The effects of inflammation-mediated osteoporosis (IMO) on the skeletal Ca/P ratio and on the structure of rabbit bone and skin collagen.

Abstract

The relationships between the skeletal Ca/P ratio (used as an index of bone quality) and structural changes in the bone and skin was studied in inflammatory mediated osteoporosis (IMO). The bone Ca/P ratio in IMO rabbits was significantly lower than in controls. Also, severe alterations were detected at the ultrastructural level in bone and skin collagen fibrils from IMO rabbits.
