Drug therapy in osteoporotic fractures


Many therapeutic agents are currently available for osteoporotic fractures prevention, and their efficacy has been demonstrated in several clinical studies. Major evidences derive from randomized controlled trials or meta-analyses in which vertebral, non-vertebral and hip antifracture effect was tested. Here we summarize the principal data about drugs currently registered in Italy for the treatment of osteoporosis.
