AstraZeneca R and D, S 221 87 Lund, Sweden
Eur Respir J 39:839-45. 2012..These cross-sectional data showing associations between desmosines and several lung function variables suggest that desmosines, particularly U-desmosines, could be a useful biomarker of COPD status...
- Are 25 SNPs from the CARDIoGRAM study associated with ischaemic stroke?H Lovkvist
Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
Eur J Neurol 20:1284-91. 2013..Because common vascular risk factors are shared between CAD and ischaemic stroke (IS), these SNPs may also be related to IS overall or one or more of its pathogenetic subtypes...

Department of Cardiology, Lund University, Lund, Sweden
J Intern Med 272:573-82. 2012..Polymorphisms associated with atrial fibrillation (AF) have shown relatively large risk estimates, but the robustness of such estimates across populations and study designs has not been investigated...
