Risk of miscarriage in women with psychiatric disorders.
CONCLUSIONS: A wide range of psychiatric disorders were associated with increased risk of miscarriage. The heightened risk of miscarriage among women diagnosed with psychiatric disorders highlights the need for awareness and surveillance of this risk group in antenatal care.

Compensation claims after knee arthroplasty surgery in Norway 2008-2018.
Abstract Background and purpose - Orthopedic surgery is one of the specialties with most compensation claims. We assessed the claims following knee arthroplasty surgery reported to the Norwegian System of Patient Injury Compensation (NPE) in light of institutional procedure volume. Patients and methods - We collected data from NPE and the Norwegian Arthroplasty Register (NAR) for the study period (2008-2018). Age, sex, type of claim, and reason for compensation were collected from NPE, while the number of arthroplasty surgeries was collected from NAR. The treating hospitals were grouped by quartiles according to a...

Comparison of the mutation spectrum and association with pre and post treatment lipid measures of children with heterozygous familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) from eight European countries
Familial hypercholesterolaemia (FH) is commonly caused by mutation in the LDLR, APOB or PCSK9 genes, with untreated mean low density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) concentrations being elevated in APOB mutation carriers, even higher in LDLR mutation and highest in those with a PCSK9 mutation. Here we examine this in children with FH from Norway, UK, The Netherlands, Belgium, Czech Republic, Austria, Portugal and Greece. (Source: Atherosclerosis)

Clinical examination revealed a left-sided oculomotor palsy with an ipsilateral ptosis. Supplementary cerebral computer tomography with angiography and magnetic resonance imaging was normal except for lymphadenopathy in the neck and mediastinum. As the patient was homosexual, we chos...

[Immunosuppressive effect of mitomycin C-treated peripheral mononuclear blood cells (MICs) in vascularised composite allotransplantation].
Authors: Kiefer J, Diehm Y, Germann G, Kneser U, Terness P, Radu CA Abstract BACKGROUND: Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (VCA) enables the restoration of complex tissue defects. Since the first successful hand and face transplants were performed, clinical and experimental research has consistently improved immunosuppressive therapies. The incubation of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) with mitomycin C (MMC) results in immunomodulatory cells (MICs). In previous studies, the systemic application of MICs on the day of allogeneic hind limb transplantation led to a significant immunosuppression in r...

A call for change from impersonal risk assessment to a relational approach: professionals' reflections on the national guidelines for suicide prevention in mental health care in Norway.
CONCLUSIONS: We found that the emphasis on standardized suicide risk assessment has negatively influenced suicide prevention in mental healthcare, and an approach emphasizing relational aspects is recommended. However, the prevailing objectifying concept of knowledge, the epistemological debate and the emergence of the New Public Management ideology may obstruct a fundamental emphasis on relationships. A paradigm shift in mental healthcare is called for with respect to the concept of knowledge, which forms our understandings and practices.

Rituximab for the treatment of multiple sclerosis: a review
AbstractIn the last decades, evidence suggesting the direct or indirect involvement of B cells on multiple sclerosis (MS) pathogenesis has accumulated. The increased amount of data on the efficacy and safety of B-cell-depleting therapies from several studies has suggested the addition of these drugs as treatment options to the current armamentarium of disease modifying therapies (DMTs) for MS. Particularly, rituximab (RTX), a chimeric monoclonal antibody directed at CD20 positive B lymphocytes resulting in cell-mediated apoptosis, has been demonstrated to reduce inflammatory activity, incidence of relapses and new brain le...

Minimal transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from paediatric COVID-19 cases in primary schools, Norway, August to November 2020
An intense debate on school closures to control the COVID-19 pandemic is ongoing in Europe. We prospectively examined transmission of SARS-CoV-2 from confirmed paediatric cases in Norwegian primary schools between August and November 2020. All in-school contacts were systematically tested twice during their quarantine period. With preventive measures implemented in schools, we found minimal child-to-child (0.9%, 2/234) and child-to-adult (1.7%, 1/58) transmission, supporting that under 14 year olds are not the drivers of SARS-CoV-2 transmission.

A comparison of COVID-19 epidemiological indicators in Sweden, Norway, Denmark, and Finland.
Conclusions: COVID-19 pushed Sweden's health system to its capacity, exposed systemic weaknesses in the seniors' care system, and revealed challenges with implementing effective contact tracing and testing strategies while experiencing a high case burden. Looser government restrictions at the beginning of the outbreak are likely to have played a role in the impact of COVID-19 in Sweden. In an effort to improve epidemic control, Sweden has increased testing rates, implemented more restrictive prevention measures, and increased their intensive care unit bed capacity.

Increased Mortality in Hip Fracture Patients Living Alone: A NOREPOS Study
ABSTRACTHip fracture is associated with excess mortality, persisting for many years after the fracture. Several factors may affect survival; however, the role of social support has been less studied. Living situation could be an indicator of a person's social support, which predicts mortality in the general population. In this longitudinal cohort study, we considered whether living alone was a risk factor for post ‐hip fracture mortality compared with living with a partner. Information on hip fractures from all hospitals in Norway from 2002 to 2013 was combined with the 2001 National Population and Housing Census. The as...
