ATLANTA — In this video exclusive, E. Michael Lewiecki, MD, FACP, FACE, director of New Mexico Clinical Research and Osteoporosis Center in Albuquerque, discusses the new osteoporosis drug abaloparatide, a synthetic form of human parathyroid hormone-related protein, designed to stimulate bone formation without also stimulating as much bone resorption as other agents.Lewiecki reports that the number needed to treat to prevent one vertebral fracture with abaloparatide over 18 months is 28, which is a bit lower than the number needed to treat with teriparatide. In a higher-risk population, similar to that in the Fracture Intervention Trial of alendronate, the number needed to treat is 8, according to Lewiecki’s data.
