    Guidelines for Managing B2B Standards Implementation2011In: E-strategies for Resource Management Systems: Planning and Implementation / [ed] Eshaa M. Alkhalifa, IGI Global, 2011, p. 86-105Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter presents a model of a Business-to-Business implementation that is developed based upon a literature review and an empirical study. The model is also accompanied by a set of implementation guidelines derived from the study. These results may guide organizations that plan to standardize B2B processes. They may also help organization improve the efficiency of their performance as well as guide future researchers towards new possibilities.

    Merging Modelling Techniques: A Case Study and its Implications1999Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
    Abstract [en]

    There are a countless number of methods in the field of Information Systems Development (ISD) today, where only a few have received much attention by practitioners. These ISD methods are described and developed using knowledge in the field of Method Engineering (ME). Most methods concern either what a system is to contain or how the system is to be realised, but as of now, there is no best method for all situations. Bridging the gap between the fuzzier "what"-methods and the more formal "how"-methods is difficult, if not impossible. Methods therefore need to be integrated to cover as much of the systems life cycle as possible. An integration of two methods, one from each side of the gap, can be performed in a number of different ways, each way having its own obstacles that need to be overcome.

    The case study we have performed concerns a method integration of the fuzzier Business Process Model (BPM) in the EKD method with the more formal description technique SDL (Specification and Description Language). One meta model per technique was created, which were then used to compare BPM and SDL. The integration process consisted of translating EKD business process diagrams into SDL correspondences, while carefully documenting and analysing encountered problems. The encountered problems mainly arose because of either transaction-independence differences or method focus deviations. The case study resulted in, for example, a number of implications for both EKD and SDL, as well as for ME, and include suggestions for future work.

    Seeking business value using web services2006In: Knowledge in Organizations I: Foundations and methodologies, development and design, applications and integration / [ed] Sven Carlsson, Björn Cronquist, Harald Kjellin, Benkt Wangler, Skövde: Högskolan i Skövde , 2006, no 1, p. 189-200Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Flows of information, services and goods are not confined to an organisation’s internal structure, but today face a more distributed environment both in terms of time and space. Mergers and acquisitions imply that one and the same organisation no longer resides in one geographical location, and neither does it have a uniform IS/IT architecture. Web Services are one rather recent approach to obtaining increased interoperability between existing systems. This paper is focused on what business values organizations can achieve using Web Services, Results show ten such values, but also points to challenges that need to be addressed.

    Standardising the business vocabulary of standards2002In: Proceedings of the ACM Symposium on Applied Computing, New York: Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), 2002, p. 1048-1052Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the area of standardisation for inter-organisational business processes, terminology confusion is slowly emerging. The meaning of the concept "standard" is not as clear as many people and organisations seem to assume. This paper looks into the various definitions of a standard and four similarly used concepts: specific, recommendation, framework and pattern. When examining the various definitions, four different definitions types were identified: the item itself; the process of creating the item; the document describing how to create the item; and the process of creating this particular document. Furthermore, the standardisation efforts described in this paper for the most cases do not define their business vocabulary, meaning that there is some risk for terminology confusion. The conclusion is that there is a need to perform thorough concepts definitions and conceptual modelling in this area.

    The role of standardisation in inter-organisational business processes2001In: Proceedings from the 2nd IEEE Conference on Standardization and Innovation in Information Technology, New York: IEEE conference proceedings, 2001, p. 263-271Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In business co-operation of today, standards are often used to facilitate interactions between companies. In this paper, we discuss and compare seven suggested standardisation efforts in order to answer the question of what role standardisation will play in such co-operations. The comparison shows that standardisation indeed is becoming an important part of business processes, particularly in those that flow across organisational boundaries. Commercial as well as non-profit organisations are furthermore joining hands in developing standardisation efforts to smoothen, speed up and automate the way in which business is done in various trading communities.

    Trust Types: An Overview2009In: Proceedings of the 8th Annual Security Conference Discourses in Security, Assurance & Privacy, Information Institute , 2009, p. 12:1-12:14Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    "Trust" - with its many alternative meanings - has received much attention in later years. In combination with security issues, trust has been identified as a critical factor for many interorganisational collaboration efforts. Many efforts have also been made to classify trust into various categories or types. However, there are so many of these classifications available, which have resulted in a lack of overview in the area. This paper addresses the gap in research and presents an overview of trust types with their internal relations. A total of 29 different trust types were identified and included in the analysis. The results include a model of the types and their relations, as well as a meta-classification.

