Drug Names(s): Miacalcic, calcitonin-salmon

Description: Miacalcin nasal spray, like natural calcitonin, acts primarily by inhibiting osteoclasts, the cells that break down existing bone, thereby decreasing the rate of bone breakdown, allowing the body to build bone naturally. Calcitonin is a polypeptide hormone secreted by the parafollicular cells of the thyroid gland. Calcitonin derived from salmon is estimated to be about 30 times more potent than the human version.
