Mortality risk associated with low-trauma osteoporotic fracture and subsequent fracture in men and women.
CONTEXT There are few data on long-term mortality following osteoporotic fracture and fewer following subsequent fracture. OBJECTIVES To examine long-term mortality risk in women and men followingExpand

A regulatory domain (R1-R2) in the amino terminus of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor: effects of spermine, protons, and ifenprodil, and structural similarity to bacterial leucine/isoleucine/valine
There are complex interactions between spermine, protons, and ifenprodil at N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors. Spermine stimulation may involve relief of proton inhibition, whereas ifenprodil inhibitionExpand

Development of prognostic nomograms for individualizing 5-year and 10-year fracture risks
SummaryWe have developed clinical nomograms for predicting 5-year and 10-year fracture risks for any elderly man or woman. The nomograms used age and information concerning fracture history, fallExpand

Identification of High‐Risk Individuals for Hip Fracture: A 14‐Year Prospective Study
In this 14‐year prospective study, men and women were found to share a common set of risk factors for hip fracture: low BMD, postural instability and/or quadriceps weakness, a history of falls, andExpand

Compound risk of high mortality following osteoporotic fracture and refracture in elderly women and men
After fracture there is increased risk of refracture and premature mortality. These outcomes, particularly premature mortality following refracture, have not previously been studied together toExpand

The selectivity filter of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor: a tryptophan residue controls block and permeation of Mg2+.
A hallmark feature of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptors is their voltage-dependent block by extracellular Mg2+. The structural basis for Mg2+ block is not fully understood. Although asparagineExpand

Contributions of lean mass and fat mass to bone mineral density: a study in postmenopausal women
BackgroundThe relative contribution of lean and fat to the determination of bone mineral density (BMD) in postmenopausal women is a contentious issue. The present study was undertaken to test theExpand

Independent external validation of nomograms for predicting risk of low-trauma fracture and hip fracture
Background A set of nomograms based on the Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study predicts the five- and ten-year absolute risk of fracture using age, bone mineral density and history of falls andExpand

Vitamin D status and parathyroid hormone in a urban population in Vietnam
SummaryIn this cross-sectional study in Vietnam, the prevalence of vitamin D insufficiency was 46% in adult women and 20% in adult men. There was a linear inverse relationship between serum 25(OH)DExpand

Residual Lifetime Risk of Fractures in Women and Men
In a sample of 1358 women and 858 men, ≥60 yr of age who have been followed‐up for up to 15 yr, it was estimated that the mortality‐adjusted residual lifetime risk of fracture was 44% for women andExpand
