ba0003pp355 | Osteoporosis: treatment | ECTS2014

Continuous modelling-based bone formation could explain sustained increases in hip bone mineral density with denosumab treatment

In clinical studies, denosumab (DMAb) administration up to 8 years is associated with continued increases in bone mineral density (BMD) and low fracture incidence despite persistently low bone turnover markers and limited iliac crest tetracycline labelling (Papapoulos 2013). We tested the hypothesis that, with persistently low bone remodelling, BMD increases may result from a non-remodelling dependent mechanism to accrue bone matrix. We examined the fluorochrome labelling patt...

Wnt signaling is a major regulator of bone metabolism. We recently reported that mutations in WNT1 gene in humans cause early onset osteoporosis and severe osteogenesis imperfecta. To identify the cellular source and the mechanisms causing these severe phenotypes we generated and analyzed global and conditional Wnt1 knockout mice.Heterozygous Wnt1+/− mice were viable and fertile but Wnt1−/− embryos were lost in ute...
