A quality assessment of the Georgian Birth Registry
Aim: Assess the quality of the Georgian Birth Registry (GBR) in the 1st year of implementation. Method: The GBR was implemented 1st of January 2016 in 285 maternity facilities in Georgia. The mode of reporting is case-report-forms (CRFs) which are filled out electronically by doctors or midwives and entered directly into the birth registry. Reporting to the GBR became mandatory by law on the 1st of May 2016. A formal application for usage of data was sent to the GBR and approved, the register file was retrieved in February 2017 and a study file was made. Number of births from the National Centre of Disease Control (NCDC) were obtained and compared to the GBR to find coverage. Data were analysed in three four-month periods. The Robson variables were assessed with regards to completeness of case reporting, inconsistent case-reporting, and missing Robson information. Results: Coverage of births reported to the GBR was 91.9% in 2016. Valid information on all six Robson variables accounted to 4205 (7.4%) of births, while missing information on one or more Robson (R99) variables were found in 92.6% of the birth records. Conclusion: The overall data quality in the GBR improved during the 1st year of implementation, but the data are unreliable for antenatal care and obstetric service. However, findings from this report show potential for improvements and further development of the GBR.

Prognostic Impacts of Angiopoietins in NSCLC Tumor Cells and Stroma : VEGF-A Impact Is Strongly Associated with Ang-2 Andersen, Sigve; Dønnem, Tom; Al-Shibli, Khalid Ibrahim; Al-Saad, Samer; Stenvold, Helge; Busund, Lill-Tove; Bremnes, Roy M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)Angiopoietins and their receptor Tie-2 are, in concert with VEGF-A, key mediators in angiogenesis. This study evaluates the prognostic impact of all known human angiopoietins (Ang-1, Ang-2 and Ang-4) and their receptor Tie-2, as well as their relation to the prognostic expression of VEGF-A. 335 unselected stage I-IIIA NSCLC-patients were included and tissue samples of respective tumor cells and ...
Humant papillomavirus : en litteraturstudie om HPV, dets relasjon til cancer og tiltak mot videre spredning av virus Gabrielsen, Endre (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2012-06-01)I 1983 oppdaget zur Hausen sammenhengen mellom Humant Papillomavirus (HPV) og livmorhalskreft. På denne tiden visste man ikke at det var HPV som var årsaken til at Helaceller kunne leve in vitro. Ny forskning relaterer HPV til en rekke andre cancertyper. En stor andel anal-, oropharyngeal-, penis-, vaginal-, og vulvacancer skyldes HPV. Det er også påvist HPV i tumorvev fra øsofagus, larynx, lunge, ...
Cardiovascular adaptation in pregnancy - Effects of angiotensin II, transverse aorta constriction and high-intensity interval training on pregnant rats Songstad, Nils Thomas (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2014-09-18)Objectives: To investigate how cardiac function, remodeling and gene expression are affected in pregnancy in response to cardiovascular stress, to detect possible adverse effects on the fetus, and to evaluate if coronary endothelial function is influenced by pregnancy and increased cardiac afterload. Methods: Pregnant and non-pregnant rats were subjected to chronic AngII-infusion, transverse aortic ...
