The relationship between BMD T-score and FX risk has not been established in patients receiving osteoporosis therapy. In the FREEDOM Extension study, continuous DMAb therapy for up to 10 years increased BMD levels with no therapeutic plateau at lumbar spine or TH [Bone et al, ASBMR 2015]. Such improvements would only be meaningful if associated with FX reductions. We investigated the relationship between TH BMD T-score and NVFX in women who received DMAb during FREEDOM and tho...

Denosumab (DMAb) has a unique profile of bone resorption inhibition: CTX decreases rapidly by 3 days and inhibition is released at the end of the 6-month dosing interval, when DMAb serum levels decrease (McClung NEJM 2006). The dynamic CTX inhibition profile is not curtailed by continued treatment. In the 3-year FREEDOM study, CTX values at 6 months were influenced by baseline CTX values and days since the 1st injection (Eastell JBMR 2011). With 3 additional ...
