INDICATION

EVENITY® is indicated for the treatment of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women at high risk for fracture, defined as a history of osteoporotic fracture, or multiple risk factors for fracture; or patients who have failed or are intolerant to other available osteoporosis therapy. Read More

The anabolic effect of EVENITY® wanes after 12 monthly doses of therapy. Therefore, the duration of EVENITY® use should be limited to 12 monthly doses. If osteoporosis therapy remains warranted, continued therapy with an antiresorptive agent should be considered. Close

Nancy

Active and treatment naïve

Postmenopausal Osteoporosis History:

  • Was unaware that she sustained a vertebral fracture 2 months ago
  • Not currently being treated for osteoporosis
  • Current BMD: -2.59
  • BMD 2 years ago: -2.43

LEARN MORE ABOUT NANCY

Nancy never thought her back pain was the result of an osteoporosis-related vertebral fracture.1

Another fracture can impact patients like Nancy

Lifestyle:

  • Nancy is 65 years old, recently retired from teaching, and is on Medicare
  • She and her husband enjoy hiking now that they both are retired
  • But Nancy has been in constant pain from the undiagnosed fracture
  • When she visited her family practitioner, Nancy was shocked to learn the pain was from a vertebral fracture
  • She worries that another fracture could limit their future hiking adventures

Since Nancy is at the highest risk for fracture in the year after her first one, she is looking for a treatment that will rapidly build strong new bone within 12 months.

Patients like Nancy don't always know their pain could be connected to a fracture. It's important to discuss with postmenopausal osteoporosis patients their risk of fracture and treatment options.

Betsey

Fractured while on a bisphosphonate

Postmenopausal Osteoporosis History:

  • Prescribed a bisphosphonate 12 months ago after a vertebral fracture
  • Recently suffered a wrist fracture even though she takes the bisphosphonate as prescribed
  • Current BMD: -3.31
  • BMD 2 years ago: -3.47

Hypothetical patient

SEE BETSEY'S FULL STORY

Betsey's osteoporosis-related fracture is an indicator that her bones have deteriorated.2

After a fracture, many women like Betsey are concerned about suffering from another2

Lifestyle:

  • At age 71, Betsey recently lost her husband and currently lives alone
  • She takes care of her 4-year-old twin grandchildren while their parents work, and she loves traveling
  • Betsey is worried what an additional fracture could mean
  • Her doctor wants to prescribe a bone builder

Betsey's first fracture was soon followed by another, and she now needs a bone-building treatment that can decrease her risk of another fracture.

Having a second fracture while being treated for osteoporosis can be confusing and frightening. This is a good time to talk with patients like Betsey about the possibility of transitioning to a bone-building treatment.

The 2020 AACE/ACE guidelines state EVENITY® should be considered as initial therapy for patients with any of the following: 3

  • Recent fracture (within the last 12 months)
  • Fractures while on osteoporosis therapy
  • Multiple fractures
  • Fractures while on drugs causing skeletal harm
  • T-score (eg, < −3.0)
  • Very high fracture probability by FRAX®(eg, major osteoporotic fracture > 30%, hip fracture > 4.5%)
  • High risk for falls or history of injurious falls
EVENITY® is FDA approved for the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at high risk for fracture

High risk for fracture is defined in the EVENITY® Prescribing Information as a history of osteoporotic fracture, or multiple risk factors for fracture; or patients who have failed or are intolerant to other available osteoporosis therapy.

AACE = American Accociation of Clinical Endocrinologists;
ACE = American College of Endocrinology; FRAX® = fracture risk assessment tool; MOF = major osteoporotic fracture;
PMO = postmenopausal osteoporosis.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

POTENTIAL RISK OF MYOCARDIAL INFARCTION, STROKE, AND CARDIOVASCULAR DEATH
EVENITY® may increase the risk of myocardial infarction, stroke and cardiovascular death. EVENITY® should not be initiated in patients who have had a myocardial infarction or stroke within the preceding year. Consider whether the benefits outweigh the risks in patients with other cardiovascular risk factors. Monitor for signs and symptoms of myocardial infarction and stroke and instruct patients to seek prompt medical attention if symptoms occur. If a patient experiences a myocardial infarction or stroke during therapy, EVENITY® should be discontinued.
