Study shows Actonel® reduces vertebral fracture risk 70 percent in patients on chronic steroid therapy
Bisphosphonates Recommended by American College of Rheumatology (ACR) for Glucocorticoid-Induced Osteoporosis (GIO). Vertebral fracture risk in men and women who take oral glucocorticoid treatment (> 7.5 mg/day prednisone or equivalent) for chronic diseases is significantly reduced with Actonel® (risedronate sodium tablets) 5 mg in just one year, according to data presented today at the 66th Annual Scientific Meeting of the American College of Gastroenterology in Las Vegas.
