Improved survival of patients with prostate and breast cancer has come at a cost. Clinicians need to be vigilant with preventive care for patients with these cancers to maintain their dental and bone health.
Recommendations are presented for the management of bone health in survivors of childhood cancer.
More than a quarter of postmenopausal women and men ≥50 years of age were found to have osteoporosis a decade after undergoing Roux-en-Y gastric bypass surgery.
Older women with significant abdominal aortic calcification are more likely to experience incident clinical fractures.
Barriers to pharmacotherapy for osteoporosis warrant further investigation in order to reduce the elevated mortality and morbidity rates associated with the disease.
The study identified biomarkers for changes in bone mineral density at three anatomic sites in patients with osteoporosis secondary to RA.
High social stress was associated with decreased bone mineral density over 6 years of follow-up.
Researchers used real-world data to compare changes in BMD after switching to teriparatide vs denosumab in patients with prior long-term bisphosphonate treatment.
The FRAX calculations showed higher probabilities of major osteoporotic fracture in patients with knee osteoarthritis vs healthy controls.
A new measure derived from conventional X-rays and a machine learning algorithm is effective for assessing bone-specific effects of osteoporosis treatment.
