Bone Density of Large Newborn Infants and Infants of Diabetic Mothers

2014-07-23 21:09:19 | BioPortfolio

Summary

Bone density was found to be impaired among lage babies and infants of diabetic mothers as found in small group studies. The assumption is that large weight decreases fetal movements and causes decreased bone mineralization.The aim of the study is to compare 2 study groups - of large infants and infants of diabetic mothers to each other and to controls.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.

Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.

A humanized monoclonal antibody and an inhibitor of the RANK LIGAND, which regulates OSTEOCLAST differentiation and bone remodeling. It is used as a BONE DENSITY CONSERVATION AGENT in the treatment of OSTEOPOROSIS.

Rare autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by delayed closing of CRANIAL SUTURES, short stature, ACRO-OSTEOLYSIS of distal phalanges, dental and MAXILLOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES and an increase in bone density that results in frequent BONE FRACTURES. It is associated with BONE RESORPTION defect due to mutations in the lysosomal cysteine protease CATHEPSIN K.

An abnormal hardening or increased density of bone tissue.
