In conclusion, administration of oral and intravenous bisphosphonates was associated with increased bone mineral density at the lumbar spine and total hip over two years in HIV-positive patients. However, none of the included trials were long enough to detect the impact of bisphosphonates on a clinically important outcome such as fracture risk.

Bone 2014; 73:1-7. doi: 10.1016/j.bone.2014.12.003. Over time, two periods of increased PHPT incidence occurred, one beginning in 1974 (121.7 per 100,000 person-years) and a second peak (86.2 per 100,000 person-years) starting in 1998. The median age of PHPT subjects has increased significantly from 55 years in 1985–1997 to 60 years of age in 1998–2010 and more patients (36%) had […]

Journal of Bone and Mineral Research, Volume 29, Issue 12, pages 2594–2600. doi: 10.1002/jbmr.2291. In conclusion, the estimated femoral strength from FE analysis of DXA scans is an independent predictor and performs at least as well as FN BMD in predicting incident hip fracture in postmenopausal women.

Accordingly, this Perspective provides evidence that the “undetermined significance” portion of the MGUS acronym may be best replaced in favor of the term “monoclonal gammopathy of skeletal significance” (MGSS) in order to more accurately reflect the enhanced skeletal risks inherent in this condition.
