In order to develop effective preventive strategies, knowledge of trends in socioeconomic and geographical differences in risk factor levels is important. The objective of this study was to examine social and spatial patterns of obesity diffusion in a Norwegian population during three decades. Data on adults aged 30-69 years from three cross-sectional health surveys eleven years apart in the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study, Norway, HUNT1 (1984-1986), HUNT2 (1995-1997) and HUNT3 (2006-2008) were utilized. Body mass index (BMI) was used as a measure of obesity. Height and weight were measured clinically. Age standardized prevalences, absolute prevalence differences and ratios, prevalence odds ratios for BMI and the Relative Index of Inequality (RII) were calculated. Multilevel statistical models were fitted for analysing geographical patterns. The prevalence of obesity was systematically higher in groups with lower socio-economic status and increased successively in all groups in the population during the
A new survey shows that only around 30 percent of Norwegian men use condoms when having casual sex, reports the state health agency Folkehelseinstitutt. That ranks among the worst in Europe, and the consequences are also reflected in statistics showing a huge increase in cases of sexually transmitted diseases.. Norwegian men are the worst in Europe at using condoms, and only condoms can protect against diseases, Kari Haugen, a nurse at the University of Stavanger, told NRK.. From her office at the universitys student union she points to research showing that three of four Norwegians have had unprotected sex and six out of 10 young Norwegian men failed to use a condom the last time they had sex with a new partner.. At the same time, health care officials are seeing a sharp rise in cases of syphillis, for example, up 500 percent between 2005 and 2015. Cases of gonorrhea doubled during the same time period, while there also were increases in cases of chronic hepatitis B and clamydia over the ...
The high intake of added sugar is one of the most important health-related concerns in the diet of children and adolescents.. To reduce the intake of added sugar, beverages with added sweeteners may be considered as a favorable alternative to sugar-containing products.. It has therefore been questioned whether the tax on drinks with added sweeteners should be decreased.. The Norwegian Food Safety Authority has been commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Care Services to assess whether the consumption of drinks with added sweeteners may pose a health risk to the population.. To investigate this issue, it is essential to get new and updated knowledge of the intake levels of sweeteners in the Norwegian population.. In order to provide a basis for answering the question asked by the Ministry, the Norwegian Food Safety Authority requested the Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM) to calculate the intake of sweeteners in the Norwegian population from consumption of beverages, and ...

Materials for investigation were collected during research cruises in October-November in the coastal areas of western and northern Norway, and in December 1978 - May 1979 in the northern North Sea and south of the Faroes (Table l), During the autumn of 1978 T.sagittatus mainly migrated to the Andfjord area in North Norway where a fishery took place in October-December. Off northern Norway the mean mantle length of the different samples was 33-34 cm, off western Norway 27-30 cm. In the northern North Sea most squid taken during December-April measured 18-28 cm, a few 13-17 cm and 30-36 cm. Those taken in May had a mean length of 30 cm. The total edible weight was on an average 74% of the total weight (mantle 50%, arms and tentacles, 24%) . Off northern Norway the liver weight constituted 12,6% (6-16) of the total weight, off western Norway 10% (4-13), south of the Faroes, 7.1% (3-13) . Males are easily distinguished macroscopically by the condition of the skin, becoming ragged and slimy very ...

