Suppression of Bone Resorption in Early Postmenopausal Women by Intranasal Salmon Calcitonin in Relation to Dosage and Basal Bone Turnover

Abstract

In the present study, we assessed the ability of increasing doses of intranasal calcitonin to suppress urinary deoxypyridinoline cross-link (DPD), a specific biochemical marker of bone resorption, in early postmenopausal women. Subjects consisted of 30 healthy Thai women within 5 years of postmenopause, randomly assigned to 50, 100, or 200 IU of intranasal… (More)
