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...
Scope: Adequate vitamin D status is necessary and beneficial for health, although deficiency and insufficiency are very common. As cholecalciferol (vitamin D(3) ) structure is close to cholesterol str...
Scope: It is assumed that vitamin D is absorbed by passive diffusion. However, since cholecalciferol (vitamin D(3) ) and cholesterol display similar structures, we hypothesized that common absorption...
BACKGROUND: Generic alendronate was approved in the United States on February 6, 2008. Medicare beneficiaries might pay for generic alendronate out-of-pocket without having claims submitted, resulting...
Background: Bisphosphonate-associated osteonecrosis (BON) of the jaw is a growing concern in the dental community, but the possible presence of residual bisphosphonates in demineralized allograft bone...
