Termine review exciting, new developments in the areas of noncollagen proteins, γ-carboxyglutamic acid protein, and osteonectin that are found in the bone matrix. These bone matrix proteins may be important in normal mineralization and may be altered by a variety of skeletal diseases.

The chapter on calcitonin by Talmage et al stresses the potential role of calcitonin in relation to the gastrointestinal tract as well as to the skeletal storage of calcium in the region of the surface osteocytes.
