The aim of the presentpreliminary study was to investigate whether bone mass recovery due to olpadronate (OPD) treatment isaffected by Vitamin D status- i.e. normal or insufficiency, using OVX rats with established osteopenia. Atotal of 16 female Wistar rats (280-300 g) were OVX: 8 rats were fed a synthetic diet that covered alladequate requirements (+VitD); 8 rats were housed under red light and fed the same synthetic diet lackingof Vitamin D (-VitD). During 60 days rats lost approximately 15% of bone mass, after that (To) 8 rats of+VitD group and all rats of -VitD group received during a 45-day period (Tf) 16ug OPD/100g rat weekly.Simultaneously, 8 OVX and 8 SHAM rats were fed the synthetic diet throughout the study and onlyreceived placebo treatment. Bone mineral density (BMD) (mg/cm2), 25OHvitamin D (ng/ml), bonealkaline phosphate (mUI/ml) and serum CTX (ng/ml) were assessed at To and Tf and tibiahistomorphometry was made at Tf. (Table).Different letters indicated a p<0.05. Bone recovery by OPDtreatment was greater in +VitD than in -Vit D. At Tf sCTX was lower and 25OHVitD was higher than in-VitD group. The +VitD group presented greater bone volume and lower erosive surface than -VitDgroup. Conclusion: These results suggest that OPD effects may be less beneficial in vitamin D deficientstate.
