OBJECTIVE To identify biochemical predictors of spinal bone mineral growth and the development of spinal osteoporosis in children with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) treated with glucocorticoids. METHODS Bone mass measurements were made at 3 monthly intervals for one year in 31 children. At each visit, blood and urine were obtained for assessment of laboratory indices related to the acute phase response and bone remodelling rates. Assessments were also made of joint inflammation (simple… CONTINUE READING
