    • Quality or equality? : the Norwegian experience with medical monopolies 

      Bratlid, Dag; Rasmussen, Knut (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2007-02-15)
      Background: In order to maintain both quality and efficiency of health services in a small country with a scattered population, Norway established a monopoly system for 38 highly specialized medical services. The geographical distributions of these services, which are provided by one or two university hospitals only, were analysed. Methods: The counties of residence for 2 711 patients admitted ...

    • Race/ethnic differences in the associations of the Framingham risk factors with carotid IMT and cardiovascular events 

      Gijsberts, Crystel M.; Groenewegen, Karlijn A.; Hoefer, Imo E.; Eijkemans, Marinus J.C.; Asselbergs, Folkert W.; Anderson, Todd J.; Britton, Annie R.; Dekker, Jacqueline M.; Engström, Gunnar; Evans, Greg W.; de Graaf, Jacqueline; Grobbee, Diederick E.; Hedblad, Bo; Holewijn, Suzanne; Ikeda, Ai; Kitagawa, Kazuo; Kitamura, Akihiko; De Kleijn, Dominique P.V.; Lonn, Eva M.; Lorenz, Matthias W.; Mathiesen, Ellisiv B.; Nijpels, Giel; Okazaki, Shuhei; O'Leary, Daniel H.; Pasterkamp, Gerard; Peters, Sanne A.E.; Polak, Joseph F.; Price, Jacqueline F.; Rembold, Christopher M.; Rosvall, Maria; Rundek, Tatjana; Salonen, Jukka T.; Sitzer, Matthias; Stehouwer, Coen D.A.; Bots, Michiel L.; Den Ruijter, Hester M. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-07-02)
      Background Clinical manifestations and outcomes of atherosclerotic disease differ between ethnic groups. In addition, the prevalence of risk factors is substantially different. Primary prevention programs are based on data derived from almost exclusively White people. We investigated how race/ethnic differences modify the associations of established risk factors with atherosclerosis and ...
    • Radiotherapy and the tumor stroma: the importance of dose and fractionation 

      Hellevik, Turid; Martinez, Inigo Zubiavrre (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2014)
      Ionizing radiation (IR) is a non-specific but highly effective way to kill malignant cells. However, tumor recurrence sustained by a minor fraction of surviving tumor cells is a commonplace phenomenon caused by the activation of both cancer cell intrinsic resistance mechanisms, and also extrinsic intermediaries of therapy resistance, represented by non-malignant cells and structural components of ...
    • Randomized phase II trial comparing twice daily hyperfractionated with once daily hypofractionated thoracic radiotherapy in limited disease small cell lung cancer 

      Grønberg, Bjørn Henning; Halvorsen, Tarje Onsøien; Fløtten, Øystein; Brustugun, Odd Terje; Brunsvig, Paal Fr.; Aasebø, Ulf; Bremnes, Roy M.; Tollåli, Terje; Hornslien, Kjersti; Aksnessæther, Bjørg Y.; Liaaen, Erik Dyb; Sundstrøm, Stein Harald (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-10-23)
      <br>BACKGROUND: <br> Concurrent chemotherapy and thoracic radiotherapy (TRT) is recommended for limited disease small cell lung cancer (LD SCLC). Twice daily TRT is well documented, but not universally implemented - probably mainly due to inconvenience and concerns about toxicity. A schedule of three-week hypofractionated TRT is a commonly used alternative. This is the first randomized trial ...

      Gabarron, Elia; Serrano, Artur; Fernandez Luque, Luis; Wynn, Rolf; Schopf, Thomas Roger Griesbeck (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-04-08)
      <p>Background: Chlamydia is the most common reportable sexually transmitted disease (STD) in Norway, and its incidence in the two northernmost counties has been disclosed to be nearly the double of the Norwegian average. The latest publicly available rates showed that 85.6% of the new cases were diagnosed in people under 29 years old. The information and communication technologies are among the ...

