  1. 1. Experimental studies on fracture healing. Biological and biomechanical aspects

    Author : Hans Mark; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : fracture; intramembranous; endochondral; ossification; neovascularization; fracture fixation; fracture stability;

    Abstract : Considerable advances have been made in the knowledge regarding fracture healing and treatment duringrecent decades. Nevertheless, in 5-10 per cent of fractures, there are healing complications leading to complextreatment conditions, discomfort for patients and considerable costs. READ MORE

  2. 2. Identification and characterization of new mechanisms in cardiovascular estrogen signaling

    Author : Anders Holm; Kärlfysiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; endothelial cells; vascular smooth muscle cells; estrogen; GPR30 GPER1; inflammation; calcium; neovascularization; microtubule;

    Abstract : Women before menopause are protected from cardiovascular disease compared to age-matched men through mechanisms associated with the female sex hormone estrogen. There are three known estrogen receptors named ERα, ERβ and GPR30/GPER1, which are all three receptors are expressed in the cardiovascular system. READ MORE

  3. 3. Giant Cell Arteritis - Pathogenetic and Epidemiological Aspects

    Author : Karolina Larsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : giant cell arteritis; temporal arteritis; polymyalgia rheumatica; estrogen; MxA-protein; IFN type 1; Stereology; Neovascularization; immunocytochemistry;

    Abstract : Giant cell arteritis (GCA) is a chronic inflammatory disorder of medium-size and large arteries which affects people aged 50 years or older with a female preponderance. The two different expressions of GCA are temporal arteritis (TA) and polymyalgia rheumatica (PMR). READ MORE

  4. 4. New Roles of Filamins in Cell Signaling, Transcription and Organ Development

    Author : Xianghua Zhou; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : filamins; cell movement; hypoxia-inducible factor 1; proto-oncogene proteins c-met; mice; knockout; F-actin-binding proteins; integrins; GTB phosphohydrolases; genetic diseases; inborn; vascular endothelial cell growth factor A; Smad2 protein; hepatocyte growth factor; cartilage; osteogenesis; neovascularization; neoplasm metastasis;

    Abstract : Filamins are large actin-binding proteins that stabilize delicate three-dimensional actin networks and link them to cellular membranes. They integrate cell architectural and signaling functions and are essential for cell locomotion and development. READ MORE

  5. 5. Matrix metalloproteinases and their inhibitors in ocular neovascularization

    Author : Björn Steén; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Angiogenesis; Neovascularization; Retina; Bruch membrane; Cornea; MMP; TIMP; VEGF; In situ hybridization.;

    Abstract : Growth of pathological new vessels (angiogenesis) in the eye is a leading cause of severe vision-loss. Ocular angiogenesis is seen in the anterior part of the eye as in corneal neovascularization, or in the posterior part as in diabetic retinopathy, retinopathy of prematurity or age-related macular degeneration.
