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 ...

The Effects of Potassium Citrate on Bone Metabolism

Skeletal buffering of chronic acid loads may contribute to a significant amount of bone loss over time. Evidence from a few small short-term studies suggests that basic compounds, namely potassium citrate and potassium bicarbonate may reduce bone loss and improve bone density. The purpose of this study is to evaluate ...

Dried Plums and Bone Health in Postmenopausal Women

Given the current high incidence of osteoporosis, reducing the risk of osteoporosis development is essential. Recent estimates, based on the 2010 US Census, indicate that approximately 10.3 million people age 50 and older have osteoporosis. By 2030 the prevalence of osteoporosis for women 50 years and older is projected to ...

Vitamin K as Additive Treatment in Osteoporosis

Vitamin K is important for skeletal health. Vitamin K is essential for the carboxylation of several Gla proteins in bone which are implicated in bone formation and mineralization. These include osteocalcin (OC) and matrix Gla protein (MGP). Carboxylation of the glutamic acid residues of these proteins optimises their function. Vitamin ...

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, ...

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 ...

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

Nutritional Supplement and Bone Health in Post-Menopausal Women

Study Design: A block randomised, cross-over design of 24h rates of bone turnover in healthy, post-menopausal women with osteopenia receiving either a milk-based protein supplement (MBPS) or isoenergetic placebo control (PLACEBO). Participants: 16 Post-menopausal women with osteopenia as determined by site-specific bone mineral density BMD (DXA) diagnosed and screened by ...

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: ...

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 ...
