Example sentences for: osteopenia

How can you use “osteopenia” in a sentence? Here are some example sentences to help you improve your vocabulary:

  • Fragility may be increased in the adrenalectomy group as evidenced by broken mineralized bone at the growth plate, presumably due to osteopenia combined with handling post mortem.

  • Previously, studies of phenotypes in this laboratory have shown that SPARC-null mice develop osteopenia around 2.5 months of age [ 19 ] in bones where SPARC is normally the most abundant non-collagenous glycoprotein [ 3 ] . The second phenotype thus far uncovered is in the lens where SPARC is normally produced by lens epithelial cells [ 20 21 ] and is a component of the lens capsule [ 20 22 ] . SPARC-null mice show progressive cataract formation beginning approximately 1.5 months after birth [ 14 21 ] . Electron microscopy of the SPARC-null lens revealed abnormality at the lens cell-ECM (capsule) interface with an intrusion of cellular processes into the basement membrane of the lens capsule, whereas wild-type lens exhibited a precise border at the cell-matrix interface [ 23 ] . In the present study, we show for the first time that SPARC plays a role in wound repair in vivo and in vitro.
