8 A Gender Related Condition > Osteoporosis is the most common bone disorder affecting humans > The risk of hip fracture doubles for every 5- to 6- year increase in age from ages > Of the 10 million Americans estimated to have osteoporosis, 8 million are women (80%) Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014
9 Vertebral Fractures Significant consequences for patients > Acute and chronic pain > Kyphosis and height loss > Impaired function > Increased morbidity and mortality > Increased fracture risk Delmas PD, et al. J Bone Miner Res. 2005;20:
10 Hip and Other Non-Vertebral Fractures Have Significant Consequences > Hip fracture associated with Loss of ambulatory status in 30% of patients Increased morbidity and mortality Increased fracture risk Major reason for admission to chronic care facilities > Non-vertebral fractures Pain Increased risk of future fractures Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014
11 Fewer Than 35% of Hip Fracture Patients Receive Pharmacologic Treatment Within 6 Months Fracture Liason Service (FLS) > To identify and treat patients with a recent fragility fracture > Has been show to be effective and save money > Multidisciplinary system approach > Identifies patients at or proximate, to the time they are treated at the hospital for fracture > Provides easy access to osteoporosis care.

16 Fragility Fractures BONE ATTACK 1 Over age 40, when a trip or fall from a STANDING HEIGHT leads to FRACTURE > Defines a bone strength problem > Impacts future risk for subsequent fracture Bone Density is 70% Bone Quality is 30% > BMD for 40 and older > Need to consider therapy Risa Kagan MD, NAMS Fragility Fracture Video, 9/16
17 Synopsis of Major Recommendations to the Clinician for Bone Health: Apply to postmenopausal women and men age 50 and older > Counsel on the risk of osteoporosis and related fractures > Check for secondary causes > Advise on adequate amounts of calcium at least 1,200 mg per day > Advise on adequate amounts of Vitamin D 800-1,000 IU per day National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014
18 Synopsis of Major Recommendations to the Clinician: > Supplements if necessary for individuals age 50 and older > Recommend regular weight-bearing and musclestrengthening exercise to reduce the risk of falls and fractures > Advise avoidance of tobacco smoking and excessive alcohol intake Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2013
19 Who Should Have Bone Density Testing? Recommend Bone Mineral Testing (BMD) to: > Women age 65 and older > Men age 70 and older > Post-menopausal women and men age when there are concerns regarding risk profile > Those who have had a fracture, to determine degree of disease severity > BMD testing should be performed at DXA facilities using accepted quality assurance measures Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014
20 NOF Treatment Guidelines 2014 After exclusion of secondary cause, treat postmenopausal women and men age 50 and older who have A fracture of the hip or vertebra (clinical or morphometric) T-score -2.5 or below in the femoral neck, total hip or spine T-score between -1.0 and -2.5 in the femoral neck or total hip or spine if 10-year risk to 3% for hip fracture or to 20% for major osteoporotic fractures based on FRAX model Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2013
21 Using FRAX To find those individuals at high risk for fracture, who are not yet osteoporotic! If your patient has osteoporosis by T-score, you do not have to look at FRAX. BUT, you may look at FRAX! More fractures occur in men and women with T-scores from -1.0 to -2.5!
