Simulating certain aspects of hypogravity: effects on bone maturation in the non-weight bearing skeleton.


This study reports the effects of simulation of certain aspects of hypogravity (via partial skeletal unloading) on the growth and maturation of the non-weight bearing mandibles of 41-d and 1-yr-old rats. Partial skeletal unloading was effected by elevating the hindquarters (PULEH), and this simulation was controlled with normally loaded animals fed either… (More)
