Ibandronate is a nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate which has been shown to reduce vertebral fracture rates, when given orally either daily or intermittently. Non-vertebral antifracture efficacy of ibandronate has been derived from a post-hoc analysis focusing on patients at high risk of developing non-vertebral fractures (low bone mineral density at the femoral neck). Once-monthly administration of oral ibandronate has been linked to significantly greater increases in bone mineral density, at the spine, hip and femoral neck, compared to daily formulation. This monthly formulation has a safety profile similar to the one observed with the daily administration of the compound. Adherence to monthly bisphosphonates appears to be significantly higher than for daily or weekly administration. [less ▲]

SUMMARY: This analysis was conducted to assess the effect of high versus lower doses of ibandronate on nonvertebral fractures. The results were adjusted for clinical fracture, age, and bone density. The treatment effect was dose-dependent. Higher doses of ibandronate significantly reduced the risk of nonvertebral fractures more effectively compared with lower doses. INTRODUCTION: The objective of this study was to assess the efficacy of different doses of ibandronate on nonvertebral fractures in a pooled analysis. METHODS: Eight randomized trials of ibandronate were reviewed for inclusion. Alternative definitions of high versus low doses based on annual cumulative exposure (ACE) were explored. A time-to-event analysis was conducted using Kaplan-Meier methodology. Hazard ratios (HR) were derived using Cox regression and adjusted for covariates. RESULTS: Combining higher ACE doses of > or = 10.8 mg (150 mg once monthly, 3 mg i.v. quarterly, and 2 mg i.v. every 2 months) versus ACE doses of 5.5 mg, from two trials, resulted in an HR 0.62 (95% CI 0.396-0.974, p = 0.038). There was a dose-response trend with increasing ACE doses (7.2-12 mg) versus ACE of 5.5 mg. CONCLUSIONS: A dose-response effect on nonvertebral fractures was observed when comparing high with low ACE doses. A significant reduction in nonvertebral fractures was noted when pooling data from trials using ACE doses of > or = 10.8 mg versus ACE < or = 7.2 mg; and with ACE > or = 10.8 mg versus ACE of 5.5 mg (38% reduction). Higher ibandronate dose levels (150 mg monthly or 3 mg i.v. quarterly) significantly reduced nonvertebral fracture risk in postmenopausal women. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Postmenopausal osteoporosis is a serious, chronic condition, for which nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates are now one of the treatments of choice. OBJECTIVE: To review the profile of ibandronate, a monthly oral (150 mg) or quarterly intravenous injection (3 mg) of bisphosphonate. METHODS: The literature search was limited to publications of ibandronate data. RESULTS/CONCLUSION: Ibandronate is rapidly absorbed and distributed in the bone; it is not metabolised and is excreted in urine. Clinical trial data have demonstrated the efficacy of ibandronate in reducing fracture risk, increasing bone mineral density and reducing bone turnover. These data are supported by recent meta-analyses and a large database study that have demonstrated antifracture efficacy with the ibandronate regimens used in clinical practice. Overall, ibandronate has generally been well tolerated. Therefore, ibandronate is a useful treatment for postmenopausal osteoporosis. [less ▲]

Twelve animals affected with syndactyly or mulefoot were sampled in the Dutch black-and-white cattle population. Analysis of the pedigree data reveal that all of these individuals traced back to a single acknowledged carrier founder individual. Between seven and nine generations separated the founder from its 12 affected descendents. The 12 affected offspring were genotyped for a battery of 213 microsatellites spanning the 29 bovine autosomes. The resulting genotypes were analyzed using a maximum likelihood approach searching for shared homozygous haplotypes among affected individuals. Three candidate regions for the syndactyly locus emerged from this initial screening. syndactyly was shown to map to one of these candidate regions on chromosome 15 by genotyping 29 additional individuals linking founder and affected offspring and performing a conventional linkage analysis with the LINKAGE programs. This study illustrates the potential of identity-by-descent mapping in livestock populations. [less ▲]

Within the framework of energy management in a tertiary building, it is necessary to evaluate the possibilities of cold energy storage. This study includes the consideration of ice storage for the airconditioning of the buildings. To compare objectively the operating strategies, the manager needs to reproduce the ISS performances for the same conditions (building, cooling and electrical demands, climate conditions,...). He needs also informations to chose the appropriate plant configuration or operating strategy to meet the global cooling demand taking into account the characteristics of the tank, of the demand curve,... at each moment. A simulation model of an entire HVAC primary plant should provide this information. This paper focuses on the adaptation of a latent storage model to an example of ISS. In order to validate the model the results of the simulation are compared to the performances of a small-size. [less ▲]

An ice storage can be an interesting option in a HVAC plant. It reduces the electricity costs and increases the HVAC plant capabilities. ISS reduces the on-peak power and shifts the cooling demand from the on-peak hours to the off-peak hours. ISS increases the available HVAC plant power, and then, the internal comfort. To store cold energy requires the selection of operating strategies. The objective of these strategies is to meet the global cooling demand of the building. Each strategy offers different technical and economical characteristics. The typical questions the manager of an HVAC plant has to solve are: Which is optimal ice storage tank in my case? Which cooling power? Which cooling capacity? How to run the HVAC plant to minimize the cost? To compare objectively the strategies, the manager needs to reproduce the ISS performances for the same conditions (building, cooling and electrical demands, climate conditions,...). He needs also informations to chose the appropriate plant configuration or operating strategy to meet the global cooling demand taking into account the characteristics of the tank, of the demand curve,... at each moment.

The surface velocity field of Shirase Glacier, a fast-flowing East Antarctic outlet glacier, is determined from ERS synthetic aperture radar (SAR) images by means of speckle tracking using phase correlation, a technique which matches small image kernels of two complex SAR images by maximization of the local coherence. Velocity estimates are used to calculate surface strain rates, which are then used to calculate the large-scale, vertically integrated force balance and to determine the major stress components resisting the driving stress. For the whole glacier system, the driving stress is largely balanced by the basal drag, but with contributions from lateral drag up to 15% of the driving stress at the grounding line. Longitudinal stress gradients have only local importance to the balance of forces, limited to an area of a few square kilometers near the grounding line, where they resist the driving stress. In the grounded part of the glacier, >90% of the total ice velocity is due to basal sliding. Comparison with a balance-flux distribution of the Antarctic ice sheet suggests that the glacier in the downstream part of the Shirase drainage basin is close to equilibrium, showing a slight negative imbalance.

Since the 2007 Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change Fourth Assessment Report, new observations of ice-sheet mass balance and improved computer simulations of ice-sheet response to continuing climate change have been published. Whereas Greenland is losing ice mass at an increasing pace, current Antarctic ice loss is likely to be less than some recently published estimates. It remains unclear whether East Antarctica has been gaining or losing ice mass over the past 20 years, and uncertainties in ice-mass change for West Antarctica and the Antarctic Peninsula remain large. We discuss the past six years of progress and examine the key problems that remain. [less ▲]