22 FRAX: Gauging 10 Year Fracture Probability
24 Application of FRAX TM In the US > Intended for post-menopausal women and men age 50 and older > Has not been validated in patients currently or previously treated with pharmacotherapy for osteoporosis. In such patients, clinical judgment must be exercised in interpreting FRAX scores. Patients who have been off osteoporosis medication for 1 to 2 years or more might be considered untreated. Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014 Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2013
25 Application of FRAX TM In the US > Frax can be calculated with either femoral neck BMD or total hip BMD, but, when available, femoral neck BMD is preferred. Use of BMD from non hip sites is not recommended. > T scores must be converted to a reference standard to be used. The FRAX patch is available at to make the calculation > FRAX may be calculated by going to the FRAX calculator at the University of Sheffield website Clinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014
26 Application of FRAX TM In the US The use of FRAX TM is for clinical guidance only and is not a rule. Consider intervention strategies for those: Who do not have osteoporosis by BMD Do not meet the cut points after FRAX Are not high enough risk of fracture despite low BMD Conversely, the recommendations do not mandate treatment Make decisions to treat on a case- by- case basis. atioclinicians Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis National Osteoporosis Foundation 2014
27 Obstacles in the Management of Osteoporosis > Insufficient rates of diagnosis > Low awareness by practitioners and patients of the imperative to treat > Global challenge to adherence to therapy in chronic disease > Uncertainly by practitioner and patients regarding treatment regimens and risk
28 Treatment When and How
29 NOF Guidelines: When to Treat Pharmacologic Treatment > Postmenopausal women or men over age 50 with a prior hip or spine fracture > Postmenopausal women or men over 50 with a BMD T- score of -2.5 or lower at the hip or spine > Postmenopausal women or men over 50 with T-score between -1 and -2.5 at the femoral neck, total hip, or spine if: 10 year probability (from FRAX) of hip fracture is 3% 10 year probability of a major osteoporosis-related fracture is 20% National Osteoporosis Foundation. Clinician s Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis. National Osteoporosis foundation; Washington, DC. 2014
30 Treatment Recommendations > No pharmacologic therapy should be considered indefinite in duration > After the initial three to five year treatment period, a comprehensive risk assessment should be performed > There is no uniform recommendation that applies to all patients and duration decisions need to be individualized National Osteoporosis Foundation. Clinician s Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis. National Osteoporosis foundation; Washington, DC. 2014
31 Non-Pharmacologic Interventions > Goal of non-pharmacologic intervention is to prevent future fractures through lifestyle change > The role of Vitamin D in osteoporosis May be important as both adjuvant and treatment Might be important in the response to therapy The effect on muscle strength, balance and risk of falls is important > Exercise > Fall Prevention
32 Current Pharmacologic Agents Approved for the Treatment of Osteoporosis > Anti-resorptive agents Bisphosphonates Weekly oral alendronate (Fosamax) Weekly or monthly risedronate (Actonel) Monthly oral or quarterly IV ibandronate (Boniva) Once yearly infusion Zoledronic Acid (Reclast) Rank Ligand Inhibitor Denosumab (Prolia) National Osteoporosis Foundation. Clinician s Guide to Prevention and Treatment of Osteoporosis. National Osteoporosis foundation; Washington, DC. 2014
33 Current Pharmacologic Agents Approved for the Treatment of Osteoporosis Calcitonin Selective estrogen receptor modulators (SERMS) Raloxifene (Evista) > Anabolic agents Parathyroid hormone - Teriparatide (Forteo) Abaloparatide (Tymlos)
36 Effects of Bisphosphonates > Decreased bone turnover > Increased BMD at spine and hip > Decreased risk of vertebral and hip fractures > Sustained effects with continued treatment > Best studied class of agents used in treating osteoporosis > Long term safety record Black DM, et al. Lancet. 1996;348: , Body J, et al. J Clin Endocrinol Metab. 2002;87:
37 ORAL BISPHOSPHONATES > Pros Osteoporosis prevention and treatment Reduction in risk of vertebral fractures (w/ and w/o pre-existing fx) > Cons Require lifestyle change empty stomach water only may lead to noncompliance GI adverse effects Marginal efficacy in nonvertebral fractures (e.g. hip) Long-term safety is unconfirmed
38 Absorption and Tolerability of Oral Bisphosphonates Are Affected When Dosing Instructions are not Followed > Coffee or juice can reduce absorption by as much as 60% > Calcium supplements can interfere with absorption and should not be taken at the same time as oral bisphosphonate therapy > GI side effects are more likely when dosing instructions are not followed > Even when complete instructions are given, between 25% and 50% of patients disregard at least one requirement Gert FJ, et al.

