Prolia Osteoporosis is diagnosed by BMD—bone mineral density test, the primary BMD test was dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA); a BMD test costs $50 per patient. Amgen priced Prolia at $825 per injection, or $1,650 per year. There is a total of 30.7 million people in the U.S. with osteoporosis or osteopenia, and 15.5 million (49%) were diagnosed, only a portion of that group received treatment. 40% of patients receiving treatment continued to see declining BMD levels, and 5% had fractures.
