Thus bone turnover markers (BTMs) (3) can also provide information on disease activity in oncologic and rheumatologic conditions affecting bone.
Changes in bone turnover markers over time were more favorable with denosumab, he continued.
After 1 year of follow-up, patients who were above the median for a high turnover had about an 8% risk of a new vertebral fracture compared with those patients below the median level of the bone turnover marker. Next, the investigators evaluated the effect of risedronate on vertebral fracture risk reduction and found that risedronate produced a greater fracture risk reduction in the high turnover group compared to the low turnover group.
The study is convincing because of its reliance on a clinical fracture outcome rather than surrogate measures such as rates of BMD loss or changes in bone turnover marker levels.
Much effort has gone into assay development and refinement such that several bone turnover markers are now available on fully automated platforms (10,11).
Upon discontinuing denosumab, there's a marked rebound effect in which levels of bone turnover markers rise for 2 years, and some or all of the BMD that was gained is lost (J Clin Endocrinol Metab.
Other study has not confirmed this effect of calcitonin on bone turnover markers [12].
Different methodologies used to measure P1NP (intact, monomers etc.) are the reasons, which make it difficult to compare the results from other studies and to understand clinical utility of bone turnover markers in clinical practice [11].
These results were quite close to one of the study showing no differences in bone turnover markers in patients with low 25-OHD10, while some studies show that there is significant increase in the bone turnover markers with low vitamin D levels11.
TNF-[alpha], interleukin 1 (IL-1), and interleukin 6 (IL-6) concentrations have been found to associate with bone turnover markers such as pyridinoline, deoxypyridinoline, and osteocalcin in AS.
Bone Turnover Markers (BTMs) unfold precious Informations for the diagnosis and prognosis of metabolic bone conditions because as compare to DEXA they provide more representative index of overall skeletal bone loss9.
Most of the current understanding regarding changes in bone turnover markers in T2D patients has been developed from data in populations of primarily Caucasian descent.
