Increased level of platelet microparticles in survivors of myocardial infarction
Platelet microparticles (PMPs) are highly procoagulant and might therefore be important in the pathogenesis of arterial thrombotic diseases. The aim of this study was to determine plasma levels ofExpand

Association of Mild to Moderate Chronic Kidney Disease With Venous Thromboembolism: Pooled Analysis of Five Prospective General Population Cohorts
Background— Recent findings suggest that chronic kidney disease (CKD) may be associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE). Given the high prevalence of mild-to-moderate CKD inExpand

Elevated levels of platelet microparticles in carotid atherosclerosis and during the postprandial state.
BACKGROUND Platelet microparticles (PMPs) possess proatherogenic and procoagulant properties which may play a role in atherogenesis and subsequent thromboembolic complications. The present study wasExpand

Heparin induces mobilization of osteoprotegerin into the circulation.
Heparin treatment may induce osteoporosis by an unknown mechanism. Osteoprotegerin (OPG), a glycoprotein with a heparin-binding site, is a decoy receptor for RANKL which is responsible for osteoclastExpand

COPD and risk of venous thromboembolism and mortality in a general population
The relationship between chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and risk of venous thromboembolism (VTE) has been scarcely studied in the general population. We aimed to investigate theExpand

Impact of long-term testosterone treatment on plasma levels of free TFPI and TF-induced thrombin generation ex vivo in elderly men with low testosterone levels.
Men have a higher incidence of cardiovascular disease (CVD) than women of similar age, and it has been suggested that testosterone may influence the development of CVD. Recently, we demonstrated thatExpand

Serum osteoprotegerin and future risk of cancer and cancer-related mortality in the general population: the Tromsø study
The purpose was to investigate the association between serum osteoprotegerin (OPG) and risk of incident cancer and cancer mortality in a general population. OPG was measured in serum collected fromExpand

Regulation of thrombin generation by TFPI in plasma without and with heparin.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the impact of recombinant glycosylated TFPI (rg-TFPI) from BHK cells, nonglycosylated TFPI (r-TFPI) from Escherichia coli, and truncated TFPI (1-161) onExpand

Myocardial infarction and future risk of cancer in the general population—the Tromsø Study
The association between myocardial infarction (MI) and future risk of incident cancer is scarcely investigated. Therefore, we aimed to study the risk of cancer after a first time MI in a large cohortExpand

Coagulation activation in young survivors of myocardial infarction (MI)--a population-based case-control study.
Formation of an occlusive thrombus by exposure of tissue factor (TF) to circulating blood and subsequent triggering of coagulation by TF-FVIIa complexes on ruptured atherosclerotic plaques is thoughtExpand
