Patients with acromegaly have a higher prevalence of vertebral fractures despite normal bone mineral density (BMD), suggesting that GH overexpression has adverse effects on skeletal architecture and strength. We used giant bovine GH (bGH) transgenic mice to analyze the effects of high serum GH levels on BMD, architecture, and mechanical strength.(More)
Toxicity study evaluating the effects of intravenous injection of SP with single- and repeated-dose in rats was performed. Single 100, 50, and 10 mg/kg doses of SP were administered and animals were monitored for 14 days. Although 10 mg/kg dose did not affect behavior and survival, 100 and 50 mg/kg doses elicited mortality, suggesting the minimum lethal(More)
