Melatonin Supplements Could Prevent Osteoporosis

In recent years, melatonin supplements have exploded on the market as a tool to help people get to sleep—the Nutrition Business Journal estimated that in 2012 (the most recent year for which data are available) sales reached $260 million; in 2007, that number was just $90 million. Now scientists say the immensely popular pills could help prevent or even reverse osteoporosis.

Melatonin makes old bones stronger

Wed, 2014-05-28 09:25

Research on elderly rats suggests possible avenue for prevention of osteoporosis

Faleh Tamimi, is the leader of a research team that has just discovered that melatonin supplements make bones stronger in elderly rats and therefore, potentially, in elderly humans too. “Old rats are tedious to work with because they get sick a lot and that means they also cost a lot more. But if you’re interested in diseases like osteoporosis, they’re an essential part of the process.”

Innovation in 3D printing and spinal bone grafts at McGill

Mon, 2013-09-30 10:50

A team led by McGill University’s Dr Michael H Weber, and Professor Jake Barralet, are developing a new technology with a 3D printer which seeks to create replicas of bone for spinal grafts. The concept creates a bone-like replacement material in the exact shape of bone or bone segment which is to be removed. Professor Barralet holds the Canada Research Chair in osteoinductive biomaterials.
