​Press relase on new results on green space and respiratory problems

Results from an ongoing project assessing air pollution and green space "greenness" with data from the RHINESSA study was presented on the European Respiratory Society Congress in Paris Wednesday 19. september 2018. Ingrid Nordeide Kuiper (MD) from the Department of Occupational Medicine at Haukeland University Hospital and colleagues reported that children who have access to green spaces close to their homes have fewer respiratory problems, such as ashtma and wheezing in adulthood.

You can learn more about the study from the press relase from the European Lung Foundation and from the interview with Ingrid on the Norwegian Broadcasting Channel TV2

Zoonotic helminth exposure and risk of allergic diseases: A study of two generations in Norway

A study based on two generations in Bergen, Norway, show that IgG4 antibodies towards helminth worms (that have dogs and cats as their natural hosts) occur frequently in humans. Young people with these parasitic worm antibodies were four times more likely to have asthma and allergies than their peers without such antibodies, and the parent generation were generally unaffected.

Periodontal health status and lung function in two Norwegian cohorts

In this study, we report associations between periodontal health status, measured by Community Periodontal Index (CPI) and lung function in two generations (RHINESSA and ECRHS) in Bergen, Norway. We found that poor periodontal health was associatied with increasing airways obstruction within this realtively young and health population.

Agreement in reporting of asthma by parents or offspring - the RHINESSA generation study

In this study we analyzed agreement between reports of offspring asthma given by the offspring themselves and by the parents, and agreement between reports of parental asthma given by the parents themselves and by the offspring. We found that the reports on asthma given across generations showed an overall good agreement, and can thus be a useful tool in the absence of direct reports.
