Biochemical prediction of changes in spinal bone mass in juvenile chronic (or rheumatoid) arthritis treated with glucocorticoids.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVE: To identify biochemical predictors of spinal bone mineral growth and the development of spinal osteoporosis in children with juvenile chronic arthritis (JCA) treated with glucocorticoids. METHODS: Bone mass measurements were made at 3 monthly intervals for one year in 31 children.