    Magisteruppsats för utländska studenter: krav på förändrad pedagogik i examensarbeten på magisternivå?2005In: Proceedings 2005: utvecklingskonferensen 16-18 november i Karlstad / [ed] Ingrid Järnefelt, Lund: Lunds universitet , 2005, p. 48-50Conference paper (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    Många magisterprogram i Sverige har idag en stor del utländska studenter, speciellt studenter från Asien. Enligt vår erfarenhet så är det mycket få asiatiska studenter som tidigare har bedrivit ett forskningsliknande eller vetenskapligt arbete. Detta innebär att de inte heller har skrivit någon vetenskaplig text som, exempelvis, innehåller hänvisningar till referenser. Texterna som studenterna har skrivit under sin tidigare studieperiod är oftast i form av dokumentation av egenutvecklad programvara. Att en magisteruppsats ska innehålla argumentation och vetenskaplig förankring av påstående är ofta helt nytt för de utländska magisterstudenterna. Skillnaden orsakar pedagogiska problem för handledare och examinatorer, samt ger upphov till ett antal frågor av annan karaktär som behöver lösas.

    Managing healthcare information: analyzing trust2016In: International Journal of Health Care Quality Assurance, ISSN 0952-6862, E-ISSN 1758-6542, Vol. 29, no 7, p. 786-800Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose– The purpose of this paper is to analyze two case studies with a trust matrix tool, to identify trust issues related to electronic health records. Design/methodology/approach– A qualitative research approach is applied using two case studies. The data analysis of these studies generated a problem list, which was mapped to a trust matrix. Findings– Results demonstrate flaws in current practices and point to achieving balance between organizational, person and technology trust perspectives. The analysis revealed three challenge areas, to: achieve higher trust in patient-focussed healthcare; improve communication between patients and healthcare professionals; and establish clear terminology. By taking trust into account, a more holistic perspective on healthcare can be achieved, where trust can be obtained and optimized. Research limitations/implications– A trust matrix is tested and shown to identify trust problems on different levels and relating to trusting beliefs. Future research should elaborate and more fully address issues within three identified challenge areas. Practical implications– The trust matrix’s usefulness as a tool for organizations to analyze trust problems and issues is demonstrated. Originality/value– Healthcare trust issues are captured to a greater extent and from previously unchartered perspectives.

    Using Virtual Communities to Involve Users in E-Service Development: A Case Study2011In: Business organisations and the collaborative web: Practices, Strategies and Patterns / [ed] Kamna Malik & Praveen K. Choudhary, IGI Global, 2011, p. 61-75Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Thriving in the Internet era requires both Internet presence and careful development of the e-services provided using this technology. However, one major poblem is how to involve the end users of the e-service(s), something which is necessary if the e-services are to be useful and sustainable. This chapter presents a case study on the e-service development process using a major player in the travel industry as the case. The main focus is on how new technological advancements and phenomena, primarily virtual communities, can be used as a main source of end user requirements. Virtual communties are both of startegic and practical relevance and even cause a need to redefine the term "user participation." E-servies constitute a major trend for private as well as public organizations and should address Internet technology advancements when being developed.

    The Conceptual Confusion Around “e-service”: Practitioners' Conceptions2015In: Open and Big Data Management and Innovation / [ed] Marijn Janssen, Matti Mäntymäki, Jan Hidders, Bram Klievink, Winfried Lamersdorf, Bastiaan van Loenen, Anneke Zuiderwijk, Cham, Switzerland: Springer, 2015, p. 366-371Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The e-service concept has been a central concern in many researchand practitioner areas in recent years. There are expectations of citizens, customers,commercial companies and public organizations of what e-services are,their functionality and benefits. However, there is conceptual confusion thatmay hamper collaboration and research viability. This paper explores the conceptualvagueness and presents an empirical investigation of how the e-serviceconcept is treated in practice, along with its kindred concept “IT service”. Resultsshow that public and commercial organizations approach e-services differently,that translation problems can cause lack of comparability in research results,and that additional concepts may be introduced instead of e-service.

