We assessed the effects on bone remodeling and histomorphometry after daily subcutaneous injections of teriparatide (n = 39, 20 microg/d) or oral strontium ranelate (SrR, n = 40, 2 g/d) in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. Evaluable biopsies were obtained from 29 patients in the teriparatide group and 22 in the SrR group after 6 mo of treatment. The(More)
The periosteum contains osteogenic cells that regulate the outer shape of bone and contribute to determine its cortical thickness, size and position. We assessed the effects of subcutaneous injections of teriparatide (TPTD, 20μg/day) or oral strontium ranelate (SrR, 2g/day) in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis on new bone formation activity at the(More)
