Furthermore, intramembranous ossification beneath the periosteum is a mechanism for increasing the diameter of long bones. • Endochondral ossification: Most of the skeleton is formed by this process, whereby osteoid is deposited on pre-existing cartilage. Continuous endochondral ossification at the epiphyseal plate is responsible for longitudinal bone growth. The complex of newly formed bone with a core of calcified cartilage is called “primary spongiosa” and later replaced by mature lamellar bone.

8 % of the bone is replaced annually by the activity of the bone remodelling units (BRU). 3 Modelling and Remodelling of Bone The following four stages of osteoclast activity are involved: • Formation and differentiation of osteoclasts from their precursors (RANKL) • Migration and attachment of osteoclasts to the osseous surface (β3 integrins) • Osteoclastic secretion of factors for acidification and solution of minerals (V-H+-ATPase, chloride channels) • Dissolution of matrix (cathepsin K) Currently, the majority of the treatments for osteoporosis tested so far target inhibition of bone resorption.

The skeleton. The peak bone mass attained in early life is a 41 major determinant of subsequent bone mass and of fracture risk in later life. Peak bone mass is greater in men than in women, although these differences are reduced or even reversed if bone mass is expressed as volumetric bone density. Calcium tends to be stored in the osseous tissue during the day and slowly released during the night.
