The purpose of this study is to understand how different types of mechanical forces can influence bone adaptation (and make bones stronger, potentially). Forces acting on bones cause mechanical strain. In small animals, strain magnitude and rate have been shown to stimulate bone adaptation. This study is designed to test the degree to which strain magnitude and rate govern bone adaptation in healthy adult women.
Clinical trial to investigate effect of voluntary upper extremity loading in combination with anabolic osteoporosis therapy.
The purpose of this study is to identify the best way to prevent bone loss in the first years after menopause. The HOPE study will compare bone loss at 12 months in women: 1) who take calcium and vitamin D only; 2) who take calcium and vitamin D plus the medication "risedronate"; or 3) who take calcium and vitamin D plus participate in bone-loading exercises. Our central hypothesis is that improvements in bone health will be greater in women randomized to bone-loading exercise...
This study will determine the usefulness of pulsing electromagnetic field (PEMF) technology to reverse or reduce the bone loss (osteopenia) that occurs in the forearm after fracture or surgery.
This study hypothesize that radius subjecting to mechanical loading may affect excitability of alpha motor neuron innervating muscle, based on its bone mineral density or bone mineral content. A total of 80 voluntaries are planned to include in this study. Vibration will be applied the right forearm. Muscle electrical activity will be measured on ipsilateral and contralateral flexor carpi radialis (FCR) muscle at rest as EMGrms by surface electromyography (EMG). The re...
A longitudinal, randomized, controlled, single-center Phase IV clinical trial will be performed to assess changes in bone mineral density (BMD) among voluntary apheresis blood donors. The primary outcome measure will be clinically significant decline in BMD at the lumbar spine assessed by dual-energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA).
The purpose of this study is to evaluate the effect of AMG 785 on parameters of bone quality of the forearm using peripheral Quantitative Computed Tomography (pQCT) following multiple subcutaneous dose administrations of AMG 785 in postmenopausal women with low bone mass.
Without blood flow, bone cannot maintain its integrity. Bone blood flow responds to various local and systemic factors, however, bone perfusion in humans remains relatively unstudied. The investigators will study key mechanisms that regulate bone perfusion in able-bodied and contrast responses to those with spinal cord injury (SCI). SCI is a model of chronic reduced loading with loss of sympathetic regulation. In tibial cortical bone, the investigators will: 1) determine the im...
The study design is a prospective, randomized controlled trial comparing extended elbow and flexed elbow casting. This study design will provide the highest quality evidence to investigate our primary hypothesis that extended elbow casting for proximal both bone forearm fractures will result in less loss of fracture alignment. The study population eligible for screening will be patients with open growth plates and both bone forearm fractures.
The purpose of this study is to evaluate sequential fracture healing with radius/ulna fractures and compare ultrasound to radiographs.
Inadequate ridge width to allow implant placement, it noted that when extraction takes place and ridge preservation is not utilized the site of extraction could lose 40% to 60% of bone height and width within 2 to 3 years and subsequent loss of 0.25% to 0.5% annually. it reported as much as 4 mm loss of ridge width in extraction alone sites within 6 months. Using an atraumatic tooth extraction technique preserves osseous walls thereby improving the chances of osseous graft succ...
The present study will investigate the impact of altered substrate availability on muscle atrophy, insulin sensitivity and muscle protein synthesis following short-term forearm immobilization
comparison of alveolar bone resorbtion/ changes for a period of 12 month post loading of different designs and brands of oral implants. in this study, a comparison between straumann SLA-active implants to MIS Mistral and Mistral -X implants.

Rationale: Mechanical loading is well-known to have a strong anabolic effect on bone. It has therefore been proposed that a mechanical intervention could be an effective non-pharmacological approach to treat bone loss associated with conditions such as osteopenia and osteoporosis. Data from in vitro experiments indicate that the purine nucleotide adenosine 5'-triphosphate (ATP) is released by bone cells and mediates cellular crosstalk via P2 purinergic receptors in response to ...
The purpose of this prospective randomized clinical study was to compare implant survival, patient satisfaction, and radiographic, clinical, and aesthetic outcomes following immediate loading (IL) and delayed loading (DL) of single dental implants after 1,3 and 5 years of follow-up.
Bone mineral density (BMD) is decreased after Roux-en-Y gastric bypass (RYGB) but whether RYGB induces changes in BMD beyond adaptation to major weight loss is not known. We aim to investigate BMD changes in weight bearing (hip, lumbal columna) and in non-weight bearing (forearm) regions before and after maximal weight loss at 1 year and after weight stabilisation at 4 years after RYGB. Moreover, plasma markers of bone turnover will be studied at fasting and during oral glucose...
This study will investigate the effects on bone quality of a medication (Teriparatide) used to treat people with severe osteoporosis. Teriparatide is the only bone formation therapy that has been approved for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Canada. Osteoporosis is currently diagnosed using a bone mineral density (BMD) scan, which measures the amount of mineral (calcium etc) in bones (the higher the amount of mineral, the lower the fracture risk). Although BMD is...
Periprosthetic bone loss caused by stress-shielding effect, a phenomenon of bone atrophy under mechanical unloading after THR implantation, further compromises the longevity of implant. The prospective randomized study is aimed to investigate the periprosthetic bone loss after primary total hip replacements.
We create a randomized clinical trial between treatment with and without Kirschner wire fixation of a stable dislocated distal both-bone forearm fracture.
This is a study to determine if Fosamax (alendronate), a medication approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women, is effective in decreasing the rate of bone loss which often begins to increase in the three to five years preceding the menopause (perimenopausal transition). During the three to five years prior to the menopause, the rate of bone loss increases. One way that physicians treat this is w...
We create a randomized clinical trial between the treatment with above elbow armcast alone and the treatment of above elbow in combination with a short arm cast for stable midshaft both-bone forearm fractures.
The objective of this study is to assess changes bone mineral density and bone metabolism after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery. The investigators hypothesize that weight loss after laparoscopic Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery will be associated with increased bone turnover, changes in bone metabolism, and loss of bone mass.
This single arm study will assess the efficacy and safety of loading doses of intravenous Bondronat in patients with breast cancer and malignant bone disease experiencing moderate to severe bone pain. Patients will receive an intravenous infusion of 6mg Bondronat on days 1, 2 and 3. The anticipated time on study treatment is 3 months, and the target sample size is
Thiazolidinediones (TZDs) are a commonly used antidiabetic drugs currently used by over a million patients in the United States. Recent studies have shown that treatment with TZD may increase the risk of bone fractures. The cause of bone loss is not known. We believe that TZD may cause increased accumulation of fat in the bone marrow, which may cause decrease bone formation and weak bones. .
