There are few reports concerning to the seasonal variation of osteoporosis treatment. In this study, we plan to compare clinical efficacy and safety by seasons.
Vitamin D insufficiency is common in many countries. Vitamin D insufficiency is associated with osteoporosis and the responses to osteoporosis treatment. 25-hydroxyvitamin D (25OHD) is considered to be the best estimate of body stores of vitamin D and the seasonal variation of 25OHD is well known. But there are few reports concerning to the seasonal variation of osteoporosis treatment. In this study, we plan to compare clinical efficacy and safety by seasons in patients treated by raloxifene.

Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM)

The purpose of this study is to determine whether Raloxifene, a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM), improves cognitive function in women with Alzheimer's disease.
The aim of the project is to investigate the use of Raloxifene (a new form of estrogen) as a treatment for schizophrenia in postmenopausal women. Raloxifene is a Selective Estrogen Recept...

The Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is a common disorder related to ovulation problems. Clomiphene citrate (CC) is the drug of first choice for this condition. Nevertheless, CC has a de...
Vulvovaginal atrophy (VVA) is a condition that impacts up to 60% of the growing postmenopausal female population, and the most common symptom is dyspareunia. Vaginal estrogen is the most c...
A substantial proportion of women with schizophrenia experience debilitating treatment-refractory symptoms. The efficacy of estrogen in modulating brain function in schizophrenia has to be balanced ag...
Anti-bone resorptive drugs such as bisphosphonates, the anti-RANKL antibody (denosumab), or selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMs) have been developed to treat osteoporosis. Mechanisms underly...
Steroid sulfatase (STS), the enzyme which converts inactive sulfated steroid precursors into active hormones, is a promising therapeutic target for the treatment of estrogen-sensitive breast cancer. W...
Motor symptoms in Parkinson's disease (PD) are often preceded by nonmotor symptoms related to dysfunctions of the autonomic nervous system such as constipation, defecatory problems, and delayed gastri...
The aim of this study was to identify the effect of selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) on non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) in Asian women.
A second generation selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) used to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It has estrogen agonist effects on bone and cholesterol metabolism but behaves as a complete estrogen antagonist on mammary gland and uterine tissue.
A first generation selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM). Like TAMOXIFEN, it is an estrogen agonist for bone tissue and cholesterol metabolism but is antagonistic on mammary and uterine tissue.
One of the SELECTIVE ESTROGEN RECEPTOR MODULATORS with tissue-specific activities. Tamoxifen acts as an anti-estrogen (inhibiting agent) in the mammary tissue, but as an estrogen (stimulating agent) in cholesterol metabolism, bone density, and cell proliferation in the ENDOMETRIUM.
One of the ESTROGEN RECEPTORS that has marked affinity for ESTRADIOL. Its expression and function differs from, and in some ways opposes, ESTROGEN RECEPTOR BETA.
A structurally diverse group of compounds distinguished from ESTROGENS by their ability to bind and activate ESTROGEN RECEPTORS but act as either an agonist or antagonist depending on the tissue type and hormonal milieu. They are classified as either first generation because they demonstrate estrogen agonist properties in the ENDOMETRIUM or second generation based on their patterns of tissue specificity.
