Abstract
Findings regarding alcohol consumption and bone mineral density (BMD) in elderly women have been inconsistent. The objective of the present study was to explore the association of alcohol intake with BMD in elderly women.
This cohort study included women from the population-based Kuopio Osteoporosis Risk Factor and Prevention - Fracture Prevention Study (OSTPRE-FPS). Alcohol intake and potential confounders were assessed at baseline and after 3 years of follow-up using a lifestyle questionnaire. In addition, an FFQ was distributed in the third year to measure dietary intake, including alcohol. Women underwent BMD measurements at the femoral neck and lumbar spine at baseline and after 3 years of follow-up.
Kuopio Province, Finland.
Three hundred elderly women (mean age 67·8 years) who provided both BMD measurements and FFQ data.
Alcohol consumption estimated from the FFQ and lifestyle questionnaire was significantly associated with BMD at both measurement sites after adjustment for potential confounders, including lifestyle and dietary factors (P 3 alcoholic drinks/week had significantly higher BMD than abstainers, 12·0 % at the femoral neck and 9·2 % at the lumbar spine. Results based on the lifestyle questionnaire showed higher BMD values for all alcohol-consuming women at the femoral neck and for women drinking 1-3 alcoholic beverages/week at the lumbar spine, compared with non-users.
The results from OSTPRE-FPS suggest that low to moderate alcohol intake may exert protective effects on bone health in elderly women.

Abstract
An epidemiological survey of ankylosing spondylitis (AS) was performed in Tromsø, Northern Norway. Altogether 27 cases of AS were found, and the symptoms and signs of these subjects were compared to those of persons with back pain but not suffering from AS (NON-AS). The symptoms which differentiated best between AS and NON-AS were: back pain which awakened the subject at night and made him leave the bed, back pain not relieved by lying down but improved by exercise, back pain of 3 months duration or more and morning stiffness lasting 0.5 hours or more. Reduced lateral mobility of the lumbar spine, a total spinal extension of 20 degrees or less and a total spinal flexion of 40 degrees or less were signs of acceptable value for the diagnosis of AS. Clinical criteria for the diagnosis of AS, to be used both in the clinical management of patients with back complaints and in population surveys of AS are suggested.

Abstract
The purpose of this investigation was to identify risk factors in relation to non-union following lumbar intercorporal spondylodesis and to correlate this result with the functional outcome as assessed by the Dallas Pain Questionnaire (DPQ). This comprises questions concerning daily activities, work-leisure activities, anxiety-depression and social interest, measured on visual analog scales. During the period 1979-87 a total of 132 patients were operated with spondylodesis, diagnosed as suffering from spondylolisthesis or disc degeneration. Minimal follow-up was one year. Radiological graft incorporation was complete in 52% of the cases, partial in 24% and lacking in 24%. The rate of functional outcome follow-up was 72%. Seventy percent claimed an improvement in three out of four categories. Thirty percent claimed no improvement or worsened condition. The DPQ showed signs of poor prognosis for age groups above 45 (p

Abstract
Recent reports have stated that low back pain (LBP) among children is a common problem comparable with that in adults. This 25-year prospective cohort study confirms that 11% of the cohort have had a history of LBP in adolescence with an 84% lifetime prevalence of LBP in these subjects as adults compared with 70% in the rest of the cohort. LBP was associated with increased morbidity and decreased working capacity. Thirteen percent of the cohort had radiological abnormalities, mainly Scheuermann changes, in the thoracic and lumbar spine as adolescents, with no positive correlation to LBP in this period. Unlike other reports our results did not show any association between X-ray changes in the lower spine in adolescents and a higher prevalence of LBP in adults. Stepwise logistic regression analyses showed that LBP in the growth period and familial occurrence of back disease are important risk factors for LBP later in life, with an observed probability of 88% if both factors are present. Preventive measures in the school period seem to be of great importance.

Abstract
To obtain information on and to study an association between the erosive and destructive changes in the hand and foot joints, bone mineral density (BMD) in different parts of the skeleton and the X-ray alterations in the thoracic and lumbar vertebrae of patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA).
The investigation enrolled 66 women with a valid RA diagnosis, whose mean age was 51.6 +/- 9.6 years and the disease duration was 13.2 +/- 9.1 years. All the patients underwent clinical, laboratory, and X-ray studies assessing the progression of joint changes by the Sharp/van der Heijde method and estimating the vertebral body deformity index by the Genant technique, and BMD in 3 skeletal regions by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry employing a Holovic Discovery A device.
With X-ray higher-stage RA and higher Sharp total scores, regardless of age, there was a decrease in BMD in all skeletal areas and an increase in the number of patients with deformities of vertebrae and osteoporosis (OP) in at least one of the analyzed skeletal part. Thus, OP was found in 29% of the patients with Stages I and II RA and in 65% of those with Stages IV; deformities of vertebrae were in 12 and 22%, respectively. Comparative analysis of BMD and erosive and destructive changes in the patient groups different in age at onset of the disease has established that its young onset (from 16 to 30 years) and long duration have a negative effect on bone status. Femoral neck BMD in these patients is significantly lower than that in patients who were ill at older age (31-50 or over 50 years) (0.661 +/- 0.080, 0.739 +/- 0.111, and 0.713 +/- 0.120 g/cm2, respectively) and the Sharp total score was higher (181.1 +/- 91.3, 100.5 +/- 71.5 and 103.9 +/- 74.5, respectively). The patients' mean age in these groups at the study inclusion was 46.7 +/- 12.1, 51.9 +/- 6.7, and 60.3 +/- 3.3 years, respectively.
With the longer disease duration, regardless of the age of patients with RA, there are increases in both Sharp total scores, X-ray RA stage, and the number of patients with OP, deformities of thoracic and lumbar vertebrae (however, there is no evidence of significant differences), BMD decrease in all skeletal parts.

