Hello Ulli, I had never heard about Clodronate, so I looked it up on Google. Clodronate seems to be used to protect from bone mets. I read in the New England Journal of Medicine that this is a drug widely used in Europe for 15 years. There is no FDA approval for it here in the US. This was an interesting article and told of a bone marrow test that would find cancer cells and proved 75% of women with BC would have their cancer spread to bone. That was not very encouraging to read and I hope the article's writer is incorrect.
