Body weight, body composition, and bone turnover changes in patients with spondyloarthropathy receiving anti-tumour necrosis factor alpha treatment
While, as mentioned above, I am not a fan of the TNF-alpha inhibitors, this article does once again show the strong link between inflammation and bone health. Use of TNF-alpha blockade three times in 6 weeks resulted in increased bone density of 5.6% at the spine in one year with a 50% reduction in urine markers of bone turnover within 3 months.
