspletysmografi och för att kunna använda metangasspädning som substitut är överensstämmelsen mellan metoderna av intresse.

    Studiens syfte var att jämföra TLC från single-breath metangasspädning med TLC från kroppspletysmografi. Data gällande patienter som genomgått båda undersökningarna vid samma tillfälle enligt standardförfarande samlades in. Studien var en retrospektiv tvärsnittsstudie och populationen á 48 patienter innehöll lika många män som kvinnor, åldrar från 10 till 87 år samt med och utan angivna respiratoriska sjukdomar.

    TLC från kroppspletysmografin sträckte sig från 2,6 till 8,4 liter och TLC från metangasspädningen sträckte sig från 2,5 till 7,7 liter. TLC från gasspädningen var i genomsnitt 0,59 liter mindre än TLC från kroppspletysmografin. Metangasspädningen underskattade TLC med 11,3%. Skillnaden mellan kroppspletysmografins TLC och metangasspädningens TLC var signifikant vilket fastställdes med t-test för parvisa observationer.

    På grund av studiepopulationens natur finns behov av ytterligare studier med större populationer. TLC från metangasspädningen uppgick till 88,7% av TLC från kroppspletysmografin och gasspädning kan inte utan ökad risk för underskattning av TLC användas som substitut för kroppspletysmografi.

    Experiences of xerostomia after radiotherapy in patients with head and neck cancer: A qualitative study2018Inngår i: Journal of Clinical Nursing, ISSN 0962-1067, E-ISSN 1365-2702, Vol. 27, nr 1-2, s. e100-e108Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    AIMS AND OBJECTIVES: To describe the experiences of radiation-induced xerostomia in patients with head and neck cancer.

    BACKGROUND: Xerostomia is the most commonly occurring complication during and following radiotherapy. It can persist for several months or years and can have a significant impact on patients' quality of life.

    DESIGN: This was a qualitative descriptive study.

    METHODS: Semi-structured interviews were conducted with a sample of 20 participants. Inductive content analysis was used to analyse the qualitative data.

    RESULTS: Analysis of the manifest content identified five categories: communication problems, physical problems, psychosocial problems, treatment problems and relief strategies. The latent content was formulated into a theme: due to lack of information from professionals, the patients had to find their own solutions for their problems.

    CONCLUSIONS: Xerostomia is not only a biophysical symptom but also has a profound effect on the emotional, intellectual and sociocultural dimensions of life. The majority of patients continued to suffer from xerostomia and its associated symptoms after radiotherapy, in part, because of a lack of professional support, including the inability of nurses to provide oral health care.

    RELEVANCE TO CLINICAL PRACTICE: Nurses need to be knowledgeable about the effects of radiotherapy on oral mucosa and about appropriate interventions. The healthcare system requires a symptom management platform for radiation-induced complications, to help patients, their families and healthcare professionals obtain information about self-care, treatments and relief strategies.

    Intima-media tjocklek och lumendiameter i arteria carotis communis: en jämförelse av höger och vänster sida2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Bakgrund: En vanlig bakomliggande orsak till kardiovaskulära sjukdomar är ateroskleros. En ökning av IMT och LD ses tidigt i den aterosklerotiska processen. För att undersöka IMT och LD används ultraljud. Det finns flera riskfaktorer för att få en ökad IMT och LD. Möjligtvis finns det en sidoskillnad av IMT och LD, däremot är inte orsaken klarlagd. Syfte: Syftet var att jämföra intima-media tjocklek (IMT) och lumendiameter (LD) mellan höger- och vänster arteria carotis communis (CCA). Syftet var även att jämföra om det fanns en sidoskillnadav IMT och LD i CCAmed utgångspunkt från riskgrupperna relaterat till respektive referensgrupp. Metod: Detta arbete var en retrospektiv studie med 41 slumpmässigt utvalda deltagare. Resultat: Det sågs ingen statistisk signifikant sidoskillnad av IMT eller LD i hela populationen. Vid jämförelse av sidoskillnad av IMT och LD mellan riskgrupp och referensgrupp kunde ingen statistisk signifikant sidoskillnad påvisas hos någon av grupperna. Diskussion: Syftet uppnåddes men begränsningar som kan ha påverkat resultatet förekom. Detta arbete har fått både liknande resultat samt avvikande resultat jämfört med tidigare studier. Slutsats: Fortsatt forskning rekommenderas för att erhålla mer kunskap inom området. Därmed kan mätning av IMT och LD utvecklas och användas för förebyggande av kardiovaskulära sjukdomar.

