Long-term effects of symptomatic vs intensive bisphosphonate therapy for Paget's disease of bone: the PRISM-EZ study

Goodman Kirsteen , MacLennan Graeme , Fraser William , Selby Peter , Ralston Stuart

Paget’s disease of bone (PDB) is a common metabolic bone disease characterised by increased and disorganised bone remodelling affecting one or more skeletal sites. Bisphosphonates are highly effective at suppressing bone turnover in PDB but it remains unclear whether greater suppression of bone turnover improves clinical outcome. In the PRISM study, we previously reported that PDB patients randomised to ‘intensive’ treatment aimed at normalising alkaline phospha...

Distinct relationships of intramuscular and subcutaneous fat with cortical bone: findings from a cross sectional study of young adult males and females

Deere Kevin , Sayers Adrian , Viljakainen Heli , Lawlor Debbie , Sattar Naveed , Kemp John , Fraser William , Tobias Jon

Introduction: Intracellular fat within muscle and visceral tissue has been suggested to adversely influence bone development.Design: We aimed to compare associations between intramuscular and subcutaneous fat and cortical bone outcomes in young adults, in cross-sectional analyses based on the Avon Longitudinal Study of Parents and Children.Method: Data were collected from a research clinic conducted at 17 years of age. Intramuscula...

Detection of autoantibodies to osteoprotegerin in patients with rheumatoid arthritis and their association with disease activity

Hauser Barbara , Riches Philip , Gilchrist Tamara , Wilson Jim F , Fraser William D , Ralston Stuart H

Introduction: Osteoporosis and fragility fractures are recognized complications of rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Previously Riches et al. described a patient with celiac disease and severe osteoporosis in whom neutralizing antibodies to osteoprotegerin (OPG) were present. The aim of this study was to determine if OPG autoantibodies were present in patients with RA and other rheumatic diseases and to relate these to clinical features.Methods: We dev...

Evaluation of fibroblast growth factor 23 in patients with hypophosphataemic rickets

Park Julie , Khan Kursheed , Hatchard Lynne , Ramakrishnan Renuka , Senniappan Senthil , Fraser William , Dharmaraj Poonam

Objective: Hypophosphataemic rickets (HPR) is associated with high concentrations of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23). Chronically elevated FGF23 may impact on cardiac function and the skeleton. There is little evidence on how FGF23 changes with time in HPR or how it is affected by treatment. The aim of this study was to evaluate changes in FGF23 concentrations over time in patients with HPR.Methods: Retrospective data was collected from our Metabolic...

FGF23 and vitamin D metabolism in chronic kidney disease – mineral bone disorder

Piec Isabelle , Chipchase Allison , Nicholls Holly , Washbourne Christopher , Tang Jonathan , Fraser William D.

Fibroblast growth factor-23 (FGF23) is a major regulator of phosphate metabolism often elevated in genetic hypophosphataemic disorders and in chronic kidney disease–bone mineral disorder (CKD–BMD). Recent studies have identified relationships between FGF23 and vitamin D.Objectives: To determine the relationship between vitamin D and FGF23 metabolism in CKD.Method: We used randomized samples from patient...

Profiles of 25 hydroxyvitamin D and its metabolites 24, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D and 1, 25-dihydroxyvitamin D in vitamin D3 supplementation studies

Tang Jonathan , Nicholls Holly , Dutton John , Piec Isabelle , Washbourne Christopher , Saleh L , Novak A , Close G , Macdonald H , Jackson S , Greeves J , Fraser William

Background: Vitamin D plays an important role in calcium and phosphate homeostasis. Circulating 25 hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)D] is metabolised into its biologically active form 1,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [1,25-d(OH)D] by the actions of 1α hydroxylase, and into inactive 2metabolite 24,25-dihydroxyvitamin D [24,25-d(OH)D] by 24-hydroxylase. Recent studies suggest the production of 1,25-d(OH)D) from 25(OH)D is 24,25-d(OH)D dependent. Genetic mutations of CYP24A1 gene resulting in...
