Adipokines and inflammation markers and risk of differentiated thyroid carcinoma: The EPIC study
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2017-11-23)
Other than the influence of ionizing radiation and benign thyroid disease, little is known about the risk factors for differentiated thyroid cancer (TC) which is an increasing common cancer worldwide. Consistent evidence shows that body mass is positively associated with TC risk. As excess weight is a state of chronic inflammation, we investigated the relationship between concentrations of leptin, ...
Two high-risk susceptibility loci at 6p25.3 and 14q32.13 for Waldenström macroglobulinemia
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-10-10)
Waldenström macroglobulinemia (WM)/lymphoplasmacytic lymphoma (LPL) is a rare, chronic B-cell lymphoma with high heritability. We conduct a two-stage genome-wide association study of WM/LPL in 530 unrelated cases and 4362 controls of European ancestry and identify two high-risk loci associated with WM/LPL at 6p25.3 (rs116446171, near EXOC2 and IRF4; OR = 21.14, 95% CI: 14.40–31.03, P = 1.36 × 10<s ...
Global, regional, and national disability-adjusted life-years (DALYs) for 359 diseases and injuries and healthy life expectancy (HALE) for 195 countries and territories, 1990–2017: a systematic analysis for the Global Burden of Disease Study 2017
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2018-11-08)
<p><i>Background - </i>How long one lives, how many years of life are spent in good and poor health, and how the population's state of health and leading causes of disability change over time all have implications for policy, planning, and provision of services. We comparatively assessed the patterns and trends of healthy life expectancy (HALE), which quantifies the number of years of life expected ...
Life expectancy and disease burden in the Nordic countries: results from the Global Burden of Diseases, Injuries, and Risk Factors Study 2017
(Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2019-11-20)
<i>Background</i> - The Nordic countries have commonalities in gender equality, economy, welfare, and health care, but differ in culture and lifestyle, which might create country-wise health differences. This study compared life expectancy, disease burden, and risk factors in the Nordic region.<p> <p><i>Methods</i> - Life expectancy in years and age-standardised rates of overall, cause-specific, ...
