Kinesiophobia and its relation to pain characteristics and cognitive affective variables in older adults with chronic pain

Background The contribution of kinesiophobia (fear of movement) to the pain experience among older adults has been poorly evaluated. The aim of this study was to study prevalence at baseline, development over a 12-month period and cognitive-affective variables of kinesiophobia in a population-based sample of older adults with chronic pain. Methods The study included 433 older...

Impact of pain characteristics and fear-avoidance beliefs on physical activity levels among older adults with chronic pain: a population-based, longitudinal study

Background To explore the level of physical activity in a population based sample of older adults; to analyze the influence of pain characteristics and fear-avoidance beliefs as predictors of physical activity among older adults reporting chronic pain. Methods Demographics, pain characteristics (duration, intensity), physical activity, kinesiophobia (excessive fear of movement...

Stress resilience and subsequent risk of type 2 diabetes in 1.5 million young men

Aims/hypothesis Psychosocial stress in adulthood is associated with a higher risk of type 2 diabetes, possibly mediated by behavioural and physiological factors. However, it is unknown whether low stress resilience earlier in life is related to subsequent development of type 2 diabetes. We examined whether low stress resilience in late adolescence is associated with an increased...

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...

Circulating microRNA-144-5p is associated with depressive disorders

Background Depressive/anxiety disorders are the most common types of mental illnesses in the world. The present study was the first to explore the association between plasma microRNAs (miRNAs) and depression/anxiety in primary care patients. Results In total, 169 patients (aged 20–64 years) from 16 primary health centers were enrolled in the present study. The healthy controls...

Causes of death in patients with extranodal cancer of unknown primary: searching for the primary site

Background Cancer of unknown primary (CUP) is a fatal cancer, accounting for 3–5% of all diagnosed cancers. Finding the primary site is important for therapeutic choices and we believe that the organ which is designated as the cause of death may give clues about the primary site. Methods A total of 20,570 patients with CUP were identified from the Swedish Family-Cancer Database...

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...

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...

Neighbourhood Environment and Stroke: A Follow-Up Study in Sweden

Background In recent years, research on the association between physical environments and cardiovascular disease outcomes has gained momentum with growing attention being paid to Geographic Information Systems (GIS). This nationwide study is the first to examine the effect of neighbourhood physical environments on individual-level stroke, using GIS-based measures of neighbourhood...

Comparison of survival of patients with metastases from known versus unknown primaries: survival in metastatic cancer

Background Cancer of unknown primary site (CUP) is considered an aggressive metastatic disease but whether the prognosis differs from metastatic cancers of known primary site is not known. Such data may give insight into the biology of CUP and the metastatic process in general. Methods 6,745 cancer patients, with primary metastatic cancer at diagnosis, were identified from the...

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...

Incidence and survival in non-hereditary amyloidosis in Sweden

Background Amyloidosis is a heterogeneous disease caused by deposition of amyloid fibrils in organs and thereby interfering with physiological functions. Hardly any incidence data are available and most survival data are limited to specialist clinics. Methods Amyloidosis patients were identified from the Swedish Hospital Discharge and Outpatients Registers from years 2001 through...
