Re-treatment of Patients With Paget's Disease Using Zoledronic Acid
The purpose of this study is to demonstrate that patients with Paget's disease of the bone who had responded to zoledronic acid treatment as participants in the core registration studies CZOL446K2304 and CZOL446K2305 and later experienced a relapse can be successfully treated with a 5mg infusion of zoledronic acid.

Paget's Disease, Mammary
An intraductal carcinoma of the breast extending to involve the nipple and areola, characterized clinically by eczema-like inflammatory skin changes and histologically by infiltration of the dermis by malignant cells (Paget's cells). (Dorland, 27th ed)
The eight bones of the wrist: SCAPHOID BONE; LUNATE BONE; TRIQUETRUM BONE; PISIFORM BONE; TRAPEZIUM BONE; TRAPEZOID BONE; CAPITATE BONE; and HAMATE BONE.
Fibrous Dysplasia Of Bone
A disease of bone marked by thinning of the cortex and replacement of bone marrow by gritty fibrous tissue containing bony spicules, producing pain, disability, and gradually increasing deformity. Only one bone may be involved (FIBROUS DYSPLASIA, MONOSTOTIC) or several (FIBROUS DYSPLASIA, POLYOSTOTIC). (From Dorland, 28th ed)
A 20-carbon branched chain fatty acid. In phytanic acid storage disease (REFSUM DISEASE) this lipid may comprise as much as 30% of the total fatty acids of the plasma. This is due to a phytanic acid alpha-hydroxylase deficiency.
An anti-inflammatory analgesic and antipyretic of the phenylalkynoic acid series. It has been shown to reduce bone resorption in periodontal disease by inhibiting CARBONIC ANHYDRASE.
HORIZON TOP will study the effect of zoledronic acid given once as an iv infusion compared to 60 days of oral risedronate in patients with Paget's disease of bone. The effect will be demo...
The primary objective of this study was to show non-inferiority of zoledronic acid to risedronate, with respect to the proportion of patients who achieved therapeutic response.
The purpose of this study is to document the efficacy and safety profiles of single intravenous dose of 5 mg zoledronic acid for the Chinese patients of Paget's Disease of Bone (PDB).
The intake of high doses of corticosteroids is known to play an important role in the weakening of the bones and is thus an increasing fracture risk. Zoledronic acid (Aclasta) is a drug kn...
Zoledronic acid (Zometa) belongs to a class of drugs called bisphosphonates. Bisphosphonates are used in bone metastases to keep the cancerous lesion under control in the bone and to help...
Skull involvement in Paget's disease of bone can lead to neurological symptoms, prompting treatment. Intravenous zoledronic acid (ZA) has emerged as an effective and safe treatment option for patients...
Breast cancer, which preferentially metastasizes to bone, is the most common malignancy among women worldwide and is a leading cause of death. Clinical data from large, phase 3 trials (ie, ABCSG-12, Z...
Objective-To determine the pharmacokinetics, pharmacodynamics, and safety of zoledronic acid in horses. Animals-8 healthy horses. Procedures-A single dose of zoledronic acid (0.057 mg/kg, IV) was admi...
Introduction: Increased bone resorption is associated with several diseases, including osteoporosis, bone metastases and Paget's disease of bone. Zoledronic acid (ZA) is the most potent of the clinica...
The aim of this study was to investigate molecular interactions between a bisphosphonate (BP), zoledronic acid, and bone tissue by the use of Raman microspectroscopy. In this way, samples of hydroxyap...
