OBJECTIVES This study analyzed the potential association between shift work and ischemic stroke. METHODS The analysis was carried out using a nested case-control study consisting of 138 shift workers and 469 day workers from the register of the Northern Sweden Monitoring of Trends and Determinants in Cardiovascular Diseases (MONICA) study and the(More)
Disopyramide is provided as a racemic mixture of R and S enantiomers, which have different pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic characteristics. Five volunteers were given racemic disopyramide 100 mg and 200 mg t.d.s. in a cross-over design. Plasma and urine concentrations of disopyramide and its active metabolite monodesisopropyl-disopyramide (MND) were(More)
The relative bioavailability of lymecycline and tetracycline hydrochloride was compared in 12 healthy volunteers in a double-blind cross-over study using a high performance liquid chromatographic method for plasma and urine analyses. A statistical significant difference in favour of tetracycline hydrochloride was found concerning the mean AUC and the mean(More)
Boo Health Centre in Nacka, Sweden, manages approximately 240 patients on warfarin treatment. A risk analysis showed that testing and prescribing of warfarin involved 28 different steps and nine parties, leading to a high risk of errors. The aim of the study was to shorten and simplify the process flow for the testing and prescription of warfarin by(More)
PURPOSE Shift work has been associated with an excess risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and more specifically myocardial infarction (MI). The majority of the studies that found a positive association between shift work and CVD have been based on incidence data. The results from studies on cardiovascular-related mortality among shift workers have shown(More)
1 We have given fifteen healthy volunteers single doses of racemic (+/-)-propranolol orally (40 mg) and intravenously (5-10 mg) to find out how large the variation was of the ratio between (-)- and (+)-propranolol plasma levels in relation to that of total levels of propranolol and 4-hydroxypropranolol. 2 Total propranolol (+/-)-levels 2 h after a 40 mg(More)
BACKGROUND The Framingham Risk Score is used both in the clinical setting and in health economic analyses to predict the risk for future coronary heart disease events. Based on an American population, the Framingham Risk Score has been criticised for potential overestimation of risk in European populations. OBJECTIVE We investigated whether the use of the(More)
