Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Marker of Bone Metabolism, PINP [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    PINP, N-terminal propeptide of type I procollagen, is a marker of anabolic bone growth.

  • Change in Bone Mineral Density, Total Spine. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Total analyzable spine bone mineral density (BMD) was analyzed by DXA at Week 24.


Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Change in Bone Mineral Density, Femoral Neck. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Femoral neck bone mineral density (BMD) was analyzed by DXA at Week 24.

  • Change in Bone Mineral Density, Total Hip. [ Time Frame: 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Total analyzable hip bone mineral density (BMD) was analyzed by DXA at Week 24.

  • Change in Bone Mineral Density, Total Spine. [ Time Frame: 12 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Total analyzable spine bone mineral density (BMD) was analyzed by DXA at Week 48.

Detailed Description:

This is a randomized, parallel-group, multi-center, dose-finding study to evaluate the effects of BA058 in the treatment of otherwise healthy postmenopausal women with osteoporosis.

  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   55 Years to 85 Years
Genders Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Primary Inclusion Criteria:

  • The patient has a bone mineral density T-score ≤ 2.5 at the lumbar spine or hip (femoral neck) by dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DXA). Women with a bone mineral density T-score of 2.0 or lower and a prior low-trauma forearm, humerus, vertebral, sacral, pelvic, hip, femoral, or tibial fracture within the past 5 years, or who have an additional risk factor such as age 65 or greater or a strong maternal history of osteoporosis defined as a fracture related to osteoporosis or osteoporosis itself as determined by BMD criteria, are also study candidates.
  • The patient is in good general health as determined by medical history and physical examination and is without evidence of clinically significant abnormality in the opinion of the Investigator.

Primary Exclusion Criteria:

  • History of bone disorders (e.g., Paget's disease) other than postmenopausal osteoporosis.
  • Prior treatment with approved or as yet unapproved bone-acting investigational agents.
  • History of carcinoma, nephrolithiasis or urolithiasis within the past five years or osteosarcoma at any time.
  • History of radiotherapy (radiation therapy).
