  1. 1. Molecular epidemiology approach : nested case-control studies in glioma and lymphoid malignancies

    Author : Florentin Späth; Beatrice S. Melin; Carl Wibom; Ann Sofie Johansson; Ingvar Bergdahl; Ola Landgren; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Glioma; B cell lymphoma; multiple myeloma; risk; repeated samples; prospective longitudinal study; nested case-control study; circulating sEGFR and sERBB2; circulating immune markers and growth factors; marker disease association; disease progression; NSHDS; Janus; linear mixed modeling; epidemiologi; Epidemiology; Oncology; onkologi;

    Abstract : BACKGROUND: Nested case-control studies aim to link molecular markers with a certain outcome. Repeated prediagnostic samples may improve the evaluation of marker-disease associations. However, data regarding the benefit of repeated samples in such studies are sparse. READ MORE

  2. 2. Molecular Epidemiology of Cardiovascular Disease

    Author : Markus Stenemo; Johan Ärnlöv; Rikard Landberg; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Biomarkers; ischemic stroke; heart failure; omics; proteomics; metabolomics; epidemiology; risk marker; Epidemiologi; Epidemiology;

    Abstract : Cardiovascular disease is a major cause of morbidity and mortality, with increasing prevalence worldwide.Identification of risk markers may enable improved prevention by targeting high-risk individuals, earlier disease diagnosis and treatment, as well as stratification of disease subtypes with different treatment options, thereby minimizing side effects while increasing success rates.

    Abstract : Background Coagulase-negative staphylococci (CoNS) and in particular Staphylococcus epidermidis have emerged as major pathogens primarily causing nosocomial infections in patients with indwelling medical devices. These infections are often caused by multidrug-resistant strains of S. epidermidis (MDRSE). READ MORE

  4. 4. Bartonella Infections in Sweden: : Clinical Investigations and Molecular Epidemiology

    Author : Christian Ehrenborg; Martin Holmberg; Göran Friman; Eva Hjelm; Gunnar Sandström; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Communicable diseases; Bartonella; clinical studies; molecular epidemiology; Infektionssjukdomar;

    Abstract : Characteristically, in infections that are caused by the zoonotic pathogen Bartonella naturally infected reservoir hosts are asymptomatic, where infected incidental, non-natural, hosts develop symptomatic disease. Cat-scratch disease (CSD) is a well known example. READ MORE

  5. 5. Molecular epidemiology of tuberculosis

    Author : Ramona Petersson; Ramona Groenheit; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : Tuberculosis (TB) is a global epidemic, with one third of the world s population infected, at least 9 million new active cases per year and about 2 million deaths per year. Without adequate chemotherapy treatment TB may be a mortal disease. READ MORE
