Abstract

Raloxifene, a selective estrogen receptor modulator, is currently used for both prevention and treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis. Recent data from the MORE (Multiple Outcomes of Raloxifene Evaluation) trial have evaluated health-related quality of life, 1-year clinical vertebral fracture reduction, and the correlation of bone mineral density and biochemical markers of bone turnover with vertebral fracture reduction. In addition, new information on the effects of raloxifene in breast cancer prevention, cardiovascular disease in high-risk women, and uterine disorders is reviewed.
