Bisphosphonates are a class of drugs, structurally similar to pyrophosphate, that inhibit osteoclast-mediated bone resorption by binding with high affinity to the hydroxyapatite crystals of bone mineral. Bisphosphonates are used in the therapy of a range of metabolic bone diseases, notably osteoporosis, and as bone-imaging agents.
