To explore whether use of depot-medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) in adolescent and young adult females with cerebral palsy is associated with lower bone mineral density (BMD).
This article was published in the following journal.
To evaluate calcium metabolism and bone mineral density (BMD) in new users of depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DMPA) in the first year of use.
To compare medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) concentrations between HIV-infected women on antiretroviral therapy (ART) and HIV-negative women initiating depot medroxyprogesterone (DMPA) injectable.
Depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (Depo-Provera) is the most commonly used injectable hormone contraceptive in Sub-Sahara Africa where HIV incidence is high. We determined the impact of Depo-Provera o...
The objectives of this study were to study bone mineral content (BMC), bone mineral density (BMD), vitamin D level, and bone turnover markers in children with hemophilia and compare it with their norm...
Medroxyprogesterone acetate (MPA) (1) has been transformed by two filamentous fungi, including Absidia griseolla var. igachii and Acremonium chrysogenum, into 11α-hydroxy- medroxyprogesterone acetate...
Depot medroxyprogesterone acetate (DepoProvera) is an acceptable form of contraception for many women. However, difficulty in access may cause many women to discontinue use, often without ...
Protease inhibitors (PI) have been associated with an acceleration of bone mineral density loss in HIV-infected individuals because of an enhanced osteoclast activity, although some contro...
This study compared the rates and extents of medroxyprogesterone absorption from two medroxyprogesterone acetate injection formulations following single 150 mg intramuscular (IM) injection...
(A) Major 1) to compare the effectiveness of norethindrone acetate (NA) with GnRH agonist (Lupron-Depot-3) in relieving symptoms of endometriosis, 2) to compare bone density in the two tre...
Patients with endometriosis-associated pain have conservative surgery performed to remove all visible lesions. Then, patients are randomized into two groups. In the first group patients ha...
The amount of mineral per square centimeter of BONE. This is the definition used in clinical practice. Actual bone density would be expressed in grams per milliliter. It is most frequently measured by X-RAY ABSORPTIOMETRY or TOMOGRAPHY, X RAY COMPUTED. Bone density is an important predictor for OSTEOPOROSIS.
A synthetic progestin that is derived from 17-hydroxyprogesterone. It is a long-acting contraceptive that is effective both orally or by intramuscular injection and has also been used to treat breast and endometrial neoplasms.
Decrease, loss, or removal of the mineral constituents of bones. Temporary loss of bone mineral content is especially associated with space flight, weightlessness, and extended immobilization. OSTEOPOROSIS is permanent, includes reduction of total bone mass, and is associated with increased rate of fractures. CALCIFICATION, PHYSIOLOGIC is the process of bone remineralizing. (From Dorland, 27th ed; Stedman, 25th ed; Nicogossian, Space Physiology and Medicine, 2d ed, pp327-33)
Removal of mineral constituents or salts from bone or bone tissue. Demineralization is used as a method of studying bone strength and bone chemistry.
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.
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
