Further study details as provided by Sanofi:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare subject satisfaction rating in women treated for postmenopausal osteoporosis with Actonel® 35 mg Once-a-Week for 24 weeks, and receiving feedback information after 12 weeks of treatment to similar women monitored as per regular clinical practice

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Compare subject satisfaction with Actonel® 35 mg Once-a-Week in subject subgroups: previously treated with biphosphonates, HRT, raloxifene, fluoride, or calcitonin within past 2 years vs. those previously non treated

Enrollment: 2433
Study Start Date: February 2003
Study Completion Date: November 2004

Ages Eligible for Study:   18 Years and older   (Adult, Senior)
Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Women diagnosed with postmenopausal osteoporosis using community practice standards
  • Women previously non-treated for osteoporosis, OR treated for osteoporosis with biphosphonates (alendronate, etidronate), hormone replacement therapy estrogen, estrogen-related drugs, progesterone, subcutaneous estrogen implant), raloxifene, fluoride, or calcitonin within the past 2 years but discontinued prior to enrolment into the study either due to:lack of effect or intolerance

Exclusion Criteria:

  • Subjects treated with Actonelr 5 mg daily,
  • Mental condition rendering the subject unable to understand the nature, scope, and possible consequences of the study
