- efficacy and feasibility of Calcitriol 45 μg [ Time Frame: 12 weeks ]
To collect data on the efficacy and feasibility of Calcitriol 45 μg for maintaining proper bone health among invasive breast cancer patients for a period of 12 weeks.
To collect preliminary data on the effect of Calcitriol 45 μg on bone resorption, as measured by Cross-Linked N-Telopeptide of Type I collagen (NTx) in invasive breast cancer patients over the course of 12 weeks.
To collect preliminary data on the effect of Calcitriol 45 μg on markers of bone formation, as measured by bone-specific alkaline phosphatase (BAP) in invasive breast cancer patients over the course of 12 weeks.
