Isocaloric substitution of carbohydrates with protein: The association with weight change and mortality among patients with type 2 diabetes
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-04-18)
Background: The health impact of dietary replacement of carbohydrates with protein for patients with type 2 diabetes is still debated. This study aimed to investigate the association between dietary substitution of carbohydrates with (animal and plant) protein and 5-year weight change, and all-cause and cardiovascular (CVD) mortality risk in patients with type 2 diabetes. <p>Methods: The study ...

Circulating biomarkers of one-carbon metabolism in relation to renal cell carcinoma incidence and survival
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014-11-05)
The etiology of renal cell carcinoma (RCC) is only partially understood, but a metabolic component appears likely. We investigated biomarkers of one-carbon metabolism and RCC onset and survival. Methods The European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) recruited 385747 participants with blood samples between 1992 and 2000, and this analysis included 556 RCC case-control pairs. ...
Measured adiposity in relation to head and neck cancer risk in the European prospective investigation into cancer and nutrition.
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel, 2017-06)
<b>Background</b>: Emerging evidence from cohort studies indicates that adiposity is associated with greater incidence of head and neck cancer. However, most studies have used self-reported anthropometry which is prone to error.<br><b>Methods</b>: Among 363,094 participants in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition study (EPIC) with measured anthropometry, there were 837 ...
Nut intake and 5-year changes in body weight and obesity risk in adults: results from the EPIC-PANACEA study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-07-21)
<p><i>Purpose</i>: There is inconsistent evidence regarding the relationship between higher intake of nuts, being an energy-dense food, and weight gain. We investigated the relationship between nut intake and changes in weight over 5 years.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: This study includes 373,293 men and women, 25–70 years old, recruited between 1992 and 2000 from 10 European countries in the European ...
Prediagnostic circulating concentrations of plasma insulin-like growth factor-I and risk of lymphoma in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-12-27)
Insulin-like growth factor (IGF)-I has cancer promoting activities. However, the hypothesis that circulating IGF-I concentration is related to risk of lymphoma overall or its subtypes has not been examined prospectively. IGF-I concentration was measured in pre-diagnostic plasma samples from a nested case–control study of 1,072 cases of lymphoid malignancies and 1,072 individually matched controls ...
Meal patterns across ten European countries - Results from the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) calibration study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-19)
Objective: To characterize meal patterns across ten European countries participating in the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) calibration study. Design: Cross-sectional study utilizing dietary data collected through a standardized 24 h diet recall during 1995–2000. Eleven predefined intake occasions across a 24 h period were assessed during the interview. In ...
