Effects of strontium ranelate on the bone-like mineralized matrix produced in osteoblast cell cultures

Querido William , Campos Andrea , Ferreira Erlon Martins , Gil Rosane San , Rossi Alexandre , Farina Marcos

Strontium ranelate is a promising drug used in the treatment of osteoporosis. This drug has a unique dual effect on bone turnover, simultaneously increasing bone formation by osteoblasts (anabolic effect) and decreasing bone resorption by osteoclasts (antiresorptive effect). The goal of this study was to evaluate: i) anabolic effects of strontium ranelate on the formation of bone-like mineralized matrix in osteoblast cell cultures and ii) changes the drug could cause on the ma...

Impaired mobility and pain significantly impact the quality of life of children with X-linked hypophosphatemia

Linglart Agnes , Dvorak-Ewell Melita , Marshall Ayla , Martin Javier San , Skrinar Alison

X-linked Hypophosphatemia (XLH), the most common heritable form of rickets, is a disorder of renal phosphate wasting caused by high circulating levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23) that impairs normal phosphate reabsorption in the kidney and production of the active form of vitamin D. Affected children present with hypophosphatemia resulting in rickets, bowing of the legs and short stature. Limited information is available about the disease burden in children with XLH...

Growth curves for children with X-linked hypophosphatemia

Mao Meng , Carpenter Thomas , Whyte Michael , Skrinar Alison , Chen Chao-Yin , Martin Javier San , Rogol Alan

Objective: We constructed height growth curves for children with XLH from birth to early adolescence, a majority of whom received conventional therapy consisting of multiple daily doses of oral phosphate and active vitamin D.Methods: Growth data from four clinical studies were pooled to construct the growth curves. UX023-CL002 was an observational, retrospective chart review of 103 children with XLH, 1–14 years of age. Pre-treatment data were collec...

Risk factors for the development of chronic back pain after percutaneous vertebroplasty vs conventional treatment

Peris Pilar , Blasco Jordi , Carrasco Josep L , Martinez-Ferrer Angels , Macho Juan , Roman Luis San , Monegal Ana , Guanabens Nuria

In a recent randomized controlled trial comparing vertebroplasty (VP) vs conservative treatment (CT) in patients with symptomatic vertebral fractures (VF) we observed the development of severe chronic back pain (CBP) in nearly one quarter of patients. The aim of this study was to evaluate the risk factors related to the development of CBP in these subjects.Methods: We evaluated risk factors including: visual analog scale (VAS) at baseline and during the ...

KRN23 effects on phosphate and vitamin D dysregulation in children <5 years old with X-Linked Hypophosphatemia (XLH)

Imel Erik , Carpenter Thomas , Gottesman Gary S , Martin Javier San , Mao Meng , Skrinar Alison , Whyte Michael P

Objectives: XLH features renal phosphate (Pi) wasting, hypophosphatemia, rickets, and skeletal deformities from elevated circulating levels of fibroblast growth factor 23 (FGF23). KRN23, an investigational fully human monoclonal antibody, binds FGF23 and inhibits its action. Our Phase 2 study of KRN23 in XLH children (ages 5–12 years) is demonstrating improvements in serum Pi and rickets. Here we present our Phase 2 trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of KRN23 in you...

Comparison of socioeconomic status on bone mass assessed by quantitative ultrasound of the phalanges in girls from 7 to 15 years old

Samur-San Martin Juan Eduardo , de Barros Ramalho Luiz Carlos , Goncalves Ezequiel Moreira , Bertapelli Fabio , Barbeta Vinicius , Krahenbuhl Tathyane , Ribeiro Roberto Regis , Mendes Roberto Teixeira , Guerra-Junior Gil

Several environmental and genetic factors may interfere on bone mass in children. However, the pediatric studies that approach the socioeconomic status and quantitative ultrasound (QUS) parameters are scarce. The aim of this study was to compare the bone mass in girls from 7 to 15 years old of different socioeconomic status. The sample consisted of 860 Brazilian girls (8.95±1.32) of different socioeconomic status. The bone mass parameter, amplitude dependent speed sound (...

Influence of nutritional status in the bone mass assessed by quantitative ultrasonography of boys

de Oliveira Barbeta Vinicius Justino , Bertapelli Fabio , Goncalves Ezequiel Moreira , Krahenbuhl Tathyane , de Barros Ramalho Luiz Carlos , Martin Juan Eduardo Samur-San , Ribeiro Roberto Regis , Guerra-Junior Gil

The childhood is an important period for bone mass acquisition, and this tissue may be influenced by the nutritional status. However, the relation between the nutritional status and the bone parameters of quantitative ultrasound (QUS) remains unclear. The aim of this study was to verify the influence of nutritional status on bone mass assessed by QUS in male children from 7 to 10 years old. The sample consisted of 461 Brazilians pre-pubertal schoolchildren (8.30±1.13 year...

Association between parameters of bone mass measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry and quantitative ultrasound of proximal phalanges in children and adolescents with congenital adrenal hyperplasia

Goncalves Ezequiel M , Barbeta Vinicius J O , Bertapelli Fabio , Krahenbuhl Tathyane , Luiz Carlos B Ramalho , Martin Juan Eduardo Samur-San , Lemos-Marini Sofia H V , Guerra-Junior Gil

The chronic use of glucocorticoids in patients with congenital adrenal hyperplasia (CAH) may result in decreased bone mass. Therefore, using simple and accurate methods for assessing bone status in these patients could facilitate the treatment of disease. The purpose of this study was to verify the association between parameters of bone mass measured by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and quantitative ultrasound (QUS) of proximal phalanges in children adolescents with c...

Impact of age and pubertal development on bone mass assessed by quantitative ultrasound of the proximal phalanges in boys and girls aged 10–14 years

Krahenbuhl Tathyane , Goncalves Ezequiel Moreira , Barbeta Vinicius , Ramalho Luiz Carlos , Martin Juan Samur-San , Bertapelli Fabio , Ribeiro Roberto Regis , Barros-Filho Antonio Azevedo , Guerra-Junior Gil

The quantitative ultrasound (QUS) of the proximal phalanges has been used for the indirect evaluation of bone status. Furthermore, the relative simplicity and non-exposure to radiation, presents advantages for the use of QUS compared to other methods in children and adolescents. The aim of this study was to determine the influence of age and pubertal development on Amplitude Dependent Speed Sound (AD-SoS) assessed by QUS of proximal phalanges in girls and boys aged 10–15 ...
