Aristopharma has launched Adronic 4 Injection, a preparation of Zoledronic Acid BP.

The active ingredient in Adronic is Zoledronic Acid, which belongs to a group of medicines called bisphosphonates. It is an inhibitor of osteoclast mediated bone resorption. The action of bisphosphonates on bone is based on their high affinity for mineralized bone. Intravenously administered Zoledronic Acid is rapidly distributed to bone. Zoledronic Acid is not metabolized and is excreted unchanged via the kidney.
