Osteoporosis – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis (US)

A wide array of drugs are available to treat osteoporosis. These drugs are generally effective in reducing patients’ risk of fracture and are well tolerated. Oral bisphosphonates, especially alendronate, dominate first-line treatment, mainly because of the drug class’s widespread generic availability and physician familiarity. Branded agents like Amgen’s Prolia and Evenity, as well as Radius Health’s Tymlos, are reserved for high-risk patients, primarily because of their high prices. As the treatment landscape for osteoporosis continues to evolve, this report offers insight based on real-world claims data into prescribing trends to help new players understand current treatment practices and to define the market niche for their emerging products.
