Yes, Zometa (zoledronic acid - sometimes called zoledronate) is in a group of medicines called bisphosphonates. Bisphosphonates have proven to be very valuable in the treatment of osteogenesis imperfecta symptoms.
I have Osteogenesis Imperfecta type 1 and have had one Zometa infusion 6 months ago. It has helped immensely with my bone pain and I am getting another infusion in 3 days because I am feeling that it has worn off and am now in a lot of pain and getting more and more fractures. I got all of the side effects severely when I received my infusion but it was worth it.
