    Recommendations for treatment with specific antidementia drugs in Denmark are given on the basis of recent evidence. Such evidence supports treatment of mild to moderate Alzheimer's Disease (AD) with acetylcholinesterase inhibitors (AchEI), and moderate to severe AD with memantine. Combination...... therapy with these drugs can be considered in moderate AD. Dementia with Lewy bodies and Parkinson's disease with dementia should be treated with rivastigmine. There is not sufficient evidence to recommend treatment with AchEI or memantine in pure vascular dementia or frontotemporal dementia...

    An increasing number of people, with a significant part being children, is diagnosed with ADHD and treated with medication. A lack in the understanding of the etiology of the disor-der, the degree of the side effects of the medication, as well as some parent’s apprehen-siveness towards medicating their children, raises an interest in exploring alternative treat-ment. It turns out, that meditating can have a normalizing effect on areas of the brain, which is abnormal in people with ADHD. Furth...

The aim of the present study was evaluation of the association between post coronary bypass graft- Atrial Fibrillation (AF and Plasma level of NT- ProBNP as an independent risk factor of AF development in patients undergoing coronary artery bypass graft."n "nMethods: In a cohort study, 79 patients with sinus rhythm who admitted in Imam Khomeini Hospital in Tehran, Iran, during February 2009 and February 2010 for CABG are included the study and followed for developing post operative AF rhythm."n "nResults: Post operative AF was found in 17.7% of patients. The peak time from the operation to the first AF episode was in second post op day in ten patients (71.4%. The serum level of ProBNP in patients with AF was significantly higher (1624± 647 versus 221± 238 pg/ml, p< 0/0001. Increased age, Increased LA size and high plasma level of ProBNP were associated with increased risk for post op AF. After adjustment of risk factors, plasma level of ProBNP was the most important risk factor with odds ratio of 15.34 with CI 95% 1.77-132.95 and then LA diameter with odds ratio of 6.11 with CI 95% 0.99-37.42 was independently correlated with post op AF. Correlation between plasma level of ProBNP with age and LA size was seen too (LA size r = 0.0281, p= 0.012. Between age and ProBNP (r= 0.337, p= 0.002. The best cut off point for plasma ProBNP as a predictor of post op AF was 854 pg/ml."n "nConclusion: Increased level of preoperative ProBNP levels could be an independent predictor of post operative Atrial Fibrillation.

  20. Study on the changes of serum levels of ANF in patients with atrial fibrillation (AF)

    International Nuclear Information System (INIS)

    Objective: To study the changes of serum levels of ANF in patients with atrial fibrillation and to explore the mechanism of the prethrombotic state induced by AF. Methods: Serum levels of ANF were measured with RIA in 21 patients with isolated paroxysmal atrial fibrillation (IPAF) both during and one week after termination of the attack. Levels were also measured in 28 patients with isolated sustained atrial fibrillation (ISAF), 27 patients with rheumatic mitral stenosis associated with persistent AF (RHD), 32 patients with paroxysmal supraventricular tachycardia (PSVT) and 35 controls. Results: Serum levels of ANF and Hct% readings in: 1) patients with IPAF during attack 2) patients with ISAF and 3) patients with RHD were significantly higher than those in: 1) patients with IPAF one week after termination of the attack 2) patients with PSVT and 3) the controls (p<0.05). Values in patients with PSVT were not much different from those in controls. In patients with IPAF during the attack, serum ANF levels and Hct% readings were positively correlated to the duration of the attack. Serum ANF levels were not related to such parameters as: age, sex, mitral valve area, ejection fraction and inner diameter of left atrium. Conclusion: There is hemoconcentration in patients with atrial fibrillation, which is related to the hypersecretion of ANF in these patients

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Bergmann, Troels Korshøj; Mirza, Mansoor Raza; Andersen, Charlotte Brasch;

