In a previous ultrastructural study, the benefit of a single high dose of vitamin D-3 On fracture healing in a healthy animal model was demonstrated. This study examined the biomechanical consequences of applying a single high dose of vitamin D-3 in a healthy rabbit model subsequent to femoral fracture. The fracture load, the values of energy absorbed until fracture and the flexural rigidity values of the vitamin D group were significantly higher than the corresponding ones of the control group in the case of fracture. On the other hand, for intact bones, those values did not differ significantly between the two groups. It was concluded that single high-dose vitamin D-3 application had positive effects on fracture healing in a healthy animal model, as far as the parameters related to mechanical strength are concerned.

Objective: Vitamin D deficiency is known as an important risk factor in pathogenesis of atherosclerosis, which contributes to stroke development. Genetic variations including single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in enzymes involved in vitamin D metabolism can affect susceptibility to the development of stroke. Therefore, the objective of this study was to investigate the association between polymorphisms of vitamin D metabolizing enzymes (rs927650 SNP in CYP24A1, and rs10741657 SNP in CYP2R1 genes,) and i...

In this study, therapeutic effects of Vitamin K2, Raloxifene and their co-administration on bone, uterus, blood and weight profiles were investigated with an ovariectomized rat model. Forty Wistar rats were divided into five groups (n = 8): Raloxifene (R), Vitamin K2 (K), Raloxifene + Vitamin K2 (R + K), ovariectomized controls (OVX) and Sham-operated controls (Sham). Treatment began 3 months after ovariectomy. Vitamin K2 and Raloxifene were administered 30 and 1.5 mg/kg/day separately and in combination fi...

Wound healing involves a number of processes, including an acute inflammatory response to production of Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) and depression in antioxidant status. The aim of the study is to examine the therapeutic effects of Caffeic Acid Phenethyl Ester (CAPE), an antioxidant agent, on cutaneous wound healing in a rat model. There was a significant decrease in serum, wound and liver tissue TSA and serum LBSA levels in the CAPE group than in the control group. Also there was a significant decrease i...
Characterization and Evaluation of Triamcinolone, Raloxifene, and Their Dual-Loaded Microspheres as Prospective Local Treatment System in Rheumatic Rat Joints

In this study, injectable microspheres were developed for the local treatment of joint degeneration in rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Microspheres loaded with triamcinolone (TA), a corticosteroid drug, and/or raloxifene (Ral), a cartilage regenerative drug, were prepared with a biodegradable and biocompatible polymer, polycaprolactone (PCL). Microspheres were optimized for particle size, structural properties, drug release, and loading properties. In vitro release of Ral was very slow because of the low solubil...
