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

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

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
5. The Influence of Physical Activity on Musculoskeletal Characteristics and Fracture Risk at GrowthDetta är en avhandling från Clinical and Molecular Osteoporosis Research Unit, Clinical Sciences, Malmö
Sammanfattning : Physical Activity (PA) can improve neuromuscular development. A high level of physical activity can perhaps however lead to more fractures. This is a longitudinal population-based exercise intervention study where the school-based physical education (PE) in one school is increased from mean 60 min/week to mean 200 min/ week. LÄS MER
