    Traditional and novel bone remodeling markers in premenopausal and postmenopausal women

    The authors analyzed the ability of several bone turnover markers to predict bone loss in pre- and postmenopausal women and to monitor the efficacy of treatment in osteoporotic women.  Their data suggested that measurement of β-CTX and P1NP show adequate analytical performance and potentially could be included in algorithms for the screening of osteoporosis. Furthermore, these two markers along with osteocalcin and TRACP-5b are useful to monitor the response to risedronate.
