Bisphosphonates

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes.

Bisphosphonates are drugs that inhibit mineralization or resorption of the bone by blocking the action of osteoclasts.
