Urinary assays for type I collagen metabolites provide a non invasive index of bone resorption in humans, and are widely used in the management of patients with metabolic bone diseases. The specific aims of this study were to investigate the feasibility of using commercial human assay kits for quantifying the urinary excretion of type I collagen metabolites(More)
Bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BALP) shows potential as a marker of bone formation in the dog. Recent studies have indicated that serum BALP may provide a useful, non-invasive indicator of skeletal health in dogs, and as a diagnostic and prognostic marker in the management of dogs with musculoskeletal or metabolic disorders. Two assay techniques (one(More)
The effects were studied of 10 days' exposure to daily repetitive, specific vestibular stimulation on motor performance of children with Down's syndrome and normal children. A quantitative assessment of vestibular function was made in these children including the habituation response of postrotatory nystagmus. Control groups were included. Both the children(More)
