Table 1 DEXA scan results of heparin treated and control rats show that daily subcutaneour heparin injections significantly decreased the local and overall bone mineral density

From: Is decreased bone mineral density associated with development of scoliosis? A bipedal osteopenic rat model

  Bone Mineral Density Mean ± STdev (gram/cm2)  
  Heparin Control P value
Legs 0.104 ± 0.014 0.114 ± 0.009 < 0.05
Pelvis 0.090 ± 0.011 0.100 ± 0.008 < 0.05
Spine 0.088 ± 0.011 0.102 ± 0.011 < 0.05
Total 0.110 ± 0.012 0.121 ± 0.008 < 0.05
