Ibandronic acid (INN) or ibandronate sodium (USAN), marketed under the trade names Boniva, Bondronat and Bonviva, is a potent bisphosphonate drug used in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis.[1]

It may also be used to treat hypercalcemia (elevated blood calcium levels). It is Marketed and Manufactured by GlaxoSmithKline and Roche Laboratories. Global sales in 2008 were 1.1B CHF ($1.0B USD at 01/01/2009 exchange rates).[2]


Medical uses

Ibandronate is indicated for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in post-menopausal women. Men should not take ibandronate unless they are participating in clinical trials[3]. In May 2003, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Ibandronate as a daily treatment for post-menopausal osteoporosis. The basis for this approval was a three-year, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial women with post-menopausal osteoporosis. Every participant also received daily oral doses of calcium and 400IUs [international units] of vitamin D. At the study's conclusion, both doses significantly reduced the occurrence risk of new vertebral fractures by 50–52 percent when compared to the effects of the placebo drug.

Adverse effects

In 2008, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a communication warning of the possibility of severe and sometimes incapacitating bone, joint and/or muscle pain.[4] A study conducted by the American Society of Bone and Mineral Research concluded that long term use of bisphosphonates, including Boniva, may increase the risk of a rare but serious fracture of the thigh bone.
