      Risk factors that contribute to inter-individual differences in the age-of-onset of allergic diseases are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to identify genetic risk variants associated with the age at which ...
    • Comparison of pre‐ and post‐bronchodilator lung function as predictors of mortality: The HUNT Study 

      Bhatta, Laxmi; Leivseth, Linda; Carslake, David; Langhammer, Arnulf; Mai, Xiao-Mei; Chen, Yue; Henriksen, Anne Hildur; Brumpton, Ben Michael (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
      Background and objective Post‐bronchodilator (BD) lung function is recommended for the diagnosis of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). However, often only pre‐BD lung function is used in clinical practice or ...
    • GOLD Classifications, COPD Hospitalization, and All-Cause Mortality in Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease: The HUNT Study 

      Bhatta, Laxmi; Leivseth, Linda; Mai, Xiao-Mei; Henriksen, Anne Hildur; Carslake, David; Chen, Yue; Langhammer, Arnulf; Brumpton, Ben Michael (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      Purpose: The Global Initiative for Chronic Obstructive Lung Disease (GOLD) has published three classifications of COPD from 2007 to 2017. No studies have investigated the ability of these classifications to predict ...
    • The Association of Bone Mineral Density with Mortality in a COPD Cohort. The HUNT Study, Norway 

      Vikjord, Sigrid Anna; Brumpton, Ben Michael; Mai, Xiao-Mei; Bhatta, Laxmi; Vanfleteren, Lowie E.G.W.; Langhammer, Arnulf (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      In individuals with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), the presence of comorbidities is associated with increased mortality risk. We wanted to study the association between bone mineral density (BMD) and mortality ...
