Abstract: Biochemical measurements of bone turnover are helpful in the study of the pathophysiology of skeletal metabolism and growth. However, interpretation of their results is difficult because they depend on age, pubertal stage, growth velocity, mineral accrual, hormonal regulation, nutritional status, circadian variation, day-to-day variation, method of expression of results of urinary markers, specificity for bone tissue, sensitivity and specificity of assays. Three markers of bone… Expand
Assessment of bone turnover markers and bone mineral density in normal short boys
TLDR
The data suggest that prepubertal boys with CDPG have normal bone turnover, however, their significantly higher urinary D-pyd levels relative to those of FSS and control groups might be an indicator of later development of osteoporosis. Expand
Clinical utility of biochemical bone turnover markers in children and adolescents with osteosarcoma.
TLDR
Results suggest that bone turnover markers identify changes in bone metabolism in patients with osteosarcoma during anticancer therapy. Expand
Sex- and age-specific reference curves for serum markers of bone turnover in healthy children from 2 months to 18 years.
INTRODUCTION This study aimed to establish sex- and age-specific reference curves enabling the calculation of z-scores and to examine correlations between bone markers and anthropometric data. Expand
Chapter 90 – Biochemical Markers of Bone Metabolism
Publisher Summary This chapter focuses on the biochemical markers of bone metabolism. Biochemical markers of bone turnover may be useful tools in the diagnosis, monitoring, and follow-up ofExpand
Low bone turnover phenotype in Rett syndrome: results of biochemical bone marker analysis
TLDR
The findings of a low bone turnover state in girls with RTT suggest critical attention to medical treatment of low bone mass in young RTT patients. Expand
Children and adolescents with obesity have reduced serum bone turnover markers and 25-hydroxyvitamin D but increased parathyroid hormone concentrations - Results derived from new pediatric reference ranges.
TLDR
The body weight status has to be considered in the interpretation of pediatric OC, PINP, CTX-I, 25(OH)D and PTH levels and Consequences of childhood obesity on bone health should be carefully investigated in long-term studies. Expand
Assessment of Biochemical Bone Turnover Markers and Bone Mineral Density in Thin and Normal-Weight Children
TLDR
Assessment of bone status through measurement of bone mineral density and biochemical bone turnover markers, with special attention paid to carboxylated as well as undercarboxylation forms of osteocalcin, in the groups of thin and normal-weight children found increased concentrations of CTX and uc-OC might lead to disturbances in bone turnover and a decrease in bone mineraldensity in thin children. Expand
Biochemical Markers of Bone Turnover
TLDR
Changes in bone markers signal perturbations in bone and as such are useful as a screening tool in early drug development or to monitor temporal changes in a chronic setting. Expand
Pubertal Changes in Biochemical Markers of Growth
Puberty is a crucial period of life during which dramatic hormonal changes induce notable modifications in linear growth, bone mass and body composition. These changes are associated with variationsExpand
Serum and Urinary Osteocalcin in Healthy 7- to 19-Year-Old Finnish Children and Adolescents
TLDR
Establishment of sex- and age-specific reference intervals for urinary and serum total and carboxylated osteocalcin (OC) in 7- to 19-year-old healthy Finnish children and adolescents and the impact of anthropometry, pubertal status, and body composition on the OC values were assessed. Expand

Urinary Markers of Bone Turnover in Healthy Children and Adolescents: Age-Related Changes and Effect of Puberty
TLDR
It is indicated that bone resorption is high in children relative to that in adults, and that urinary levels of NTx, Pyr, and Dpyr change as a function of age, gender, and puberty. Expand
Nyctohemeral changes in bone turnover assessed by serum bone Gla-protein concentration and urinary deoxypyridinoline excretion: effects of growth and ageing.
TLDR
At night, there is a large increase in bone resorption and a small increase in osteoblastic activity, representing a nyctohemeral rhythm of bone turnover. Expand
Serum Osteocalcin and Bone and Liver Alkaline Phosphatase Isoforms in Healthy Children and Adolescents
ABSTRACT: We report reference values for osteocalcin and bone and liver alkaline phosphatase (ALP) isoforms in serum from 114 healthy children and adolescents, age 7–16 y. The bone and liver ALPExpand
Pyridinium crosslinks of collagen as a marker of bone resorption rates in children and adolescents: normal values and clinical application.
TLDR
It is concluded that measurement of urinary Pyr and DPyr excretion in children may be a valuable tool to assess bone resorption rates in population-based studies and in individual patients, however, only qualitative evaluation of disease severity and response to treatment seems justified. Expand
High-turnover osteopenia in preterm infants: determination of urinary pyridinium cross-links of collagen.
TLDR
A state of high bone turnover underlies the development of osteopenia in preterm infants, and there was no significant correlation between collagen cross-link excretion and either serum osteocalcin or spine BMD. Expand
A Longitudinal Study of Bone Gain in Pubertal Girls: Anthropometric and Biochemical Correlates
TLDR
It is concluded that estradiol is an important determinant of bone mineral gain in pubertal girls and is probably responsible for the reduction in bone turnover in late puberty; lean mass was the body composition parameter most closely associated with bone gain; height gain and bone gain are dissociated during the period of rapid growth at puberty. Expand
Serum markers of type I collagen formation and degradation in metabolic bone disease: Correlation with bone histomorphometry
TLDR
Serum levels of the two antigens were correlated to histomorphometric indices of bone resorption and bone formation calculated from iliac crest bone biopsies in a group of 18 individuals with high‐ and low‐turnover bone disease. Expand
Bone turnover in neonates: changes of urinary excretion rate of collagen type I cross-linked peptides during the first days of life and influence of gestational age.
TLDR
G gestational age seems to be the major determinant of bone turnover in neonates; NTx excretion rate is higher before term, it slows in proximity of delivery, and it increases significantly during the first 48 h of life. Expand
Multiple osteocalcin fragments in human urine and serum as detected by a midmolecule osteocalcin radioimmunoassay.
TLDR
Urinary OC (uOC) correlated with both skeletal alkaline phosphatase and serum OC, indices of skeletal formation, and determinations of 24-h uOC give integrated values of daily bone turnover rates indicate that uOC is better able to distinguish between normal children with high bone turnover and normal adults. Expand
Serum osteocalcin concentrations in children with metabolic bone disease.
TLDR
Serum osteocalcin holds promise as a useful marker of subacute changes in bone metabolism, particularly in children with renal failure and children with various forms of rickets. Expand
