Osteoporosis is a debilitating disease that results in nearly 1.3 million fractures per year in the United States. The cost of treating these fractures has been estimated to be as high as $10 billion per year. These costs are expected to more than double during the next 50 years unless comprehensive programs of prevention and treatment are initiated. Both(More)
In conclusion, there is considerable support for the thesis that, in addition to its inhibitory effects on bone resorption, calcitonin enhances osteoblastic bone formation both in vitro and in vivo. These data are compatible with the presence of calcitonin receptors in a variety of osteoblast-like cell lines [37]. The chronic effects of calcitonin to(More)
The bidirectional transport of calcium in rat liver was studied using slices labeled with Ca(47) in a closed two compartment system. Steady-state conditions were observed with influx and efflux transfer coefficients of 0.070 and 0.018 per minute, respectively. The rapidly exchanging cell fraction of calcium existed at a concentration three times higher than(More)
Many papers were published on both Paget's disease and fibrous dysplasia during the past year. In Paget's disease, evidence for a generalized, probably viral disorder of the skeleton has been adduced, although focal radiologic features dominate the clinical picture. Unusual clinical manifestations were highlighted in several clinical reports. A search for(More)
A workshop devoted to a discussion of the role of cytokines in bone metabolism convened on October 1, 1992 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during the annual meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. Five discussants were invited to present their views regarding this subject and approximately 20 scientists participated in an active discussion(More)
On August 29, 1990, during the annual meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research, the third in a series of basic scientific symposia was convened on the subject of "Physical and Biochemical Factors in Bone Metabolism." Nine speakers and approximately 20 discussants attended the symposium. Dr. Louis V. Avioli offered some introductory(More)
