    <i>Introduction</i>: High-dose therapy with autologous stem cell transplantation (HD-ASCT) is associated with an increased risk of late effects. Our aim was to assess lifestyle behavior and factors associated with unhealthy lifestyle among HD-ASCT-treated lymphoma survivors (HD-ASCT-LS).<p><p> <i>Materials and methods</i>: We conducted a national cross-sectional study of HD-ASCT-LS treated during ...
  • Fibrinogen gamma gene rs2066865 and risk of cancer-related venous thromboembolism 

    Paulsen, Benedikte; Skille, Hanne; Smith, Erin N.; Hveem, Kristian; Gabrielsen, Maiken Elvestad; Brækkan, Sigrid Kufaas; Rosendaal, Frits Richard; Frazer, Kelly A.; Gran, Olga Vikhammer; Hansen, John-Bjarne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-10-03)
    Venous thromboembolism is a frequent complication in patients with cancer. Homozygous carriers of the fibrinogen gamma gene (FGG) rs2066865 have a moderately increased risk of venous thromboembolism, but the effect of the FGG variant in cancer is unknown. We aimed to investigate the effect of the FGG variant and active cancer on the risk of venous thromboembolism. Cases with incident venous ...
  • Revisiting the obesity paradox in heart failure: Per cent body fat as predictor of biomarkers and outcome 

    Aimo, Alberto; Januzzi, James L.; Vergaro, Giuseppe; Clerico, Aldo; Latini, Roberto; Meessen, Jennifer; Anand, Inder S.; Cohn, Jay N.; Gravning, Jørgen A.; Ueland, Thor; Nymo, Ståle Haugset; Brunner-La Rocca, Hans-Peter; Bayes-Genis, Antoni; Lupón, Josep; de Boer, Rudolf A.; Yoshihisa, Akiomi; Takeishi, Yasuchika; Egstrup, Michael; Gustafsson, Ida; Gaggin, Hanna K.; Eggers, Kai M.; Huber, Kurt; Tentzeris, Ioannis; Ripoli, Andrea; Passino, Claudio; Emdin, Michele (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-06-01)
    <i>Aims</i> - Obesity defined by body mass index (BMI) is characterized by better prognosis and lower plasma N-terminal pro-B-type natriuretic peptide (NT-proBNP) in heart failure. We assessed whether another anthropometric measure, per cent body fat (PBF), reveals different associations with outcome and heart failure biomarkers (NT-proBNP, high-sensitivity troponin T (hs-TnT), soluble suppression ...
  • Comparison of cytokine changes in three different lipoprotein apheresis systems in an ex vivo whole blood model 

    Hardersen, Randolf Inge; Enebakk, Terje; Christiansen, Dorte; Ludviksen, Judith K; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Lappegård, Knut Tore; Hovland, Anders (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-29)
    <i>Introduction</i> - Even if proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 9 inhibitors have replaced lipoprotein apheresis in many patients, lipoprotein apheresis still is an important option in homozygous familial hypercholesterolemia, progressive atherosclerosis or when removal of lipoprotein(a) is indicated. Additional possible favorable effects beyond lipid lowering could include changes in ...
  • Self-presentation via electronic word of mouth - a reflective or impulsive activity? 

    Wien, Anders Hauge (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-12)
    <i>Purpose</i> - Previous research suggests that self-presentation causes people to have a reflective tendency to produce electronic word-of-mouth (eWOM). Drawing on the theory of the reflective-impulsive model (RIM), this paper aims to examine whether self-presentation also could motivate an impulsive tendency to produce eWOM. Self-monitoring is suggested as a possible moderator in the relationship ...