The Norwegian Institute of Public Health monitors the health of the population and works to improve general health by focusing on health promotion and the prevention of disease.
The main finding in this population-based study from central Norway was a high prevalence of PsA of 0.67%. This is higher than what has previously been reported in two previous studies from Norway (0.2%)9 ,15 as well as in reports from other parts of the world (,0.01-0.42%).13 ,14 The gender and age distribution in our study, however, was analogous to the Norwegian study by Madland and colleagues from the western part of Norway.9 The prevalence of PsA in our study is more comparable with the prevalence of RA in Norway which, in hospital-based studies, has been reported to be approximately 0.5%.18 ,19 Of note, a more equal prevalence of PsA and RA has also been suggested by some investigators assessing other populations.3 ,13. The majority (96.2%) of the PsA patients in this study had involvement of peripheral joints while only 3.8% had exclusive involvement of the spine. These numbers are in the same range as reported by Madland and colleagues.9 However, in the HUNT study, as many as 27.2% with ...
Background: A previous study has shown that variations in threshold and intensity (lipid goal attainment) of statins for primary prevention contribute to regional differences in overall consumption of statins in Norway. Our objective was to explore how differences in prevalences of use, dosing characteristics, choice of statin and continuity of therapy in individual patients adds new information to previous results. Methods: Data were retrieved from The Norwegian Prescription Database. We included individuals from counties with high, average, and low statin consumption, who had at least one statin prescription dispensed during 2004 (N = 40 143). 1-year prevalence, prescribed daily dose (PDD), statin of choice, and continuity of therapy assessed by mean number of tablets per day. Results: The high-consumption county had higher prevalence of statin use in all age groups. Atorvastatin and simvastatin were dispensed in 79-87% of all statin users, and the proportion was significantly higher in the ...
Background: While BRCA mutation carriers possess a 20-40% lifetime risk of developing ovarian cancer, knowledge about genetic modifying factors influencing the phenotypic expression remains obscure. We explored the distribution of the MDM2 polymorphisms SNP309T>G and the recently discovered SNP285G>C in Norwegian patients with BRCA related ovarian cancer.. G and the recently discovered SNP285G>C in Norwegian patients with BRCA related ovarian cancer.. C in Norwegian patients with BRCA related ovarian cancer.. Methods: 221 BRCA related ovarian cancer cases (BRCA1; n = 161 and BRCA2; n = 60) were tested for the MDM2 polymorphisms. Results were compared to healthy controls (n = 2,465).. Results: The SNP309G allele was associated with elevated OR for ovarian cancer in BRCA1 mutation carriers (SNP309TG: OR 1.53; CI 1.07-2.19; p = 0.020; SNP309GG: OR 1.92; CI 1.19-3.10; p = 0.009; SNP309TG+GG combined: OR 1.61; CI 1.15-2.27; p = 0.005). In contrast, the SNP285C allele reduced risk of BRCA1 related ...

OBJECTIVE To investigate the association of vitamin D status with all-cause mortality in a Norwegian population and the potential influences of existing chronic diseases on the association. DESIGN A population-based prospective cohort study. SETTING Nord-Trøndelag County, Norway. PARTICIPANTS A random sample (n=6613) of adults aged 20 years or older in a cohort. METHODS Serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25(OH)D) levels were measured in blood samples collected at baseline (n=6377). Mortality was ascertained from the Norwegian National Registry. Cox regression models were applied to estimate the HRs with 95% CIs for all-cause mortality in association with serum 25(OH)D levels after adjustment for a wide spectrum of confounding factors as well as chronic diseases at baseline. RESULTS The median follow-up time was 18.5 years, during which 1539 subjects died. The HRs for all-cause mortality associated with the first quartile level of 25(OH)D (|34.5 nmol/L) as compared with the fourth quartile (≥58.1

The association between parity and CVD mortality was analyzed by estimating discrete-time hazard models for women and men aged 40-80 in 1975-2015. Register data covering the entire Norwegian population were used, and the models included a larger number of relevant sociodemographic control variables than in many previous studies. To analyze the relationship between parity and seven CVD risk factors, logistic models including the same variables as the mortality models were estimated from the CONOR collection of health surveys, linked to the register data ...

AIM: To describe cardiorespiratory fitness and body mass index (BMI) values in a representative population of 9-year-old Norwegian children in two rural communities and compare present values with previous findings. METHODS: Two hundred and fifty-nine 9-year-old children were invited, and 256 participated in this study. Maximal oxygen uptake was directly measured during a continuous progressive treadmill protocol. Body mass and height were also measured. RESULTS: The mean +/- SD relative maximal oxygen uptake was 52.8 +/- 6.5 for boys and 46.9 +/- 7.2 mL/kg/min for girls. Eight percent of the boys and 16.8% of the girls were classified as overweight, and 1.6% of the boys and 6.9% of the girls as obese. Mean age, body mass, height and Ponderal index were not significantly different between sexes. Girls had a higher BMI than boys (p = 0.05). CONCLUSION: Compared to earlier Norwegian studies, childrens BMI values seem to have increased substantially. This increase is most pronounced in girls. When ...
Background: The municipalities are responsible for the emergency primary health care services in Norway. These services include casualty clinics, primary doctors on-call and local emergency medical communication centres (LEMC). The National centre for emergency primary health care has initiated an enterprise called The Watchtowers, comprising emergency primary health care districts, to provide routine information (patients way of contact, level of urgency and first action taken by the out-of-hours services) over several years based on a minimal dataset. This will enable monitoring, evaluation and comparison of the respective activities in the emergency primary health care services. The aim of this study was to assess incidence of emergency contacts (potential lifethreatening situations, red responses) to the emergency primary health care service. Methods: A representative sample of Norwegian emergency primary health care districts, The Watchtowers recorded all contacts and first action ...
The importance of healthy eating in adolescence is well established. The present study examined possible effects of the free Norwegian School Fruit Scheme (NSFS), changes in dietary habits between 1995 and 2008, and whether secular changes in dietary habits differed among schools who implemented the NSFS during September 2007. We used data from the Young-HUNT1 survey conducted from 1995 to 1997 and the Young-HUNT3 survey conducted from 2006 to 2008, which are part of the Nord-Trøndelag Health Study (HUNT), a longitudinal population health study. To evaluate the NSFS, the date Young-HUNT3 participants answered the questionnaire was used to identify affiliation to the intervention group (post-September 2007, n = 1892) or control group (pre-September 2007, n = 2855). To explore dietary habits over time, adolescents attending the same schools in Young-HUNT1 (n = 4137) and Young-HUNT3 (n = 4113) were included. Further, we investigated secular changes in dietary habits according to school type (intervention

