Seasonal patterns in behavior and biological parameters are widespread. Here, we examined seasonal changes in whole blood gene expression profiles of 233 healthy subjects. Using weighted gene co-expression network analysis, we identified three co-expression modules showing circannual patterns. Enrichment analysis suggested that this signal stems primarily(More)
Prediction of primary cardiovascular events has been thoroughly investigated since the landmark Framingham risk score was introduced. However, prediction of secondary events after initial events of coronary artery disease (CAD) poses a new challenge. In a cohort of coronary angiography patients (n = 1760), we examined readily available hematological(More)
BACKGROUND Postoperative new-onset atrial fibrillation (PNAF) is the most common complication following cardiac surgery. The inflammatory response, as a potential underlying mechanism, has been extensively studied. In small studies, the white blood cell count (WBC) has been shown to be the only consistent inflammatory marker associated with PNAF. This study(More)
Non-adherence to medication is a major issue in the treatment of schizophrenia in general and in particular for those treated with clozapine. A reliable tool to quantify patients long-term adherence to clozapine is currently unavailable. Enhanced FL3 neutrophil granulocyte fluorescence was serendipitously observed in a small population of schizophrenic(More)
