    Sammanfattning : A common skin disease affecting about 2-3% of the population, psoriasis has an inheritance pattern that is unclear, but most probably many genes are involved in its pathogenesis. Other studies have suggested many susceptibility regions in the genome, but as yet independent studies have replicated only some of these regions located on chromosome 1q, 6p and 17q. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Back pain in primary care : aspects on treatment and the possible influence of oral contraceptives

    Författare :Ullacarin Wreje; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Nyckelord :Low back pain; sacro-iliac joint; manipulation therapy; water; injections; relaxin; women; menstrual cycle; oral contraceptive; collagen metabolism;

    Sammanfattning : The general objectives of this thesis were to investigate back pain in a primary-care setting, and especially to study the effect of manual treatment on pelvic-joint dysfunction, the effect of sterile-water injections on chronic, myofascial pain and the possible influence of oral contraceptives (OC) on back pain in women in the fertile ages. The effect of a single intervention with manipulation mobilisation was compared with that of massage on pelvic-joint dysfunction with regard to sick-leave, consumption of analgesic, pain and joint mobility.

    Sammanfattning : Menopause is not a disease, but may bring about a wide range of health complaints and increase some risks of illnesses. The aim of this study was to evaluate the general health status and influences of background factors on symptomatology among a cohort of Swedish women aged 50-64 years, with specific emphasis on the effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) by investigating a profile of HRT use, long-term effects of HRT by different tapes and routes of administration as well as clinical and metabolic changes by use of low dose HRT.