52 Abaloparatide FDA approved 4/28/17 > Indicated for: Treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at high risk for fracture defined as: A history of osteoporotic fracture, multiple risk factors for fracture, or patients who have failed or are intolerant to other available osteoporosis therapy > Lab-made copy of part of the human parathyroid hormonerelated protein (PTHrP) > Daily subcutaneous injection > Recommended for two years and followed with bisphosphonates for several years > Carries a label warning regarding osteosarcoma > Side effects include nausea, dizziness, and vomiting
54 Effects of SERMS (Estrogen agonist/antagonists) > SERMS exert estrogen like effects on the skeleton > Decrease bone turnover > Increase bone density, but to a lesser degree than with bisphosphonates > Decrease risk of vertebral fracture > No hip or non-vertebral fracture Ettinger B, et al.,jama.1999; 282:637-85
55 Raloxifene > Pros Osteoporosis prevention No endometrial or breast stimulation LDL reduction > Cons No current nonvertebral fracture data (e.g. hip) No effect on vasomotor symptoms Thrombosis Effects on cholesterol are modest Leg cramps Fuleihan. N Engl J Med. 1997;337: Editorial.
56 Hormone Therapy Estrogen Therapy Approved for prevention only
57 Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT, Estrogen) > Pros Osteoporosis prevention Cognitive benefits (?) Urogenital symptom improvement > Cons Withdrawal bleeding Endometrial cancer with unopposed estrogen Breast cancer Heart attack Stroke Thrombosis
58 Addressing Recent Controversies in the Treatment of Osteoporosis
59 Addressing Recent Controversies > Treatment decisions require risk and benefit discussions > What was acceptable risk previously, may no longer be acceptable > If disease state risk is high: fracture Risk of rare complications may be outweighed
60 Addressing Recent Controversies > Long term use of bisphosphonate therapy > Bisphosphonate therapy and the occurrence of fractures of the subtrochanteric or diaphyseal femur > Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONJ)
61 Length of Use of Bisphosphonates FDA review in the New England Journal of Medicine, May 31, 2012 > Some patients may be able to stop using after 3 to 5 years and still receive benefit of the drug > Long term risk: still unknown Optimal period of use to maximize effectiveness and decrease risk Is it beneficial to stop drug and start taking again?
62 Long Term Use of Bisphosphonates New Guidance: The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) > Result of 2 clinical trials found that long-term treatment with the medications reduced the likelihood of fractures in women at high risk > Women should be reassessed for risk after 5 years of oral treatment and after 3 years of IV treatment > Women at high risk for fractures should continue oral treatment for up to 10 years and IV for up to 6 years with intermittent follow-up > Women whose risk of fractures decreases after 3 to 5 years should stop treatment for 2 to 3 years Adler RA, EL-Hajj, et al. Managing osteoporosis in patients on long-term bisphosphonate treatment: report of a task force of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. J Bone Miner Res. 2016;31(1): 19-35
63 Long Term Use of Bisphosphonates > The suggested approach for long term use is based on limited evidence, only for vertebral fracture reduction, in mostly white postmenopausal women, and does not replace the need for clinical judgment Adler RA, EL-Hajj, et al. Managing osteoporosis in patients on long-term bisphosphonate treatment: report of a task force of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research. J Bone Miner Res. 2016;31(1): 19-35
64 Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates NAMS Practice Pearl > Bisphosphonates are the cornerstone of treatment for osteoporosis > Generally safe and well-tolerated > For most patients at moderate or high risk: benefits of treatment far outweigh the serious, but RARE risks > Bisphosphonates accumulate in bone with some persistent protective effect after therapy is stopped > This makes it reasonable to consider a drug holiday from bisphosphonate therapy
65 Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates > The duration and length of the holiday should be based on clinical judgment Individualize based on risk/benefit assessments Diab D, Watts N, Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates, NAMS Practice Bulletin, Released April 1, 2013.
