Bone Metabolism

Maintaining strong and healthy bones is essential for our wellbeing. Bone provides structural support and protection for our vital organs. Bone density and bone strength are key components of bone health and the most common metabolic bone disease is osteoporosis, a condition of weak and fragile bones.

Oxford Biosystems has been a supplier of products for the investigation of bone and cartilage metabolism for many years. Our products are developed and manufactured by internationally recognised manufacturers and supported by their technical expertise gained through collaboration with scientists around the world.

Bones are continuously undergoing a dynamic process of resorption and absorption known as bone metabolism which is essential for the maintenance of healthy bone mass and micro-architecture. This remodelling process is tightly regulated, involving various hormones and factors.

The bone cycle consists of different phases and markers of bone metabolism can be categorized as markers of bone formation, markers of bone resorption and markers of the regulation of bone metabolism.
