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

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Florentin Späth; Umeå universitet.; [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

    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
