Does Reclast protect against breast cancer?


Question from BCar: Does Reclast have the same possible protection from breast cancer as Fosamax and Actonel?
Answers - Kathy D. Miller, M.D. Both Reclast (chemical name: zoledronic acid) and Actonel (chemical name: risedronate) are in the same class of drugs called bisphosphonates, but they have not been directly compared, so there is no data to allow us to answer your question.

On Tuesday, December 15, 2009, our Ask-the-Expert Online Conference was called Updates from the 2009 San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium. Kathy Miller, M.D. and Kristin Brill, M.D., F.A.C.S. answered your questions about the latest updates on breast cancer risk, screening techniques, treatment options, and more.
