BACKGROUND: The incidence of colorectal cancer increases with vitamin D deficiency as shown in recently published studies. In addition, prospective investigations have indicated that low vitamin D levels may be associated with increased mortality of colorectal cancer, especially in stage III and IV cases. However, the exact incidence of vitamin D deficiency and the relation between vitamin D deficiency and osteopenia/osteporosis is still not known. The aim of this study is to identify severity of vitamin D deficiency and absolute risk factors of osteopenia/osteoporosis in colorectal cancer survivors...

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: As patients with HIV are living longer because of effective treatments, rates of comorbid chronic diseases such as bone complications are increasing. There is a growing body of literature showing increased rates of osteopenia and osteporosis in the HIV population. Less is known about the risk of fracture, as well as other bone complications, such as avascular necrosis (AVN). RECENT FINDINGS: Increased rates of osteopenia and osteoporosis are seen in the HIV population, likely secondary to an interaction of traditional osteoporotic and HIV-specific risk factors, and possibly the effect of antiretroviral therapy (ART)...

OBJECTIVE: To estimate the prevalence of osteopenia and osteporosis using distal forearm dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry among a random sample of women of 50 years or older living in the city of Durango, Mexico. MATERIAL AND METHODS: 258 women participated in a cross-sectional study fielded at the Osteoporosis Clinic of Durango. Bone mineral density was determined by dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry. Scanning was performed on the distal third of the dominant forearm...

UNLABELLED: Osteoporosis is a frequent complication after renal transplantation. Some workers have shown that bisphosphonates may be effective to prevent and treat corticosteroid-induced osteoporosis in these patients. In this study we report our experience with administration of the biphosphonate alendronate to treat renal transplanted patients with established osteoporosis. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Twelve to 24 months after transplantation (9 women, 5 men) 14 renal transplant patient were treated with alendronate and 12 patients (7 women, 5 men) were untreated...
