      Life course data on obesity may enrich the quality of epidemiologic studies analysing health consequences of obesity. However, achieving such data may require substantial resources. We investigated the use of body silhouettes ...
    • Describing the status of reproductive ageing simply and precisely: A reproductive ageing score based on three questions and validated with hormone levels 

      Triebner, Kai; Johannessen, Ane; Svanes, Cecilie; Leynaert, Bénédicte; Benediktsdóttir, Bryndís; Demoly, Pascal; Dharmage, Shyamali C.; Franklin, Karl A.; Heinrich, Joachim; Holm, Mathias; Jarvis, Deborah; Lindberg, Eva; Moratalla, Jesús Martínez; Agirre, Nerea Muniozguren; Sánchez-Ramos, José Luis; Schlünssen, Vivi; Skulstad, Svein Magne; Hustad, Steinar; Rodríguez, Francisco J.; Gomez Real, Francisco (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Objective Most women live to experience menopause and will spend 4–8 years transitioning from fertile age to full menstrual stop. Biologically, reproductive ageing is a continuous process, but by convention, it is defined ...
    • Epigenome-wide association of father's smoking with offspring DNA methylation: a hypothesis-generating study 

      Mørkve Knudsen, G.T.; Rezwan, FI; Johannessen, Ane; Skulstad, Svein Magne; Bertelsen, Randi Jacobsen; Gomez Real, Francisco; Krauss-Etschmann, Susanne; Patil, Viswanath; Jarvis, Deborah; Arshad, SH; Holloway, John W; Svanes, Cecilie (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Epidemiological studies suggest that father’s smoking might influence their future children’s health, but few studies have addressed whether paternal line effects might be related to altered DNA methylation patterns in the ...
    • The Exposome Approach in Allergies and Lung Diseases: Is It Time to Define a Preconception Exposome? 

      López Cervantes, Juan Pablo; Lønnebotn, Marianne; Jögi, Nils Oskar; Calciano, Lucia; Kuiper, Ingrid Nordeide; Darby, Matthew G; Dharmage, Shyamali Chandrika; Real, Francisco Gomez; Hammer, Barbara; Bertelsen, Randi Jacobsen; Johannessen, Ane; Würtz, Anne Mette Lund; Knudsen, Gerd Toril Mørkve; Koplin, Jennifer; Pape, Kathrine; Skulstad, Svein Magne; Timm, Signe; Tjalvin, Gro; Krauss-Etschmann, Susanne; Accordini, Simone; Schlünssen, Vivi; Kirkeleit, Jorunn; Svanes, Cecilie (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Emerging research suggests environmental exposures before conception may adversely affect allergies and lung diseases in future generations. Most studies are limited as they have focused on single exposures, not considering ...
    • Exposures during the prepuberty period and future offspring's health: evidence from human cohort studies 

      Svanes, Cecilie; Bertelsen, Randi Jacobsen; Accordini, Simone; Holloway, John W.; Juliusson, Pétur Benedikt; Boateng, Eistine; Krauss-Etchmann, Susanne; Schlünssen, Vivi; Real, Francisco Gomez; Skulstad, Svein Magne (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2021)
      Emerging evidence suggests that exposures in prepuberty, particularly in fathers-to-be, may impact the phenotype of future offspring. Analyses of the RHINESSA cohort find that offspring of father’s exposed to tobacco smoking ...
    • Metformin exposure, maternal PCOS status and fetal venous liver circulation: A randomized, placebo-controlled study 

      Grindheim, Sindre; Ebbing, Cathrine; Karlsen, Henriette Odland; Skulstad, Svein Magne; Real, Francisco Gomez; Lønnebotn, Marianne; Løvvik, Tone Shetelig; Vanky, Eszter; Kessler, Jørg (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2022-01-28)
      Background: Metformin is prescribed to women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) to prevent pregnancy complications. Children exposed to metformin vs. placebo in utero, have increased head circumference at birth and are ...
    • Parents’ smoking onset before conception as related to body mass index and fat mass in adult offspring: Findings from the RHINESSA generation study 

      Knudsen, Gerd Toril Mørkve; Dharmage, Shyamali C.; Janson, Christer; Abramson, Michael J.; Benediktsdóttir, Bryndís; Malinovschi, Andrei; Skulstad, Svein Magne; Bertelsen, Randi Jacobsen; Real, Francisco Gomez; Schlünssen, Vivi; Jögi, Nils Oskar; Sánchez-Ramos, José Luis; Holm, Mathias; Garcia-Aymerich, Judith; Forsberg, Bertil; Svanes, Cecilie; Johannessen, Ane (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2020)
      Emerging evidence suggests that parents’ preconception exposures may influence offspring health. We aimed to investigate maternal and paternal smoking onset in specific time windows in relation to offspring body mass index ...
    • Umbilical vein constriction at the abdominal wall An ultrasound study in low risk pregnancies 

      Skulstad, Svein Magne (Doctoral thesis, 2005-05-18)
      The umbilical vein is the only vessel supplying the fetus with blood supplying oxygen and nutrients from the placenta. Case reports indicate that the fetal end of the umbilical cord is susceptible to mechanical complications. ...
