High-sensitivity C-reactive protein is not a risk factor for venous thromboembolism: the Tromso study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
High-sensitivity C-reactive protein is associated with risk of arterial cardiovascular disease but conflicting results have been reported on its role in venous thromboembolic disease. The objective of our study was to investigate the association between high-sensitivity C-reactive protein levels and risk of future venous thromboembolism in a prospective cohort recruited from a general population. ...

(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
Red cell distribution width is associated with future risk of incident stroke. The Tromsø study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-08-20)
Red cell distribution width (RDW), a measure of the variability in size of the circulating erythrocytes, is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We aimed to investigate whether RDW was associated with incident stroke and case fatality in subjects recruited from the general population. Baseline characteristics were obtained from 25,992 subjects participating in the fourth ...
