Abstract

A variety of new treatments for osteoporosis have become available within the last several years, and a number of emerging treatments remain in late clinical stage development. New and emerging treatments include more potent members, or more convenient formulations, of existing classes of therapy, but a number of the emerging treatments are first-generation compounds addressing specific therapeutic targets based on recent advances in understanding of basic bone biology. These new and emerging treatments include agents with anticatabolic effects, compounds with anabolic effects, and one agent possibly containing both anticatabolic and anabolic effects. The increasing variety of new and emerging treatments increases the possibility that effective therapy will be targeted to the specific needs of the individual patient.
