CHICAGO -- Abaloparatide, a synthetic analog of human parathyroid hormone-related peptide, displayed jaw-dropping superiority to teriparatide in boosting bone mineral density at multiple anatomic sites in a head-to-head, placebo-controlled phase II study.
Parathyroid hormone (PTH 1-84) or the PTH fragment (hPTH 1-34), teriparatide, have been shown to be potent anabolic agents that stimulate osteoblastic bone formation (peaks within 3-6 months and is maintained for 18-24 months) and reduce vertebral and non-vertebral fracture risk.
