Early changes in bone turnover predict longer-term changes in bone mineral density but not trabecular bone score in frail older women.

Arch Osteoporos 2020 May 26;15(1):79. Epub 2020 May 26.

Division of Geriatrics, Department of Medicine, University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA, USA.

Clinicians and patients want to know if therapy is working early in their course of treatment. We found that early changes in bone turnover markers at 6 months were associated with long-term changes in bone mineral density but not trabecular bone score at 12 and 24 months.

Purpose: We sought to examine the association between shorter-term changes in markers of bone turnover and longer-term changes in bone mineral density (BMD) and microstructure in a cohort of frail elderly women with multiple comorbid conditions including osteoporosis. Read More

Ambiguity hindering self-management and prevention of osteoporosis in post-menopausal women.

Arch Osteoporos 2020 May 16;15(1):73. Epub 2020 May 16.

Institute of Bone and Joint Research, Kolling Institute of Medical Research, University of Sydney, Sydney, Australia.

As osteoporosis relies largely on self-managed prevention and adherence to long-term treatment regimens, it is imperative that those at risk understand the disease that they are attempting to prevent. Ambiguity regarding osteoporosis and reluctance to take anti-osteoporosis medication (AOM) as well as calcium was noted in Australian post-menopausal women. This may lead to underestimating women's own risk of osteoporosis and fracture. Read More

Bone mineral density and trabecular bone score in treatment-naïve patients with non-cirrhotic hepatitis C virus infection.

Arch Osteoporos 2020 May 12;15(1):72. Epub 2020 May 12.

Bone Metabolic Unit, Department of Internal Medicine, Hospital Universitario Marqués de Valdecilla-IDIVAL, Universidad de Cantabria, Avda. Valdecilla s/n, 39008, Santander, Spain.

We studied 112 treatment-naïve chronic HCV patients without cirrhosis, and we found that, especially HCV+ postmenopausal women, they had lower TBS and BMD values than healthy controls. This suggests that HCV infection is an independent risk factor for osteoporosis, and therefore, screening for osteoporosis in postmenopausal HCV+ women should be considered.

Purpose: To know whether patients in earlier stages of chronic HCV infection are at increased risk of developing low bone mass and bone microarchitectural changes and whether there is an association between bone metabolism and the severity of the liver disease. Read More
