A Less Intense Schedule of ZOMETA® for Patients with Metastatic Breast Cancer

August 8th, 2014

Bisphosphonates inhibit osteoclast-mediated bone resorption and both oral and IV bisphosphonates reduce the risk of developing Skeletal Related Events (SRE’s) and delay the time to SRE’s in patients with Breast Cancer with bone metastases. In a study presented at ASCO 2014 meeting, continuing ZOMETA® (Zoledronic acid) for an additional year at the every 12 week schedule was non-inferior to ZOMETA® given every 4 weeks, among patients who had initially received IV bisphosphonates monthly, for one year or longer. This less frequent dosing of ZOMETA® compared with the standard monthly dosing, may be more convenient for the patients and result in less toxicities without compromising efficacy.
