The Effectiveness of Eldecalcitol in the Bisphosphonate Non-respondered-patients With Osteoporosis

Brief description of study

In the patients with osteoporosis, bisphosphonates (BPs) are a golden standard treatment. However, the bone turnover markers or the bone mineral density (BMD) are not improved in some osteoporotic patients even though they have taken BPs and alfacalcidol more than several years. In those case, the investigators better off prescribing BPs and Eldecalcitol, instead of BPs and Alfacalcitol.

Detailed Study Description

Alfacalcitol and Eldecalcitol are the similar vitamin D drugs. However, Eldecalcitol is an improved vitamin D drug than Alfacalcitol. Therefore, we investigate the effectiveness of Eldecalcitol in this study.
