• 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)
  • influences
  • These data point toward the importance of considering paternal genotype in studies exploring the developmental origins of osteoporotic fracture and raise intriguing mechanistic questions about the gender specificity of influences on intrauterine bone mineral accrual. (ox.ac.uk)
  • 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)
