BACKGROUND This phase II randomized, placebo-controlled study was conducted to evaluate efficacy and safety of radium-223 in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and painful bone metastases. Twelve- and 18-month survival results were reported previously. Here we report 24-month overall survival (OS) and safety data from the period 12 to(More)
AIMS Long-term disease progression following myocardial infarction (MI) is not well understood. We examined the risk of subsequent cardiovascular events in patients discharged after MI in Sweden. METHODS AND RESULTS This was a retrospective, cohort study linking morbidity, mortality, and medication data from Swedish national registries. Of 108 315(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES Statin-induced changes in high-density lipoprotein cholesterol (HDL-C) and low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL-C) are unrelated. Many patients initiated on statins experience a paradoxical decrease in HDL-C. The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between a decrease in HDL-C and risk of major adverse(More)
Radium-223 dichloride (radium-223) mimics calcium and emits high-energy, short-range alpha-particles resulting in an antitumor effect on bone metastases. This open-label, phase IIa nonrandomized study investigated safety and short-term efficacy of radium-223 in breast cancer patients with bone-dominant disease. Twenty-three advanced breast cancer patients(More)
OBJECTIVE Peripheral artery disease (PAD) is common worldwide, and PAD patients are increasingly offered lower limb revascularization procedures. The aim of this population-based study was to describe the current risk for cardiovascular (CV) events and mortality and also to elucidate the current pharmacologic treatment patterns in revascularized lower limb(More)
UNLABELLED The aim was to evaluate the reliability of a method of measuring neck muscle fatigue among helicopter pilots. METHOD Surface EMG from three areas in the neck region, bilaterally, was recorded among 10 male helicopter pilots while they were performing isometric contractions in flexion and extension for 45 s, sustaining a force representing 75%(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to investigate the associations between proton pump inhibitor (PPI) usage patterns and risk of severe gastrointestinal events in patients treated with low-dose acetylsalicylic acid (LDA). DESIGN AND SETTING A nationwide cohort study in Sweden. PATIENTS All Swedish residents ≥ 40 years of age, without cancer and(More)
BACKGROUND Radium-223 prolongs overall survival in patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC) and symptomatic bone metastases, regardless of prior docetaxel. Whether or not chemotherapy can be safely administered following radium-223 treatment is of clinical importance. An exploratory analysis of prospectively collected data, from the(More)
Merging data from existing electronic patient records, and electronic hospital discharge and cause of death registers, is a fast and relatively inexpensive method for comparing different treatments with regard to clinical outcome. This study compared the effects of antihypertensive treatment with candesartan or losartan on cardiovascular disease (CVD) using(More)
This paper evaluates the OR-ULD (Overload Resolution using Utility Loss Density) algorithm for imprecise computation workloads, where tasks are decomposed into one mandatory task and one optional task. OR-ULD is a value-driven overload resolution algorithm running in Ç´Ò log Òµ time, where Ò is the number of tasks. The algorithm is invoked only in case of(More)
