Odanacatib (MK-0822) is a potent, orally active and selective inhibitor of Cathepsin K with IC50 value of 0.20 nM [1],

Cathepsin K is expressed predominantly in osteoclasts and degrades the collagen matrix componentsofbone. It plays a central role in mediating bone resorption. And the inhibitor of cathepsin K, Odanacatib, is in development for the treatment of osteoporosis. Based on preclinical evidence and available clinical data from dose-ranging phase IIB trials, odanacatib appears to reduce bone resorptionwhile somewhat preserving bone formation in postmenopausal

Women. Currently, Odanacatib is undergoing evaluation for fracture risk reduction in a phase III trial with >16000 patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis [2].
