Objective: Evidence for further reduction of nonvertebral fracture (NVFX) beyond 3 years of antiresorptive therapy is limited. Since long-term denosumab (DMAb) treatment is associated with continuous increases in BMD and sustained fracture reduction, we analyzed the influence of femoral neck (FN) BMD after 3 years on NVFX rates.Methods: Long-term subjects received 7 continuous years of DMAb; cross-over subjects received 3 years of placebo (FREEDOM) and 4...

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...
