Denosumab Demonstrates Superiority Over Zometa(R) in Delay of Complications Due to Bone Metastases in Advanced Breast Cancer Patients
Date:9/22/2009

cent in breast and prostate cancer patients.

With bone metastases the growing cancer cells weaken and destroy the bone around the tumor. The damage the tumor has caused to the bone can result in a number of serious complications, collectively called SREs. These include fracture of a bone, the need for radiation to bone, the need for bone surgery, or spinal cord compression. All are serious complications for advanced cancer patients.

The economic burden of United States (U.S.) patients with bone metastases is significant and was estimated to be $12.6 billion last year.(4) Patients with bone metastases who experience an SRE incur significantly higher medical costs compared with those who do not experience an SRE.(5)