    Oral health status of older adults in Sweden receiving elder care: Findings from nursing assessments2016Inngår i: Nursing Research, ISSN 0029-6562, E-ISSN 1538-9847, Vol. 65, nr 3, s. 215-223Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Frail elderly people often have poor oral hygiene, contributing to oral health problems that can detract significantly from quality of life.

    OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to describe oral health status of frail elderly individuals using the Revised Oral Assessment Guide-Jönköping (ROAG-J), a mouth assessment instrument that can be used in daily nursing care.

    METHODS: Data were obtained from the Swedish Senior Alert quality registry in one Swedish municipality. ROAG-J assessments on admission to elder care and one subsequent occasion were used. ROAG-J measurements documented oral health in nine areas: voice, lips, oral mucosa, tongue, gums, teeth, saliva, swallowing, and presence of any prostheses or implants. Assessments were made by nursing staff during the course of daily nursing care.

    RESULTS: Individuals 65 years of age or older and receiving elder care services (N = 667) were involved; 1,904 assessments made between November 2011 and March 2014 were used for the analysis. On the basis of both assessments, less than one third of participants had oral health problems. No significant difference in any of the oral health variables was found between first and subsequent assessments. At first assessment, men and women differed in tongue health (p < .01); at the subsequent assessment, gender differences in voice (p < .05), mucous membranes (p < .003), tongue (p < .01), and saliva (p < .006) were observed.

    DISCUSSION: Most participants had good oral health. Assessments made by nursing staff using the ROAG-J demonstrate that this tool can be used in daily nursing care, where different, important oral conditions may be encountered. However, knowledge about oral health conditions and the ROAG-J instrument is important to ensure high validity. The ROAG-J enables nursing staff to detect problems in the mouth and to guide decisions related to oral health interventions.

    Is an oral health coaching programme a way to sustain oral health for elderly people in nursing homes: A feasibility study2020Inngår i: International Journal of Dental Hygiene, ISSN 1601-5029, E-ISSN 1601-5037, s. 107-115Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objectives

    This study examines the feasibility of an oral health coaching programme involving practical support on individual level to staff in a nursing home in Sweden, aiming to improve oral health care‐related beliefs of nursing staff and the oral health of residents.

    Methods

    This intervention study consisted of three wards from one nursing home, and both staff (n = 48) and residents (n = 58) were invited. In the control ward, 9 staff and 16 residents participated; in test ward 1, 10 staff and 13 residents participated; and at test ward 2, 14 staff and 17 residents participated. An oral health coaching programme was performed 4 h/wk for 3 months. The staff completed the nursing Dental Coping Beliefs Scale at baseline and after 9 months. Oral health of the residents was assessed using the Revised Oral Assessment Guide and mucosal‐plaque score at baseline and after 3, 6 and 9 months.

    Results

    At baseline, 33 staff participated and 22 at 9 months follow‐up. For the residents, the figures were 48 and 32, respectively. After the intervention, the nursing DCBS revealed changes related to usage of fluoride, oral health support, gum disease and approximal cleaning. The most frequently reported oral health problems among the residents pertained to teeth and gums. The residents’ relatively high level of oral health was stable during the study period.

    Conclusions

    Despite limitations in the programme, an oral health coaching programme can support nursing staff in maintaining a high level of oral health in residents. The programme was shown feasible, although design improvements are needed.

    Abstract

    Prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis in STI-samples from Västra Götaland county with Aptima™ TV Assay on Panther™ System

    Also, evaluation of Aptima™ TV Assay on Panther™ System with comparison with Xpert® TV Kit on GeneXpert®

