1. Proteomics of the human meniscus in health and osteoarthritis
Sammanfattning : Introduction: Osteoarthritis (OA) is one of the most common causes of knee pain, and the most common form ofarthritis. It causes pain and disability, and there is currently no cure. Recent research in knee OA highlights therole of the meniscus in OA pathology. LÄS MER
2. Developing knee joint osteoarthritis: Clinical, radiographical and biochemical features
Sammanfattning : The aim of this project was to study clinical, radiographical and biochemical features of developing, symptomatic knee osteoarthritis (OA) prospectively in individuals aged 35-54 from the general population. A questionnaire to a random sample of 2 000 individuals in the district of Laholm, Sweden, identified 279 individuals (15% of the population) with chronic (>3 months) knee pain. LÄS MER
3. Osteoarthritis. Epidemiologic and genetic aspects
Sammanfattning : The purpose of this study was to (I) assess the association between body mass index (BMI) and total hip replacement (THR) and total knee replacement (TKR) due to osteoarthritis (OA), (II) assess the association between the mechanical load of work and THR and TKR due to OA, (III) evaluate the natural history of radiographic hip OA with regards to THR and hip fracture, (IV) to determine the prevalence of radiographic OA in patients with hip fracture, and (V) to examine and compare the inheritance patterns of THR for OA and hip fracture. OA was previously regarded as a consequence of the wear and tear the joint is subjected to during one’s lifetime. LÄS MER
4. Human studies evaluating dGEMRIC as a prognostic tool for knee osteoarthritis
Sammanfattning : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disorder worldwide, causing joint pain and stiffness. The current gold standard for diagnosing knee OA is radiography. However, the disease has often progressed well beyond the point of no return once radiographic cartilage changes become visible. LÄS MER
5. Anterior Cruciate Ligament injury, Patient Variables, Outcomes and Knee Osteoarthritis
Sammanfattning : The ruptured anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) leads to immediate symptoms that severely affect the individual and receives great attention among the scientific community, yet there is still no consensus on the optional form of treatment. An ACL injury is also a well known high risk factor for the development of knee osteoarthritis (OA) some decades later. LÄS MER
