Mission Pharmacal Conducts Online Survey of Osteoporosis Patients
Date:1/15/2014

ission Pharmacal. "When we launched BINOSTO, we knew that many osteoporosis patients had difficulty swallowing pills or tablets. What we learned from this survey is that even patients who can tolerate pills still want an alternative, such as a buffered solution like BINOSTO."

According to the National Osteoporosis Foundation, 9 million people in the United States have osteoporosis and another 43 percent have low bone density. Without treatment, their bones weaken and become fragile, making them more likely to break. Ultimately, one in two women and one in four men with osteoporosis will break a bone after the age of 50.

Alendronate sodium provides fracture-risk reduction at the hip and spine and increases bone density. Until recently, it was available only in pill form. BINOSTO is formulated with the same 70 mg of alendronate sodium as other standard alendronate weekly therapies, yet it is delivered in a tablet that dissolves in water.

"Broken bones, especially in older adults, can lead to disability and even death," says Recker. "Between 20 and 25 percent of people with hip fractures will die within a year of the fracture. Of those who survive, nearly half will require help with activities of daily living.

"Many people make lifestyle changes to reduce their risk of cancer and heart disease, yet they
don't realize that osteoporosis is a common and potentially fatal disease," says Recker. "If having treatment options improves compliance, we can help more people treat osteoporosis."
