New High-Resolution Computer Tomography Data Demonstrates EVISTA(R)'s Effect on Bone Quality in Osteoporotic Patients
Date:6/28/2010

e-dimensional imaging technique called HRpQCT researchers were able to look inside the bone at the specific bone structure and quality. This provides a new approach to monitoring bone changes, especially while being treated medically for osteoporosis.

It was shown in clinical studies that raloxifene significantly increased BMD by 2% in both osteopenic and osteoporotic postmenopausal women compared to placebo(1). Compared with other osteoporotic drugs the numeric BMD increase with raloxifene is relatively low, although the vertebral fracture risk reduction is similar. The MORE (Multiple Outcome of Raloxifene Evaluation) study demonstrated that EVISTA(R) had a 55% relative risk reduction of vertebral fractures vs. placebo with a 2.4% absolute risk reduction in the risk of 1st vertebral fracture in patients with osteoporosis over 3 years(2). In addition, even the population of patients who lost BMD in the MORE study demonstrated a fracture risk reduction(3). Taking into account that bone strength is determined by both bone density and bone quality, it is assumed that less than 4% of fracture risk reduction is correlated to BMD after raloxifene treatment(3).

About Disease state for product information:

Osteoporosis, meaning 'porous bones' is a progressive disease which increases the risk of fracture, particularly in the spine, wrists and hips due to a reduction in bone strength. Osteoporosis can cause pain, loss of movement, inability to perform daily tasks, and in many cases, death. The declining level of oestrogen results in an increase in bone breakdown (resorption), which can lead to a loss of bone density and hence stability6.

About EVISTA(R):

EVISTA(R) (raloxifene 60mg) is a prescription medication called a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM). It is indicated for the treatm
