      Opportunities to directly study the founding of a human population and its subsequent evolutionary history are rare. Using genome sequence data from 27 ancient Icelanders, we demonstrate that they are a combination of ...
    • Interaction between overweight and genotypes of HLA, TCF7L2, and FTO in relation to the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in adults and type 2 diabetes 

      Hjort, Rebecka; Löfvenborg, Josefin E.; Ahlqvist, Emma; Alfredsson, Lars; Andersson, Tomas; Grill, Valdemar Erik Robert; Groop, Leif; Sørgjerd, Elin Pettersen; Tuomi, Tiinamaija; Åsvold, Bjørn Olav; Carlsson, Sofia (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Objective We investigated potential interactions between body mass index (BMI) and genotypes of human leukocyte antigen (HLA), TCF7L2-rs7903146, and FTO-rs9939609 in relation to the risk of latent autoimmune diabetes in ...
    • Physical Activity, Genetic Susceptibility, and the Risk of Latent Autoimmune Diabetes in Adults and Type 2 Diabetes 

      Hjort, Rebecka; Ahlqvist, Emma; Andersson, Tomas; Alfredsson, Lars; Carlsson, Per-Ola; Grill, Valdemar Erik Robert; Groop, Leif; Martinell, Mats; Sørgjerd, Elin Pettersen; Tuomi, Tiinamaija; Åsvold, Bjørn Olav; Carlsson, Sofia (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Purpose Physical activity (PA) has been linked to a reduced risk of type 2 diabetes by reducing weight and improving insulin sensitivity. We investigated whether PA is associated with a lower incidence of latent autoimmune ...
