Forteo Patient Registry Progress Page

At the conclusion of the study, 75,247 people had signed up to join the Forteo Patient Registry. Patient enrollment into the study is now closed.

When Will Results be Available?

A summary of the study progress, including the number of patients enrolled in the Registry and the incidence of osteosarcoma (which is based on the latest cancer registry linkage) was submitted to Eli Lilly and Company quarterly through the end of patient enrollment. The final study results were published in a medical journal in November 2020 (please see link to the article below). None of these reports provide identifying data on individual patients.
