ACP Updates Guidelines on Treating Low Bone Density, Osteoporosis (FREE)

By Amy Orciari Herman Edited by David G. Fairchild, MD, MPH, and Jaye Elizabeth Hefner, MD Clinicians should offer alendronate, risedronate, zoledronic acid, or denosumab to women with osteoporosis to reduce the risk for hip and vertebral fractures (strong …

AbstractAimThe primary aim of this study was to analyze the frequency and characteristic patterns of fall-related fractures as well as consecutive hospitalization and management relating to such fractures. In addition, important pathognomonic and therapeutic aspects are discussed.MethodsThis retrospective mono-center study was conducted at the University Hospital Frankfurt am Main, Germany. Between 2007 and 2017, a total of 145 PD patients with fall-related fractures were identified via a retrospective systematic query in the hospital information system using the ICD-10 German modification codes G20.0 –G20.9. Patient...

In conclusion, a polypharmacology approach of combining established, prolongevity drug inhibitors of specific nodes may be the most effective way to target the nutrient-sensing network to improve late-life health. Deletion of p38α in Neurons Slows Neural Stem Cell Decline and Loss of Cognitive Function in Mice Researchers here provide evidence for p38α to be involved in the regulation of diminished neural stem cell activity with age. It is thought...

Authors: Zhang H, Ding W, Ji F, Wu D Abstract The present study aimed to investigate bone morphogenetic protein (BMP)-2 and microRNA (miR)-410 expression and the mechanism of regulation in serum and CD14+ peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) from postmenopausal osteoporosis patients and model mice. A total of 26 patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis were included in the experimental group and 29 age-matched healthy subjects were included in the control group. A total of 60 mice were divided into sham and ovariectomized (OVX) groups. Following surgery, 28 mice remained in the sham and 25 mice remained in O...

CONCLUSIONS: LncRNA GAS5 is lowly expressed in patients with osteoporosis. Overexpression of GAS5 promotes osteogenic differentiation of hMSCs through regulating microRNA-498 to up-regulate RUNX2 expression, thus alleviating the development of osteoporosis. PMID: 31599401 [PubMed - in process]

Abstract We investigated the effects of ibandronate, a bisphosphonate; eldecalcitol, an active vitamin D3 analogue; and combination treatment with both agents on secondary osteoporosis and arthritis using rats with adjuvant-induced arthritis. Arthritis was induced in 8-week-old male Lewis rats. Rats were randomized into four treatment groups and an untreated normal control group: ibandronate, eldecalcitol, ibandronate + eldecalcitol, vehicle, and control. Paw thickness was measured to evaluate arthritis. Joint destruction was evaluated histomorphometrically by the ankle joint stained with Fast Green and safranin O...

AbstractSummaryIn the large community-based SCOOP trial, systematic fracture risk screening using FRAX® led to greater use of AOM and greater adherence, in women at high fracture risk, compared with usual care.IntroductionIn the SCreening of Older wOmen for Prevention of fracture (SCOOP) trial, we investigated the effect of the screening intervention on subsequent long-term self-reported adherence to anti-osteoporosis medications (AOM).MethodsSCOOP was a primary care –based UK multicentre trial of screening for fracture risk. A total of 12,483 women (70–85 years) were randomised to either usual NHS car...
