This sounds very dangerous and makes me rethink about using this osteoporosis drug. http://www.fosamaxfemurfracturelawsuit.com

While this is promising, especially with how serious malaria is to treat, I hope that any drug that comes from biphosphonates be tested thoroughly before it is prescribed to patients with a mind for the side-effects that biphosphonates already known for. http://fosamaxsideeffects.blinkweb.com/

It's good to know that many researchers and scientists never cease to explore many possible treatments to different diseases. However, some patients are disheartened to take medicines due to the risks that they normally carry. This site http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/updates/3-d-pr... may have added information involving promising osteoporosis treatments that don't involve medications.

I think it's a good thing that chemically altered osteoporosis medication is used to treat malaria. But with more research and understanding hopefully they can make the drugs safer to prescribe compared to bisphosphonates when they were orignally used. http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/femur-fractu...