    The use of Web Services in e-business: Proof of Concept2007In: Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference on e-Commerce / [ed] Sandeep Krishnamurthy and Pedro Isaías, IADIS , 2007, p. 329-332Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In the work surrounding Service-Oriented Architectures, the concept of Web Services (WS) has received a lot of attention. In e-business, WS hold great promises of positive effects. However, there is still a lack of empirical evidence showing how WS creation works, what problems may arise during this process, and what effects the WS may have on e-business organisations. This paper presents a proof of concept (PoC) focusing on activities, results and encountered problems in the process of creating a WS in an e-business setting. The purpose was to meet the need for empirical descriptions for WS in B2B, to enable the e-business collaboration to function and succeed.

    Interconnecting e-business model components2008In: Information systems engineering: from data analysis to process networks / [ed] Paul Johannesson, Eva Söderström, IGI Global, 2008, p. 308-330Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter is about electronic business (e-business) models that have emerged and altered the traditional ways in which to do business. An e-business model is a specialisation of a business model, and is an organisational plan for how to work with the products or services intended to bring profit and revenue, and using ICT and the Internet in doing so. E-business models consist of components. Components constitute a business concept, i.e. an idea that an organisation wants to bring into reality. Our research has focused on the interconnections between e-business model components. The analysis of the ebusiness model components and their interconnections results in a framework in the form of a model displaying the connections between the clustered components. The purpose of the chapter is to explain an overview of e-business model components and show how value is created and added at each component level.

    Trust in IT Outsourcing Relationships: A Framework2009In: Proceedings of the 8th Annual Security Conference Disourses in Security, Assurance & Privacy, Information Institute , 2009, p. 32:1-32:9Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    IT outsourcing is a viable option for organizations to maintain competitiveness and get the ability to focus on core competences. However, there are risks involved, such as handing over sensitive information to another organization, lack of knowledge of the security experiences of the other part, differences in culture and way of working, etc. Trust is therefore becoming a more and more important issue in IT outsourcing relationships. This paper aims to identify and describe the process of achieving trust in IT outsourcing relationships. A framework was created based on an extensive literature survey. Three concept areas are included: contract, culture, and security. Each area is described, and critical success factors (CSF) were developed to support practical use.

    Marrying e-business with IT strategy: A long-lasting relationship?2007In: Proceedings of the IADIS International Conference e-Commerce 2007 / [ed] Sandeep Krishnamurthy, Pedro Isaias, IADIS Press, 2007, p. 147-154Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    IT/IS are very essential from a strategic point of view, as is electronic business (e-business). Strategic e-business can mean competitive advantage, more efficient and well-structured links between partners, and a more coherent set of supporting information and communication technologies (ICT). Current research literature has no common approach on IT from a strategic point of view. There is no uniform theory or common focus, but rather a dispersed collection of issues and perspectives under consideration. This aim of this paper is to identify in what way e-business and strategic management relate and what areas that are still unexplored. The results can be used to spur further research, as well as to enable organizations to prepare for a long-term planning.

    Combining work process models to identify training needs in the prehospital care process2014In: Perspectives in Business Informatics Research: 13th International Conference, BIR 2014, Lund, Sweden, September 22-24, 2014. Proceedings / [ed] Björn Johansson, Bo Andersson & Nicklas Holmberg, Springer, 2014, p. 375-389Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The prehospital process is complex and covers a wide range of locations, healthcare personnel, technologies and competences. Enabling high quality holistic training is hence a challenge. Process models are efficient tools for representing reality, but no single modeling approach can cover the complexity of prehospital care. In our research, we have investigated the possibility to combine various process modeling techniques in order to identify training components and as many perspectives of the prehospital process as possible. Results show that combining different approaches and adapting them based on the need at hand is a successful strategy for enabling an of the prehospital care process from multiple perspectives, including identification of holistic, realistic and engaging training components.  Future work can utilize our results to build training scenarios that can be implemented in training using for example simulation.

    Developing an IT strategy: The case of SMEs2008In: Proceedings of the ICT, Society and Human Beings 2008 at AIDIS Multi conference on Computer Science and Information Systems, 2008, p. 163-172Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

    IT strategies can serve as key tools that move an organization towards its business vision, and towards growth and prosperity. Today, most large organizations have an IT strategy, even if these not always are used the way intended – if being used at all. Instead, strategies become “shelf warmers”, collecting dust in a manager’s office. The situation is even worse for smaller organizations, since they rarely have the competences needed to create the document, or the structure in place presupposed by research to implement and use the strategy. This paper reports on initial results from a small project on simplified management of IT strategies to enable true usage and benefits. We analyze the IT strategy content described in literature against empirical data. The result is a set of recommendations for firstly, industry in its strategy creation process; and secondly, research in giving indications of research gaps that need further elaboration.

