Osteoporosis board


"Reclast" (zoledronic acid) was recently approved by the FDA for Paget's disease, and there are currently promising Phase III studies underway for use as an osteoporosis drug. I don't know whether "off label" use for osteoporosis is permitted now.

It is administered by spinal infusion, once per year. It is still a bisphosphonate, but the adverse effects were no more frequent than were experienced by placebo.
Hi Pika: Isn't reclast a iv infused med??? I never heard of a spinal infused med, would that be like an epidural maybe??:wave:
Oops, you're right. Reclast is I/V infusion. My mistake.