    Trichomonas vaginalis is a parasite that is spread by sexual contact, it is also the biggest sexually transmitted infection in both the United States and Europe. The prevalence in Sweden today is unknown as no national basic data exist. The routine procedure of identification is Wet-Smear although nucleic acid amplification enable a higher level of specificity and sensitivity. Panther™ System and GeneXpert® are two systems using RNA respectively DNA for analysis. The objective of the study was primarily to investigate the prevalence of Trichomonas vaginalis in STI-samples from Västra Götaland county with Aptima™ TV Assay on Panther™ System and secondarily to evaluate Aptima™ TV Assay with comparison to Xpert® TV Kit on GeneXpert®. The evaluation and prevalence study took place at Clinical Microbiology, Unilabs AB, Skaraborgs Hospital Skövde during the period of April-May 2017. The results of the evaluation indicate that Aptima™ TV Assay is specific for Trichomonas vaginalis and that the sensitivity falls within the detection limits for the kit. Therefore, the kit is suitable for use in the prevalence study. The prevalence study displayed a positive outcome on two out of 606 analyzed patient samples, corresponding to 0.3%. The conclusion is that the prevalence is enough for further studies.

    Can physical activity compensate for low socioeconomic status with regard to poor self-rated health and low quality-of-life?2019Inngår i: Health and Quality of Life Outcomes, ISSN 1477-7525, E-ISSN 1477-7525, Vol. 17, nr 1, s. 1-10, artikkel-id 33Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    BACKGROUND: Both high socioeconomic status (SES) and high physical activity (PA) are associated with better self-rated health (SRH) and higher quality-of-life (QoL).

    AIM: To investigate whether high levels of PA may compensate for the association between low SES and subjective health outcomes in terms of poorer SRH and lower QoL.

    METHOD: Data from a cross-sectional, population-based study (n = 5326) was utilized. Multiple logistic regression models were used to estimate odds ratios (OR) and 95% confidence intervals (95% CI) for the associations between indicators of SES (economic situation and educational level), SRH and QoL, as well as between the combination of SES and PA in relation to SRH and QoL.

    RESULT: Participants with high PA and economic problems had approximately the same OR for good SRH as those with low PA and without economic problems (OR 1.75 [95% CI 1.20-2.54] and 1.81 [1.25-2.63] respectively). Participants with high PA and low education had higher odds for good SRH (OR 3.34 [2.96-5.34] compared to those with low PA and high education (OR 1.46 [0.89-2.39]).Those with high PA and economic problems had an OR of 2.09 [1.42-3.08], for high QoL, while the corresponding OR for those with low PA and without economic problems was 4.38 [2.89-6.63].

    CONCLUSION: Physically active people with low SES, had the same or even better odds to report good SRH compared to those with low PA and high SES. For QoL the result was not as consistent. The findings highlight the potential for promotion of PA to reduce SES-based inequalities in SRH.

    Weak relationship between ionized and total magnesium in serum of patients requiring magnesium status2007Inngår i: Biological Trace Element Research, ISSN 0163-4984, E-ISSN 1559-0720, Vol. 115, nr 1, s. 13-21Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Measurement and monitoring of magnesium (Mg) are important to prevent the development of serious and potentially fatal complications in critically ill patients. Although ion-selective electrodes are available and earlier reports suggest that free ionized magnesium (iMg2+) is the most useful test to estimate Mg status, most clinical laboratories still only measure total Mg. To compare the relationship among iMg2+, total Mg, and albumin in serum, samples were collected from 48 consecutive patients admitted to an intensive care unit or a primary health center. The mean serum level of iMg2+ in 44 patients was 0.53 mmol/L, the total Mg was 0.96 mmol/L, and the albumin was 34.93 g/L. The correlation between iMg2+ and total Mg in serum was r=0.585; the correlation between iMg2+ and albumin in serum was r=378; and the correlation between total Mg and albumin in serum was r=0.340. The mean percent iMg2+ in relation to total Mg in serum was calculated to be 55% in the patient samples. The important level of biologically active iMg2+ was not reflected upon analysis of total Mg in 25% of consecutive patients. This report shows that the correlation of iMg2+ and total Mg is weak, not only in critically ill patients but also in patients in whom Mg status is inquired as a whole.

    Weak associations between occupational physical activity and myocardial infarction2016Inngår i: Occupational and Environmental Medicine, BMJ Publishing Group Ltd, 2016, Vol. 73, s. A198-Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    IntroductionRecommendations regarding physical activity typically include both leisure time and occupational physical activity. However, the results of research on occupational physical activity and the association to myocardial infarction are inconsistent. The aim of this study was to investigate if occupational physical activity affects the risk of myocardial infarction.

