Combination of two osteoporosis drugs increase bone density

(May 14, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Boston - Combining two osteoporosis drugs increases bone density better than single drug therapy, according to a report published in the Lancet. Researchers studied 100 postmenopausal women considered to be at high risk of bone fractures. Participants were randomized to receive injections of denosumab every six months, daily injections of teriparatide, or both regimens combined. Results of blood tests and bone density analysis revealed that individuals who received the combination therapy showed much greater improvement in bone density than those who received single-drug therapy.
