Calcium plus vitamin D supplementation and risk of fractures: an updated meta-analysis from the National Osteoporosis Foundation

Summary The aim was to meta-analyze randomized controlled trials of calcium plus vitamin D supplementation and fracture prevention. Meta-analysis showed a significant 15 % reduced risk of total fractures (summary relative risk estimate [SRRE], 0.85; 95 % confidence interval [CI], 0.73–0.98) and a 30 % reduced risk of hip fractures (SRRE, 0.70; 95 % CI, 0.56–0.87). Introduction ...

Comparative performance of current definitions of sarcopenia against the prospective incidence of falls among community-dwelling seniors age 65 and older

Summary In this study, we compare the extent to which seven available definitions of sarcopenia and two related definitions predict the rate of falling. Our results suggest that the definitions of Baumgartner and Cruz-Jentoft best predict the rate of falls among sarcopenic versus non-sarcopenic community-dwelling seniors. Introduction The purpose of the study is to compare the ...

The impact of suggested changes is likely to be a lowering of 10-year fracture probabilities. Introduction Evaluation of results produced by the US version of FRAX® indicates that this tool overestimates the likelihood of major ...

Recall of Early Menstrual History and Menarcheal Body Size: After 30 Years, How Well Do Women Remember?

The validity of recall of early menstrual characteristics is of interest because of their putative role in the etiology of breast cancer and other diseases. A retrospective follow-up of the Newton Girls Study (1965–1975) provided an opportunity to assess the accuracy and precision of recall of several early menstrual characteristics. In 1998–1999, 57 percent of the original 793 ...
