Impact of neighborhood resources on cardiovascular disease: a nationwide six-year follow-up

Background Living in a socially deprived neighborhood is associated with lifestyle risk factors, e.g., smoking, physical inactivity and unhealthy diet, as well as an increased risk of cardiovascular disease, i.e., coronary heart disease and stroke. The aim was to study whether the odds of cardiovascular disease vary with the neighbourhood availability of potentially health-damaging ...

Strategy decision of business interruption insurance and emergency supply strategy based on supply disruptions

Purpose: Recent years have witness the pervasive supply disruptions and their impacts on supply chain performance. It is significant for enterprises to adopt comprehensive measures to cope with supply disruptions. The purpose of this study is to investigate how BI insurance make up the shortage of emergency supply and affect the expected profit of enterprises. Design/methodology: ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Risk of subsequent ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke in patients hospitalized for immune-mediated diseases: a nationwide follow-up study from Sweden

BackgroundCertain immune-mediated diseases (IMDs) have been associated with increased risk for cardiovascular disorders. The aim of the present study was to examine whether there is an association between 32 different IMDs and first hospitalization for ischemic or hemorrhagic stroke.MethodsAll individuals in Sweden hospitalized with a main diagnosis of IMD (without previous or ...

Risk of Subsequent Coronary Heart Disease in Patients Hospitalized for Immune-Mediated Diseases: A Nationwide Follow-Up Study from Sweden

Background Certain immune-mediated diseases (IMDs), such as rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematosus, have been linked to cardiovascular disorders. We examined whether there is an association between 32 different IMDs and risk of subsequent hospitalization for coronary heart disease (CHD) related to coronary atherosclerosis in a nationwide follow up study in Sweden. ...

Layered Fe(III) doped TiO2 thin-film electrodes for the photoelectrocatalytic oxidation of glucose and potassium hydrogen phthalate

Four types of TiO2 thin-film electrodes were fabricated from TiO2 and Fe(III) doped TiO2 sols using a layer-by-layer dip-coating technique. Electrodes fabricated were TF (pure TiO2 surface, Fe(III)-TiO2 bottom layer), FT (Fe(III)-TiO2 surface, pure TiO2 bottom layer), TT (both layers pure TiO2) and FF (both layers Fe(III)-TiO2). The photoelectrochemical behavior of these electrodes ...
