Bone densitometry has become a major tool for osteoporosis risk assessment. The traditional dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) methods are able to evaluate the bone mineral content (BMC; mg/cm) and the areal density (BMD; mg/cm2), but only quantitative computed tomography (QCT) has the potential to measure the true volumetric bone density in the sense(More)
Alendronate sodium (ALN) is a potent amino bisphosphonate which specifically inhibits osteoclastic bone resorption and has been found to reverse bone loss in several animal models. To determine if daily oral ALN treatment could prevent or reverse bone loss in osteoporotic postmenopausal women, and to compare ALN to intranasal salmon calcitonin (CT), a(More)
Treatment with gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH) agonist leads to enhanced bone turnover and accelerated bone loss in premenopausal women with endometriosis, uterine leiomyomatomas and hirsutism. Sodium etidronate is a powerful inhibitor of bone resorption which has been proven efficacious in the prevention and treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis.(More)
