Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Written informed consent must be obtained
  • Age > 18 years
  • Histologically confirmed diagnosis of carcinoma of the prostate
  • Current (or previous) objective evidence of metastatic disease to the bone
  • Currently receiving 1st line hormonal therapy with LHRH agonists or other hormonal treatments
  • ECOG performance status of 0, 1, or 2

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Patients with abnormal renal function as evidenced by either a serum creatinine determination 1.5 x or greater above the upper limit of normal or by a calculated creatinine clearance of 60 ml/minute or less
  • Corrected (adjusted for serum albumin) serum calcium concentration < 8.0 mg/dl (2.00 mmol/L)
  • WBC<3.0x1'000'000'000, ANC < 1500/mm3, Hgb<8.0 g/dL, platelets < 75 x 1'000'000'000/L.
  • Liver function tests >2.5 ULN, serum creatinine >1.5 ULN.
  • Patients with another nonmalignant disease which would confound the evaluation of primary endpoints or prevent the patient complying with the protocol.
  • Known hypersensitivity to zoledronic acid or other bisphosphonates
  • Subjects who, in the opinion of the investigator, are unlikely to cooperate fully during the study

Other protocol-defined inclusion / exclusion criteria apply.
