Authors: Karsdal MA, Henriksen K, Bay-Jensen AC Abstract Osteoarthritis (OA) is a disease of the whole joint, including synovium, bone and cartilage. OA is a slow degenerative and very heterogeneous disease, with both varying levels of disease activity and progression. Biomarkers are urgently needed to assist drug developers in selecting and developing the projects with the highest chance of success. Biomarkers for enrichment of clinical studies, early efficacy as well as other diagnostic tools are needed. Osteoporosis and OA have many similarities. In osteoporosis an armamentarium of treatments are now available w...

This study included 117 consecutive patients with idiopathic BPPV (26 men and 91 women; mean age, 55 ± 11 years; age range, 25 to 78 years) who underwent blood sampling for serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D level measurement and bone mineral densitometry of the anterior-posterior lumbar spine and femur between April 2018 and February 2019. Among 117 patients, 49 were diagnosed with posterior semicircular canal (PSCC) BPPV, 24 were diagnosed with lateral semicircular canal (LSCC) canalolithiasis, and 44 were diagnosed with LSCC cupulolithiasis. The mean T-score of BMD was −1.5 ± 0.9 in PSCC BPPV, &mi...

Publication date: December 2019Source: Biomedicine &Pharmacotherapy, Volume 120Author(s): Tingting Hou, Lirong Zhang, Xiaohong YangAbstractOsteoporosis is a chronic disease whose symptoms include a reduction in bone strength, osteopenia, and damage to the bone microstructure. Ferulic acids are natural polyphenols present in various fruits that suppress the fusion and apoptosis of mature osteoclasts. Rats were divided into sham, control (osteoporosis), 10 mg/kg body weight ferulic acid, 20 mg/kg body weight ferulic acid, and 30 mg/kg body weight ferulic acid treatment groups. Osteoporosis was induced in neonatal b...

In this study, we investigated whether long-term dietary intake of UHHPBR prevents aging-related decline of bone mineral density in elderly Japanese individuals. Elderly participants (n=40; mean 73.1 y) in Iinan-cho, Shimane, Japan, were randomly divided into two groups. The UHHPBR-intake group (n=20) consumed 100 g of UHHPBR and 100 g of white rice (WR) per day for 12 mo, while the WR-intake group (n=20) consumed 200 g of WR per day. Pre- and 12-mo post-intervention, bone mineral density was evaluated by quantitative ultrasound. After 12 mo of intervention, the UHHPBR group's bone mineral density was significantly higher ...

Authors: Kadowaki M, Kubota M, Watanabe R Abstract Although it is considered a staple food, rice intake is under serious debate for its physiological usefulness, especially for diabetic patients, because of starch content. However, rice protein, the second major component of rice, has gained attention recently for its newly-discovered functions, which were previously unknown. Rice protein, a plant protein, shows multiple beneficial functions on lipid metabolism and diabetes and its complications, nephropathy, fatty liver and osteoporosis. Rice proteins of endosperm and bran, an ingredient of white rice and an unuse...

ConclusionsAfter 12  months off-treatment, a second romosozumab course again led to rapid and large BMD gains. Following denosumab, BMD gains with romosozumab were smaller than with initial treatment. No new safety findings were observed during the second course.

ConclusionsAccording to our results, elderly patients who underwent hemiarthroplasty for an osteoporotic hip fracture were not commonly screened or treated for osteoporosis. Our results demonstrated no significant difference between the groups in terms of subsequent fracture. However, we observed a significant high 5-year survival rate among patients who received the osteoporosis treatment.
