    • This case-control study based in Nordic serum banks evaluated the joint effects of infections with genital human papillomavirus (HPV) types, and Chlamydia trachomatis in the aetiology of cervical squamous cell carcinoma. Through a linkage with the cancer registries, 144 cases were identified and 420 controls matched to them. Exposure to past infections was defined by the presence of specific IgG antibodies. The odds ratio (OR) for the second-order interaction of HPV16, HPV6/11 and C. trachomatis was small (1.0) compared to the expected multiplicative OR, 57, and the additive OR, 11. The interactions were not materially different among HPV16 DNA-positive squamous cell carcinomas. When HPV16 was replaced with HPV18/33 in the analysis of second-order interactions with HPV6/11 and C. trachomatis, there was no evidence of interaction, the joint effect being close to the expected additive OR. Possible explanations for the observed antagonism include misclassification, selection bias or a true biological phenomenon with HPV6/11 and C. trachomatis exposures antagonizing the carcinogenic effects of HPV16.

  • Chlamydial antibodies and risk of prostate cancer
  • 2005
  • Ingår i: Cancer Epidemiology Biomarkers & Prevention. - : American Association for Cancer Research. - 1538-7755. ; 14:2, s. 385-9
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • Objective: We assessed the risk of prostate cancer by exposure to Chlamydia trachomatis. Method: Seven hundred thirty eight cases of prostate cancer and 2,271 matched controls were identified from three serum sample banks in Finland, Norway, and Sweden by linkage to the population based cancer registries. Results: A statistically significant inverse association (odds ratio, 0.69; 95% confidence interval, 0.51-0.94) was found. It was consistent by different serotypes and there was a consistent dose-response relationship. Conclusion: C. trachomatis infection is not likely to increase the risk of prostate cancer. Whether the inverse relationship is true or due to difficulties in measuring the true exposure in prostatic tissue by serology, confounders or other sources of error remain open.

  • Lipoprotein(a), Chlamydia pneumoniae, leptin and tissue plasminogen activator as risk markers for valvular aortic stenosis.
  • 2003
  • Ingår i: European Heart Journal. - 0195-668X .- 1522-9645. ; 24:2, s. 198-208
  • Tidskriftsartikel (refereegranskat)abstract
    • AIMS: The aim of the present study was to identify risk markers for the development of valvular aortic stenosis (AS). Lipoprotein(a) (Lp(a)) and Chlamydia pneumoniae IgG antibody titres in plasma and in circulating immune complexes as well as leptin and tissue plasminogen activator (t-PA) in plasma were studied.METHODS AND RESULTS: One hundred and one patients (41 women and 60 men, mean age 71+/-8 years) with significant AS and 101 age- and sex-matched controls were included in this study. All patients underwent aortic valve replacement at the University Hospital in Umeå, Sweden. The controls had no symptoms of cardiovascular disease and they were examined echocardiographically. An Lp(a) level >or=480 mg x l(-1), a C. pneumoniae-specific IgG titre >or=1/128, a high leptin level and a high t-PA mass concentration in plasma were identified as risk markers for AS. A strong synergism between Lp(a) and C. pneumoniae IgG antibodies in circulating immune complexes was found.CONCLUSION: Our data indicate that a chronic C. pneumoniae infection and a high plasma Lp(a) level might influence and aggravate aortic heart valve sclerosis via the formation of circulating immune complexes. The present study also strongly suggests an association between high plasma leptin, t-PA mass concentration and AS.
