The relation between serum parathyroid hormone (PTH) and blood pressure. The Tromsø study
The objective of the present cross-sectional epidemiological study from Tromsø, North Norway was to evaluate the relation between blood pressure and serum parathyroid hormone (PTH). 10419 subjects were invited to participate in the fifth Tromsø study and 8128 attended. 7954 subjects had serum PTH measured, and among these, information on blood pressure medication was available in 5841 subjects (2554 males) with serum calcium within the reference range 2.20-2.60 mmol/L. In a multiple linear regression model with age, BMI, serum calcium, serum creatinine, and smoking status as covariables, serum PTH was a significant and positive predictor of systolic and diastolic blood pressure in both genders. When dividing the cohort in PTH quartiles, and adjusting for age, BMI, serum calcium, and serum creatinine, the differences between the lowest and highest PTH quartile in systolic and diastolic blood pressure were 5.0 and 3.5 mmHg for males and 4.1 and 2.5 mmHg for females, respectively. In previous studies we have found serum PTH to be a positive predictor for future increase in blood pressure, and also that the association between serum PTH and blood pressure cannot alone be ascribed to a blood pressure induced increase in urinary calcium excretion. To further elucidate the relation between serum PTH and blood pressure, randomized clinical trials with calcium and/or vitamin D supplementation to subjects with increased serum PTH levels are needed.

Nikolaisen, Trygg Einar (Mastergradsoppgave; Master thesis, 2018-05-15)Introduction: Liposomes as drug delivery systems has been widely studied as a way to solubilize poorly soluble drugs, reduce side effects of chemotherapeutics and increase circulation time in vivo. Since the first descriptions of liposomes over 60 years ago, they have shown tendencies to shrink and swell when the external environment of the liposomes is altered. This phenomenon has been studied in ...
The Temporomandibular Joint in Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, focusing on Quality of Life, Oral Microbiome and Intervention Frid, Paula (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2020-10-02)The temporomandibular joint (TMJ) is commonly involved in juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA), and may lead to impaired mouth opening, pain and facial growth disturbances. Asymptomatic TMJ arthritis may be diagnosed late in the disease course, thus management is challenging. The overall objectives of this thesis were to provide new knowledge on quality of life (QoL), the oral microbiome and interventions ...
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 ...
