Treatment To Prevent Fractures in Men and Women With Low Bone Density or Osteoporosis: An Update

Slide: 38 of 40

Gaps in Knowledge (2 of 3)

Evidence is sparse regarding the effectiveness of therapies to prevent or treat osteoporosis in men.

Studies have not directly compared the antifracture effects of longer durations of therapy among the various medications. It is thus unclear how long patients should remain on therapy.

Data are insufficient to determine the comparative effectiveness among individual bisphosphonates or between bisphosphonates and calcium, raloxifene, or teriparatide.
