Further study details as provided by Sanofi:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Determine whether subject knowledge of baseline vertebral fracture prevalence and awareness of results of bone turnover marker (BTM)determinations would result in an increase in persistence with Actonel 5 mg daily therapy [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Evaluate relationship between prevalence of vertebral fractures and duration of prior steroid therapy, amount of prior steroid therapy, and diagnosis of disease for which steroids were used [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • To evaluate the correlation between baseline vertebral fracture prevalence and subject persistence with Actonel 5 mg daily [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Evaluate influence of Actonel 5 mg on BTM determinations and bone mineral density(BMD) at study finish relative to baseline [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects with a variety of rheumatologic, pulmonary, and skin conditions.
  • Subjects were to be on oral glucocorticoids with a mean daily dose of greater than or equal to 5.0 mg prednisone (or its equivalent) and were expected (although not required) to remain on a daily dose of greater than or equal to 5.0 mg prednisone (or its equivalent) for 12 months after the study started.
  • Women must have been at least one year post-menopausal or surgically sterile.
  • Subjects must have had evaluable BMD site at the lumbar spine (LS) and proximal femur.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subject's unwillingness to take Vitamin D, calcium supplements or study medication
  • A history of cancer: any history of cancer within the past 5 years. Relatively benign skin malignancies, such as basal cell carcinoma or squamous cell carcinoma, are not an exclusion if the subject has been in remission for at least 6 months prior to enrollment.
  • A history of hyperparathyroidism, hyperthyroidism or osteomalacia or other metabolic bone disease within one year prior to enrollment
  • History of alcohol or drug dependence within one year of enrollment
  • A history of using any of the following medications within 6 months of starting study drug: Estrogen or estrogen-related drugs (tamoxifen, raloxifene, tibolone); low dose vaginal estrogen (estradiol < 0.2 mg/day, estropipate < 1.5 mg/day) will be allowed,Anabolic steroids,Parathyroid hormone
  • A history of using any of the following medications within 1 month of starting study drugor for more than 1 month within 6 months prior to study entry: Calcitonin,Vitamin D supplements (>1000 IU per day),Calcitriol (>1.5mcg/week)
  • A history of using any of the following medications within 6 months of starting study drug or for more than 14 days within 1 year prior to study entry: Any bisphosphonate,Fluoride (> 10 mg per day),Estrogen implant,Deflazacort
  • Have received a depot injection of > 10,000 IU Vitamin D in the past 12 months
  • Have a documented history of an abnormal or allergic reaction to bisphosphonates
  • History of recurrent nephrolithiasis or a history of one episode of nephrolithiasis within 5years of study entry
  • Severe renal impairment (creatinine clearance of <30 mL/min)
  • Subjects on steroid therapy for transplantation
  • Subjects on oral glucocorticoids for >8 weeks but <6 months at screening
  • History of hypersensitivity to the investigational product or to drugs with similar chemical structures
  • Clinically relevant cardiovascular, hepatic, neurological, endocrine, or other major systemic disease making implementation of the protocol or interpretation of the study results difficult
  • Mental condition rendering the subject unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the study
