Conclusion: Compared to no treatment, Teriparatide was indicated to be more costly and associated with fewer fractures, more life-years, and more QALYs. The result showed that Teriparatide may be considered a cost-effective intervention when targeted to the appropriate patients.
Authors: Ding L, Liu C, Zhou Q, Feng M, Wang J Abstract The associations between human papillomavirus (HPV) infection or hormonal exposure and cervical cancer risk are well established. However, to the best of our knowledge, the association between high endogenous estradiol levels in conjunction with HPV/HPV16 infection and the risk of cervical squamous cell carcinoma remains unknown. To investigate this, the current study conducted a matched case-control study in Shanxi Province, China, in which clinical samples were obtained from 74 females with newly diagnosed uterine cervix squamous cell carcinoma and 74 matche...
Osteoporosis is prevalent among lung transplant candidates and is exacerbated post-transplant by immunosuppressive therapy (glucocorticoids and calcineurin inhibitors). Osteoporotic fractures are a significant source of morbidity. Low bone mineral density (BMD) is a well-recognised surrogate for fracture risk. Intravenous zoledronic acid (ZA) effectively prevents the former and reduces the latter in post-menopausal osteoporosis. Many groups, ours included, prophylactically treat lung transplant recipients with bisphosphonates to prevent BMD reduction and reduce fracture rates.
Conclusions: Data are related to a small sample retrospectively assessed trough a 6-month observation period. Thus, the preliminary results need further research to be confirmed. PMID: 30858637 [PubMed - in process]

This study was designed to evaluate the relationship between urinary phytate concentration and risk of fracture at 10 years, determined by using the FRAX model, in women who had undergone menopause within 5 years of the time of enrollment. Materials and methods: Of the 212 postmenopausal women evaluated, 69 were excluded because they had urinary phytate concentrations between 0.51 and 0.99 mg/L. Of the remaining 143 women, 91 had low (≤0.50 mg/L) and 52 had high (≥1.0 mg/L) urinary phytate concentrations. The 10-year risk of fracture was calculated by using the FRAX model. Results: The risks of major osteopor...

Abstract With declining mortality rates, the number of breast cancer survivors is increasing. Ongoing care after breast cancer treatment is often provided by primary care physicians. This care includes surveillance for cancer recurrence with a history and physical examination every three to six months for the first three years after treatment, every six to 12 months for two more years, and annually thereafter. Mammography is performed annually. Magnetic resonance imaging of the breast is not indicated unless patients are at high risk of recurrence, such as having a hereditary cancer syndrome. Many breast cancer su...
