Management of corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis.
Summary of "Management of corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis."
Treatment with corticosteroids can adversely affect bone metabolism. In particular, it lowers bone mineral density (BMD) and increases the likelihood of fragility fractures, the hallmarks of osteoporosis, hence the term 'corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis'.1 Since corticosteroids are used for a wide variety of inflammatory conditions, corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis represents a substantial disease burden. Here we aim to provide advice on prophylaxis and treatment for osteoporosis in adults receiving corticosteroid therapy.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.
A nonhormonal medication for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women. This drug builds healthy bone, restoring some of the bone loss as a result of osteoporosis.
Materials Management, Hospital
The management of all procurement, distribution, and storage of equipment and supplies, as well as logistics management including laundry, processing of reusables, etc.
Management Quality Circles
Participation of employees with management as a labor-management team, in decisions pertaining to the operational activities of the organization or industry.

BACKGROUND: Osteoporosis, the underlying cause of most hip fractures, is underdiagnosed and undertreated. The 2008 Joint Commission report Improving and Measuring Osteoporosis Management showed only a...
To prevent osteoporotic fracture occurrence, a variety of treatment regimens with different mechanisms of action is available. The antiresorptive bisphosphonate drugs are currently the most commonly p...
The intake of high doses of corticosteroids is known to play an important role in the weakening of the bones and is thus an increasing fracture risk. Zoledronic acid (Aclasta) is a drug kn...
Osteoporosis is a condition in which the amount of bone is reduced, the bones are weak, and there is an increased risk for fractures. Glucocorticoids (such as prednisone) are prescribed t...
We wish to investigate whether a weekly, 2½ hour group-based osteoporosis education intervention (the Osteoporosis Prevention and Self-Management Course), is different to one session cour...
The purpose of the study is to evaluate the impact disease management interventions in treatment compliance among post-fracture and osteoporosis patients.
The purpose of this study is to assess the impact of disease management interventions on bone mineral density (BMD) screening rates and osteoporosis treatment rates in women age 65 years o...
