insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF1) production and autocrine/paracrine (local) actions via the osteoblast GH-receptor (GHR). In addition, local GH actions may be indirect (IGF1 dependent) or direct (IGF1 independent) ( Isgaard et al . 1986 , 1989 , Le

pathway may aid in the design of improved anabolic therapies. The effects of PTH on bone mass are likely to be mediated by cells of the osteoblast lineage. This lineage includes committed pre-osteoblasts, matrix-producing osteoblasts, bone lining cells

Introduction Bone homeostasis is maintained by a balance between bone-building osteoblasts and bone-resorbing osteoclasts, a process known as bone remodeling ( Feng & McDonald 2011 , Kular et al . 2012 ). Age-related bone loss is associated with

-forming cells. N-BPs stimulate proliferation and differentiation of osteoblasts at low concentrations. At high concentrations, N-BPs inhibit proliferation and bone nodule formation ( Giuliani et al . 1998 , Reinholtz et al . 2000 ). It has also been pointed
