(SR), which has been demonstrated as an effective anti-osteoporosis remedy, has the potential to reduce the incidence of spinal and hip fracture in postmenopausal women (20).
In several double-blind trials, treatment with strontium in doses of 170-680 mg per day (as strontium ranelate
) for two to five years significantly increased bone mineral density of the hip and spine and significantly reduced the incidence of fractures by 16-49%, compared with placebo, in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.

The objective of this paper is the analysis of the effectiveness of pharmacological correction of experimental osteoporosis with a combination of rosuvastatin with L-norvaline compared with drugs strontium ranelate
(Bivalos) and Calcium D3 Nycomed.
The objective of this study was to compare the Primary and Secondary stability of immediate implant placement with Alveolar Ridge Augmentation (ARA) and Strontium Ranelate
(SR) as aids to enhance the stability using Resonance Frequency Analysis (RFA).
has been proven to favor bone healing by both increasing new bone formation and reducing bone resorption [15-18].
"The Europeans use strontium ranelate
(Protelos), which is not approved here.
I had read the research on strontium ranelate
and was told by a friend of mine, a PhD osteoporosis researcher, that he thought at the 680 mg of strontium ranelate
that was being used in Europe, we would ultimately hear of associated side effects.
The investigators performed an ancillary study of patients enrolled in the phase III, randomized Strontium Ranelate
in Knee Osteoarthritis (SEKOIA) trial, in which assessments included hand x-rays and hand symptoms.
Analgesics, calcium and vitamin D, and strontium ranelate
is a developed drug that has been shown to be effective in reducing the risk of vertebral and hip fractures in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.
