Introduction: Ibandronate

Description of Ibandronate

Ibandronate: A synthetic nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate. Ibandronate inhibits farnesyl pyrophosphate synthase, resulting in a reduction in geranylgeranyl GTPase signaling proteins and apoptosis of osteoclasts. This agent increases bone mineral density, decreases bone remodeling, inhibits osteoclast-mediated bone resorption, and reduces metastases-related and corticosteroid-related bone pain. (NCI04)
