A histochemical stain for bone aluminum allowed us to determine the prevalence and staining characteristics of aluminum in renal osteodystrophy. The staining method correlated well with the results of atomic-absorption studies in 96 samples (r = 0.81; P less than 0.001). We examined 315 bone-biopsy samples. No aluminum was seen in controls or patients with… CONTINUE READING