    Formål og baggrund: Paclitaxel (Taxol®) er et kemoterapeutikum der bruges til behandling af bl.a æggestokkræft. Paclitaxel doseres individuelt (175mg/m2) men alligevel er der klinisk betydende variation i forekomsten af bivirkninger (neurotoksicitet, kvalme/opkast, knoglemarvspåvirkning m.......fl). Vores hypotese er at en betydelig del af variationen skyldes genetiske forskelle mellem patienterne. Den hyppigste kilde til genetisk variation er single nukleotide polymorphisms ie SNPs. Vi vil undersøge om SNPs i gener der koder for proteiner der har betydning for transport og omsætning af paclitaxel...... mellem patienterne og fungerer således som dobbeltblindede randomiserede expositioner.

    2014-01-01

    Objectives To evaluate the association of digoxin with mortality in atrial fibrillation. Background Despite endorsement of digoxin in clinical practice guidelines, there exist limited data on its safety in atrial fibrillation and flutter (AF). Methods Using complete data from the US Department of Veterans Administration (VA) Health Care System, we identified patients with newly-diagnosed, non-valvular AF seen within 90 days in an outpatient setting between VA fiscal years 2004-2008. We used multivariate and propensity-matched Cox proportional hazards to evaluate the association of digoxin use to death. Residual confounding was assessed by sensitivity analysis. Results Of 122,465 patients with 353,168 person-years of follow-up (age 72.1±10.3 years, 98.4% males), 28,679 (23.4%) patients received digoxin. Cumulative mortality rates were higher for digoxin-treated patients than for untreated patients (95 vs. 67 per 1,000 person-years; P<0.001). Digoxin use was independently associated with mortality after multivariate adjustment (HR: 1.26, 95%CI: 1.23-1.29, P<0.001) and propensity matching (HR: 1.21, 95%CI: 1.17-1.25, P<0.001), even after adjustment for drug adherence. The risk of death was not modified by age, sex, heart failure, kidney function, or concomitant use of beta blockers, amiodarone, or warfarin. Conclusion Digoxin was associated with increased risk of death in patients with newly-diagnosed AF, independent of drug adherence, kidney function, cardiovascular comorbidities, and concomitant therapies. These findings challenge current cardiovascular society recommendations on use of digoxin in AF. PMID:25125296

    Der er gennemført en livscyklusbaseret miljøvurdering af genbrug af mursten. Modelleringen er baseret på, hvordan Virksomheden ”Gamle Mursten” forbereder de gamle mursten med henblik på, at de kan genbruges i nybyggeri. Som alternativ til direkte genbrug nedknuses murstensaffaldet og anvendes som...... fyldmateriale ved anlægsarbejder.

  18. AF Termination: the Holy Grail of Persistent AF Ablation?

    Directory of Open Access Journals (Sweden)

    Dennis H. Lau, MBBS

    2010-06-01

    Full Text Available The optimal catheter ablation approach for longstanding persistent atrial fibrillation (AF remains elusive despite significant advances made in our understanding of this arrhythmia. A recent systematic review highlighted the significant variation in procedural success rate both within and between techniques, necessitating repeat ablation procedures and anti-arrhythmic drugs to achieve improved outcomes in those with long-standing persistent AF.1 Indeed, current expert consensus statement recommended ablation beyond ostial pulmonary vein isolation for these patients.2 Despite incorporating various substrate modification techniques which commonly include linear lesions and targeting of complex fractionated electrograms, the reported success rates from various laboratories are still below par to those in paroxysmal AF patients.1 Perhaps the often dilated and chronically remodeled atria in longstanding persistent AF patients harbor complex structural substrates capable of maintaining the arrhythmia beyond amelioration even with extensive catheter ablation in some. Certainly, this reflects our incomplete understanding of the complex mechanisms underlying this arrhythmia.

  14. [Reducing the side effects of aggressive chemotherapy (cisplatin and epirubicin) with xenogenic peptides (factor AF2) in patients with hormone refractory metastatic prostate cancer. A prospective, randomized study].

