Objective: Oosteoporoti fractures are a growing problem especially in aged societies of industrialized countries. Therefore, a clinical demand for synthetic bone graft substitutes is increasing. Despite the general success CPC showed clinically, development of CPC-based material by adding stronsium could improve its suitability to treat osteoporotic fractures.Methods: Sprague–Dawley rates model of induced osteoporosis via multi-deficiencies diet com...

Due to its huge socio-economic impact a better understating of osteoporotic fracture healing is crucial.Thirty-one female merino land sheep were randomly divided into four groups. (i) Untreated control-group (C, n=8); (ii) bilateral ovariectomy (OVX, n=7); (iii) OVX and calcium-deficient diet (OVXD, n=8); and (iv) OVXD and additional biweekly corticosteroid injections (OVXDS, n=8). Drill-hole defects (7.5 mm in diamete...
