Update to previous Blog.
As reported by Matt Robinson’s Prescribing adviser blog, Zoledronic acid (AclastaR) has been approved in Europe for the treatment of osteoporosis in post-menopausal women at increased risk of fracture. The summary of product characteristics has been updated to reflect this license extension.