The majority of control subjects (n = 1,015) were women with a negative mammogram from the Tromsø Mammography and Breast Cancer Study conducted in 2001 and 2002. About 70% of the women, 55 to 71 years of age, residing in the municipality of Tromsø in Norway and attending the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program at the University Hospital of North Norway agreed to participate (19). The study was approved by the National Data Inspection Board and the Regional Committee for Medical Research Ethics. In addition, we included healthy woman (n = 109), 55 to 72 years of age, participating in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Program in Bergen in 1999, with two negative mammogram during a 2-year period (20). From this latter group, women with p.o. hormone replacement therapy or history of diabetes or other endocrine disorders were excluded. The mean (range) ages for cases (n = 731) and controls (n = 1,124) in the Norwegian study were 56 (26-93) and 62 (55-72) years, respectively.. Polish ...
Currently Norway does not recommend universal varicella vaccination for healthy children. This study assessed susceptibility to varicella-zoster virus (VZV) in the Norwegian population for the first time. A national convenience sample of residual sera was tested for anti-VZV IgG by ELISA. We estimated age-specific seropositivity to VZV, controlling for sex and geographical distribution. We assessed differences between the proportions using the chi-square test and multivariable logistic regression. Seroprevalence data were compared to the varicella and herpes zoster-associated consultation rates in patients attending primary healthcare. Although 73.2 % (n = 1,540) of all samples were positive for VZV, only 11.2 % of samples collected from 1-year-olds were seropositive. There was a sharp increase in the proportion of seropositive in 3- and 5-year-olds (40.2 % and 65.4 %, respectively). By the school entry age of 6 years, 69.8 % of children were seropositive. The age-specific annual consultation rate for

The MDM2 oncogene is amplified in many human cancers and high expression levels are considered to cause tumour growth. In the general population, there are different polymorphisms in the promoter of this gene and these are thought to influence the levels of MDM2 expression and thereby, potentially cancer risk. We have analysed several MDM2 polymorphisms in large samples of the Norwegian population and found them to influence cancer risk. In particular, we have found one polymorphism (SNP285) to affect binding both Sp1 and estrogen receptor and to reduces the risk of female cancers (breast- and ovarian cancer).. ...
Y-chromosomal variation at five biallelic markers (Tat, YAP, 12f2, SRY(10831) and 92R7) and nine multiallelic short tandem repeat (STR) loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385I/II and DYS388) in a Norwegian population sample are presented. The material consists of 1766 unrelated males of Norwegian origin. The geographical distribution of the population sample reflects fairly well the population distribution around the year 1942, which is the median birth year of the index persons. Seven hundred and twenty-one different Y-STR haplotypes but 726 different lineages (Y-STRs plus biallelic markers) were encountered. We observed six known (P*(xR1a), BR(xDE, J, N3, P), R1a, N3, DE, J), and one previously undescribed haplogroup (probably a subgroup within haplogroup P*(xR1a)). Four of the haplogroups (P*(xR1a), BR(xDE, J, N3, P), R1a and N3) represented about 98% of the population sample. The analysis of population pairwise differences indicates that the Norwegian ...
Background: Recent studies suggest that lactation has long-term effects on risk for cardiovascular disease in women, but the effects on cardiovascular mortality are less well known. Method: In a Norwegian population-based prospective cohort study, we studied the association of lifetime duration of lactation with cardiovascular mortality in 21,889 women aged 30 to 85 years who attended the second Nord-Trøndelag Health Survey (HUNT2) in 1995-1997. The cohort was followed for mortality through 2010 by a linkage with the Cause of Death Registry. Adjusted hazard ratios (HR) for death from all causes and cardiovascular disease were calculated using Cox regression. Results: During follow-up, 1,246 women died from cardiovascular disease. Parous women younger than 65 years who had never lactated had a higher cardiovascular mortality than the reference group of women who had lactated 24 months or more (HR 2.77, 95% confidence interval [CI]: 1.28, 5.99). There was some evidence of a U-shaped association, ...
Cross-sectional surveys of Norwegian populations indicate that 14-17 per cent of the children below the age of 15 years have had an allergic disease.

