    A Asberg
    Dept of Clinical Chemistry, Trondheim University Hospital, Norway
    Scand J Gastroenterol 37:719-24. 2002
    ..However, the benefit of screening depends on the morbidity of HH. We have compared the morbidity in HH persons detected by screening with the morbidity in the rest of the population...

    A Asberg
    Dept of Clinical Chemistry, Trondheim University Hospital, Norway
    Scand J Gastroenterol 37:1212-9. 2002
    ..Screening has been recommended, but the benefit of population-based screening has never been shown in a randomized clinical trial. In this article, we estimate the benefit of screening young men, using a theoretical model...
