Iron lactate-induced osteopenia in male Sprague-Dawley rats.


Osteopenia was induced in rats fed a diet containing 50,000 ppm (5%) iron lactate for 2 or 4 weeks. Blood chemistry, urinalysis, and bone histomorphometry of the proximal tibial metaphysis were performed. Urinary pyridinoline and deoxypyridinoline and the osteoclast number per bone surface were selected for the measurement of dynamic resorption. The… (More)
