BORBA, Victória Z. Cochenski  e  MANAS, Nádila Cecyn Pietszkowski. The use of PTH in the treatment of osteoporosis. Arq Bras Endocrinol Metab [online]. 2010, vol.54, n.2, pp.213-219. ISSN 1677-9487.

Anabolic drugs have recently widened therapeutic options in osteoporosis treatment, as they influence processes associated with bone formation to a greater extent and earlier than bone reabsortion. They positively affect a number of skeletal properties besides bone density, as intermittent administration of parathyroid hormone (PTH) results in an increase in the number and activity of osteoblasts leading to an increase in bone mass and improvement in skeletal architecture at both the trabecular and cortical bone. Human recombinant parathyroid hormone (hrPTH 1-84) and human recombinant PTH peptide 1-34 (teriparatide) belong to this group. The objective of this paper is to review PTH actions, benefits and adverse effects, action on biochemical markers, combination therapy with antiresorptive agents, impact of antiresorptive therapy prior to anabolic treatment, sequential treatment, and effect on glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis.

Palavras-chave : Osteoporosis; PTH; teriparatide; anabolic.
