Denosumab (DMAb) has a unique profile of bone resorption inhibition: CTX decreases rapidly by 3 days and inhibition is released at the end of the 6-month dosing interval, when DMAb serum levels decrease (McClung NEJM 2006). The dynamic CTX inhibition profile is not curtailed by continued treatment. In the 3-year FREEDOM study, CTX values at 6 months were influenced by baseline CTX values and days since the 1st injection (Eastell JBMR 2011). With 3 additional ...

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...
