Annual zoledronic acid for osteoporosis.
Drug Ther Bull. 2008 Dec; 46(12):93-6.DT

Abstract

Zoledronic acid (Aclasta - Novartis) is the first bisphosphonate to be licensed in the UK as a once-yearly intravenous treatment for women with postmenopausal osteoporosis. Promotional materials claim that the drug "provides powerful osteoprotection with yearlong compliance", with "significant 3 year fracture reduction at all key sites". Here we consider whether zoledronic acid has a role in the treatment of women with postmenopausal osteoporosis.