    Method In this prospective cohort study, data from the WOLF study are analysed. In total, 9,961 employees having no history of myocardial infarction were followed from inclusion to their first incidence of myocardial infarction. Hazard ratios (HR) were estimated using Cox proportional hazard regression, for different levels of occupational physical activity in relation to the risk of myocardial infarction.

    Results A follow-up with a mean of 13.1 years found 249 cases of myocardial infarction. In analyses adjusted for age, sex and socio-economic status, participants standing and walking more than 50% of their working day had HR of 1.13 (95% CI: 0.83– 1.54), compared to participants seated more than 50% of their working day. The corresponding HR for participants whose work included lifting or carrying was 0.86 (95% CI: 0.59–1.24). Stratified analyses resulted in a significantly decreased risk for young people whose work included lifting or carrying, HR 0.37 (95% CI: 0.17–0.84), compared with younger persons who sat most of their working day.

    ConclusionOnly weak associations between occupational physical activity and the risk of myocardial infarction were observed in this study. A significant reduced risk were seen for young participants with work including lifting and carrying, but this result must be interpreted with caution due to few participants in the stratified analyses. Based on the results from this study, occupational physical activity does not seem to be enough for reducing the risk of myocardial infarction, which is an important message to people with high levels of occupational physical activity.

    Abstract [en]

    Objective Recommendations regarding physical activity typically include both leisure time and occupational physical activity. However, the results from previous studies on occupational physical activity and the association with myocardial infarction have been inconsistent. The aim of this study was to investigate if occupational physical activity is associated with the risk of myocardial infarction.

    Design Prospective cohort study.

    Participants Data from the Swedish Work, Lipids and Fibrinogen (WOLF) study was used, comprising 9961 employees (6849 men, 3112 women, mean age 42.7 years) having no history of myocardial infarction. The participants were categorised into 3 groups according to their level of occupational physical activity.

    Outcome Data regarding incident myocardial infarction were obtained from the Swedish National Patient Register and the Cause of Death Register. Cox proportional hazard regression was used for estimation of HRs for different levels of occupational physical activity in relation to the risk of myocardial infarction.

    Results During a mean follow-up of 13.1 years, 249 cases of incident myocardial infarction were identified. In analyses adjusted for age, sex and socioeconomic status, participants standing and walking more than 50% of their working day had an HR of 1.13 (95% CI 0.83 to 1.54), compared with participants seated more than 50% of their working day. The corresponding HR for participants whose work included lifting or carrying was 0.86 (95% CI 0.59 to 1.24). Further adjustment did not alter the results. Stratified analyses resulted in a significantly decreased risk for young people whose work included lifting or carrying, HR 0.37 (95% CI 0.17 to 0.84), compared with younger persons who sat most of their working day.

    Conclusions No significant association between occupational physical activity and the risk of myocardial infarction was observed in the total group of employees in this study. Based on the results from this study, occupational physical activity in general does not seem to be enough for reducing the risk of myocardial infarction.

    Metodutveckling av en vätskebaserad cytologisk metod vid preparering av exsudat: En jämförelse med konventionell cytologi2016Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Två huvudsakliga metodprinciper används inom cytologi för diagnostisering av cellförändringar, nämligen konventionell och vätskebaserad metod. De kan båda appliceras på såväl gynekologiska som icke-gynekologiska prover, där den senare bland annat omfattar olika sorters exsudat. Syftet med den här studien var att utveckla metoden för den vätskebaserade metoden så att etanolfixerade exsudat kunde prepareras och även påvisa bättre resultat än då de preparerats med konventionell metod. För att göra detta har 61 unika prover kategoriserade som exsudat preparerats totalt, varav 61 med konventionell metod, 54 med vätskebaserad metod och 22 med vätskebaserad metod med tillsats av ättiksyra. De färdiga glasen bedömdes sedan i mikroskop och gavs scorevärden utifrån fyra parametrar: mängden celler exklusive inflammatoriska celler; bedömbarheten av cellmorfologin; mängden inflammatorisk komponent samt mängden bakgrundsmaterial. Resultaten visade ingen förbättring mellan de glas som preparerats med konventionell eller vätskebaserad metod. Däremot visade resultaten för de ättiksyrabehandlade proverna på förbättrade scorevärden jämfört med de andra metoderna.

    Som slutsats drogs att vätskebaserad metod med tillsats av ättiksyra uppnår syftet eftersom det reducerar mängden bakgrundsmaterial, förekomst av ring på objektglasen samt vidhåller en god cellmorfologi, vilket gör proverna lättare att diagnostisera för cytodiagnostikerna.

