Ipriflavone (IP) is one of the over-the-counter drugs and found in foods, which is available for prevention of osteoporosis (OP) since 1989 in over 22 countries. Although some clinical trials have suggested that IP is appropriate for treatment of OP, there continues to be controversy regarding the efficacy and safety due to some contradictory reports. With the wide usage of IP for osteoporotic women, there is a critical need for evaluation of the evidence for IP in clinical practice.

We searched randomized control trials (RCTs) in PubMed, CENTRAL and CNKI which used the regimen of IP in postmenopausal women with osteopenia or OP. The efficacy referred to the absolute change and relative change in bone mineral density (BMD) and bone turnover markers. The safety profiles were associated with adverse events and the number of subject withdrawals due to adverse reactions.
