Abstract

Synthetic lα-hydroxylated vitamin D metabolites, lα-OHD3 and 1, 25(OH)2D3, have been successfully used in the management of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Dramatic results have been maintained in terms of increases in intestinal radiocalcium absorption in short- as well as in long-term treatment procedures in terms of increases in bone mineral content and decreases in the occurrence of vertebral fractures.
