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

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...
OBJECTIVES: I. Determine the bioavailability and biologic effect of alendronate on bone metabolism in patients with cystic fibrosis. II. Assess the safety and efficacy of this treatment...
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...
Osteoporosis is found to have high prevalence after gastrectomy and therefore, it is important to prevent this condition by means of effective medication, such as alendronate sodium hydrate.
Vitamin D insufficiency is widespread in HIV-infected patients. HIV and/or antiretroviral therapy (ART), particularly efavirenz (EFV), may interfere with vitamin D metabolism. However, few data from r...
Vitamin D deficiency is frequent during the winter and occurs throughout the year in the elderly or patients suffering from autoimmune diseases. The objective of this study was to evaluate the pharmac...
Alendronate is an inhibitor of osteoclast-mediated bone resorption, but its clinical utility is limited due to gastrointestinal complications including bleeding erosions.
Bisphosphonates are the mainstay treatment for postmenopausal osteoporosis. Although bisphosphonates are safety drugs, they have numerous side-effects such as arthralgia, elevated erythrocyte sediment...
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.
Within medicine, nutrition (the study of food and the effect of its components on the body) has many different roles. Appropriate nutrition can help prevent certain diseases, or treat others. In critically ill patients, artificial feeding by tubes need t...
Osteoporosis is a disease in which the bones become extremely porous, are subject to fracture, and heal slowly, occurring especially in women following menopause and often leading to curvature of the spine from vertebral collapse. Follow and track&n...
