Breast cancer and osteoporosis are two of the most frequent diseases in women. Estrogen may be associated with bone loss and the risk of breast cancer because of its potent effects on the mitotic activity of breast epithelium and on bone turnover.
This study is will assess the safety and efficacy of Zoledronic acid 4 mg, given every 3 months over 24 months, in improving bone mineral density in premenopausal women with hormone receptor negative breast cancer and adjuvant chemotherapeutic treatment compared to placebo.
This study is not recruiting patients in the United States.
