BACKGROUND: Infliximab has been shown to have beneficial effects on bone metabolism in patients with Crohns disease (CD) although as yet the exact mechanisms have not been fully elucidated. AIM: To evaluate the impact of adalimumab therapy on bone metabolism using a combined in vivo and in vitro model. METHODS: Parathyroid hormone, vitamin D, bone formation markers, bone resorption marker, pro-inflammatory cytokines, anti-inflammatory cytokines, osteoprotegerin, and sRANKL were measured in control patients and pre- and post-treatment with adalimumab in CD patients. The effect of control patients and pre- and post-treatment CD patients sera on human osteoblasts (hFOB 1.19) in vitro cell viability and differentiation was also analyzed. RESULTS: There was a significant increase in bone formation markers osteocalcin (P | 0.05) and procollagen type 1 N-terminal propeptide (P | 0.01) at 1 and 3 months post-treatment. Moreover, there was a sustained but not significant fall in serum CTx, a bone resorption
Among a myriad of difficulties, people with diabetes have problems with their bones; after a break, their bones do not heal well. Tevlin et al. use mice to investigate the cause and to devise a solution. In several models of diabetes, skeletal stem cells, which normally multiply to repair a bone injury, failed to do so. The high blood concentrations of TNFα in these diabetic mice inhibited a growth factor within the stem cell niche. The authors succeeded in reversing this deficit; delivery of the missing factor directly to the niche restored the expansion of stem cells after injury and normalized bone healing. Correction of the inhospitable niche environment for skeletal stem cells is a promising approach for this complication of diabetes and perhaps for other stem cell-based diseases. ...
Bone is composed of a living protein framework upon which mineral crystals are placed. As bone breaks down, bits of this living protein framework appear in the urine. Tests of bone breakdown, called bone resorption tests, measure the amount of one specific bone protein in the urine (or in the blood) and thus gauge the current rate of bone breakdown. Urinary markers of bone breakdown (known as markers of bone resorption) are simple urine tests that can help determine if you are currently losing bone or not. Such bone breakdown testing can also indicate if your bone-building program is effective at reducing and normalizing the bone breakdown process.. As bone is broken down certain bone protein by-products are excreted in the urine. Measurement of the amount of these bone breakdown by-products can determine the rate of bone breakdown. A high rate of bone breakdown is strongly suggestive of current, ongoing bone loss and a greater risk for osteoporotic fracture. A low rate of bone resorption would ...

Bone Biology and the Role of RANK/RANKL/OPG Pathway. Speaker: Robert G. Josse, MD, Division of Endocrinology & Metabolism, St. Michaels Hospital; Professor of Medicine, University of Toronto, Toronto, ON.. Advances in the understanding of bone biology and the role of the RANK/RANKL/OPG pathway have opened new treatment avenues for osteoporosis. To facilitate understanding of the "new biology," Dr. Robert Josse first reviewed determinants of bone strength.. Trabecular bone, a spongy network of delicate plates of bone known as trabeculae, constitutes 20% of skeletal mass but accounts for ~80% of bone turnover. In contrast, cortical bone constitutes 80% of mass but ~20% of turnover. The interior surface of cortical bone, the endosteum, is the primary site of remodeling and metabolic activities while the exterior surface, the periosteum, is the site of new bone formation.. Remodeling, Dr. Josse noted, takes place continuously: tiny packets of bone throughout the skeleton constantly undergo this ...
BioSil Bone Collagenizer Matrix 40 Vegetarian Capsules With ch-OSA Advanced Collagen Generator Collagen is crucial to your bone health. Collagen provides the binding sites for calcium and other bone minerals. When bone collagen diminishes, bone mineral density decreases. In addition, collagen gives bones the vital flexibility they need. New bone research reveals that collagen, in conjunction with deposited calcium, gives bones their ability to withstand physical stress, as with sudden impact. Unlike calcium that you can ingest and receive the benefits, you cannot eat collagen expecting to add collagen to you bones. The key is stimulating the cells that naturally generate bone collagen, called osteoblasts. BioSils new Bone Collagenizer Matrix is clinically proven to increase bone collagen formation (BCF), and increase bone mineral density (BMD) at the critical hip region, in women already taking 1000 mg of calcium and 800 IU of vitamin D daily. BioSil Bone Collagenizer Matrix helps you
Bone strength and peak bone mass are preliminary determined by genetic factors. Life style, especially exercise, is also considered to have an important effect on bone strength. Bone has the ability to strengthen itself according to Wolffs Law. When bone is subjected to strains and/or strain rates higher than the usual, it responds by remodeling, strengthening its architecture. The ability is greatest in young individuals and decreases with age. In the elderly this ability is largely non-existent and bone mass is lost. Whether this loss leads to osteoporosis is largely a function of the peak bone mass achieved before the decline. 11% of males and 44 % of females over 50 suffer from osteoporosis in later life. To what extent vigorous exercising beginning at a young age can increase bone strength is not known.. The purpose of the proposed research is to quantify the effect of life style on bone strength and general health parameters by comparing two male populations, one sedentary and the other ...
