New concepts and methods of study in bone biomechanics defy the prevailing idea that bone strength is determined by a systemically-controlled "mineralized mass" which grows until reaching a peak and then is lost at individually-specific rates. In case of bones, "mass" represents actually the substratum of a structure, the stiffness of which does not depend(More)
The mandible and maxilla of two edentulous women, treated during 25 weeks with oral pamidronate, were monitored by peripheral quantitative tomography (pQCT). Whole bone volumetric mineral density failed to show meaningful variations after treatment. However, an analysis of separated cortical and medullar areas disclosed focal bone loss at the right mandible(More)
The mitogen activated protein kinases (MAPKs) have been classified into at least six subfamilies, among which ERK1/2, JNK1/2 and p38 MAPK are the most extensively studied. The steroid hormones 1alpha,25-dihydroxy-Vitamin D(3) and 17beta-estradiol promote biological responses through activation of MAPK cascades in various cell types. We previously reported(More)
Continuous oral pamidronate (APD), 1000 mg/day, was administered to 14 patients with rheumatoid arthritis. A control group of 13 patients with similar conditions received placebo under a double blind randomized study design. Periarticular erosion scores were significantly higher in the control group after 12 months treatment. This was attributed to a(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to test the bioequivalence of two alendronate tablets (CAS 121268-17-5; Marvil 10 and Marvil 70 as test formulations, in short "test"; reference formulation, in short "reference") in vitro and in vivo in healthy adult male subjects and to describe a mode for researching the bisphosphonate oral formulation pharmaceutical(More)
"In vitro" effects of disodium pamidronate on hydroxyapatite crystals morphology, and some "in vivo" data from bone powder of tibia and vertebrae from treated young and mature rabbits are here reported. Hydroxyapatite, synthesized following Rigoli et al method, and bone powder from rabbits were studied with X-ray, infrared and raman emission techniques for(More)
The net absorbable amount of pamidronate (APD), according to AUC values assessed in blood, in the customary dose interval of 24 hours, was found to be similar in 8 healthy young volunteers, who received single doses of 3 capsules of 100 mg APD (AUC0-24 = 510.3 +/- 91.5 micrograms/L x h-1) and 2 tablets of 150 mg (AUC0-24 = 580.5 +/- 117.6 micrograms/L x(More)
The activity of olpadronate labelled with technetium-99m(99mTc) was monitored in plasma and urine samples after single oral (925 MBq 99mTc/10 mg, coadministered with 50 mg cold drug) and intravenous (925 MBq 99mTc/5 mg) administrations to two groups of patients with different rates of bone turnover. The first group comprised high bone turnover (HBTO)(More)