    IT Strategy and Strategic Concepts: An Overview2009In: Proceedings of the 8th ISOneWorld 2009 Conference, Information Institute , 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Even though the word "strategy" is used extensively in literature, very few works exist that explore what strategies as documents are and how they are used. Many organizations know they should have an IT strategy, and many have created one - but do not use it in the optimal sense. It can be a tool for driving an organization towards its goals, and that they are a way for organizations to ensure that the technology they invest in is relevant for their purposes. Merging the process and document perspectives constitutes a great research challenge for the future. This paper explores how the concept "strategy" is treated in scientific literature, and creates an overview model of how these concepts are used in scientific literature.

    Towards a framework for strategy management2009In: Proceedings of the 8th ISOneWorld 2009 Conference, Information Institute , 2009Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    IT architectures are of central importance to organizations today, and it is therefore essential to think and plan strategically for their composition, acquisition, maintenance, and evolution. IT strategies thereby become an important tool for organizational growth. However, even if strategies exist to some extent, primarily in large organizations, they are rarely used, disseminated or updated in a systematic way. This paper provides a strategy framework comprised of: strategy types, an extended strategic management process, and recommendations for how to manage various strategies. The overview can be used as a roadmap for organizations to facilitate their overall strategic planning.

    Standardisation as a Means to Improve Information Security in Process-Oriented Distributed Healthcare2008In: Proceedings of the 13th EURAS Workshop on Standardisation (EURAS2008) / [ed] Jakobs, Kai & Söderström, Eva, Aachen: Mainz , 2008, p. 233-244Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

     

     

    Regardless of who we are, where we are, and when we get sick, we expect the healthcare sectors to take care of us. And we expect it to treat us with respect. Not the least, this concerns treating our personal information with care. However, the reality is that most healthcare institutions work separately, and that the flow of patient information therefore is less than optimal. This paper aims to investigate how current standards map against the concept of information security, and how process-orientation can be used in conjunction with standards to create secure information flows in healthcare. It does so by describing information security and process-orientation, and investigates how standards for information security apply in a process-oriented, distributed healthcare sector. The result shows that a dual focus is needed,on document and process standardisation, and that healthcare is facing great challenges in order to make this work.

    Standards for information security and processes in healthcare2009In: Journal of Systems and Information Technology, ISSN 1328-7265, E-ISSN 1758-8847, Vol. 11, no 3, p. 295-308Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Purpose - Regardless of who or where we are and when we get sick, we expect healthcare to make us well and to handle us and our information with care and respect. Today, most healthcare institutions work separately, making the flow of patient information sub-optimal and the use of common standards practically unheard of. The purpose of this paper is to emphasise the use of standards to improve information security in process-oriented distributed healthcare. Design/methodology/approach - The paper introduces a real-life case which is analysed to highlight how and where standards can and should be used in order to improve information security in process-oriented distributed healthcare. Findings - In total, 11 flaws or problems in information security and process-orientation are identified. From these, six changes are suggested which address how information is handled, and how organizational routines should be standardized. Research limitations/implications - The case setting is Swedish healthcare, but problems can be shared across international borders. The purpose is to highlight the issues at hand. Practical implications - If suggested changes are implemented, healthcare processes will be more streamlined and focused on patients. Routines will be standardized and uncertainties thus removed in terms of how to act in certain situations. Originality/value - Healthcare and academia has yet to address both document and process issues concerning standardization in distributed healthcare. There are also few actual cases from a patient perspective. This paper provides lessons learned from a real-life case, where results may impact how standardization is addressed in healthcare organizations.

    Trusting Digitized Patient-Related Information: The Need for a New Approach2011In: Proceedings of the 5th International Symposium on Human Aspects of Information Security and Assurance (HAISA 2011) / [ed] Steven Furnell, Nathan Clarke, Plymouth Center for Security, Comunications & Network Research, University of Plymouth , 2011, p. 119-129Conference paper (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Trust the receiving increasing attention nowadays, particularly since new technology enables communication and collaboration like it has never been seen before. However, trust is a fuzzy concept that needs further examination and attention from multiple levels. For examples, security is very important from a user's point of view in trusting that technology will function in accordance with the user's intended and requested function. This paper reviews the concept of patient safety, which thus far has been discussed and defined from a narrow technical perspective. We demonstrate that it is much more complex, and that it is not primarily the technical issues that are problematic, but rather the cultural, process-related and personnel issues. Our results point to a need for a new approach, which takes the patient's view of healthcare and the patient-related digital information as its focus. The discussion is made from a Swedish perspective, but the issues are international. The needs for information and knowledge in healthcare are obvious. Without clear definitions of concepts and roles, a good information flow or process cannot be designed. Our discussion shows that trusted digital patient information gives an opportunity for a patient-focused healthcare. Multidimensional trust must be addressed on all levels; organization, person and technology. More empirical research into trust in digital patient-related information is necessary, to develop a model for patient safety from a trust perspective that encompasses all levels of trust.

