From Blood to Bone (and back)! — Dr. Rhonda Prisby, from University of Texas at Arlington, joins me on ideaXme ( to discuss her fascinating research in the Bone Vascular and Micro-Circulation Laboratory, focusing on the unique interaction between vascular and skeletal systems, and novel disease states where vessels become bone-like “dead space”! — #Ideaxme #Bone #Microcirculation #Vasculature #Ossification #Atherosclerosis #Parathyroid #Osteoblast #Osteoclast #Health #Wellness #Regeneration #Longevity #Aging #IraPastor #Bioquark #Regenerage

Ira Pastor, ideaXme exponential health ambassador, interviews Dr. Rhonda Prisby, Associate Professor in the Department of Kinesiology, at The University of Texas at Arlington.

Ira Pastor comments:

We have a fascinating show today focusing on the intersection of the cardiovascular system and the skeletal system.

We will be discussing interesting recent evidence that suggests a unique link between cardiovascular disease and osteoporosis, a disease in which both the density and quality of bone are reduced, where bones become more porous and fragile, and the risk of fracture is greatly increased.

Bone Blood Vessels:

It has been known that adequate vascular supply is critical for proper bone healing following fracture, and that bone blood vessels participate in a variety of physiological processes in the bone marrow.

However, little is known about how the blood vessels in bone contribute to bone health and disease, as well as the reverse – that is how all of the unique dynamics in the bone micro-environment have effects on other tissues.
