IIn recent years, scientific papers have been published in Osteoporosis International on the epidemiology of fractures in Iceland based on the Icelandic Heart Association cohort. We report the main results with emphasis on the major osteoporotic fractures (MOF), distal forearm, upper arm, clinical vertebral and hip. Those four types of fractures have been reported to cause about 90% of the total burden of all osteoporotic fractures. The incidence of those four fractures in the Icelandic Heart Association cohort have been used as the basis for the international fracture risk calculator "FRAX "in Iceland...

Dystroglycan is a cell membrane receptor that organizes the basement membrane by binding ligands in the extracellular matrix. Proper glycosylation of the α-dystroglycan (α-DG) subunit is essential for these activities, and lack thereof results in neuromuscular disease. Currently, neither the glycan synthesis pathway nor the roles of many known or putative glycosyltransferases that are essential for this process are well understood. Here we show that FKRP, FKTN, TMEM5 and B4GAT1 (formerly known as B3GNT1) localize to the Golgi and contribute to the O-mannosyl post-phosphorylation modification of α-DG...

Environmental impacts of 15 European pig farming systems were evaluated in the European Union Q-PorkChains project using life cycle assessment. One conventional and two non-conventional systems were evaluated from each of the five countries: Denmark, The Netherlands, Spain, France and Germany. The data needed for calculations were obtained from surveys of 5 to 10 farms from each system. The systems studied were categorised into conventional (C), adapted conventional (AC), traditional (T) and organic (O). Compared with C systems, AC systems differed little, with only minor changes to improve meat quality, animal welfare or environmental impacts, depending on the system...

OBJECTIVE: To examine cognitive activity limitations and predictors of outcome 1 year post-trauma in patients admitted to sub-acute rehabilitation after severe traumatic brain injury. SUBJECTS: The study included 119 patients with severe traumatic brain injury admitted to centralized sub-acute rehabilitation in the Eastern part of Denmark during a 5-year period from 2005 to 2009. METHODS: Level of consciousness was assessed consecutively during rehabilitation and at 1 year post-trauma...

The various aspects of chemical crosslinking are addressed. Crosslinker reactivity, specificity, spacer arm length and solubility characteristics are detailed. Considerations for choosing one of these crosslinkers for a particular application are given as well as reaction conditions and practical tips for use of each category of crosslinkers.

In 1981-1982 urinary albumin excretion rates were determined in 211 diabetic and 216 non-diabetic subjects aged 60-74 years. By April 1992 122 diabetic and 58 non-diabetic probands had died. Dividing the two study populations at an albumin excretion rate of 15 micrograms/min showed that 69.3% of diabetic subjects with values at or above the limit, and 49.9% of those with values below (log rank test p = 0.0082) had died. The corresponding values for non-diabetic subjects were 44.4% and 21.0%, respectively (log rank test p = 0...

Uroflowmetry is important in the evaluation of prostatism. We have investigated 93 men, selected at random from the National Register, who had no subjective voiding problems but who fell within the appropriate age range. The sample was representative of the male metropolitan population. Uroflowmetry was carried out and the data are presented graphically in nomograms where the Q max/volume, Q average/volume and Q max time/volume relations are given. Flow variables were evaluated to delineate possible correlations to age...

The entire nasal mucosa from a patient with nasal allergy and hay fever was studied by the whole mount method, and the density of submucous glands was determined. Their density was essentially greater than in normal noses in all parts of the nose, especially on the conchae. This finding indicates that new-abnormal-glands form in the course of the disease, glands which also differ morphologically from the normally occurring glands. As this greatly increases the secretory capacity of the mucous membrane, there is a patho-anatomical basis for assuming that the nasal secretion in allergy is formed exclusively by the existing glands...

On 13 normal inferior and middle turbinates the mucous membrane was freed, stained by the PAS-alcian blue whole-mount method, and the mean density of glandular orifices was determined by counting in 4 mm2 fields. The median density fell in both turbinates in the anteroposterior direction, being in the inferior turbinate 8.2 glands/mm2 anteriorly, 7.9 in the middle, and 7.1 glands/mm2 posteriorly. In the middle turbinate it was 8.4 glands/mm2 anteriorly, 8.1 in the middle, and 7.3 glands/mm2 posteriorly. There were no significant differences in median density between the medial and lateral wall or between the superior and inferior half of the inferior or middle turbinate as a whole...

In 50 fetuses and premature infants between the ages of 11 and 23 weeks the entire nasal mucosa was dissected free and stained by the Osmium, the PAS or the PAS-alcian blue whole-mount method after which the nasal mucous glands were studied with special reference to density. In front on the septum and in the lateral wall density increases evenly and is by the 23rd week 28 glands per square mm. In the middle and at the back of the septum, where the glands develope later, the density is somewhat smaller by the 23rd week...
