Disease relevance of Aminohexane

  • This study assessed the efficacy of 200 mg of aminohexane bisphosphonate (neridronate) administered by intravenous infusion in a single dose or in two separate doses on consecutive days in 32 patients (16 males and 16 females, average age 66 years) affected by active Paget's disease of bone [1].
  • We conclude that aminohexane bisphosphonate is an effective agent in the treatment of tumour-induced hypercalcaemia, with rapid onset of effect and low toxicity [2].
