Large amounts of experimental and animal evidence have confirmed that iron accumulation is associated with bone loss. However, it is still lack of the clinical studies relating iron accumulation to bone loss, especially in the pathological conditions during our Chinese. In this study, the investigators aim to assess the association between the levels of serum ferritin and bone mineral density in Chinese healthy postmenopausal women.
A phase 1 clinical trail to evaluate the safety and pharmacokinetic characteristic after administration of fixed-dose combination or loose combination of HUG186 in healthy adult male or menopausal female volunteers
The aim of this study is the quantitative determination of bone-specific microRNAs in the serum of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis during antiresorptive or osteoanabolic therapy.
Compare the data obtained with two formulations of alendronate 70 mg (tablets vs effervescent tablet for buffered solution) on the change in bone turnover markers, on gastric tolerance and on treatment adherence (including compliance and persistence).
To evaluate the noninferiority of a 6-month treatment with 210 mg romosozumab at 90 mg/mL administered subcutaneously (SC) once a month (QM) in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis either by healthcare provider (HCP) administration with prefilled syringe (PFS) or by subject self-administration with autoinjector/pen (AI/Pen)
The main scope of the present pilot study is to evaluate the possible association between the status of sarcopenia and the risk of fall in osteoporotic postmenopausal women. Forty osteoporotic postmenopausal women, previously (pre-recruitment) classified by DXA in 20 sarcopenic and 20 non-sarcopenic subjects, will be recruited. The investigators will collect data on: 1) bone (vitamin D) and muscle (myokines) metabolisms through blood sampling; 2) Risk of fall by the OAK device produced by Khymeia; 3) thigh muscle quality through MR.
Introduction: In Brazil, a person who is sixty years old or more is considered elderly. The incidence of osteoporosis and osteopenia has been increasing, as have fractures resulting from falls. Vitamin D deficiency can cause muscular atrophy in type II fibers (fast contraction and strength), which can increase the risk of falls. The aging process produces reduction in the ability of postural control system to maintain postural balance, which may increase postural instability and consequently increase the elderly risk to falls. Objective: To evaluate if vitamin D supplementation associated with regular exercise in vulnerable older women improves muscle strength and postural balance in 12 weeks. Methods: This will be a randomized prospective clinical trial, double blind, placebo-controlled intervention. Will be part of the study 40 elderly women vulnerable, who meet the inclusion criteria and that will be coming from the community through calls made by radio and social network. The volunteer will undergoing to blood test, body composition and bone mineral density, Mini Mental State Examination, Geriatric Depressive Scale, Falls Efficacy Scale, WHOQOL-OLD and WHOQOL-BREF instruments, functional capacity tests (MiniBEST, Time up and Go, Chair Rising Test, Six-minute walk test), muscular strength assessment (isokinetic dynamometry, handgrip and 1RM test) and postural balance (AccSway force platform for static postural balance and NeuroCom's Balance Master for dynamic postural balance) before and after 12 weeks of intervention with vitamin D supplementation and resistance and postural balance exercise. The intervention that will be perform during the 12 weeks with a progressive resistance training program.
The process of bone remodeling exhibits pronounced diurnal pattern that is important for bone health. A balanced rate of bone resorption is required to maintain bone health, a balance that can be disturbed during the lifecycle to effect net rate of formation (as occurs during growth and development to adulthood) or net resorption (as occurs, for example, during the menopause).The research to be undertaken investigates the pluripotent effect of dairy-based products on the regulation of the diurnal process of bone metabolism in post-menopausal women at risk of osteoporosis.
Osteoporosis is a common disease that makes the bones fragile and easy to break. Osteoporotic fractures are a serious health problem resulting in pain, reduced mobility, increasing degree of dependence and sometimes death. Osteoporosis is currently diagnosed by measuring bone density at the hip/spine through an exam called DXA. Although all post-menopausal women are at higher risk, currently Italian national guidelines do not recommend population-screening programs. This leads to several cases not being identified before a fracture occurs. Since dental panoramic radiographs (OPGs) are common procedures during dental check-ups or before dental treatments, it would be of great value if dentists could use them to identify people with unknown osteoporosis and early refer them to a specialist before they fracture. This study aims to test if it is meaningful to use OPGs to screen for post-menopausal osteoporosis. In particular, it will inform on how many undiagnosed osteoporotic women attend a Dental Hospital, how willing they are to have a DXA scan after a dental appointment and how precise the OPGs are as screening tools. 124 post-menopausal women will be recruited, which will undergo an OPG and a DXA scan to check their bone density.
Clinical trial to investigate effect of voluntary upper extremity loading in combination with anabolic osteoporosis therapy.
