(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-04-25)
    Selenoprotein genetic variations and suboptimal selenium (Se) levels may contribute to the risk of colorectal cancer (CRC) development. We examined the association between CRC risk and genotype for single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in selenoprotein and Se metabolic pathway genes. <i>Illumina Goldengate</i> assays were designed and resulted in the genotyping of 1040 variants in 154 genes ...

  • Forebygging av seksuelle overgrep mot barn og unge. Prosessevaluering av kommunalt prosjekt. 

    Svenning, Therese Olsen (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-08-01)
    Sammendrag. Seksuelle overgrep mot barn (SOB) er et folkehelseproblem som ofte fører til alvorlige skadelidelser både på kort og lang sikt. Reell forebygging er vanskelig å måle fordi det ikke finnes sikre prevalenstall. Det er trolig store mørketall i statistikken over seksuallovbrudd fordi veldig mange ikke blir anmeldt. Denne norske studien undersøker et kommunalt forebyggingsprosjekts bakgrunn, ...
  • Suicidal behaviour in adolescence and later mental healthcare use: a population-based registry study of Norwegian youth. Exploring potential gender differences and ethnic differences between indigenous Sami and non-Sami 

    Sørvold, Maria Therene (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2017-07-28)
    Background: The prevalence of suicidal behaviour among adolescents are high, and act as a risk factor of suicide. Suicide is considered a public health problem worldwide. Indigenous people are in general at higher risk of suicide than the majority population, and there are gender differences in the pathways of suicidal behaviour and suicides. Objectives: To investigate the association and importance ...
  • 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 ...

    <p><i>BACKGROUND - </i>The clinical presentation of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) shows a large symptom variation also in different intensities among patients. As several studies have shown, there is a large overlap in the symptomatic spectrum between proven GERD and other disorders such as dyspepsia, functional heartburn and/or somatoform disorders. <p><i>AIM - </i>To prospectively ...
  • The Evidence Base for an Ideal Care Pathway for Frail Multimorbid Elderly: Combined Scoping and Systematic Intervention Review

    <i>Background</i>: There is a call for bold and innovative action to transform the current care systems to meet the needs of an increasing population of frail multimorbid elderly. International health organizations propose complex transformations toward digitally supported (1) Person-centered, (2) Integrated, and (3) Proactive care (Digi-PIP care). However, uncertainty regarding both the design and ...

    <p><i>Background - </i>Recruitment and inclusion procedures in clinical trials are time critical. This holds particularly true for studies investigating patients with fluctuating symptom patterns, like those with chronic neck pain. In a feasibility study on neck pain, we found a clinically relevant decrease in pain ratings within the recruitment period. This paper analyses the phenomenon and gives ...

    Salomonsson, Håkan Edvin Johannes (Master thesis; Mastergradsoppgave, 2018-07-21)
    Background: Drug policies in western countries, as well as countries in most other parts of the world, support self-medication with Over-The-Counter (OTC) drugs. The switch from prescription (Rx)-to-OTC has been most common in the Nordic countries, Great Britain and Germany in the last decades and deregulations were done to make it possible to sell OTC analgesics other places than under the pharmacy ...

    Sarink, Danja; Schock, Helena; Johnson, Theron; Chang-Claude, Jenny; Overvad, Kim; Olsen, Anja; Tjønneland, Anne; Arveux, Patrick; Fournier, Agnès; Kvaskoff, Marina; Boeing, Heiner; Karakatsani, Anna; Trichopoulou, Antonia; La Vecchia, Carlo; Masala, Giovanna; Agnoli, Claudia; Panico, Salvatore; Tumino, Rosario; Sacerdote, Carlotta; van Gils, Carla H.; Peeters, Petra H.M.; Weiderpass, Elisabete; Agudo, Antonio; Rodríguez-Barranco, Miguel; Huerta, José María; Ardanaz, Eva; Gil, Leire; Kaw, Kay Tee; Schmidt, Julie A.; Dossus, Laure; His, Mathilde; Aune, Dagfinn; Riboli, Elio; Kaaks, Rudolf; Fortner, Renée T. (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 ...
