β-Ecdysone Augments Peak Bone Mass in Mice of Both Sexes.

One of the strongest predictors for osteoporosis is peak bone mass. Interventions to augment peak bone mass have yet to be developed. β-Ecdysone (βEcd), a natural steroid-like compound produced by a...

Effects of Intermittent Administration of Parathyroid Hormone on Bone Augmentation in Rat Calvarium.

This study examined the effects of parathyroid hormone (PTH) on bone augmentation beyond the skeletal envelope within a plastic cap in rat calvaria.

Habitual Physical Activity, Sedentary Behaviour and Bone Health in Rheumatoid Arthritis.

Associations between habitual physical activity levels and bone health in rheumatoid arthritis (RA) were assessed. Twenty nine female patients with RA were assessed for bone mineral density (BMD), and...

Effects of Decreased Occlusal Loading during Growth on the Mandibular Bone Characteristics.

Bone mass and mineralization are largely influenced by loading. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the reaction of the entire mandibular bone in response to decreased load during growth. It is ...

Micro-computed tomography and histomorphometric analysis of the effects of platelet-rich fibrin on bone regeneration in the rabbit calvarium.

The present study aimed to investigate the effectiveness of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) on bone regeneration when used alone or in combination with hydroxyapatite (HA)/beta-tricalcium phosphate (βTCP)...

Clinical Trials [2348 Associated Clinical Trials listed on BioPortfolio]

Impact of Vitamin D Supplementation on Lactation Associated Bone Loss

Studies have shown that lactation is associated with a loss of bone density from four to seven percent at the spine and hip among women who lactate for six months. Decline in bone density ...

An Investigation Into the Short Term Effect of APOMINE in Patients With Osteoporosis or Low Bone Mass

Osteoporosis affects millions of postmenopausal women in the USA. The current approved treatments are all drugs that prevent bone loss and possibly result in small gains in bone mass. An...

A Transiliac Crest Bone Histology and Histomorphometry Study in Postmenopausal Women With Low Bone Mass or Osteoporosis Previously Treated With Denosumab

To characterize the effects of discontinuation of denosumab therapy on variables of bone histology in postmenopausal women with low bone mass or osteoporosis. Subjects who have received d...

Improving Low Bone Mass With Vibration Therapy in Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS)

This is a prospective randomized controlled trial investigating the effect of vibration therapy on bone mineral density (BMD) and bone quality in AIS subjects suffering from osteopenia (lo...

Bone Mass Accrual in Adolescent Athletes

The adolescent and young adult years are a critical window in time for bone mineral accrual. More than 90% of peak bone mass is achieved by 18 years, and data indicate that insults sustain...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A genetic metabolic disorder resulting from serum and bone alkaline phosphatase deficiency leading to hypercalcemia, ethanolamine phosphatemia, and ethanolamine phosphaturia. Clinical manifestations include severe skeletal defects resembling vitamin D-resistant rickets, failure of the calvarium to calcify, dyspnea, cyanosis, vomiting, constipation, renal calcinosis, failure to thrive, disorders of movement, beading of the costochondral junction, and rachitic bone changes. (From Dorland, 27th ed)

A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.

An analytical method used in determining the identity of a chemical based on its mass using mass analyzers/mass spectrometers.

Decrease, loss, or removal of the mineral constituents of bones. Temporary loss of bone mineral content is especially associated with space flight, weightlessness, and extended immobilization. OSTEOPOROSIS is permanent, includes reduction of total bone mass, and is associated with increased rate of fractures. CALCIFICATION, PHYSIOLOGIC is the process of bone remineralizing.
