Subject: "Prolia"

Message Body:
Prolia injections are being recommended for my wife who has been diagnosed with severe osteoporosis.  I have seen conflicting accounts as to whether this medication was developed using cells from an aborted child.  Do [you] have any information on this drug, or could you point me in the right direction for that information…thanks.


The confusion is understandable, since some, but not all, monoclonal antibody medications are created with or developed using fetal cell lines.
According to , Denosumab is a human monoclonal IgG2 antibody produced in a mammalian cell line (Chinese hamster ovary cells) by recombinant DNA technology. So, it does not appear to be created on the cell lines of aborted children.
However, the use of fetal cell lines in testing done to develop the medicine is less clear.  Mice this was tested on are ‘transgenic,’ combined with human cells.  There is some question whether those cells are infant or adult.  If you search ‘Prolia” in the comments of the preceding link, there is a fairly technical discussion of that question.
You are to be commended for caring for the lives of these innocents!
God bless!
