      Bakgrunn: Det brukes milliarder av kroner på permanent og midlertidig uførhet i Norge og det er angitt at behovet for arbeidskraft vil overstige den tilgjengelige i fremtiden. Muskel- og skjelettlidelser er et stort nasjonalt ...
    • Low Back Pain With Persistent Radiculopathy; the Clinical Role of Genetic Variants in the Genes SOX5, CCDC26/GSDMC and DCC 

      Lie, Marie; Pedersen, Linda Margareth; Heuch, Ingrid; Winsvold, Bendik K S; Gjerstad, Johannes; Hasvik, Eivind Olay; Nygaard, Øystein Petter; Grotle, Margreth; Matre, Dagfinn; Zwart, John Anker Henrik; Nilsen, Kristian Bernhard (Frontiers in Genetics;January 2022 | Volume 12 | Article 757632, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2022-01-24)
      In a recently published genome-wide association study (GWAS) chronic back pain was associated with three loci; SOX5, CCDC26/GSDMC and DCC. This GWAS was based on a heterogeneous sample of back pain disorders, and it is ...
    • Macrophage migration inhibitory factor: A potential biomarker for chronic low back pain in patients with Modic changes 

      Gjefsen, Elisabeth; Gervin, Kristina; Goll, Guro Løvik; Bråten, Lars Christian Haugli; Wigemyr, Monica; Aass, Hans Christian Dalsbotten; Vigeland, Maria Dehli; Schistad, Ellina Iordanova; Pedersen, Linda Margareth; Pripp, Are Hugo; Storheim, Kjersti; Selmer, Kaja Kristine; Zwart, John Anker (RMD Open;Volume 7, Issue 2, Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-08-03)
      Background: Low back pain (LBP) is a leading cause of disability worldwide, but the aetiology remains poorly understood. Finding relevant biomarkers may lead to better understanding of disease mechanisms. Patients with ...
