  1. 1. Soft tissue integration to dental implants

    Author : Maria Welander; Göteborgs universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; connective tissue; dental implants; epithelium; gold alloy; histology; peri-implant mucosa; subcrestal placement; titanium; zirconia;

    Abstract : Soft tissue integration is a prerequisite for implant success. The role of the soft tissue barrier at implants is to provide an effective seal that protects the underlying bone and prevents access for microorganisms and their products. READ MORE

  2. 2. Connective tissue contraction in wound healing : An experimental study in vivo and in vitro

    Author : M. Reza Ghassemifar; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Contraction of connective tissue is an important part of tissue repair that reduces the wound space and helps to decrease the formation of scar tissue, both of which are needed to restore tissue integrity. In the present study, certain cellular mechanisms that are active during connective tissue contraction were assessed and the influence of transforming growth factor-. READ MORE

  3. 3. Stimulation of wound healing in connective tissue : An experimental study using the perforated rat mesentery

    Author : Per Malcherek; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICINE; MEDICIN;

    Abstract : Different aspects of wound healing in connective tissue were studied in the perloratedrat- mesentery model after mast cell activation and treatment with epidermal growth factor (EGF). This wound model is considered to reflect pure connective tissue repair. READ MORE

  4. 4. Fibromodulin and chondroadherin in connective tissue homeostasis

    Author : Viveka Tillgren; Reumatologi och molekylär skelettbiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Collagen; integrin; cell surface proteoglycan; extracellular matrix; and small leucine-rich repeat proteoglycan.;

    Abstract : Connective tissue contains a prominent extracellular matrix (ECM), which provides for physiological and mechanical properties. Intra- and inter-molecular interactions between proteins in this ECM provide for the formation of molecular networks. These interactions determine the shape of the tissue as well as cell behavior.

  5. 5. Integrin αVβ3-Directed Contraction by Connective Tissue Cells : Role in Control of Interstitial Fluid Pressure and Modulation by Bacterial Proteins

    Author : Åsa Lidén; Kristofer Rubin; Karl-Eric Magnusson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Biochemistry; interstitial fluid pressure; collagen gel contraction; integrin αVβ3; septic shock; fibronectin; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Biokemi;

    Abstract : This thesis aimed at studying mechanisms involved in control of tissue fluid homeostasis during inflammation.The interstitial fluid pressure (PIF) is of importance for control of tissue fluid balance. A lowering of PIF in vivo will result in a transport of fluid from the circulation into the tissue, leading to edema. READ MORE