    Patienters upplevelser utav den skriftliga informationen inför en CT-colonundersökning: En kvantitativ enkätstudie2018Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Computer tomography (CT) - colonundersökning är en undersökning som ökar alltmer på grund av att coloncancer blir mer uppmärksammat i dagens samhälle. Vid en CT-colonundersökning krävs det förberedelser som måste utföras för att undersökningen ska gå att genomföra. Det krävs en tydlig information till patienten så att denne förstår innebörden av förberedelserna. Syftet med studien är att undersöka om information som patienterna får ta del av inför en CT-colonundersökning är tillräcklig, samt jämföra om patienternas upplevelse av informationen skiljer sig åt mellan två olika sjukhus och om det finns någon skillnad mellan ålder och kön. Även undersöka om det finns förbättringsförslag hos patienterna. Designen på studien var en kvantitativ enkätstudie med egenkonstruerade påståenden. Studien innefattade 51 deltagare som fick fylla i enkäten anonymt mellan perioden mars till april 2018. Majoriteten av deltagarna hade ett gott intryck av informationen och fann den därmed som tillräcklig. Mellan männen och kvinnorna fanns ingen skillnad i upplevelse av informationen. Enkätsvaren visade på att det inte råder någon skillnad mellan åldersgrupperna. Få deltagare hade åsikter om eventuella förbättringsområden men av de deltagare som velat utveckla informationen var det "minska mängden information" som flest deltagare funnit som en potentiell förbättring till patientinformationen. Resultatet visade att deltagarna var nöjda med informationen och att det inte fanns någon signifikant skillnad mellan sjukhusen, kön eller ålder.

    Immigrant background and orthodontic treatment need: Quantitative and qualitative studies in Swedish adolescents2010Doktoravhandling, med artikler (Annet vitenskapelig)
    Abstract [en]

    During the last three decades there has been an increased influx of refugees and immigrants into Scandinavia. The overall aim of this thesis was primarily to improve our knowledge of malocclusion and orthodontic treatment need, both normative and self-perceived, in adolescents of varying geographic origin. A further aim was to determine whether any differences with respect to perception of general appearance and psychosocial well-being were related to geographic origin.

    Papers I and II concerned self perceived and normative orthodontic treatment need. About 500 12-13 year-old subjects, stratified into different groups: A-Sweden, B-Eastern/Southeastern Europe, C-Asia and D-other countries, answered a questionnaire and underwent clinical examination by the author. In paper III the association between the two variables in papers I and II was investigated. Paper IV was a follow up study, at 18-19 years of age, of the relationship between geographic origin and prevalence of malocclusion, self-perceived treatment need, temporomandibular symptoms and psychosocial wellbeing. In Paper V a qualitative study of 19-20 year old subjects was conducted, to identify the strategies they had adopted to handle the issue of persisting poor dental aesthetics.

    The main findings were that at 12-13 years of age, immigrant subjects had a lower perceived orthodontic treatment need than subjects of Swedish background. Girls of Swedish background had the highest self perceived treatment need, whilst girls of non-Swedish background were most concerned that fixed appliance therapy would be painful. In a few of the clinical variables measured at 12-13 years of age, the Swedish group exhibited the greatest space deficiency and irregularity in both the maxillary and mandibular anterior segments and greater overjet, compared to the Eastern/Southeastern European and Asian groups. The clinical implications were negligible. The orthodontic treatment need according to “Index of Orthodontic Treatment Need - Dental HealthComponent” (IOTN-DHC) grades 4 and 5, ranged from 30 to 40 percent, without any inter-group differences. There were strong associations between subjects perceiving a need for orthodontic treatment and 6IOTN-DHC grades 4 and 5, anterior crossbite and avoiding smiling because they were self-conscious about their teeth. At the age of 18-19 years, the frequency of malocclusion was similar in all groups. Subjects of Asian origin had a higher self-perceived orthodontic treatment need than their Swedish counterparts and a higher frequency of headache than those of Eastern/Southeastern European origin. Psychological wellbeing was reduced in nearly one quarter of the sample, more frequently in girls than boys. No association was found between self-perceived orthodontic treatment need and psychological wellbeing.

