The Jinshan Branch program enrolled patient with 1) new hip fracture 2)...
The goals of the trial are: - To determine the prevalence of osteoporosis in subgroups of COPD patients. - To look for risk factors of osteoporosis in COPD patients. - To create sub-groups for prospective research concerning the effects of bisphosphonates on osteoporosis variables in COPD patients.
Osteoporosis or "thinning of the bones" affects in 1 in 4 Canadian women and 1 in 8 Canadian men. Moreover, while the rates of osteoporosis among Canadians are stabilizing, worldwide the number of people afflicted with osteoporosis continues to rise. The most serious complication of osteoporosis is a broken bone or fracture. Fractures due to osteoporosis can result in long hospital stays, dependence on others, and premature death. While there are several medications that pr...
This cross-sectional study aimed to validate the effectiveness of the combined use of the Osteoporosis Self-Assessment Tool for Asians (OSTA) and the One-Minute Osteoporosis Risk Test (IOF test) in a population from Wuhan, China.
Aim: Investigating the effects of Clinical Pilates Exercise on kinesiophobia, pain, functional status and quality of life of the patients diagnosed with osteoporosis. Method: 47 patients were assessed and randomly divided into 2 groups. Exercise group patients joined exercise program regularly that was held 3 times a week, 1 hour a day, during 6 weeks with physiotherapist. Control group patients continued their normal daily lives without any exercise. After 7 patients quit the...
Osteoporosis induced by glucocorticoids excess constitutes the main cause of secondary osteoporosis. Most of data available are provided from cohort studies of patients treated by corticosteroids, affecting among 1% of population. In contrast, very few data on osteoporosis are available in the Cushing syndrome (CS), a rare disease affecting 1 or 2 million of inhabitants, and characterized by an endogen glucocorticoid excess production. This affection is responsable of frequent ...
The aim of the ROCQ programme is to improve the use of evidence based osteoporosis diagnostic and treatment strategies for women 50 years and over who have suffered a fragility fracture. This objective will be achieved by concentrating on a realistic evaluation of the present diagnosis and treatment rate of osteoporosis following a fragility fracture and comparing it to an optimal situation (care gap) and proposing interventions that promote new approaches to treating osteoporo...
The aim of this research registry is to collect information on individuals with osteoporosis, those with risk factors for osteoporosis, and comparative healthy controls. Bone mineral density measurements will be done on these individuals to determine bone health.
Osteoporosis is a common disease that makes the bones fragile and easy to break. Osteoporotic fractures are a serious health problem resulting in pain, reduced mobility, increasing degree of dependence and sometimes death. Osteoporosis is currently diagnosed by measuring bone density at the hip/spine through an exam called DXA. Although all post-menopausal women are at higher risk, currently Italian national guidelines do not recommend population-screening programs. This leads...
Osteoporosis is a condition in which the amount of bone is reduced, the bones are weak, and there is an increased risk for fractures. Glucocorticoids (such as prednisone) are prescribed to treat a large number of conditions such as arthritis and asthma. When taken for several months or longer, glucocorticoids can cause bone loss and lead to a form of osteoporosis called "glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis." This study compared the effects of teriparatide, the study drug, wi...
This study's primary objective is to assess the effects of environmental lead exposures and genetic risk factors on the development of osteoporosis in middle-aged women.
Osteoporosis is a disease that affects millions of individuals in the United States and abroad. It leads to decreased bone mass and causes an increased risk of fracture. This study will compare continuous versus cyclic treatment with teriparatide combined with alendronate, another drug for osteoporosis, or teriparatide alone in women with osteoporosis.
To assess the effects of various postmenopausal estrogen replacement therapies on selected cardiovascular risk factors, including high density lipoprotein cholesterol, systolic blood pressure, fibrinogen, and insulin and on osteoporosis risk factors. Conducted in collaboration with the National Institute of Child Health and Human Development, the National Institute of Arthritis and Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases, The National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney D...
Transient osteoporosis of pregnancy (TOoP) is uncommonly encountered in orthopedic and obstetric practice, with most reports consisting of single cases. This rare condition consists of significant osteoporosis affecting the hips and spine, causing significant morbidity, and putting young female patients at risk for vertebral and femoral neck fractures. The pathogenesis of transient osteoporosis of pregnancy is unknown, with various theories as to its etiology. Re...

The secondary objectives are to identify the optimal dosage for subsequent studies and to provide basis for the next confirmatory study in study design, endpoints, and study methodologies.
Bones grow and stay strong through a continuous process of formation (building) and resorption (break down). When more bone is formed than resorbed, the density (level of calcium) in bone increases and the bones become stronger. However, if more bone is resorbed than formed the density of bone decreases and the bones become weak. This condition is called osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a rare but serious condition in children. Childhood osteoporosis can occur without a...
This study will investigate if the drug zoledronic acid given once yearly is safe and has beneficial effects in treating osteoporosis by reducing bone loss and fractures in men with osteoporosis.
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, African hemosiderosis, thalassemia, and sickle cell disease, which all share iron accumulation as a common denominator. Moreover, a 3-year retrospective longitudinal study has shown that iron accumulation was also associated with osteoporosis in healthy adults and especially that it can increase th...
