  1. 1. Bone and fat tissue in children and adolescents: studies with focus on osteocalcin

    Författare :Bojan Tubić; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Nyckelord :osteocalcin; obesity; adiponectin; carboxylation; anorexia nervosa; paediatric; bone turnover markers; bone mass; whole body vibration; muscle;

    Sammanfattning : The general AIM was to investigate the possible interplay between bone and fat tissue through clinical studies of children and adolescents. Osteocalcin (OC), a bone formation marker, has been proposed to act as a link between bone and energy metabolism in mice, but human data are inconclusive. LÄS MER

  4. 4. Atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease in rheumatoid arthritis : aspects of pathogenesis and risk

    Författare :Bengt Wahlin; Solveig Wållberg-Jonsson; Anna Södergren; Anders Bengtsson; Umeå universitet; []
    Nyckelord :MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; inflammation; atherosclerosis; cardiovascular disease; risk estimation; cytomegalovirus; T-cells; bone turnover; osteoprotegerin; osteocalcin; Medicine; medicin;

    Sammanfattning : Patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) have an increased prevalence and severity of atherosclerosis, and a corresponding increased risk of cardiovascular disease. The mechanisms causing this are not well elucidated, but both traditional cardiovascular risk factors and RA-associated factors have been associated with atherosclerosis and increased risk of cardiovascular events in patients with RA.

    Sammanfattning : Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the leading cause of death in the Western World, although the incidence of myocardial infarction (MI) has declined over the last decades. However, obesity, which is one of the most important risk factors for CVD, is increasingly common. Osteoporosis is also on the rise because of an aging population. LÄS MER