474. A bone scan is a study done to show problem spots on the spine. A radioactive chemical, sometimes called a "tracer", is injected into the bloodstream. The chemical quickly attaches itself to sections of the bones that are actively making new bone. Images are taken of the skeleton, several hours after the shot. A bone scan can show problems such as fractures of the spine, infection, and bone tumors. It can also be used to resolve bone density and the bone-thinning condition of osteoporosis.. bone scan, skeleton, osteoporosis, bone tumor, radioactive tracer, bone making, bone cells. This article was written to answer many of the most frequently asked questions on the subject of bone scans. If you have chronic back pain, a bone scan may be one of the scarier tests that you may undergo, but it is actually a fairly safe and relatively painless procedure.. First off, what is a bone scan?. Simply put its a study done to show problem spots on the spine. A radioactive chemical, sometimes called a ...
Bone is constantly being created and replaced in a process known as remodeling. This ongoing turnover of bone is a process of resorption followed by replacement of bone with little change in shape. This is accomplished through osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Cells are stimulated by a variety of signals, and together referred to as a remodeling unit. Approximately 10% of the skeletal mass of an adult is remodelled each year.[42] The purpose of remodeling is to regulate calcium homeostasis, repair microdamaged bones from everyday stress, and to shape the skeleton during growth.[citation needed] Repeated stress, such as weight-bearing exercise or bone healing, results in the bone thickening at the points of maximum stress (Wolffs law). It has been hypothesized that this is a result of bones piezoelectric properties, which cause bone to generate small electrical potentials under stress.[43] The action of osteoblasts and osteoclasts are controlled by a number of chemical enzymes that either promote or ...
We saw a decrease in the level of sclerostin in both of these exercise interventions in men, Hinton said. When sclerostin is expressed at high levels, it has a negative impact on bone formation. In both resistance and jump training, the level of sclerostin in the bone goes down, which triggers bone formation.. The other significant change Hinton observed was an increase in the hormone IGF-1. Unlike sclerostin, IGF-1 triggers bone growth. The decrease of harmful sclerostin levels and the increase in beneficial IGF-1 levels confirmed Hintons prior research that found both resistance training and jump training have beneficial effects on bone growth.. To increase bone mass and prevent osteoporosis, Hinton recommends exercising specifically to target bone health. While exercises such as swimming and cycling are beneficial to overall health, these activities do not strengthen the skeleton. Hinton suggests also doing exercise targeted for bone health, such as resistance training and jump ...
Objectives: The association of bone turnover markers (BTM) with bone loss and fracture risk in men is poorly studied. The morphological basis of such a relationship is unknown. The objective of this study was to evaluate the association between baseline BTM levels and subsequent bone loss and fracture risk in men.. Methods: This study is a prospective 7.5-year follow-up of the cohort composed of 723 men aged 50-85 years. Serum concentrations of osteocalcin, bone alkaline phosphatase (BAP), procollagen type I N-terminal propeptide, C-terminal telopeptide of type I collagen (β-CTX-I) and urinary excretion of deoxypyridinoline and β-CTX-I were measured at baseline. Every 18 months, incident fractures were recorded and bone mineral density (BMD) was measured by DXA (spine, hip, distal forearm, whole body).. Results: Increase in the BTM levels was associated with faster bone loss at the level of the trochanter, whole body and distal forearm. At the level of the distal radius and the ulna, increase ...
