FDA Approves Expanded Use of Lilly's FORTEO(R) [teriparatide (rDNA origin) injection] to Treat Glucocorticoid-Induced Osteoporosis

"Until now, physicians and patients had only one class of approved therapy for the treatment of glucocorticoid-induced osteoporosis," said Kenneth G. Saag, M.D., MSc, professor of medicine and epidemiology at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. "The approval of teriparatide for this new indication offers healthcare providers and patients a new treatment option that effectively increases bone mineral density in a different way than anti-resorptives."

Label Updates

Since this new indication extends the use of FORTEO to patients with GIO who may be younger than those currently receiving the medication, Lilly has updated the language in the existing boxed warning section of the label regarding the risk of osteosarcoma to reinforce that FORTEO should not be used in pediatric and young adult patients whose bones are still growing.

In addition, due to the increased patient population, Lilly established a voluntary FORTEO Patient Registry to further evaluate the long-term safety of FORTEO. Osteosarcoma is a serious but rare cancer which occurs at a rate of about four cases per million people, per year. Osteosarcoma has been reported rarely in people who took FORTEO. It is not known if people who take FORTEO have a higher chance of getting osteosarcoma.
