STRONTIUM (Sr; MW 87.62) is ranked fifteenth in the order of the elemental crustal abundance in which it occurs at a concentration of 450 mg/kg. The element was first isolated in an impure form in 1808 and named after “Strontian,” a Scottish town where it was found at high concentrations in calcareous rocks consisting of natural apatites in which strontium may occur at concentrations as high as 73 g/kg. In ocean water, strontium is the most abundant trace element, reaching values of up to 8 mg… Expand

Aluminium and strontium in calcium supplements and antacids: a concern to haemodialysis patients?
TLDR
It is recommended that the choice of calcium supplement prescribed to individuals undergoing haemodialysis be closely regulated and noted as a possible factor in the prevalence of bone disorders reported in these patients. Expand
Strontium in the Environment and Possible Human Health Effects
Strontium is a ubiquitous element in the environment. Stable and radioactive strontium compounds are used in many industrial processes and find applications in research and medical fields. Expand
Annex D: absorption and retention of radionuclides
TLDR
The general observation is that incorporation into food may lead to greater absorption than ingestion of the inorganic form of an element, and neither the chemical transformations in the alimentary tract nor the exact site of absorption have been defined. Expand
Bioremediation of Biophilic Radionuclides by Algae
High amounts of radionuclides were released into the environment by the nuclear power plant accident of 2011 in Japan. Among the radioactive material, cesium, iodine, and strontium were especiallyExpand
Structural and physico-chemical analysis of calcium/strontium substituted, near-invert phosphate based glasses for biomedical applications.
TLDR
It is shown that the substitution of strontium for calcium in bioactive phosphate glasses can be used to control the dissolution rate of the glass, and hence the rate at which therapeutic ions are delivered. Expand
Strontium incorporates at sites critical for bone mineralization in rats with renal failure
We previously demonstrated the development of a mineralization defect during strontium administration and its reversibility after withdrawal in rats with chronic renal failure. Recently, strontiumExpand
The status of strontium in biological apatites: an XANES/EXAFS investigation.
TLDR
Based on this study, it seems that for supplementation of Sr at low concentration, Sr(2+) cations will be localized into the apatite network. Expand
Cesium and strontium tolerant Arthrobacter sp. strain KMSZP6 isolated from a pristine uranium ore deposit
TLDR
The present report highlights the superior tolerance and binding capacity of the KMSZP6 strain for cesium and strontium over other earlier reported strains and reveals its potential for bioremediation of nuclear waste. Expand
Strontium Is Incorporated in Different Levels into Bones and Teeth of Rats Treated with Strontium Ranelate
TLDR
The strontium content was markedly increased in animals treated withstrontium ranelate, with different incorporation levels found among specific bones, regions within the same bone and teeth. Expand
Development of magnesium-based biodegradable metals with dietary trace element germanium as orthopaedic implant applications.
TLDR
Feasibility of Mg-Ge alloys to be utilized as orthopedic implant applications was systematically investigated, mainly focusing on the microstructure, mechanical property, corrosion behavior and biocompatibility, and it was showed that M g-3Ge alloy exhibited superior corrosion resistance to current M germanium-based biodegradable metals.

Trace metals in man: strontium and barium.
TLDR
Although the actual amounts of exposures of the population were small, the greatest health hazard to the population at large came from atmospheric testing of atomic bombs, O”Sr being a fission product. Expand
Strontium content of mammalian bone, diet and excreta.
Abstract In only a few studies have common strontium dietary levels been correlated with the bone content. Such studies have been made for material of human origin and laboratory rabbits in the St.Expand
Common strontium concentration of mineralized tissues from marine and sweet water animals.
TLDR
The ration of Sr : Ca in ossified tissues to Sr: Ca in water is essentially constant for marine- and sweet-water animals within a class and is greatest for pelecypods and fishes and is least for Crustacea. Expand
Effects of low doses of strontium on bone quality and quantity in rats.
TLDR
This study shows that Sr at the larger dose induces bone hypomineralization as well as an increase in bone mass in rats fed a relatively low calcium diet. Expand
Absorption and Retention of Ingested Strontium and Calcium in Beagles as a Function of Age
TLDR
The differential movement of strontium and calcium across physiological barriers is expressed by the term ‘Strontium–Calcium Observed Ratio’ (OR) and is given by the ORbone-diet values for laboratory and domestic animals under usual dietary conditions range from 0.2 to 0.5 with most of the values at about 0.25 (refs. 1 and 2). Expand
Rickets and soil strontium.
TLDR
The results suggest that in villages where nutrition is mainly based on grain cereals the presence of strontium in the soil will increase the prevalence of rickets significantly, and a greater proportion of the foods given to children in these villages should be derived from animal origin. Expand
Strontium alters the complexed acidic phospholipid content of mineralizing tissues.
TLDR
Treatment of mineralizing tissues with strontium both in vitro and in vivo resulted in defective mineralization and an accumulation of CPLX, which appears to perturb mineralization, in part, by a direct effect on the cells of mineralized tissues. Expand
Strontium and its relation to calcium metabolism.
Strontium and Ca metabolism were compared in man without, at the same time, assuming any metabolic relationship between these elements. A set of parameters was developed that have the same formalExpand

The analysis of the interaction of strontium (Sr) with bone mineral is of interest because a new agent containing Sr (S 12911) has shown positive effects on bone mass in various animal models ofExpand
Effects of strontium ions on growth and dissolution of hydroxyapatite and on bone mineral detection.
TLDR
It is concluded that existing BMC scanners register artificially high values of BMC if the bone contains significant amounts of Sr2+ or other metal ions with atomic number larger than calcium. Expand
