New treatment for osteoporosis22nd June 2010
The National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence has released draft guidance which states that women with osteoporosis should be offered a new treatment called denosumab.
NICE said that post-menopausal women who did not respond to other treatments could be offered the drug. Dr Carole Longson, director of NICE's Health Technology Evaluation Centre, said: "Our independent appraisal committee felt that there was good-quality evidence to show that denosumab is a useful addition to the treatment options available to prevent a first fracture in women at increased risk and also at preventing further fractures in women who have already experienced one."