The Top 3 Food Ingredients I would recommend are magnesium, vitamin K and boron. Did you know that calcium rich foods are not the only foods that can promote bone health and prevent osteoporosis? The following food nutrients play a significant role in building and maintaining bone health and strength. Magnesium is needed for proper bone development, it plays a role in bone remodelling by influencing 2 types of bone cells: osteoblasts and osteoclasts. Osteoblasts help build bone and osteoclasts break down bone. It helps increase bone density by regulating the transport of calcium. The best way to add magnesium to your diet is to eat more magnesium rich foods. The following foods are rich in magnesium: lentils, spinach, bananas and dark chocolate. Vitamin K Surprised? Well dont be, vitamin K plays a vital role in bone remineralization by working with vitamin D to regulate bone metabolism and calcium balance in the bone. It increases bone density in patients with osteoporosis and can reduce the ...
Dear Editor,. We thank Rossini et al for their comments1 on our recent study on inhibitory effect by denosumab on the progression of bone erosions in Japanese patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).2 They addressed their observation from point of view of bone in patient with RA. We think their view brings treatment of RA closer to treatment of osteoporosis.. Activated osteoclasts decrease bone mineral density (BMD) and stimulate bone erosion in patients with RA.3 Receptor activator of nuclear factor kappa-B ligand (RANKL) promotes osteoclast differentiation, maturation, and activation.4-7 Denosumab is a fully human monoclonal antibody against RANKL that inhibits osteoclast formation, function, and survival. Denosumab treatment increases BMD in cortical and trabecular bone. In addition, denosumab has been shown to improve cortical bone microstructure in subjects with osteoporosis or low bone mass.8 ,9. Increases in lumbar spine and total hip BMD and inhibition of progression of bone erosion have ...
The invention is directed toward a sterile malleable bone composition for application to a bone defect site to promote new bone growth at the site comprising a mixture of demineralized osteogenic bone powder with a particle size ranging from about 250 to about 750 microns and surface demineralized cortical bone rods having a diameter ranging from 1.0 mm to 5.00 mm or larger bone chips. The surface demineralized cortical bone rods have diameter to length ratio ranging from 1:2 to 1:20. The demineralized bone powder range from about 25 to about 30% of the weight of the composition and the cortical bone rods range from 5% to about 10% of the weight of the composition with the carrier being selected from the high molecular weight hydrogel in aqueous solution having a high molecular weight over 700,000 Daltons and ranging from about 2.0% to about 5.0% by weight of the carrier solution.
Osteolytic bone metastases are frequent in patients with advanced cancer of the breast, lung, and (to a lesser extent) the prostate. Roentgenography, bone scintigraphy, and bone biopsies are commonly used for the early identification and follow-up of these conditions. These methods have though marked shortcomings as they are all static methods giving a picture of the current situation in bone but not telling about rate of changes taking place in bone. Metabolic bone markers have been shown to be a useful tool for monitoring metastatic bone activity.. It has been shown that there are two different pathways of bone resorption: the cathepsin K-mediated pathway, which is active during physiological resorption of bone, and the matrix metalloproteinase pathway, which functions mainly in pathological situations. ICTP specifically reflects matrix metalloproteinase-mediated pathological degradation of bone collagen (1, 2). ICTP is thus a highly specific marker of bone degradation in bone metastasis and ...
Bone is made up of cells that grow and collagen fibres (tough, elastic fibres) as well as minerals like Calcium that give it the hardness. There are two main types of cells within the hard bone tissue that mould the bone. These cells are Osteoblasts and Osteoclasts.. Osteoblasts form the bone by laying down bone material. Osteoclasts dissolve the particles of bone and cause resorption. These cells are active throughout life and work in tandem balance to keep the bone constantly growing and dissolving. There is a slow but constant turnover of bone.. Another type of cell is chondrocytes which make cartilage. These make the hard tissues that cover the ends of bones in joints. In the centre of some larger bones is the soft bone marrow that is the place where blood cells are manufactured.. Although bone cancers are rare, there are four major types of bone cancer of primary origin. These include osteosarcoma, Ewings sarcoma, spindle cell sarcoma and chondrosarcoma.. ...
