Biomechanical characteristics of bone in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rats: An in-vivo randomized controlled experimental study.


AIM To investigate the in vivo effects of type I diabetes on the mechanical strength of tibial bone in a rodent model. METHODS The biomechanical effect of diabetes on the structural integrity of the tibia in streptozotocin induced diabetic Wistar rats was analysed. Induction of diabetes was achieved by an intra-peritoneal injection and confirmed by… (More)
