Research Study Summary
Could you have thinning bones or osteoporosis?
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.)
- 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.