Rheumatology (Oxford). 2016 Oct;55(10):1714-25. Epub 2016 Jan 20. DOI: 10.1093/rheumatology/kev410 PMID: 26790456 [PubMed - in process]. Traditional BTMs have been used for years to help with fracture risk prediction and in particular for treatment monitoring. Clinical use of the new biochemical markers has not been established so far. Their relationship with fracture risk is still under investigation, and their use as treatment monitoring tools needs to be studied. In fact, their role is probably dependent on a new approach based on our understanding of bone physiology. These new markers will be helpful for exploring the physiological and pathological relations between the bone and other organs, and to monitor joint diseases, chronic kidney disease - mineral and bone disorder (CKD-MBD) and cardiovascular disease. mechanisms in the bone or other organs.. ...
If you followed bone-healthy recommendations when you were younger, you would have maximized your bone density with lots of calcium-rich food and weight-bearing activity. You would have reached your optimum peak bone density about age 30.. If your bones werent weakened by certain medical conditions or medications after that, they would have maintained their density until the years around menopause. Thats when estrogen levels start to wane, causing a loss in bone density. During the five years around menopause, you can lose up to 25% of your bone density and be at increased risk of broken bones. After that rapid bone loss, left unchecked, you will continue to lose about 0.5% of bone mass and 1.0% of muscle mass every year.. Now that you know about the natural occurrence of bone loss that comes with age, you should understand the need to take charge of your bone health. Act now to create a road map to protect yourself by minimizing bone loss and reducing the risk of fractures. ...
Bone homeostasis depends on the interplay between bone resporption by osteoclasts and bone formation by osteoblasts. Any Imbalance of this tightly regulated process can cause diseases such as osteoporosis. Therefore, the knowledge about the factors that regulate communication between osteoclasts and osteoblasts are critical to bone cell biology.Osteoporosis is a progressive systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass density and deterioration of bone tissue. Mature miRNAs are about 22 nucleotide long non coding RNA molecules that are involved in regulatory processes intracellularly. A number of scientific studies have revealed a comprehensive and evidential knowledge about miRNAs that affect the bone metabolism by influencing bone formation and resorption processes. In this short review we have summrized the regulatory role of some selective miRNAs in bone formation.
The bone is enclosed in a tough, fibrous, connective tissue covering called the periosteum, which is continuous with the ligaments and tendons that anchor bones. The periosteum contains blood vessels that enter the bone and service its cells. At both ends of a long bone is an expanded portion called an epiphysis; the portion between the epiphyses is called the diaphysis. The diaphysis is not solid but has a medullary cavity containing yellow marrow. The medullary cavity is bounded at the sides by compact bone. The epiphyses contain spongy bone. Beyond the spongy bone is a thin shell of compact bone and, finally, a layer of hyaline cartilage called the articular cartilage. The medullary cavity and the spaces of spongy bone are lined with endosteum, a thin, fibrous membrane.. i. Cortical (80 ...
Mature bone tissue is classified as two types: trabecular [also known as spongy] and cortical [also known as compact]. Cortical type bone forms the dense, outer shell that surrounds the inner core of honeycomb-like, trabecular type bone. Blood vessels deliver nourishment to cortical bone; trabecular bone receives nutrients by diffusion from the inner bone marrow. While all trabecular bone is surrounded by cortical bone, the thickness of the cortex differs by location. The ratio of cortical: trabecular bone is higher in long bones like the shaft of the femur, and is lower in vertebral body bones ...

Diabetes is known to have a number of complications such as atherosclerosis, nephropathy, retinopathy, and neuropathy. However, diabetes may also affect bone and compromise bone biomechanical competence beyond what is revealed through changes in bone mineral density. Bone disease may thus ne a novel hitherto overlooked complication of diabetes. Diabetes may affect bone in a number of ways: 1) glucose may affect collagen by foming advanced glycation end products (AGE) such as pentosidine, which may lower bone biomechanical competence, 2) hyperglycaemia and AGE may affect bone cells leading to a state of low bone turnover and thus osteoporosis, 3) hyperglycaemia may lead to excess loss of calcium in the urine and thus a negative calcium balance. Furthermore many differences between type 1 diabetes (T1D) and type 2 diabetes (T2D) affect bone as patients with T1D are often underweight and lack insulin, which is an anabolic factor, whereas T2D patients are often overweight, and may have high
Bone is living tissue. Like other tissue, bone is constantly being broken down and replaced with new material. Normally, there is a balance between the breakdown of old bone and its replacement with new bone. But when something goes wrong with the process, bone disorders may result.. Osteoporosis is a particular concern for women after menopause, as well as for older men. In osteoporosis, the inside of the bones become porous and thin. Over time, this condition weakens the bones and makes them more likely to break. Osteoporosis is four times more common in women than in men. This is because women have less bone mass than men, tend to live longer and take in less calcium, and need the female hormone estrogen to keep their bones strong. If men live long enough, they are also at risk of getting osteoporosis later in life. Once total bone mass has peaked- around age 35-all adults start to lose it. In women, the rate of bone loss speeds up during menopause, when estrogen levels fall. Bone loss may ...
