  1. 1. The involvement of the TNF-alpha system in skeletal muscle in response to marked overuse

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå universitet

    Author : Lina Renström; Umeå universitet.; Umeå universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TNF-alpha; TNFR1; TNFR2; muscle damage; myositis; peritendinous tissue; tendinopathy;

    Abstract : Painful conditions having the origin within the musculoskeletal system is a common cause for people to seek medical care. Between 20-40% of all visits to the primal care in Sweden are coupled to pain from the musculoskeletal system. Muscle pain and impaired muscle function can be caused by muscles being repetitively overused and/or via heavy load. READ MORE

  2. 2. Studies in sporadic inclusion body myositis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Snjólaug Arnardóttir; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2003]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; s-IBM; muscle fibre regeneration; cytoskeleton; IVIg; muscle inflammtion; cytokine; training; sensibility; neuropathy ;

    Abstract : Aims: The general aims of the present study were to increase the understanding of the disease process in s-lBM by analysing the cytoskeletal structure in muscle fibres and their regeneration potential; and also to evaluate sensory function in patients with s-IBM to test the hypothesis of an associated neurogenic component or a concomitant neuropathy in s-IBM; and to evaluate therapeutic options by analysing the effect of IVIg treatment on the muscle inflammation; and to evaluate the effect of training on muscle function and muscle inflammation. Patients: Twenty-six patients with the diagnosis of s41BM participated in these studies. READ MORE

  3. 3. Epidemiologic studies on rheumatic muscle inflammation, myositis

  4. 4. Immune mechanisms in chronic rheumatic muscle inflammation, myositis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Medicine, Solna

    Author : Quan Tang; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : The idiopathic inflammatory myopathies (IIM), shortly named myositis, is a group of heterogeneous and rare autoimmune diseases with the target tissue of skeletal muscle. It is not curable and affects the daily life of patients. The treatment of myositis is mainly glucocorticoids in combination with immunosuppressive agents. READ MORE

  5. 5. Studies of immunopathogenic mechanisms and treatment of chronic, inflammatory myopathies, myositis

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Medicine

    Author : Maryam Dastmalchi; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2007]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Idiopathic inflammatory myopathies; polymyositis; dermatomyositis; IVIg; infliximab treatment; physical training; muscle biopsy;

    Abstract : p>Polymyosit (PM), dermatomyositis (DM) and sporadic inclusion body myositis (sIBM) are chronic inflammatory myopathies which are characterized by muscle weakness, fatigue and extra-muscular involvement. Mononuclear inflammatory cells are typically found in muscle tissue. READ MORE
