  • Nonrandom pattern of chromosome aberrations in 17beta-estradiol-induced rat mammary tumors: indications of distinct pathways for tumor development.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: Genes, chromosomes & cancer. - 1045-2257. ; 46:5, s. 459-69
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Estrogens play an important role in breast cancer etiology and the ACI rat provides a novel animal model for defining the mechanisms through which estrogens contribute to mammary cancer development. In crossing experiments between the susceptible ACI strain and two resistant strains, COP (Copenhagen) and BN (Brown Norway), several quantitative trait loci (QTL) that affect development of 17b-estradiol (E2)-induced mammary tumors have been defined. Using comparative genomic hybridization (CGH), we have analyzed cytogenetic aberrations in E2-induced mammary cancers and have found clear patterns of nonrandom chromosomal involvement. Approximately two thirds of the tumors exhibited copy number changes. Losses of rat chromosome 5 (RNO5) and RNO20 were particularly common, and it was found that these two aberrations often occurred together. A third recurrent aberration involving proximal gain and distal loss in RNO6 probably defined a distinct subgroup of tumors, since it never occurred in combination with RNO5 loss. Interestingly, QTL with powerful effects on mammary cancer development have been mapped to RNO5 and RNO6. These findings suggest that there were at least two genetic pathways to tumor formation in this rat model of E2-induced mammary cancer. By performing CGH on mammary tumors from ACI rats, F1 rats from crosses between the ACI and COP or BN strains and ACI.BN-Emca8 congenic rats, which carry the BN allele of the Emca8 QTL on RNO5 on the ACI genetic background, we were able to determine that the constitution of the germ line influences the pattern of chromosomal aberrations.

  • Oncogene amplification in the proximal part of chromosome 6 in rat endometrial adenocarcinoma as revealed by combined BAC/PAC FISH, chromosome painting, zoo-FISH, and allelotyping.
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Genes, chromosomes & cancer. - 1045-2257. ; 44:2, s. 139-53
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The inbred BDII rat is a valuable experimental model for the genetic analysis of endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC). One common aberration detected by comparative genomic hybridization in rat EAC was gain/amplification affecting the proximal part of rat chromosome 6 (RNO6). We applied rat and mouse chromosome painting probes onto tumor cell metaphase preparations in order to detect and characterize gross RNO6 aberrations. In addition, the RNO6q11-q16 segment was analyzed by fluorescence in situ hybridization with probes representing 12 cancer-related genes in the region. The analysis revealed that seven tumors contained large RNO6-derived homogeneously staining regions (HSRs) in addition to several normal or near-normal RNO6 chromosomes. Five tumors (two of which also had HSRs) exhibited a selective increase of the RNO6q11-q16 segment, sometimes in conjunction with moderate amplification of one or a few genes. Most commonly, the amplification affected the region centered around band 6q16 and included the Mycn, Ddx1, and Rrm2 genes. A second region, centering around Slc8a1 and Xdh, also was affected by gene amplification but to a lesser extent. The aberrations in the proximal part of RNO6 were further analyzed using allelotyping of microsatellite markers in all tumors from animals that were heterozygous in the proximal RNO6 region. We could detect allelic imbalance (AI) in 12 of 20 informative tumors, 6 of which were in addition to those already analyzed by molecular cytogenetic methods as described. Our findings suggest that increase/amplification of genes in this chromosome region contribute to the development of this hormone-dependent tumor.

  • Rearrangement and allelic imbalance on chromosome 5 leads to homozygous deletions in the CDKN2A/2B tumor suppressor gene region in rat endometrial cancer
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Cancer Genetics and Cytogenetics. - 0165-4608. ; 184:1, s. 9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The inbred BDII rat is a valuable experimental model for the genetic analysis of hormone-dependent endometrial adenocarcinoma (EAC). One common aberration detected previously by comparative genomic hybridization in rat EAC is loss affecting mostly the middle part of rat chromosome 5 (RNO5). First, we applied an RNO5-specific painting probe and four region-specific gene probes onto tumor cell metaphases from 21 EACs, and found that rearrangements involving RNO5 were common. The copy numbers of loci situated on RNO5 were found to be reduced, particularly for the CDKN2A/2B locus. Second, polymerase chain reaction analysis was performed with 22 genes and markers and homozygous deletions of the CDKN2A exon 1? and CDKN2B genes were detected in 13 EACs (62%) and of CDKN2A exon 1? in 12 EACs (57%) Third, the occurrence of allelic imbalance in RNO5 was analyzed using 39 microsatellite markers covering the entire chromosome and frequent loss of heterozygosity was detected. Even more intriguing was the repeated finding of allele switching in a narrow region of 7 Mb across the CDKN2A/2B locus. We conclude that genetic events affecting the middle part of RNO5 (including bands 5q31<img src="http://www.sciencedirect.com/scidirimg/entities/223c.gif" />q33 and the CDKN2A locus) contribute to the development of EAC in rat, with the CDKN2A locus having a primary role.