As a veterinarian with over thirty years of hands-on experience dealing with healthy and sick dogs and cats, and as a veterinarian with a keen interest in nutritional consequences affecting dogs and cats and as a member of a national veterinary nutrition association, I must ask two questions of those who so staunchly believe that RAW BONE consumption is an absolute requirement for dogs:. 1. Could it be that the nutritional benefits seemingly derived from feeding RAW BONES is mostly derived from the meat, fat and connective tissues attached to those raw bones more so than from the actual bone itself? In other words, Is the benefit really coming from bone ... or from the attached muscle, fat, and connective tissue?. 2. How can it be explained that I have seen many very healthy, old dogs in the course of practice that have never eaten a single RAW BONE? (Of course these old, healthy and very fortunate pets have owners who are feeding these dogs meat, fruit and other table scraps. That may be ...
Increased longevity and improved medical management of children with chronic illnesses has led to a focus on the short- and long-term consequences of these conditions on bone health. Bone loss is influenced by diet, malabsorption, and disease-related imbalances in bone turnover. It may be exacerbated by common medications, especially corticosteroids. Assessment of bone mass and quality, calcium absorption, kinetically derived rates of bone turnover, and biochemical markers of bone turnover have increased our knowledge of the pathophysiology of bone loss in these children as well as provided insights into possible therapeutic interventions. Increased intake of calcium and vitamin D, while useful, is unlikely to prevent or resolve bone loss in many chronically ill children. Emphasis on combination of nutritional interventions with exercise and newer bone-sparing therapies may be necessary.
Large bone defects, such as those resulting from tumor excision, critical size defect fractures, or non-union, remain a clinical problem in bone reconstructive surgery. Current treatments involving autologous or allogenic bone grafts present the problem of implant availability and quality, or associated infection and immune response risks, respectively. In addition, as bone formation is highly dependent on the presence of osteogenic cells at the implant site, vascularization is also a major concern, as inadequate bone vascularization is typically associated with decreased bone formation, tissue necrosis, and implant integration failure, leading to impaired bone repair. The bone biology focus area mainly aims to study the cellular mechanisms involved in the different phases of bone healing and their interplay for a better understanding and further monitoring of the process. The induction of vessels within an artificial bone substitute, by co-seeding endothelial progenitors and mesenchymal stromal ...
The method of this invention relates to preparing a bone to secure a prosthesis thereto by improving the mechanical interdigitation of bone cement and the bone and facilitating hemostasis of the bone. First, the bone is mechanically shaped to expose cancellous bone in a desired configuration for reception of a joint prosthesis. A pressurized jet of dry-flowing gas is then applied to the exposed bone, to clean and dry the trabecular interstices of the exposed cancellous bone. To further withdraw debris and liquids dislodged from the interstices of the prepared bone by the pressurized jet of dry-flowing gas, suction is applied to the bone concurrently with the application of the pressurized jet of dry-flowing gas. Bone cement in liquid form is then applied to the bone, with cement penetration into the cleaned and dried interstices of the bone.

In this work, we found that bone mineral formation proceeded very rapidly in mice by 1 day of age, where the degree of mineralization, the tissue mineral density, and the mineral crystallinity reached 36%, 51%, and 87% of the adult values, respectively. However, even though significant mineralization had occurred, the elastic modulus of 1-day-old bone was only 14% of its adult value, indicating that the intrinsic stiffening of the bone lags considerably behind the initial mineral formation.. Introduction: To meet the mechanical challenges during early development, the skeleton requires the rapid accretion of bone quality and bone quantity. Here, we describe early bone development in the mouse skeleton and test the hypothesis that specific compositional properties determine the stiffness of the tissue.. Materials and Methods: Tibias of female BALB mice were harvested at eight time-points (n = 4 each) distributed between 1 and 40 days of age and subjected to morphometric (μCT), chemical (Fourier ...
