    Abstract

    Metastasis to bone is an important cause of morbidity in advanced prostate cancer. Despite the typically sclerotic nature of prostatic bone metastases osteolysis has a significant role in the pathogenesis of this disease. The nitrogen containing bisphosphonates (N-BPs), such as pamidronate and zoledronic acid, have greatly enhanced potency for inhibiting bone resorption and inducing apoptosis in osteoclasts. We investigated the effects of N-BPs on prostate cancer cells.
