Risedronic acid A bisphosphonate used to treat osteoporosis and Paget's disease. Etidronic acid A bisphosphonate drug that prevents osteoclastic bone resorption; used for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. Denosumab A RANK ligand (RANKL) inhibitor used for the management of osteoporosis in patients at high risk for bone fractures. Salmon calcitonin A synthetic peptide form of calcitonin used to inhibit bone resorption in the treatment of hypercalcemia, osteoporosis, and Paget's disease. Calcitriol An active metabolite of vitamin D that is used to treat hyperparathyroidism and is also used in dialysis patients to combat hypocalcemia. Calcifediol An active metabolite of vitamin D used to treat hyperparathyroidism as well as to combat hypocalcemia in dialysis patients. Ergocalciferol A vitamin found in many supplement products. Cholecalciferol A form of Vitamin D used in the treatment of specific medical conditions such as refractory rickets, hypoparathyroidism, and familial hypophosphatemia, as well as osteoporosis and chronic kidney disease. Raloxifene A selective estrogen receptor modulator that is used to prevent and treat osteoporosis and reduce the risk of invasive breast cancer in high-risk postmenopausal women. Toremifene A first generation nonsteroidal selective estrogen receptor modulator used to treat certain breast cancers. Ibandronate A bisphosphonate used to treat osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. Paricalcitol A vitamin D analog used to treat hyperparathyroidism associated with stage 3 or greater chronic kidney disease. Dihydrotachysterol A synthetic analog of vitamin D that does not require renal activation like vitamin D2 or Vitamin D3. Tiludronic acid A bisphosphonate used for the treatment of Paget's disease of bone. Alfacalcidol A vitamin D analogue used for the management of hypocalcemia, secondary hyperparathyroidism, and osteodystrophy in patients with chronic renal failure. Incadronic acid Incadronate has been investigated in the treatment of myeloma,[A14426,A14431] leukemia, and other cancers. It has also been investigated in patients with hypercalcemia of malignancy. Teriparatide A recombinant parathyroid hormone used for the treatment of osteoporosis. Bazedoxifene A selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) used to treat moderate to severe vasomotor symptoms in menopause and osteoporosis alone or in combination with conjugated estrogens. Doxercalciferol A synthetic vitamin D2 analog used to treat secondary hyperparathyroidism in patients with chronic kidney disease with or without therapy of dialysis. Strontium ranelate A medication used for the management of severe osteoporosis in high-risk postmenopausal women and adult men. Vitamin D An ingredient found in a variety of supplements and vitamins. Human calcitonin Human calcitonin is indicated for the treatment of Paget's disease in the cases where the use of salmon calcitonin may provoke the generation of high-titer of antibodies. Paget's disease is... Calcitonin porcine Calcitonin is a polypeptide hormone secreted by the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland in mammals. It inhibits bone resorption and lowers both serum and urinary calcium concentrations. Human calcitonin...

Eldecalcitol Investigated for use/treatment in osteoporosis. Nandrolone decanoate An anabolic steroid indicated for the management of the anemia of renal insufficiency by increasing hemoglobin and red cell mass.
