type I collagen in patients with prostate cancer receiving long-term
risedronate treatment and androgen-deprivation therapy
Masaomi Ikeda,1 Takefumi Satoh,1 Ken-ichi Tabata,1 Kazumasa Matsumoto,1 Hiromichi Ishiyama,2 Yusuke Inoue, Kazushige Hayakawa,2 Shiro Baba1 1 Department of Urology, Kitasato University School of Medicine2 Department of Radiology and Radiation Oncology, Kitasato University School of Medicine3 Depertment of Diagnostic Radiology, Kitasato University School of Medicine Objective: To investigate predictive factors and the incidence of a marker for severely suppressed
bone turnover (SSBT) associated with long-term risedronate treatment for patients with prostate
cancer receiving androgen deprivation therapy (ADT).
Methods: From April 2004 to April 2007, 38 patients who had received risedronate (2.5 mg/d)
simultaneously with ADT for more than 3 years were enrolled in this study. Baseline assessments in
all patients included urinary cross-linked N-telopeptide of type I collagen (NTx) and bone mineral
density, with measurements repeated every 6 months. Urinary NTx falling to <13.0 nmol bone
collagen equivalents per mmol of creatinine was used as a marker for SSBT (SSBTM).
Results: SSBTM was confirmed in 4 patients (11%). The mean time from beginning the risedronate
treatment to detectable SSBTM was 4.5 years (range, 2.5-5.5 years). The mean (SD) age was 69.5
(1.2) years in the SSBTM group compared with 75.1 (6.4) years in the non-SSBTM group (P = 0.039).
Conclusions: SSBTM associated with long-term treatment with risedronate for patients with prostate
cancer receiving ADT was confirmed. The results suggest that careful monitoring of bone turnover
markers is needed during long-term bisphosphonate treatment, especially in younger patients.

Eligible patients received risedronate (2.5 mg/d) simultaneously with the initiation of ADT. At baseline, the BMD of all patients was assessed by DXA and urinary cross-linked N-telopeptide of type I collagen (NTx) was measured; tests were repeated every 6 months. Serum testosterone and prostate-specific antigen (PSA) were measured at baseline. Serum calcium, alkaline phosphatase (ALP) and other chemical variables were monitored every 3 months.

Europe, and North America, largely because of the wide Furthermore, Goh et al.18 and Kwek et al.17 reported 17 utilization of PSA testing that detects clinically important patients receiving long-term alendronate therapy tumors. In addition, incidence of prostate cancer and (average, 4.8 years) with low-energy subtrochanteric related mortality are rapidly increasing in Japan.
Although ADT is usually given to patients with locally Clinically, SSBT is characterized by spontaneous or advanced prostate cancer or metastasis not only in Japan atraumatic fractures involving the skeletal areas that are but also in the United States, the frequency of ADT being rich in cortical bone, with fractures occurring at atypical used to treat localized disease is also increasing in clinical sites for patients with osteoporosis, such as the femoral practice.3 Furthermore, several randomized controlled shaft, pubis, or ischium, during long-term alendronate trials show an overall survival benefit of neoadjuvant therapy. SSBT is histologically defined by a reduced and adjuvant ADT, and this combination treatment has osteoblastic surface and an osteoclastic surface with had a large impact.25-27 Therefore, the number of patients decreased or absent tetracycline labeling.19 These undergoing ADT may increase worldwide.

With long-term ADT, osteoporosis is an important clinical issue In the present study, SSBTM was revealed in 4 of the for men.

The mean age in the SSBTM group in their lifetime.8 Shahinian et al.6 reported that of men and non-SSBTM group was 69.5 ± 1.2 years and 75.1 surviving ≥5 years after the diagnosis of prostate cancer, ± 6.4 years, respectively (P = 0.039). To our knowledge, 19.4% of those who received ADT had a fracture this is the first report to find a high risk of SSBTM in compared with 12.6% of those not receiving ADT. The benefit of bisphosphonate therapy for male osteoporosis The present study was limited by the data on SSBTM has been suggested by previous reports.28 A second- not being from a randomized trial. Additional limitations generation intravenous bisphosphonate (pamidronate) include the small sample size, lack of bone biopsy and was shown to inhibit the decrease of BMD in prostate relatively short follow-up. However, around 10% of cancer patients receiving ADT,9 while a third-generation patients with prostate cancer had SSBTM during ADT intravenous bisphosphonate (zoledronic acid) actually with long-term risedronate treatment. Thus, we must not reversed BMD decline.29 Another third-generation oral only take care of osteoporosis, but also monitor a patient's bisphosphonate (risedronate) was shown to recover bone bone turnover. This may be critical given the potential loss in patients with prostate cancer undergoing ADT.8 for a long life span in patients with prostate cancer.