Nerves that leave the spine in the area of the sacrum help control the bowels and bladder and provide sensation to the crotch area. There are three types of bone, woven bone, cortical bone, and cancellous bone. In adults, woven bone is found where there is a broken bone that is healing (callus formation). It can also be found with hyperparathyroidism and Pagets disease. It is composed of randomly arranged collagen strands. It is normally remodeled by the body and replaced with cortical or cancellous bone. Cortical bone is called compact or lamellar bone. It forms the inside and outside tables of flat bones and the outside surfaces of long bones. It is dense and makes up 80 percent of our bone mass. The radius (wrist bone), skull, and long bones are made of cortical bone. Cancellous bone is also called trabecular bone. It lies between the cortical bone surfaces. It is the inner supporting structure and is spongy. It makes up 20 percent of our bone mass. Normal cancellous bone is always ...
Bones are rigid, but they do bend or give somewhat when an outside force is applied. However, if the force is too great, the bones will break, just as a plastic ruler breaks when it is bent too far. The severity of a fracture usually depends on the force that caused the break. If the bones breaking point has been exceeded only slightly, then the bone may crack rather than break all the way through. If the force is extreme, such as in an automobile crash or a gunshot, the bone may shatter. If the bone breaks in such a way that bone fragments stick out through the skin, or a wound penetrates down to the broken bone, the fracture is called an open fracture. This type of fracture is particularly serious because once the skin is broken, infection in both the wound and the bone can occur. ...
MicoCT data saw significant reductions to cortical thickness (p,0.05), bone mineral density (p,0.001), and increases to medullary area (p,0.05) among HFD males and females compared to LFD. HFD-males also experienced significant increase in cortical porosity (P,0.001) whereas no changes were noted in HFDfemales. Trabecular bone volume was relatively unchanged. HFD increased cortical osteoclast surface (p,0.001) for both sexes. Bone histology saw increased marrow adiposity among HFD-females (p,0.05). Muscle histology exhibited HFD-related reductions in myofiber diameter (p,0.001) for both sexes. Mechanical testing demonstrated reduced youngs modulus (p,0.05) and yield stress (p,0.05) among HFD mice, despite non-significant differences in ultimate strength.. Conclusion and Potential Impact: The changes associated with a long-term HFD differed between sexes but still led to functional impairments of bone and muscle for both sexes, emphasizing the importance of looking further into the mechanisms ...
The long bones are those that are longer than they are wide. They are one of five types of bones: long, short, flat, irregular and sesamoid. Long bones, especially the femur and tibia, are subjected to most of the load during daily activities and they are crucial for skeletal mobility. They grow primarily by elongation of the diaphysis, with an epiphysis at each end of the growing bone. The ends of epiphyses are covered with hyaline cartilage ("articular cartilage"). The longitudinal growth of long bones is a result of endochondral ossification at the epiphyseal plate. Bone growth in length is stimulated by the production of growth hormone (GH), a secretion of the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland. The long bones include the femora, tibiae, and fibulae of the legs; the humeri, radii, and ulnae of the arms; metacarpals and metatarsals of the hands and feet, the phalanges of the fingers and toes, and the clavicles or collar bones. The long bones of the human leg comprise nearly half of adult ...
The human body is composed of trillions of cells, but it is basically supported by muscles and bones. The bones, in particular, are very important as they protect the organs inside the body. The strength and volume of the bones are determined by calcium levels, which peak during the first two decades of life. For this reason, it is imperative to attain the peak bone mass during the adolescence stage.. To build strong bones that will last a lifetime, teenagers must consume 1,200 mg of calcium daily. Unfortunately, teenagers between the ages of nine and 18 often do not meet this daily requirement because of their lifestyles. This lack of calcium increases the risk of low bone density and contracting osteoporosis later in life. To ensure optimum bone health, it is essential to maintain a balanced calcium level, which can be attained by following a healthy diet and performing regular exercise. Calcium is truly essential in teenage bone formation, and certain types of workouts can help strengthen the ...
