RATIONALE: Assessing the effect of androgen suppression on bone loss in prostate cancer patients may improve the ability to plan treatment, may decrease the risk of fractures and bony pain, and may help patients live more comfortably. PURPOSE: Clinical trial to determine the effect of androgen suppression on bone loss in patients who have prostate cancer.
Osteoporosis, or thinning of the bones is a common disorder which can cause significant morbidity in terms of pain and fracture. One of the causes of osteoporosis is a low or absent testosterone level. Prostate cancer is the second most common malignancy in males with an increasing incidence. The mainstay of advanced prostate cancer treatment is hormonal manipulation (surgery or medications) in order to lower testosterone levels as testosterone stimulates cancer cells. Despite ...
RATIONALE: Preventing bone loss in patients who are undergoing androgen ablation for prostate cancer may decrease the risk of fractures and may help patients live more comfortably. It is not yet known whether calcium is more effective with or without estrogen and/or risedronate in preventing osteoporosis. PURPOSE: Randomized phase III trial to compare the effectiveness of two forms of calcium with or without estrogen and/or risedronate in preventing osteoporosis in patients wi...
The purpose of this two year study is to examine the safety and effectiveness of alendronate (Fosamax) for the prevention of bone loss in men with prostate cancer who are on therapy to lower their testosterone levels. All men will receive appropriate calcium and vitamin D supplements and one to two years of alendronate therapy. Bone density tests will be done every six months.
This study is being conducted to evaluate the effect of an investigational drug on bone loss in men with prostate cancer who are receiving Androgen Deprivation Therapy (ADT). In order to participate, male patients 18 years and older must be veterans from participating Veterans Administration Medical Centers that are receiving ADT for prostate cancer and have established osteoporosis.
The ANTELOPE trial is a longitudinal observational clinical study of changes in bone density, structure and strength over 12 months in men receiving treatment for prostate cancer. Three groups (n = 30 per group) will be compared, with bone assessments at baseline and 12 months. Allowing for a 18 month recruitment period, 12 months follow-up and data analysis, the total study length will be 3 years. The groups comprise: Group A - Men with prostate cancer starting ADT Gro...
Osteoporosis or "thinning of the bones" affects in 1 in 4 Canadian women and 1 in 8 Canadian men. Moreover, while the rates of osteoporosis among Canadians are stabilizing, worldwide the number of people afflicted with osteoporosis continues to rise. The most serious complication of osteoporosis is a broken bone or fracture. Fractures due to osteoporosis can result in long hospital stays, dependence on others, and premature death. While there are several medications that pr...
Androgen deprivation therapy (ADT) treatment for prostate cancer decreases the natural hormone called testosterone. This type of therapy is very effective for the treatment of prostate cancer. However, one of the side effects is bone loss or thinning of the bones that can lead to osteoporosis and an increased risk of bone fractures (breaking of the bones). The purpose of the study is to determine whether or not the addition of toremifene citrate (the study drug) to therapy ca...
The overall goal of this proposal is to determine the effectiveness and safety of once weekly alendronate (Fosamax) in the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis in men with prostate cancer on androgen deprivation therapy and to evaluate maintenance of bone mass following termination of therapy after one year.
The aim of this research registry is to collect information on individuals with osteoporosis, those with risk factors for osteoporosis, and comparative healthy controls. Bone mineral density measurements will be done on these individuals to determine bone health.
Osteoporosis affects nearly half of all American women over age 50. During the teenage years, girls can increase bone growth to decrease their risk of osteoporosis later in life. This study will test whether girls can change their food intake and physical activity patterns in ways that will increase their bone growth during the mid-teen years.
Multi-center,double blind randomized phase III placebo controlled study in 250 men with histologically proven prostate cancer with out bone metastases who are beginning ADT therapy and who will receive concomitant treatment with either oral Fosamax 70mg once weekly or placebo for one year.These men will be treated and follow up for one year,during which time changes in BMD, markers of bone resorption and formation will be monitored.All patients will receive calcium and vitamin ...
