RESULTS

Found (18) clinical trials

Postmenopausal Osteoporosis is the medical term used for the disease that weakens bones in women, increasing the risk of sudden and unexpected fractures. Literally meaning "porous bone," osteoporosis results in an increased loss of bone mass and strength. The disease often progresses without any symptoms or pain. Many times, osteoporosis ...

Phase N/A

Peri-implant Bone Changes in Post-menopausal Osteoporotic Women

This is a prospective case series study aiming to radiographically assess the changes in alveolar bone width and height after the placement of a SLActive implant (implant with a modified surface that should stimulate bone formation) and 12 months after loading it in post-menopausal osteoporotic women. The null hypothesis is: ...

A clinical trial seeking patients for a research study for the treatment of Gastrojejunostomy, Gastric stapling, Fracture, Perimenopause, Sleeve Gastrectomy, Menopause, Premenopause, Osteoporosis

While highly effective both RYGB and SG may lead to increased bone resorption, decreased bone mass, and increased risk of some fractures. Very few studies have compared the effects of the RYGB and the SG on changes skeletal health and findings have been inconsistent. Furthermore, few studies have investigated the ...

Phase N/A

Zoledronic Acid for Osteoporotic Fracture Prevention (ZEST II)

Although close to 85% of frail women in long-term care (LTC) facilities have osteoporosis and the risk of osteoporotic fractures is nearly 10 times that of community dwelling elderly, few are treated and studies are scarce. It is postulated that in frail, LTC women an annual infusion of zoledronic acid, ...

MiDeTe - microRNA Levels Under Denosumab and Teriparatide Therapy in Postmenopausal Osteoporosis

Primarily the influence of the therapeutic treatment on the microRNA concentration in the serum (treatment-response) and the relation between microRNA serum levels and changes of the bone mineral density will be investigated. These data will help to examine the use of microRNAs as novel diagnostic biomarkers for the diagnosis of ...

Prostate Adenocarcinoma TransCutaneous Hormones

OBJECTIVES Primary Compare the progression-free survival and overall survival of patients with locally advanced or metastatic prostate cancer treated with transcutaneous estrogen patches vs luteinizing hormone-releasing hormone analogues. Secondary Compare the cardiovascular system-related morbidity and mortality in patients treated with these regimens Compare the activity of these treatments, in terms ...

Phase

The Effect of High Impact Exercise on Bone and Articular Cartilage in Post-menopausal Women

The research is a 6 month, intervention study of unilateral (single limb) exercise with the changes in a randomly chosen exercise leg being compared to those in the other (control) leg. Potential participants (women aged 55-70) will be approached via existing links in the community, at local community centres, through ...

Phase N/A

Effect of VSL#3 on Bone Mineral Density in Postmenopausal Women

Osteoporosis has a devastating impact on quality of life of postmenopausal women, and is a significant cause of disability and morbidity. Many drugs are approved for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis, but are associated with high costs and side effects. Some data from animal studies suggests that supplementation with ...

Phase

Preventing Osteoporosis Using Denosumab

Objective The long term goal is to improve health, well-being and quality of life in the frail long-term care (LTC) elderly population by reducing fractures. The short term goal is to demonstrate efficacy of the non-bisphosphonate denosumab to improve bone mineral density (BMD), a necessary (but not sufficient) pre-condition of ...

This study are divided in two parts : Cross sectional cohort with both comparison between : Cushing syndrome versus control and cushing syndrome versus post-menopausal women Outcomes : Primary outcomes : Analysis thanks to pQCT will be carried out in order to compare radius and tibia bone mineral volume (total, ...
