Roche, GSK say FDA backs once-monthly bone drug
 
 
  WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has approved a monthly version of osteoporosis drug Boniva, Roche Holding AG and GlaxoSmithKline Plc said on Friday.
 
A daily version of the pill was first approved by the FDA in 2003, but the companies never launched the product as they explored a more convenient dosing for the medicine to treat brittle bones in post-menopausal women.
