What is Tymlos (abaloparatide) for?
Tymlos (abaloparatide) is a human parathyroid hormone-related peptide [PTHrP(1-34)] analog indicated for the treatment of postmenopausal women with osteoporosis at high risk for fracture1.
How does Tymlos (abaloparatide) work?
Abaloparatide is a PTHrP(1-34) analogue which acts as an agonist at the PTH1 receptor (PTH1R)1. In bone, the PTH1R is expressed on the surface of osteoblasts2, the cells that synthesize bone3. By attaching to these receptors abaloparatide activates important processes in target cells, which are expected to stimulate the increase of bone’s density and strength.
