Studies

  • Pregnancy, Heredity, and Environment: Population-based, case-control study of all Norwegian babies with oral clefts born live from 1996 to 2001.
  • Cancer risk in families of children with birth defects: Cohort study of cancer risk among all individuals with birth defects in Norway and Sweden and their parents and siblings
  • Birth characteristics in relation to cancer among children and adolescents: Population-based Norwegian cohort study, with data from the medical birth and cancer registries of Norway
  • Metabolic syndrome and cancer (Me-Can): Population-based cohort study (with participating cohorts from Norway, Sweden and Austria) of the relation between factors in the metabolic syndrome and cancer risk
