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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Florentin Späth; Beatrice S. Melin; Carl Wibom; Ann Sofie Johansson; Ingvar Bergdahl; Ola Landgren; [2019]
    Keywords : 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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Markus Stenemo; Johan Ärnlöv; Rikard Landberg; [2019]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; 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 : BackgroundCoagulase-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

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Ehrenborg; Uppsala universitet.; [2007]
    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. Giant cell arteritis. Epidemiological, morphological and molecular genetic studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Vigdís Pétursdóttir; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2000]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Giant cell arteritis; temporal artery; aorta; epidemiology; atrophy; calcification; estrogen receptor a; morphometry; immunocytochemistry; Western blot; molecular genetics;

    Abstract : Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of unknown etiology, affecting large and medium-sized arteries, predominantly in postmenopausal women. Its pathogenesis is probably multifactorial. Several studies suggest that GCA is an antigen-driven disease. READ MORE
