Participants were normal postmenopausal women who were more than 5 yr postmenopausal and aged older than 55 yr. They were re-cruited between January and October 2005. Women with illnesses or receiving therapies likely to affect bone were ineligible, as were thosewith osteoporosis [bone mineral density (BMD) T score at lumbar spine Serum calcium, phosphate, albumin, and total alkaline phosphatase or total hip Յ Ϫ2.5] and those with any other major systemic disease or activity were measured on a modular autoanalyzer (Roche, Stockholm, contraindications to the use of thiazolidinediones.

Because recruitment made allowancefor dropouts, the number of completing subjects provides 80% power atthe 5% significance level to detect differences of at least 90% of 1 sdbetween the placebo and rosiglitazone arms. Sample-size calculationswere performed using PASS (NCSS and PASS number cruncher statis-tical systems, Kaysville, UT). Procedures of the statistical analysis systemSAS (version 9.2; SAS Institute Inc., Cary, NC) were used for all analyses.
All statistical tests were two tailed, and a 5% significance level wasmaintained throughout. All treatment evaluations were performed onthe principle of intention to treat. A mixed-models approach to repeatedmeasures was used to examine the time course of response in treatmentand control arms at baseline and at 2, 4, 8 and 14 wk. The correctcovariance structure was determined by likelihood ratio test (i.e. thefirst-order autoregression matrix was compared against an unstructuredcovariance matrix). Maximum likelihood imputation was used to ensureall the randomized patients could be included in the model (25). Theassumptions of normality of the dependent variable and residuals weretested by inspection and goodness of fit assessed by maximizing theAkaike information criterion. P values for significant main and inter-action (treatment by time) effects were constructed using the method ofTukey.
The baseline characteristics of the study subjects are shown in Table 1. At baseline, the only significant differencebetween the study groups was in serum osteocalcin, whichwas lower in the rosiglitazone group. Five of 25 subjects inthe placebo group and four of 25 subjects in the rosiglitazonegroup were taking calcium supplements at study inception;in each case the dose was unchanged during the study. Nosubjects took vitamin D supplements during the study. Com-pliance with study medication, as assessed by tablet counts,was 97% in the placebo group and 99% in the rosiglitazonegroup.
The effects of rosiglitazone on markers of bone turnover are shown in Fig. 2. Figure 2, A and B, shows the osteoblast-specific markers P1NP and osteocalcin. Each of these mark-ers of bone formation was stable in the placebo group anddeclined significantly in the rosiglitazone group. Overall,P1NP declined by 13% in the rosiglitazone group by 4 wk,and this effect was maintained for the remainder of the study(P for time ϫ treatment interaction ϭ 0.004).

the therapies commonly used to treat the disease may beincreasing that risk is a cause for concern. The increasing useof thiazolidinediones in other clinical conditions character-ized by insulin resistance (28, 29), including impaired glu-cose tolerance (30), is a further reason to fully characterizetheir long-term skeletal effects. We therefore suggest thatskeletal safety end points should be added to existing andplanned randomized trials of PPAR-␥ agonists so that theskeletal effects of thiazolidinediones can be studied over alonger period.
