reatment. Patients were randomized (1:1) to receive either Prolia every six months in year 1 followed by weekly oral alendronate in year 2, or receive alendronate in year 1 followed by Prolia in year 2.

In the study, 92.4 percent of the patients preferred Prolia over alendronate versus 7.6 percent who preferred alendronate (p<0.0001). Additionally, 91.2 percent preferred Prolia as a treatment option versus 8.8 percent for alendronate (p<0.0001), and overall significantly more patients were more satisfied with treatment with Prolia compared to treatment with oral alendronate.

In patients who received Prolia in the second year of the study, treatment with Prolia compared to alendronate was associated with significantly greater:

  • adherence (92.5 percent vs. 63.5 percent, p<0.0001),
  • compliance (93.4 percent vs. 67.8 percent, p<0.0001), and
  • persistence (97.2 percent vs. 71.3 percent, p<0.0001) with treatment.

  • Patients were considered adherent to treatment if they received two Prolia injections within 6 months (plus or minus 4 weeks) apart, or took greater than or equal to 80 percent weekly oral alendronate and at least two alendronate tablets in the last month, and returned for the final study visit within an allotted time.

    The incidence and types of adverse events (AEs) and serious adverse events (SAEs) were generally similar between the Prolia and alendronate patient groups. SAEs were reported in 3.5 percent and 3.9 percent of patients receiving Prolia and alendronate, respectively.

    Osteoporosis: Impact, Prevalence and the Role of AdherenceReferred to as a "silent epidemic" by the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF), osteoporosis is a global problem that is increasing in significance as the population of the world both increases and ages. The World Health Organization has officially declared osteoporosis a public health crisis, and the IOF is urging governments worldwide to
