The US National Library of Medicine and National Institutes of Health manage PubMed.gov which comprises of more than 29 million records, papers, reports for biomedical literature, including MEDLINE, life science and medical journals, articles, reviews, reports and books.
BioPortfolio aims to cross reference relevant information on published papers, clinical trials and news associated with selected topics - speciality.
For example view all recent relevant publications on Epigenetics and associated publications and clincial trials.
Pancreatic cancer is among the most lethal malignancies with a five-year survival of about 5%, and the only curative treatment is surgical resection. Denmark consists of five governmental regions and has four surgical centres. Our aim was to explore the regional and socio-economic differences in overall survival following a pancreatic cancer diagnosis in Denmark.
The aim of this study was to cross-culturally adapt the Western Ontario Rotator Cuff Index (WORC) into a Danish version (D-WORC) and evaluate its validity, reliability and responsiveness in patients undergoing surgery for arthroscopic subacromial decompression or rotator cuff repair.
In pregnant women, bacteriuria with group B streptococci (GBS) may be associated with a high degree of recto-vaginal GBS colonisation and therefore an increased risk of early-onset GBS disease. The aim of this study was to assess the performance of routine use of dipstick urine analysis during pregnancy for prediction of recto-vaginal GBS colonisation at the time of labour.
In this retrospective, register-based population study, we evaluated if anti-citrullinated protein antibodies (ACPA) is a better choice than immunoglobulin M rheumatoid factor (IgM RF) in primary care when rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is suspected, as it determines predictive values in real-life settings. Furthermore, the study described ordering patterns to investigate the benefit of repeated testing.
In 2006, the North Denmark Region implemented the electronic prehospital patient medical record (PPR), amPHI, in the region's prehospital emergency medical service. In 2015, a new nationwide version was implemented. Our aim was to investigate the completeness and correctness of registrations of vital sign data in the PPR after the initial introduction and after the implementation of the new PPR version.
Patients undergoing scoliosis management are exposed to repeated radiological imaging. Previous studies have shown an increase in incidence of cancer among these patients. The primary aim of this study was to evaluate the radiographic examinations and cumulative radiation dose to which scoliotic patients are exposed. A secondary aim was to compare in-house algorithms of scoliosis management and radiographic follow-up to international spine centres and current consensus literature.
The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Fatigue Self-assessment Scale (IBD-F) is a multidimensional, disease-specific questionnaire. Patients with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) took part in the development of the tool. The scale was developed in the UK and comprises 35 questions: five questions about the severity of fatigue and 30 questions about the impact of fatigue. The purpose of this study was to validate a Danish electronic version of the IBD-F in a Danish IBD population.
Mechanical restraint and other forms of coercion may be used under certain circumstances at psych-iatric wards. The use of coercion receives considerable focus, yet little is known about its diurnal distribution. We examined the initiation of mechanical restraint, sedative drug administration, physical retention, door locking and personal shielding by time of day and week.
Bariatric surgery offers effective obesity treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate the cost-effectiveness of bariatric surgery in Denmark from a third-party payer perspective in the mid- (ten years) and long-term (lifetime).
This PhD-thesis is based on animal studies and comprises three original papers and unpublished data. The studies were con-ducted during my employment as a research fellow at the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology, Herlev University Hospital, Denmark. New strategies for surgical reconstruction of pelvic organ pro-lapse (POP) are warranted. Traditional native tissue repair may be associated with poor long-term outcome and augmentation with permanent polypropylene meshes is associated with frequent and se...
The majority of persons with multiple sclerosis (MS) experience onset of MS between the ages of 20 and 40. Since two-thirds of the persons with MS are young women of childbearing age, parenthood is an essential issue during this period of life. The potential influence of parental MS on children arises from the varied symptoms of the chronic illness, which affect physical and cognitive abilities. MS disabilities and fatigue can restrict daily life and result in less energy for activities or job loss and thus...
In order to study the influence of disuse and aging on skeletal muscle homeostasis, different human models were employed. Effects of chronic disuse were investigated in elderly patients suffering from uni-lateral hip-osteoarthritis, whereas the effect of short-term disuse (4 and 14 days of unilateral lower limb immobilisation) was assessed in healthy young and old individuals. In summary, chronic muscle disuse in the elderly was associated with marked quantitative as well as qualitative neuromuscular impair...
