OBJECTIVES: Bazedoxifene was found to be effective and well tolerated for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. This post-marketing surveillance study (PMSS) examined the safety of bazedoxifene in postmenopausal Korean women with osteoporosis, in a real-world setting.
METHODS: This PMSS was conducted from 2013 to 2017. A total of 3,423 subjects from 68 centers were enrolled and monitored for about 3 months (+/- 2 weeks). Bazedoxifene was prescribed at a dose of 20 mg/day. The safety of bazedoxifene was evaluated based on the number and nature of adverse events (AEs), serious AEs (SAEs), adverse drug reactions (ADRs) and serious ADRs (SADRs) in routine medical practice.
RESULTS: The mean age of study subjects was 69.51 years. The incidence of AEs and ADRs was 6.11% and 3.86%, respectively, and significantly decreased with increasing age (p= 0.0007). AE and ADR rates with bazedoxifene treatment of 3 months or more were significantly lower than those of less than 3 months (AE, 3.64% vs 30.00%, p < 0.0001; ADR, 1.74% vs 24.38%, p < 0.0001).
CONCLUSION: In this study, bazedoxifene was well tolerated in the management of postmenopausal osteoporosis in Korean women, including those aged 70 years or more.
