Ovariectomy enhances mechanical load-induced solute transport around osteocytes in rat cancellous bone.

Abstract

To test if osteoporosis alters mechanical load-induced interstitial fluid flow in bone, this study examined the combined effect of estrogen deficiency and external loading on solute transport around osteocytes. An in vivo tracer, FITC-labeled bovine serum albumin, was injected into anesthetized ovariectomized and control female Sprague-Dawley rats before… (More)