    Development of trapeze system for dinghy sailing2008Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 15 credits / 22,5 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [en]

     

    This is a Bachelor degree project report describing the

    development process of a trapeze system for dinghy

    sailing. The project was performed in cooperation with

    Seldén Mast AB, manufacturer of spars and rigging

    systems for yachts and dinghies.

    The trapeze system is used in some dinghy sailing

    classes. It is used to move the weight of the crew outside

    of the boat to compensate the force created by the wind

    in the sails. The system consists of a number of

    components. Focus of the project was set on the position

    adjustment device and the attachment to the harness.

    The product development process included a pre study,

    a Product Design Specification, a function analysis,

    concept development, embodiment, and detail design.

    The project resulted in three products: two variants of

    trapeze cleats (adjustment devices) and a trapeze ring (to

    enable attachment to the harness).

    DISTRIKTSSKÖTERSKANS UPPLEVELSE AV FYSISK AKTIVITET PÅ RECEPT SOM ETT REDSKAP I HÄLSOARBETET: En intervjustudie2014Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year)), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
    Abstract [sv]

    Distriktssköterskan har en viktig roll i mötet med patienter som lider av hälsoproblem. Förskrivning av fysisk aktivitet (FaR) är en del i hälsosamtalet med patienten. Syftet med studien är att beskriva distriktssköterskans upplevelser av att använda fysisk aktivitet som ett redskap i hälsoarbetet. Datamaterialet består av intervjuer med åtta distriktssköterskor. Intervjuerna bandinspelades och transkriberades ordagrant. Intervjuerna har analyserats enligt kvalitativ metod med en fenomenografisk ansats. Efter genomförd analys kunde fem beskrivningskategorier urskiljas: följsamhet, omvårdnadsåtgärder, motivation, främjande faktorer samt svårigheter. Dessa kunde relateras med tio subkategorier. Resultatet visar ett flertal omständigheter som påverkar hur distriktssköterskorna upplever fysisk aktivitet på recept som ett redskap i hälsoarbetet. Distriktssköterskorna upplever att följsamheten hos patienten har betydelse för deras egen motivation till förskrivning. Den ekonomiska aspekten upplevs ur flera olika synvinklar som har betydelse för arbetet. De upplever att samarbetet mellan olika yrkesprofessioner samt andra instanser är betydelsefullt. Distriktssköterskorna i studien menar att det är få patienter som visar det resultat som förväntas efter förskrivning av FaR. Trots det upplever de att arbetet kring FaR är viktigt och motiverande.

    Effects of fibre type and diffusion distance on mouse skeletal muscle glycogen content in vitro2009In: Journal of Cellular Biochemistry, ISSN 0730-2312, E-ISSN 1097-4644, Vol. 107, no 6, p. 1189-1197Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In vitro incubation of isolated rodent skeletal muscle is a widely used procedure in metabolic research. One concern with this method is the development of an anoxic state during the incubation period that can cause muscle glycogen depletion. Our aim was to investigate whether in vitro incubation conditions influence glycogen concentration in glycolytic extensor digitorum longus (EDL) and oxidative soleus mouse muscle. Quantitative immunohistochemistry was applied to assess glycogen content in incubated skeletal muscle. Glycogen concentration was depleted, independent of insulin-stimulation in the incubated skeletal muscle. The extent of glycogen depletion was correlated with the oxidative fibre distribution and with the induction of hypoxia-induced-factor-1-alpha. Insulin exposure partially prevented glycogen depletion in soleus, but not in EDL muscle, providing evidence that glucose diffusion is not a limiting step to maintain glycogen content. Our results provide evidence to suggest that the anoxic milieu and the intrinsic characteristics of the skeletal muscle fibre type play a major role in inducing glycogen depletion in during in vitro incubations.

