Article
Full-text available
Objectives Information about lifestyle factors in register-based occupational health studies is often not available. The objective of this study was therefore to develop gender, age and calendar-time specific job-exposure matrices (JEMs) addressing five selected lifestyle characteristics across job groups as a tool for lifestyle adjustment in regis...
Article
Full-text available
Objectives Determining exposure to occupational factors by workers’ job titles is extensively used in epidemiological research. However, the correspondence of findings regarding associations to health between job exposure matrices (JEMs) and individual-level exposure data is largely unknown. We set out to examine the prospective associations of phy...
Article
This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: To assess the benefits and harms of aluminium adjuvants used in a vaccine or an excipient versus the same vaccine or excipient, but having a different type of aluminium adjuvant formulation, or a different concentration, or with a different particle size.
Article

Objective The aim of this study was to investigate whether night work expressed by number and duration of night shifts, number of consecutive night shifts, and number of quick returns during the first 20 weeks of pregnancy is a risk factor for hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP). Methods The study population comprised Danish workers in public...

This is a protocol for a Cochrane Review (Intervention). The objectives are as follows: To assess the benefits and harms of aluminium adjuvants used in vaccines versus placebo or no intervention, taking into consideration the type of the vaccine, and the type, size and concentration of aluminium adjuvant. © 2017 The Cochrane Collaboration.

Objectives To develop a job-exposure matrix (JEM) addressing smoking to allow for confounder adjustment in register-based occupational health studies. Methods We combined and harmonised questionnaire and interview data on smoking from several Danish cohort studies and surveys in the time-period 1981–2013 for 2 64 054 employees registered with a DI...
Conference Paper
Objectives Age at permanent retirement is of interest both from an occupational health perspective as an indicator of health risks and from a societal perspective, where keeping an ageing population at work is a priority. The Danish nationwide individual level database DOC*X includes labour market affiliation and job type for employed residents in...
Conference Paper
Objective Few studies investigated hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) in relation to work at night with inconclusive results and crude exposure assessment. Our aim is to investigate the risk of HDP after work at night during pregnancy based on objective exposure assessment from The Danish Working Hour Database (DWHD), which contains informat...
Article
Objective: To examine the risk of preterm birth following physically strenuous work during pregnancy. Methods: We included 343 pregnant women referred to an occupational clinic. Data on preterm birth and covariates were retrieved from the Danish Birth Registry. Risk estimates were computed by logistic regression using a population sample of gain...
Article
Full-text available
Background: More than 20 years ago, it was hypothesized that exposure to prenatal and early postnatal environmental xenobiotics with the potential to disrupt endogenous hormone signaling might be on the causal path to cryptorchidism, hypospadias, low sperm count and testicular cancer. Several consensus statements and narrative reviews in recent ye...
Article
DOC*X is a Danish nationwide individual level database on exposures in the occupational environment containing information on labour market affiliation, industry, and job type, covering all work active residents in Denmark from 1970 to 2012, around 6.2 million people. DOC*X is an open research database, aiming to provide access to high quality data...
Article
Objective Studies on the risk of preterm birth among women exposed to heavy lifting during pregnancy have provided conflicting results, and data on high-level exposures are limited. We addressed this limitation in a prospective cohort study on preterm birth among women with more extreme levels of ergonomic hazards at work, especially lifting. Meth...
Article
In a prospective cohort study, the association between maternal vitamin D status during pregnancy and offspring forearm fractures during childhood and adolescence was analysed in 30 132 mother and child pairs recruited to the Danish National Birth Cohort between 1996 and 2002. Data on characteristics, dietary factors and lifestyle factors were coll...
Article
Full-text available
Limited evidence exists for an association between maternal diet during pregnancy and offspring bone health. In a prospective study, we examined the association between dietary patterns in mid-pregnancy and offspring forearm fractures. In total, 101,042 pregnancies were recruited to the Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC) during 1996–2002. Maternal...

Studies investigating the association between maternal vitamin D status and offspring bone mass measured by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) during childhood have shown conflicting results. We used occurrence of bone fractures up to the age of 18 as a measure reflecting offspring bone mass and related that to maternal vitamin D status. The Da...
Article
Background: Vitamin D is obtained from dietary sources and synthesized in the skin during exposure to ultraviolet B radiation in sunlight. During pregnancy, vitamin D is transported from mother to fetus through the placenta in the form of 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D]. There is evidence that vitamin D influences neuronal differentiation, endocrine...
Article
Objectives To elucidate the research possibilities when merging data from the Danish National Birth Cohort (DNBC) and the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort Study (MoBa), through comparison of 1) the methodology used for dietary assessment and 2) the estimated intake of selected food groups in the two cohorts.DesignQualitative and quantitative compa...
Article
Full-text available
Objective: To develop a basis for building models that can examine the impact of organic food (OF) choices on maternal and offspring health, including identification of factors associated with OF consumption and underlying dietary patterns. Design: Dietary intake was collected for the preceding month from an FFQ in mid-pregnancy and information...
Article
The relation between maternal peanut intake during pregnancy and allergic disease development in children has been controversial. We used data from the Danish National Birth Cohort to examine associations between maternal peanut and tree nut intake during pregnancy and allergic outcomes in children at 18 months and 7 years of age. We estimated mate...

Vitamin D deficiency during pregnancy has been associated with the development of several adverse health outcomes, e.g., pre-eclampsia, gestational diabetes mellitus, preterm delivery, low birth weight, birth length, and bone mineral content. The aims of the present study were to estimate the intake and sources of vitamin D in Danish pregnant women...
Conference Paper
Background: Recent evidence suggests that maternal supplementation of folic acid during pregnancy may play a role in the development of wheezing and asthma among offspring, potentially through epigenetic mechanisms.

Sugar-sweetened soft drinks have been linked to a number of adverse health outcomes such as high weight gain. Therefore, artificially sweetened soft drinks are often promoted as an alternative. However, the safety of artificial sweeteners has been disputed, and consequences of high intakes of artificial sweeteners for pregnant women have been minim...
