Association between TLR9 rs5743836 polymorphism and risk of recurrent venous thromboembolism

Recent gene knockout studies on mice have shown the role of toll-like receptor 9 (TLR9) in resolution of venous thromboembolism (VTE) through sterile inflammation. However, the role of a putative functional TLR9 polymorphism (rs5743836) in risk assessment of VTE recurrence remains unknown. The aim of our study was to investigate the TLR9 rs5743836 polymorphism in VTE patients and ...

Indication for pharmacological treatment is often lacking: a cross-sectional study on the quality of drug therapy among the elderly

Background Although the elderly have a substantially higher drug use than younger patients, even after adjustment for multimorbidity, there is limited knowledge about the elderly’s indication for treatment. It is essential for elderly patients to have a well-planned drug therapy. The first step towards a correct and safe drug therapy is to ensure that the patient’s drugs have an ...

Autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder among individuals with a family history of alcohol use disorders

Recent studies suggest de novo mutations may involve the pathogenesis of autism and attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Based on the evidence that excessive alcohol consumption may be associated with an increased rate of de novo mutations in germ cells (sperms or eggs), we examine here whether the risks of autism and ADHD are increased among individuals with a family ...

Can gender difference in prescription drug use be explained by gender-related morbidity?: a study on a Swedish population during 2006

Background It has been reported that there is a difference in drug prescription between males and females. Even after adjustment for multi-morbidity, females tend to use more prescription drugs compared to males. In this study, we wanted to analyse whether the gender difference in drug treatment could be explained by gender-related morbidity. Methods Data was collected on all ...

Drugs prescribed by general practitioners according to age, gender and socioeconomic status after adjustment for multimorbidity level

Background Age, gender and socioeconomic status have been shown to be associated with the use of prescription drugs, even after adjustment for multimorbidity. General practitioners have a holistic and patient-centred perspective and our hypothesis is that this may reflect on the prescription of drugs. In Sweden the patient may seek secondary care without a letter of referral and ...

Familial Risks of Kidney Failure in Sweden: A Nationwide Family Study

Background The value of family history as a risk factor for kidney failure has not been determined in a nationwide setting. Aim This nationwide family study aimed to determine familial risks for kidney failure in Sweden. Methods The Swedish multi-generation register on 0–78-year-old subjects were linked to the Swedish patient register and the Cause of death register for 1987–2010. ...

Immigrant enclaves and risk of diabetes: a prospective study

Background The diversity of the Swedish population has increased substantially over the past three decades. The aim of this study was to assess whether living in an ethnic enclave is associated with risk of diabetes mellitus (DM) among first and second-generation immigrants and native Swedes. Methods Cumulative incidence of DM in three urban municipalities was assessed from ...

Digested wheat gluten inhibits binding between leptin and its receptor

Background Leptin resistance is considered a primary risk factor for obesity. It has been hypothesized that dietary cereal grain protein could cause leptin resistance by preventing leptin from binding to its receptor. Non-degraded dietary wheat protein has been found in human serum at a mean level of 41 ng/mL. Here, we report our findings from testing whether enzymatically digested ...

Incidence of hereditary amyloidosis and autoinflammatory diseases in Sweden: endemic and imported diseases

Background Amyloidoses are a heterogeneous group of progressive diseases caused by tissue deposition of misfolded proteins. According to the International Classification of Diseases, hereditary amyloidosis is divided into neuropathic and non-neuropathic forms. In Sweden, neuropathic heredofamilial amyloidosis has been identified as familial amyloidotic polyneuropathy (FAP), a fatal ...

Determination of 14 Circulating microRNAs in Swedes and Iraqis with and without Diabetes Mellitus Type 2

Background Recent reports suggest that immigrants from Middle Eastern countries are a high-risk group for type 2 diabetes (T2D) compared with Swedes, and that the pathogenesis of T2D may be ethnicity-specific. Deregulation of microRNA (miRNA) expression has been demonstrated to be associated with T2D but ethnic differences in miRNA have not been investigated. The aim of this study ...
