Brief description of study

Could you have thinning bones or osteoporosis?

Detailed Study Description

Osteoporosis is a disease in which bones become thin and weak causing them to break more easily. It is often called a "silent disease" because there are no symptoms; you can't feel your bones becoming weak.

You may be at risk if you…

  • Are over 50 years old
  • Are postmenopausal
  • Have low body weight (<125 lbs.)
  • Smoke
  • Had a past fracture of the hip, spine, or wrist (especially since menopause)
  • Have a family history of osteoporosis or hip, spine, or wrist fracture (in a postmenopausal female relative)
  • Did you know?
    You may be able to participate in a 36 month research study of an investigational medication for osteoporosis if you...

    • Are past menopause
    • Have low bone density or osteoporosis
    • Are over the age of 65

    Qualified participants will receive study-related clinic evaluations, bone mineral density scans, a spine x-ray (to assess bone health), as well as the investigational study medication and Vitamin D and Calcium supplementation at no charge.
