Strontium safety concerns

A review of available safety data for strontium ranelate (Protelos) has raised concern about its cardiovascular safety beyond the already recognised risk of venous thromboembolism. An analysis of randomised controlled trial data has identified an increased risk of serious cardiac disorders, including myocardial infarction (relative risk compared with placebo was 1.6 [95% CI 1.07–2.38]).