66 Low Risk of Fracture Bisphosphonate therapy should be discontinued if it has been prescribed Example: 52 yo old woman, menopause at age 50, lowest T-score -1.4, no risk factors, bisphosphonate therapy for 2 years Treatment was not indicated in the first place. Discontinue Diab D, Watts N, Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates, NAMS Practice Bulletin, Released April 1, 2013.
67 Mild Risk of Fracture Treat with bisphosphonate for 3-5 years, then offer a drug holiday Example: 68 yo woman, menopause age age 48, lowest T-score -2.3, parent with a hip fracture, bisphosphonate therapy for 5 years and BMD stable over that time Treatment was indicated, but a drug holiday might be considered after 5 years of treatment Diab D, Watts N, Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates, NAMS Practice Bulletin, Released April 1, 2013.
68 Moderate Risk of Fracture > Treat with a bisphosphonate for 5 to 10 years, then offer drug holiday of 3-5 years, no risk factors, bisphosphonate therapy for 8 years and BMD increased over that time with a current lowest T- score > Treatment was indicated but after 8 years of treatment, a drug holiday might be considered. Diab D, Watts N, Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates, NAMS Practice Bulletin, Released April 1, 2013.
69 High Risk of Fracture > Treat with bisphosphonate for 10 years, then offer a drug holiday of 1-2 years. A non-bisphosphonate. > Example: 70 year old woman, menopause at age 45, lowest initial T-score -3.5 > Requiring ongoing corticosteroid therapy for rheumatoid arthritis, history of a vertebral fracture, bisphosphonate therapy for 10 years. > Treatment was indicated and she remains at high risk of fracture after 10 years. If a holiday from the bisphosphonate is considered, interval treatment with teriparatide or raloxifene would be prudent Diab D, Watts N, Use of Drug Holidays in Women Taking Bisphosphonates, NAMS Practice Bulletin, Released April 1, 2013.
70 Fractures of the Subtrochanteric or Diaphyseal Femur FDA Safety Communication - 3/10/2010 > Reports out of the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons: Is an increased risk of a rare femur fracture in patients with osteoporosis using bisphosphonates? > At this point, the data that FDA has reviewed: Have not shown a clear connection between bisphosphonate use and a risk of atypical subtrochanteric femur fractures. > FDA is working closely with outside experts: Recently convened American Society of Bone and Mineral Research Subtrochanteric Femoral Fracture Task Force to gather additional information that may provide more insight into this issue.
71 Fractures of the Subtrochanteric or Diaphyseal Femur National Osteoporosis Foundation (NOF) Position Statement for Patients > Based on information that is currently available, NOF believes that for most people taking bisphosphonate medicines, the benefits outweigh the risks of these unusual, but serious conditions that appear to be associated with them.
72 Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ) > Jaw lesions, usually after dental extraction have been observed with bisphosphonate use Most often in patients treated with large IV doses for cancer-related bone diseases. 1,2 > ONJ has been defined as a delay in healing of an oral lesion after surgery or extraction for more than 6 to 8 weeks. 1.Ruggiero SL, Mehrotra B, Rosenberg TJ, Engroff SL.

Management of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women: 2010 position statement of The North American Menopause Society, Menopause, Vol. 17, No. 1, 2010
74 Osteonecrosis of the Jaw (ONJ) > There are no data to recommend the discontinuation of bisphosphonate therapy before dental extraction (although therapy may be suspended until the oral lesion has healed). > There are no data to suggest that dental surgery is contraindicated in patients on bisphosphonate therapy. > Routine dental care is recommended for all patients. Management of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women: 2010 position statement of The North American Menopause Society, Menopause, Vol. 17, No. 1, 2010
75 Summary > Osteoporosis is under diagnosed and preventative care is under utilized > Current practice requires dialogue between patient and practitioner in regards to individual risk and risk and benefits of therapeutic options > Treatment strategies must be individualized to obtain greater compliance to therapy > Practitioners will need to stay current while treatment recommendations continue to be reviewed and possibly changed
