Sammanfattning : Osteoarthritis (OA) is the most common joint disease, causing disability in middle-aged and elderly patients worldwide and imposing a huge socioeconomic burden. OA of the knee joint is a major cause of joint pain and, along with back pain, it accounts for the two most-reported causes of chronic pain. LÄS MER
2. Focal knee resurfacing : a translational study in sheep on the treatment of focal condylar cartilage lesions with metal implants
Sammanfattning : Background The translational process of introducing a new treatment concept in medicine from innovation to clinical application is a challenging endeavour that often involves animal experiments. Focal cartilage lesion remains a clinical challenge and is considered to portend osteoarthritis (OA). LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : This thesis deals with the highly potent olfactory mucosa toxicant 2,6-dichlorophenyl methylsulphone (2,6-diClPh-MeSO2) and its non-toxic 2,5-chlorinated isomer (2,5-diClPh-MeSO2). In mice, both substances bind firmly in the olfactory mucosa and the olfactory bulb, which are important components of the sensory system. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Osteoarthritis (OA)-an unspecific term for late joint destruction-is one of the most common causes of pain and disability in elderly. OA is characterized by destruction of articular cartilage and insufficient tissue repair. Hartley guinea pigs develop a spontaneous knee arthropathy similar to primary human knee OA. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injuries are common, severe knee injuries that result in a high risk of developing knee osteoarthritis (OA) in the affected individuals. As proof of high impact forces applied to cartilage and bone at the time of injury, traumatic bone marrow lesions and osteochondral fractures, located predominantly in the lateral tibiofemoral compartment, are commonly associated with an ACL injury.
