Date:4/3/2012

ring from osteoporosis, there is a serious patient need for therapeutics that help build bone.  Amgen and UCB are collaborating on the development of CDP7851/AMG 785 for the treatment of bone-related conditions, including postmenopausal osteoporosis and fracture healing.

About Postmenopausal Osteoporosis

Osteoporosis is the most common disorder of bone metabolism. Osteoporosis, or porous bone, is a chronic, progressive and systemic disease marked by low bone mass, deterioration of bone tissue and low bone strength, leading to bone fragility and an increased risk of fractures. The rate of bone loss is accelerated in women during and after the menopause as a result of estrogen deficiency associated with the loss of ovarian function at menopause. The risk of fracture increases exponentially with age. The prevalence of osteoporosis is estimated to be 64.6 million people in the seven major markets; women are four times more likely than men to develop osteoporosis.
