  1. 1. Hands-on osteoporosis screening with digital x-ray radiogrammetry

    Detta är en avhandling från Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Dept of Global Public Health

    Författare :Michael Wilczek; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [2020]

    Sammanfattning : According to epidemiological studies about one third of women and one fifth of men over 50 years will experience a fragility fracture. These fractures account for substantial mortality, morbidity and health care cost. Osteoporosis is a silent disease and thus often goes undiagnosed for a long time. LÄS MER

  2. 2. Osteoporosis in elderly women; Bone traits, fracture and the PTH gene complex

    Detta är en avhandling från Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit, Clinical Sciences, Malmö

    Författare :Max Tenne; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; osteoporosis; fracture; parathyroid hormone; gene; polymorphism; dual energy X-ray absorptiometry; bone mineral density; hip strength analysis;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Fragility fractures are a major health problem world wide and the numbers are growing due to ageing populations. Early identification of individuals at risk for osteoporosis and fracture, enabling preventive measures and treatment is essential. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Peak Bone Mass, Lifestyle Factors and Birth Weight: A study of 25-year old women

    Detta är en avhandling från Department of Clinical Sciences, Lund University

    Författare :Mattias Callréus; [2013]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Peak bone mass; normative values; birth weight; physical activity; smoking; bone mineral density; bone mineral content; dual energy X-ray absorptiometry;

    Sammanfattning : Background: Osteoporosis is a common bone disease, which does not give symptoms until the ultimate outcome, the fragility fracture occurs. Regulation of bone mass is controlled by genetic, environmental and nutritional influences. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Insulin-like Growth Factor-I (IGF-I) and Interleukin-6 (IL-6) regulate body fat

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Kristina Wallenius; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Obesity; insulin-like growth factor I IGF-I ; interleukin-6 IL-6 ; growth hormone GH ; GH releasing factor GHRF ; GH secretagogue GHS ; receptor; leptin; insulin; glucose; intracerebroventricular ICV ; dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry DXA ; indirect calorimetry.;

    Sammanfattning : The aim of this thesis was to investigate the role of insulin-like growth factor-I (IGF-I) and interleukin-6 (IL-6) in the regulation of metabolism and body fat mass. Circulating IGF-I is mainly liver derived, while a large part of circulating IL-6 is produced by adipose tissue. LÄS MER

  5. 5. Pharmacological Modulation of Skeletal Homeostasis

    Detta är en avhandling från Niklas Andersson, Department of Pharmacology, Institute of Physiolological Sciences, BMC F13, Lund University, SE-221 84 LUND, Sweden

    Författare :Niklas U. Andersson; [2002]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Farmakologi; toxicology; farmakognosi; farmaci; toxikologi; pharmacy; pharmacognosy; Pharmacological sciences; peripheral quantitative computed tomography.; dual energy X-ray absorptiomenty; estrogen; parathyroid hormone; gastrectomy; alendronate; ovariectomy; Bone;

    Sammanfattning : Both ovariectomy (OVX) and gastrectomy (GX) cause osteopenia in several animal species including humans. While the effect of OVX has been ascribed to estrogen deficiency, the underlying mechanism behind GX-induced osteopenia is poorly understood. LÄS MER
