Immunophenotyping in post-giardiasis functional gastrointestinal disease and chronic fatigue syndrome
(BioMed Central, 2012-10-14)
Background: A Giardia outbreak was associated with development of post-infectious functional gastrointestinal disorders (PI-FGID) and chronic fatigue syndrome (PI-CFS). Markers of immune dysfunction have given conflicting ...
Bioinformatic and Genetic Association Analysis of MicroRNA Target Sites in One-Carbon Metabolism Genes
(Public Library of Science, 2011-07-12)
One-carbon metabolism (OCM) is linked to DNA synthesis and methylation, amino acid metabolism and cell proliferation. OCM dysfunction has been associated with increased risk for various diseases, including cancer and ...
The combination of valproic acid, all-trans retinoic acid and low-dose cytarabine as disease-stabilizing treatment in acute myeloid leukemia
(BioMed Central, 2013-08-01)
Background: A large proportion of patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) are not fit for intensive and potentially curative therapy due to advanced age or comorbidity. Previous studies have demonstrated that a subset of ...
Patient-reported outcomes as predictors of 10-year survival in women after acute myocardial infarction
(BioMed Central, 2010-11-25)
Background Patient-reported outcomes are increasingly seen as complementary to biomedical measures. However, their prognostic importance has yet to be established, particularly in female long-term myocardial infarction ...
Prior statin use and 90-day mortality in Gram-negative and Gram-positive bloodstream infection: a prospective observational study
n several studies on patients with bloodstream infection (BSI), prior use of statins has been associated with improved survival. Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria alert the innate immune system in different ways. ...
Krill oil attenuates left ventricular dilatation after myocardial infarction in rats
(BioMed Central, 2011-12-29)
Background: In the western world, heart failure (HF) is one of the most important causes of cardiovascular mortality. Supplement with n-3 polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) has been shown to improve cardiac function in HF ...
Contrast stress echocardiography in hypertensive heart disease
(BioMed Central, 2011-11-18)
Hypertension is associated with atherosclerosis and cardiac and vascular structural and functional changes. Myocardial ischemia may arise in hypertension independent of coronary artery disease through an interaction between ...
Evaluation of interferon-beta neutralizing antibodies in individual patients with multiple sclerosis based on phospho-specific flow cytometry
(The University of Bergen, 2013-03-19)
Background: Recombinant human interferon-beta (IFN-β) is the most frequently used drug for treating relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis (RRMS), a demyelinating disease of the central nervous system. It modulates the ...
Giardiasis : with emphasis on treatment and post-infectious manifestations

Markers of nephropathy in young Fabry disease patients; role of kidney biopsies and functional measurements
(The University of Bergen, 2013-04-05)
Backgound: Fabry disease is an X-linked disease affecting glycosphingolipid metabolism due to deficiency of the lysosomal enzyme α-galactosidase. The natural course of the disease is related to progressive accumulation ...
