Figure 3: Quantitative analysis of BMD in DSW-treated and control mice. Bone density scores (BMD) of spine, knee (right/left), and femurs (right/left) were measured by Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry after 4 months treatment (a). DSW-induced bone formation and decreased bone loss were observed in the DSW-treated OVX-SAMP8 mice (b). Values (means + SD) indicate relative BMD levels normalized to month 0 BMD (before operation = 100%; dashed line), respectively; * determined by -tests; of each group.
