The scientists these days are making an attempt to study the effect of timely doses on the patients who have been treated for osteoporosis. Therefore, the objective of this study is to figure out the difference between the persons who are taking doses on time and those who are not taking their doses on time. The medicine which is being referred here is denosumab. The patients who have been taken as a part and parcel of this research are the ones who are above the age of 45 years and have already started the therapy of denosumab for the treatment of osteoporosis. For measuring the effectiveness of the study, various factors and tools were taken into accord for ensuring that the research is properly completed.

Therefore, the researchers took into consideration the dosing intervals. The time gaps of 4 weeks, 4-17 weeks and more than 17 weeks were taken into accord. Therefore, the primary outcome was a composite fracture within 7 months. The secondary outcomes included the possibilities of osteoporotic fracture, vertebral fracture, hip fracture and non-vertebral fracture. Therefore, as a result it has observed that these risks are ideally more for the persons who are on a long delay as compared to the persons who are on a short delay. The exact figures include that there is 27 percent possibility for the persons who are treated on a short delay and 42 percent possibility for the persons who have a long delay.
