The aim of this paper is to develop a multiscale hierarchical hybrid model based on finite element analysis and neural network computation to link mesoscopic scale (trabecular network level) and macroscopic (whole bone level) to simulate the process of bone remodelling. As whole bone simulation, including the 3D reconstruction of trabecular level bone, is(More)
Mechanical loading during growth magnifies the normal increase in bone diameter occurring in long bone shafts, but the response to loading in long bone ends remains unclear. The aim of the study was to investigate the effects of tennis playing during growth at the distal radius, comparing the bone response at trabecular and cortical skeletal sites. The(More)
BACKGROUND Different models are used to study the effects of chronic alcohol consumption on bone tissue in the rat. However, the current models take several months to show indices of osteopenia as observed in chronic drinkers. Numerous studies have supported that chronic and intermittent exposure to ethanol vapors has predictive validity as a model of(More)
We describe the pre-planned interim analysis of fracture outcomes, health-related quality of life (HRQoL) and back pain in patients with severe osteoporosis treated with teriparatide for up to 24 months in the Extended Forsteo (Forsteo® is a registered trade name of Eli Lilly and Company) Observational Study (ExFOS), a prospective, multinational,(More)
Alcohol induced osteoporosis is characterized by a bone mass decrease and microarchitecture alterations. Having observed an excess in osteocyte apoptosis, we aimed to assess the bone tissue biochemistry, particularly in the osteocyte and its environment. For this purpose, we used a model of alcohol induced osteoporosis in rats. Bone sections of cortical(More)
This 2-year trial evaluated the efficacy and tolerability of a monthly oral regimen of risedronate. Postmenopausal women with osteoporosis were randomly assigned to double-blind treatment with risedronate 75 mg on 2 consecutive days each month (2CDM) or 5 mg daily. The primary end point was the percentage change from baseline in lumbar spine bone mineral(More)
In this paper, we consider a stochastic anisotropic model for trabecular bone x-ray images. In [1], a fractal analysis based on isotropic Fractional Brownian Fields was proposed to characterize bone microar-chitecture. However anisotropy measurement is of special interest for the diagnosis of osteoporosis [7]. We propose to model trabecular bone(More)
BACKGROUND Serum C-reactive protein (CRP) is an independent risk factor for the development of cardiovascular diseases in healthy post-menopausal women. Oral unopposed and progestin-combined 17beta-estradiol (E(2)) increase serum CRP in post-menopausal women. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of tibolone, a steroid with estrogenic, androgenic(More)
