A longitudinal Study of the effect of sodium and calcium intakes on regional bone densityof postmenopausal women

Amanda Devine, R Arthur Criddle, Ian M Dick, Deborah A Kerr, and Richard L Prince Abstract The influence of urinary sodium excretion and dietary calcium intake was examined in a 2-y longitudinal study of bone density in 124 women postmenopausal for > 10 y. Analysis of bone density changes showed that urinary sodium excretion was […]

Microbiome in the Gut-Skin Axis in Atopic Dermatitis

So-Yeon Lee, Eun Lee, Yoon Mee Park, Soo-Jong Hong Abstract The microbiome is vital for immune system development and homeostasis. Changes in microbial composition and function, termed dysbiosis, in the skin and the gut have recently been linked to alterations in immune responses and to the development of skin diseases, such as atopic dermatitis (AD). […]

Elevated extracellular calcium ions promote proliferation and migration of mesenchymal stem cells via increasing osteopontin expression

Mi Nam Lee, Hee-Su Hwang, Sin-Hye Oh, Amir Roshanzadeh, Jung-Woo Kim, Ju Han Song, Eung-Sam Kim and Jeong-Tae Koh Abstract Supplementation of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) at sites of bone resorption is required for bone homeostasis because of the non-proliferation and short lifespan properties of the osteoblasts. Calcium ions (Ca 2+ ) are released from […]

High Serum Osteopontin Levels Are Associated with Low Bone Mineral Density in Postmenopausal Women

Eun-Hee Cho, Keun-Hyok Cho, Hyang Ah Lee, and Sang-Wook Kim Abstract Osteopontin (OPN) is an acidic, noncollagenous matrix protein produced by the bone and kidneys. It is reportedly involved in bone resorption and formation. We examined the association between serum OPN levels and bone mineral density in postmenopausal women. Premenopausal women (n = 32) and […]
