Zolendronate, How Drug Works, American Cancer Society:"Zolendronate stops cancer cells from breaking down bone, thus stopping the calcium in the bone from going into the blood. It also seems to stop the cancer cells from growing in the bone, so it prevents new cancer spots in the bone. It may stop blood vessels from forming, so the cancer cells stop growing."
