AIM Among Swedish children of 0-12 years old, we investigated various food allergy-related exposures associated with health-related quality of life using a food allergy-specific questionnaire among children allergic to the staple foods cow's milk, hen's egg and/or wheat, and contextualised worse food allergy-associated health-related quality of life using a(More)
BACKGROUND The use of central venous lines carries a significant risk for serious complications and high economic costs. Lately, the peripherally inserted central venous catheter (PICC) has gained in popularity due to presumed advantages over other central venous lines. The aim of this systematic literature review was to identify scientific evidence(More)
BACKGROUND Cow's milk, hen's egg and wheat are staple foods in a typical western diet. Despite the ubiquity of these foods, the impact of staple food allergy on health-related quality of life (HRQL) amongst adolescents is incompletely understood. The aims of this study were to make use of the Swedish version of EuroPrevall's disease-specific food allergy(More)
The objective of this study is to explore the relationship between variables that may influence pharmaceutical costs in asthma and to generate a predictive model for these costs in primary health care. The understanding of these relationships is important since costs of drugs may place unnecessary economic burden on patients and society. During 2003,(More)
The authors carried out a systematic and critical review of the scientific literature regarding the possible development of neutralising antibodies developed in patients treated with growth hormone biosimilars (defined as a drug expected to be similar to the originator or original pharmaceutical -European Medicines Agency) as compared to the reference drug.(More)
To describe the utilization of antiasthmatic drugs in Sweden and to explore regional variations in drug utilization and adherence to guidelines for rational drug prescribing of antiasthmatics and their rationale.

BACKGROUND In clinical trials of asthma, the outcomes are often good, but when the same treatment regimens are implemented in primary care, equally good results are not obtained. OBJECTIVE To investigate if addition of structured patient information and monitoring by an asthma diary in primary care improves asthma control. METHODS 141 patients from 19(More)
BACKGROUND In accordance with European guidelines, mammography screening comprises independent readings by two breast radiologists (double reading). CAD (computer-aided detection) has been suggested to complement or replace one of the two readers (single reading + CAD).The aim of this systematic review is to address the following question: Is the reading of(More)
AIMS To explore the factor structure of asthma severity and asthma control and to compare the results of different approaches to asthma severity classification on the distribution of costs of asthma medication. METHODS Comparison of four different approaches to asthma severity classification and factor analysis of asthma control descriptors. A correlation(More)
