ASBMR 2017 COVERAGE

ASBMR 2017 Romosozumab Plus Alendronate Reduces Fracture Risk in Postmenopausal Osteoporosis

Romosozumab Plus Alendronate Reduces Fracture Risk in Postmenopausal Osteoporosis

Risk of new vertebral fracture was reduced among women int he romosozumab-to-alendronate group vs those who took alendronate alone.

ASBMR 2017 BMD and Physical Activity: Examining the Relationship in Class III Obesity

BMD and Physical Activity: Examining the Relationship in Class III Obesity

Both intensity of physical activity and time spent active can explain variability in femoral neck BMD in people with class III obesity.

ASBMR 2017 New Bone Density Assessment Effectively Predicts Fracture Risk in Children

New Bone Density Assessment Effectively Predicts Fracture Risk in Children

A femoral stress index assessment evaluates fracture risk in children as effectively as femoral and total body bone mineral density.

ASBMR 2017 Safety, Efficacy of Burosumab vs Placebo for X-Linked Hypophosphatemia Examined

Safety, Efficacy of Burosumab vs Placebo for X-Linked Hypophosphatemia Examined

In a double-blind multicenter study, researchers examined the safety and efficacy of burosumab for X-linked hypophosphatemia.

ASBMR 2017 Cardiovascular Event Risks With Zoledronic Acid vs Oral Bisphosphonates

Cardiovascular Event Risks With Zoledronic Acid vs Oral Bisphosphonates

Patients treated with zoledronic acid vs oral bisphosphonates had higher risk for heart failure and arrhythmias.

ASBMR 2017 Efficacy of Off-Label Bisphosphonate Use for Edema in Bone Marrow Lesions

Efficacy of Off-Label Bisphosphonate Use for Edema in Bone Marrow Lesions

More than 75% of patients in the treatment group experienced a decrease in bone marrow edema.

ASBMR 2017 Can Anxiety or Depression Determine Low BMD in Patients With Anorexia?

Can Anxiety or Depression Determine Low BMD in Patients With Anorexia?

Both anxiety and depression scores are associated with low BMD.

ASBMR 2017 Protective Effect of Hypoxia on Bone Health in Menopausal Women

Protective Effect of Hypoxia on Bone Health in Menopausal Women

Intermittent hypoxia in obstructive sleep apnea was found to decrease the chances of bone health decline in menopausal women.

ASBMR 2017 Impaired Vascular Dysfunction in Primary Hyperparathyroidism May Impact Cognition

Impaired Vascular Dysfunction in Primary Hyperparathyroidism May Impact Cognition

It has been previously reported that parathyroidectomy can reverse cognitive dysfunction associated with primary hyperparathyroidism.
