No data exit for distal tibia (DT), a bone site with growth plate closure at 3 months of age and with very low trabecular bone turnover rate. The purpose of this study was to characterize the response of DT to aging and immobilization (IM) in 6 to 16.5 month-old female rats. One hundred and forty six 6 month-old Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into aging controls and right hindlimb immobilization (RHLI) groups. The right hindlimb was immobilized against the abdomen with elastic bandages. Rats… CONTINUE READING
