Biophysical study of bone mineral in biopsies of osteoporotic patients before and after long-term treatment with fluoride.

Abstract

Crystallographic characteristics of bone mineral were examined in a group of 60 osteoporotic patients before and after 3 to 6 years of fluoride therapy. The age of the mineral was evaluated by means of X-ray absorption, as degree of mineralization of bone tissue (MDBT). Crystallinity was evaluated by measuring both X-ray diffraction line broadening, beta… (More)
