The effect of metoprolol on mortality was compared with that of placebo in a double blind randomised trial in patients with definite or suspected acute myocardial infarction. Treatment with metoprolol or placebo started as soon as possible after the patient's arrival in hospital and was continued for 90 days. Metoprolol was given as a 15 mg intravenous dose(More)
The effect of the presenting clinical features on survival time was evaluated in 173 patients of a population of 201 individuals with multiple myeloma observed at Malmö General Hospital during the 11-yr period 1960 to January 1, 1971. Complete follow-up was continued until December 1978. One-hundred and five of the patients came from the city of Malmö and(More)
Serum uric concentration was determined in a series of 1462 women, aged 38-60 when first examined in 1968-69, as the first phase of a longitudinal population study in Gothenburg, Sweden. Serum uric acid concentration was positively correlated to the 12-year overall mortality in univariate analysis. No relationship was observed between initial serum uric(More)
We determined the catalytic concentration of gamma-glutamyltransferase in serum from a population sample of 1408 women in seven age strata between 26 and 72 years. The range in healthy individuals for the different age groups was found to increase with age with a maximum of the central 0.95 fractile interval at 58 years (0.17-1.68 microk/l). The serum(More)
The effects of glibenclamide and glipizide on the concentrations of S-glucose, S-insulin and S-lipids and on the 24-hour urinary glucose excretion were studied in 37 patients with maturity onset diabetes. A double-blind, cross over double-dummy technique was used. The fasting S-insulin concentration was higher during glibenclamide therapy, while the(More)
In the Göteborg Metoprolol Trial, 1395 patients with suspected acute myocardial infarction were, on admission, randomly allocated to double-blind treatment, 697 to placebo and 698 to metoprolol (15 mg i.v. + 200 mg/day) for 90 days. During this period, there were 62 deaths in the placebo group (8.9%) and 40 in the metoprolol group (5.7%), a mortality(More)
Among a cohort of 348 women aged 50 on entering a 12-year prospective study, the incidence of diabetes was increased (17.1%) during follow-up in those who initially had fasting glucose concentration above the upper quintile, a fasting serum insulin concentration above the upper quintile (14.9%), a disappearance rate of glucose below the lowest quintile in(More)
