    MRC Wits Developmental Pathways for Health Research Unit, University of the Witwatersrand, Wits, Johannesburg 2050, South Africa
    Bone 55:476-86. 2013
    ..Since most cortical canals are part of an osteon, we examined osteons and their canals for age-related changes in numbers, size and shape in 87 iliac crest bone samples of subjects aged 0-25 years, using histomorphometry...
  3. ncbi request reprint Cortical bone histomorphometry of the iliac crest in normal black and white South African adults

    Calcif Tissue Int 79:373-82. 2006
    ..Greater Ec mineral apposition and bone formation rates, i.e., greater osteoblast efficiency at the cellular and tissue levels, suggest better Ec bone preservation that may contribute to lower fragility fracture rates in B...