Efficacy endpoints, assessed by questionnaires at 3 and 12 months, included change ...
    • A rapid chemokine response of macrophage inflammatory protein (MIP)-1 alpha, MIP-1 beta and the regulated on activation, normal T expressed and secreted chemokine is associated with a sustained virological response in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C 

      Florholmen, Jon; Kristiansen, Magnhild Gangsøy; Steigen, sonja eriksson; Sørbye, Sveinung Wergeland; Paulssen, Eyvind Jakob; Kvamme, J.M.; Zbigniew, Konopski; Gutteberg, tore jarl; Goll, Rasmus (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The role of chemokines in chronic hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection is not fully understood. The present study aimed to characterize the baseline serum concentrations and the initial β-chemokine response to treatment with interferon-α and ribavirin with respect to the final clinical outcome of virological response to treatment. Serum concentrations of alanine aminotransferase (ALT) and of the CC ...

    • Rat liver sinusoidal endothelial cells (LSECs) express functional low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 (LRP-1) 

      Øie, Cristina Ionica; Appa, Rupa Shree; Hilden, Ida; Petersen, Helle Heibroch; Gruhler, Albrecht; Smedsrød, Bård; Hansen, John-Bjarne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2011)
      The low density lipoprotein receptor-related protein-1 (LRP-1) is a large, multifunctional endocytic receptor from the LDL receptor family, highly expressed in liver parenchymal cells (PCs), neurons, activated astrocytes, and fibroblasts. The aim of the study was to investigate if liver sinusoidal endothelial cells (LSECs), highly specialized scavenger cells, express LRP-1. To address this question, ...
    • The recent history of the clinical case report: A narrative review 

      Nissen, Trygve; Wynn, Rolf (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2012)
      Clinical case reporting in the form of case reports and case series reports has always been an integral part of medical literature. From the late 1970s the genre appeared to fall from grace and was marginalized in many medical journals. There was controversy as to its value as a research method. From the late 1990s and onwards, there has been an increased demand for and publication of case reports ...
    • Recombinant human activated protein C ameliorates oleic acid-induced lung injury in awake sheep 

      Wærhaug, Kristine; Kirov, Mikhail Y.; Kuzkov, Vsevolod V.; Kuklin, Vladimir N.; Bjertnæs, Lars J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2008-11-20)
      Introduction: Acute lung injury (ALI) may arise both after sepsis and non-septic inflammatory conditions and is often associated with the release of fatty acids, including oleic acid (OA). Infusion of OA has been used extensively to mimic ALI. Recent research has revealed that intravenously administered recombinant human activated protein C (rhAPC) is able to counteract ALI. Our aim was to ...
    • Recombinant human activated protein C attenuates endotoxin-induced lung injury in awake sheep 

      Langbakk, Bodil; Wærhaug, Kristine; Kuklin, Vladimir N.; Kirov, Mikhail Y.; Sovershaev, Mikhail; Ingebretsen, Ole C.; Ytrehus, Kirsti; Bjertnæs, Lars J. (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2008-08-15)
      Introduction: Acute lung injury often complicates severe sepsis. In Gram-negative sepsis, bacterial endotoxin activates both coagulation and inflammation. Enhanced lung vascular pressures and permeability, increased extravascular lung water content and deteriorated gas exchange characterize ovine endotoxin-induced lung injury, a frequently used model of acute lung injury. Recombinant human ...
    • Red cell distribution width and carotid atherosclerosis progression: The Tromsø study 

      Lappegård, Jostein; Ellingsen, Trygve; Vik, Anders; Skjelbakken, Tove; Brox, Jan; Mathiesen, Ellisiv B.; Johnsen, Stein Harald; Brækkan, Sigrid Kufaas; Hansen, John-Bjarne (Journal article; Tidsskriftartikkel; Peer reviewed, 2015-01-29)
      Red cell distribution width (RDW), a measure of the size variability of circulating erythrocytes, is associated with cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. We aimed to investigate whether RDW was associated with progression of atherosclerotic plaques in subjects recruited from the general population. Baseline characteristics, including RDW, were collected from 4677 participants in the fourth survey ...

      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 ...
