  1. 1. Physical Activity and Cardiovascular Disease

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Kasper Andersen; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Physical activity; epidemiology; cohort study; heart failure; cardiovascular disease; arrhythmias; atrial fibrillation; bradyarrhythmias; sudden cardiac death; heart failure; stroke; ischemic heart disease; cardiovascular death; maximal exercise capacity; muscle strength; skeletal muscle morphology; Cardiology; Kardiologi; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : The aim was to investigate associations of fitness and types and levels of physical activity with subsequent risk of cardiovascular disease.Four large-scale longitudinal cohort studies were used. The exposures were different measures related to physical activity and the outcomes were obtained through linkage to the Swedish In-Patient Register. READ MORE

  2. 2. Genetic Variations in Type 2 Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease: A Focus on Gene-Lifestyle Interactions and Mendelian Randomization

    University dissertation from Diabetes and cardiovascular disease - genetic epidemiology

    Author : George Hindy; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; [2015]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Type 2 diabetes; cardiovascular disease; coronary heart disease; metabolic syndrome; genetics; gene-lifestyle interactions; diet; TCF7L2; WNT signaling; chromosome 9p21; Mendelian randomization;

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in English The prevalence of type 2 diabetes (T2D) and cardiovascular disease (CVD) is increasing in epidemic proportions around the globe. This epidemic accounts for huge health and economic burdens as a leading cause for morbidity and mortality. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cardiovascular Risk Genes in Prevention and Treatment Response

    University dissertation from Hypertension and Cardiovascular Disease

    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; blood pressure treatment; hypertension; statins; dyslipidemia; cardiovascular prevention; cardiovascular genetics; stroke; coronary artery disease; chromosome 9p21; pharmacogenetics; pharmacogenomics;

    Abstract : GENERAL AIM: To investigate how common single-nucleotide-polymorphisms (SNPs) that associate with cardiovascular disease (CVD) could be used in prevention and treatment of CVD. SUBJECTS: Subjects from the population-based Malmö-Diet-and-Cancer-(MDC)-Study (n=30447) and hypertensives from the Nordic-Diltiazem-(NORDIL)-Study (n=10881). READ MORE

  4. 4. Interaction between dietary factors and genetic risk for lipoprotein traits and cardiovascular disease

    University dissertation from Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Sambanden mellan kostens sammansättning och risk för hjärt-kärlsjukdom är i många fall oklara. En kost rik på fleromättade fettsyror har ansetts kunna ge skydd mot hjärt-kärlsjukdom, men resultaten från olika studier är motstridiga. READ MORE
