  Purpose

To evaluate the effect of estrogen treatment on adipocytic and osteoblastic parameters by histomorphometrically measuring adipocyte volume (AV/TV) and adipocyte numbers in goldner's stained iliac crest bone biopsy specimens collected from subjects recruited in the study (IRB number 21B85). The adipocytic parameters will be then correlated with osteoblastic parameters obtained previously during the course of the initai study involving the effect of transdermal estrogen on bone turnover in postmenopausal osteoporotic women.