    Mathematical Modelling of Insulin Signalling: Effects on Glucose Metabolism in Skeletal Muscle2010Doctoral thesis, comprehensive summary (Other academic)
    Abstract [en]

    The use of models to understand complex phenomena is indispensable to the scientific community. The advantage of a model is that it simplifies the phenomena under study. However, a model should be only as complex as required, no more, no less. Furthermore, a model should avoid known or unknown confounding variables that might obscure the interpretations of observations. Within biology, models can be set up in many different ways, such as mathematical, graphical or verbal descriptions of the system under study. In physiology, the systems under study can be the entire animal or organs or cell cultures from it. To study some aspects of the regulation of glucose and energy homeostasis, skeletal muscles is a preferable model, as it is the main consumer of post-prandial glucose, and thus, important for maintaining whole body glucose and energy homeostasis. Incubation of skeletal muscle specimens in a suitable solution is a model-system that has been used during the last century. The availability of oxygen for energy transformation has been of major concern. Therefore, the experimental system has been validated several times with different methods, both experimentally and mathematically.

    The result from experimental validations indicates that glycogen content is unequally distributed within the incubated muscle specimens, with the core depleted of glycogen. Furthermore, validation done with the mathematical models describing the experimental systems indicates that oxygen diffusion is sufficient if the following assumptions are valid; homogeneous structure and that the critical value of oxygen pressure is above zero throughout the entire muscle. However, if those assumptions are invalid, the observations of some metabolic and/or signalling data might be invalid. In this thesis, those assumption are validated, with the specific aim to derive mathematical models that can be used to further analyse the metabolic data generated.

    Set of ordinary differential equation was used to describe the metabolic data derived from incubation of mouse extensor digitorum longus skeletal muscles preparations, paper 1. The parameters and constants were identified within the mathematical model, which then, was further analysed. The results indicated that the experimental system suffered from anoxia and that glycogen was depleted during the incubation time. An immunohistochemical approach was used to verify the predictions from the mathematical model on glycogen depletion, paper 2. A statistical approach was developed herein that made quantitative studies possible and the results verified the prediction from the mathematical model in paper 1. Furthermore, a correlation between fibre type distribution and glycogen depletion was observed, indicating that the assumption on homogeneous glucose handling might be too hard. The existence of anoxia within the incubated muscle specimens was revealed. A novel hypothesis regarding deficient insulin diffusion into the centre of the incubated muscle preparation as the cause for quasi-depletion of glycogen was tested, paper 3. The hypothesis was falsified; instead increased insulin signalling was observed in the core of the muscle, correlating with fibre types on the single-cell-level.

    In conclusion, the studies presented in this thesis provide evidence that muscle preparations are suffering of anoxia after incubation leading to depletion of glycogen. Furthermore, the assumption on homogeneous glucose handling is falsified. Finally, a mathematical model is provided that can be used to estimate the un-measurable glycogen concentrations and estimate the glucose uptake rate in the superficial fibres.

    Validation of the in vitro incubation of extensor digitorum longus muscle from mice with a mathematical model2010In: Journal of biological systems, ISSN 0218-3390, Vol. 18, no 3, p. 687-707Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In vitro incubation of tissues; in particular, skeletal muscles from rodents, is a widely-used experimental method in diabetes research. This experimental method has previously been validated, both experimentally and theoretically. However, much of the method's experimental data remains unclear, including the high-rate of lactate production and the lack of an observable increase in glycogen content, within a given time. The predominant hypothesis explaining the high-rate of lactate production is that this phenomenon is dependent on a mechanism in glycolysis that works as a safety valve, producing lactate when glucose uptake is super-physiological. Another hypothesis is that existing anoxia forces more ATP to be produced from glycolysis, leading to an increased lactate concentration. The lack of an observable increase in glycogen content is assumed to be dependent on limitations in sensitivity of the measuring method used. We derived a mathematical model to investigate which of these hypotheses is most likely to be correct. Using our model, data analysis indicates that the in vitro incubated muscle specimens, most likely are sensing the presence of existing anoxia, rather than an overflow in glycolysis. The anoxic milieu causes the high lactate production. The model also predicts an increased glycogenolysis. After mathematical analyses, an estimation of the glycogen concentration could be made with a reduced model. In conclusion, central anoxia is likely to cause spatial differences in glycogen concentrations throughout the entire muscle. Thus, data regarding total glycogen levels in the incubated muscle do not accurately represent the entire organ. The presented model allows for an estimation of total glycogen, despite spatial differences present in the muscle specimen.
