Mechanism of action
Abaloparatide is a PTHrP(1-34) analog which acts as an agonist at the PTH1 receptor (PTH1R). This results in activation of the cAMP signaling pathway in target cells. In rats and monkeys, abaloparatide had an anabolic effect on bone, demonstrated by increases in BMD and bone mineral content (BMC) that correlated with increases in bone strength at vertebral and/or nonvertebral sites
- Injection: 3120 mcg/1.56 ml (2000 mcg/ml) in a single-patient-use prefilled Pen.
- The prefilled pen delivers 30 daily doses of 80 mcg abaloparatide in 40 Mcl of sterile, clear, colorless solution.

- Orthostatic hypotension: instruct patients to sit or lie down if symptoms develop after dose administration. (5.2)
- Hypercalcemia: avoid use in patients with pre-existing hypercalcemia and those known to have an underlying hypercalcemic disorder, such as primary hyperparathyroidism.
- Hypercalciuria and urolithiasis: monitor urine calcium if preexisting hypercalciuria or active urolithiasis are suspected.
Daily administration of TYMLOS to postmenopausal women with osteoporosis in clinical studies increased the bone formation marker serum procollagen type I N-propeptide (PINP). The increase in PINP levels peaked at Month 1 at 93% above baseline then decreased slowly over time. The increase in PINP was maintained above baseline throughout the treatment duration. At Month 18, PINP concentrations were approximately 45% above baseline.
