OBJECTIVES An association between infection and arterial thromboembolic events (ATE) has been suggested. Here we examined the risk of myocardial infarction (MI), stroke and other ATE after Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB). METHODS Danish register-based nation-wide observational cohort study between 1995 and 2008 with matched control subjects from(More)
BACKGROUND Data on risk factors and rates of reinfection associated with Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) are sparse. METHODS We conducted a nationwide cohort study of cases of SAB diagnosed between 1995 and 2008. Reinfection was defined as an episode of SAB more than 90 days after the initial episode of SAB. Comorbidity was evaluated by the(More)
BACKGROUND The objective of this study was to assess temporal changes in incidence and short term mortality of Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) from 1995 through 2008. METHODS The study was conducted as a nation-wide observational cohort study with matched population controls. The setting was hospitalized patients in Denmark 1995-2008. Uni- and(More)
OBJECTIVES Data describing long-term mortality in patients with Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB) is scarce. This study investigated risk factors, causes of death and temporal trends in long-term mortality associated with SAB. METHODS Nationwide population-based matched cohort study. Mortality rates and ratios for 25,855 cases and 258,547 controls(More)
OBJECTIVES Recent evidence suggests that there is an association between infection and venous thromboembolism (VTE). Here, we examined the risk of VTE after Staphylococcus aureus bacteraemia (SAB) compared to the risk in control subjects. DESIGN AND SETTING Register-based nationwide observational cohort study of hospitalized patients and matched control(More)
OBJECTIVE To examine if monocyte and macrophage activity may be on the mechanistic pathway to non-AIDS comorbidity by investigating the associations between plasma-soluble CD163 (sCD163) and incident non-AIDS comorbidities in well treated HIV-infected individuals. DESIGN Prospective single-center cohort study. METHODS Plasma sCD163 was quantified by(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated the effect and influence of diabetes severity on susceptibility and 30-day mortality of Staphylococcus aureus bacteremia (SAB). METHODS Nationwide population-based study of individuals with SAB and matched population controls. Diabetes severity was categorized based on International Classification of Diseases codes and(More)
