Multivariable Cox regression models were adjus...
Background: Workup of suspected lung cancer is associated with severe psychosocial distress, and breaking bad news is challenging. Providing the result of cancer workup by telephone is generally not recommended, yet several studies support the use of telephone in cancer follow-up, palliation and counselling. We wanted to investigate whether psychosocial consequences of receiving a final result of diagnostic lung cancer workup were affected by type of disclosure, ie. telephone versus in-person. M...

Abstract Introduction Eosinophilia may cause organ dysfunction, but an exact relation between eosinophil blood counts and adverse outcomes has not been described. The aim of the study is to associate in one model both normal and increased blood eosinophil counts to the subsequent development of common conditions in internal medicine, in which eosinophil granulocytes may play a role for the symptoms. Methods From the Copenhagen Primary Care Differential Count ( CopDiff ) Database, we identified 3...
