Further study details as provided by Amgen:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence of clinically significant hypocalcemia, defined as albumin-adjusted Ca < 7.0mg/dL or symptomatic hypocalcemia [ Time Frame: 113 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]

Secondary Outcome Measures:
  • Incidence and severity of hypocalcemia, hypomagnesemia and hypophosphatemia as determined by CTCAE v.4.0 criteria [ Time Frame: 113 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Laboratory values of albumin-adjusted calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus and their changes compared to baseline [ Time Frame: 113 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Adverse events including clinically significant changes in vital signs, physical examinations, clinical laboratory tests, ECGs; [ Time Frame: 113 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: Yes ]
  • Serum denosumab and C-telopeptide (CTx) concentrations [ Time Frame: 113 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • Incidence of seroreactivity (or antibody positivity) [ Time Frame: 113 days ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
