Histopharmacology of developing bone

 

Sex hormones can lead to premature synostosis. Osteopetrosis causes increased calcification but bones become brittle and therefore break easily. In osteoporosis there is demineralization of bone which then has less calcium. Osteopetrosis may be caused by increased calcitonin (or katacalcin) while osteoporosis  may be caused by sex hormone withdrawal as in post menopausal syndrome and increase secretion of parathormone.
