    Abstract : Alcohol use disorder (AUD) is a complex neuropsychiatric disorder with high rates of mortality and morbidity. The currently available pharmacotherapies show varied efficacy, leading to the investigation of new neurochemical targets for alcohol. READ MORE

  2. 2. The calcitonin gene family of peptides : receptor expression and effects on bone cells

    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; CT family of peptides; osteoclast differentiation; bone resorption; CTR; CRLR; RAMPs; Cell biology; Cellbiologi;

    Abstract : The calcitonin gene family of peptides consists of calcitonin (CT), two calcitonin gene related peptides (α-CGRP, β-CGRP), adrenomedullin (ADM), amylin (AMY), three calcitonin receptor activating peptides (CRSP1-3) and intermedin/adrenomedullin2 (IMD). These peptides bind to one of two G protein -coupled receptors, the calcitonin receptor (CTR) or the calcitonin receptor-like receptor (CRLR). READ MORE

  3. 3. Calcitonin gene-related peptide in temporomandibular inflammation

    Author : Joakim Carleson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; CGRP; Calcitonin gene-related peptide; neuropeptides; inflammation; temporomandibular joint; masseter muscle; TMJ; TMD; nociception; scratching; neurogenic inflammation.;

    Abstract : Calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) is an important biological mediator and cell-signalling molecule, involved in modulation of the immune system, inflammatory response and pain modulation. During pain and inflammation, sensory nerves are activated, and sensory neuropeptides such as CGRP is released from peripheral and central nerve endings. READ MORE

  4. 4. Vasomotor symptoms in postmenopausal women : the role of acupuncture and calcitonin gene-related peptide

    Author : Yvonne Wyon; Britt-Marie Landgren; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : A majority of postmenopausal women experience vasomotor symptoms, which have a significant impact on the women's quality of life. Estrogens are the treatment of choice but can for different reasons not be used by all women. There is therefore a great need for viable alternative treatments. READ MORE
