  • Written informed consent.
  • With histologically-proven prostate carcinoma.
  • ECOG performance status ≤ 2
  • Life expectancy > 12 months
  • Current or previously documented diagnosis of at least 1 bone metastasis due to prostate cancer (patient could be hormono naif, Hormono sensible or hormono refractory)
  • Patients with partners of childbearing potential should use a barrier method of contraception throughout the study.

Exclusion Criteria:

  • ECOG performans status >3
  • Prior treatment with bisphosphonates IV within the last 3 month to the study
  • Renal insufficiency (serum creatinine > 265 micromol/L or > 3.0 mg/dL)