Note: (4005+2T->C)We screened 27 pediatric CF-patients from Western Norway for CFTR mutations by SSCP followed by direct sequencing. In three unrelated patients (all with another known CF-allele) we identified the same shift in exon 20. The PCR primers were 20a and 20B. The mutation causes loss of a natural HphI restriction site. Wild type: 473 bp in three fragments: 70, 137 and 266 bp. Mutated Allele: two fragments: 70 and 403 bp. Next to delF508, this mutation is the most commonly encountered in our CF population. This Bergen mutation was also commonly occurring in Oslo, but it was not found in Copenhagen (personal communications from Kritin Eiklid and Marianne Schwartz). In Norway, DF508 constitutes only about 60% of the CF-mutations (Eiklid et al Clin Genet 1993;44:12-14), in accordance with similar observations in Sweden (Acta Paediatr 1993:82:609). In Western Norway, delF508 is less prevalent than the Norwegian mean (around 50%, unpublished). In addition to delF508, we routinely screen our ...
These are the main conclusions in a scientific opinion from The Norwegian Scientific Committee for Food Safety (VKM), conducted at the request of the Norwegian Food Safety Authority (Mattilsynet).. Based on the premises described in the scientific opinion, previous international and national risk assessments, and published literature, the other conclusions drawn by VKM are:. - The critical adverse health effect of excess intake of vitamin A is teratogenicity. This effect is the basis for the tolerable upper intake level (UL) of 3000 µg RE/day.. - The most important source of vitamin A in the Norwegian population is diet, followed by food supplements and then cosmetics.. - Topical application of cosmetic products, as estimated in the standard scenarios (0.05% in body lotions and 0.3% in face and hand cream), increases the total exposure to vitamin A (retinol and retinyl esters) in all age groups.. The estimated contribution of retinol and retinyl esters from cosmetics is most prominent for ...
Singleton babies born after assisted fertilisation are at higher risk of low birth weight, preterm delivery, and perinatal death than spontaneously conceived ones⇑. But a new study suggests that this is mainly the result of factors associated with infertility rather than the technology itself.. A Norwegian population based cohort study, which compared perinatal outcomes in more than 1 200 000 singletons born as a result of spontaneous conception and more than 8000 singletons born after assisted conception, found that those born after assisted conception were lighter at birth (difference 25 g, 95% CI 14 to 35), had shorter duration of gestation (2.0 days, 1.6 to 2.3), and had an increased risk of perinatal death (odds ratio 1.31, 1.05 to 1.65) and being small for gestational age (1.26, 1.10 to 1.44).. However, when the researchers compared babies born to 2546 women who, in consecutive pregnancies, gave birth to a singleton after assisted conception and after spontaneous conception, they found ...

Lower attendance rates in immigrant versus non-immigrant women in the Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Programme. Journal of Medical Screening. ISSN 0969-1413. . doi: 10.1177/0969141317733771 Show summary Objective The Norwegian Breast Cancer Screening Programme invites women aged 50-69 to biennial mammographic screening. Although 84% of invited women have attended at least once, attendance rates vary across the country. We investigated attendance rates among various immigrant groups compared with non-immigrants in the programme. Methods There were 4,053,691 invitations sent to 885,979 women between 1996 and 2015. Using individual level population-based data from the Cancer Registry and Statistics Norway, we examined percent attendance and calculated incidence rate ratios, comparing immigrants with non-immigrants, using Poisson regression, following womens first invitation to the programme and ...
Among the Norwegian population working full time, five out of ten are active members in at least one organisation, compared with three out of ten of unemployed or disabled persons. The employed also have better social networks and higher inter-human trust than the unemployed and disabled.

His Master project with Nils LH was completed in June 2015, with thesis title The c-Loss Function: Balancing Total and Individual Risk in the Simultaneous Estimation of Poisson Means. It concerns simultaneous estimation of an ensemble of Poisson parameters, using different loss functions, where certain estimation strategies uniformly dominate the maximum likelihood procedure. He also works with empirical Bayes methods, yielding estimators that nonparametrically smooth towards e.g. given Poisson regression models. Emil holds a previous Masters degree in political science, with thesis title Bayesian Forecasting of Election Results in Multiparty Systems. His political forecasting work put him in the news, and in several television programmes he was educating the Norwegian population on the ins and outs of the US presidential election processes when Trump won.

