    Sammanfattning : In the last decades our knowledge concerning cardiovascular risk factors has grown rapidly through results from longitudinal studies. However, despite new treatment, in Western countries coronary heart disease remains the leading cause of death and stroke is still the leading cause of severe disability. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Population modeling using harpacticoid copepods : Bridging the gap between individual-level effects and protection goals of environmental risk assessment

    Författare :Elin Lundström Belleza; Magnus Breitholtz; Annemette Palmqvist; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Population modeling; Eco toxicity tests; Environmental risk assessment; Harpacticoid copepods; Applied Environmental Science; tillämpad miljövetenskap;

    Sammanfattning : To protect the environment from contaminants, environmental risk assessment (ERA) evaluates the risk of adverse effects to populations, communities and ecosystems. Environmental management decisions rely on ERAs, which commonly are based on a few endpoints at the individual organism level. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Biomarkers and risk of intracerebral hemorrhage : population-based studies in northern Sweden

    Författare :Kristina Johansson; Marcus Lind; Lars Johansson; Jan-Håkan Jansson; Arne Lindgren; Umeå universitet; []

    Sammanfattning : BackgroundIntracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is a disease associated with a high morbidity and mortality and treatment options for the condition are limited. Even though an ICH event usually comes as a surprise to the affected individual, pathogenetic processes often have occurred before the sudden ICH event and may have preceded disease onset by years.

    Sammanfattning : Kiruna, a Swedish community situated 300 km north of the Arctic Circle, has a very high mortality in ischemic heart disease (IHD). Acase-control study was undertaken to find out if the risk factors for IHD or their impact differed from those in other populations. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Spatiotemporal prediction of arbovirus outbreak risk : the role of weather and population mobility
