  • Spongy Bone Research Paper

    The bones that make up the clavicle, sternum, and clavicle go through the growth process known as intramembranous osteogenesis. In this process, the osteoblasts form bone matrix and become osteocytes. The osteocytes connect with other osteocytes to form a network allowing for nutrients to be diffused. The bone cells transport materials along the line as needed so that each cell can receive the proper nutrients, and they continue this process until flat bone is formed. In long bones, which include the humerus and femur, a different growth process is used. The beginning formation of the bone appears as a simpler form of the future complete bone. Through continued growth, the bone allows blood vessels which provide bone stem cells to come inside. As the cartilage cells reduce, the bone cells fill in the the empty space with more bone. The outer compact bone portion does not have much empty space…

  • Research Paper On Osteoporosis

    Osteoporosis Cameron Buss CNA 9/10 April Overview of Osteoporosis The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) defines osteoporosis as a disease in which the density and quality of bone are reduced (iofbonehealth.org). No symptoms can be identified until a fracture happens. As we get older the minerals in our bones become less and less making them weaker and more brittle. When our bones become brittle they do not absorb as much stress and can cause them to break. As we age, our…

  • Osteoblasts In Bone Formation

    salts are deposit into it all through until after it is born to life. As a result, the process of gradual replacement of immature bone cells and calcium deposits is called Ossification. 2. What are the roles of Osteoclasts in bone formation? The roles of Osteoclasts in bone formation are as follows, the suffix –clast is from the Greek word meaning to break. Therefore, Osteoclasts are large cells that function to reabsorb, or digest, bony tissue. It does so by digesting bone tissue from the…

  • Bone Remodeling

    remodeling involves the bone resorption regarding to osteoclasts and bone formation relating to osteoblasts. Regular bone-related diseases including “bone-metastasized cancers”, Paget’s disease, multiple myeloma, and osteoporosis are caused by the disproportion between the resorption and formation processes. The increased deterioration of health and mortality rate results in concerns regarding to knowledge enhancement on bone remodeling process. It is discovered that osteoporosis (mostly…

  • Skeletal System Process

    Oppositional growth is the bone growing in width. Longitudinal growth is the bone growing in length. Growth occurs because of bone remodeling. Bone remodeling is a process that adds curves to the bones and gives the bones strength so they aren’t so skinny and fragile. The curves prevent the bones from breaking as easily. Bone remodeling begins with osteoblasts or reforming cells that lay down fresh bone tissue that tightly pack together and then the bone tissue settles into the matrix. Over…

  • Compare And Contrast Bone Growth And Remodeling

    reshape the bones from injuries like fractures. Osteoblasts secrete new bone tissue while osteoclasts break down the old bone tissues. The body signals the correct amount of growth through parathyroid and growth hormones as well as vitamin D, steroids, and calcitonin. 2. Compare and contrast bone growth and remodeling. • Bone growth is the increase in length in the long bones. Bone growth occurs during childhood and adolescents. This process uses osteoblasts and…

  • Endochondral Ossification Research Paper

    The model that bone will eventually replace is composed of hyaline cartilage, the most common cartilage, this process tends to be more difficult than intramembranous ossification since all hyaline cartilage most be decomposed as bone tissue is created. Everything begins at the primary ossification center, which is located in the center of diaphysis of the long bone. What set the stage for this process is blood vessels that infiltrate the periosteum, or the covering of the surface of hyaline…

  • A Study On Furosemide

    When at low doses, inhibits prothrombin to thrombin conversion and inactivates factor Xa. At high doses, it can inhibit fibrinogen to fibrin conversion and also inactivate multiple factors, including factors 9, 19, 11, and 12. Pharm effects: This leads to the pharmacological effects of increased bleeding time and interference of platelet aggregation, thus preventing blood clots from forming. Evidence: A study was done in China to determine how heparin affected osteoblasts. They treated human…

  • Osteoporosis Patient Case Report

    Osteoclasts and osteoblasts are responsible for breaking down bone and replacing resorbed bone respectively (Seriolo et al., 2013). Natural aging results in less bone formation from osteoblasts causing more bone resorption and therefore negatively impacting skeletal homeostasis (Seriolo et al., 2013). Hormones such as estrogen and parathyroid hormone are some of the most important modulators for bone formation and play a large role in optimal bone maintenance and development (International…

  • Ossification In Fetal Development Essay

    Osteoblasts are osteocytes that are immature. They produce bony tissue to replace cartilage during ossification. The formation of bone relies on the proper nutrients such as, calcium, phosphorus, as well as proper amounts of, vitamin D. Then osteoblastic activity makes an enzyme that forms calcium phosphate, to give the bone its hard quality. • How does vitamin D support bone formation? Bones require a proper amount of vitamin D to support bone formation. Vitamin D helps calcium to be absorbed…
