Watch for the New Osteoporosis Med, Romosozumab (Evenity)
You'll see some postmenopausal women admitted on the new osteoporosis med romosozumab (Evenity, ee-VEN-ih-tee).
Romosozumab is an injectable monoclonal antibody that blocks sclerostin, a protein involved in bone metabolism. This leads to increased bone growth AND decreased bone breakdown.
Other osteoporosis meds do one or the other.
