Once-weekly teriparatide increases bone mineral density in the distal 1/10 radius, but not in the distal 1/3 radius


Teriparatide significantly increases bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar vertebrae and femur and has a strong effect in reducing the risk of bone fractures. However, few detailed investigations with dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) of the effects of teriparatide on the radius have been reported; specifically, there are no reports of the use of… (More)
