  1. 1. Osteogenesis Imperfecta Genetic and Therapeutic Studies

    Author : Katarina Lindahl; Östen Ljunggren; Andreas Kindmark; Carl-Johan Rubin; David Sillence; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; OI; BMD; Genotype; Phenotype; Pharmaco-genetics; Bisphosphonate; Therapy; Gene-therapy; Mutation; Collagen; Collagen type I; Allele-specific silencing; siRNA; RNAi; COL1A1; COL1A2; Stroke; C-propeptide; Mineralization; Heterozygous disadvantage; Genetik; Genetics; Medicin; Medicine; Medicinsk genetik; Medical Genetics;

    Abstract : Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a heterogeneous disease of connective tissue, the cardinal symptom being fractures and severity ranging from mild to lethal. Dominant mutations in collagen I, encoded by COL1A1 and COL1A2, cause >90% of cases. READ MORE

  2. 2. Living with osteogenesis imperfecta

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Neurobiology, Care Sciences and Society

    Author : Veronica Balkefors; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2015]

    Abstract : Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) is a hereditary connective tissue disorder with fragility of the bones as the dominant symptom. There is no cure for OI, but symptoms are treated with medical, orthopaedic and physiotherapy methods. The disease group is very heterogeneous and knowledge about adults living with the milder forms, type I or IV is limited. READ MORE

  3. 3. The synergistic role of hierarchical macro- and mesoporous implant surface and microscopic view of enhanced osseointegration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Department of Materials and Environmental Chemistry, Stockholm University

    Author : Guang Han; Zhijian Shen; Anders Palmqvist; [2015]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Porosity; cell adhesion; cell proliferation; surface topography; implant; bone-implant interface; argon ion beam polishing; osteogenesis; osseointegration; materialkemi; Materials Chemistry;

    Abstract : The trend for designing of a titanium implant explored using different chemical compositions and crystallinity materials until people realized that the implant surface character was another important factor affecting the rate and extent of osseointegartion. Titanium received a macroporous titania surface layer by anodization, which contains open pores with average pore diameter around 5μm. READ MORE

    Abstract : Bone is a remarkable multifunctional tissue with the ability to regenerate and remodel without generating any scar tissue. However, bone loss due to injury or diseases can be a great challenge and affect the patient significantly. Transplanting bone graft from one site in the patient to the site of fracture or bone void, i.e. READ MORE

  5. 5. Bone Enhancement with BMP-2 for Safe Clinical Translation

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Marta Kisiel; Jöns Hilborn; Monica Wiig; Richard Oreffo; [2013]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bone repair; Bone healing; Bone morhogenetic protein-2; Osteogenesis; Extracelular matrix; Hyaluronan; Animal model; Orthopaedics; Ortopedi; Engineering Science with specialization in Materials Science; Teknisk fysik med inriktning mot materialvetenskap;

    Abstract : Bone morphogenetic protein-2 (BMP-2) is considered a promising adjuvant for the treatment of bone regeneration. However, BMP-2 delivery in a conventional collagen scaffold needs a high dose to achieve an effective outcome. Moreover, such dosage may lead to serious side effects. READ MORE
