Aug 27, 2020

Rheumatology Advisor reports a study sponsored by China’s National Clinical Research Center for Orthopedics, Sports Medicine & Rehabilitation demonstrates that delayed administration of subsequent denosumab doses by greater than 16 weeks is associated with increased risk for vertebral fracture. This risk was observed in both the short delay (4-16 weeks) and the long delay (>16 weeks) groups. Additionally, there was a significant correlation between delayed subsequent injections and major osteoporotic fractures.
