    • Neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin in inflammatory bowel disease 

      Thorsvik, Silje (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2019:108, Doctoral thesis, 2019)
      Nøytrofil gelatinase-assosiert lipocalin i inflammatorisk tarmsykdom Inflammatorisk tarmsykdom (IBD) er kroniske betennelsestilstander i mage-tarmsystemet. De to hovedformene er Crohns sykdom (CD) og ulcerøs kolitt (UC). ...
