Current indications include Paget's and 0.1 mM L-ascorbic 2-phosphate at 37oC with 95% disease, post-menopausal osteoporosis and hypercalcemia of humidity and 5% CO . Cells were treated with three different malignancy.1 Bisphosphonates are also considered for fibrous bisphosphonates including 10-8M alendronate (Fosamax, dysplasia 2 and other disorders affecting bone metabolism such Merck, Rahway, NY), 10-8M risedronate (Actonel, Proctor & Gamble, Cincinnati, OH), 10-8M zoledronate (Zometa, Bisphosphonates are being investigated for their ability to Novartis, Basel, Switzerland), positive controls (addition of 10- prevent bony erosions in rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis 8M Dexamethasone or 10-8M Vitamin D) and negative control and peri-implant bone resorption around joint replacement (medium alone).

All RT-PCR products were visualized on The purpose of this study was to determine the effects of 1.5% agarose gel with 0.5g/ml ethidium bromide. Photographs bisphosphonates (alendronate, risedronate and zoledronate) on were taken under ultra-violet illumination (Gel Documentation differentiation of human bone marrow stromal cells (hBMSC) System, UVP, Upland, CA) and qualitative assessments were in a clinically relevant in vitro cell culture model.
RNA was treated with DNAse I using the DNA-free kit (AMS Human bone marrow was obtained from the femora of Biotechnology Ltd, CH, Abingdon Oxon, UK). cDNA synthesis three human patients (age 69 to 76) undergoing primary total was performed by incubating the RNA with random hexam- hip arthroplasty for osteoarthritis. hBMSC were separated by ers, using Stratrascript reverse transcriptase (Stratagene, NL, density centrifugation on Percoll (1.077 g/cc) and cultured La Jolla, CA). Real-time quantitative RT-PCR reactions were performed and monitored using an ABI Prism 7700 Sequence Detection System (Perkin-Elmer Applied Biosystems, Foster Address correspondence to:
City, CA). In the same reaction, cDNA samples were analysed both for the gene of interest and the reference gene (18-S Arun S. Shanbhag, PhD, MBAGRJ 1115, 55 Fruit Street rRNA), using a multiplex approach (Perkin Elmer User Bulletin N. 2). Technical settings, primers and probes sequences were STATISTICAL ANALYSIS
Statistical analysis of real-time RT-PCR data was assessed using one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA) and post-hoc
paired, double-sided t-tests generated from 2 independent
hBMSC cultures, with p< 0.05 considered to be significant.
All three bisphosphonates enhanced osteoblastic differen- tiation of hBMSC in vitro (Fig. 1). Semiquantitative RT-PCR and quantitative real-time RT-PCR analysis demonstrated upregulated mRNA expression for CBFA-1, BMP-2, and type I collagen in hBMSC after administration of alendronate, rise-dronate, and zoledronate (Fig. 2). These effects were most pro-nounced after 14 days of culture, particularly under treatment with zoledronate (p< 0.05 versus control for Collagen type I), risedronate (p< 0.05 versus control for Collagen type I) and Figure. 1: Enhanced osteoblastic differentiation under bisphosphonate treatment DISCUSSION
This study provides further evidence that bisphosphonates have anabolic effects on osteoblasts. Different bisphosphonate treatments induced an upregulated gene expression pattern of hBMSC in vitro and triggered differentiation of omnipotential hBMSC along the osteoblastic differentiation pathway. These findings are consistent with reports of osteogenic differentia- tion, by Frank, et al. 11 Interestingly, these effects followed a time- and type-dependent pattern. Of note, the highly potent new bisphosphonate, zolendronate, tended to have the stron-gest effects on osteogenic differentiation of hBMSC reflecting Figure 2: Gene expression after 14 days of hMBSC culture determined using semi-quantitative RT-PCR. GAPDH served as housekeeping gene.
the higher biological potency of this drug as demonstrated in recent clinical trials. 6 The mechanism of action behind the anabolic effects of bisphosphonates on osteoblastic differentiation of hBMSC in vitro is not known. Our data suggests that bisphosphonates might initially promote expression of key genes like BMP-2 or CBFA-1, which secondarily causes a pronounced osteogenic differentiation of pluripotential hBMSC. Further investigation is needed to determine how our in vitro results translate to bone quality and bone turnover in vivo. In summary, our findings suggest that the in vivo use of bisphosphonates could lead to enhanced recruitment of bone forming cells, and ultimately show pronounced bone formation and net gain of bone mass. An enhanced understanding of the complex interactions of bisphosphonates with bone metabo-lism, on both the osteoblastic and osteoclastic side, might open Figure 3: mRNA levels of collagen type I determined using real-time PCR.
