Reporting Groups
  Description
Healthy Volunteers

Subjects who are non-diabetic, with no history of smoking within the past two years and no metabolic bone disease diagnosis.

Zimmer Trabecular Metal Test Cylinder: For all subjects 2 titanium and 2 trabecular 2.9-3.0 mm x 5 mm test cylinders will be implanted in alveolar bone. One of each type will be removed at 2 weeks. The remaining two will be removed at 4 weeks.

Zimmer Titanium Test Cylinder: For all subjects 2 titanium and 2 trabecular 2.9-3.0 mm x 5 mm test cylinders will be implanted in alveolar bone. One of each type will be removed at 2 weeks. The remaining two will be removed at 4 weeks.

Diabetic Subjects

Subjects must have Type 2 diabetes mellitus as diagnosed by a physician or in medication history. The condition must be currently diagnosed and treated by medications and/or insulin.

Zimmer Titanium Test Cylinder: For all subjects 2 titanium and 2 trabecular 2.9-3.0 mm x 5 mm test cylinders will be implanted in alveolar bone. One of each type will be removed at 2 weeks. The remaining two will be removed at 4 weeks.

Osteopenic Subjects

Subjects must be diagnosed with osteoporosis or osteopenia and must be currently under the care of a physician and treatment with oral bisphosphonates

Zimmer Trabecular Metal Test Cylinder: For all subjects 2 titanium and 2 trabecular 2.9-3.0 mm x 5 mm test cylinders will be implanted in alveolar bone. One of each type will be removed at 2 weeks. The remaining two will be removed at 4 weeks.

  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Fold Change in Gene Expression Comparing Trabecular Metal to Standard Titanium.   [ Time Frame: 2 weeks & 4 weeks post placement ]

2.  Secondary:   To Examine the Differences in the Gene Expression Profiles Not Only Comparing Trabecular Metal to Titanium, But Also Examining These Differences in Subjects With Three Systemic Conditions Associated With Delayed Healing: Diabetes and Osteoporosis.   [ Time Frame: 2 years ]
