  1. 1. Metabolic factors and bladder cancer risk and mortality. Studies to approach causal associations and interactions with smoking and genetic variants

    Author : Stanley Teleka; Registerbaserad epidemiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bladder cancer; metabolic factors; Association; Interaction; Blood pressure; BMI; statistical analysis; Mendelian Randomization Analysis;

    Abstract : Urothelial bladder cancer (BC) is one of the most common cancers in developed countries. It has one of the highest recurrence rates among solid tumors, resulting in regular treatment and follow-up, making it one of the most expensive cancers to treat, and a significant public health burden.

    Abstract : Background: Middle Eastern immigrants represent a growing population in Sweden today. This group are at higher risk for type 2 diabetes than the native population, but are also shown to exhibit unique properties; despite an abundance in traditional cardiometabolic risk factors such as obesity, dearranged blood lipids and diminished physical acitivity, this group seem to exhibit lower blood pressure levels.

  3. 3. Risk factors for cardiovascular events and incident hospital-treated diabetes in the population

    Author : Payam Khalili; Peter Nilsson; Johan Jendle; Annika Rosengren; Örebro universitet; []

    Abstract : Background: Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death worldwide. Well-established risk factors for CVD include increasing age, male sex, sedentary lifestyle, obesity, smoking, diabetes, hypertension, dyslipidaemia and low socio-economic status. Traditional risk factors do, however, not fully explain cardiovascular risk in general. READ MORE

  4. 4. Long-term metabolic effects of a high birth weight

    Author : Inger W Johnsson; Jan Gustafsson; Fredrik Ahlsson; Maria Lundgren; Ola Nilsson; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : The intrauterine environment influences foetal growth as well as future response to risk factors for disease. This occurs partly through epigenetic mechanisms. Thus, birth weight is a possible risk marker of adult disease. READ MORE

  5. 5. The role of leptin in endothelial dysfunction and cardiovascular disease

    Author : Manuel Cruz Gonzalez Garcia; Stefan Söderberg; Jan Engvall; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; leptin; obesity; endothelial dysfunction; cardiovascular disease; kardiologi; Cardiology;

    Abstract : Objective:  Obesity has become the leading cause of mortality worldwide; however, the fundamental pathophysiology underlying this association remains unclear. The discovery of adipokines, i.e., cytokines produced by adipose cells (adipocytes), revealed that adipose tissue is a highly endocrine organ, thus opening new lines of investigation. READ MORE
