Estrogens exert positive effects on the quantity and quality of bone, including the maintenance of osteocytes through the inhibition of their apoptosis. Ideally, selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) confer all of the positive bone-associated effects of estrogens without any adverse effects. In a similar way to estrogen, the raloxifene analog LY 117018 has been shown to prevent bone loss in ovariectomized (OVX) rats. In this study, we investigated whether the osteocyte-sparing effect… CONTINUE READING
