Effects of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen on Osteoporosis Induced by Hindlimb Unloading in Rats

Title: Effects of Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen on Osteoporosis Induced by Hindlimb Unloading in Rats

Publisher: Journal of Bone and Mineral Metabolism (Print: 2020/9) (Online: 04/29/2020)

Pressure: 1.3 ATA

Oxygen Concentration: 40%

Duration: unknown

Sessions: 10

Results: These results suggested that the loss of the cortical and trabecular bone is inhibited by mild hyperbaric oxygen, because of an inhibition of osteoclasts and enhancement of bone formation with decreased Sost expression.

Conclusions: We conclude that exposure to mild hyperbaric oxygen partially protects from the osteoporosis induced by hindlimb unloading.
