  1. 1. The Anabolic - Anti-catabolic Paradigm of Augmenting Skeletal Regeneration: A Bone Quality Perspective

    University dissertation from Department of Biomedical Engineering, Lund university

    Author : Neashan Mathavan; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017-05-08]
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bone fracture; Fracture healing; bone quality; Bone biomechanics; bone morphogenetic protein-7; Zoledronate; skeletal regeneration;

    Abstract : Successful fracture repair is a complex series of coordinated processes leading to regeneration of new bone to bridge the fracture site, remodelling of the newly formed bone and restoration of skeletal function. Disruption of these processes occurs in approximately 10% of all fractures and leads to delayed or failed healing requiring surgical interventions, increased complication rates, prolonged rehabilitation and high morbidity.

  2. 2. Effects of antiresorptive agents on inflammation and bone regeneration in different osseous sites - experimental and clinical studies

    University dissertation from Göteborg : Göteborgs universitet

    Author : Carina Cardemil; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2014]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Qntiresorptive agents; ovariectomised rat; osteoporosis; skeletal site; differences osteonecrosis of the jaw; osseointegration; bone substitute; inflammation; bone regeneration; gene expression; histomorphometry; Micro-CT; antiresorptive agents; skeletal site differences; osteonecrosis of the jaw;

    Abstract : The biological mechanisms involved in bone regeneration in osteoporotic bone and the effect of antiresorptive drugs in relation to surgically inserted biomaterials are not fully understood. Improved osseointegration of titanium implants but also adverse effects of antiresorptive therapies, such as osteonecrotic jaw have been described in the literature. READ MORE

  3. 3. Satellite cells in human skeletal muscle molecular identification quantification and function

    University dissertation from Umeå : Umeå University

    Author : Mona Lindström; Umeå universitet.; [2009]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; satellite cell markers; NCAM; Pax7; MyoD; myogenin; DLK1 FA1; c-Met; human skeletal muscle; immunohistochemistry; muscle growth; muscle hypertrophy; MEDICINE Morphology; cell biology; pathology; MEDICIN Morfologi; cellbiologi; patologi; anatomi; Human Anatomy;

    Abstract : Skeletal muscle satellite cells located between the plasma membrane and the basal lamina of muscle fibres, could for many years, only be studied in situ by electron microscopy. The introduction of immunohistochemistry and the discovery of molecular markers of satellite cells then made them accessible for light microscopic studies and a wealth of information is today available.

  4. 4. Molecular mechanisms of salamander limb regeneration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Gonçalo M. Brito; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2018]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Salamanders, like newts and axolotls, stand out among adult vertebrates for their outstanding capacity to regenerate whole body parts and restore complex structures upon injury. One of the best-known examples is their ability to fully regenerate a functional limb. READ MORE

  5. 5. Plasticity of salamander skeletal muscle cells

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Cell and Molecular Biology

    Author : Paula Borg; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2012]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES;

    Abstract : Regeneration is unevenly spread throughout the animal kingdom. Some of the invertebrates have a very high regenerative capacity but the capacity to replace lost or damaged tissues in mammals is limited. READ MORE
