      Background Motor and cognitive impairments are frequently observed following stroke, but are often managed as distinct entities, and there is little evidence regarding how they are related. The aim of this study was to ...
    • Impact of different methods defining post-stroke neurocognitive disorder: The Nor-COAST study 

      Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Aam, Stina; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Lydersen, Stian; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Wyller, Torgeir Bruun; Fure, Brynjar; Thingstad, Pernille; Askim, Torunn; Beyer, Mona K.; Næss, Halvor; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Ellekjær, Hanne; Pendlebury, Sarah T.; Saltvedt, Ingvild (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020-03-16)
      Introduction Post‐stroke neurocognitive disorder (NCD) is common; prevalence varies between studies, partially related to lack of consensus on how to identify cases. The aim was to compare the prevalence of post‐stroke ...
    • Investigating novel biomarkers of immune activation and modulation in the context of sedentary behaviour: a multicentre prospective ischemic stroke cohort study 

      Alme, Katinka Nordheim; Askim, Torunn; Assmus, Jörg; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Naik, Mala; Næss, Halvor; Saltvedt, Ingvild; Ueland, Per-Magne; Ulvik, Arve; Knapskog, Anne-Brita (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background Sedentary behaviour is associated with disease, but the molecular mechanisms are not understood. Valid biomarkers with predictive and explanatory properties are required. Therefore, we have investigated traditional ...
    • Is long-bout sedentary behaviour associated with long-term glucose levels 3 months after acute ischaemic stroke? A prospective observational cohort study 

      Alme, Katinka Nordheim; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Næss, Halvor; Naik, Mala; Beyer, Mona K.; Ellekjær, Hanne; English, Coralie; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Kummeneje, Camilla S.; Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Saltvedt, Ingvild; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Tan, Xiang chun; Thingstad, Pernille; Askim, Torunn (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Background and purpose Sedentary behaviour is a risk factor for vascular disease and stroke patients are more sedentary than their age-matched peers. The association with glucose levels, as a potential mediator, is ...
    • Neopterin and kynurenic acid as predictors of stroke recurrence and mortality: a multicentre prospective cohort study on biomarkers of infammation measured three months after ischemic stroke 

      Alme, Katinka Nordheim; Ulvik, Arve; Askim, Torunn; Assmus, Jörg; Mollnes, Tom Eirik; Naik, Mala; Næss, Halvor; Saltvedt, Ingvild; Ueland, Per-Magne; Knapskog, Anne Brita (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background Chronic low-grade inflammation is associated with both ischemic stroke and sedentary behaviour. The aim of this study was to investigate the predictive abilities of biomarkers of inflammation and immune modulation ...
    • The Norwegian Cognitive impairment after stroke study (Nor-COAST): study protocol of a multicentre, prospective cohort study 

      Thingstad, Pernille; Askim, Torunn; Beyer, Mona K.; Bråthen, Geir; Ellekjær, Hanne; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Lydersen, Stian; Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Næss, Halvor; Pendlebury, Sarah; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Saltvedt, Ingvild (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018-11-26)
      Background: Early and late onset post-stroke cognitive impairment (PCI) contributes substantially to disability following stroke, and is a high priority within stroke research. The aetiology for PCI is complex and related ...
    • Pre-stroke cognitive impairment is associated with vascular imaging pathology: a prospective observational study 

      Schellhorn, Till; Zucknick, Manuela; Askim, Torunn; Munthe-Kaas, Ragnhild; Ihle-Hansen, Hege; Seljeseth, Yngve Müller; Knapskog, Anne Brita; Næss, Halvor; Ellekjær, Hanne; Thingstad, Pernille; Wyller, Torgeir Bruun; Saltvedt, Ingvild; Beyer, Mona Kristiansen (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Background Chronic brain pathology and pre-stroke cognitive impairment (PCI) is predictive of post-stroke dementia. The aim of the current study was to measure pre-stroke neurodegenerative and vascular disease burden found ...
    • Responsiveness of the Berg Balance Scale in patients early after stroke 

      Saso, Adam; Moe-Nilssen, Rolf; Gunnes, Mari; Askim, Torunn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)
      The Berg Balance Scale (BBS) has previously shown good measurement properties. However, its ability to detect important change in patients early after stroke is still unknown. The purpose of the present study was to determine ...
    • Vascular risk factor control and adherence to secondary preventive medication after ischaemic stroke
