  1. 1. Asthma in school age prevalence, incidence and remission in relation to environmental determinants

    Författare :Martin Andersson; Eva Rönmark; Bertil Forsberg; Per Nafstad; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; asthma; wheeze; environment; prevalence; incidence; remission; vehicle traffic; sensitization; Occupational and Environmental Medicine; arbets- och miljömedicin;

    Sammanfattning : Background In the past half-century, the prevalence of asthma among children and adolescents has risen and asthma has become an important public health challenge in Sweden as well as in many other countries, necessitating further studies on this complex disease and its risk factor pattern. The studies included in this thesis aimed to investigate the clinical expression of childhood asthma over time, to describe the determinants of new-onset and remission of asthma, and to evaluate possible environmental risk factors in northern Sweden.

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundAsthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) are common obstructive airway diseases with a substantial burden in terms of morbidity, mortality and costs. Smoking is the single most important risk factor for COPD, and is associated with incident asthma. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background: Childhood asthma has increased worldwide, although recent studies report a prevalence plateau in some western countries.Aims: To investigate the prevalence of asthma and the associated risk factor patterns from ages 7-8 to 11-12 with special emphasis on the hereditary component, and further to study prevalence trends at age 7-8 from 1996 to 2006 and the possible determinants of these trends.

  4. 4. Epidemiological studies of asthma and allergic diseases in teenagers methodological aspects and tobacco use

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Författare :Linnea Hedman; Eva Rönmark; Bertil Forsberg; Maria Nordin; Amund Gulsvik; [2010]
    Nyckelord :epidemiology; asthma; allergic diseases; wheeze; agreement; smoking; snus; teenagers;

    Sammanfattning : Parental reports are often used in studies of asthma and allergic diseases in children. A change in respondent from parent to index subject usually occurs during adolescence. Little is known about the effects this change in method might have on the outcomes of a longitudinal study. LÄS MER

  5. 5. IgE sensitization against food allergens Natural history, relation to airway inflammation and asthma

    Detta är en avhandling från Umeå : Folkhälsa och klinisk medicin

    Författare :Antonios Patelis; Andrei Malinovschi; Eva Rönmark; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allergen components; extract-based; exhaled NO; airway hyperresponsiveness; blood eosinophil count; IgE sensitization; food hypersensitivity; food allergens; perennial allergens; natural history; markers of systemic inflammation; markers of local inflammation; Lungmedicin; Lung Medicine; Fysiologi; Physiology; Immunologi; Immunology;

    Sammanfattning : Background: According to recent studies in children, IgE sensitization not only against perennial allergens, but also against food allergens, is related to asthma risk and increased airway inflammation. During the last decade, a new technique for IgE determination based on allergen components has become available, but its use in epidemiological studies has been limited. LÄS MER
