The aim of this work was to observe the behavior of osteoblast cells cultured in vitro on titanium discs in relation to disc surface roughness and the addition of melatonin to the culture medium. Among the genes studied, a significant increase in phosphate-regulating neutral endopeptidase, X-linked (PHEX) expression was observed in cells cultured on EP […]

Quantitative study: To assess the prevalence of inadequacy of treatment for osteoporosis in primary prevention (OPP) in women aged 60-74years. Aten Primaria. 2017 Apr 14. pii: S0212-6567(16)30378-X. doi:10.1016/j.aprim.2017.01.007.

Fractures of the proximal femur constitute a major public health problem, with an annual incidence in Spain of 7.6 cases per 1000 inhabitants over 65 years of age. Between May 2010  and December 2016, 33 (median age, 86 years-old) of the 2625 hip fractures were classified as simultaneous extra- and intra-capsular ipsilateral fractures. CONCLUSION: The […]

Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), which includes Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis, is associated with an increased prevalence of osteoporosis and osteopenia. They aim to evaluate the use of the World Health Organization Fracture  Risk Assessment (FRAX®) tool in these patients to assess 10-yr risk of fracture. J Clin Densitom. 2017 Apr – Jun;20(2):180-187. doi: 10.1016/j.jocd.2016.08.010. […]

The skeleton is the most common site of colonization by metastatic cancers. Zoledronic acid (ZA) has been shown to be effective for the treatment of bone metastases regardless of whether the bone lesions are osteolytic or osteoblastic. Biochemical markers of bone turnover may be useful tools to quantify the degree of bone remodeling in the […]

Ti-based alloys have increased importance for biomedical applications due to their excellent properties. In particular, the two recently developed TiZrPdSi(Nb) alloys, with a predominant β-Ti phase microstructure, have good mechanical properties, such as a relatively low Young’s modulus and high hardness.  Results suggest that the TiZrPdSi(Nb) alloys can be considered  as excellent candidates for orthopaedical […]

This meta-analysis aims to determine the effects of regular swimming on bone mineral density (BMD) in young adults (18-30 years). Young adult swimmers present similar BMD values than CG and lower values than HIGH.

HIV infection has been associated with reduced bone mineral density (BMD). Antiretroviral therapy has a deleterious effect on BMD, but its effect on bone fragility is not clear. Long-term treatment with TDF-FTC leads to impaired bone health, not only in terms of BMD, but also in terms of bone quality, another determinant of overall bone […]

This study has as objectives: To estimate the preferences of osteoporotic patients for medication attributes, and analyse data from seven European countries. In total, 1124 patients completed the experiment, with a sample of between 98 and 257 patients per country. They found statistically significant differences in patients’ preferences for anti-osteoporosis medications between countries, especially for […]
