Title Of The Study: Bone Mass Density Estimation: Archimede’s Principle Versus Automatic X-Ray Histogram And Edge Detection Technique In Ovariectomized Rats Treated With Germinated Brown Rice Bioactives

Osteoporosis and other degenerative disease are among the most challenging non-communicable diseases to treat. Natural therapy to treat such diseases has been an area of interest to researchers. In this study Germinated Brown Rice were evaluated as a potential agent to show an increase in Bone density that might be via activation of zinc formatin and increase of calcium content as detected by x-ray edge detection technique.

Title Of The Study: The Effects Of Oryzanol On Bone Mineral Density In Ovariectomized Retired Breeder Rats

The hormonal changes of menopause can produce a variety of symptoms. Osteoporosis is one of the diseases that results in the weakening of bone that may occur after Menopause. In this study, Rice Bran Oil, which contains natural Oryzanol was identified as an Osteogenic inducer and proved to be slightly protective in preventing bone loss at several sites in the body suggested that it may cause benefits to humans.
