Therapeutic Effect of Lipophilic and/or Hydrophilic Zinc Related Compound Injections on Alveolar Bone Mass in Zinc-Deficient Osteoporosis Rats
The purpose of this research is improvement of therapeutic treatment for periodontitis by using lipophilic and/or hydrophilic zinc materials. The sample suspension injections were prepared from zinc octanate, zinc stearate, zinc sulfate hepta-hydrate and tricalcium phosphate containing 6.17w/w% zinc. After administrating of all injections to around alveolar bone of zinc-deficient osteoporosis rats, plasma Zn concentration, bone mineral content and bone mechanical strength of jawbone and femur of Zn deficient rats were measured as therapeutic scores.
