INTRODUCTION

ZOLDRON 4MG contain zoledronic acid which belongs to a group of medicine called bisphosphonates. It is used to prevent bone complications such as fractures, bone metastases in adult patients and helps in reducing the amount of calcium in the blood in a condition called tumour-induced hypercalcaemia (TIH) in adult patients.
