Clodronate: A nitrogen-free bisphosphonate analog of naturally occurring pyrophosphate. Clodronate disodium inhibits osteoclastic bone resorption and hydroxyapatite crystal formation and dissolution, resulting in a reduction of bone turnover. This agent may control malignancy-associated hypercalcemia and inhibit osteolytic bone metastasis. (NCI04)