Our data support the conclusion that smaller worker brood cell size can significantly contribute to the overall reduced reproductive success of V. destructor mites in susceptible colonies and may contribute to lower infestation rates; however, this effect was not significant in surviving colonies known to possess cell recapping as a mite-surviving trait (Oddie et al. 2018). The effect of cell size may be masked by these traits in surviving colonies, or else it is not present. Regardless, a small cell size does not appear to work in tandem with mite resistance traits favored by natural selection in the surviving Norwegian population.. Cell size differences were comparable between surviving and susceptible test colonies and there was an observable distinction between large and small cell size foundation; however, foundation size did not yield significant differences in mite fecundity among surviving or susceptible bees. This is likely due to the fact that some frames built up from small cell ...
Rising workload in general practice has been a recent cause for concern in several countries; this is also the case in Norway. Long working hours and heavy workload seem to affect recruitment and retention of regular general practitioners (RGPs). We investigated Norwegian RGPs workload in terms of time used on patient-related office work, administrative work, municipality tasks and other professional activities in relation to RGPs, and gender, age, employment status and size of municipality. In early 2018, an electronic survey was sent to all 4716 RGPs in Norway. In addition to demographic background, the RGP reported minutes per day used on various tasks in the RGP practice prospectively during 1 week. Working time also included additional tasks in the municipality, other professional work and on out-of-hours primary health care. Differences were analysed by chi square test, independent t-tests, and one-way ANOVA. Among 1876 RGPs (39.8%), the mean total working hours per week was 55.6, while the mean

The incidence of pelvic girdle pain (PGP) in pregnancy is wide ranged depending on definition, the utilised diagnostic means, and the design of the studies. PGP during pregnancy has negative effects on activities of daily living and causes long sick leave, which makes it a major public health issue. Our objectives were to explore the frequency of sick leave in pregnancy due to PGP, assess the relationship between different types of pain-related activities of daily living, examine physical workload, type of work in relation to sick leave, and to explore factors that make women less likely to take sick leave for PGP. All women giving birth at the maternity ward of Stavanger University Hospital, Norway, were asked to participate and complete a questionnaire on demographic features, PGP, pain-related activities of daily living, sick leave in general and for PGP, frequency of exercising before and during pregnancy. Drawings of pelvic girdle and low back area were used for the localization of pain. PGP
A TaqMan real-time PCR assay targeting the Anaplasma citrate synthase gene, gltA, was developed and used for detection of Anaplasma phagocytophilum in 765 Ixodes ricinus ticks collected from dogs and cats in northern Norway (n = 669) and Telemark county in southern Norway (n = 96). Among the ticks from northern Norway the prevalence of A. phagocytophilum was 3.0 %, while the prevalence in southern Norway was 2.1 % (p = 0.63). The gltA PCR assay showed a high analytical sensitivity (30 genomic units) and efficiency (98.5 %), and its utility in clinical diagnostics should be evaluated in future studies. This is the first report of A. phagocytophilum occurrence in ticks collected north of the Arctic Circle in Norway. The prevalence is comparable to that found in Telemark county in southern Norway.
Background: The social gradient in disability pension is well recognized, however mechanisms accounting for the gradient are largely unknown. The aim of this study was to examine the association between occupational class and subsequent disability pension among middle-aged men and women, and to what extent work-related factors accounted for the association. Methods: A subsample (N = 7031) of the population-based Hordaland Health Study (HUSK) conducted in 1997-99, provided self-reported information on health and work-related factors, and were grouped in four strata by Erikson, Goldthorpe and Portocareros occupational class scheme. The authors obtained follow-up data on disability pension by linking the health survey to national registries of benefit (FD-trygd). They employed Cox regression analysis and adjusted for gender, health (medical conditions, mental health, self-perceived health, somatic symptoms) and work-related factors (working hours, years in current occupation, physical demands, job ...
Police work is regarded as a high-stress occupation, but so far, no nationwide study has explored the associations between work stress and health. To explore physical and mental health among Norwegian police and associations to job stress. Comparisons were made with a nationwide sample of Norwegian physicians and the general Norwegian population. Comprehensive nationwide questionnaire survey of 3,272 Norwegian police at all hierarchical levels, including the Norwegian Police Stress Survey with two factors (serious operational tasks and work injuries), the Job Stress Survey with two factors (job pressure and lack of support), the Basic Character Inventory, the Subjective Health Complaint questionnaire, the Hospital Anxiety and Depression Scale, the Maslach Burnout Inventory, and Paykels Suicidal Feelings in the General Population. The frequency of job pressure and lack of support was mainly associated to physical and mental health problems. Females showed higher means on anxiety symptoms than males (4.2
Mr. P. Browne. asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he will give the value of the basic retirement pension in real terms at 31st May, 1962, as compared to the same dates in 1960 and 1961.. The Joint Parliamentary Secretary to the Ministry of Pensions and National Insurance (Mrs. Thatcher). The standard rate of retirement pension at 31st May, 1962, was 57s. 6d.; the equivalent value in real terms at that date of the standard rate payable at 31st May, 1960, was 54s. 5d., and the corresponding figure for 31st May, 1961, was 60s. 9d.. Mr. Browne. I find myself in some difficulty today in framing my supplementary question. Without wishing to comment on the temporary nature of Ministerial appointments, may I ask my hon. Friend if she will be sure to leave a note for the future Minister of Pensions and National Insurance drawing his or her attention to the debate we had last Friday dealing with the plight of pensioners generally? Can my hon. Friend say, if the last Minister of ...
11. Mr. Lawson. asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he will estimate the additional number of death grants which would be payable in the year 1964 if the disqualification in the case of the death of women born before 5th July, 1888, were removed.. 13. Mr. Small. asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance, if he will estimate how much it would cost in 1964 to pay a death grant of £25 in the case of the death of men born before 5th July, 1883, and of women born before 5th July, 1888.. 14. Mr. Ross. asked the Minister of Pensions and National Insurance if he will estimate the additional number of death grants which would be payable in the year 1964 if the disqualification in the case of the death of men born before 5th July, 1883, were removed.. Mr. N. Macpherson. About 50,000 additional grants would be paid for men and 120,000 for women at a cost of some £4½ million.. Mr. Lawson.

