Relatively little is known about immediate consequences of continuing vs interrupting long-term bisphosphonate treatment. This report describes changes in bone turnover and BMD in a 1-year, dose-finding trial of the calcium-sensing receptor antagonist MK-5442 in postmenopausal, BP-treated women, randomized to continued alendronate 70 mg weekly, switch to placebo, or switch to MK-5442. Recruited women (n=526) had taken alendronate for ≥12 months and an oral BP fo...

Odanacatib (ODN), a selective oral inhibitor of cathepsin K, is in development for the treatment of osteoporosis. In the primary efficacy analysis of the Phase 3, Long-Term ODN Fracture Trial (LOFT; NCT00529373), ODN significantly reduced fracture risk compared with placebo in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Pre-specified subgroup analyses evaluated the efficacy of ODN in patient subgroups.Women aged ≥65 years, without baseline radiographic...

Patients with improved health understanding have greater autonomy over, and motivation towards, health-related lifestyles. We compared self-perceived fracture risk and 3-year incident fracture rates in postmenopausal women for a range of co-morbid diseases using data from the Global Longitudinal study of Osteoporosis in Women (GLOW).GLOW is an international cohort study involving 723 physician practices across 10 countries in Europe, North America, Austr...
