We aimed to characterize incident users of alendronate from Denmark and Spain, and investigate their eligibility for participation in the pivotal Fracture Intervention Trial (FIT). This is an international cross-sectional study, where the data were obtained from the SIDIAP database (Sistema d'Informació per al Desenvolupament de l'Investigació en Atenció Primària) from Catalonia (Spain) and the Danish Health Registries (DHR). This study included patients who were incident users of alendronate, ≥40 years old with no history of Paget's disease. Our measurements were the proportion of incident users of alendronate who were not eligible to participate in FIT. 14,316 and 21,221 subjects initiated alendronate in 2006-2007 (SIDIAP) and 2005-2006 (DHR), respectively. SIDIAP and DHR alendronate user cohorts had 2347 (16.4 %) and 5275 (24.9 %) subjects aged |80 years old, reported 9 (0.1 %) and 91 (0.4 %) diagnoses of myocardial ...

UNLABELLED Once-weekly alendronate 70 mg and once-weekly risedronate 35 mg are indicated for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. These two agents were compared in a 12-month head-to-head trial. Greater gains in BMD and greater reductions in markers of bone turnover were seen with alendronate compared with risedronate with similar tolerability. INTRODUCTION The nitrogen-containing bisphosphonates, alendronate and risedronate, are available in once-weekly (OW) formulations for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. A 12-month, head-to-head study was performed to compare these agents in the treatment of postmenopausal women with low BMD. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 1053 patients from 78 U.S. sites were randomized to OW alendronate 70 mg (N = 520) or risedronate 35 mg (N = 533), taken in the morning after fasting. Endpoints included BMD changes over 6 and 12 months at the hip ...

*  Synthesis, Biological Evaluation and Molecular Docking Studies of High-Affinity Bone Targeting N,N'-Bis (alendronate)...
A bisphosphonate derivative DTPA-bis(alendronate) conjugate has been synthesized and evaluated as potential radiopharmaceutical for bone imaging. The compound was synthesized by the covalent coupling of DTPA-bis(anhydride) with alendronate and was char-acterized on the basis of IR, NMR and mass spectroscopy. It was labelled with 99mTc with 96% efficacy and was found stable for about 24 h under physiological conditions. Blood kinetic studies of 99mTc DTPA-bis(alendronate) showed a biexponential pattern as well as quick washout from the blood circulation. The biological t1/2(F) and t1/2(S) were found to be 50 min ± 0.001 and 6 h 30 min ± 0.005, respectively. Imaging and biodistribution studies showed a significant accumulation of 99mTc DTPA-bis(alendronate) conjugate at bone site. Bone-to-muscles ratios were 12.08 ± 0.001 at 1 h, 45.33 ± 0.001 ...

*  Alendronate (Oral Route) Before Using - Mayo Clinic
If you are using alendronate oral liquid, drink at least 2 ounces (a quarter of a cup) of water immediately after taking the medicine. This will allow the medicine to reach your intestines and be absorbed by the body more quickly. Swallow the tablet whole with a full glass (6 to 8 ounces) of plain water. Do not suck or chew on the tablet because it may cause throat irritation. If you are taking alendronate effervescent tablet, dissolve it in 4 ounces of room temperature plain water only (not mineral water or flavored water). Wait at least 5 minutes after the effervescence stops and then stir the solution for 10 seconds and drink it. Do not lie down for at least 30 minutes after taking alendronate and before having your first food for the day. This will help alendronate reach your stomach faster. It will also help prevent irritation to your esophagus. It is important that you eat a well-balanced diet with adequate amounts of ...

Main results. 18% of patients used PPIs at baseline, and 27% used PPIs concurrently with alendronate during follow-up. 5.4% of patients had hip fractures, 1.5% had forearm fractures, 0.9% had humerus fractures, and 0.6% had spine fractures. Concurrent use of PPIs was associated with reduced effectiveness of alendronate for preventing hip fractures compared with no PPI use (Table); PPI use did not attenuate the effectiveness of alendronate for preventing forearm (4.5/1000 patient-y in PPI users vs 4.3/1000 patient-y in nonusers), humerus (2.9 vs 2.5/1000 patient-y), or spine (2.7 vs 1.3/1000 patient-y) fractures. In patients who used PPIs concurrently with alendronate, reduction in risk for hip fractures attenuated in a dose-dependent manner and was maintained only at lower cumulative PPI doses (cumulative defined daily doses [DDDs] 1 to 359, n = 7210, hazard ratio [HR] 0.63, 95% CI 0.55 to 0.72; DDDs 360 to 719, n = 1701, HR 1.00, CI 0.70 to ...

*  Reduced colon cancer incidence and mortality in postmenopausal women treated with an oral bisphosphonate--Danish National...
In this Danish national register-based cohort study, we examined the effects of alendronate on the development of colon cancers and survival. The incidence of colon cancer and mortality rate, once colon cancer had been diagnosed, were lower in patients treated with alendronate, posing the question whether alendronate acts as chemopreventive.When bisphosphonates are given by mouth, around 99% remains non-absorbed in the intestine. Based on their biochemical actions, we predicted that oral bisphosphonates might prevent colon cancers.This is a Danish national register-based cohort study. We identified 30,606 women aged 50+, mean age 71.9 years, who had not previously taken treatments for osteoporosis, who began to take alendronate in 1996-2005, and assigned 124,424 individually age- and gender-matched control subjects.

*  Safety and Effectiveness of Alendronate for Bone Mineral Density in HIV-infected Children and Adolescents - Full Text View -...
Puberty is a time when the foundation is laid for healthy bone mass. Over the course of puberty, 26% of bone mass is established in the 4-year period of peak height velocity and up to 60% of adult peak bone mass is established. Factors that affect normal bone mineralization include calcium intake, vitamin D status, degree of physical and weight bearing activities, hormones, genetics, body weight, and general health and nutrition status. HIV-infected children, youth, and adults have lower bone mineral density (BMD) than would be expected for healthy people of similar age, weight, and race. As the majority of perinatally HIV-infected U.S. children are entering or in adolescence, the potential for HIV-related impaired BMD during the adolescent peak of bone mass acquisition is ...

Alendronate (4-amino-1-hydroxybutylidene-1,1-bisphosphonate), an antiosteolytic agent, is currently under investigation in the treatment of a variety of bone diseases. Earlier studies from this laboratory have demonstrated that systemically administered alendronate is rapidly either taken up by bone tissues or excreted by the kidney, and that renal excretion is the only route of elimination. The purpose of this study is to characterize the renal handling of alendronate in rats by standard clearance procedures with inulin as a marker of glomerular filtration rate. Alendronate is highly bound to rat serum protein. The excretion of alendronate by the kidney is concentration-and dose-dependent, and saturable, indicating that it is secreted by an active transport mechanism. The secretory mechanism exhibits limitation of transport, with an apparent Tm of ...
