Effect of daidzein, a soy isoflavone, on bone metabolism in Cd-treated ovariectomized rats.


This study compared the ability of daidzein, a soy isoflavone, with that of 17beta-estradiol to prevent bone loss in cadmium (Cd)-exposed ovariectomized (OVX) rats during growth. Four week-old female Wistar rats were randomly assigned to five treatment groups of 9 rats each, either (1) sham-operated (SH); (2) OVX and placed on experimental diets (OVX); (3… (More)
