Analytical study of osteoporosis of maxilla in ovariectomized rats

Lu, Shifeier (2015) Analytical study of osteoporosis of maxilla in ovariectomized rats. Masters by Research thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


The project applied analytical facilities to characterize the composition and mechanical properties of osteoporosis in maxillary bone using an ovariectomized rat model. It was found that osteoporotic jaw bone contained different amount of trace elements in comparison with the normal bone, which plays a significant role in bone quality. The knowledge generated from the study will assist the treatment of jaw bone fracture and dental implant placement.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
