Abstract

This analysis demonstrates that the vast majority of treatment-compliant postmenopausal women with osteoporosis and minimal prior bisphosphonate exposure have a lumbar spine BMD response to teriparatide that meets or exceeds the LSC. The characteristics of teriparatide responders and nonresponders were not significantly different; thus, we were unable to discern any characteristics that could be used to identify potential nonresponders.
