Summary

Monkey bones from different time periods of immobilization and reambulation of the monkeys were assessed histologically. The bone was also assessed biochemically for nonmineralized collagen in bone. Results indicate that more non-mineralized bone is present in monkeys that have been immobilized, and upon reambulation, these values tend to be normalized to control bone.
