Trends in and relation between hip fracture incidence and osteoporosis medication utilization and prices in Estonia in 2004 –2015

AbstractSummaryOsteoporosis medicines reduce osteoporotic fractures. There is a very strong negative correlation between the consumption of medicines and the price of an average daily dose indicating that affordability is a key factor that could increase consumption of antiosteoporotic medicines and, through that, reduce fractures.PurposeOsteoporosis is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the modern world. Our study aims to describe the trends in incidence of hip fractures in relation to drug utilization patterns and the average price of antiosteoporotic medicines in Estonia.MethodsData on hip fractures was obtained from the medical claims database of Estonian Health Insurance Fund (EHIF). Consumption and price data was obtained from the Estonian State Agency of Medicines (SAM).Consumption is presented using WHO defined daily doses methodology, and the prices reflect the average wholesale price of medicines.ResultsFrom 2004 to 2010 there was a non-significant increasing trend in standardized hip fracture incidence in Estonia, but from 2010 to 2015, the trend turned to a significant decrease of 4.5% per year. The consumption of osteoporosis medication increased significantly from 2004 to 2009 by yearly average of 41.2%. After 2009, the consumption levelled. On contrast, the average price of one daily dose of osteoporosis medication decreased significantly from 2004 to 2009 by 16.9% per year and the decrease also levelled after 2009. This gives a very strong negative co...

CONCLUSION: Our study demonstrates that the administration of h-ADSCs may have advantages in bone formation and consolidation but does not lead to bone overgrowth. These findings indicate that the administration of h-ADSCs is an alternative and efficient method for spinal fusion.PMID:34859827 | DOI:10.5137/1019-5149.JTN.33739-21.4

Conclusion: There is a high prevalence of reduced BMD among PLHIV aged under 50 which is mainly confounded by HIV diagnosis time, ART usage duration and TDF usage. Although virological control has been achieved, these patients should be followed up, considering that they may have decreased BMD.PMID:34856908 | DOI:10.2174/1570162X19666211202100308

We report rates of dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) scanning in an SSc cohort at a tertiary hospital specialized outpatient clinic and the prevalence and associations of osteoporosis in screened patients.MethodWe performed retrospective chart review to determine if patients underwent DXA scanning between 2007 and 2018 and extracted lumbar spine and femoral neck T-scores, fracture history, and osteoporosis therapy.ResultsOf 244 patients, 104 (42.6%) underwent DXA scanning and among patients in whom T-scores were available (n = 91), 30 (33.0%) had osteoporosis and 48 (52.7%) had osteopenia. Screened patients were more ...

Metal exposure and lifestyle are important risk factors for osteoporosis. Our study aimed to investigate the association between red blood cell lead and cadmium, total urinary arsenic, and plasma selenium levels and bone mineral density (BMD). In addition, we explored whether alcohol and coffee consumption modified the association between BMD and metals and metalloids. In total, 437 participants who underwent adult or senile physical examinations were recruited. Bone loss was defined as a calcaneus BMD T-score of 57.58 versus 35.74 μg/dL were 1.98 and 1.17–3.34. In addition, the greater the lead or arsenic exposur...
