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.”

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.