    The theory “Being under the pressure of social norms” was generated in Paper V, and it can be applied to improve our understanding of young adults who have adjusted to living with poor dental aesthetics and also aid to identify those who are not as well-adjusted and would probably benefit from treatment. Undisclosed dental fear is an important barrier to acceptance of orthodontic treatment in early adolescence. Despite demographic changes due to immigration, no major change in the prevalence of malocclusion and normative orthodontic treatment need has been disclosed. This does not apply to adolescents and adults who immigrated at an older age.

    Prevalence of and factors related to mild and substantial dizziness in community-dwelling older adults: A cross-sectional study2016Inngår i: BMC Geriatrics, ISSN 1471-2318, E-ISSN 1471-2318, Vol. 16, nr 1, artikkel-id 159Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background

    Dizziness is highly prevalent among older people and associated with many health factors. The aim of the study was to determine the prevalence of and factors related to dizziness among community-dwelling older adults in Sweden. In contrast to previous studies, the subjects with dizziness were divided into two groups, mild and substantial dizziness, according to the frequency and intensity of dizziness.

    Methods

    A sample of 305 older persons between 75 and 90 years of age (mean age 81 years) were interviewed and examined. Subjects with dizziness answered the University of California Los Angeles Dizziness Questionnaire and questions about provoking movements. The groups with substantial, mild, or no dizziness were compared with regard to age, sex, diseases, drugs, blood pressure, physical activity, exercises, falls, fear of falling, quality of life, general health, mobility aids, and physical performance.

    Results

    In this sample, 79 subjects experienced substantial and 46 mild dizziness. Subjects with substantial dizziness were less physically active, reported more fear of falling, falls, depression/anxiety, diabetes, stroke/TIA, heart disease, a higher total number of drugs and antihypertensive drugs, lower quality of life and general health, and performed worse physically.

    Conclusions

    There are many and complex associations between dizziness and factors like falls, diseases, drugs, physical performance, and activity. For most of these factors, the associations are stronger in subjects with substantial dizziness compared with subjects with mild or no dizziness; therefore, it is relevant to differ between mild and substantial dizziness symptoms in research and clinical practice in the future.

    Test–retest reliability of the Swedish version of the life-space assessment questionnaire among community-dwelling older adults2014Inngår i: Clinical Rehabilitation, ISSN 0269-2155, E-ISSN 1477-0873, Vol. 28, nr 8, s. 817-823Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Objective: To examine the test–retest reliability of the Swedish version of the Life-Space Assessment Questionnaire.

    Design: Test–retest reliability study.

    Subjects: A total of 298 community-dwelling subjects between 75 and 90 years of age.

    Methods: The Life-Space Assessment Questionnaire was translated into Swedish. By personal interviews during home visits and two weeks later by telephone interviews the subjects were asked about their life-space mobility during the past four weeks, and how often and whether they were independent or needed assistance from another person or equipment to reach different life-space levels.

    Results: None of the four scoring methods showed significant difference between test sessions. The mean (SD) total scores were 65 (22) and 65 (23) out of the maximum possible score of 120 at the two sessions. High levels were found for independent, assisted, and maximal life-space at both sessions. Intraclass correlation coefficients and weighted Kappa-values between 0.84–0.94 were found for the total score, the independent, and the assisted life-space levels, indicating good to excellent reliability. A lower Kappa-value was observed for the maximal life-space level, mainly owing to skewed distributions. The method error values showed that a change of 10 in the total score and a change of one level in any of the three life-space levels can be considered to indicate a real change in clinical practice.

    Conclusion: The Swedish version of the Life-Space Assessment Questionnaire can be reliably used among community-dwelling older adults.

