Metabolic bone disease
TLDR
Successful prevention, detection and management of metabolic bone disease are essential components of optimal geriatric health care. Expand
Hyperostosis frontalis interna: an anthropological perspective.
TLDR
Histological analysis shows that the inner table along with the closely attached dural layer play a major role in the osteogenesis of HFI, and uniform nomenclature (HFI, HCD) has been recommended to avoid ambiguity and facilitate the description of cranial hyperostoses. Expand
Mycobacterium tuberculosis complex DNA from an extinct bison dated 17,000 years before the present.
TLDR
2 separate DNA extractions were performed by 2 separate laboratories on samples from the metacarpal of an extinct long-horned bison that was radiocarbon dated at 17,870+/-230 years before present and that had pathological changes suggestive of tuberculosis. Expand

  • 15 May 2005
TLDR
Examination of skeletons from populations with clinically diagnosed bejel and yaws revealed bone alterations distinctive to those diseases, clearly separating them from alterations due to syphilis, transcending the limitations of current DNA and immunologic technologies. Expand
Hydroxychloroquine concentration-response relationships in patients with rheumatoid arthritis.
TLDR
There is a weak, but predictable, relationship between blood DHCQ concentrations and efficacy of treatment with HCQ, and there is an association between gastrointestinal adverse events and elevated blood HCQ concentrations. Expand
The Origin and Antiquity of Syphilis: Paleopathological Diagnosis and Interpretation [and Comments and Reply]
TLDR
De nombreux squelettes indiquent la presence d'une infection a treponeme non venerien en Amerique avant l'arrivee des Espagnols. Expand
Porosity: a curiosity without diagnostic significance.

  • Medicine
  • American journal of physical anthropology
  • 1 December 1997
TLDR
Porosity appears to be a curiosity that has no clinical correlation and is not a sign of an identifiable rheumatologic disorder, and should be deleted as an identifier for osteoarthritis. Expand
Facet Orientation in the Thoracolumbar Spine: Three-dimensional Anatomic and Biomechanical Analysis
TLDR
A comprehensive database for facet orientation in the thoracolumbar vertebrae and to determine the normal human condition are established and asymmetry in facet orientation is a normal characteristic inThe thorax. Expand
Why do we fail in aging the skull from the sagittal suture?
TLDR
The debate over whether cranial suture ossification represents a pathologic or an age-predictable pathologic process also stimulated a comparison with age and two stress markers, hyperostosis frontalis interna and tuberculosis, which found Sagittal suture closure to be age-independent and sexually biased. Expand
Treponemal disease revisited: skeletal discriminators for yaws, bejel, and venereal syphilis.
TLDR
Examination of population frequency, demographics, character, and skeletal distribution of osseous treponemal damage in skeletal sites provides clear, reproducible clues to the identity of the underlying trePonematosis: bejel and yaws are common in the population. Expand