In spite of decades of research, cancer is still the second leading cause of death worldwide. Cancers are complex diseases that occur due to genetic and epigenetic changes. While current therapies have contributed to increased overall survival in cancer patients, especially with localized disease, therapies to treat metastatic disease have been less successful. Malignant tumor cells metastasize to different distant organs, with many of the most common tumors (breast, lung, prostate) metastasizing frequently to the bone. Once tumor cells have established in the bone microenvironment through a variety of mechanisms, they alter the bone microenvironment to change the balance of bone turnover leading to an increase in bone destruction (osteolytic) and/or bone formation (osteoblastic). These changes in bone remodeling result in an increased fracture risk and severe bone pain. Bone is active dynamic tissue which is being continuously remodeled by the concerted action of bone residential osteoblast
The underlying mechanism in all cases of osteoporosis is an imbalance between bone resorption and bone formation. Either bone resorption is excessive, or bone formation is diminished. Bone matrix is manufactured by the osteoblast cells, whereas bone resorption is accomplished by osteoclast cells. Trabecular bone is the sponge-like bone in the center of long bones and vertabrae. Cortical bone is the hard outer shell of bones. Because osteoblasts and osteoclasts inhabit the surface of bones, trabecular bone is more active, more subject to bone turnover, to remodeling. Long before any overt fractures occur, the small spicules of trabecular bone break and are reformed in the process known as remodeling. Bone will grow and change shape in response to physical stress. The bony prominences and attachments in runners are different in shape and size than those in weightlifters. It is an accumulation of fractures in trabecular bone that are incompletely repaired that leads to the manifestation of ...
Rats fed calcium-deprived diet were used as experimental model for studying bone modelling alterations during biochemical osteoporosis and recovery of bone loss. Such model is suitable to evaluate the possible effects exerted by PTH(1-34) in preventing as well as in recovering metabolic osteoporosis. Three-month-old Sprague Dawley male rats were divided in different groups: some fed normal diet or calcium-deprived diet with/without 40µg/Kg/day PTH(1-34), provided by Eli Lilly-USA, for 4 weeks and some with restoration of normal diet with/without PTH (1-34) for further 4 weeks. To evaluate the occurrence of osteogenesis during the first 4 weeks of the experimental period, rats received three labels of bone deposition at 1st, 20th and 27th day (and then were sacrificed); during the successive 4 weeks (in which those rats previously fed with calcium-deprived diet had restoration of normal diet), animals received three labels of bone deposition at 1st, 7th and 14th day. Histomorphometrical analyses ...
The aim of this study was to explore the hierarchical nature of the two major bone types in rats. By using a variety of analytical techniques, we were able to characterize the structural and compositional properties of cortical and trabecular bone, as well as to determine the best mathematical model to predict the tissues mechanical properties.. Our hierarchical analysis demonstrated that the differences between cortical and trabecular bone reside mainly at the micro- and macrostructural levels. Our findings are consistent with those of previous studies: modulus of elasticity and yield strength values were significantly lower in trabecular bone specimens [7,24,26,27,29,30]. Although not evidenced in our study, Choi & Goldstein [7] made the same asseveration, emphasizing the higher mineral density values seen in trabecular bone. These findings can be explained by the configuration of lamellar/collagen fibres within the tissue, along with other microstructural characteristics that altogether ...
Bone mass is the amount of bone tissue in the skeleton and can keep growing until around the age of 30 years. There the bones would have reached their maximum strength and density, which is known as peak bone mass (PBM). At about age 40, bone mass density (BMD) begins to diminish gradually in both men and women, but bone loss increases greatly in women after menopause because of the effects of estrogens effect on bone. For men, they continue to have bone loss, but the rate is much lower than that of women of the same age, until age 70, when both genders experience the same rate of bone loss ...
The invention is directed toward a formable bone composition for application to a bone defect site to promote new bone growth at the site which comprises a new bone growth inducing compound of demineralized lyophilized allograft bone particles. The particle size ranges from about 0.1 mm to about 1.0 cm and is mixed in a hydrogel carrier containing a sodium phosphate saline buffer, the hydrogel component of the carrier ranging from about 1.0 to 5.0% of the composition and a pH between 6.8-7.4 with one or more additives of a cellular material, growth factor, demineralized bone chips or mineralized bone chips.
