Childhood metabolic syndrome and its components in premature adrenarche.
TLDR
Prepubertal Northern European PA girls have increased prevalence of cMBS mainly due to being overweight and their hyperinsulinism. Expand
Allergen-specific immunoglobulin E antibodies in wheezing infants: the risk for asthma in later childhood.
TLDR
When present in wheezing infants, specific IgE of >or=0.35 kU/L to wheat, egg white, or inhalant allergens are predictive of later childhood asthma, especially in cases with no clinically evident atopic manifestations. Expand
Serum sialic acid as a marker of alcohol consumption: effect of liver disease and heavy drinking.
TLDR
This study suggests that serum SA is a sensitive marker of excessive alcohol consumption and may also prove to be of value in conditions in which the results of the traditional markers reflect the severity of liver disease rather than alcohol consumption. Expand
Decreased PAPP-A is associated with preeclampsia, premature delivery and small for gestational age infants but not with placental abruption.
TLDR
The concentrations of first trimester screening (FTS) serum markers were lower in pregnancies where PE, PD and SGA occurred and in the latter two cases, there was an inverse association between incidence and PAPP-A and fβ-hCG values. Expand
Total and lipid-bound serum sialic acid in benign and malignant breast disease.
TLDR
It is indicated that both breast cancer and benign breast disease cause elevation of TSA, TSA/TP and LASA values in serum and do not provide reliable classification of undefined breast tumors. Expand
Pituitary-adrenal function in patients with acute subarachnoid haemorrhage: a prospective cohort study
TLDR
Serum free and total cortisol concentrations correlated but were unaffected by the severity of SAH, and calculation of serum free cortisol concentration was not helpful in identifying patients with potential hypocortisolism. Expand
Biomarkers of alcohol consumption in patients classified according to the degree of liver disease severity
TLDR
While the overall accuracy of CDT and GT appear to be highest in the detection of problem drinking, serum SA and PIIINP measurements are of further value when the effects of liver pathology and ethanol drinking need to be differentiated. Expand
Tracking serum lipid levels and the association of cholesterol concentrations, blood pressure and cigarette smoking with carotid artery intima-media thickness in young adults born small for
TLDR
A clear tracking of cholesterol levels through adolescence enables early targeting of lifestyle counseling for reducing cardiovascular disease risk. Expand
Measurement of prostate-specific antigen in detection of benign or malignant breast disease in women
TLDR
Serum total PSA cannot be used to distinguish between healthy women and/or women with breast cancer or benign breast disease, and is not statistically different from those of healthy controls. Expand
A history of diabetes but not hyperglycaemia during exacerbation of obstructive lung disease has impact on long-term mortality: a prospective, observational cohort study
TLDR
A history of diabetes but not hyperglycaemia during exacerbation of obstructive lung disease has impact on long-term mortality, and the associations between highest glucose values and mortality vanished when the diagnosis of diabetes was included in the same model. Expand
