BACKGROUND There is an absence of population-based long-term studies on the risk of neurological sequelae in children born after in-vitro fertilisation (IVF). Our aim was to compare the frequency of such problems between IVF-born children and controls. METHODS We did a population-based retrospective cohort study in which we compared development of(More)
AIM The intercellular adhesion molecule-1 (ICAM-1) gene is located on chromosome 19p13, which is linked to Type 1 diabetes (T1D). ICAM-1 expression is related to development of T1D and diabetic nephropathy. The present study aims to evaluate the genetic influence of ICAM-1 gene polymorphisms on the development of T1D and diabetic nephropathy. METHODS Five(More)
OBJECTIVE During the past few decades, a rapidly increasing incidence of childhood type 1 diabetes (T1D) has been reported from many parts of the world. The change over time has been partly explained by changes in lifestyle causing rapid early growth and weight development. The current study models and analyzes the time trend by age, sex, and birth cohort(More)
OBJECTIVE To clarify whether the increase in childhood type 1 diabetes is mirrored by a decrease in older age-groups, resulting in younger age at diagnosis. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS We used data from two prospective research registers, the Swedish Childhood Diabetes Register, which included case subjects aged 0-14.9 years at diagnosis, and the Diabetes(More)

Let {φ k } n k=0 , n < m, be a family of polynomials orthogonal with respect to the positive semi-definite bilinear form (g, h) d := 1 m m j=1 g(x j)h(x j), x j := −1 + (2j − 1)/m. These polynomials are known as Gram polynomials. The present paper investigates the growth of |φ k (x)| as a function of k and m for fixed x ∈ [−1, 1]. We show that when n ≤ 2.5m(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to estimate the current cumulative risk of end-stage renal disease (ESRD) due to diabetic nephropathy in a large, nationwide, population-based prospective type 1 diabetes cohort and specifically study the effects of sex and age at onset. RESEARCH DESIGN AND METHODS In Sweden, all incident cases of type 1 diabetes aged 0-14 years(More)
Despite a widely recognised need, most countries still have no coherent system to deal with scientific misconduct. Committees have been established by the national medical research councils in Denmark (1992), Norway (1994), and Sweden (1997), and by the Ministry of Education in Finland (1994), to deal with scientific misconduct--ie, to initiate preventive(More)
We examined the effects of graded doses of methylprednisolone sodium succinate (MPSS)--0.05 (low), 0.5 (medium), and 5 mg/kg/hour (high)--on the development of neurogenic pulmonary injury in rabbits. The aerosolized drug was administered intratracheally for 5 hours beginning 10 minutes after a 2-minute elevation of the cerebrospinal fluid pressure (Pcsf) to(More)
