    • Cardiac function associated with previous, current and repeated depression and anxiety symptoms in a healthy population: the HUNT study. 

      Gustad, Lise; Bjerkeset, Ottar; Strand, Linn B; Janszky, Imre; Salvesen, Øyvind; Dalen, Håvard (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2016)

      Excessive daytime sleepiness (EDS) affects 10–20% of the population and is associated with substantial functional deficits. Here, we identify 42 loci for self-reported daytime sleepiness in GWAS of 452,071 individuals from ...
    • Is having asthma associated with an increased risk of dying from cardiovascular disease? A prospective cohort study of 446 346 Taiwanese adults 

      Strand, Linn B; Tsai, Min Kuang; Wen, Chi Pang; Chang, Shu-Sen; Brumpton, Ben Michael (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2018)
      Objectives A significant proportion of cardiovascular disease (CVD) cannot be explained by well-known risk factors such as high cholesterol, hypertension and diabetes. One potential novel risk factor for CVD is asthma. We ...

    • Symptoms of anxiety and depression and risk of atrial fibrillation-the HUNT study 

      Feng, Tingting; Malmo, Vegard; Laugsand, Lars Erik; Strand, Linn B; Gustad, Lise; Ellekjær, Hanne; Loennechen, Jan Pål; Mukamal, Kenneth; Janszky, Imre (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2019)
