Overview

Ipriflavone is a synthetic isoflavone which may be used to inhibit bone resorption,[1] maintain bone density and to prevent osteoporosis in postmenopausal women. It is not used to treat osteoporosis. It slows down the action of the osteoclasts (bone-eroding cells), possibly allowing the osteoblasts (bone-building cells) to build up bone mass.

A clinical trial reported in 2001 that it was not effective in prevention or treatment of osteoporosis.[2]

A double-blind study reveals that ipriflavone might be effective on reducing tinnitus on otosclerosis sufferers.[3]
