Sammanfattning : Bone metastasis of a predominantly osteoblastic (sclerotic) nature is the outcome for the vast majority of patients with castration-resistant prostate cancer (CRPC). Pathologically, osteoblastic tumors are characterized by excessive bone formation resulting in decreased quality of life due to severe pain, fractures, nerve compression, and a suppressed immune system.

Sammanfattning : Bone turnover, remodeling, is a constant process replacing old bone with new. This complex cellular event involves resorption by osteoclasts and formation of new bone by osteoblasts. The balance between osteoblastic and osteoclastic activity is under regulation by several endocrine and paracrine factors. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : The work presented in this thesis focuses on the development of strategies and smart bioactive materials for the treatment of osteoporosis. High and low molecular weight soluble hyaluronic acid-bisphosphonate (HA-BP) derivatives were investigated for their ability to inhibit osteoclasts. LÄS MER
Sammanfattning : Bone metabolism is regulated by endocrine and paracrine signalling molecules influencing bone cells in the continuously remodelling bone tissue. These molecules include a variety of osteotropic stimulatory and inhibitory cytokines. LÄS MER
5. Experimental studies on the effects of insulin-like growth factor I and glucocorticoids on bone metabolism
Sammanfattning : Osteoporosis is a major cause of disability among patients that are dependent on glucocorticoids in the treatment of inflammatory disease. The pathogenesis behind this side effect is complex, involving dysregulation of hormonal systems and direct effects on bone cells. LÄS MER
