• femoral neck
  • The results of the study, which focused on the percent change in individual bone mineral density over the five-year period were as follows: the premenopausal subjects showed a mean increase in BMD of 6.6% at the femoral neck, 2.0% for the total hip, and 1.0% for the total lumbar spine. (scirp.org)
  • In contrast, post-menopausal subjects revealed a mean decrease in bone mineral density (BMD) of ﹣6.0%, ﹣8.1%, and ﹣5.6% in the femoral neck, total hip, and total lumbar spine, respectively. (scirp.org)
  • mineral content
  • Previous work within the group has identified associations of a 300bp differentially methylated region within the CDKN2A locus with bone mineral content, bone area and areal bone mineral density in offspring from the Southampton Women's Survey(SWS) cohort. (bl.uk)
  • As methylation of CDKN2A increases, bone mineral content, bone area and areal bone mineral density all decrease at both 4 and 6 years of age. (bl.uk)
  • Specifically, the bone mineral content was measured using DEXA analysis of the proximal femur and lumbar spine of nine female Bikram Yoga instructors between the ages of 30 and 59, who not only participated in a minimum of 3 classes (4.5 hours) a week, but also actively taught Bikram Yoga classes. (scirp.org)
  • RESULTS: After adjusting the paternal DXA indices for father's age and the neonatal for baby's gestational age and age at DXA scan, there were highly significant positive associations between baby's whole body bone area, bone mineral content, and bone mineral density and the corresponding indices in the father (P = 0.003, 0.0002, 0.046, respectively) among female infants.

  • increase
  • Treatment of both SaOS-2 cells and primary osteoblasts with siRNAs against ANRIL caused a decrease in cell number, a decrease in cell proliferation, an increase in cells in G0/G1 phase of the cell cycle and, in SaOS-2 cells, caused an increase in the expression of bone differentiation markers RUNX2 and ALP.

  • calcium
  • Calcium-rich foods like soy products, dairy products, grains, fresh green vegetables and breads can prove to be very helpful in terms building stronger bones. (indiebound.org.au)
  • mass
  • However, the paternal determinants of neonatal bone mass are not known. (ox.ac.uk)
  • correlation and regression methods were used to explore the parental determinants of neonatal bone mass. (ox.ac.uk)
  • lifestyle
  • The treatment primarily consists of a combination of drugs and suitable lifestyle changes that help in minimising the rate of bone resorption. (indiebound.org.au)
  • associations
  • Associations were found between CpG methylation in RXRA and offspring bone outcomes at birth in both the SWS and MAVIDOS cohorts. (bl.uk)
