Effects of Strontium on Bone Tissue and Bone Cells

  • P. J. Marie


Beside hormones and growth factors, minerals and trace elements are known to affect bone formation and resorption through direct and indirect effects on bone cells. In addition, some trace elements, such as strontium, have been shown to induce pharmacological effects on cells when administered at levels higher than those required for normal cell physiology. This brief review summarizes the known effects of strontium on bone tissue and bone cells, and discusses the potential interest of strontium for the treatment of osteoporosis.
