Forteo is a man-made (well, E. coli -made) recombinant parathyroid hormone that has an amino acid sequence identical to part of the human parathyroid hormone (PTH). Forteo was approved by the US FDA in 2001 as an osteoporosis drug. How does Forteo work? In the body, natural parathyroid hormone serves to regulate bone metabolism in many ways.
