The investigators have currently finished conducting an international multi-center trial that compares the efficacy and safety of pamidronate and zoledronate in the treatment of moderate to severe forms of Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI). This trial has included only children above one year of age. The aim of the current study is to extend the observations of that currently finished study to infants below 1 year of age. Moreover, it is possible to administer zoledronate in a single short infusion instead of the three-day cycles with Pamidronate, therefore decreasing patient and family burdens with shorter stays in the hospital.

This is an extension study to examine the long-term safety and efficacy of zoledronic acid in patients who have completed the core CZOL446H2202 study.
The study will be conducted at Assiut university children hospital and it will include patients with history of repeated fractures due to mild or irrelevant trauma. Diagnosis will be esta...
The purpose of this study is to learn about pregnancy outcomes in osteogenesis imperfecta (OI). Patients enrolled in the Brittle Bone Disorders (BBD) Contact Registry (CR) will be invited ...
The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of BPS804 on strength/quality of bone in patients with Type I, III or IV Osteogenesis imperfecta using a special type of CT scanner. ...
Alendronate should be considered as an alternative therapy of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) because it significantly increased areal bone mineral density (BMD) and its Z score, decreased fr...
Bisphosphonates have been demonstrated to increase the bone mineral density (BMD) of osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) patients. We aimed to compare the efficacy and safety of intravenous zoledronic acid a...
It is important to estimate the likelihood that a pediatric fracture is caused by osteogenesis imperfecta (OI), especially the least severe type of OI (type 1).
We study, apropos of a case, a total hip arthroplasty in a patient with osteogenesis imperfecta. The characteristics of this disease, such as high risk of fracture and the presence of deformities, mak...
Osteogenesis imperfecta (OI) is a hereditary connective tissue disorder of skeletal fragility and more recently muscle weakness. This review highlights our current knowledge of the impact of compromis...
The aim of this study was to assess the imaging and histological features of experimental periapical lesions, including the adjacent alveolar bone, in rats under zoledronic acid treatment. The study u...
Autosomal dominant COLLAGEN DISEASES resulting from defective biosynthesis of COLLAGEN TYPE I and characterized by brittle, osteoporotic, and easily fractured bones. It may also present with blue sclerae, loose joints, and imperfect dentin formation. There are four major types, I-IV.
A clinically and genetically heterogeneous group of hereditary conditions characterized by malformed DENTAL ENAMEL, usually involving DENTAL ENAMEL HYPOPLASIA and/or TOOTH HYPOMINERALIZATION.
The formation of cartilage. This process is directed by CHONDROCYTES which continually divide and lay down matrix during development. It is sometimes a precursor to OSTEOGENESIS.
The process of bone formation. Histogenesis of bone including ossification.
An autosomal dominant disorder of tooth development characterized by opalescent dentin resulting in discoloration of the teeth, ranging from dusky blue to brownish. The dentin is poorly formed with an abnormally low mineral content; the pulp canal is obliterated, but the enamel is normal. The teeth usually wear down rapidly, leaving short, brown stumps.