    Papadopoulos, I; Wand, H

    1989-06-01

    The indication of a chemotherapy is advisable with patients who are suffering from a progressively metastasised, secondarily hormone refractory carcinoma of the prostate. In search of efficient chemotherapy protocols we combined cisplatin with epirubicin (PE scheme) in our clinic. Massive side effects of that aggressive chemotherapy scheme like gastro-intestinal trouble and myelotoxicity are the limiting factors of the scheme. With measures like reducing the dosage, delaying the next cycle, or breaking off the therapy the effective dosage can often not be achieved. The anti-emetics which are usually used today exclusively give anti-emetic protection. The additional administration of xenogenic peptides (Factor AF2) had additionally myeloprotective effect in former studies. In this study we examined whether, by additionally giving Factor AF2, the patients' subjective condition, and above all their hemogram, could be stabilised in order to achieve the effective dosage or dosage intensity. For that, the patients were prospectively randomised in two groups by means of a random selection board. The analysis of the data gained in the protocol showed that the additional administration of Factor AF2 improves the patients' subjective conditions significantly. Apart from that, we noticed a considerable reduction of the vomiting frequency. Concerning the objective measured parameters of the leukocytes, thrombocytes, erythrocytes, and the hemoglobin level, the significantly myeloprotective effect of Factor AF2 could be proved. Due to the fact that in the verum group there were considerably fewer cases of breaking off or delays of the treatment than in the control group, the effective dosage intensity could be achieved with a higher number of patients in that group.

  20. Improvement of impaired mitogen-induced interferon-gamma release of peripheral blood mononuclear cells derived from tumor patients by Factor AF2.

    Science.gov (United States)

    Baier, J E; Neumann, H A; Gallati, H; Ricken, D

    1991-01-01

    Factor AF2, a now standardized extract from liver and spleen of newborn lambs, showed myeloprotective capacity on platelet- and erythrocyte-count as well as on hemoglobinconcentration in patients undergoing aggressive chemotherapy. In addition, a possible influence on prolonged remission duration in patients with mammary carcinoma had been claimed. In this study, the effect of Factor AF2 on mitogen-induced interferon-gamma release by PBMC was tested in 23 healthy humans and in 23 tumor patients. All patients were prior to surgery and had not yet received radio- or chemotherapy at the time of examination. The interferon-gamma concentration of the supernatants was measured using an enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The cells were stimulated with PHA at 7.5 micrograms/ml. In the reference group, interferon-gamma concentration rose to 26 units/ml and to 15.5 units/ml in the tumor patients. In the reference persons, an addition of Factor AF2 at concentrations from 10(1) micrograms/ml to 10(3) micrograms/ml resulted in a small non-significant decrease of interferon-gamma release. At 10(4) micrograms/ml, neither test group showed measurable interferon-gamma concentration. In the tumor patients, cocultivation with Factor AF2 until concentration of 10(2) micrograms/ml resulted in a dose-dependent increase of interferon-gamma release, where 20.5 units/ml interferon-gamma were reached. At 10(3) micrograms/ml, Factor AF2 showed no effect on interferon-gamma release compared with the stimulation with mitogen alone. Flow-cytometry analysis of CD3, CD4, CD8, CD16, CD19, CD56, and HLA-DR expression of the PBMC deriving either from reference persons or from patients revealed an almost identical distribution. A slight difference in CD16-positive and HLA-DR positive cells, respectively, was not significant. PMID:1788474

    Intrauterine insemination with cryopreserved donor semen was performed in 114 women in a total of menstrual 381 cycles during the period 1.2.1991 to 15.5.1993. Eighty-one pregnancies were recorded corresponding to a conception rate of 21% per insemination cycle. After ten cycles the probability of...... conception and expected delivery was respectively 96% and 86%. The results show that intrauterine insemination with donor semen is a good treatment for couples with male infertility. Ultrasonic measurement of the follicles and timing of hCG injection were used for optimal timing of intrauterine donor...... insemination. The quality of the semen used for insemination is important. It is recommended to inseminate with at least two million of spermatozoa where at least 20% have normal motility....

