AIM Little is known on the possible existence of socioeconomic and geographical differences in early coeliac disease (CD) risk. Therefore, we investigated these aspects in children before age two. METHODS Linking the Swedish Medical Birth Registry to several other national registries, we identified all singletons born in Sweden from 1987 to 1993 (n =(More)
AIM This study investigated whether perinatal factors influenced the risk of a double diagnosis of type 1 diabetes and coeliac disease. METHODS We used multinomial logistic regression models to study the associations between perinatal factors, gender, mode of delivery, season of birth and the risk of type 1 diabetes, coeliac disease or both, in(More)
BACKGROUND For unknown reasons girls are at an increased risk of coeliac disease compared to boys. However, the observed association might be confounded, since maternal coeliac disease is associated with both an increased risk of the disease in first-degree relatives as well as an increased ratio of girls to boys in offspring. AIMS We investigate the(More)
OBJECTIVE An association between small for gestational age (SGA) and risk for celiac disease (CD) in childhood has previously been reported. However, this association may reflect residual confounding by genetic or environmental factors. For example, presence of subclinical CD in the mother might be a common cause of both SGA and CD in the offspring. We(More)
Previously, chromosomal anomalies and, to a lesser extent, other congenital anomalies have been associated with an increased risk of celiac disease (CD). We investigated these associations using a systematic approach. We identified all of the singleton children (792,401) born in Sweden between 1987 and 1993, and obtained cases of CD using the Swedish(More)
The interpretation of postmortem heart weight is often difficult, and references for normal heart weight are important. However, to assess the cause of death at a medicolegal autopsy it is also important to have references based on an unselected population of medicolegal autopsy cases with non-natural causes of death (not due directly to disease). We aimed(More)
BACKGROUND It is rare that epidemiological surveys of patients with major trauma include both those admitted to the emergency department and those sent for medico-legal autopsy. The main aim of the present population-based study of major trauma was to examine the importance of medico-legal autopsy data. METHODS A new injury severity score (NISS)>15 or(More)
Heavy combined lung weight at autopsy is a non-specific autopsy finding associated with certain causes of death such as intoxication. There is however no clear definition of what constitutes "heavy" lung weight. Different reference values have been suggested but previous studies have been limited by small select populations and only univariate regression(More)
