ABSTRACT
The article reports on the results of research which was conducted to determine whether a second retreatment course with teriparatide could produce similar biochemical and bone miineral density changes that were seen seen during a previous treatment in people who had been treated previously with alendronate. Researchers found that retreatment with teriparatide stimulates bone formation and increases spine bone mineral density to a similar extent as seen during the original teriparatide course.
