Surrogate measures of fracture risk, such as effects on bone mineral density, may be of great interest to assess the efficacy of available osteoporosis treatments. Our results suggest that bone mineral density (BMD) changes cannot be used as a surrogate of anti-fracture efficacy, among patients receiving calcium, with or without vitamin D. Introduction: The purpose of this study is to examine the association between changes in bone mineral density with reduction in the risk of fractures in patients receiving calcium with or without vitamin D. Methods: We selected all randomized placebo-controlled clinical trials of calcium with or without vitamin D supplementation. To be included in this analysis, the studies were required to report both BMD (hip/proximal femur and/or lumbar spine) and the incidence of fractures. Metaregression analyses were used to examine the associations of changes in BMD with reduction in risk of fracture over the duration of each study. The change in BMD was the difference between changes (from baseline) observed in the active treatment group and placebo group. Results: A total of 15 randomized trials (n=47,365) were identified, most of whom (77%) came from the Women’s Health Initiative trial. Results show that larger increases in BMD at the lumbar spine were not associated with greater reduction in fracture risk. Concerning hip BMD changes, we found a statistically significant relationship between hip BMD changes and reduction in risk. However, results were not quite significant after excluding the both largest studies, in which BMD changes were measured in very small subset of patients. These points may have largely biased our results. Conclusions: In conclusion, there was no evidence of a relationship between BMD changes and reduction in risk of fractures among patients receiving calcium with or without vitamin D supplementation. Calcium and/or Vitamin D may reduce fracture rates through a mechanism independent of bone density. [less ▲]

A country-specific FRAX(R) model was developed from the epidemiology of fracture and death in Belgium. Fracture probabilities were identified that corresponded to currently accepted reimbursement thresholds. INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to evaluate a Belgian version of the WHO fracture risk assessment (FRAX(R)) tool to compute 10-year probabilities of osteoporotic fracture in men and women. A particular aim was to determine fracture probabilities that corresponded to the reimbursement policy for the management of osteoporosis in Belgium and the clinical scenarios that gave equivalent fracture probabilities. METHODS: Fracture probabilities were computed from published data on the fracture and death hazards in Belgium. Probabilities took account of age, sex, the presence of clinical risk factors and femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD). Fracture probabilities were determined that were equivalent to intervention (reimbursement) thresholds currently used in Belgium. RESULTS: Fracture probability increased with age, lower BMI, decreasing BMD T-score and all clinical risk factors used alone or combined. The 10-year probabilities of a major osteoporosis-related fracture that corresponded to current reimbursement guidelines ranged from approximately 7.5% at the age of 50 years to 26% at the age of 80 years where a prior fragility fracture was used as an intervention threshold. For women at the threshold of osteoporosis (femoral neck T-score = -2.5 SD), the respective probabilities ranged from 7.4% to 15%. Several combinations of risk-factor profiles were identified that gave similar or higher fracture probabilities than those currently accepted for reimbursement in Belgium. CONCLUSIONS: The FRAX(R) tool has been used to identify possible thresholds for therapeutic intervention in Belgium, based on equivalence of risk with current guidelines. The FRAX(R) model supports a shift from the current DXA-based intervention strategy, towards a strategy based on fracture probability of a major osteoporotic fracture that in turn may improve identification of patients at increased fracture risk. The approach will need to be supported by health economic analyses. [less ▲]

Osteoporosis treatments need to combine an unequivocally demonstrated reduction of fractures, at various skeletal sites, long-term safety, and a user-friendly profile, optimizing therapeutic adherence. Strontium ranelate is the first compound to simultaneously decrease bone resorption and stimulate bone formation. Its antifracture efficacy, at various skeletal sites, has been established up to 8 years, through studies of the highest methodological standards. Increases in bone mineral density, observed after 1 year of treatment, are predictive of the long-term fracture efficacy, hence suggesting, for the first time in osteoporosis, that bone densitometry can be used as a monitoring tool for both efficacy and compliance. Owing to a positive benefit/risk ratio, strontium ranelate may now be considered as a first-line treatment in the management of osteoporosis [less ▲]