To explore the influence of inflammatory processes on bone formation, we applied a new in vivo screening model. Confined biological pockets were first created in rabbits as a response to implanted bone cement discs. These biomembrane pockets were subsequently used to study the effects of inflammatory stimuli on ectopic bone ... read more formation within biphasic calcium phosphate (BCP) constructs loaded with TNF-α, lipopolysaccharide (LPS) or lipoteichoic acid (LTA), all with or without bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2. Analysis of bone formation after 12 weeks demonstrated that the inflammatory mediators were not bone-inductive in combination with the BCP alone, but inhibited or enhanced BMP-induced bone formation. LPS was associated with a strong inhibition of bone formation by BMP-2, while LTA and TNF-α showed a positive interaction with BMP-2. Since the biomembrane pockets did not interfere with bone formation and prevented the leakage of pro-inflammatory compounds to the surrounding ...
Results:. In order of decreasing strength of association, estrogen use, non-insulin-dependent diabetes, thiazide use, increased weight, greater muscle strength, later age at menopause, and greater height were independently associated with higher bone mass. Gastric surgery, age, history of maternal fracture, smoking, and caffeine intake were associated with lower bone mass (all P , 0.05). For example, we found that 2 or more years of estrogen use was associated with a 7.2% increase in distal radius bone mass, whereas gastrectomy was associated with an 8.2% decrease in bone mass. The associations between bone mass and dietary calcium intake and rheumatoid arthritis were inconsistent. Alcohol use, physical activity, use of calcium supplements, pregnancy, breast-feeding, parental nationality, and hair color were among the many variables not associated with bone mass. Multivariate models accounted for 20% to 35% of the total variance of bone mass. ...
Method for bone reinforcement, fixation and treatment of diseased or fractured bones including a supporting structure optionally coated with therapeutic agent is provided. The supporting structure or device used in the method may be collapsible upon deployment at the surgical site, and include fixation features such as anchors to securely position in place once deployed. Bone cement or other material may be provided to alternatively secure the positioned supporting structure for treatment. The disclosed method includes, for example, a method of repairing a bone fracture comprising: accessing a fracture along a length of a bone through a bony protuberance at an access point at an end of a bone; advancing a bone fixation device into a space through the access point at the end of the bone; bending a portion of the bone fixation device along its length to traverse the fracture; and locking the bone fixation device into place within the space of the bone.

Although its the largest bone in the human body, the femur (thigh bone) is not immune to fracture, particularly at its most vulnerable point: the femoral neck. This is a bridge of bone that joins the top of the thigh bone to the femoral head (the "ball" that goes into the hip joints ball and socket joint).. Bisphosphonates have been scientifically proven to cause weakness in this area of the thigh bone, as an unpublished study points out in no uncertain terms. According to this remarkable (and cleverly covered-up) research, bisphosphonates hinder the bodys daily bone repair mechanism by binding to the tiny microcracks bones experience every day as a result of normal use.1. When it comes to the femoral neck, this is particularly damaging, because this small area of bone takes a tremendous amount of force and therefore experiences more microdamage every day that, under normal bone remodeling conditions, is repaired on a daily basis while you rest. In fact, much of your bodys daily bone repair ...
Obese adults have a lower risk of hip and vertebral fracture, but a greater risk of lower limb and proximal humerus fracture, compared to adults with a normal body mass index (BMI). Differences in fracture risk by skeletal site in obesity might be attributed to differences in bone mineral density (BMD), bone microstructure and bone strength between obese and normal BMI individuals and/or differences in physical function, possibly related to fall frequency and/or direction. The role of vitamin D in bone metabolism and physical function in obesity is unclear. The effect of obesity on bone microstructure and strength in young and older, men and women, has not been investigated in a matched case control design. BMD, microstructure and strength were determined using novel imaging technologies. The roles of various adipose compartments and biochemical factors on BMD and microarchitecture were investigated. Physical function and vitamin D metabolism of obese and normal BMI individuals was compared. ...
Presented is a metallic cannulated rivet adapted for implantation in a bone mass through use of arthroscopic or open surgery for attachment of soft tissue thereto. The rivet in a first configuration is implanted, following which, a portion of the implanted rivet projecting from the bone site and penetrating the soft tissue is reformed in situ to clamp the soft tissue to the bone site. In a second aspect, the invention comprises the method and instrumentalities for effecting implantation of the rivet and reformation thereof in situ to mechanically clamp the soft tissue to the bone site.
