    Ussif, Mohammed Al-Amin; Åsberg, Anders; Strøm Halden, Thea Anine; Nordheim, Espen; Hartmann, Anders; Jenssen, Trond Geir (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-01-10)
    <b>Background</b><br> The use of HbA1c ≥6.5% for diagnosis of diabetes has been challenged for post-transplantation diabetes mellitus (PTDM) also known as new onset diabetes after transplantation (NODAT) due to a low sensitivity early after renal transplantation. PTDM diagnosed with an oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) is highly predictable for long-term patient mortality. HbA1c was introduced for ...

    Hop, Haakon; Assmy, Philipp; Wold, Anette; Sundfjord, Arild; Daase, Malin; Duarte, Pedro; Kwasniewski, Slawomir; Gluchowska, Marta; Wiktor, Józef Maria; Tatarek, Agnieszka; Wiktor, Józef Maria Jr.; Kristiansen, Svein; Fransson, Agneta Ingrid; Chierici, Melissa; Vihtakari, Mikko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-09)
    The northern coast of Svalbard contains high-arctic fjords, such as Rijpfjorden (80°N 22°30′E). This area has experienced higher sea and air temperatures and less sea ice in recent years, and models predict increasing temperatures in this region. Part of the West Spitsbergen Current (WSC), which transports relatively warm Atlantic water along the continental slope west of Svalbard, bypasses these ...
