How effective are Bonoteo tablets 1 mg for osteoporosis from Japan?

Thus, Bonoteo tablets inhibit osteoclastic bone resorption, 1000 times more effective than etidronic acid and 10 to 100 times more effective than alendronic acid. This medicine decreases the incidence rate of new vertebral and nonvertebral fractures. In other words, it is effective for preventing bone fracture.
