Phase III Randomized Study of the Effect of Postmenopausal Estrogen Replacement Therapy on Alveolar Bone Loss
OBJECTIVES: I. Quantify periodontal alveolar bone loss rates in postmenopausal women.
II. Evaluate the effects of estrogen on alveolar bone loss rates in these patients.
III. Determine whether changes in periodontal bone mass relate to bone mass changes in other skeletal sites in these patients.
PROTOCOL OUTLINE: This is a randomized, double-blind, placebo controlled study. Patients are randomly assigned to receive placebo or conjugated estrogens and, if no prior hysterectomy, medroxyprogesterone. Patients also receive calcium supplementation therapy daily for 3 years.
Participants in the placebo group may be removed from study if bone loss exceeds 5% per year.
A study duration of 3 years is anticipated.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study, Masking: Double-Blind, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Estrogens, Conjugated (usp)
A pharmaceutical preparation containing a mixture of water-soluble, conjugated estrogens derived wholly or in part from URINE of pregnant mares or synthetically from ESTRONE and EQUILIN. It contains a sodium-salt mixture of estrone sulfate (52-62%) and equilin sulfate (22-30%) with a total of the two between 80-88%. Other concomitant conjugates include 17-alpha-dihydroequilin, 17-alpha-estradiol, and 17-beta-dihydroequilin. The potency of the preparation is expressed in terms of an equivalent quantity of sodium estrone sulfate.
Reduction of bone mass without alteration in the composition of bone, leading to fractures. Primary osteoporosis can be of two major types: postmenopausal osteoporosis (OSTEOPOROSIS, POSTMENOPAUSAL) and age-related or senile osteoporosis.
A nonhormonal medication for the treatment of postmenopausal osteoporosis in women. This drug builds healthy bone, restoring some of the bone loss as a result of osteoporosis.
Compounds that interact with ESTROGEN RECEPTORS in target tissues to bring about the effects similar to those of ESTRADIOL. Estrogens stimulate the female reproductive organs, and the development of secondary female SEX CHARACTERISTICS. Estrogenic chemicals include natural, synthetic, steroidal, or non-steroidal compounds.
(6 alpha)-17-Hydroxy-6-methylpregn-4-ene-3,20-dione. A synthetic progestational hormone used in veterinary practice as an estrus regulator.
The purpose of this research study is to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of this investigational drug for the treatment of menopausal symptoms while protecting the endometrium (uteri...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether bazedoxifene/conjugated estrogens combinations are effective for the prevention of endometrial hyperplasia and for the prevention of osteo...
The primary purpose is to determine bioavailability of Bazedoxifene/conjugated estrogen formulations for future testing purposes.
This study involves the experimental drug bazedoxifene acetate/conjugated estrogens (also called BZA/CE). This drug is not approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). About 24 sub...
The purpose of this clinical trial is to study the blood levels of a drug (conjugated estrogens) in the body from one dosage form compared to another. The four formulations of the study dr...
Hormone therapy classically consists of an estrogen with an added progestin; however, concerns have been raised about the potential negative effects of progestin. The recent realization that estrogen...
INTRODUCTION: Epilepsy and menopause have complicated interactions. Treatment of epilepsy may cause exacerbation of osteoporosis and alter the effects of hormone replacement therapy (HRT) whereas HRT...
Menopause occurs on average at age 51.4 years. Most, but not all, women who undergo menopause experience significant vasomotor symptoms (VMS). Although single agent estrogen therapy can relieve VMS, o...
We examined the association between new-onset breast tenderness and change in mammographic density after initiation of conjugated equine estrogens (CEE). We analyzed baseline, year 1 and 2 data from 6...
In this study, the simultaneous extraction of estrone (E1), 17beta-estradiol (E2), estriol (E3), ethinylestradiol (EE2), and their glucuronated and sulfated metabolites in milk was optimized using sol...
