The goal of this study is to: 1. Analyze the expression levels of circulating (serum) miRNAs in primary hyperparathyroidism patients with and without osteoporosis, and patients with osteoporosis undergoing thyroidectomy, and to correlate with clinical markers of bone remodeling including biochemical and radiologic studies. 2. To evaluate serum miRNA levels after treatment with parathyroidectomy.
Clinical trial to assess the effectiveness of the supplement Colaren® associated with zoledronic acid 4mg/annually in the treatment of osteoporosis secondary, compared to standard treatment plus zoledronic acid 4mg/annually. The standard treatment will include 1gr of calcium/day and vitamin D supplement. In both cases, vitamin D levels will be determinated, which should remain at more than 30 ng/mL. Including men with osteoporosis secondary to HIV and men with osteoporosis secondary to any other cause (HIV negative). Vitamin D levels, bone densitometry and markers of metabolism, bone formation and bone resorption will be assessment. The all parameters above will be assessed basally (before the start of treatment), after starting the treatment, an assessment will be made at 12 weeks where vitamin D levels and bone markers will be measured. Meanwhile, at week 24 assess only vitamin D levels; and finally, at week 52 all parameters mentioned above will be measured.
The two specific aims of the study were to determine whether: 1. Greater mechanical loading of downhill exercise will increase the osteogenic index (ratio between CICP, the marker of bone formation (c-terminal propeptide of type I collagen, and CTX, the marker of bone resorption (c terminal telopeptide of type I collagen)) to a greater extent than uphill exercise that provides lower ground-reaction force; 2. Exercise after the meals will induce greater osteogenic response than exercise pefore the meals as it is known that meal eating during daytime inhibits bvone resorption markers.
Bullous pemphigoid is the most common type of bullous skin disease and is clinically characterized by clear-tense bullae, which result in post-bullous cutaneous erosions, altering the skin barrier. The treatment of this pathology consists of the application of high doses of topical corticosteroids (clobetasol propionate) for a prolonged period of at least 6 months. The main objective of this study is to demonstrate a change in bone mineral density at 6 months after initiation of treatment, in subjects with bullous pemphigoid and treated with topical corticosteroid.
This phase II trial studies the side effects of denosumab and to see how well it works in treating patients with bone loss who have received a donor stem cell transplant. Patients receiving a donor stem cell transplant may experience accelerated bone loss and an increase risk of bone fractures, leading to a decrease in satisfaction and quality of life. A type of immunotherapy drug called denosumab binds to a protein called RANKL, which may help keep bone from breaking down.
CMAB807 is a human monoclonal antibody targeting the key bone resorption mediator RANKL. The drug is administered via subcutaneous injection once six months and is approved for various indications, including the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at increased/high risk of fracture. This phase 1 clincical study investigates the pharmacokinetics, safety and immnogenicity of CMAB807,compared to prolia®, in healthy Chinese male subjects.
This study is a randomized (1:1) placebo-controlled trial of a single infusion of zoledronic acid-5 mg (ZA) for the prevention of fractures in men and women aged 65 years and older with Parkinson's Disease with 2 years of follow-up. A total of 3500 participants will be enrolled and randomized in the United States. Participants, follow-up outcome assessors, and study investigators will be blinded to assigned study treatment. This trial is funded by the National Institute of Aging.
Main Study Up to 100 subjects, both non-CF volunteers and Cystic Fibrosis (CF) patients, will participate in a single study visit that will include a DEXA scan, micro CT, and blood collection. Denosumab (Prolia) Sub study Approximately 50 adult subjects with CF who participated in the main study and have results indicating bone disease will receive treatment with Denosumab for up to 5 years. They will be asked to return annually for repeat DEXA scans, micro CT, and blood collection.
There is a management gap in China. This study aims to establish a tiered management system of osteoporosis for Chinese patients. Including: 1. Developing a national hierarchical health management network platform for middle-aged and elderly osteoporosis patients. With this platform, the data of medical records, laboratory results would be shared between medical institutions. And primary hospitals can refer the patients to the nearest medical centre for advanced auxiliary examinations and diagnosis. 2. Establishing a muti-level hospital collaboration, doctor-patient interaction management model of osteoporosis. 3. To explore and establish a early warning and screening pathways for osteoporosis.
We investigated the effects of whole body vibration (WBV) and high-impact (HI) exercises in postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density. In summary, WBV exercises are effective in preventing bone loss and WBV and HI exercise programs are effective in decreasing fall risk, increasing health-related quality of life and improving depressive symptoms
