Osteoporosis is a huge health risk for not just thousands, but millions of people in in the United States. The drugs currently available help prevent bone loss, but they do nothing to build bone. This new one does. The FDA approved romosozumab (brand name Evenity) this week on Tuesday. The clinical trials showed increases in the bone density of participants, which translates to more protection from fractures in osteoporotic patients.
