Serum osteoprotegerin and renal function in the general population: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-10-03)
<p><i>Background</i>: Serum osteoprotegerin (OPG) is elevated in patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD) and increases with decreasing renal function. However, there are limited data regarding the association between OPG and renal function in the general population. The aim of the present study was to explore the relation between serum OPG and renal function in subjects recruited from the general ...
Impact of incident myocardial infarction on the risk of venous thromboembolism: the Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-05-10)
Background: Recent studies have demonstrated an association between venous thromboembolism (VTE) and arterial thrombotic diseases. <p> Objectives: We aimed to study the association between incident myocardial infarction (MI) and VTE in a prospective population-based cohort. <p> Methods: Study participants (n=29 506) were recruited from three surveys of the Tromsø Study (conducted in 1994-95, 2001-02 ...
Associations between Common and Rare Exonic Genetic Variants and Serum Levels of 20 Cardiovascular-Related Proteins: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-06-21)
Background—Genetic variation can be used to study causal relationships between biomarkers and diseases. Here, we identify new common and rare genetic variants associated with cardiovascular-related protein levels (protein quantitative trait loci [pQTLs]). We functionally annotate these pQTLs, predict and experimentally confirm a novel molecular interaction, and determine which pQTLs are associated ...
Atherosclerotic risk factors and risk of myocardial infarction and venous thromboembolism; Time-fixed versus time-varying analyses. The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-09-16)
<i>Background:</i> Single measurements of modifiable risk factors may underestimate associations with outcomes in cohorts. We aimed to compare risk estimates of myocardial infarction (MI) and venous thromboembolism (VTE) by atherosclerotic risk factors during long follow-up using time-fixed analyses without and with correction for regression dilution and time-varying analyses.<p> <p><i>Methods:</i> ...
Ischemic Stroke and Risk of Venous Thromboembolism in the General Population: The Tromsø Study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2016-11-07)
<i>Background</i> - Even though clinical data support a relation between ischemic stroke and venous thromboembolism (VTE), the strength and time dependence of the association remain to be settled at the population level. We therefore aimed to investigate the association between ischemic stroke and VTE in a prospective population-based cohort.<p> <p><i>Methods and Results</i> - Participants (n=30 ...
