Persistent Organic Pollutants and the Association with Maternal and Infant Thyroid Homeostasis: A Multipollutant Assessment
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01)
Background:<br>Disruption of thyroid homeostasis has been indicated in human studies targeting effects of persistent organic pollutants (POPs). Influence on the maternal thyroid system by POPs is of special interest during pregnancy because such effects could impair infant thyroid homeostasis.<br> Objectives:<br>We investigated the association between POPs and thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) ...
Thyroid homeostasis in mother–child pairs in relation to maternal iodine status. The MISA study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-05-24)
BACKGROUND/OBJECTIVES: Iodine deficiency during pregnancy may influence maternal and foetal thyroid function with the risk of causing neurocognitive and psychomotor deficits in the offspring. The objective of this study was to assess iodine status in pregnant women from Northern Norway and to investigate the influence of iodine status on maternal and infant thyroid function. <br>SUBJECTS/METHODS: ...
The impacts of emission trends of POPs on human concentration dynamics: Lessons learned from a longitudinal study in Norway (1979-2007)
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-02-20)
Background. In this short communication, our focus is on the relationship between human concentrations of select persistent organic pollutants (POPs) and environmental emissions. It is based on a longitudinal study (1979-2007) conducted in Norway. Objectives. Our aim was to extract general insights from observed and predicted temporal trends in human concentrations of 49 POPs to assist in the design ...
Overview of ongoing cohort and dietary studies in the Arctic
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-01-23)
This article gives an overview of the ongoing cohort and dietary studies underlying the assessment of population health in the Arctic. The emphasis here is on a description of the material, methods and results or preliminary results for each study. Detailed exposure information is available in an article in this journal, whereas another paper describes the effects associated with contaminant ...
