OBJECTIVE: To observe the changes in inflammatory factors in patients with osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture (OVCF). METHODS: 40 OVCF patients meeting inclusion criteria were collected, and randomly divided into rehabilitation therapy group (n=20) and traditional therapy group (n=20). 20 normal subjects were collected as control group. Venous blood was collected after admission, and the expression levels of IL-1 and IL-18 were detected via ELISA. Patients in rehabilitation therapy group received rehabilitation training post-operatively, while those in traditional therapy group received conventional therapy...

In the present study, we studied the effect of streptozotocin-induced Type 1 diabetes on contractile properties of soleus muscle in female and young male rats. We hypothesized that the gender affects the contractile function in diabetic rats. Thirty-two Sprague-Dawley rats, male and female, three months old were divided into four groups: Female Non-Diabetic (FND), Female Diabetic (FD), Male Non-Diabetic (MND) and Male Diabetic (MD). Diabetes was induced by a single dose of 60 mg/kg body weight of streptozotocin in citrate buffer pH 4...

OBJECTIVES: To assess combined hormonal contraceptives (CHC) use and adolescent women's peak areal bone mineral density (BMD) accrual. METHODS: We enrolled 527 randomly selected women across Canada (2004-6) divided by age into adolescents (16-19) and young adults (20-24) and by CHC use to ever (E-CHC)/never (N-CHC) users. At baseline and year 2 we measured height, weight, and BMD at lumbar spine (L1-4), femoral neck, and total hip sites. Interviewer-administered questionnaires addressed menarche age, cigarette and alcohol use, calcium/vitamin D intakes, physical activity and estrogen dose (≤30/>30 micrograms)...

OBJECTIVES: To evaluate the effect of high intensity training (HIT) on physical fitness, basal respiratory exchange ratio (bRER), insulin sensitivity and muscle histology in overweight/obese men compared to continuous aerobic training (CAT). MATERIAL AND METHODS: 16 male participants with overweight/obesity (age: 42-57 years, body mass index: 28-36 kg/m2) were randomized to HIT (n=8) or CAT (n=8) for 10 weeks, twice a week. HIT was composed of 10 minutes high intensity, 10 minutes continuous aerobic, 10 minutes high intensity exercises...

OBJECTIVE: We investigated the frequency of clinical manifestations of osteoarthritis in women with low BMD. METHODS: This prospective epidemiological study investigated the degree of osteoarthritic pain and functional disability in symptomatic joints of a randomly selected population of postmenopausal Greek women aged >45 years with osteoporosis or osteopenia. Degree of osteoarthritic impairment (none, mild, moderate or severe) was classified at the knee, hip, neck or hand using a site-specific internationally validated osteoarthritis questionnaire...

OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the benefits of regular recreational table tennis games for body composition, physical performance and muscle strength of older adult men. METHODS: We compared twenty older male regular table tennis players (RTTP) and twenty age- and weight-matched sedentary participants (SP). Body composition (LM, lean mass; FM, fat mass; BMD, bone mineral density), physical function, and muscle strength were analyzed with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry, short physical performance battery (SPPB) and a hand-held dynamometer, respectively...

OBJECTIVES: To explore throwing athletes as a prospective, within-subject controlled model for studying the response of the skeleton to exercise. METHODS: Male pre-pubertal throwing athletes (n=12; age=10.3±0.6 yrs) had distal humerus cortical volumetric bone mineral density (Ct.vBMD), cortical bone mineral content (Ct.BMC), total area (Tt.Ar), cortical area (Ct.Ar), medullary area (Me.Ar), cortical thickness (Ct.Th) and polar moment of inertia (IP) assessed within their throwing (exercised) and nonthrowing (control) arms by peripheral quantitative computed tomography at baseline and 12 months...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the study was to investigate the effect of 8-week individual-specific strength exercises on knee muscle strength balance. METHODS: Totally 42 male voluntary amateur soccer players participated in the study. The players were categorized into 3 groups with 14 members in each one; the control group (CG), maximal strength training group (STG) and individual-specific strength training group (ISTG). The players in both STG and ISTG performed strength exercises for lower extremity for 3 days per week for 8 weeks...

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to create and analyze a Pareto-optimal problem that would describe cooperation between mono- and bi-articulate lower limb muscles in sagittal plane. METHODS: Equations describing the problem were derived and analyzed, additional constrains were introduced and experimental verification based on gait video analysis was performed. RESULTS: Uncertainty of Pareto-optimal solution is shown for the muscular-skeletal system...

OBJECTIVES: Disuse is characterized by a rapid and profound bone resorption. Zoledronic acid (Zol) inhibits osteoclastic bone resorption. The aim of the study was to prevent disuse osteopenia with Zol and investigate gene expression markers of osteoclastic differentiation. METHODS: Disuse osteopenia was induced by injecting botulinum toxin (BTX) into the right hind limb of 16-week-old C57BL/6J female mice. Zol (100 µg/kg) was injected s.c. once at study start. The immobilized bones were investigated with DEXA, microCT, mechanical testing, dynamic bone histomorphometry, and RT-qPCR...

OBJECTIVES: The purpose of the present study was to characterize the dynamic alterations of bone composition parameters and mechanical properties to disuse and mechanical intervention. METHODS: A tail suspension hindlimb unloading model and an in vivo axial tibia loading model in rats were used. A moderate mechanical loading that was capable of engendering 800 µε tibia strain was applied to the right tibia of rats in both control and hindlimb unloading group across 28 days of the experimental period...

High impact exercise programmes can improve bone strength, but little is known about whether this type of training further benefits fracture risk by improving physical function in older people. OBJECTIVES: This study investigated the influence of high impact exercise on balance, muscle function and morphology in older men. METHODS: Fifty, healthy men (65-80 years) were assigned to a 6-month multidirectional hopping programme (TG) and twenty age and physical activity matched volunteers served as controls (CG)...

OBJECTIVES: To examine non-local muscle fatigue (NLMF) in both contralateral homologous and non-related heterogonous muscles for both sexes. METHODS: Ten men and nine women participated in this study. After the familiarization visit, subjects completed four separate randomly sequenced experimental visits, during which the fatiguing interventions (six sets of 30-second maximal isometric contractions) were performed on either their right elbow flexors or knee extensors...

The objective of this study was to investigate the effects of mechanical modulation parameters on structural proteins biocomposition and mechanical properties of the growth plate. Establishing these parameters is a crucial step in the development of fusionless treatment of scoliosis. In this study, ulna explants from 4-weeks-old (pubertal) swines were used. The biocomposition was characterized using biochemical content evaluation and immunohistochemistry. Mechanical properties were characterized by fitting the data of the stress relaxation curves using a fibril reinforced biphasic model...
