This multicenter study assessed the safety and efficacy of teriparatide 20 microg/day in Japanese men and women with osteoporosis at high risk of fracture during a 12-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled treatment period followed by second and third treatment periods (to 18 and 24 months, respectively,) in which all subjects received(More)
Biochemical markers of bone turnover may be useful aids for managing patients with osteoporosis. A 12-month, phase 3, multicenter trial of Japanese patients at high risk of fracture was conducted to assess the effects of teriparatide 20 μg/day on BMD, serum markers of bone turnover, and safety. Two-hundred and seven subjects (93% female; median age 70(More)
The dose-response efficacy and safety with three doses of teriparatide and placebo was assessed, using oncedaily subcutaneous injections for 24 weeks, in Japanese postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at high risk of fracture for reasons of preexisting fracture(s), advanced age, and/or low bone mineral density (BMD). In this multicenter, randomized,(More)
Teriparatide is an anabolic therapy for osteoporosis approved in the United States since 2002 and European Union since 2003; however, approval in Japan lagged significantly. This report describes analyses based on International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E-5 guidelines that support bridging between Japanese studies and the large Fracture Prevention(More)
In the global Fracture Prevention Trial, teriparatide reduced the risk of vertebral and non-vertebral fractures and significantly increased BMD. Recently, a 12-month, phase 3, randomized, multicenter, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial with BMD as a primary endpoint was conducted to assess the effects of teriparatide in Japanese subjects at high risk of(More)
OBJECTIVE Serum procollagen type I N-terminal propeptide (PINP), a representative marker of bone anabolic action, is strongly related to bone mineral density during teriparatide therapy. This post hoc study analyzed data from a Phase III study (ClinicalTrials.gov identifier NCT00433160) to determine if there was an association between serum PINP elevation(More)
In this previously reported multicenter study, teriparatide 20 μg/day was administered to elderly Japanese subjects (93 % female; median age 70 years) with osteoporosis and at high risk of fracture during a 12-month, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled period, which was followed by a 12 month treatment period in which all subjects received(More)
OBJECTIVE New quinolones (NQs) are widely used to treat various infections. However, concomitant oral administration of metal cations may decrease absorption of NQs and consequently decrease their blood concentration and pharmacological effect. A convenient approach to avoid this interaction is to separate the dosages by a certain interval. In this study,(More)
The aim of this study was to verify an approach for calculating pharmacokinetic parameters suitable for adjusting dosage regimens in patients with renal dysfunction. We carried out a retrospective analysis of the pharmacokinetic profiles of 12 new quinolone antibiotics and 11 angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors (ACEIs) in patients with normal and(More)
OBJECTIVE Itraconazole is a potent inhibitor of cytochrome P450 (CYP) 3A with an elimination half-life of more than 30 hours. Therefore, itraconazole may cause persistent CYP3A inhibition. Triazolam is primarily metabolized by CYP3A and its plasma concentration is increased remarkably by itraconazole. Although separating their dosages by 24 hours has been(More)
