This microarchitecture is not to be confused with uarch.

While the term ‘uarch’ is used in computer engineering, orthopedecians will speak about Osteoporosis, which is a disease of bone in which the bone mineral density (BMD) is reduced; bone microarchitecture is disrupted, and the amount and variety of non-collagenous proteins in bone is altered.

A reduction in BMD is correlated with Estrogen deficiency following menopause.

Are you wondering what I am getting at? I am perturbed by a news about the victims of fosamax, which is a medicine manufactured by Merck to treat Osteoporosis.

But an unfortunate side effect was observed by those who have taken fosamax, a bisphosphonates drug. It is believed that Fosamax and other similar bisphosphonate drugs may cause osteonecrosis of the jaw by blocking the normal reproduction of bone cells.

Osteonecrosis of the jaw (ONj) is also commonly referred to as "dead jaw" and “fossy jaw”.

Of course various treatment options have been explored, however severe cases of ONj still require surgical removal of the affected bone and this involves additional expenditure and mental strain for the patients.

They sought remedy through legal action and they were recommended to approach Parker & Waichman, LLP, a leader in defective pharmaceutical litigation and personal injury law firm that represents plaintiffs nationwide.
