Study Start Date: April 2006
Study Completion Date: September 2009
Primary Completion Date: September 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo dose
Drug: Placebo comparator
oral weekly for one year
Experimental: Risedronate
35 mg risedronate, orally, once weekly
Drug: risedronate
35 mg risedronate, once a week for one year

Detailed Description:
The 3D-pQCT equipment allows the evaluation of changes occurring within the bone at "microarchitecture" level, without the need for invasive bone biopsies. The primary objective is to evaluate the sensitivity of the technology to detect a difference between those treated with risedronate 35mg OAW (once a week) or placebo. Early phase postmenopausal women with osteopenia have been chosen because they have a more rapid and higher level of bone loss during the first few years of the menopause.
  Eligibility

Ages Eligible for Study:   40 Years to 55 Years   (Adult)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No
Criteria

Inclusion Criteria:

  • cessation of menstruation (surgical or natural) between 6 and 36 months prior to study enrollment;
  • osteopenic
  • must have at least 1 evaluable radius and tibia, without history of fracture (traumatic or atraumatic)
  • BMI (body mass index) between 18 and 28 kg/m2 inclusive;

Exclusion Criteria:

  • history of any generalized bone disease, including hyperparathyroidism, Paget's disease of bone, renal osteodystrophy, or any other acquired or congenital bone disease; or any known condition that would interfere with the assessment of DXA (dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry) at either the lumbar spine (3 non-evaluable lumbar vertebrae at lumbar spine L1 - L4) or the femoral neck.
  • clinical or radiological evidence of osteoporosis, such as atraumatic vertebral compression fracture (* 20% reduction in anterior-to-posterior or middle-to-posterior height ratio; or 20% reduction of the anterior, middle, and/or posterior height as compared with the adjacent vertebrae) documented by spinal X ray or a history of osteoporosis-related atraumatic fracture of the hip or of the wrist;
  • glucocorticoid-induced osteopenia;
  • previous bisphosphonate therapy;
