Bone protective agents in children

Abstract

Evaluation of bone health in childhood is important to identify children who have inadequate bone mineralisation and who may benefit from interventions to decrease their risk of osteoporosis and subsequent fracture. There are no bone protective agents that are licensed specifically for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in children. In this review, we discuss the mechanism of action and use of bisphosphonates and other new and established bone protective agents in children.
