To investigate the effect of menatetrenone on bone turnover in postmenopausal patients with osteoporosis. One month of menatetrenone therapy enhanced the secretion and gamma-carboxylation of osteocalcin. Moderate increases of bone resorption and formation markers were observed after 6 months. These changes may contribute to fracture prevention in patients with osteoporosis.

To investigate a new incidence and preventive effect of menatetrenone on vertebral fracture in patients with osteoporosis who were randomly assigned to either treatment arm receiving daily...
Vitamin D and calcium are essential in the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis. What dosage of vitamin D which is the ideal one, is not yet clear. We want to test the hypothesis that ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the superiority of inhibitory effects and safety of Menatetrenone (E0167) on recurrence in patients with hepatocellular carcinoma.
In 2006, Weinberg proposed a hypothesis that iron accumulation was a risk factor for osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a common complication in various diseases, such as hemochromatosis, Afric...
The standard recommendation to prevent osteoporosis is to supplement low doses of vitamin D and calcium. Hyperhomocysteinemia has been related to increased risk of osteoporosis.
This study analyses the difference in 25OH-vitamin D values between two groups of patients both affected by severe osteoporosis with fragility fractures, but one group has vertebral fractures and the ...
Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disorder characterized by a decrease in bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue. The World Health Organization has defined osteoporosis as a d...
It is now 100 years since deficiency of vitamin D was identified as the cause of rickets and osteomalacia (see Figure). Since then, enormous amounts of work have been undertaken elucidating the synthe...
Vitamin D deficiency is an increasing problem affecting all ages. Patients should be assessed for risk factors as part of preventive health maintenance. Vitamin D toxicity is a rare occurrence caused ...
As for the association between vitamin D receptor (VDR) gene polymorphisms and osteoporosis, the current results have yielded conflicts. Therefore, we performed a pooled analysis based on Chinese indi...
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 lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
A nutritional condition produced by a deficiency of VITAMIN D in the diet, insufficient production of vitamin D in the skin, inadequate absorption of vitamin D from the diet, or abnormal conversion of vitamin D to its bioactive metabolites. It is manifested clinically as RICKETS in children and OSTEOMALACIA in adults. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1406)
OXIDOREDUCTASES which mediate vitamin K metabolism by converting inactive vitamin K 2,3-epoxide to active vitamin K.
A family of phylloquinones that contains a ring of 2-methyl-1,4-naphthoquinone and an isoprenoid side chain. Members of this group of vitamin K 1 have only one double bond on the proximal isoprene unit. Rich sources of vitamin K 1 include green plants, algae, and photosynthetic bacteria. Vitamin K1 has antihemorrhagic and prothrombogenic activity.
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...