During the 2009 influenza A (H1N1) pandemic, a monovalent pandemic strain vaccine containing the oil-in-water adjuvant AS03 (Pandemrix®) was offered to the Norwegian population. The coverage among children reached 54 %. Our aim was to estimate the risk of febrile seizure in children after exposure to pandemic influenza vaccination or infection. The study population comprised 226,889 children born 2006-2009 resident in Norway per October 1st, 2009. Febrile seizure episodes were defined by emergency hospital admissions / emergency outpatient hospital care with International Classification of Diseases, Version 10, codes R56.0 or R56.8. The self-controlled case series method was applied to estimate incidence rate ratios (IRRs) in pre-defined risk periods compared to the background period. The total observation window was ± 180 days from exposure day. Among 113,068 vaccinated children, 656 (0.6 %) had at least one febrile seizure episode. The IRR of febrile seizures 1-3 days after vaccination was 2.00 (95
Results Of the 17 528 subjects, 18% (n=3076) consumed cod liver oil daily for ≥1 month over the past year. Cod liver oil intake was significantly associated with incident asthma with an OR of 1.62 (95% CI 1.32 to 1.98) after adjustment for age, sex, daily smoking, physical activity, education, socio-economic status, family history of asthma, and body mass index (BMI). The positive association was consistent across age (,40/≥40 years), sex (men/women), family history of asthma (yes/no) and BMI subgroups (,25/≥25 kg/m2).. ...
The first football team in Norway was probably started by a buekorps in Bergen, Nygaards Bataljon, in 1883.[4] In 1885 the first Norwegian club however, Idrætsforeningen Odd, was founded in Skien. The footballing interest was very low, and was put on ice after a few months. However, the club Odd Grenland started up with football again in 1894, and are now Norways oldest football club. The Football Association of Norway (the NFF), was founded in 1902, and quickly established a cup competition. After the NFF joined FIFA in 1908, Norway had its first ever international match, away against Sweden in Gothenburg; despite Norway taking the lead after a mere 45 seconds, Sweden went on to win 11-3. In 1911 Norway hosted its first international in Oslo, again against Sweden; this time Norway lost 4-0. In 1912 the Norway national team attended the Olympic Games, and were knocked out after losing to Denmark and Austria 7-0 and 1-0 respectively. The NFF hosted the FIFA congress in Oslo in 1914, where a ...
Background: Pressure ulcers are preventable adverse events. Organizational differences may influence the quality of prevention across wards and hospitals. Objective: To investigate the prevalence of pressure ulcers, patient-related risk factors, the use of preventive measures and how much of the pressure ulcer variance is at patient, ward and hospital level. Design: A cross-sectional study. Setting: Six of the 11 invited hospitals in South-Eastern Norway agreed to participate. Participants: Inpatients ,= 18 years at 88 somatic hospital wards (N = 1209). Patients in paediatric and maternity wards and day surgery patients were excluded. Methods: The methodology for pressure ulcer prevalence studies developed by the European Pressure Ulcer Advisory Panel was used, including demographic data, the Braden scale, skin assessment, the location and severity of pressure ulcers and preventive measures. Multilevel analysis was used to investigate variance across hierarchical levels. Results: The prevalence ...
In 2004, 48,000 people were exposed to contaminated municipal drinking water in a part of Bergen, Norway. From the Norwegian Prescription Database, it was assumed that , 2500 persons had been affected by a gastrointestinal infection (GI) [1]. The parasite Giardia lamblia was found to be responsible, having entered the water supply through a leak in a sewer pipe [2]. The infection caused diarrhoea, weight loss, and other gastrointestinal complaints [1]. Affected people were treated with antibiotics, but a minority remained ill and severely fatigued. They were referred to the Outpatient Clinic at the Department of Neurology, Haukeland University Hospital from August 2005 to September 2007 with suspicion of post-infectious fatigue syndrome (PIFS) [3].. Fatigue is one of the most debilitating symptoms in PIFS and is required, among other symptoms, to meet the diagnostic criteria for myalgic encephalomyelitis (ME) or chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS), two other commonly used labels for this condition. ...
Despite a prospective design linking a community-based health survey with comprehensive information on subsequent hospitalisations and death ensuring complete follow-up of participants, this study is also affected by limitations. First, even though the WI is a validated and frequently used instrument to assess health anxiety, it relies on self-reported symptoms and does not discern between health anxiety due to imagined illness or more legitimate reasons for concern, such as known risk for IHD. We tried to reduce the impact of high levels of health anxiety due to actual illness by excluding participants with prevalent and 12 months incident IHD. As the CVDNOR project spans the years 1994-2009, we could not exclude participants in HUSK diagnosed with IHD earlier than 1994; however, we argue that this represents a minor bias as the prevalence of IHD among persons younger than 40 years of age is very low.26 Further, if the atherosclerotic process precedes health anxiety, our results might be ...

