A Study of the Bioequivalence of 70 mg Alendronate and 70 mg Alendronate in Combination With 2800 IU Vitamin D
This study will evaluate the bioequivalence of alendronate in combination with vitamin D (cholecalciferol) compared to alendronate alone and the bioequivalence of vitamin D in combination with alendronate compared to vitamin D alone.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Endpoint Classification: Bio-equivalence Study, Intervention Model: Crossover Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
alendronate sodium (+) cholecalciferol, Comparator: alendronate, Comparator: cholecalciferol (Vitamin D)

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions
Hydroxy analogs of vitamin D 3; (CHOLECALCIFEROL); including CALCIFEDIOL; CALCITRIOL; and 24,25-DIHYDROXYVITAMIN D 3.
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.
Derivatives of ERGOSTEROL formed by ULTRAVIOLET RAYS breaking of the C9-C10 bond. They differ from CHOLECALCIFEROL in having a double bond between C22 and C23 and a methyl group at C24.
Derivative of 7-dehydroxycholesterol formed by ULTRAVIOLET RAYS breaking of the C9-C10 bond. It differs from ERGOCALCIFEROL in having a single bond between C22 and C23 and lacking a methyl group at C24.
A lipid cofactor that is required for normal blood clotting. Several forms of vitamin K have been identified: VITAMIN K 1 (phytomenadione) derived from plants, VITAMIN K 2 (menaquinone) from bacteria, and synthetic naphthoquinone provitamins, VITAMIN K 3 (menadione). Vitamin K 3 provitamins, after being alkylated in vivo, exhibit the antifibrinolytic activity of vitamin K. Green leafy vegetables, liver, cheese, butter, and egg yolk are good sources of vitamin K.
To demonstrate the efficacy/safety of Fosamax Plus D
This study seeks to demonstrate that additional gain in bone mineral density (BMD) can be achieved by switching to MK5442 from an oral bisphosphonate in patients who have been receiving or...
A study designed to see if the study drug will increase blood levels of vitamin D, bone mineral density, improve biochemical markers of bone turnover, and reduce the number of falls as com...
To compare upper GI handling of fosamax and generic, because the main AE profile of alendronate is before systemic absorption in the esophagus; differences could be relevant to the side ef...
Alendronate is a drug that is used to treat osteoporosis. The purpose of this study is to examine whether alendronate in combination with calcium and vitamin D is safe and effective for tr...
Determination of alendronate is crucial to routine quality control of alendronate tablets. However, tedious sample treatment processes such as derivatization were generally required by chromatographic...
We aimed to evaluate the vitamin D status, the effect of cholecalciferol supplementation, and the factors associated with vitamin D restoration in nondialytic patients with chronic kidney disease (CKD...
This study was performed to compare the mucosal findings after esophagogastroduodenoscopy in two groups before and after the use of alendronate only and following administration of the enteric-coated...
To conduct a literature review on sodium alendronate, focusing on osteonecrosis of the jaws, a serious potential side effect.
An increasing number of generic alendronate formulations have become available. Although expected to have the same tolerability and efficacy, head-to head comparison of generic and brand alendronate w...
