Dose Effects of Propranolol on Cancellous and Cortical Bone in Ovariectomized Adult Rats
Animal studies suggest that bone remodeling is under β-adrenergic control via the sympathetic nervous system. The purpose of this study was to examine the preventive effect of different doses ofExpand

Severe bone alterations under beta2 agonist treatments: bone mass, microarchitecture and strength analyses in female rats.
AIMS Beta2 adrenergic agonists are widely used in therapeutics and as doping agents by athletes. However, their effects on bone tissue, especially bone microarchitecture, remain poorly understood.Expand

Low dose beta‐blocker prevents ovariectomy‐induced bone loss in rats without affecting heart functions
Findings from animal studies have suggested that bone remodeling is under beta‐adrenergic control. However, the level of adrenergic inhibition required to achieve the most favorable effects on theExpand

Bone geometry and strength adaptations to physical constraints inherent in different sports: comparison between elite female soccer players and swimmers
Sports training characterized by impacts or weight-bearing activity is well known to induce osteogenic effects on the skeleton. Less is known about the potential effects on bone strength andExpand

Bone mineral density in prepubertal obese and control children: relation to body weight, lean mass, and fat mass
The aim of the study was to determine the influence of obesity on bone status in prepubertal children. This study included 20 obese prepubertal children (10.7 ± 1.2 years old) and 23Expand

Cumulative effects of calcium supplementation and physical activity on bone accretion in premenarchal children: a double-blind randomised placebo-controlled trial.
High calcium intake combined with physical activity during childhood have been shown to improve bone mass accrual and bone mineral density. Our aim was to study the combined effect of calcium andExpand
