    Bone Biology Laboratory, Samuel Lunenfeld Research Institute, Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto, ON, M5G 1X5, Canada
    J Biomech Eng 132:031002. 2010
    ..As techniques develop and improve, this new information may lead to important future studies concerning improved detection, prediction, and modeling of mechanical damage at much finer levels of tissue hierarchy than currently possible...

    Diabetes 60:3271-8. 2011
    ..These were not osteoporotic vertebral fractures but, rather, occurred in the limbs. The purpose of this study was to investigate how RSG treatment alters bone quality, which leads to fracture risk, using the Zucker fatty rat as a model...
