Abstract

A single 5-mg infusion of zoledronic acid restores biochemical markers of bone turnover into the reference range in the majority of patients with Paget's disease and maintains biochemical remission for at least 2 years. This effect is largely independent of pretreatment disease activity and prior bisphosphonate therapy.
