In trials Ablaoparatide Thymus was shown to reduce fracture risk by both increasing bone mass and increasing bone mineral density as well as bone quality.
Unlike some of the bisphosphonates on the market the new bone that developed as a result of this drug showed no onherent weakenss... nor was it likely to fracture.
As you probably know many of the other bisphosphonates, such as Fosamax, Actonel and Boniva increased bone density but the new bone that was formed, after taking one of these drugs , was of poor quality. As a result this the new bone sometimes fractured or crumbled. Conditions such as Osteronecrosis of the jaw developed in some who had taken the drug.
Abaloparatide(Thymos) does not appear to have that problem. This is good news for those who are concerned about fractures as a result of their excessive bone loss. It is important to talk things over with your health care provider before taking this drug. Because it is new on the market, we may not be aware of possible unintended consequences of using this drug to increase bone density. Remember that the drug is made from animal tissue, not chemicals. Some may be concerned that if the animal involved had other issues, they could be passed on. Please, be sure to discuss ALL your concerns with your medical provider before you start taking this drug.
Abaloparatide Thymos is manufactured by Radius Health. It is only approved for women with severe Osteoporosis - those who have already suffered a fracture. (I am not sure why this restriction was put in place. I assume because of potential side effects ) administered once daily by a subcutaneous (just below the skin) injection into the periumbilical region (the part of the stomach right around the belly button).
