After bisphosphonate treatment, the women whose NTx/Cr responded at month 12 included 96% of the DPD/Cr responders and 88% of the LSBMD responders.
The same study also found that 88% of osteoporotic women whose LSBMD changed significantly after 12 months on alendronate also showed a significant decrease in NTx/Cr at 4 months but only 44% for free DPD/Cr.
