  • Validity of the Polar M430 Activity Monitor in Free-Living Conditions: Validation Study 

    Henriksen, André; Grimsgaard, Sameline; Horsch, Alexander; Hartvigsen, Gunnar; Hopstock, Laila Arnesdatter (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-08-16)
    <i>Background</i>: Accelerometers, often in conjunction with heart rate sensors, are extensively used to track physical activity (PA) in research. Research-grade instruments are often expensive and have limited battery capacity, limited storage, and high participant burden. Consumer-based activity trackers are equipped with similar technology and designed for long-term wear, and can therefore ...

    <i>Background</i>: Managing a chronic condition takes work, and it is considered important that patients carry out this work. However, knowledge is lacking on what elements enhance self-management work. Persons with food hypersensitivity (FH) seem to do self-management work despite the relatively little support they receive. Our aim is to explore what makes women with FH carry out the work of ...

    Norbye, Anja M. Davis; Midgard, Rune; Thrane, Gyrd (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-07-09)
    <p><i>Objective - </i>More than 80% of people with multiple sclerosis (MS) are affected by spasticity. Spasticity is known to reduce quality of life and contribute to additional symptoms, such as pain and reduced mobility, but the association between spasticity, balance, and mobility has not yet been established. Our aim was to examine whether a relationship exists between spasticity in the lower ...

(Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-22)
    <b>Background</b><br> Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B (RANK)-signaling is involved in tumor growth and spread in experimental models. Binding of RANK ligand (RANKL) to RANK activates signaling, which is inhibited by osteoprotegerin (OPG). We have previously shown that circulating soluble RANKL (sRANKL) and OPG are associated with breast cancer risk. Here we extend these findings to ...

  • Chertbruddet i Melsvik. Undersøkelse av chertbrudd, utvinningsteknologi og bosetningsspor fra tidlig eldre steinalder i Melsvik, Alta k., Finnmark f. 

    Niemi, Anja Roth; Cerbing, Mikael; Nergaard, Ragnhild Holten; Oppvang, Janne; Storemyr, Per (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2019)
    I 2012-2013 ble et chertbrudd fra steinalderen undersøkt utenfor Alta i Finnmark. Undersøkelsen omfattet 1000 m2 av steinbruddet, og 3500 m2 av bosetingsområdene som lå like ved. I tillegg til utgravning ble det gjort eksperimenter med utvinning av chert i bruddet. Resultatene viser at bruddet ble brukt allerede 8400 f.Kr., og at fyrsetting var den viktigste metoden for å bryte chert fra berget. ...

    <p><i>Background - </i>Helping consumers make healthier food choices is a key issue for the prevention of cancer and other diseases. In many countries, political authorities are considering the implementation of a simplified labelling system to reflect the nutritional quality of food products. The Nutri-Score, a five-colour nutrition label, is derived from the Nutrient Profiling System of the British ...

(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-09-07)
    Insulin‐like growth factor‐I (IGF‐I) regulates cell proliferation and apoptosis, and is thought to play a role in tumour development. Previous prospective studies have shown that higher circulating concentrations of IGF‐I are associated with a higher risk of cancers at specific sites, including breast and prostate. No prospective study has examined the association between circulating IGF‐I concentrations ...

    <i>Background</i>: BMI is known to be strongly associated with all-cause mortality, but few studies have been large enough to reliably examine associations between BMI and a comprehensive range of cause-specific mortality outcomes.<p> <p><i>Methods</i>: In this population-based cohort study, we used UK primary care data from the Clinical Practice Research Datalink (CPRD) linked to national ...
  • No overdiagnosis in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program estimated by combining record linkage and questionnaire information in the Norwegian Women and Cancer study 

    Lund, Eiliv; Nakamura, Aurelie; Thalabard, Jean-Christophe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-12-12)
    <i>Background</i>: The Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program (NBCSP) was implemented across the country in 2005 and has been criticised for potential ‘overdiagnosis’, i.e. a breast cancer diagnosis that otherwise would not have been detected or treated in a woman’s lifetime. We aimed to estimate overdiagnosis in the NBCSP based on the Norwegian Women and Cancer (NOWAC) study using both ...
