OBJECTIVE This study was undertaken to identify and quantify risk factors for endometrial cancer among young women. STUDY DESIGN This case-control study included all Danish women <50 years old who had endometrial cancer diagnosed during the period 1987 to 1994. A total of 237 case patients and 538 population control subjects matched with the case patients(More)
The aim of the study was to investigate the effect of 25 micrograms 17 beta-estradiol administered as a small vaginal tablet (Vagifem, Novo Nordisk A/S) on the symptoms of the vagina related to atrophy. The study was designed as a double-blind randomized placebo controlled study running for 12 weeks. The women were treated once daily for 2 weeks with the(More)
Normal growth curves of the fetal biparietal diameter (BPD) and abdominal diameter (AD) were measured by ultrasound in 41 normal pregnant women who had had regular menstruation with a known last menstrual period. The women were studied longitudinally from the 13th - 14th week of gestation and thereafter every 2-4 weeks until spontaneous onset of labor. The(More)
Lamicel is a synthetic tent, which, when inserted in the cervical canal, dilates the cervix by osmosis. Lamicel as an adjunct to induction of labour with intravenous oxytocin or vaginal prostaglandin E2 has been examined in a randomized controlled trial. Ninety-one pregnant women with an unripe cervix participated in the study. No improvement in efficacy(More)
The study included 3311 pregnant women: 1570 in the screened group and 1741 in the unscreened group. In the screened group, ultrasound was offered routinely in the 32nd and 37th week of pregnancy, at which time the fetal biparietal diameter (BPD) and the abdominal mean diameter (AD) were measured. If, after the first ultrasound examination, the estimated(More)
Birthweight-for-gestational age charts were based on the analysis of 3888 consecutive births in which the gestational age was estimated by measuring the fetal biparietal diameter before the 20th week of gestation. The data showed, in contrast to previous studies, a linear relation between gestational age and birthweight without inflection after term. The(More)
HbCO in blood sampled from 20 mothers and newborns immediately after birth was measured with a new, simple gas-chromatographic method for CO. The mean ratio of HbCO to total hemoglobin for 13 non-smoking mothers did not differ significantly from that for their infants (mean 0.38%, SD 0.26% vs 0.38%, SD 0.13%), but the HbCO ratio varied more in the mothers(More)
The acute effects of cigarette smoking on fetal breathing movements and fetal movements were determined with a real-time ultrasound system in 10 healthy habitually smoking women in late gestation. The study was carried out for 1 hour before and 1 hour after the woman smoked a single cigarette. The maternal blood glucose concentration was maintained at a(More)
