Bypassing adverse injection reactions to nanoparticles through shape modification and attachment to erythrocytes
(Journal article; Manuskript; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-04-10)
Intravenously injected nanopharmaceuticals, including PEGylated nanoparticles, induce adverse cardiopulmonary reactions in sensitive human subjects, and these reactions are highly reproducible in pigs. Although the underlying mechanisms are poorly understood, roles for both the complement system and reactive macrophages have been implicated. Here, we show the dominance and importance of robust ...
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 ...
Genetic variation in the ADIPOQ gene, adiponectin concentrations and risk of colorectal cancer: a Mendelian Randomization analysis using data from three large cohort studies
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-05-26)
Higher levels of circulating adiponectin have been related to lower risk of colorectal cancer in several prospective cohort studies, but it remains unclear whether this association may be causal. We aimed to improve causal inference in a Mendelian Randomization meta-analysis using nested case–control studies of the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC, 623 cases, 623 ...
Prediagnostic calcium intake and lung cancer survival: A pooled analysis of 12 cohort studies
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Manuskript; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-03-06)
<p><i>Background</i>: Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer death. Little is known about whether prediagnostic nutritional factors may affect survival. We examined the associations of prediagnostic calcium intake from foods and/or supplements with lung cancer survival.</p> <p><i>Methods</i>: The present analysis included 23,882 incident, primary lung cancer patients from 12 prospective cohort ...
Mate Choice could be Random in Female Rats (Rattus norvegicus)
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Preprint; Manuskript, 2017-11-01)
Female mate choice is often investigated in terms of reproductive success in order to understand how male characteristics contribute to sexual attractiveness. Previous studies have found that females rats prefer mating with their first encounter rather than males visited subsequently, suggesting that the rewarding value of this first encounter is enough to reinforce mating with the first partner. ...
Characterization and pro-inflammatory responses of spore and hyphae samples from various mold species
(Journal article; Manuskript; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed; Preprint, 2017-09-18)
Mold particles from <i>Aspergillus fumigatus, Penicillium chrysogenum, Aspergillus versicolor</i>, and <i>Stachybotrys chartarum</i> have been linked to respiratory‐related diseases. We characterized X‐ray‐inactivated spores and hyphae fragments from these species by number of particles, morphology, and mycotoxin, β‐glucan and protease content/activity. The pro‐inflammatory properties of mold particles ...
