Drug effectiveness in reducing glucocorticoid-induced bone loss

Posted: 27 Apr 2018 11:47 AM PDT

About one in every 100 people in the world takes glucocorticoids long term to treat immune-mediated diseases. However, glucocorticoids, such as prednisone, have a side effect -- they induce glucocorticoid-induced bone loss, causing an estimated yearly bone fracture rate of 5 percent. An alternative treatment option to the standard treatment now appears promising, according to an international study. Researchers compared the monoclonal antibody denosumab against a standard bisphosphonate.

Introduced species overlooked in biodiversity reporting

Posted: 27 Apr 2018 07:02 AM PDT

The reports on biodiversity are based on indicators that only take indigenous -- i.e. 'original' -- species into account for each region. Yet today modern environments are made up of indigenous and introduced species. The introductions are either deliberate or accidental. Although these introduced species play important roles, they are ignored by specialists, a fact that partly distorts the international nature reports. The study recommends that the contributions made by these species should be included.
