Partial multiphase skeletal scintigraphy and single-photon emission CT of the cranium showed increased bone
metabolism in the area of the right frontal bone
, starting in the ethmoid cells in the roof of the orbit and extending slightly to the left (figure 2).
In addition, cytokines may be involved in inhibiting new bone
formation and stimulating bone
resorption, therefore resulting in decreased BMD.
No other bones
of a meat eater have been found at this site, says Murphy.
Like many other "bone
-seeking" elements, Pb from blood is incorporated into calcified tissues such as bone
and teeth, where it can remain for years (Rabinowitz 1991; O'Flaherty 1995).
Though swimming and biking are great forms of exercise, they don't stress the bones
and should be interspersed with weight-bearing activities, she says.
Jamal and colleagues (1999) provided an intervention that included osteoporosis education and bone
mineral density testing.
So if your body isn't getting enough calcium from your diet, it steals it from your bones
was accepted into Skull and Bones
and given the secret name "Temporary.
Replacement usually predominates over resorption until about age 35 when peak bone
mass is achieved.
In May 2000, all 14,000 pounds of beautiful, chocolate-colored bones
are finally assembled on a custom iron frame, now on display at Chicago's Field Museum of Natural History.
Paget's disease of bone
is a chronic (long-term) disorder that typically results in enlarged and deformed bones
strength is determined by a constant balancing act between cells that are forming new bone
versus those that are resorbing bone
Patient demographics and baseline characteristics (histologic grade of the primary cancer, number of bone
pain severity, and serum PSA levels) were well matched across treatment groups.
The "gold standard" for such grafts is a person's own bone
tissue, says V.
The researchers measured bone
mineral density with dual X-ray absorptiometry--the same test used to detect osteoporosis in humans.
