The Histological Structures of Tail Bones in Ovariectomi and Non-ovariectomi Rats

Abstract



This experiment was conducted to study the microscopic structure of tail bones in ovariectomized and non-ovariectomy rats. Fourteen female
Sprague Dawley rats 7 weeks old were randomly divided into 2 groups. The rats in the control group were non-ovariectimized. The rats in group
II were ovariectomized. The samples were then fed with phosphate/calcium diet with ratio of 2 to 1. The rats was sacrificed after 12 weeks. The
tail bone were collected and processed for microscopic examination with trichrome staining. The results showed that structurally the
osteoporosis occurred in tail bone of group K2. Its could be concluded that estrogen deficiency condition (ovariectomy) caused osteoporosis in
tail bones.