  • Midwives' experiences of doula support for immigrant women in Sweden : A qualitative study
  • 2012
  • Ingår i: Midwifery. - Elsevier. - 0266-6138. ; 28:1, s. 80-85
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: to describe and analyse midwives’ experiences of doula support for immigrant women in Sweden. Design: qualitative study, analysed using content analysis. Data were collected via interviews. Setting: interviews were conducted at the midwives’ workplaces. One midwife was interviewed at a cafe. Participants: ten midwives, who participated voluntarily and worked in maternity health care in western Sweden. Findings: the interview data generated three main categories. (1) ‘A doula is a facilitator for the midwife’ has two subcategories, ‘In relation to the midwife’ and ‘In comparison with an interpreter’, (2) ‘Confident women giving support, ’has two subcategories, ‘Personal characteristics and attitudes’ and ‘Good support,’ (3) ‘Doulas cover shortcomings’ has two subcategories, ‘In relation to maternity care’ and ‘In relation to ethnicity’. Key conclusion and implications for practice: The findings of this study show that midwives experience that doulas are a facilitator for them. Doulas provide support by enhancing the degree of peace and security and improving communication with the women in childbirth. Doulas provide increased opportunities for transcultural care. They may increase childbearing women’s confidence and satisfaction, help meet the diverse needs of childbearing women and improve care quality.

  • Advanced Practice Nurses - a new resource for Swedish primary health care teams.
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: International Journal of Nursing Practice. - 1440-172X. ; 17:2, s. 174-180
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Advanced practice nurses: A new resource for Swedish primary health-care teams This study is associated with the first evaluation of the four first advanced practice nurses (APNs), part of a primary health-care team in Sweden. The aim is to describe health-care teams' experiences of the new APN role and investigate what opportunities and barriers to the role exist. Eighty-one respondents answered a 14-question questionnaire with a Likert scale and one open-ended question. The Kruskal-Wallis test was used to investigate differences between professional groups' answers. The qualitative material was analysed using deductive content analysis. Though mostly positive experiences of the role were found, differences did exist between the professional groups. APNs are considered a resource in that access to care, cooperation and patient flow increased. Barriers include APNs' limited autonomy and inability to prescribe medication. To further develop the role, the right to prescribe medication and strategic leadership within the Swedish health-care system, policy and legislation are needed.

  • Vitamin and mineral status in elderly patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
  • 2007
  • Ingår i: The Clinical Respiratory Journal. ; 1, s. 23-29
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Introduction: Eating problems are common in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and intake of micronutrients might be lower than recommended. Objective: To study dietary intake, serum and urinary concentration of trace elements and vitamins in elderly underweight patients with established severe COPD. Methods: Outpatients at a university clinic for lung medicine, with COPD, 70-85 years old, with no other serious disease, and with a body mass index (BMI) of similar to 20 kg/m(2) and an FEV(1) of &lt; 50 % predicted were recruited. Body composition and bone density were evaluated with dual energy X-ray absorptiometry. Dietary intake was studied by a trained dietitian using diet-history interview. Blood and urine samples were analysed for various vitamins and trace elements. Results: Seventeen of 30 recruited patients took part. Osteoporosis or osteopaenia was found in 16 patients. Dietary intake of energy and macronutrients was in line with recommendations for healthy individuals. Intake of protein did not meet recommendations for COPD patients. Intake of polyunsaturated fatty acids was lower than recommended and intake of saturated fatty acids was higher than recommended. Mean intake of vitamin D and folic acid was far below recommendations. Serum concentrations for folic acid and methylmalonate and plasma concentrations for homocysteine were below normal in several patients. Conclusion: Intake of vitamin D and calcium is often low in older COPD patients, which might contribute to osteoporosis. Low intake of folic acid might also be a problem. The results support prophylaxis with calcium, vitamin D and folic acid.

  • Modalitet och förändring : En studie av må och kunna i fornsvenska
  • 2007
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • This thesis investigates the development of root and non-root meanings of modal verbs through an empirical study of the verbs må and kunna in Old Swedish. Modality is taken to refer domains in which possibility contrasts with necessity. In Old Swedish, må (magha) and kunna 'may' and kunna 'can' have the potential to express most of the meanings relating to possibility and necessity, as well as lexical meanings.The two verbs are investigated in an Old Swedish corpus consisting of legal and religious texts. Certain default correlations between type of modal and semantic and syntatic enviroments, which have been proposed in the litterature, are investigated.The result shows that må frequently expresses participant-internal possibility, 'ability' and deonic possibility, 'permission', whereas kunna is mainly associated with participant-internal and general external possibility. Of particular interest is the use of må in conditions, which provides evidence that this construction type may have played a bridging role in the development on non-root modality.Using the framework of force dynamics, the development of modal meaning is analysed as a metamorphical transfer of one consistent image-schema between different conceptual domains. the schematic components are described in terms of forces and barriers. The proposed transfer from a physical to a social domain and further on to a mental and a conversional domain provides a good account of the diachronic development.

