Follow-up of Bone Quality in Long-Term Bone Marrow Transplant Survivors
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
Brittle and broken bones can occur after organ transplantation. However, the long-term effects of bone marrow transplantation on bone health and the risk of breaking bones are not well understood. This study will help to assess how common it is for those who have received a bone marrow transplant to have fractures. It will also investigate blood tests related to bone health. This will be done by measuring bone mineral density and obtaining blood tests.
