Özet

Different therapy models have been tried in order to decrease bone resorption in osteogenesis imperfecta. Bisphosphonates are a group of drugs that mainly suppress osteoclast-mediated bone resorption, thus reducing bone turnover. We assessed the effects of low-dose bisphosphonate treatment in children with osteogenesis imperfecta.
