Since urinary N telopeptide has less bio analytical variability and non-modifiable factors, urinary N telopeptide can be considered as an ideal bone resorption biomarker.
VD deficiency could also increase the secretion of PTH, while an increased level of PTH could induce bone resorption and bone loss.[25] Barcelo et al .[26] reported that PTH was positively correlated with AHI.
To assess the bone resorption pits on the calvariae, samples were washed thoroughly with PBS and scanned with microfocus computed tomography (ScanXmate-E090, Comscan, Kanagawa, Japan).
OPG inhibits RANKL induced bone resorption by binding to RANKL, and thereby preventing its access to the receptor RANK (Silva & Bilezikan).
Earliest sign of any bone resorption is indirectly by the expansion of medullary cavity on the endocortical side since the cortical bone loss is slow to develop.
However, the fraction of OC incorporated into the organic bone matrix can be liberated during osteoclastic bone resorption. Thus, bone resorption can potentially directly impact serum OC concentrations, though the practical significance of this effect is unclear.
Therefore this natural compound could be a potential anti-resorptive drug for treatment of metabolic bone disorders characterized by excessive osteoclastic bone resorption, following animal and clinical trials.
Larger cysts can cause boat-shaped resorption at the location.1 Our case was consistent with the other case reports because of female gender and bone resorption. Diagnosis of nasolabial cysts is based on the clinical findings and physical examination.
Sitton Professor of the Department of Nutrition, Food and Exercise Sciences and Director of the Center for Advancing Exercise and Nutrition Research on Aging (CAENRA) in the College of Human Sciences, was due, in part, to the ability of dried plums to suppress the rate of bone resorption, or the breakdown of bone, which tends to exceed the rate of new bone growth as people age.
TNF-[alpha]-Mediated Mechanical Loading-Induced Osteoclast Formation and Bone Resorption
Nrf2 deficiency tended to increase osteoblastic markers and significantly enhanced osteoclastic markers in sham-operated animals indicating an increased bone turnover with a main effect on bone resorption. We have also shown an increased production of oxidative stress in bone marrow-derived cells from sham-operated or ovariectomized [Nrf2.sup.-/-] mice and a higher responsiveness of bone marrow-derived cells to osteoclastogenic stimuli in vitro.
In human adults, a diet containing P additives increases urinary hydroxyproline excretion, a bone resorption marker [1].
