Further study details as provided by Novartis:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • To compare in a randomized fashion the effect of zoledronate and pamidronate 90 mg on pain relief as assessed by pain score after 1-dose treatment in patients with bone pain induced by any solid tumors with bone metastases or Multiple Myeloma

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Changes in bone markers (urinary N-telopeptide/creatinine ratio, urinary C-telopeptide/creatinine ratio).
