Pagination or Media Count:
Bone remodelling parameters have been obtained from the ribs of 50 rhesus monkeys, post-immobilization. In addition, data obtained from reconditioning phase biopsies completed thus far is included. Parameters describe remodelling on the cortical-endosteal, periosteal and haversian surfaces. Post-immobilization parameters for the three surfaces described are compared to their pre-immobilization values. Significant changes in levels of remodelling activity are indicated at the cortical-endosteal and periosteal surfaces, while haversian values pre-post show negligible changes. Comparison of values and overall evaluation of the reconditioning phase data will await further data completion respective to the third year of study currently in progress.
