Such scans read-fly yield data on lumbar bone mineral density
(BMD), which is a clinically useful way to diagnose or rule out osteoporosis, said Dr.
Factors associated with lumbar bone mineral density
among healthy adults in Changchun.
Outcome Measures: Lumbar bone mineral density
(BMD), Osteocalcin, and undercarboxylated osteocalcin were measured at baseline and again at 24 and 48 weeks.
Speaking at the Experimental Biology meeting in San Diego, CA, researchers said that elderly patients who consumed 5000 IU of vitamin D and 320 mg of calcium carbonate a day through specially formulated bread had a 28% increase in lumbar bone mineral density
after one year.
Serial measurements of lumbar bone mineral density
(BMD) in 26 adult kidney transplant recipients 45 to 74 months posttransplant showed that median BMD values were significantly lower than in the general population, the researchers said.
DALLAS -- Children with osteogenesis imperfecta experience marked improvement in lumbar bone mineral density
with intravenous pamidronate therapy, Dr.
They found elevated coronary artery calcium to be significantly associated with low femoral bone mineral density (OR, 2.24) but not low lumbar bone mineral density
* Denosumab: Although this drug is not yet approved for managing glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis, a subgroup analysis from phase II trial data on 218 patients who were taking either glucocorticoids or bisphosphonares showed that adding denosumab significantly improved lumbar bone mineral density
"on top of what you would normally see from the bisphosphonate," said Dr.
