Increased concentrations of prostaglandin D2 during post-fracture bone remodeling.

OBJECTIVE To test the hypothesis that increased concentrations of prostaglandin D(2) (PGD(2)) correlate with bone remodeling. Studies using isolated bone cells indicate that PGD(2) may be implicated in the regulation of bone homeostasis, with a positive influence on bone anabolism. We studied patients with traumatic fractures and age- and sex-matched… CONTINUE READING
