Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Fragility fracture [ Time Frame: 4 years ]
    Appearance of vertebral or non-vertebral fracture during the 4 years follow-up

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Frozen plasma: for later genetic studies Frozen serum: for later studies on new potential marker of bone remodelling

Enrollment: 1605
Actual Study Start Date: September 20, 2010
Estimated Study Completion Date: May 2025
Primary Completion Date: February 20, 2017 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Groups/Cohorts Assigned Interventions
Osteopenic women
Women with osteopenia: Bone Mineral Density T-score between -1.0 and -2.5 (for whom with clinical factor risk) or -3.0 (for whom without clinical factor risk)
Other: Bone quality complementary exams

realisation of following exams to evaluate fracture risk in osteopenic women:

  • hip and wrist Dual energy X-ray Absorptiometry (DXA)
  • wrist and shin High-Resolution peripheral Quantitative Computed-Tomography(HR-pQCT)
  • hip Quantitative Computed Tomography (QCT)
  • High Resolution Digital X-Ray of calcaneum using BMA(tm) system
  • low-dose stereoradiography using EOS(tm) system (only for a sub-group of 60 voluntary subjects)