Finnmark is a county in the extreme northeast of Norway. By land it borders Troms county to the west, Finland (Lapland) to the south and Russia (Murmansk Oblast) to the east, and by water, the Norwegian Sea (Atlantic Ocean) to the northwest, and the Barents Sea (Arctic Ocean) to the north and northeast. The county was formerly known as Finmarkens amt or Vardøhus amt, and since 2002, has had two official names: Finnmark (Norwegian) and Finnmárku (Sami language). It is part of the Sápmi region, which spans four countries, as well as the Barents Region, and is the largest and least populated county of Norway. Situated at the Northernmost part of continental Europe, where Norway swings eastward, Finnmark has always been an area where east meets west, in culture as well as in nature and geography. ...

In this prospective study of 18 894 adults, we did not observe a decreased risk of incident asthma in physically active compared with inactive adults over the 11-year follow-up. Despite observing a protective point estimate for those physically active at any or both surveys, the estimate had a high degree of uncertainty and was not supported in our sensitivity analyses. We did not find any variation in subgroups by age, sex, BMI, smoking status, family history of asthma or allergic rhinitis. Finally, after restricting to participants without any other respiratory symptoms at baseline, we found similar results, suggesting that the findings are not affected by protopathic biases.. To the best of our knowledge, this was the longest study to investigate the association between PA and incident asthma. The association between PA and asthma has been previously investigated in several cross-sectional and prospective studies. In a systematic review and meta-analysis, Eijkemans and colleagues reported on ...
Norway takes its reindeer seriously. Europes last remaining wild mountain reindeer (Rangifer tarandus tarandus) live in central and southern Norway.

The reindeers natural habitat has reduced by half in the… via…
Bergen County is in the northeast corner of New Jersey. Settled by the Dutch, Bergen was created in 1683 as one of the four original Counties in New Jersey. Its early borders included what are now Passaic and Hudson counties. In 1675 Bergen was included in a judicial district with Essex, Monmouth, and Middlesex counties. Later in 1683, Bergen was recognized as a county by the Provincial Assembly. In 1710, Hackensack became the county seat. Today, our 239-square-mile parcel of land in the northeast corner of the state has an estimated population of 825,380. Bergen had become a county of 70 municipalities, 56 boroughs, nine townships, three cities and two villages. ...
Recent studies indicate that the immune system adaptation during pregnancy could play a significant role in the pathophysiology of perinatal depression. The aim of this study was to investigate if inflammation markers in a late pregnancy plasma sample can predict the presence of depressive symptoms at eight weeks postpartum. Blood samples from 291 pregnant women (median and IQR for days to delivery, 13 and 7-23 days respectively) comprising 63 individuals with postpartum depressive symptoms, as assessed by the Edinburgh postnatal depression scale (EPDS ,= 12) and/or the Mini International Neuropsychiatric Interview (M.I.N.I.) and 228 controls were analyzed with an inflammation protein panel using multiplex proximity extension assay technology, comprising of 92 inflammation-associated markers. A summary inflammation variable was also calculated. Logistic regression, LASSO and Elastic net analyses were implemented. Forty markers were lower in late pregnancy among women with depressive symptoms ...

