BACKGROUND As respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) and human metapneumovirus (hMPV) cause serious respiratory tract infections, the routes of transmission of these viruses are important to elucidate. We examined the modes of virus shedding and shedding duration of RSV and hMPV in young children. METHODS From each child in a group of 44 children (37(More)
Respiratory symptoms are common in infancy. Most illnesses occurring among children are dealt with by parents and do not require medical attention. Nevertheless, few studies have prospectively and on a community-basis assessed the amount of respiratory symptoms and general illness in normal infants. In this population-based birth cohort study, 228 healthy(More)
During insulin stimulation whole body glucose uptake is increased in trained compared with untrained humans. However, it is not known which tissue is responsible. Seven young male subjects bicycle trained one leg for 10 wk at 70% of maximal O2 consumption (VO2max). Sixteen hours after last exercise bout, a three-step euglycemic hyperinsulinemic clamp (clamp(More)
BACKGROUND Studies of the clinical outcome in adulthood of asymptomatic airway hyperresponsiveness (AHR) to histamine or exercise-induced bronchospasm (EIB) detected in childhood in general population samples are sparse and have produced conflicting results. OBJECTIVE To describe the outcome of asymptomatic AHR to histamine and EIB. METHODS Data from a(More)
BACKGROUND The prevalence of asthma appears to be increasing, but our knowledge about factors associated with asthma in young adults is limited. Factors associated with asthma were studied in 624 (66% of those invited) young Danish adults (aged 19 to 29 years). OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to investigate the prevalence and predictors of asthma(More)
BACKGROUND Human bocavirus (HBoV) is a recently discovered parvovirus that has been detected in respiratory samples from children with acute respiratory tract infection (ARTI) and in feces from children with gastroenteritis. However, its role as a causative agent of respiratory disease is not determined. METHODS We investigated the presence of HBoV by(More)
The newly discovered human metapneumovirus (hMPV) has been shown to be associated with respiratory illness. We determined the frequencies and clinical features of hMPV and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) infections in 374 Danish children with 383 episodes of acute respiratory tract infection (ARTI). Study material comprised routine nasopharyngeal(More)
OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to describe trends in the management of pregnancies in HIV-infected women and their outcomes over a 14-year period in Denmark on a national basis. METHODS The study was a retrospective cohort study of all HIV-infected women in Denmark giving birth to one or more children between 1 June 1994 and 30 June 2008. RESULTS(More)
From responses to identical absolute glucose loads in trained (T) and untrained (UT) subjects, it has been inferred that training promotes health by reducing glucose levels and insulin secretion. To mimic daily living conditions, we studied responses to oral glucose loads making up identical fractions of daily carbohydrate intake (i.e., same relative(More)
Physical training decreases resting heart rate as well as heart rate and catecholamine responses to ordinary physical activity and mental stress. These effects have been speculated to diminish cardiac morbidity. However, the sparing of heartbeats and catecholamine production might be outweighed by exaggerated responses during training sessions. To elucidate(More)
