Fluoride therapy for osteoporosis: characterization of the skeletal response by serial measurements of serum alkaline phosphatase activity.

Abstract

Optimum use of fluoride therapy for osteoporosis requires a sensitive and convenient index of the skeletal response to fluoride. Since previous studies had shown that serum alkaline phosphatase activity (SALP) was increased in response to fluoride therapy, we examined serial measurements of SALP in 53 osteoporotics treated with 66 to 110 mg of sodium… (More)
