Amgen Announces Results From Several New Exploratory Analyses Evaluating Long-Term Impact Of Treatment With Prolia (Denosumab) In Postmenopausal Women WithOsteoporosis


 

Date: 16/09/2014


Amgen (NASDAQ:AMGN) and UCB (Euronext Brussels:UCB)  announced results from several exploratory analyses of the Phase 2 study evaluating romosozumab in postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density (BMD). Romosozumab is an investigational bone-forming agent that is designed to work by inhibiting the protein sclerostin, thereby increasing bone formation and decreasing bone breakdown. These data were presented at the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) 2014 Annual Meeting in Houston, Sept. 12-15, 2014.

"Fractures or broken bones due to osteoporosis are very common and often have a life altering impact on an older woman and her family," said Michael McClung, M.D., director of the Oregon Osteoporosis Center. "It is encouraging to see that treatment with romosozumab for a second year provided additional increases in bone mineral density beyond what was seen during the first 12 months of treatment."
