Abstract

Reduced bone mineral density (BMD) and increased rates of atraumatic fracture are observed in cystic fibrosis (CF) patients, causing increasing morbidity as this population ages. The study aimed to assess the safety, tolerability and effect on BMD of intravenous zoledronate in adults with CF and osteopenia.
