      Background Postexercise cardiac troponin levels show considerable interindividual variations. This study aimed to identify the major determinants of this postexercise variation in cardiac troponin I (cTnI) following 3 ...
    • Endurance exercise training volume is not associated with progression of coronary artery calcification 

      Kleiven, Øyunn; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Omland, Torbjørn; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Frøysa, Vidar; Erevik, Christine B.; Greve, Ole Jacob; Melberg, Tor Harald; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Skadberg, Øyvind; Edvardsen, Thor; Ørn, Stein (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020-02)
      Background Recent cross‐sectional studies have suggested a dose‐dependent relationship between lifelong exposure to physical activity and the burden of calcified coronary artery disease (CAD). No longitudinal studies have ...
    • Occult obstructive coronary artery disease is associated with prolonged cardiac troponin elevation following strenuous exercise 

      Kleiven, Øyunn; Omland, Torbjørn; Skadberg, Øyvind; Melberg, Tor Harald; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Bergseth, Rolf; Greve, Ole Jacob; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Ørn, Stein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-06)
      Background Sudden cardiac death among middle-aged recreational athletes is predominantly due to myocardial ischaemia. This study examined whether measuring cardiac troponin I and T (cTnI and cTnT) after strenuous exercise ...
    • Race duration and blood pressure are major predictors of exercise-induced cardiac troponin elevation 

      Kleiven, Øyunn; Omland, Torbjørn; Skadberg, Øyvind; Melberg, Tor Harald; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Auestad, Bjørn Henrik; Bergseth, Rolf; Greve, Ole Jacob; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Ørn, Stein (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019-02)
      Background The underlying mechanisms of the exercise-induced increase in cardiac troponins (cTn) are poorly understood. The aim of this study was to identify independent determinants of exercise-induced cTn increase in a ...
    • Regular consumption of cod liver oil is associated with reduced basal and exercise-induced C-reactive protein levels; a prospective observational trial 

      Hansen, Mette Wærstad; Ørn, Stein; Erevik, Christine Bjørkvik; Bjørkavoll-Bergseth, Magnus; Skadberg, Øyvind; Melberg, Tor Harald; Aakre, Kristin Moberg; Kleiven, Øyunn (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2021-06)
      Background Dietary supplement use among recreational athletes is common, with the intention of reducing inflammation and improving recovery. We aimed to describe the relationship between omega-3 fatty acid supplement use ...
