From: Effects of eldecalcitol on cortical bone response to mechanical loading in rats

  VEH ED-L ED-M ED-H
Force (N) 37.5 ± 0.43 37.7 ± 0.4 37.7 ± 0.22 37.2 ± 0.32
Moment of inertia (mm4) 1.82 ± 0.22 1.95 ± 0.31 1.81 ± 0.20 1.77 ± 0.25
Compressive peak strain (μstrain) 2240.2 ± 225.8 2127.7 ± 256.9 2182.0 ± 199.2 2283.0 ± 278.1
  1. Compressive peak strain was calculated using beam-bending theory based on each moment of inertia. ED-H: high dose eldecalcitol; ED-M: medium dose eldecalcitol, ED-L; low dose eldecalcitol; VEH: vehicle