    GLP-1 is secreted from the small intestine in response to ingestion of nutrients. It has a powerful insulinotropic effect and stimulates beta-cell growth and is therefore being developed for treatment of type 2 diabetes. The GLP-1 analogue, exenatide, is on the market in the USA as an add......-on therapy. Another strategy to increase circulating GLP-1 is to inhibit the enzyme DPP-IV which degrades endogenous GLP-1. GLP-1-based therapy results in HbA1c reductions of approximately 1 percent point, and the lack of serious side effects and the low risk of hypoglycaemic episodes are unique traits....

    Full Text Available The optimal catheter ablation approach for long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation (AF remains elusive despite significant advances made in our understanding of this arrhythmia. A recent systematic review highlighted the significant variation in procedural success rate both within and between techniques, necessitating repeat ablation procedures and anti-arrhythmic drugs to achieve improved outcomes in those with long-standing persistent AF . Indeed, current expert consensus statement recommended ablation beyond ostial pulmonary vein isolation for these patients . Despite incorporating various substrate modification techniques which commonly include linear lesions and targeting of complex fractionated electrograms, the reported success rates from various laboratories are still below par to those in paroxysmal AF patients.

  12. A cohort study of relationship between serum calcium levels and cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) in ischemic stroke patients with AF and/or RHD.

    Calcium is an essential element for life and has cerebroprotective property in stroke patients. Low serum calcium levels were found to be related to large hematoma volumes in intracerebral hemorrhagic patients and hemorrhagic transformation in ischemic stroke patients after thrombolysis. However, their impact on hemorrhage-prone small vessel disease represented by cerebral microbleeds (CMBs) is uncertain. We aim to investigate whether low serum calcium levels are associated with presence and location of CMBs.Ischemic stroke patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and/or rheumatic heart disease admitted to our hospital were consecutively and prospectively enrolled. Demographic and clinical information were collected and analyzed according to the occurrence and location of CMBs, and levels of serum calcium. We used logistic regression analysis to estimate the multivariable adjusted relationship between serum calcium levels and the presence or location of CMBs.Among the 67 patients (28 males; mean age, 67.3 years) in the final analysis, 39 (58.2%) were found to have CMBs. After adjustment for age, sex, smoking habits, drinking habits, and renal impairment, the presence of CMBs and deep CMBs was, respectively, 4.96- and 4.83-fold higher in patients with lower serum calcium levels (≤2.15 mmol/L) than in patients with higher serum calcium levels.Lower serum calcium levels (≤2.15 mmol/L) are independently associated with the presence of CMBs and deep CMBs in ischemic stroke patients with AF and/or rheumatic heart disease, which should be verified and extended in large cohorts, with other types of stroke patients and the general population.

    Left atrial appendage closure with the WATCHMAN device is an alternative to anticoagulation for stroke prevention in selected patients with atrial fibrillation (AF). LA device-related thrombus (DRT) is poorly defined and understood. We aimed to (1) develop consensus echocardiographic diagnostic criteria for DRT; (2) estimate the incidence of DRT; and (3) determine clinical event rates in patients with DRT. In phase 1 (training), a training manual was developed and reviewed by 3 echocardiographers with left atrial appendage closure device experience. All available transesophageal (TEE) studies in the WATCHMAN left atrial appendage system for embolic protection in patients with atrial fibrillation (PROTECT-AF) trial patients with suspected DRT were reviewed in 2 subsequent phases. In phase 2 (primary blind read), each reviewer independently scored each study for DRT, and final echo criteria were developed. Unanimously scored studies were considered adjudicated, whereas all others were reevaluated by all reviewers in phase 3 (group adjudication read). DRT was suspected in 35 of 485 patients by the site investigator, the echocardiography core laboratory, or both; 93 of the individual TEE studies were available for review. In phase 2, 3 readers agreed on 67 (72%) of time points. Based on phases 1 and 2, 5 DRT criteria were developed. In phase 3, studies without agreement in phase 2 were adjudicated using these criteria. Overall, at least 1 TEE was DRT positive in 27 (5.7%) PROTECT-AF patients. Stroke, peripheral embolism, or cardiac/unexplained death occurred in subjects with DRT at a rate of 3.4 per 100 patient-years follow-up. In conclusion, DRT were identified on at least 1 TEE in 27 PROTECT-AF patients, indicating a DRT incidence of 5.7%. Primary efficacy events in patients with DRT occurred at a rate of 3.4 per 100 patient-years follow-up, intermediate in frequency between event rates previously reported for the overall device and warfarin arms in PROTECT-AF.

