Prolia reverses cortical bone density loss in women with postmenopausal osteoporosis

March 6, 2015

SAN DIEGO — Treatment with Prolia helped stop and reverse cortical bone density loss at the wrist among women with postmenopausal osteoporosis, according to study findings presented here.

“The skeleton is 80% cortical bone and cortical bone loss contributes importantly to increased fracture risk,” the researchers wrote. “Denosumab has been shown to increase [bone mineral density] at sites of cortical bone, including the 1/3 radius, a skeletal site not responsive to most osteoporosis treatments.”
