Dietary predictors of plasma total homocysteine concentration in the Hordaland Homocysteine Study
(Cambridge University Press, 2007)
Established dietary predictors of plasma total homocysteine (tHcy) include folate, riboflavin, and vitamins B6 and B12, while information is scarce regarding other dietary components. The aim of this study was to examine ...
Interferon-γ–induced inflammatory markers and the risk of cancer: The Hordaland Health Study
Background It has been reported that interferon-γ (IFN-γ)–induced inflammatory markers, such as circulating neopterin and kynurenine-to-tryptophan ratio (KTR), are increased in patients with cancer and ...
Smoking and body fat mass in relation to bone mineral density and hip fracture: The Hordaland Health Study
Lower bone mineral density (BMD) in smokers may be attributable to lower body weight or fat mass, rather than to a direct effect of smoking. We analyzed the effects of smoking exposure, assessed by plasma cotinine, and ...
Plasma Biomarkers of Inflammation, the Kynurenine Pathway, and Risks of All-Cause, Cancer, and Cardiovascular Disease Mortality. The Hordaland Health Study
(Oxford University Press, 2016)
We aimed to evaluate 10 biomarkers related to inflammation and the kynurenine pathway, including neopterin, kynurenine:tryptophan ratio, C-reactive protein, tryptophan, and 6 kynurenines, as potential predictors of all-cause ...
Markers of vitamin B6 status and metabolism as predictors of incident cancer: The Hordaland Health Study.
Dietary intake and/or circulating concentrations of vitamin B6 have been associated with risk of cancer, but results are inconsistent and mechanisms uncertain. Pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP) is the most commonly used marker ...