    Full Text Available OBJETIVO: verificar o desempenho de pacientes afásicos com distúrbios leves de compreensão em tarefas de figura-fundo e atenção seletiva para sons verbais em escuta de mensagem competitiva. MÉTODOS: foram incluídos neste estudo pacientes afásicos com distúrbio de compreensão leve, identificados através da aplicação do teste M1-Alpha. Além disso, deveriam apresentar audiometria tonal nas freqüências de 500Hz, 1KHZ, 2KHZ, compatível com a realização de testes auditivos centrais, medidas de imitância acústica normais e reflexos contralateral presentes bilateralmente. Foi utilizado o teste de identificação de sentenças PSI (Pediatric Speech Inteligibility - versão em português. Inicialmente, todos os pacientes identificaram as frases que compõem o PSI à viva voz. Em seguida, foram submetidos ao Teste de Escuta Monótica e Dicótica. RESULTADOS: os pacientes apresentaram dificuldades de compreensão estatisticamente significantes na situação de mensagem competitiva ipsilateral, nas situações 0dB e -10dB, além de dificuldades de compreensão também na situação de mensagem competitiva contralateral MCC (- 40 dB. CONCLUSÕES: os pacientes afásicos apresentaram dificuldade na compreensão de estímulos verbais em tarefas de figura-fundo e atenção seletiva, perdendo parte da informação nestas condições. Os achados dessa pesquisa puderam contribuir de forma a elucidar em como a lesão cerebral e, conseqüentemente, o prejuízo de habilidades perceptuais auditivas pode interferir na compreensão de pacientes afásicos no dia-a-dia, em que várias mensagens concorrem de forma competitiva.PURPOSE: to analyze the performance of aphasic patients with mild comprehension disorders in tasks of back-image and selective attention to verbal sounds in listening tasks with competitive message.

    Adaptive front lighting system (i.e., AFS) is the development trend of lighting system of motor vehicles. AFS means that headlamp can adjust beam direction to get best illumination according to road condition and its bodywork. The paper discusses the AFS key techniques: establishing calculation formulae of vehicle body state concerned road condition and steering state. Because of sensor technology limitations, it only can deal with inclination and turn of vehicle body state by means of sensor's signals. This paper studies the relationship between inclination and turn of the body and lamp lighting on the base of relative standards, and gives out the calculation formulae for the body and lamp lighting adjustment, also discusses its dynamical properties. The study is basic work for lighting adjustment automatically.

  8. Betydningen af pesticider for forekomsten af vilde bier

    DEFF Research Database (Denmark)

    Bruus, Marianne; Dupont, Yoko Luise; Grant, Ruth;

    har spillet i nedgangen i bestøvere sammenlignet med andre aspekter af landbrugspraksis. I den nuværende regulering af sprøjtemidlerne tages specielle hensyn til honningbierne, fordi de er vigtige for bestøvningen af nogle afgrøder, og for at sikre honningproduktionen. De vilde bier er dog også...... vigtige for bestøvningen af fx kløver og mange vilde planter. Da humlebier og andre vilde bier har en anden adfærd og placerer deres reder andre steder end honningbierne, er det ikke givet, at de er beskyttet mod pesticideksponering, selv om honningbierne er. I pilotprojektet ”Betydningen af pesticider...... for forekomsten af vilde bier og honningbier” har Aarhus Universitet på to landbrugsbedrifter gennemført en indledende undersøgelse af, om humlebier udsættes for pesticider i danske landbrugsområder. Humlebistader blev sat ud i to værkstedsområder (ved Fensten og Rodstenseje syd for Odder), hvor driftsformen...

