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

This slide set is based on a comparative effectiveness review (CER), Treatment To Prevent Fractures in Men and Women With Low Bone Density or Osteoporosis: An Update to the 2007 Report, that was developed by the Southern California Evidence-based Practice Center for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) under Contract No. HHSA 290-2007-10062-I and is available online at www.effectivehealthcare.ahrq.gov/lbd.cfm.

CERs are comprehensive systematic reviews of the literature that usually compare two or more types of treatment, such as different drugs or adding a second drug to usual care for the same disease. The literature included in this review was identified in searches for trials and studies that explicitly evaluated the effectiveness of treatments to prevent fractures in men and women with low bone density or osteoporosis. Searches were conducted for studies published from January 2005 through March 2011.
