Our objective was to determine the effects of SCH 57068 alone and with 17 beta-estradiol (E(2)) on bone, lipids and uteri in ovariectomized (OVX) rats. In OVX animals lumbar vertebral and femoral bone mineral density (BMD) were significantly higher after 12 weeks of treatment with SCH 57068 than in untreated OVX controls. Similarly BMD was superior in OVX +(More)
