The Effects of Seasonal Changes in Osteoporosis Treatment

2016-12-01 16:08:22 | BioPortfolio

Summary

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.

Description

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.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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. (Horm Res 1997;48:155-63)
