    • Protected sampling is preferable in bronchoscopic studies of the airway microbiome 

      Grønseth, Rune; Drengenes, Christine; Wiker, Harald G; Tangedal, Solveig; Xue, Yaxin; Husebø, Gunnar; Svanes, Øistein; Lehmann, Sverre; Aardal, Marit Elisabeth; Hoang, Tuyen; Kalananthan, Tharmini; Martinsen, Einar Marius Hjellestad; Leiten, Elise Orvedal; Aanerud, Marianne; Nordeide, Eli; Haaland, Ingvild; Jonassen, Inge; Bakke, Per S.; Eagan, Tomas Mikal (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2017)
      The aim was to evaluate susceptibility of oropharyngeal contamination with various bronchoscopic sampling techniques. 67 patients with obstructive lung disease and 58 control subjects underwent bronchoscopy with ...

      van Rijn, Anneloes L.; van Boheemen, Sander; Sidorov, Igor; Carbo, Ellen C.; Pappas, Nikos; Mei, Hailiang; Feltkamp, Mariet; Aanerud, Marianne; Bakke, Per S.; Claas, Eric C.J.; Eagan, Tomas Mikal; Hiemstra, Pieter S.; Kroes, Aloys C.M.; de Vries, Jutte J.C. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-10-24)
      Introduction: Exacerbations are major contributors to morbidity and mortality in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), and respiratory bacterial and viral infections are an important trigger. However, ...
    • Sputum microbiota and inflammation at stable state and during exacerbations in a cohort of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) patients 

      Tangedal, Solveig; Nielsen, Rune; Aanerud, Marianne; Persson, Louise Jeanette Pauline; Wiker, Harald G; Bakke, Per S.; Hiemstra, Pieter S.; Eagan, Tomas Mikal (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019-09-17)
