WebChoice is an Internet-based, interactive health communication application that allows cancer patients to monitor their symptoms and problems, provides individually tailored information and self-management support, e-communication with expert cancer(More)
The risk of venous thrombosis is thought to be increased by flying. In a study of 20 healthy male volunteers who were suddenly exposed to a hypobaric environment similar to that encountered within aeroplane cabins, markers of activated coagulation transiently Increased by two-fold to eight-fold. We suggest that hypobaric hypoxia, with sedentariness and(More)
METHODS MEDLINE surveys were carried out and reference lists were cross-checked to identify publications on long-term outcome for dietary treatment of obesity. 898 papers were identified, 17 fulfilled our planned criteria for inclusion (dietary treatment; adults; follow-up period > or = 3 years; follow-up rate > or = 50% of original study group; information(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this paper was to describe patients' use of a multi-component eHealth application, WebChoice, designed to support cancer patients in illness management. With WebChoice patients can monitor their symptoms, obtain individually tailored, evidence-based self-management support, ask questions to a clinical nurse specialist, communicate(More)
OBJECTIVE Ficolin-3 is a serum protein of putative importance in autoimmunity. Our objective was to investigate any differential expression of ficolin-3 in patients with systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) or its clinical subsets. METHODS Serum levels of ficolin-3 (S-ficolin-3) were determined in 95 patients with SLE and 103 healthy controls using an(More)
Tissue factor pathway inhibitor (TFPI) is released to circulating blood after intravenous (i.v.) and subcutaneous (s.c.) injections of heparins, and may thus contribute to the antithrombotic effect of heparins. We have recently shown that total TFPI activity, plasma free TFPI antigen, and heparin releasable TFPI were partially depleted during repeated and(More)
This paper describes the development and a preliminary usage analysis of a novel Internet-based support system that assists cancer patients in symptom monitoring and disease management. The system, called WebChoice, allows patients to monitor symptoms over time, and provides access to evidence-based self-management options tailored to their reported(More)
OBJECTIVES Hormone therapy (HT) is associated with a modest, but significantly increased risk for arterial and venous thromboembolism. We have compared the effects of estrogen, tibolone, and raloxifene on relevant markers of coagulation activation and investigated whether there is a dose-response relationship of oral HT. METHODS Randomized, open-label,(More)
INTRODUCTION We have recently reported that different hormone regimens given to healthy post-menopausal women had markedly different effects on activation of coagulation. Low-dose hormone therapy (HT) and raloxifene, as opposed to conventional-dose HT and tibolone, were associated with no or minor activation of coagulation. The aim of this study was to(More)
Internet-based online patient-nurse communication (OPNC) services can constitute an important opportunity to support patients to manage their illness between treatment and rehabilitation while being at home. We explored the content of messages sent by prostate and breast cancer patients to an OPNC service to identify symptoms, problems, concerns and(More)
