OBJECTIVE To analyse the interest of baseline levels and short-term (3-months) changes in serum osteocalcin (BGP), serum bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BALP) and urinary C-telopeptide of type I collagen/creatinine ratio (U-CTX) to predict 3-years changes in bone mineral density (BMD) and spinal deformity index (SDI) in postmenopausal osteoporotic women. METHODS Data were derived from a cohort of 603 osteoporotic women corresponding to the placebo arm of a 3-years prospective, double… CONTINUE READING
