  1. 1. Intra-articular Glucocorticoid Treatment : Efficacy and Side Effects

    Author : Tomas Weitoft; Lars Rönnblom; Ronald vanVollenhoven; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Medicine; arthritis; intra-articular glucocorticoid; triamcinolone hexacetonide; arthrocentesis; bone metabolism; cartilage; cortisol; ACTH; joint infection; Medicin; Dermatology and venerology; clinical genetics; internal medicine; Dermatologi och venerologi; klinisk genetik; invärtesmedicin;

    Abstract : Intra-articular glucocorticoid injection therapy is frequently used to relieve symptoms of arthritis, but there is considerable variation in injection routines among physicians. One issue of debate concerns the importance of synovial fluid aspiration during the injection procedure. READ MORE

  2. 2. Metabolism of articular cartilage proteoglycans in vitro : effects of synovial membrane products and mechanical pressure

    Author : Agneta Klämfeldt; Umeå universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Articular cartilage; Proteoglycan metabolism; Synovial membrane products; Mechanical stress; Indom ethacin; Glucocorticoids; Prostaglandins; Osteoarthritis; Rheumatoid arthritis;

    Abstract : The effect of synovial membrane products and mechanical pressure upon the metabolism of articular cartilage proteoglycans has been studied in vitro. The degradation of cartilage proteoglycans was studied in an organ culture system and measured as the release of [35S ] sulphate from prelabelled cartilage. READ MORE

  3. 3. Maturation-dependent normal and injury-induced changes in rabbit knee articular cartilage

    Author : Xiaochun Wei; Leif Ryd; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : rabbit; development; maturation; knee joint; articular cartilage; osteochondral defect; cartilage repair; joint fluid; subchondral bone volume fraction; proteoglycan fragment; transforming growth factor-ß; biomechanics; indentation; histology; hlstomorphometry; MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Cartilage injuries are common in sports, and may on the long term develop to osteoarthritis. Prosthetic joint replacement is not satisfactory for young active individuals with extended cartilage injuries in large weight-bearing joints. In these cases, a treatment is needed which reestablishes normal joint surfaces by biologic means. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cartilage Tissue Engineering; the search for chondrogenic progenitor cells and associated signalling pathways

    Author : Maria Thornemo; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : stem cell; progenitor cell; tissue engineering; cartilage; articular chondrocytes;

    Abstract : The socioeconomic cost of articular cartilage related diseases in the Western world is very high. The suffering of the individual patient is even more problematic. READ MORE

  5. 5. Contrast-enhanced MRI of human knee cartilage Clinical applications of the novel dGEMRIC technique to study glycosaminoglycan content in articular cartilage

    Author : Carl Johan Tiderius; Ortopedi - klinisk och molekylär osteoporosforskning; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surgery; orthopaedics; traumatology; Kirurgi; ortopedi; traumatologi; exercise; osteoarthritis; anterior cruciate ligament; glycosaminoglycan; MRI; cartilage; dGEMRIC; knee;

    Abstract : Delayed gadolinium-enhanced MRI of cartilage (dGEMRIC) is a new technique to study cartilage glycosaminoglycan (GAG) content. The negatively charged contrast agent Gd-DTPA2-, injected intravenously, distributes in the cartilage inversely to the likewise negatively charged GAG. READ MORE
