Urinary cross-linked N-telopeptide of type I collagen biomarker for diagnosis of osteoporosis and fracture risk assessment

Record ID 32010001392
Authors' recommendations: Urinary cross-linked N-telopeptide of type I collagen (NTx) is a biochemical marker of bone resorption. Urinary NTx can be measured noninvasively in the urine, and serum NTx can be quantified from blood. Urinary NTx has been recently proposed as an independent or complementary tool to bone mineral density measures to identify and assess the rate of bone loss, assess efficacy of osteoporosis treatment, predict fracture risk, and to enhance adherence to osteoporosis treatment.
