Global Study Reveals Differences in Standard of Care for Osteoporosis Across the World
Date:5/25/2008

in 17 cities in the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. GLOW will gather information on osteoporosis risk factors, treatment approaches, patient behaviour, and fracture outcomes with an annual patient survey over a 5 year period.

Results reported herein are from analysis of approximately 50,200 baseline surveys. Patients were categorized as high risk for fracture based on a fracture index score of less than or equal to 5, according to Black et al(v). Bone medications included bishosphonates, raloxifene, strontium ranelate, parathyroid hormone (1-84), teriparatide, tibolone, and calcitonin.

GLOW is being conducted by The Center for Outcomes Research (COR), University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), with the support of an unrestricted research grant from The Alliance for Better Bone Health. The Alliance for Better Bone Health is a collaboration between sanofi-aventis and Procter & Gamble Pharmaceuticals.
