The US Drug Watchdog says, "It sounds counterintuitive to think a drug like the osteoporosis drug called Fosamax could be a contributing factor in a incredibly painful, out of the blue femur break, but that is exactly what we are saying. 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 unexplained reason, they suffered a broken femur, thighbone or what is...

The Rottenstein Law Group, which represents clients with claims stemming from the severe side effects of the drug Fosamax, is cautiously optimistic about the possibility that a new process will improve bone growth. New York, NY (PRWEB) February 14, 2012 According to a press release from the University of California, “[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...

Physical exercise in the early twenties improves bone development and may reduce the risk of fractures later in life, reveals a study of more than 800 Swedish men carried out at the Sahlgrenska Academy at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden. The strength of our bones is determined early in life. The more bone mass we put on when young, the smaller the risk of fractures as we grow older. Previous research has shown that exercise before and during puberty is particularly important for bone...

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...

When William Murphy works with some of the most powerful tools in biology, he thinks about making tools that can fit together. These constructions sound a bit like socket wrenches, which can be assembled to turn a half-inch nut in tight quarters, or to loosen a rusted-tight one-inch bolt using a very persuasive lever. The tools used by Murphy, an associate professor of biomedical engineering and orthopedics and rehabilitation at University of Wisconsin-Madison, however, are proteins, which...

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. Once these cells are guided to the bone surface by this molecule, the stem cells differentiate into bone-forming cells and synthesize proteins to enhance bone...

New study shows aggressive screening for osteoporosis may be important for heart failure patients Heart failure is associated with a 30 percent increase in major fractures and also identifies a high-risk population that may benefit from increased screening and treatment for osteoporosis, according to a recent study accepted for publication in The Endocrine Society's Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism (JCEM). Osteoporosis and heart failure are common, chronic and costly...

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,...
