    J Bone Miner Res 27:119-24. 2012
    ..Although overlying fat also affects QCT BMD measurements, the error is smaller and more uniform than with DXA BMD. Caution must be used when interpreting BMD changes in humans whose body composition is changing...

    Elaine W Yu
    Endocrine Division, Massachusetts General Hospital, Thier 1101, 50 Blossom Street, Boston, MA 02114, USA
    Calcif Tissue Int 83:251-9. 2008
    ..The use of PPIs in older women, and perhaps older men with low calcium intake, may be associated with a modestly increased risk of nonspine fracture...

    Elaine W Yu

    Bone 48:713-9. 2011
    ..The time-dependent waning of the response to teriparatide appears to be bone-specific...

    Elaine W Yu
    Endocrine Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, USA
    Am J Med 124:519-26. 2011
    ..Concerns have been raised about the risk of fractures with acid-suppressive medications, such as proton pump inhibitors and histamine(2)-receptor antagonists...

    Elaine W Yu
    Massachusetts General Hospital Endocrine Unit, 50 Blossom Street, Thier 1051, Boston, Massachusetts 02114, USA
    J Clin Endocrinol Metab 96:E1848-51. 2011
    ..The immediate physiological changes in serum sclerostin in response to PTH infusion have not been reported in human studies...

    Melissa S Putman
    Endocrine Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital and Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA Endocrine Division, Boston Children s Hospital, Boston, MA, USA
    J Bone Miner Res 28:2177-85. 2013
    ..In conclusion, differences in bone microarchitecture and density contribute to greater estimated bone strength in African-Americans and probably explain, at least in part, the lower fracture risk of African-American women...

    Elaine W Yu
    Department of Medicine, Endocrine Unit, Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, MA, USA
    J Bone Miner Res 29:542-50. 2014
    ..These discordant results suggest that artifacts induced by large changes in body weight after bariatric surgery affect DXA and/or QCT measurements of bone, particularly at the hip...
