Study Population

Men with Prostate Cancer undergoing continued treatment with leuteinizing hormone-releasing hormone [LHRH] therapy

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Men
  • Age of 40 years or greater
  • Diagnosis of advanced prostate cancer (ie: prostate-specific antigen [PSA] less than 25 ug/L and undergoing continued treatment with leuteinizing hormone-releasing hormone [LHRH] therapy)
  • Willing and able to consent

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Metastatic disease to bone
  • Medications affecting bone turnover (bisphosphonate, steroids, anticonvulsant)
  • Renal failure (serum creatinine > 200 umol/L)
  • Co-morbidity factors affecting bone density (ie: Paget's, rheumatoid arthritis)
  • Factors affecting ability to perform the bone density tests using femoral head measurements (ie: bilateral hip arthroplasty)
  • Cancer other than skin, except when, in the investigators' opinion, it is determined to be appropriate and not adversely affect the outcome of the trial
  • Gastrointestinal (GI) pathology (eg. malabsorption syndrome)
  • Parathyroid disease
