Paget's Disease, Mammary
An intraductal carcinoma of the breast extending to involve the nipple and areola, characterized clinically by eczema-like inflammatory skin changes and histologically by infiltration of the dermis by malignant cells (Paget's cells). (Dorland, 27th ed)
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.
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Fibrous Dysplasia Of Bone
A disease of bone marked by thinning of the cortex and replacement of bone marrow by gritty fibrous tissue containing bony spicules, producing pain, disability, and gradually increasing deformity. Only one bone may be involved (FIBROUS DYSPLASIA, MONOSTOTIC) or several (FIBROUS DYSPLASIA, POLYOSTOTIC). (From Dorland, 28th ed)
Bone Density Conservation Agents
Agents that inhibit BONE RESORPTION and/or favor BONE MINERALIZATION and BONE REGENERATION. They are used to heal BONE FRACTURES and to treat METABOLIC BONE DISEASES.
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that patients with Paget's disease of the bone who had responded to zoledronic acid treatment as participants in the core registration studies C...
HORIZON TOP will study the effect of zoledronic acid given once as an iv infusion compared to 60 days of oral risedronate in patients with Paget's disease of bone. The effect will be demo...
Impact on Reducing the Incidence of Low Serum Calcium by Providing Educational Materials on the Need to Take Daily Supplemental Calcium and Vitamin D to Patients With Paget's Disease Treated With Reclast®
This study will evaluate the impact of investigator and patient education and educational materials to foster calcium and vitamin D supplementation to mitigate the potential for hypocalcem...
This 2-year study will test the effectiveness of combining parathyroid hormone (PTH) and alendronate for treating osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Alendronate is a drug used to treat...
Inheritance of Osteosarcoma & Paget's Disease Through Chromosome 18: Examination of Osteosarcoma Tissue Samples From Two Family Members for Loss of Heterozygosity in the Chromosome 18 Region, Genetically Linked With Paget's Disease of Bone
Researchers have previously demonstrated loss of heterozygosity in a region on chromosome 18q, associated with osteogenic sarcomas in bone affected by Paget's disease. The loci used in th...
Studies of the etiology of Paget's disease have focused separately on the viral and genetic components of the disease. In this issue of Cell Metabolism, Kurihara et al. (2011) join these components,...
Paget's disease is a disorder of bone remodelling affecting 1-2% of the general population, most frequently men over 50 years of age. Sarcomatous degeneration occurs in 0.1-0.95% of patients with Pag...
Background: Bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis (BON) of the jaw is a growing concern in the dental community, but the possible presence of residual bisphosphonates in demineralized allograft bone...
Paget's disease is a chronic disorder of bone remodeling, characterized by an abnormal increase of osteoclast and, hence, osteoblast activity. The imbalance of bone turnover results in the formation o...
Paget disease of the bone is a chronic disease characterized by accelerated bone turnover with abnormal repair leading to expansion, pain and deformities. The disease is common in the West, but little...
