Data on where bone adaptation takes place in ovariectomised and drug treated rats

We were able to follow the remodelling process in the bones of the rats at the level of single trabeculae. We could see resorption of bone at certain locations, while at the same time bone was formed at other locations, sometimes within the distance of just one or two trabeculae. We could see bone remodelling leading to the formation of complete new trabecular structures - this has been impossible to show until now.
