Our objective was to estimate the relationship between longitudinal change in BMD and fragility fractures. We studied 3635 women and 1417 men 50–85 yr of age in the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study who had at least two BMD measurements (lumbar spine, femoral neck, total hip, and trochanter) within the first 5 yr of the study […]

The impact of incident fractures on health-related quality of life: 5 years of data from the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study. Osteoporosis International, 20:703-714.

Using prospective data from the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study (CaMos), we compared health utilities index (HUI) scores after 5 years of follow-up among participants (50 years and older) with and without incident clinical fractures. Incident fractures had a negative impact on HUI scores over time. This study examined change in health-related quality of life (HRQL) […]

Nitrates may have beneficial effects on bone. To determine if nitrates were associated with increased bone mineral density (BMD), we conducted a secondary analysis using data from subjects in a prospective study. Subjects reporting nitrate use had increased BMD compared with non-users, confirming that nitrates have positive BMD effects in women and men. Prior studies […]

Effectiveness of antiresorptives for the prevention of non-vertebral low-trauma fractures in a population-based cohort of women. Osteoporosis International, 20:283–290.

Observational studies are needed to quantify real-life effectiveness of antiresorptive therapy in the prevention of clinical fractures. Antiresorptive therapies were associated with an overall 32% reduction in low-trauma nonvertebral fracture risk among women 50 and older. Effectiveness may be lower among older women and those without risk factors. Randomized controlled trials have shown that antiresorptive […]

Vertebral Fracture Status and the World Health Organization (WHO) Risk Factors for Predicting Osteoporotic Fracture Risk. Journal of Bone Mineral Research, 24(3): 495-502.

Vertebral fractures are the most common osteoporotic fracture, and patients with prevalent vertebral fractures have a greater risk of future fractures. However, radiographically determined vertebral fractures are not identified as a distinct risk factor in the World Health Organization (WHO) fracture risk assessment tool. The objective of this study was to evaluate and compare potential […]

Harvey A.T., Hitchcock C.L., Prior J.C. (2009). Ovulation disturbances and mood across the menstrual cycles of healthy women. Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology, 30(4), 207-214.

We examined the cyclicity of negative mood relative to ovulation and ovulation disturbances in Menstrual Cycle Diary© data collected daily during a 1-year study of ovulation, exercise, and bone change. A validated quantitative basal temperature-based methodology was used to determine the onset of the luteal phase. ‘Feeling depressed’, ‘feeling anxious’, and ‘feeling angry/frustrated’ were scored […]

(2009) Relationship between fractures and mortality: results from the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study. Canadian Medical Association Journal, 181: 265-271.

Fractures have largely been assessed by their impact on quality of life or health care costs. We conducted this study to evaluate the relation between fractures and mortality. A total of 7753 randomly selected people (2187 men and 5566 women) aged 50 years and older from across Canada participated in a 5-year observational cohort study. […]

Detecting evidence of luteal activity by least squares quantitative basal temperature analysis against urinary progesterone metabolites and the effect of wake-time variability. European Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Biology, 146:76-80.

Objective: To assess computerised least-squares analysis of quantitative basal temperature (LS-BT) against urinary pregnanediol glucuronide (PdG) as an indirect measure of ovulation, and to evaluate the stability of LS-QBT to wake-time variation. Study design: Cross-sectional study of 40 healthy, normal-weight, regularly menstruating women aged 19–34. Participants recorded basal temperature and collected first void urine daily […]

Fracture risk assessment based solely on BMD has limitations. Additional risk factors include the presence of a previous low-trauma fracture. We sought to quantify the fracture burden attributable to first versus repeat fracture. We studied 2179 men and 5269 women, 50–90 yr of age, participating in the Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study (CaMos). We included all […]

Background: The relationship between kidney function and bone loss is unclear. Study Design: A prospective observational study. Setting & Participants: 191 men and 444 women aged ≥50 years participating in a population-based observational study designed to determine risk factors for bone loss and fractures. Predictors: The primary predictor of change in bone mineral density (BMD) […]

Normative data for the SF-36 measure of health-related quality of life (HRQOL) exist for those over 25 years of age, based on data from the population-based Canadian Multicentre Osteoporosis Study (CaMos). CaMos recently recruited a sample of young Canadians aged between 16 and 24 years. The purpose of this study was to develop normative SF-36 […]
