Many more eligible for bisphosphonates after NICE lowers threshold to 1%


Give us the vital piece of info... NNT. Presumably in those with a risk of 1% this is going to be some multiple of 99. Do you think treating, say, 500 patients with a bisphosphonate for 10 years to prevent one fracture is the way forward?
