This may induce complement- and coagulation activation, which potentially increases the risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). The aim of the present study was to investigate whether the activity of the complement pathways, the level of mannose-binding ...

    Orrem, Hilde Lang; Shetelig, Christian; Ueland, Thor; Limalanathan, Shanmuganathan; Nilsson, Per; Husebye, Trygve Guttorm; Aukrust, Pål; Seljeflot, Ingebjørg; Hoffmann, Pavel; Eritsland, Jan; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Andersen, Geir Øystein; Yndestad, Arne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-05-28)
    <p><i>Background</i>: The inflammatory response following myocardial infarction (MI) is prerequisite for proper healing of infarcted tissue, but can also have detrimental effects on cardiac function. Interleukin (IL)-1α and IL-1β are potent inflammatory mediators and their bioactivity is tightly regulated by IL-1 receptor antagonist (IL-1ra) and soluble (s) IL-1 receptors (R). We aimed to examine ...

    Red cell distribution width (RDW) is associated with venous thromboembolism (VTE), but the underlying mechanism(s) is unclear. Iron deficiency is associated with high RDW, and studies suggest an association between iron deficiency and VTE. To assess whether iron deficiency is a risk factor for VTE that explains the association between RDW and VTE, we conducted a nested case-control study of 390 ...

  • Effekt av fysioterapi ved kneleddsartrose, begrenset til elektroterapi og øvelsesbehandling 

    Bjordal, Jan Magnus; Johansen, Oddmund; Holm, Inger; Zapffe, Knut; Nilsen, Ellen M; Kristiansen, Ivar Sønbø; Linnestad, Kristin Kamilla; Hofmann, Bjørn (Research report; Forskningsrapport, 2004)
    De viktigste symptomene ved kneleddsartrose er leddsmerter, nedsatt bevegelighet og muskelstyrke som etter hvert gir nedsatt funksjon og evne til å utføre dagliglivets aktiviteter. Mange av personene som rammes av kneleddsartrose er også overvektige som igjen kan føre til andre helseplager som kardiovaskulære lidelser og høyt blodtrykk. Fysioterapi, i form av øvelsesbehandling og elektroterapi, ...
