• Intake of carbohydrates and SFA and risk of CHD in middle-age adults: The Hordaland Health Study (HUSK) 

      Haugsgjerd, Teresa Risan; Egeland, Grace M.; Nygård, Ottar; Igland, Jannicke; Sulo, Gerhard; Lysne, Vegard; Vinknes, Kathrine; Bjørnevik, Kjetil Lauvland; Tell, Grethe S. (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objective: Limiting SFA intake may minimise the risk of CHD. However, such reduction often leads to increased intake of carbohydrates. We aimed to evaluate associations and the interplay of carbohydrate and SFA intake on ...
    • The interplay between environmental risk factors for multiple sclerosis 

      Bjørnevik, Kjetil Lauvland (Doctoral thesis, 2017-04-28)
      Background: Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic demyelinating disease of the central nervous system whose etiology is unknown. While several genetic factors and environmental exposures, including low vitamin D, smoking, ...
    • Level of education and multiple sclerosis risk after adjustment for known risk factors: The EnvIMS study 

      Bjørnevik, Kjetil Lauvland; Riise, Trond; Cortese, Marianna; Holmøy, Trygve; Kampman, Margitta Theodora; Magalhaes, Sandra; Myhr, Kjell-Morten; Wolfson, Christina; Pugliatti, Maura (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015-05-26)
      Background: Several recent studies have found a higher risk of multiple sclerosis (MS) among people with a low level of education. This has been suggested to reflect an effect of smoking and lower vitamin D status in the ...
    • Neurofilament light chain predicts disease activity in relapsing-remitting MS 

      Varhaug, Kristin Nielsen; Barro, Christian; Bjørnevik, Kjetil Lauvland; Myhr, Kjell-Morten; Torkildsen, Øivind; Wergeland, Stig; Bindoff, Laurence; Kuhle, Jens; Vedeler, Christian A. (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2018)
      Objective: To investigate whether serum neurofilament light chain (NF-L) and chitinase 3-like 1 (CHI3L1) predict disease activity in relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS). Methods: A cohort of 85 patients with RRMS were followed ...
    • Timing of use of cod liver oil, a vitamin D source, and multiple sclerosis risk: The EnvIMS study. 

      Cortese, Marianna; Riise, Trond; Bjørnevik, Kjetil Lauvland; Holmøy, Trygve; Kampman, Margitta Theodora; Magalhaes, Sandra; Pugliatti, Maura; Wolfson, Christina; Myhr, Kjell-Morten (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2015)
      Background: Low vitamin D levels have been associated with an increased risk of multiple sclerosis (MS), although it remains unknown whether this relationship varies by age. Objective: The objective of this paper is to ...
