  1. 1. Cytokines and bone : On the role of IL-1 and IL-6 in bone metabolism

    Author : Eva Bornefalk; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Medical sciences; bone; cytokines; osteoporosis; cAMP; IL-1; IL-6; MEDICIN OCH VÅRD; MEDICINE; MEDICIN; Medicine; medicin;

    Abstract : Cytokines such as interleukin-1 (IL-l) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) have been implicated in the pathogenesis of postmenopausal osteoporosis. The regulation of cytokine release is unclear, and the mechanism of cytokine induced bone resorption remains to be elucidated. READ MORE

  2. 2. Cytokines in Metabolic Functions

    Author : Anna Benrick; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : IL-1; IL-6; LIF; obesity; fat mass; energy expenditure; hypothalamus; gp130 SNP; myocardial infarction;

    Abstract : During infections, circulating cytokines are largely produced by immune cells. In healthy obese individuals, large parts of these circulating cytokines are produced in adipose tissue, for instance by macrophages that have accumulated there. READ MORE

  3. 3. Inflammatory response in the immature brainafter hypoxia-ischemia. Application of microarray and transgenic technology

    Author : Maj Hedtjärn; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : ; hypoxia-ischemia; neonatal; brain; inflammation; cytokine; IL-1; IL-18; microglia; gene; microarray;

    Abstract : Hypoxic-ischemic (HI) brain injury remains a common problem encountered during theneonatal period, and it is a major cause of perinatal mortality and long term neurologicalimpairments. After HI, an inflammatory reaction is elicited in the brain, which is believedto contribute to the secondary progression of brain injury. READ MORE
