Effect of Sclerostin Inhibition on Cardiovascular Safety for the Treatment of Severe Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis is a skeletal disorder characterized by diminished bone strength that is responsible for an increased fracture risk. The glycoprotein sclerostin acts as an inhibitor of bone formation. Therapies directed against this molecule have been developed. A humanized antibody against sclerostin has been approved for the treatment of severe osteoporosis in postmenopausal women in many parts of the world. A recent review by Langdahl BL and colleagues sumarizes the current knowledge of the effect of sclerostin inhibition on cardiovascular safety.
