The Forteo Patient Registry (FPR) aims to estimate the incidence of osteosarcoma in US patients treated with teriparatide. Enrollment began in 2009 and will continue through 2019, with linkage planned through 2024. To date, no incident cases of osteosarcoma have been identified among patients registered in the FPR.
The Forteo Patient Registry (FPR) was established in 2009 to estimate the incidence of osteosarcoma in US patients treated with teriparatide. The objective of this paper is to describe study methods, challenges encountered, and progress to date.
The FPR is a prospective US registry designed to link data from participants annually with state cancer registries. Patient enrollment is planned for 10 years (2009–2019) and annual linkage with US state cancer registries for 15 years (2010–2024). All US state cancer registries and DC were invited to participate. Patients are recruited using pre-enrollment materials included in teriparatide device packaging, kits, and brochures distributed by health-care providers; a toll-free number; and a study website. A linkage algorithm is used to match data from enrolled participants with cancer registry data.
For the eighth annual linkage in 2017, information necessary for linkage with 63,270 patients in the FPR was submitted to each of the 42 participating registries. These patients contributed approximately 242,782 person-years of follow-up. A total of 5268 adult osteosarcoma cases diagnosed since January 1, 2009, were available for linkage from participating state cancer registries. To date, no incident cases of osteosarcoma have been identified among patients registered in the FPR.
Based on the estimated 242,782 person-years of observation as of the eighth annual linkage and projecting current enrollment rate to study end in 2024, it is anticipated that the completed study will be able to detect a fourfold increase in the risk of osteosarcoma if one exists.