Patients in a large nursing home in Oslo, Norway, were prospectively followed during a 1.5-year period. Systematic comprehensive medication
On 26 October 2007 the Joint Committee of the European Economic Area, comprising Iceland, Lichtenstein and Norway, agreed to incorporate the Emissions Trading Directive 2003/87/EC and a number of implementing provisions into the Agreement on the European Economic Area (EEA). This agreement allows the above three countries to participate in the EU internal market. The decision entered into force 29 December 2007 following parliamentary approval from the EEA states. The Norwegian National Allocation Plan (NAP) sets out the framework for the allocation to installations obliged to surrender emission allowances under the 2008-12 EU emissions trading scheme, which Norway entered as of 1 January 2008. The Norwegian emission trading scheme (ETS) will cover 35 - 40% of the greenhouse gas emissions from Norwegian sources, and hence become a vital part of the Norwegian efforts to ensure compliance with the Kyoto Protocol. The petroleum sector, excluded under Norways previous domestic ETS, will be included ...

In-depth country review. The 2017 and 2011 IEA review of Norways energy policies is available for free download.. As one of the worlds largest energy exporters, Norway advances the energy security of consuming countries. And at the same time, as a global advocate for climate change mitigation, Norway is committed to environmental sustainability and climate policy.. The latest review of Norways energy policies by the International Energy Agency finds that the country continues to manage its significant hydrocarbon resources and revenues in a sustainable way, and remains a reliable supplier of oil and gas. But as the world looks to cut its reliance on fossil fuels, Norways government should also consider measures to prepare for a future with lower oil and gas revenues.. Norways large hydropower generation is another valuable energy asset particularly at a time when European electricity markets are integrating and variable renewable energy generation is growing. More cross-border connections ...

Its production in Norway, though, has become too expensive for REC and the company halted production and laid off another 200 workers at its Glomfjord facility this week. RECs solar cell plant in Narvik is already closed and parts of its wafer production at Herøya also have been shut down. All told, around 700 of RECs 1,300 employees in Norway are now idle.. The problem for REC is the Norwegian operation, claimed Hagen, who otherwise thinks prospects for RECs solar energy business remain bright. Industrial production is difficult in Norway, with high costs and salaries to produce things and export them out of the country.. RECs chief executive, Ole Enger, announced NOK 6.4 billion in write-offs and a corresponding loss for the second quarter, most of it tied to the companys Norwegian operations. He made it clear REC wont continue Norwegian production at any price.. Some foreign investors have been skeptical over whether REC will be willing to take the action necessary in Norway, ...
The EFTA Surveillance Authority (the Authority) requires Norway to stop the production of animal feed with fish meal on the same production lines as feed without fish meal. The Authority also rejects the Norwegian application for revision of the monitoring programme for bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE - mad cow disease).. As part of the process to eradicate inter alia BSE and scrapie, the use of animal proteins in feed for ruminants is prohibited. Since 2005, this feed ban also comprises fish meal. Norway initially opposed the introduction of these rules, however, after receiving a reasoned opinion on this matter from the Authority, Norway implemented the rules in 2010.. However, inspections carried out by the Authority have on several occasions shown that Norway still does not fully comply with the total feed ban, as Norway allows production of ruminant feed in facilities not physically separate from facilities producing feed containing fish meal for non-ruminant species (e.g. swine ...
Crucially, researchers have also found that this activity needs to be taken in peoples leisure time if they are to feel the benefits. The study showed that people who exert themselves at work, by doing lots of walking or lifting, are no less likely to be depressed than people with sedentary jobs.. Researchers from the Institute of Psychiatry, Kings College London teamed up with academics from the Norwegian Institute of Public Health and the University of Bergen in Norway to conduct the study. They asked 40,401 Norwegian residents how often they engaged in both light and intense physical activity during their leisure time. Light activity was defined as an activity that did not lead to being sweaty or out-of-breath, while intense activity did result in sweating or breathlessness. The residents were also asked how physically active they were at work, underwent a physical examination and answered questions regarding symptoms of depression and anxiety.. The team found an inverse relationship ...
