FDA Broadens US Indication for Once-Yearly Reclast(R) as Only Osteoporosis Treatment Approved for Prevention of Fractures After a Hip Fracture
Date:6/5/2008

- Revised label includes data showing 35% reduction in new clinical

fractures in patients treated with Reclast following a recent hip

fracture(1) - Few patients currently receive osteoporosis treatment following hip

No other osteoporosis treatment has demonstrated a reduction of new clinical fractures in patients who have recently had a low-trauma hip fracture (e.g., due to a fall from standing height or less)(1). A clinical fracture is defined as a composite endpoint of skeletal sites excluding finger, face and toe.

The FDA decision is based on safety and efficacy data from the landmark Recurrent Fracture Trial, published in The New England Journal of Medicine, showing a significant 35% reduction in the risk of new clinical fractures in patients treated with Reclast(3).

Saag, MD, MSc, Professor of Medicine and Epidemiology, Division of Clinical Immunology and Rheumatology, University of Alabama at Birmingham.
