Table 4 Comparison of BMD measures (g/cm2) resulting in discontinuation to the previous measurement (n = 23 for spine and n = 19 for femur)

From: Adverse events, bone mineral density and discontinuation associated with generic alendronate among postmenopausal women previously tolerant of brand alendronate: a retrospective cohort study

BMD Score Measure after January 2006 resulting in discontinuation (g/cm2) Prior measure (g/cm2) Difference (p value of the test of difference)
Spine 0.756 0.813 -0.0534 (<0.001)
Femur 0.664 0.699 -0.0338 (0.01)
