Background: A majority of Crohn’s disease (CD) patients report that their symptoms are related to food ingestion. However, there are lacking evidence for what kind of nutrient patterns and nutrient intake that decrease ...
Serum 25(OH)D Is a 2-Year Predictor of All-Cause Mortality, Cardiac Death and Sudden Cardiac Death in Chest Pain Patients from Northern Argentina
(Public Library of Science, 2012-09-06)
Background: Several studies have shown an association between vitamin D deficiency and cardiovascular risk. Vitamin D status is assessed by determination of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] in serum. Methods: We assessed the ...

Immunological aspects of acute myelogenous leukemia
(The University of Bergen, 2007-02-23)
Acute myelogenous leukemia (AML) is an aggressive malignancy characterized by accumulation of immature myeloid cells in the bone marrow. The overall disease-free survival is less than 50% even for the younger patients ...
Severity of Giardia infection associated with post-infectious fatigue and abdominal symptoms two years after
(BioMed Central, 2009-12-15)
Background: A high rate of post-infectious fatigue and abdominal symptoms two years after a waterborne outbreak of giardiasis in Bergen, Norway in 2004 has previously been reported. The aim of this report was to identify ...
Impact of IL28B-Related Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms on Liver Histopathology in Chronic Hepatitis C Genotype 2 and 3
(Public Library of Science, 2012-01-13)
