Abstract
INTRODUCTION: This paper analyses the development in the incidence of injuries in day care institutions for children below school age in Denmark 1989-1997. MATERIAL: Data on injuries were collected from the injury register, which covers around 15 per cent of the Danish population. The population data derive from Statistics Denmark. METHOD: Incidence patterns were analysed by means of linear regressions and comparisons of means. RESULTS: Injuries in day care institutions for children below school age have increased sharply during the 1990s. In children aged 1-6, the 3-6-year-olds had a higher incidence and the boys a significantly higher incidence of injury than the girls. DISCUSSION: The increase in injuries is to some extent explained by a higher attendance at day care institutions. The hypothesis that the rising incidence is partly due to an increase in the tendency to seek emergency department treatment in the event of minor injuries cannot be ruled out, as minor injuries almost solely account for the rise.

Abstract
To assess the cost-effectiveness of denosumab versus other treatments in men with osteoporosis who are =75years old from a payer perspective in Sweden.
A lifetime cohort Markov model was developed with seven health states: well, hip fracture, vertebral fracture, other osteoporotic fracture, post-hip fracture, post-vertebral fracture, and dead. During each cycle, patients could have a fracture, remain healthy, remain in a post-fracture state or die. Background fracture risks, mortality rates, persistence rates, utilities, medical and drug costs were derived using published sources. Estimates of fracture efficacy were drawn from available studies in post-menopausal osteoporotic (PMO) women as BMD improvements have been shown to be similar across male osteoporosis (MOP) and PMO populations, and a recent clinical trial suggested that the fracture risk reduction from bisphosphonate therapy in men is similar to that seen in women in comparable studies. Lifetime expected costs and quality-adjusted life-years (QALYs) were estimated for denosumab, generic alendronate, generic risedronate, ibandronate, zoledronate, strontium ranelate and teriparatide. On average, patients in the model were 78years old, with bone mineral density T-score at the femoral neck of -2.12. Prevalent vertebral fractures were present in 23% of patients. In the base-case, the model assumed that patients would experience treatment-related effects up to 2years after discontinuation. Costs and QALYs were discounted at 3% annually. Extensive sensitivity analyses were conducted.
Total lifetime costs for denosumab, alendronate, strontium ranelate, zoledronate, risedronate, ibandronate and teriparatide were €31,004, €33,731, €34,788, €34,796, €34,826, €35,983 and €37,461, respectively. Total QALYs were 5.23, 5.15, 5.15, 5.17, 5.13, 5.12 and 5.22, respectively. Compared to other treatments, denosumab had the lowest costs and highest QALYs. In the one-way sensitivity analyses, when compared to alendronate (next least expensive strategy), the ICER for denosumab was most sensitive to the relative risk of hip fracture on denosumab. The probability of denosumab being cost-effective compared to the other treatments at a threshold of €66,000/QALY was 96.1%.
Denosumab dominated all comparators, including generic bisphosphonates, in the treatment of osteoporosis in men who were =75years old in Sweden.

Abstract
Measurements of nitrogen dioxide using the Palmes diffusion tubes in Uummannaq, Aasiaat, and Nuuk. all located along the west-coast of Greenland, have demonstrated that the levels of pollution at the most heavily impacted sites are comparable to levels in much larger towns in Denmark. The highest concentrations were, in general, observed near sites influenced by car traffic (peak concentrations of up to 16 ppbv), medium concentrations were observed in the residential areas (2 6 ppbv), and very low levels were found at the background locations in the town outskirts (1-2 ppbv). Observations of nitrogen dioxide concentrations less than 0.1 ppbv at a remote site, Akia, 25 km from Nuuk, indicate that, compared to local sources, long-range transport of nitrogen dioxide is not important in western Greenland.
