Low fracture (FX) incidence has been demonstrated in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis (PMO) treated with DMAb for up to 10 years in the FREEDOM extension [Bone ASBMR 2015]. Bone biopsy-based assessment of DMAb’s effects at the tissue level has demonstrated a low remodelling rate consistent with DMAb’s mechanism of action (Reid JBMR 2010; Brown JBMR 2014). From FREEDOM, we report the effects of DMAb on bone matrix mineralization in women who un...

Intrinsic quality, micro and nano structure of bone after 1 month of spaceflight and during 1 week of recovery had never been investigated. The aim was to explore these properties in appendicular and axial skeleton of mature mice.Ten C57/Bl6 male mice flew on the 30-day space Russian BION-M1 high-orbit satellite mission (Biomedical Ethics Commission of IBMP, n°319). Five were euthanized 12 h after landing, the others 8 days later. A ground control g...
