What is Lasofoxifene?

Lasofoxifene (OporiaŽ) is a selective estrogen receptor modulator (SERM) under development for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and for the treatment of vaginal atrophy.

Osteoporosis affects some 8 million American women. An additional 22 million women are estimated to have low bone mass, placing them at increased risk of osteoporosis. In the U.S., osteoporosis is responsible for more than 1.5 million fractures per year.

Vaginal dryness becomes increasingly more common throughout the menopausal transition. SERMs may offer benefits beyond just the bone effects provided by other treatment options, such as bisphosphonates.
