What is Teriparatide Injection?

This medication is designed to reinforce and replenish bone loss due to osteoporosis.

Teriparatide Injection is a medication designed to assist in building new bone, and is comprised of protein similar to one naturally produced by the body. It has also been shown to help increase bone strength.*

*Only proven in postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.

Teriparatide Injection helps to reinforce bone by replacing—and replenishing—that which has been lost due to osteoporosis.

Postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, who were at high risk for fracture, experienced significantly increased bone mineral density in the spine, after taking Teriparatide Injection with calcium and vitamin D. These results were demonstrated at three months, and throughout the treatment period.

The risk of new spine fractures was reduced by approximately two thirds; the risk of new fractures in other bones—including the ankle/foot, hip, upper arm, pelvis, ribs and wrist—was cut in half.ǂ

ǂThis clinical study involved 1,637 postmenopausal women with osteoporosis, of whom 90% had a spine fracture. 541 women took a daily 20-mcg dose of Teriparatide Injection; 544 took a placebo for a median time of 19 months, and a maximum of 24 months. All women took calcium and vitamin D daily.
