Bone markers as screening strategy for patient adherence to osteoporosis medications

IOF-ECTS Position Paper provides recommendations for the screening of adherence to oral bisphosphonates; proposes assessment using PINP and CTX bone turnover markers (BTMs) at baseline and after three months.

Oral bisphosphonates are common first line treatments for osteoporosis. However, approximately half of patients who begin osteoporosis treatment do not follow their prescribed treatment and/or discontinue treatment within a year. Identifying low adherence to medication – a problem commonly seen with many chronic diseases – is a critical issue as it jeopardizes the efficacy of treatment, leaving osteoporosis patients unprotected against fractures.
