Total drug treatment and comorbidity in myasthenia gravis: a population-based cohort study
<p>Background and purpose: Comorbidity in myasthenia gravis (MG) is important for diagnosis, treatment and prognosis. Disease complexity was assessed by examining total drug treatment, immune therapy and comorbidity in a ...
Determining universal processes related to best outcome in emergency abdominal surgery: A multicentre, international, prospective cohort study
<p>Introduction: Emergency abdominal surgery outcomes represent an internationally important marker of healthcare quality and capacity. In this study, a novel approach to investigating global surgical outcomes is proposed, ...
An 18-Gene signature for vascular invasion is associated with aggressive features and reduced survival in breast cancer
<p>Aims: Vascular invasion by tumor cells is known to be important for cancer progression. By microarray and qPCR analyses, we earlier identified an 18-gene signature associated with vascular involvement in endometrial ...
Anti-depressive effectiveness of olanzapine, quetiapine, risperidone and ziprasidone: a pragmatic, randomized trial
(BioMed Central, 2011-08-31)
Background: Efficacy studies indicate anti-depressive effects of at least some second generation antipsychotics (SGAs). The Bergen Psychosis Project (BPP) is a 24-month, pragmatic, industry-independent, randomized, ...
Duodenal Chromogranin A Cell Density as a Biomarker for the Diagnosis of Irritable Bowel Syndrome
Background and Aim. Chromogranin A (CgA) is a common marker for endocrine cells. The density of duodenal CgA cells is reduced in patients with irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). Methods. The present study was undertaken to ...

Effekt av FODMAP-redusert kost på symptomer, livskvalitet og gassproduksjon hos pasienter med funksjonell dyspepsi
(The University of Bergen, 2014-05-15)
<p>Rationale: FODMAPs (fermentable oligo-, di-, monosaccharides and polyols) is a group of carbohydrates poorly absorbed in the small intestine - some will therefore serve as substrate for colonic fermentation. Studies ...
Inverse correlation between PDGFC expression and lymphocyte infiltration in human papillary thyroid carcinoma
(BioMed Central, 2009-12-08)
<p>Background: Members of the PDGF family have been suggested as potential biomarkers for papillary thyroid carcinomas (PTC). However, it is known that both expression and stimulatory effect of PDGF ligands can be affected ...
Longevity of B-cell and T-cell responses after live attenuated influenza vaccination in children
(Oxford University Press, 2015-05-15)
<p>Background. The live attenuated influenza vaccine (LAIV) is the preferred vaccine for children, but the mechanisms behind protective immune responses are unclear, and the duration of immunity remains to be elucidated. ...
