    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Sammanfattning : The nested case-control design is widely used in epidemiology for its efficiency, as it combines the advantages of both cohort and case-control designs. This design is an extension of the matched case-control design, where the matching variable is the time of occurrence of the outcome. LÄS MER

    Sammanfattning : Background. Multiple sclerosis (MS) is an inflammatory and degenerative disease of the central nervous system that typically debuts around age 30. About 2.3 million people are affected in the world today, and besides trauma it is the most common cause of neurological disability among young adults in the western world. LÄS MER
