Obesity and osteoporosis-connections between adipose tissue and bone.

Summary of "Obesity and osteoporosis-connections between adipose tissue and bone."

The adipose and osseous tissue, although both derived from the connective tissues, perform different functions. In the common opinion, obesity might be a protective factor against bone loss and osteoporosis. The adipose tissue is a recognized major endocrine organ, producing a number of active biological substances, which affect the bone mass. Adipocyte and osteoblast are derived from the same mesenchymal stem cells. Therefore abnormal secretion of adipocytokines may play an important role not only in pathogenesis of the obesity, but also can influence the bone . It is supposed that obesity might have a protective effect on bone tissue in postmenopausal women, by increasing the load on the axial skeleton and because of its hormonal activity.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.

Brown fat-like adipose tissue that develops in WHITE ADIPOSE TISSUE from non-MYOGENIC REGULATORY FACTOR 5 expressing cell lineage.

Specialized connective tissue composed of fat cells (ADIPOCYTES). It is the site of stored FATS, usually in the form of TRIGLYCERIDES. In mammals, there are two types of adipose tissue, the WHITE FAT and the BROWN FAT. Their relative distributions vary in different species with most adipose tissue being white.

A nonhormonal medication for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women. This drug builds healthy bone, restoring some of the bone loss as a result of osteoporosis.

Neoplasms composed of fatty tissue or connective tissue made up of fat cells in a meshwork of areolar tissue. The concept does not refer to neoplasms located in adipose tissue.
