A Theoretical Model for Simulating Effect of Parathyroid Hormone on Bone Metabolism at Cellular Level

Wang, Yanan; Qin, Qing Hua; Kalyanasundaram, Shankar


A mathematical model is developed for simulating anabolic behaviour of bone affected by Parathyroid Hormone (PTH) in this paper. The model incorporates a new understanding on the interaction of PTH and other factors with the RANK-RANKL-OPG pathway into bone remodelling, which is able to simulate anabolic actions of bone induced by PTH at cellular level. The RANK-RANKL-OPG pathway together with the dual action of TGF-Β, which represent the core of coupling behaviour between osteoblasts and...[Show more]
