Information about several papers discussed at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) 35th annual meeting held in Baltimore, Maryland on October 4-7, 2013 is presented. Topics include the role of osteocytes in bone remodeling and as regulators of osteoclastic bone resorption, the key players in the anabolic and catabolic actions of parathyroid hormone (PTH), and the cellular action of Wnt16, an osteoblast-derived inhibitor of osteoclastogenesis.

    Osteocytes, former osteoblasts buried within bone, are thought to orchestrate skeletal adaptation to mechanical stimuli. However, it remains unknown whether hormones control skeletal homeostasis through actions on osteocytes. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) stimulates bone remodeling and may cause...

    Inappropriate regulation of the bone resorption and bone formation processes that occur as a normal part of bone remodeling can lead to net bone loss, as found in osteoporosis. Parathyroid hormone (PTH) and calcitonin (CT) are two peptide hormones that play important roles in calcium homeostasis...

    Osteolysis is a bone disorder associated with progressive destruction of bone tissues. However, the effects of lanthanum chloride (LaCl) on osteolysis remain unknown. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the effects of LaCl on osteolysis in vivo. In a mouse calvarial model, C57BL/6J...

    The article investigates the role of osteocytes on the structure of bone and how it tolerates loads. The article emphasizes the role of osteocytes in modelling and remodelling of bones depending upon strength requirements. The article further investigates the reasons for the death of ostecytes...

    Mechanosensitive osteocytes are essential for bone remodeling. Nitric oxide, an important regulator of bone remodeling, is produced by osteocytes through the activity of constitutive endothelial nitric oxide synthase (eNOS) or inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). We hypothesized that these...

    Carbonate apatite (CO3Ap), the form of apatite found in bone, has recently attracted attention. The purpose of the present study was to histologically evaluate the tissue/cellular response toward the low-crystalline CO3Ap fabricated using a dissolution-precipitation reaction with set gypsum as a...

    The article reports on the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research's workshop "Targeted Bone Remodeling for the Treatment of Osteoporosis" which took place in December 2007. Topics include age-related bone loss in men and women, the theoretical construct of systemic/homeostatic coupling...

    Osteoporosis with bone loss is widely recognized as a major health problem. Bone homeostasis is maintained by balancing bone formation and bone resorption. The imbalance caused by increased bone resorption over bone formation can lead to various bone-related diseases such as osteoporosis and...
