P1NP and CTX are recommended by the International Osteoporosis Foundation and the International Federation of Clinical Chemistry and Laboratory Medicine as the markers of bone formation and bone resorption, respectively.[12],[13] N-terminal midfragment of osteocalcin (N-MID) is a degradation product of osteocalcin and its level in the peripheral blood can reflect the activity of osteoblasts and the rate of bone mineralization.
It is a novel, stable, highly orally bioavailable gallium-based compound that selectively targets both bone tissue (preventing bone resorption) and bone tumors (killing the tumor cells).
GLP-1 receptor-deficient mice were reported to exhibit osteopenia and increased osteoclast formation, suggesting that the GLP-1 signaling has an inhibitory effect of bone resorption on bone metabolism [31].

Editor's Note: Tartrate-resistant acid phosphatase (a marker of bone resorption; increased levels of this enzyme indicate increased bone loss) and sclerostin (a protein that has anti-anabolic effects on bone formation) were lower and the ratio of bone specific alkaline phosphatase (a marker of bone formation) to tartrate-resistant alkaline phosphatase was higher after six months in the KoACT[R] group, while the control group experienced no change.
The promontory is not a common site for bone resorption because (1) it is not an area that is involved in accumulation of cholesteatoma perimatrix substances, (2) it is the densest bone of the human body, and (3) pressure necrosis from overlying tissue is uncommon.
