OBJECTIVES To evaluate the individual risk factors composing the CHADS(2) (Congestive heart failure, Hypertension, Age ≥ 75 years, Diabetes, previous Stroke) score and the CHA(2)DS(2)-VASc (CHA(2)DS(2)-Vascular disease, Age 65-74 years, Sex category) score and to calculate the capability of the schemes to predict thromboembolism. DESIGN Registry based(More)
It was the aim of this study to determine the efficacy and safety of vitamin K antagonists (VKAs) and acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) in patients with non-valvular atrial fibrillation (AF), with separate analyses according to predicted thromboembolic and bleeding risk. By individual level-linkage of nationwide registries, we identified all patients discharged(More)
OBJECTIVE The magnitude of the cardiovascular risk from psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis is debated. We therefore investigated the psoriasis-related risk of adverse cardiovascular events and mortality. DESIGN, SETTING AND SUBJECTS We conducted a cohort study of the entire Danish population aged ≥18 years followed from 1997 to 2006 by individual-level(More)
We examined long-term musculoskeletal and cardiac adaptations elicited by recreational football (FG, n=9) and running (RG, n=10) in untrained premenopausal women in comparison with a control group (CG, n=9). Training was performed for 16 months ( approximately 2 weekly 1-h sessions). For FG, right and left ventricular end-diastolic diameters were increased(More)
BACKGROUND The balance between stroke reduction and increased bleeding associated with antithrombotic therapy among patients with atrial fibrillation (AF) and chronic kidney disease (CKD) is controversial. OBJECTIVES This study assessed the risk associated with CKD in individual CHA₂DS₂-VASc (Congestive heart failure; Hypertension; Age ≥75 years; Diabetes(More)
BACKGROUND Patients with type 1 diabetes and nephropathy maintain an excess cardiovascular mortality compared with diabetic patients with normoalbuminuria. We sought to evaluate coronary and aortic atherosclerosis in a cohort of asymptomatic type 1 diabetic patients with and without diabetic nephropathy using cardiovascular magnetic resonance imaging.

The present study investigated whether football has favorable effects in the treatment of mild-to-moderate arterial hypertension in untrained middle-aged men. Twenty-five untrained males aged 31-54 year with mild-to-moderate hypertension were randomized to a football training group (FTG, two 1-h sessions per week) and a control group receiving(More)
A new method for solid-phase peptide synthesis in which a protein is used as the solid support has been developed. Two aspects of the method have been demonstrated. The peptides H-Phe-Leu-Glu-Glu-Val-OH (1) and H-Leu-Leu-Ala-Gly-Val-OH (2), respectively, were synthesized on the amino groups of BSA via a cleavable linker, using the Fmoc group protecting(More)
AIMS Our aim was to evaluate the markers of tubulointerstitial damage, neutrophil gelatinase-associated lipocalin (NGAL) and kidney injury molecule1 (KIM1) in Type 1 diabetic patients with different levels of albuminuria and in control subjects. In addition, the effect of renoprotective treatment on urinary NGAL was evaluated in diabetic nephropathy. (More)