  20. Totally thorascopic surgical ablation of persistent AF and long-standing persistent atrial fibrillation using the "Dallas" lesion set.

    Edgerton, James R; Jackman, Warren M; Mahoney, Cecile; Mack, Michael J

    2009-12-01

    Minimally invasive surgery consisting of bipolar radiofrequency pulmonary vein (PV) isolation and limited ganglionated plexus ablation is effective in eliminating atrial fibrillation (AF) in patients with paroxysmal AF but is less effective in those with persistent AF or long-standing persistent AF. The purpose of this study was examine the results of minimally invasive surgery incorporating an additional set of radiofrequency ablation lines replicating a left-sided Cox maze III procedure. Thirty patients with persistent AF (n = 10) or long-standing persistent AF (n = 20) underwent minimally invasive surgery with an extended lesion set and PV isolation for a minimum follow-up of 6 months. Linear lesions were created at the roof line, at the anterior line, and between the roof line and the left atrial appendage. All patients underwent limited ganglionated plexus ablation and left atrial appendage excision as well as PV isolation verification. Block across the roof and anterior lines was confirmed in 29 (96.6%) of the 30 patients. Follow-up included 2-week event monitoring with auto-trigger in 21 patients, pacemaker interrogation in 8, and ECG in 1 who was in AF and refused longer-term monitoring. No operative mortality or major morbidity occurred. At 6 months, 24 (80%) of the 30 patients were free of AF: 15 (75%) with long-standing persistent AF and 9 (90%) with persistent AF. Among the six failures, burden of AF was low: one had 1 episode >15 seconds, two had 4 episodes, one had 6 episodes, one had >50 episodes, and one had AF on ECG and refused further monitoring. Early results of minimally invasive surgery with a new extended linear lesion set suggest increased efficacy over PV isolation and limited ganglionated plexus ablation in patients with persistent AF or long-standing persistent AF.

    Første gang sammenhængen mellem caries (huller i tænderne) og fluoridindholdet i drikkevand blev diskuteret i vandværkskredse i Danmark var ved årsmødet i 1958. Her blev det oplyst, at fluorid i drikkevand beskytter mod caries, men man konstaterede også, at der nok ikke var stemning for fluorid......-tilsætning til drikkevandet (fluoridering). Siden da er emnet ikke taget op. Formålet med dette indlæg er at besvare spørgsmålene: 1. Er der behov for fluoridering af drikkevandet i Danmark? 2. Er der alternativer? Hvordan påvirker blødgøring af vand og andre vandbehandlingsmetoder dental caries hos børn og unge......? Som baggrund herfor vil vi redegøre for resultaterne af et netop afsluttet studium af sammenhængen mellem caries og drikkevandets sammensætning, specielt m.h.t. luoridindholdet og vandets calciumindhold (hårdhed). Undersøgelsen bekræfter, at fluorid i drikkevand i væsentlig grad beskytter mod caries...

