The US Drug Watchdog says, "The Foamax mess involving women taking an osteoporosis drug, and then getting a out of the blue femur break, is so counterintuitive, we don't think most middle aged, or older women would consider it a possibility. It is for this reason we want family members of women, who suffered an out of the blue femur break, to ask if their loved one was using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax." The group says, "In the instance of Fosamax, we are talking about women, whose...

Successful testing in mice paves the way toward human trials for patients with osteoporosis A research team led by UC Davis Health System scientists has developed a novel technique to enhance bone growth by using a molecule which, when injected into the bloodstream, directs the body's stem cells to travel to the surface of bones.

Findings could lead to a screening test Researchers at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine have identified a genetic variation that raises the risk of developing serious necrotic jaw bone lesions in patients who take bisphosphonates, a common class of osteoclastic inhibitors. The discovery paves the way for a genetic screening test to determine who can safely take these drugs. The study appears in the online version of the journal The Oncologist.

The US Drug Watchdog says, "Its hard to comprehend what it might be like for a middle aged, or older woman, who was taking the Osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, who had an unexplainable broken femur, or thigh bone, and then had to have a surgical procedure, that involved reinforcing the broken femur, or thigh bone with a metal rod; but that is exactly what has happened to many women. We are doing everything possible to identify victims of Fosamax, who have had a broken femur, or thigh bone,...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "It sounds counterintuitive, that a drug supposedly devised to fight osteoporosis could also be associated with women, who suffered an out of the blue broken femur bone. However, when it comes to the osteoporosis called Fosamax, that is exactly what we are saying. We are also saying we need family members, or loved ones of women, who suffered an out of the blue femur break to ask if the woman was also using the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax." The US Drug Watchdog...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "We intend to make femur breaks and the osteoporosis drug Fosamax one of our top initiatives in 2012. In the instance of Fosamax, we are talking about women, whose leg simply broke; they did not fall, they did not run into something, their femur, or upper thighbone simply broke. We need to identify every woman in the United States, who had been using, any type of osteoporosis drug, or the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax for at least five years, and then for some...

The US Drug Watchdog says, "In the instance of Fosamax, we are talking about women, whose leg simply broke. They did not fall, they did not run into something, their femur bone simply broke. We need to identify every woman in the United States, who had been using Fosamax for at least five years, and then for some unexplained reason they suffered a broken femur, or what is called an atypical thigh fracture." The US Drug Watchdog is urging family members, or loved ones of women, who have...

The US Drug Watchdog is urging family members, or loved ones of women, who have suffered an out of the blue femur break, or broken thigh bone, to ask the woman if she was using osteoporosis drug called Fosamax, at the time of the break.
