Abstract

Osteum (Schering Corporation - sodium oleate solution) was assessed for its effects on osteoblast proliferation and/ or activity. Mice given 0.1 cc of sodium oleate solution near site of fracture were tested against controls. Qualitative and quantitative results show that Osteum accelerates osteoblast proliferation and/or activity, but mechanism is unclear.
