  • Biomarkers of Extracellular Matrix Metabolism (MMP-9 and TIMP-1) and Risk of Stroke, Myocardial Infarction, and Cause-Specific Mortality : Cohort Study
  • 2011

    • Objective: Turnover of the extracellular matrix in all solid organs is governed mainly by a balance between the degrading matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) and their tissue inhibitors (TIMPs). An altered extracellular matrix metabolism has been implicated in a variety of diseases. We investigated relations of serum levels of MMP-9 and TIMP-1 to mortality risk from an etiological perspective.Design: The prospective Uppsala Longitudinal Study of Adult Men (ULSAM) cohort, followed from 1991-1995 for up to 18.1 years. A random population-based sample of 1,082 71-year-old men, no loss to follow-up. Endpoints were all-cause (n = 628), cardiovascular (n = 230), non-cardiovascular (n = 398) and cancer mortality (n = 178), and fatal or non-fatal myocardial infarction (n = 138) or stroke (n = 163).Results: Serum MMP-9 and TIMP-1 levels were associated with risk of all-cause mortality (Cox proportional hazard ratio [HR] per standard deviation 1.10, 95% confidence interval [CI] 1.03-1.19; and 1.11, 1.02-1.20; respectively). TIMP-1 levels were mainly related to risks of cardiovascular mortality and stroke (HR per standard deviation 1.22, 95% CI 1.09-1.37; and 1.18, 1.04-1.35; respectively). All relations except those of TIMP-1 to stroke risk were attenuated by adjustment for cardiovascular disease risk factors. Relations in a subsample without cardiovascular disease or cancer were similar to those in the total sample.Conclusion: In this community-based cohort of elderly men, serum MMP-9 and TIMP-1 levels were related to mortality risk. An altered extracellular matrix metabolism may be involved in several detrimental pathways, and circulating MMP-9 or TIMP-1 levels may be relevant markers thereof.

  • Peoples experience of the indoor climate in wind exposed apartments
  • 2010
  • Konferensbidrag (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Apartment buildings have been built in a wind exposed area situated close to the seaside in Malmö, Sweden. Several goals when building these apartments have been articulated, for example low energy usage, validation of the leakage factor and a satisfying indoor environment. The purpose of this study is to examine how the people living in the apartments experience the indoor climate. Their experience has been studied by a questionnaire. 201 persons have responded to the questionnaire. The overall result in terms of indoor climate and health experience shows a sufficient experience of the indoor climate. One interesting finding is that a factor related to the air-tightness; the experience of draught stands out. The apartments have also been divided into sub-groups and one finding has been that the people in the apartments exposed to wind, the outer layer of the city block, experience a doubled amount of draught compared to the people living inside the city block and sheltered from wind. The results may also be interpretated as that if a building is planned to be built in wind exposed surroundings this issue should be addressed and that a tight building is important to build, also for indoor climate reasons.
