Description: Roche no longer reports revenue as of Q1 2013.

BONIVA (ibandronate sodium) is a nitrogen-containing bisphosphonate that inhibits osteoclast-mediated bone resorption. In osteoporosis, where osteoclasts break down bone too quickly, inhibition of this pathway has been shown to slow bone turnover, leading to not only an attenuation of turnover but also a mean increase in bone mass.

In 2003, the FDA approved once-daily Boniva. Boniva is indicated for the treatment and prevention of osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. The recommended dose of Boniva is 2.5 mg (oral tablet) once daily.

In March 2005, Boniva received approval in a new formulation, as a once-monthly oral tablet, with a recommended dosage of 150 mg on the same date each month.
