    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg

    Författare :Helena Forsblad d'Elia; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2003]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Rheumatoid arthritis; randomised controlled trials; hormone replacement therapy; estrogen; osteoporosis; bone mineral density; bone remodelling; cartilage remodelling; cytokines; insulin-like growth factor 1;

    Sammanfattning : Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) is 2-3 times more frequent in women as compared to men. The peak incidence in women coincides with the years around the menopause and the course of RA is also influenced by events associated with hormonal alterations. LÄS MER

  2. 17. Genetic Factors and Nasal Tolerance in Rat Models for Rheumatoid Arthritis

    Detta är en avhandling från Medical Inflammation Research, Department of Experimental Medicine, Faculty of Medicine, Lund University

    Sammanfattning : We used three animal models of rats for rheumatoid arthritis (RA) in this study. Firstly, We found that CXI induced arthritis (CXIIA) is associated with the RT1 f haplotype and follows a chronic disease course affecting peripheral joints with both progression and relapses.
