Introduction Materials and methods Osteoporosis was defined at a 1993 consensus conference We searched Medline, Embase and Current Contents from 1980 to 2002 for randomized controlled trials with drug treatment inter- as a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone vention in Caucasian women with postmenopausal osteoporosis mass and micro-architectural deterioration of bone tissue (defined as T-score below –2SD at inclusion and/or prevalent with a resultant increase in fragility and risk of fracture anamnestic fracture) and reporting vertebral fracture data (either as. As bone quality cannot be evaluated easily in daily a primary or secondary endpoint or as an adverse event). Dupli- practice, the diagnosis of osteoporosis is made on low cates, abstracts, and posters were eliminated by manual selection. All definitions of radiological vertebral fractures (anterior, mid- bone mineral density (BMD), expressed as the number of dle, or posterior vertebral height loss defined as any % loss and/or standard deviations above or below BMD for normal as any absolute value in millimeters), as chosen by the authors, young adults (T-score). The World Health Organization were accepted for inclusion in the final analysis. Counting events instead of pa- fractures have been identified [26, 35], a history of previ- tients has been criticized as violating basic statistical assumptions ous vertebral fracture is a particularly important risk fac- and invalidating the use of common statistical tests as well as cross tor for future fractures. The risk for new fractures, independently of bone mass [9, 17, minimum required duration for a phase III trial for development of anti-osteoporotic drugs is usually specified at 3 years in Europe 79]. In addition, vertebral fractures are common: 5% of and in the US, the European CPMP regulations being the most Caucasian women aged 50 and 25% of those aged 80 have stringent, requiring demonstrated anti-fracture efficacy prior to one or more fractures, and as many as 11–56% of pa- registration of an osteoporosis drug.
