Mechanism of action
OSTEREPAR - an inhibitor of bone resorption. Sodium elendronate is a bisphosphonate, a synthetic analogue of pyrophosphate that binds bone hydroxyapatite. Being a non-hormonal specific inhibitor of osteoclast activity, it prevents bone resorption. Does not affect the formation of bone tissue. Stimulates osteogenesis, restores a positive balance between resorption and restoration of bone. Progressively increases bone mineral density (regulates phosphoric-calcium metabolism), promotes the formation of bone tissue of normal composition and structure.
Indications and usage
Treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in order to prevent spinal and hip fractures.
- anomalies of the esophagus and other factors impeding the patency of the esophagus (including achalasia, stricture);

- severe violations of mineral metabolism;
- hypersensitivity to the drug.
