I am wondering what is the quality of bone matrix. Is there excessive mineralization in the process of stopping the bone resorption? Is the medicine a substatined released form or how does it last one year long?

You should know that bone medicines may cause the gradual decay of bones over time, according to research. Also, medical products like hip replacements (e.g. DePuy hip replacement) may deteriorate and completely fail in the long run. This results to health complications, listed on this website http://www.depuyhipreplacementlawsuit.com .

New medication is continuing to be made readily available to the public. If this type of medication was available even a few years ago, many Fosamax lawsuits may have been avoided.

Aclasta is another brand name for Zolendronic acid which is a drug similar to the drug Fosamax which are both biphosphonates. Zolendronic acid however has the distinction of having a highr risk of causing more rare and severe complications compared to Fosamax. Be careful when taking this drug. http://fosamaxbonefractures.pbworks.com/w/pag...

This looks positive but I am still not over about Fosamax being a bone drug and causing fractures.

Aclasta may hold much promise especially to patients who have been trying to avoid disabling and painful fractures. Some patients who have been prescribed of Fosamax may have had a different fate. Reports of fractures from some Fosamax users have been evident after using it for a really time. http://www.fosamax-lawsuit.net/femur-fracture... may have relevant information that may be of great help.

This may sound good news to individuals who are suffering from bone mass problems. However, people should be aware that Fosamax, a widely-prescribed
bone drug, is reported to be causing jawbone death and unusual femur fractures in
women. For more information, you may refer at http://www.fosamaxinjurylawsuitcenter.com .

These types of medications may provide benefits to reduce osteoporosis and bone loss complications but some studies have shown that these types of medication also carry serious health risks if taken for long period of time. If taken longer than five years they could be cause of abnormal bone fractures, and jaw bone death. To learn more about this read all about it here, http://www.fosamaxclassaction.us/femur-fractu...
