Effect of vitamin K(2) on lumbar vertebral bone: histomorphometric analyses in experimental osteoporotic rats.

Abstract

The in-vivo effect of vitamin K(2) on bone metabolism was investigated by histochemical and morphometric methods, using an animal model of osteoporosis. Eighteen female Wistar rats were divided into three groups. Rats in group A had sham ovariectomies, group B were ovariectomized, and group C were ovariectomized and received vitamin K(2), at 10 mg/kg per… (More)
