This randomized, double-blind study assessed the antifracture efficacy and safety of intermittent intravenous (IV) ibandronate versus oral daily risedronate in Japanese patients with primary osteoporosis. Ambulatory patients aged ≥60 years were randomized to receive 0.5 or 1 mg/month IV ibandronate plus oral daily placebo or 2.5 mg/day oral risedronate, the(More)
CONTEXT Denosumab 60 mg sc injection every 6 months for 36 months was well tolerated and effective in reducing the incidence of vertebral, nonvertebral, and hip fracture in predominantly Caucasian postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. OBJECTIVE The objective of this phase 3 fracture study was to examine the antifracture efficacy and safety of denosumab(More)
BACKGROUND We conducted the present study to investigate the therapeutic effects of a combination treatment of alfacalcidol (ALF) and risedronate (RIS) on the bone mechanical properties of bone and calcium (Ca) metabolism using an ovariectomized (OVX) rat model of osteoporosis. METHODS Female Wistar rats were OVX- or sham-operated at 40 weeks of age.(More)
The effects of an active vitamin D analog, eldecalcitol (ELD), on bone mineral density (BMD), bone geometry, and biomechanical properties of the proximal femur were investigated by using clinical CT. The subjects--a subgroup of a recent randomized, double-blind study comparing anti-fracture efficacy of ELD with alfacalcidol (ALF) - constituted 193(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the stationary characteristics of electroencephalogram (EEG) envelopes for prematurely born (preterm) infants and investigate the intrinsic characteristics of early brain development in preterm infants. METHODS Twenty neurologically normal sets of EEGs recorded in infants with a post-conceptional age (PCA) range of 26-44 weeks (mean(More)
We report the occurrence of neuronal cytoplasmic inclusions (NCIs) in the external cuneate nucleus of humans. The NCIs appeared as accumulations of eosinophilic rod-like structures in the neuronal somata in 20 (9.5%) of 211 consecutive autopsy cases. Histochemically, the NCIs were stained bright red with Gomori trichrome, Azan-Mallory and methyl(More)
