The mortality rate associated with HIV infection plummeted after the introduction of effective antiretroviral therapy pioneered two decades ago.As a result, HIV-infected people now have a life expectancy comparable to that of HIV-uninfected individuals. Despite this, increased rates of osteoporosis, chronic liver disease, and in particular cardiovascular disease have been reported among people living with HIV infection. With the aging HIV-infected population, the burden of these co-morbid illnesses may continue to accrue over time...

OBJECTIVES: The estimation of fracture risk using clinical risk factors (CRFs) is of primary concern in osteoporosis management, but only some risk factors have been thoroughly evaluated and incorporated in predictive models. We have launched a large prospective study, the 'Fracture Risk Brussels Epidemiological Enquiry' (FRISBEE), to develop a new predictive model for osteoporotic fractures. The aims of this report are to describe the methodology of the FRISBEE study and to compare the distribution of CRFs in our cohort with those reported in other large studies...

Background: Osteoporotic fractures are defined as low-impact fractures resulting from low-level trauma. However, the exclusion of high-level trauma fractures may result in underestimation of the contribution of osteoporosis to fractures. In this study, we aimed to investigate the fracture patterns of female trauma patients with various risks of osteoporosis based on the Osteoporosis Self-Assessment Tool for Asians (OSTA) score. Methods: According to the data retrieved from the Trauma Registry System of a Level I trauma center between 1 January 2009 and 31 December 2015, a total of 6707 patients aged ≥40 years and hospitalized for the treatment of traumatic bone fracture were categorized as high-risk (OSTA < -4, n = 1585), medium-risk (-1 ≥ OSTA ≥ -4, n = 1985), and low-risk (OSTA > -1, n = 3137) patients...

Background: Epidemiologic and clinical data have suggested the existence of a biologic linkage between the bone system and the vascular system. Bisphosphonates (BPs) are effective inhibitors of bone resorption and are currently considered the drugs of choice for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and related fractures. Data from several publications have suggested that BPs may also be effective in reducing the atherosclerotic process and vascular calcification, but the results of these studies are contrasting...

Serum 25(OH)D level reflects bodily vitamin D store. Recently published "Assessment criteria for vitamin D deficiency/insufficiency in Japan" defines vitamin D sufficiency as 25(OH)D level of 30 ng/mL or more, vitamin D insufficiency as that of 20 to 30 ng/mL, vitamin D deficiency as that of less than 20 ng/mL. The lower the serum 25(OH)D level is, the higher the risks are, of secondary hyperparathyroidism, low bone mineral density, fall, fracture, rickets/osteomalacia, and hypocalcemia, as well as lower response to anti-osteoporosis medications...

This nationwide study investigated the epidemiology, treatment patterns, and economic burden of osteoporosis and associated fracture in Taiwan. The treatment of osteoporosis is alarmingly suboptimal, considering the significantly increased economic burden of major osteoporotic fracture. Osteoporosis men received lesser anti-osteoporosis drugs but had higher incremental costs attributable to osteoporotic fractures. PURPOSE: This nationwide study investigated the epidemiology, treatment patterns, and economic burden of osteoporosis and associated fracture between 2009 and 2013 in Taiwan...

Cerebrotendinous xanthomatosis (CTX) is a lipid storage disorder caused by defective sterol 27-hydroxylase activity. In spite of subtle clinical signs beginning from childhood, CTX is generally diagnosed lately. The aim of this study is to evaluate clinical, neuroradiological findings and therapy responses of pediatric CTX patients and raise awareness to early features of disease. Patients who were molecularly diagnosed as CTX before 18 years of age were included in study. Clinical, epidemiological, radiological and genotypic features of patients and chenodeoxycholic acid (CDCA) therapy responses were reviewed retrospectively...

IIn recent years, scientific papers have been published in Osteoporosis International on the epidemiology of fractures in Iceland based on the Icelandic Heart Association cohort. We report the main results with emphasis on the major osteoporotic fractures (MOF), distal forearm, upper arm, clinical vertebral and hip. Those four types of fractures have been reported to cause about 90% of the total burden of all osteoporotic fractures. The incidence of those four fractures in the Icelandic Heart Association cohort have been used as the basis for the international fracture risk calculator "FRAX "in Iceland...

Osteoporosis has become a worldwide public health problem, in part due to the fact that it increases the risk of fragility hip fractures (FHFs). The epidemiological assessment of FHFs is critical for their prevention; however, datasets for FHFs in Japan remain scarce. This was a multicenter, prospective, observational study in the northern district of Kyushu Island. Inclusion criteria were age > 60 years with a diagnosis of FHF and acquisition of clinical data by an electronic data capture system. Of 1294 registered patients, 1146 enrolled in the study...

This study established gender-specific reference values in mainland Chinese (MC) and is important for quantitative morphometry for diagnosis and epidemiological study of osteoporotic vertebral compressive fracture. Comparisons of reference values among different racial populations are then performed to demonstrate the MC-specific characteristic. PURPOSE: Osteoporotic vertebral compressive fracture (OVCF) is a common complication of osteoporosis in the elder population. Clinical diagnosis and epidemiological study of OVCF often employ quantitative morphometry, which relies heavily on the comparison of patients' vertebral parameters to existing reference values derived from the normal population...

Isoflavones are naturally occurring flavonoids characterized by a structure able to exert non-steroidal estrogen-like activity on human cells. The atypical linkage between the rings B and C remarkable influences these potentialities and confers them specific applications, along with the biochemical modification such as acetylation and malonylation. Plants belonging to Leguminosae family are the most abundant and rich sources for human organism, where, after their ingestion and metabolization, they show positive health effects on several diseases, especially in the prevention of coronary heart and neurological diseases, hormone-related cancers, osteoporosis, and postmenopausal symptoms...

Throughout evolution, plants have developed the ability to produce secondary phenolic metabolites, which are important for their interactions with the environment, reproductive strategies and defense mechanisms. These (poly)phenolic compounds are a heterogeneous group of natural antioxidants found in vegetables, cereals and leguminous that exert beneficial and protective actions on human health, playing roles such as enzymatic reaction inhibitors and cofactors, toxic chemicals scavengers and biochemical reaction substrates, increasing the absorption of essential nutrients and selectively inhibiting deleterious intestinal bacteria...

The epidemiology and pathogenesis of fractures in postmenopausal women has previously been investigated in the Global Longitudinal study of Osteoporosis in Women (GLOW). To date, however, relationships between bone imaging outcomes and fracture have not been studied in this cohort. We examined relationships between high-resolution peripheral quantitative computed tomography (HRpQCT) parameters and fracture in the UK arm of GLOW, performing a cluster analysis to assess if our findings were similar to observations reported from older participants of the Hertfordshire Cohort Study (HCS), and extended the analysis to include tibial measurements...
