It is known that body weight is positively correlated with increased bone mineral density and decreased fracture risk. Adiponectin is expressed in bone forming cells, and administration of adiponectin has been demonstrated to stimulated osteoblast proliferation. The overall role of adiponectin in bone metabolism remains unrevealed as both stimulated and inhibiting effects on osteoclastogenesis have been reported. We aimed at describing the relationship between adiponectin and ...

Adiponectin may play a role in both bone and periodontal remodeling. In this study, the effect of repetitive local administration of human recombinant adiponectin on experimental tooth movement was examined.The first molar of 24 male Wistar rats was moved mesially by a closed coil spring ligated to the molar and anchored to the incisors in front for 14 days, with adiponectin injections every 3rd day. Amount of tooth movement was examined by feeler gauge ...
