Bone Death
Nov 14, 2006

What is the most effective treatment(s) for bone death? Is the medication, Forteo, a possible treatment?

Response from Dr. Henry

Forteo is approved for osteoporosis (loss of calcium from bone) but not for osteonecrosis (bone death). Ostepororis may be increased in patients with HIV so interventions to reverse that process are being evaluated with some early studies showing benefit similar to the general population (such as alendronate).
