OBJECTIVE To assess the value of monitoring response to bisphosphonate treatment by means of measuring bone mineral density. DESIGN Secondary analysis of trial data using mixed models. Data source The Fracture Intervention Trial, a randomised controlled trial that compared the effects of alendronate and placebo in 6459 postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density recruited between May 1992 and May 1993. Bone density measurements of hip and spine were obtained at baseline and at one, two… CONTINUE READING
