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.
Information provided by (Responsible Party):
Merck Sharp & Dohme Corp.
  Purpose
The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that treatment with odanacatib will result in increased BMD (bone mineral density) compared to treatment with placebo. This study will also evaluate the safety and efficacy of odanacatib for male osteoporosis patients.

Condition Intervention Phase
Osteoporosis Drug: Odanacatib Drug: Placebo for Odanacatib Phase 3

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Participant, Investigator)
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: A Phase III Randomized, Placebo-Controlled Clinical Trial to Assess the Safety and Efficacy of Odanacatib (MK-0822) in the Treatment of Men With Osteoporosis Treated With Vitamin D and Calcium

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent change from baseline in lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 24 ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Percent change from baseline in total hip, femoral neck, and trochanter BMD [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 24 ]
  • Log-transformed fraction of baseline serum C-Telopeptides of Type 1 collagen (s-CTx) and urine N-Telopeptides of Type 1 collagen (u-NTx) [ Time Frame: Baseline and Month 24 ]

Enrollment: 294
Study Start Date: June 2010
Study Completion Date: July 2013
Primary Completion Date: July 2013 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Odanacatib
In addition to study drug, all participants will receive a weekly dose 5600 IU of open-label Vitamin D3. Participants will also receive a sufficient supply of open-label calcium carbonate so that their total daily calcium intake from both dietary and supplemental sources is approximately 1200 mg.
Drug: Odanacatib
One 50 mg tablet once weekly
Other Name: MK0822
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
In addition to study drug, all participants will receive a weekly dose 5600 IU of open-label Vitamin D3. Participants will also receive a sufficient supply of open-label calcium carbonate so that their total daily calcium intake from both dietary and supplemental sources is approximately 1200 mg.
Drug: Placebo for Odanacatib
One 50 mg tablet once weekly

Detailed Description:
The original study was divided into two parts, with the primary analysis of endpoints to occur at 24 months and the patients will then remain in the study for an additional 12 months (Part 2). Amendment 1 of the protocol removed the additional 12 month period and the Month 36 BMD analysis was deleted.
