    Abstract : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is characterized by persistent inflammation, progressive joint damage and disability. This thesis describes the outcome after 10 years in a cohort of 183 RA patients (116 women, 67 men) recruited 1985-89. The mean age was 51 years and symptom duration 11 months at inclusion.

  3. 3. Joint disease biomarkers - discovery and application

    Author : Dovilė Sinkevičiūtė; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Osteoarthritis; Psoriatic arthritis; cartilage; Proteomics; Biomarkers; ELISA; Tissue culture; Extracellular matrix ECM ;

    Abstract : Dysregulated cartilage homeostasis, articular cartilage degradation and abnormal bone remodeling are common denominators in joint disease and can lead to severe disability for the patients. The molecular pathways behind the disease pathology can overlap across different joint diseases. READ MORE

  4. 4. Chronic musculoskeletal pain: a multifactorial process

    Author : Stefan Bergman; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; widespread; SF-36; risk factors; rheumatoid arthritis; pain; musculoskeletal; epidemiology; fibromyalgia; Skeleton; muscle system; rheumatology locomotion; Skelett; muskelsystem; reumatologi;

    Abstract : The aim was to study prevalence, assessment methods, and risk factors of chronic musculoskeletal pain, as well as effects on health status in a general population setting. A postal survey to a representative sample of 3928 subjects aged 20–74 years in 2 municipalities on the west coast of Sweden was followed by clinical examinations of selected subjects, and a three-year follow up survey to 2425 subjects who answered completely to the first.
