Mechanisms of Osseointegration: Experimental Studies on Early Cellular and Molecular Events in vivo
The early cellular and molecular activities determining the early tissue response and bone formation at bone/implant interface are not fully understood. The general aim of the current thesis was to develop a model for ...
Molecular and structural patterns of guided bone regeneration (GBR). Experimental studies on the role of GBR membrane and bone substitute materials
The mechanisms of guided bone regeneration (GBR) and bone healing with calcium phosphate (CaP) bone substitutes are not fully understood. The major aim of this thesis was to determine the relationship between the bone ...
On the importance of inflammation for personality traits and psychiatric morbidity
Background: Pro-inflammatory mediators have been implicated in processes that could be both beneficial and toxic to cells in the brain. On the one hand balanced levels of these mediators favour e.g. neurodevelopmental ...
Effects of antiresorptive agents on inflammation and bone regeneration in different osseous sites - experimental and clinical studies
ABSTRACT The biological mechanisms involved in bone regeneration in osteoporotic bone and the effect of antiresorptive drugs in relation to surgically inserted biomaterials are not fully understood. Improved osseointegration ...
A methodological platform to study molecular biocompatibility of biomaterials. Experimental and clinical studies
The aim of this project was to develop a methodological platform in order to advance our scientific understanding of the mechanisms of osseointegration. Screw-shaped, titanium implants, with different surface properties, ...
Epithelial signatures in respiratory disease
The epithelium of the human airways protects us against harm and helps maintain immune homeostasis. In respiratory diseases such as asthma and COPD, the functions of the epithelium are altered and can cause or contribute to ...