Abstract
National surveys of more than 600 facilities that performed chest, lumbosacral spine, and abdominal examinations were conducted as a part of the Nationwide Evaluation of X-Ray Trends program. Radiation exposures were measured with use of a set of standard phantoms developed by the Center for Devices and Radiological Health of the Food and Drug Administration, U.S. Public Health Service. X-ray equipment parameters, film processing data, and data regarding techniques used were collected. There were no differences in overall posteroanterior chest exposures between hospitals and private practices. Seventy-six percent of hospitals used grids, compared with 33% of private practices. In general, hospitals favored a high tube voltage technique, and private facilities favored a low tube voltage technique. Forty-one percent of private practices and 17% of hospitals underprocessed their film. Underprocessing in hospitals increased from 17% in 1984 to 33% in 1987. Average exposure values for these examinations may be useful as guidelines in meeting some of the new requirements of the Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations.

Abstract
To report bone mineral density (BMD) in young, reportedly healthy Canadian women and to determine whether lifestyle factors that have been associated with bone health in older women are also associated with BMD in young women.
We recruited a convenience sample of 52 female undergraduate students in the Applied Human Nutrition program at the University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. BMD was measured at the femoral neck, lumbar spine (L1 to L4), and whole body using a Discovery Wi (Hologic Inc.) dual-energy x-ray absorptiometer. Subjects completed a questionnaire to collect demographics, medical history, physical activity levels, and dietary habits; in addition, a subset of subjects (n = 31) completed a food frequency questionnaire to collect data on calcium and vitamin D intake. BMD data were examined using T- and Z-score classifications established by the World Health Organization (WHO); multiple regression analysis was used to predict BMD with biological and lifestyle variables.
Mean BMD measured at the femoral neck, lumbar spine, and whole body was 0.863 ± 0.11, 1.019 ± 0.09, and 1.085 ± 0.07 g/cm(2), respectively. Body mass and body mass index were significantly positively correlated with BMD at all 3 sites. Television watching, lactose intolerance, number of alcoholic drinks consumed per week, and age were used to develop a linear regression model to predict whole-body BMD (r(2) = 0.727, p

Abstract
The aim of the present study was to investigate bone status and biological mechanisms involved in the negative impact of anorexia nervosa (AN) on osteogenesis.
A total of 30 AN patients from Aalborg University Hospital who underwent bone scans were included in a cross-sectional study. Biochemical data, bone scans (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA)) as well as general health and medical information had been collected during the 2009-2011 period and stored via local and national clinical databases in Denmark, and from these databases we identified all patients with an AN diagnosis who underwent bone scans.
AN patients had a mean Z-score of -1.5 to -1.6 in lumbar spine and total hip, respectively. The hip Z-score decreased with duration of disease, and a positive correlation was seen between serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D level and spine Z-score but not hip Z-score. Bone mineral density did not seem to change with time since diagnosis. Additionally, a negative correlation between serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D levels and serum total alkaline phosphatase levels was found. A serum 25-hydroxy-vitamin D level below 50 nmol/l was associated with increased alkaline phosphatase levels.
Rather than clinical measures including BMI and biochemical measures disease duration was the main predictor of bone status. This implies that long-term disease should be a main factor in selecting patients for referral to DXA. Moreover, results from this study indicate normal osteoblastic response to malnutrition.

The present study was not registered due to its register-based design. However, the study was approved by the Danish Data Protection Agency.

Abstract
to determine the frequency of development of osteopenia/ostoporosis (OP) vitamin D deficiency, some population risk factors, and the effects of alpha-calcidol and calcitriol on bone mineral density (BMD) in patients with gluten-sensitivity celiac disease (GSCD).
Densitometry of the lumbar vertebra and femoral neck (FN) was carried out in 47 patients with GSCD. Their sera were tested for 25OHD3, 1,25(OH)2D3, total alkaline phosphatase, calcium, phosphorus, parathyroid hormone (PTH), type 1 collagen type C-telopeptides (CrossLaps) and tumor necrosis factor-a (TNF-alpha), as well as urinary creatinine and calcium.
The T score below -1 was found in 37 (78.7%) of the patients. BMD reduced to the level of osteopenia in 51.1% of the patients; OP was detected in 27.7%. Lower BMD was noted in 19 (95%) of the 20 menopausal women and in 15 (68.2%) of the 22 females with preserved menstrual function (p = 0.047). The mean value of 250 HD3 was 47.8 +/- 5.0 in patients with OP patients and 85.6 +/- 7.1 ng/l in those with normal BMD (p

Abstract
A three-month-old female Siberian tiger cub with hindlimb ataxia was referred to the veterinary teaching hospital of Konkuk University. The patient was fed only beef without supplementation of calcium and vitamins after weaning. The tiger was presented with ataxia and back pain on digital palpation. In addition, abnormal gait, reluctance to move, and depressed withdrawal reflex were noted at the neurological examination. The overall osteodystrophic change of the lumbosacral vertebrae was observed on the lateral and ventrodorsal view of radiographic examination. And also PTH level was increased in hormonal assay when compared to that of cat reference range. Based on the results of examinations, nutritional secondary hyperparathyroidism was diagnosed. Clinical signs of this patient were improved after administration of vitamin D and calcium. This case demonstrates that nutritional hyperparathyroidism could be occurred in wild animals raised on a meat diet containing imbalanced calcium and phosphate.
