UNLABELLED Five one-year-old immature swine were subjected to twelve months of exercise training. Four matched swine with no training served as controls. After they were killed, four-millimeter-wide strips of bone taken from the anterior, medial, posterior, and lateral quadrants of the central femoral diaphysis were subjected to four-point bending tests to failure. It was found that although exercise did not change the mechanical properties of the cortical bone, it resulted in significant… CONTINUE READING
