Percent Change From Baseline in Lumbar Spine Bone Mineral Density (BMD) at 12 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 Months ]
Bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine was assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). BMD values are corrected data and have been standardized across the machine types (Hologic and Lunar). Analyses were performed using ANCOVA model and least square (LS) means were adjusted for baseline BMD values as a covariate and pooled site and treatment as fixed effects.

Complete list of historical versions of study NCT01011556 on ClinicalTrials.gov Archive Site
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Lumbar Spine Bone Mineral Density (BMD) at 6 Months [ Time Frame: Baseline, 6 Months ]
    Bone mineral density (BMD) of the lumbar spine was assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA). BMD values are corrected data and have been standardized across the machine types (Hologic and Lunar). Analyses were performed using ANCOVA model with the baseline value as a covariate and pooled site and treatment as fixed effects.
  • Time Course Change of BMD Response at the Lumbar Spine [ Time Frame: Baseline to 6 Months and 12 Months ]
    To assess the time course of the treatment, the BMD data of the lumbar spine was assessed by dual energy X-ray absorptiometry (DXA) and analyzed using a mixed model repeated measures (MMRM) method, with the repeated measure occurring at each visit (for example, 6 and 12 month). BMD values are corrected data and have been standardized across the machine types (Hologic and Lunar).
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Procollagen Type 1 N-Terminal Propeptide (P1NP) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 Month, 3 Months, 6 Months, 12 Months ]
    Procollagen Type 1 N-Terminal Propeptide (P1NP) is a marker of bone formation.
  • Percent Change From Baseline of C-Terminal Telopeptide (CTX) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 Month, 3 Months, 6 Months, 12 Months ]
    C-terminal telopeptide is a marker of bone resorption.
  • Percent Change From Baseline in Serum Procollagen Type 1 C-Propeptide (P1CP) at 1 Month [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 Month ]
    Procollagen Type 1 N-Terminal Propeptide (P1NP) is a marker of bone formation.
  • Convenience/Ease of Use Questionnaire (CEUQ) [ Time Frame: baseline up to 12 months ]
    CEUQ consists of 5 sections and 16 questions using a 5-point Likert scale designed to collect measures for ease of use (S1), convenience of use (S2), confidence of use (S3), fear of use (S4), and overall satisfaction with therapy (S5). CEUQ is not a validated instrument.
  • Change in Serum Calcium With and Without Adjustments for Serum Albumin From Predose to After 4 and 6 Hours [ Time Frame: Baseline, 12 Months ]
    Serum calcium adjusted for serum albumin levels is calculated using the following formula: Total Calcium + [(40 - albumin) x 0.02]. Analysis for serum calcium and albumin adjusted serum calcium were collected at predose, 4 hours (h) post-dose (PD) and 6 h PD at baseline and 12 months (mon).

  • Pharmacokinetics Parameters: Area Under the Curve (AUC) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 Month, 3 Months, and 12 Months ]
    Due to high intra-subject variability, data was not analyzed for this outcome measure.
  • Pharmacokinetics Parameters: Maximal Concentration (Cmax) [ Time Frame: Baseline, 1 Month, 3 Months, 12 Months ]
    Due to high intra-subject variability, data was not analyzed for this outcome measure.

A Study for the Transdermal Application of Teriparatide
A Phase 2 Study for Transdermal Application of Teriparatide

The primary purpose of this study is to help answer the following research questions:

  1. How teriparatide given using a skin patch (transferred through the skin using the ViaDerm Teriparatide System) compares to teriparatide injected under the skin with a needle (pen injector) affects your bone density (how solid or porous your bones are).
  2. The safety of the teriparatide skin patch and any side effects that might be associated with it.
Teriparatide 20 micrograms (mcg) per day is currently only available as a subcutaneous (SQ) injection and many patients with severe osteoporosis for whom anabolic therapy with teriparatide is appropriate are either unwilling or physically unable to self-inject. The purpose of this Phase 2 study is to identify a transdermal dose or doses that will be comparable to the teriparatide 20 mcg SQ dose from a pharmacodynamic (PD) and safety standpoint for use in future Phase 3 studies.
