  1. 1. Molecular regulators in cartilage and bone formation

    Author : Thomas Engstrand; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; cartilage; bone; TGF-beta; BMP; noggin; gene therapy; gene targeting; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Cartilage functions as a scaffold for bone formation during development. This process, endochondral ossification, is regulated by systemic hormones and local growth factors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Craniofacial bone reconstruction with Bone Morphogenetic Protein-2

    Author : Ann-Charlott Docherty Skogh; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; bone morphogenetic protein;

    Abstract : Bone defects in the craniofacial area are a clinical challenge and can be the result of trauma, tumour resection or congenital malformations. The golden standard for reconstruction is autologous bone grafts, but bone may not always be readily available and donor-site morbidity might follow. READ MORE

  3. 3. Role of Bone Morphogenetic Proteins for Catecholaminergic Neurons in Vivo : Use of the Tyrosine Hydroxylase Locus for Cell-Specific inactivation of Signal Transduction

    Author : Dmitry Usoskin; Ted Ebendal; Ernest Arenas; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Neurosciences; Tyrosine Hydroxylase; Bone Morphogenetic Proteins BMP ; Transforming Growth Factor-β TGF-β ; tissue-specific knockout; Parkinson s disease; Neurovetenskap; Neurology; Neurologi;

    Abstract : Members of the Transforming Growth factor-β (TGF-β) superfamily and its subclass Bone Morphogenetic Proteins (BMP) play important roles for nervous system development. In order to study the BMP role for catecholaminergic neurons in vivo, we generated three knock-in mice, expressing the transgenes specifically in the targeting cells. READ MORE

  4. 4. Allograft bone in hip revision: the effect of locally applied pharmacological treatment

    Author : Ola Belfrage; Lund Ortopedi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; allograft bone; bone transplantation; bisphosphonate; bone morphogenetic proteins; hip revision; radiostereometric analysis;

    Abstract : The clinical success of primary hip replacement is paramount but the need for revisions will continue to increase due to the increasing number of operated individuals. In Sweden, the number of hip revisions in 2012 exceeded 2,300. During implant loosening, some of the bone in the femur is lost, which can make the revision more difficult. READ MORE

  5. 5. The Anabolic - Anti-catabolic Paradigm of Augmenting Skeletal Regeneration: A Bone Quality Perspective

    Author : Neashan Mathavan; Avdelningen för Biomedicinsk teknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bone fracture; Fracture healing; bone quality; Bone biomechanics; bone morphogenetic protein-7; Zoledronate; skeletal regeneration;

    Abstract : Successful fracture repair is a complex series of coordinated processes leading to regeneration of new bone to bridge the fracture site, remodelling of the newly formed bone and restoration of skeletal function. Disruption of these processes occurs in approximately 10% of all fractures and leads to delayed or failed healing requiring surgical interventions, increased complication rates, prolonged rehabilitation and high morbidity.