    Test-retest reliability of the Swedish version of the Life-Space Assessment Questionnaire among community-dwelling older adults2014Inngår i: Age well: Challenges for individual and society, 2014Konferansepaper (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    Background: Mobility is a vitally important activity throughout life. Advanced age carries increased risk of experiencing decreased mobility, with associated activity limitations and participation restrictions in social events. The Life-Space Assessment (LSA), originally developed by Sawyer Baker and colleagues in the U.S.A., has been used to measure mobility in community dwelling older adults. The LSA includes six levels of life-space, ranging from the person's bedroom to places beyond the person's hometown. A total LSA score is obtained by multiplying the life-space level reached by a value for independence and a value for the frequency of transportations. Three additional measures of life-space levels can be calculated: the independent life-space level; the assistive life-space level; and the maximal life-space level. Objective: To examine the test-retest reliability of the Swedish version of the Life-Space Assessment Questionnaire. Methods: At two test sessions, two weeks apart, 298 community-dwelling subjects between 75 and 90 years of age were asked about their life-space mobility during the past four weeks, and how often and whether they were independent from another person or equipment to reach different life-space levels. Results: None of the four scoring methods showed significant differences between test sessions. The mean total scores were 65 out of the maximum possible score of 120 at both test sessions. High levels were also found for independent, assisted, and maximal life-space at both sessions. ICC coefficients and weighted Kappa values between 0.84-0.94 were found for the total score, the independent and the assisted life-space levels indicating good to excellent reliability. The method error values showed that a change of 10 in the total score and a change of one level in any of the three life-space levels can be considered to indicate a real change in clinical practice. Conclusion: The Swedish version of the Life-Space Assessment Questionnaire can be reliably used among community-dwelling older adults.

    Prevalensen av HPA1a-negativa blodgivare i Jönköpings- och Östergötlands län med flödescytometrisk fenotypning2019Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 poäng / 15 hpOppgave
    Abstract [sv]

    Humana trombocytantigen (Human Platelet Antigens, HPA) är genetiska polymorfismer som uttrycks på trombocyters membranglykoproteiner. Om icke-kompatibla trombocytantigen införs i blodcirkulationen kan alloimmunisering uppstå där antikroppar produceras mot främmande antigen, det kan därför vara av betydelse att registrera blodgivares antigen. Studiens syfte var att utvärdera prevalensen av HPA1a-negativa blodgivare i Jönköpings- och Östergötlands län med hjälp av flödescytometrisk fenotypning. Studien inkluderade totalt 300 blodgivare, varav 150 från Jönköpings län och 150 från Östergötlands län. Fluorokrommärkta antikroppar riktade mot CD42a och CD61 användes för att detektera HPA1a-negativitet med flödescytometrisk metod. I Jönköpings län detekterades fyra (2,7 %) HPA1a-negativa blodgivare och i Östergötlands län detekterades sex (4,0 %) HPA1a-negativa blodgivare. Statistisk analys visade ingen signifikant skillnad mellan antal HPA1a-negativa blodgivare i de undersökta länen. Länens prevalens av HPA1a-negativitet motsvarade den genomsnittliga prevalensen i Sverige och nya HPA1a-negativa blodgivare har registrerats vilket är en viktig tillgång då patienter är i behov av trombocytkoncentrat. Då studien begränsades av dess ringa storlek samt att kvinnor exkluderats bör vidare studier med större populationer och fler län i Sverige utföras.

    Caries incidence and risk assessment during a five-year period in adolescents living in south-eastern Sweden2020Inngår i: International Journal of Dental Hygiene, ISSN 1601-5029, E-ISSN 1601-5037, Vol. 18, nr 1, s. 92-98Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert)
    Abstract [en]

    OBJECTIVES: The aim was to examine the caries incidence in adolescents using the Public Dental Service (PDS) during a 5-year period in relation to their caries experience at baseline and risk classification.

    METHODS: A five-year retrospective cohort study based of the dental records from 17 PDS clinics in southeastern Sweden was conducted; 159 individuals born in 1997 were included, and their caries risk was classified at 12 and 17 years of age. Caries prevalence and documented risk groups were assessed at baseline and after five years.

    RESULTS: The increment of caries (both initial and manifest caries) was higher, to a statistically significant degree, after five years in adolescents who were recorded as caries-free at baseline compared to individuals with caries at baseline (p<0.001). In individuals with caries at baseline, the greatest increment of caries was found at approximal sites (p<0.001). At baseline, individuals were classified as low (94%), medium (6%) and high risk (0%). After five years, the figures were 74%, 20% and 6%, respectively. Although classified in a low-caries-risk group, 9% had ≥ 6 decayed or filled surfaces at baseline, and 23% did after five years. Approximately 62% of individuals were registered as caries-free at baseline, and 45% were after five years.

    CONCLUSIONS: There was an increase in caries over five years, especially among adolescents without caries experience at baseline. The majority of adolescents had the same risk classification after five years. Further research with a larger sample size is needed to evaluate risk assessment for caries.