    Objectives: To assess messenger RNA (mRNA) expression of POU2AF1 and Spi-B and their potential regulatory microRNAs (miRNAs) in natalizumab-treated patients with multiple sclerosis and in therapy-associated progressive multifocal leukoencephalopathy (PML). Methods: Expression of POU2AF1/Spi-B was analyzed by using real-time reverse transcription PCR assays on isolated B/CD8+ T lymphocytes and peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from cohorts of untreated and natalizumab-treated patients with and without PML. Longitudinal expression analysis was performed on CD4+, CD8+ T and B cells from 14 patients who interrupted natalizumab therapy for 8 weeks. The miRNA profiling was conducted in PBMCs from 5 untreated and 5 natalizumab-treated patients using low-density arrays followed by validation with single miRNAs assays in untreated and natalizumab-treated patients. Results: POU2AF1 and Spi-B mRNAs were upregulated in B and CD8+ T cells from natalizumab-treated patients, which was validated in PBMCs from different cohorts of natalizumab-treated patients with and without PML, with a noteworthy higher expression of Spi-B in patients with PML. In contrast, downregulation of POU2AF1/Spi-B expression was measured in B and CD8+ T cells after natalizumab discontinuation. Seventeen differentially expressed miRNAs including miR-10b, a regulator of POU2AF1 mRNA, were identified in long-term natalizumab-treated patients compared with untreated ones. Conclusions: Upregulation of POU2AF1 and Spi-B, known transactivators of the JC virus, the causative agent for PML, and its association with occurrence of PML in natalizumab-treated patients, corroborates POU2AF1/Spi-B as potential biomarkers for PML risk, which merits further evaluation.

    Full Text Available Artiklen omhandler løsninger til distribution af video og de faktorer, der kan være udslagsgivende, når man som underviser eller universitet skal vælge, hvilken man vil gøre brug af. De kommercielle løsninger såsom YouTube m.fl. er kendt af de fleste. Hvad færre måske ved er, at der eksisterer alternativer. På europæisk plan har en række institutioner og forskningsnet, herunder det danske, således valgt at lave deres egne løsninger. Der er afgørende forskelle i disse hhv. kommercielle og ikke-kommercielle videodistributionstjenesters tilgange til problemstillinger vedrørende adgangsbegrænsning, ophavsret, metadatering og bevaring samt kvalitetssikring af indhold - forskelle, der for en stor del udspringer af deres respektive opdrag og muligheder for brugerautentificering. Kun de færreste af alternativerne kan bruges af danske studerende og universitetsansatte. Som der argumenteres for i artiklen, er disse problemstillinger imidlertid vigtig baggrundsinformation, når der skal tages stilling til, hvordan man bedst distribuerer videoressourcer. I artiklen beskrives overordnede fællestræk ved hhv. de kommercielle og de ikke-kommercielle distributionsløsninger, og de helt grundliggende forskelle mellem dem diskuteres.

    Manuel rengøring af svinestalde er både meget sundhedsskadeligt og samtidig meget uinspirerende. Arbejdsmiljøet forværres løbende under arbejdet da der under rengøringen (med en højtryksrenser) hvirvles snavs, mikroorganismer og vand op, som personalet derefter indånder. DTU er derfor i samarbejde...... med Forskningscenter Bygholm ved at udvikle et sensorsystem til detektering af renhedsgraden med mere, således at dette beskidte staldvaskarbejde kan automatiseres med en vaskerobot. Med et fleksibelt sensorsystem bliver vaskerobotten en intelligent servicerobotløsning til rengøring af svinestalde og...... forbedre de nuværende arbejdsbetingelser for staldpersonalet.

    trematode-inficerede strandsnegle vil øge deres konsumptionsrate under varmere forhold for at imødekomme de ekstra energiomkostninger, der er forbundet med den øgede produktion af cercarier. Vores hypotese var derfor, at kombinationen af global opvarmning og parasitisme kan neutralisere den nuværende...... negative effekt, trematode-infektioner har på strandsneglens konsumption af grønne makroalger. For at teste denne hypotese undersøgte vi den kombinerede effekt af temperatur og infektion på strandsneglenes konsumption af makroalgen Ulva lactuca i et mikrokosmos eksperiment. Eksperimentet viste en markant...... synergieffekt af parasitisme og temperatur på konsumptionsraten hos store strandsnegle (³ 1,1 g våd vægt). Mens inficerede snegle havde lavere konsumptionsrate end uinficerede individer ved 18 ºC, var der ingen forskel ved 21 ºC. Det tyder derfor på, at synergien mellem parasitisme og en realistisk...
