Please note, this OEL/ADE monograph also applies to risedronate sodium (CAS RN 115436-72-1). Risedronate is indicated to treat various forms of osteoporosis and Paget’s disease. Risedronate binds to bone hydroxyapatite, and at the cellular level, inhibits osteoclast activity, thereby modulating bone metabolism. Although the osteoclasts adhere normally to the bone surface, they show evidence of reduced active resorption by the lack of ruffled border. Risedronate is an antiresorptive agent. It has an affinity for hydroxyapatite and acts by inhibiting osteoclast-mediated bone resorption. The osteoclasts adhere normally to the bone surface, but show evidence of reduced active resorption (for example, lack of ruffled border). Animal studies showed that risedronate treatment reduces bone turnover (activation frequency or the rate at which bone remodeling sites are activated) and decreases bone resorption at remodeling sites.
