  1. 1. Diet, Emission and Diabetes : A treelet transform pattern analysis on Västerbotten Intervention Program

    University essay from Umeå universitet/Epidemiologi och global hälsa

    Author : Wossenseged Birhane Jemberie; [2018]
    Keywords : Treelet transform; Dietary patterns; Greenhouse gas emissions; Carbon footprint; dietary GHGE patterns; Diabetes; Dysglycemia; Västerbotten Intervention Program;

    Abstract : Objective: Researches which studied the relation of dietary greenhouse gas emissions with health outcomes are few, inconsistent and most of them are modelling studies which have not investigated empiric dietary emission patterns. In this study, we employ a posteriori data dimension reduction method, treelet transform, to identify dietary and diet related emission patterns concurrently. READ MORE

  5. 5. Seroprevalence of CCPP, FMDV, BTV and BVDV among small ruminants in Tanzania : A minor field study with focus on differential diagnoses of peste des petits ruminants virus

    University essay from SLU/Dept. of Clinical Sciences

    Author : Malin Päärni; [2016]
    Keywords : peste des petits ruminants virus; foot and mouth disease virus; bluetongue virus; bovine viral diarrhoea; border disease virus; contagious caprine pleuropneumonia; seroprevalence; Tanzania; sheep; goats;

    Abstract : This degree project has been performed as a Minor Field Study (MFS) in Tanzania, investigating the seroprevalence in goats and sheep of three diseases causing similar signs as peste des petits ruminants virus (PPRV): foot and mouth disease (FMD), bluetongue (BT) and contagious caprine pleuropneumonia (CCPP), as well as bovine viral diarrhoea (BVD) and border disease (BDV) which is believed to affect an outbreak of PPR due to immunosuppression. Sheep and goats play a key role in national food and nutritional security, income security and livelihood resilience in the least economically developed countries across the world and because of the complicated epidemiology and socio-economic impact of these diseases it is of great interest to further evaluate the prevalence of PPRV and its differential diagnosis.
