Beneficial Effects of Total Phenylethanoid Glycoside Fraction Isolated from Cistanche deserticola on Bone Microstructure in Ovariectomized Rats

Figure 3

Micro-CT scan images of microarchitecture of the right femur of CDP-treated rats; the photographs shown were representative of 4 different rats in each group: (A) OVX group; (B) SHAM group; (C) EV group; (D) CDPH group; (E) CDPM group; (F) CDPL group. The measured parameters include bone mineral content (BMC), tissue mineral content (TMC), tissue mineral density (TMD), trabecular separation (Tb.Sp), trabecular number (Tb.N), and trabecular thickness (Tb.Th). The OVX rats expressed notable reduction of the microarchitecture area and trabecular number. CDP-treated rats and EV-treated rats partly reversed the abovementioned findings at the same degree after 12 weeks of treatment. All values were presented as the . , , and versus the OVX group; ### versus the SHAM group.
