Short-Term, High-Dose Parathyroid Hormone-Related Protein as a Skeletal Anabolic Agent for the Treatment of Postmenopausal Osteoporosis
PTH-related protein (PTHrP) is homologous with PTH. PTH, an effective anabolic agent for treating osteoporosis, has been shown to stimulate both bone resorption by osteoclasts and bone formation by osteoblasts. We examined whether PTHrP might share anabolic properties in osteoporosis. A 3-month double-blind, prospective, placebo-controlled, randomized clinical trial was performed in 16 healthy postmenopausal women with osteoporosis. All received calcium and vitamin D, and all continued their prior hormone replacement therapy. One group also received daily sc PTHrP (6.56 µg/kg·d, or approximately 400 µg/d), and the other group received placebo injections.
