The third chapter in this section is dedicated to bone mineral density (BMD) changes
in patients with SpA. BMD has been investigated mainly in patients with AS. The
authors investigated BMD changes in AS and in other diseases belonging to the SpA
group – ReA (Reactive Arthritis), PsA (Psoriatic Arthritis), EnA (Entheropathic
Arthritis) - to assess the relationship between changes in BMD and specific disease-
related variables like duration, physical disability and immobility, activity of the
disease, and medications.

Bone is the major constituent of the skeleton which is a hallmark of all higher vertebrates.
Besides the protection of internal organs and the support of body structures,
the most important functions of bone are to serve as an attachment site for
muscles allowing locomotion and provide a cavity for hematopoiesis in the bone
marrow (Mendez-Ferrer et al. 2010; Zaidi 2007). Moreover, bone has a central role
in mineral homeostasis as it functions as a reservoir for inorganic ions that can be
mobilized rapidly on metabolic demand...
