Repeated acetylcholine receptor antibody-concentrations and association to clinical myasthenia gravis development
(Public Library of Science, 2014-12-02)
Introduction: We aimed to examine the longitudinal association between Myasthenia Gravis (MG) clinical severity and concentration of acetylcholine receptor (AChR)-antibodies to evaluate if AChR-antibody variations correlate ...
Effekt av FODMAP-redusert kost på symptomer, livskvalitet og gassproduksjon hos pasienter med funksjonell dyspepsi
(The University of Bergen, 2014-05-15)
Rationale: FODMAPs (fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols) is a group of carbohydrates poorly absorbed in the small intestine - some will therefore serve as substrate for colonic fermentation. Studies show ...
Duodenal Chromogranin A Cell Density as a Biomarker for the Diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Background and Aim. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a common marker for endocrine cells. The density of duodenal CgA cells is reduced in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Methods. The present study was undertaken to ...
Acute ischemic stroke. Factors that predict outcome
(The University of Bergen, 2009-11-05)
Determining universal processes related to best outcome in emergency abdominal surgery: A multicentre, international, prospective cohort study
Introduction: Emergency abdominal surgery outcomes represent an internationally important marker of healthcare quality and capacity. In this study, a novel approach to investigating global surgical outcomes is proposed, ...
Total drug treatment and comorbidity in myasthenia gravis: a population-based cohort study
Background and purpose: Comorbidity in myasthenia gravis (MG) is important for diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Disease complexity was assessed by examining total drug treatment, immune therapy and comorbidity in a ...
An 18-Gene signature for vascular invasion is associated with aggressive features and reduced survival in breast cancer
Aims: Vascular invasion by tumor cells is known to be important for cancer progression. By microarray and qPCR analyses, we earlier identified an 18-gene signature associated with vascular involvement in endometrial cancer. ...
Co-prescription of medication for bipolar disorder and diabetes mellitus: a nationwide population-based study with focus on gender differences
(BioMed Central, 2012-11-27)
Background: Studies have shown a correlation between bipolar disorder and diabetes mellitus. It is unclear if this correlation is a part of common pathophysiological pathways, or if medication for bipolar disorder has ...
Identification and characterisation of regionally enriched cortex genes in the rat brain
(The University of Bergen, 2012-06-14)
Drug-induced activation of SREBP-controlled lipogenic gene expression in CNS-related cell lines: Marked differences between various antipsychotic drugs
(BioMed Central, 2006-10-20)
Background: The etiology of schizophrenia is unknown, but neurodevelopmental disturbances, myelin- and oligodendrocyte abnormalities and synaptic dysfunction have been suggested as pathophysiological factors in this ...
