    • D-Dimer Measured at Diagnosis of Venous Thromboembolism is Associated with Risk of Major Bleeding 

      Johnsen, Håkon Sanbukt; Hindberg, Kristian; Bjøri, Esben; Brodin, Ellen Elisabeth; Brækkan, Sigrid Kufaas; Morelli, Vania Maris; Hansen, John-Bjarne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-03-25)
      Identification of patients at risk of major bleeding is pivotal for optimal management of anticoagulant therapy in venous thromboembolism (VTE). Studies have suggested that D-dimer may predict major bleeding during anticoagulation; however, this is scarcely investigated in VTE patients. We aimed to investigate the role of D-dimer, measured at VTE diagnosis, as a predictive biomarker of major bleeding. ...
    • D-Dimer Measured At First Venous Thromboembolism Is Associated With Future Risk Of Cancer 

      Gran, Olga Vikhammer; Brækkan, Sigrid Kufaas; Paulsen, Benedikte; Skille, Hanne; Hansen, John-Bjarne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-12)
      D-dimer >5000 ng/ml at incident VTE is associated with a higher risk of subsequent cancer within one and two years. High D-dimer levels are also associated with more aggressive tumor biology and poor prognosis in these patients. As D-dimer is routinely measured in the assessment of suspected VTE, it may be a useful surrogate marker for the presence of an underlying malignancy. Our findings may suggest ...
    • Dacarbazine and the Agonistic TRAIL Receptor-2 Antibody Lexatumumab Induce Synergistic Anticancer Effects in Melanoma 

      Engesæter, Birgit Øvstebø; Engebråten, Olav; Flørenes, Vivi Ann; Mælandsmo, Gunhild (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Mapatumumab and lexatumumab (targeting death receptor 4 (DR4) and 5 (DR5), respectively) are agonistic TRAIL receptor antibodies that induce apoptosis in a wide range of cancer cells. The potency of mapatumumab and lexatumumab was assessed in mono therapy protocols, and the ability to sensitize for dacarbazine (DTIC) treatment was explored in ten different melanoma cell lines. Our data indicated ...

(2017) [1]). Data are presented demonstrating the rationale for the normalization or rescaling of serum cystatin C, equivalent to the rescaling of serum ...
    • The DBP Phenotype Gc-1f/Gc-1f is associated with reduced risk of cancer. The Tromsø Study 

      Jorde, Rolf; Schirmer, Henrik; Wilsgaard, Tom; Mathiesen, Ellisiv B.; Løchen, Maja-Lisa; Joakimsen, Ragnar Martin; Grimnes, Guri (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-05-18)
      Background and Objective In addition to its role as a transport protein, the vitamin D binding protein (DBP) may also affect lipid metabolism, inflammation and carcinogenesis. There are three common variants of the DBP, Gc1s (1s), Gc1f (1f), Gc2 (2) that result in six common phenotypes (1s/1s, 1s/ 1f, 1s/2, 1f/1f, 1f/2, and 2/2). These phenotypes can be identified by genotyping for the two single ...

      <i>Objectives</i>: The objectives of this study were to assess the interexaminer agreement between one “reference” (gold standard) and each of two examiners, using the DC/TMD examination method, Axis I and to evaluate whether a recalibration changed reliability values. <p> <p><i>Methods</i>: Participants (4 healthy and 12 TMD patients) in 2013 underwent a clinical examination according to ...
    • Dealing with negative stereotypes in sports: The role of cognitive anxiety when multiple identities are activated in sensorimotor tasks 

      Martiny, Sarah E.; Gleibs, Ilka H.; Parks-Stamm, Elizabeth J.; Martiny-Huenger, Torsten; Froehlich, Laura; Harter, Anna-Lena; Roth, Jenny (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08)
      Based on research on stereotype threat and multiple identities, this work explores the beneficial effects of activating a positive social identity when a negative identity is salient on women’s performance in sports. Further, in line with research on the effects of anxiety in sports, we investigate whether the activation of a positive social identity buffers performance from cognitive anxiety ...
    • Dealing with suicidal patients : a challenging task : a qualitative study of young physicians´experiences 

      Høifødt, Tordis Sørensen; Talseth, Anne-Grethe (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2006)
      Abstract Background Suicide is a major public health problem and treating suicidal patients represents one of the most challenging and complex clinical situations for young physicians. Education of physicians is considered an important strategy in suicide prevention. Young physicians often meet suicidal patients early in their career. Limited information is available about how newly educated ...

    • Death after trauma in the rural High North 

      Bakke, Håkon Kvåle (Doctoral thesis; Doktorgradsavhandling, 2013-09-18)
      The work of this thesis was initiated because Finnmark County had a mortality rate from external causes well above national average for several decades. The aims of the thesis were to 1) investigate possible reasons for Finnmark’s’ elevated death rate from external causes, 2) identify challenges that a trauma system in Scandinavia must be tailored to meet, and 3) find access points to limit ...
    • Debate in science: The case of acculturation 

      Rudmin, Floyd Webster (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2006)
      The acculturation paradigm of measuring assimilation, separation, integration and marginalization confuses dimensional and categorical conceptions of its constructs, fails to produce ipsative data from mutually exclusive scales, misoperationalizes marginalization as distress, mismeasures biculturalism using double-barreled questions instead of computing it from unicultural measures, and then tends ...
    • Decentralization matters - Differently organized mental health services relationship to staff competence and treatment practice : the VELO study 

      Bjorbekkmo, Svein; Olstad, Reidun; Sørgaard, Knut; Myklebust, Lars H.; Molvik, Stian; Nymann, Asle (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2009-05-18)
      Background: The VELO study is a comparative study of two Community Mental Health Centres (CMHC) in Northern Norway. The CMHCs are organized differently: one has no local inpatient unit, the other has three. Both CMHCs use the Central Mental Hospital situated rather far away for compulsory and other admissions, but one uses mainly local beds while the other uses only central hospital beds. In ...
