Juliet Compston, MD, FRCP, of the University of Cambridge School of Clinical Medicine and Addenbrooke's National Health Service Trust, in Cambridge, United Kingdom, points out in an accompanying editorial2 that "although a direct comparison with other treatments cannot be made in the absence of head-to-head studies of fracture outcome, the magnitude of effect appears to be at least similar to and possibly better than (in the case of vertebral fractures) that reported for other interventions."

 

There is a definite niche for this drug, she writes. "Intravenous zoledronic acid may be particularly appropriate in women who get admitted to the hospital with a fracture (especially a hip fracture) for whom the first infusion could be given during their hospital stay, " she writes.

The results support the case against routine monitoring during the early years of treatment, according to an accompanying editorial by Juliet Compston, professor of bone medicine at the University of Cambridge, in England. She said that when changes in bone mineral density are used to monitor treatment, people may be given inappropriate advice.

 

"Routine monitoring of bone mineral density during the first few years of antiresorptive treatment cannot be justified because it may mislead patients, lead to inappropriate management decisions and waste scarce health care resources," she concluded.
