Bone Remodeling, PBL, and POD by CCLCM Student .. Medical Student Posted Thu 23 Oct 2008 2:04pm Our seminar this morning was about bone remodeling. The first half was a general overview on the subject, and then the second half was a journal club. The articles for today were decent, and I think it's an interesting subject even if there is a little too much molecular bio for my taste. The seminar speaker was different than the one we had the ... Read on »
Bone Remodeling by Northcoast Footcare Facebook Posted Wed 04 Nov 2009 10:06pm Bone does not exist in a static state. Bone is constantly remodeling itself which means that it is breaking down and building back up again. Osteoclasts are the cells which break down bone (called bone resorption), while osteoblasts build bone back up (called ossification). This process allows for bone to restructure and reshape itself and hel ... Read on »

Understanding Bone Strength by OCnaturaldoc Health Maven Posted Sun 08 Aug 2010 10:50am Bone is a mineralized living tissue which is constantly being broken down and rebuilt or remodeled. In fact, the body grows the equivalent of an entirely new skeleton every 7 years. There are two main types of cells that are crucial to bone remodeling – osteoblasts, and osteoclasts. The job of osteoblasts is to build new bone, and the job of os ... Read on »
Paget’s Disease of the Bone (In Attempts to Better Understand the Pathology for the NPLEX Basic Science Boards!!) by Krystal Plonski Posted Fri 01 Jul 2011 12:00am Paget’s disease of the bone is also known as osteitis deformans (which in Latin would translate to deformity of the bones). The general mechanism of Paget’s disease involves the breakdown of bone (demineralization), which makes it brittle and weak, but then it is replacemed with abnormal and weak bone. Osteoclasts are the cells respo ... Read on »
bones and metabolism by Martin Eastwood Posted Wed 25 Aug 2010 2:12am Most scientists believe the function of the bone is limited to support and mineral exchange. A stimulating article in Nature discusses the possibility that bone remodelling be linked to metabolism. This makes real sense as metabolism is interconnected and a stand alone system cannot be efficient. The article discusses the work generated by Kar ... Read on »
Better high or low bone turnover disease? by Matt S. Posted Wed 19 Jan 2011 9:07am In a recent survey of 544 bone biopsy samples from patients with CKD stage 5 on dialysis, bone turnover was low in 52%, normal in 21% and high in 27% of biopsies. Defective mineralization was found in only 3%. Since the introduction of vitamin D analogs, the dominant bone disease phenotype in dialysis patients has remarkably changed. Now, adyn ... Read on »
Bone Up: Your Top 10 List for Maximizing Skeletal Health by Michelle T Patient Expert Posted Tue 26 Aug 2008 11:39am 1 Comment Food Insight Most people understand that nutrition affects bone health. In fact, many are aware that calcium is critical for building healthy bones and preventing osteoporosis later in life. What may be less apparent is that in addition to calcium, a constellation of nutritional and lifestyle factors influence the h ... Read on »
A new drug for bone loss in renal patients? by Matt S. Posted Mon 01 Nov 2010 11:10am At a recent meeting on bone biology, several talks were devoted to a new class of drugs targeting osteoporosis. Since these drugs are antibodies and thus not cleared by the kidney, I paid close attention, as they have the potential to be useful in patients with renal failure, where we generally shun bisphosphonates. But first, lets talk abo ... Read on »
Building Up and Breaking Down: Your Bones Day by Day by Health&Fitness GuideforDummies Posted Fri 24 Apr 2009 7:22am Bone is constantly reshaping itself in a complex process of building and remodeling. You don't notice this reshaping because it happens on a microscopic level. The major players involved in bone building and remodeling are The cells: Osteoblasts, osteoclasts, and osteocytes The hormones: The directors of cellular function The ess ... Read on »