  • It's up to me! Experiences of living with pre-diabetes and the increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes mellitus
  • 2008
  • Ingår i: Primary Care Diabetes. - Amsterdam : Elsevier. - 1751-9918. ; 2:4, s. 187-193
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Aims: To explore experiences of pre-diabetes and the associated increased risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus. Methods: Eight participants with pre-diabetes were interviewed for a 45-60 min period. The interviews were audio taped, transcribed verbatim and analysed using a phenomenological hermeneutic approach. Results: Living with pre-diabetes means existing on the borderline of being healthy and suffering from T2DM. Three themes were formulated; "seeing possibilities in an uncertain future", "facing obstacles and loss of liberty" and "balancing between possibilities and obstacles" Being on the borderline and balancing between possibilities and obstacles were interpreted as a distressing feeling of being at increased risk of developing T2DM, although this feeling can change to one of either facing possibilities or facing obstacles. Conclusions: Special focus must be directed towards persons with pre-diabetes, as they are caught between possibilities and obstacles. Advanced care in the form of health dialogues can convince these people of their own abilities to influence the outcome of pre-diabetes. The result of this study can guide health care practitioners in comprehending each participant's understanding of the situation, thus helping them to create pedagogical dialogues in which patients' experiences, conceptions, explanations as well as explicit and implicit questions are identified. © 2008 Primary Care Diabetes Europe.

  • Med risk för diabetes
  • 2012
  • Doktorsavhandling (övrigt vetenskapligt)abstract
    • Background: Individuals with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) have a high risk of developing both type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and cardiovascular disease. T2DM is a common chronic disease in a global perspective, and it is estimated to continue to grow, which is a serious health problem. It is of significance to increase knowledge about persons with IGT to direct preventive activities more efficiently thus to limit its progression to T2DM.Aim: The overall aim was to describe experiences of living with the increased risk of type 2 diabetes, and to identify self-reported symptoms and bodily sensations associated to prediabetes by the persons themselves. Specific aim were to explore the associations between experiences of sleep, vitality and self-rated health, respectively, and IGT.Methods: The design was explorative and descriptive. Participants were randomly selected from a cross-sectional population-based survey in two municipalities in Southwestern of Sweden. Data were collected by means of interviews and a questionnaire about life-style and health.Results: Living with prediabetes means living in the borderline between health and type 2 diabetes. Living in the borderline and the balance between opportunities and obstacles were interpreted as a burdensome sense of living with increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes, although this feeling could be changed so you could see either opportunities or obstacles. Persons with IGT are experiencing symptoms, which they relate to their elevated plasma glucose level associated with IGT. The diagnosis in itself gave them something to relate to because they received confirmation and a possible explanation for their symptoms. In men a statistically significant age-adjusted association was found between self-reported lack of sleep and IGT: It did not weaken after further adjustment for BMI, smoking, education, and leisure time physical activity No such associations were found in females. Corresponding age-adjusted statistically significant associations between low vitality and IGT in both men and women were successively lost with multivariate adjustments. Both men and women with low self-rated health had a worse risk factor profile than those with high self-rated health and a statistically significant crude association between self-rated health and IGT. After controlling for major lifestyles factors and biomedical variables the association remained only in men.Conclusions: A special focus must be directed towards persons with prediabetes as they experience both opportunities and obstacles. Although prediabetes is often described as a condition without symptoms, persons with IGT experienced many symptoms, which they related to their IGT. Insufficient sleep and low self-rated health may be a risk factor for IGT in men. A generous sampling of plasma glucose, HbA1c and oral glucose tolerance tests is suggested, even in vague symptoms. There is a link between the measurable (signs) and the perceived in form of symptoms, interpreted as “the guiding feeling”. This should be considered in pedagogical encounters with patients to prevent the onset of type 2 diabetes.

  • Perceived symptoms in people living with impaired glucose tolerance.
  • 2011
  • Ingår i: Nursing Research and Practice. - 2090-1429. ; 2011:Article ID 937038
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • The aim of the study was to identify symptoms in people with impaired glucose tolerance (IGT) and describe their experiences of living with the symptoms which they related to their condition. Twenty-one participants, from a cross-sectional population-based study, diagnosed as having IGT, were invited for an interview. The interviews were analyzed in two phases by means of a manifest and latent content analysis. The narratives included seven categories of symptoms (and more than 25 different symptoms) presented by the respondents. This study shows that symptoms such as the patient's own interpretation of different perceptions in the body must be considered, as well as signs and/or objective observations. Symptoms ought to be seen as complementary components in the health encounter and health conversation. The results of this study indicate that health professionals should increase their awareness of the balance between the implicit and the explicit bodily sensations that individuals communicate. Further studies are needed.
