GnRH Analogues therapy of estrogen-dependent gynaecological diseases aims at suppression of physiologic cyclic ovaric function producing a hypogonadotropic condition. The first consequence of GnRH Analogues administration is hypoestrogenism; this condition permits the disease regression but, on the other, it causes a negative impact on bone metabolism particularly for prolonged therapeutic schemes (6 months). This study has evaluated the faculty of bone mass protection combining GnRH Analogues therapy with Ipriflavone that stimulates, both 'in vivo' and 'in vitro', Osteoblastic cells activity. The result of this study showed a significant bone loss in patients treated with GnRH Analogues only. The Ipriflavone association prevented bone loss.
