Metabolism of collagen and POP

Metabolism of collagen and pelvic organ prolapse (POP) (NZOS 216-0000000-0535)
The project determines the expression of collagen type I. and III. and matrixmetalloproteinases 1 and 2 in pelvic tissue of women with POP by comparing them with similar samples of healthy controls. All subjects are examined by spirometry pulmonary function that was significantly worse in women with POP. In subjects with POP hormone replacement therapy significantly improved lung function after six months.
