Most men with advanced prostate cancer have primarily skeletal metastases, which are responsible for most of the morbidity and mortality of prostate cancer. Recent evidence has demonstrated that anti-osteoclast therapy with bisphosphonates reduces skeletal-related complications in hormone-refractory prostate cancer.
Yes among other types of cancers Aredia can help.-
Mainly patients who have a cancer which has spread to the bones. Most often these are with breast cancer but it is sometimes recommended for patients with other types of cancer including prostate, lung and myeloma. It is most often given to patients where the cancer in the bone has caused pain or signs of weakness. It is particularly recommended if the level of calcium in the blood stream is raised.
I hope I have been of help.
All the best.-
