Figure 4: Effects of DSW on bone structure of OVX-SAMP8 mice. Comparative analyses of bone structure between control and DSW-treated OVX-SAMP8 mice. Micro-CT imaging observed that bone structure (trabecular/cortical bone, 2D), trabecular bone volume (3D), and trabecular bone mass were increased in the DSW-treated OVX-SAMP8 mice after 4 months treatment. H&E staining represented a higher ratio of bone mass in DSW-treated mice (a). The volume of trabecular bone (bone volume/total bone volume (BV/TV)), and the numbers of trabecular bone (Tb.N) were calculated (right panel), and bars represented the average from six animals (b); -test, * versus CTRL group.
