Discussions that mention zoledronic

Bone Disorders board


Hi,

I had six inufsion of Pamidronate about 3 years ago. It helped initally but it stop working after that.

There are recent studies with respect to Boniva and Zoledronic Acid which are very promising. These drugs are infused in 15mins every six months and have less renal implication that Pamidronate.

Boniva is available in US and most countries except Canada.

HTH,

Ali

Have you heard of infliximab. My daughter has been offered this mixed with methtrexate.
