Treatment with parathyroid peptides and estrogen replacement for severe postmenopausal vertebral osteoporosis: prediction of long-term responses in spine and femur.

Abstract:

Fifteen women with severe vertebral osteoporosis were treated with daily parathyroid peptide (hPTH) plus hormone-replacement co-therapy (HRT) for 1 year. Eight other patients were randomized to HRT alone. Co-therapy with hPTH and HRT resulted in an impressive mean treatment response at the spine (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry DXA) 15% above baseline; P < 0.015 compared with the HRT group) at 2 years, while at the proximal femur and radius there were smaller increases. hPTH co-therapy le...