This is a phase IIa, open label, single arm, and prospective study of hormone therapy-naïve men with oligometastatic prostate cancer to the bone. The study will test if treating the primary tumor sites and 5 or fewer sites of bone-only metastasis with external beam radiation with concomitant systemic Radium-223 will reduce the utilization of androgen deprivation therapy, improve QOL and improve OS over a the comparator cohort of SWOG intermittent ADT historic cohort.
Bones grow and stay strong through a continuous process of formation (building) and resorption (break down). When more bone is formed than resorbed, the density (level of calcium) in bone increases and the bones become stronger. However, if more bone is resorbed than formed the density of bone decreases and the bones become weak. This condition is called osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a rare but serious condition in children. Childhood osteoporosis can occur without a...
Prostate Cancer patients treated with LHRH agonists (e.g., goserelin) lose Bone Mineral Density (BMD). Using a prospective, observational study design, we propose that monitoring how physicians manage Cancer Treatment Induced Bone Loss(CTIBL) in their patients. The gold standard for evaluating BMD is dual energy x-ray absorptiometry (DEXA). The proposed study will provide some of the first prospective data on the rates of Skeletal Related Events (SREs) in prostate cancer patien...
Bone is the most common site of metastases in prostate cancer and bone complications cause substantial morbidity to this population. Phase III studies have shown that zoledronic acid is effective in decreasing the morbidity associated with bone metastases. Zoledronic acid (ZA) is generally well tolerated but may have side effects such as hypocalcemia, renal impairment and osteonecrosis of the jaw. Administration of ZA as infrequently as once yearly is sufficient to prevent ost...
An improved diagnosis of bone metastases in prostate cancer patients can have a significant impact on treatment strategy and probably survival as well. The primary purpose of the project is to determine the diagnostic accuracy of bone SPECT-CT, choline-PET-CT, PSMA-PET-CT, NaF-PET-CT and Whole-body MRI in the diagnosis of bone metastases in prostate cancer patients.
Osteoporosis affects millions of postmenopausal women in the USA. The current approved treatments are all drugs that prevent bone loss and possibly result in small gains in bone mass. Another possible treatment consists of drugs that increase bone formation. There are currently two drugs that stimulate bone formation, sodium fluoride and human parathyroid hormone (hPTH). Neither of these two drugs has been approved by the FDA. APOMINE has shown significant bone formation i...
Risedronate is an orally administered pyridinyl bisphosphonate that is 36 times more potent than pamidronate and 72 times more potent than clodronate. Four randomized, double-blind trials have been carried out in patients with postmenopausal osteoporosis. In 2 of these studies, vertebral fracture incidence was reduced by a daily dose of 5 mg risedronate by up to 65% and 49% relative to placebo after 1 and 3 years, respectively. In these trials, risedronate improved lumbar sp...
The aim of this study is to determine if 3 monthly infusions of zoledronic acid, given over one year, improves the bone mineral density in osteoporotic patients undergoing androgen deprivation therapy for prostate cancer
The Beat Osteoporosis: Nourish and Exercise Skeletons (BONES) Project is an after-school program that includes weight loading physical activity, nutrition and bone health education, and calcium-rich snacks. The program is designed to improve bone health in early elementary school children.
Idiopathic osteoporosis (IOP) is an uncommon disorder in which otherwise healthy young individuals sustain one or more low-trauma fractures. Teriparatide [PTH(1-34)], which is FDA approved for treatment of osteoporosis in men and postmenopausal women, works by stimulating bone formation. We hypothesize that teriparatide will significantly increase bone density (BMD) and improve bone structure in premenopausal women with IOP.
Patients with prostate cancer treated in outpatient clinics will be recruited by their urologist physician. Primary Objective: To evaluate the compliance in male patients with prostate cancer treated with Bisphosphonate and that suffered from Osteopenia/osteoporosis. Secondary objectives: To evaluate the compliance of family physicians to prescribe Bisphosphonate for patients upon recommendation by Urologists. To evaluate the overall number of patients treated b...
Osteoporosis has become a worldwide concern an a matter of public health as osteoporosis is a major contributing factor associated with insufficiency fracture of the spine, wrist and proximal femur, and as a result, can diminish quality of life as well as increase direct and indirect healthcare costs. The pathophysiology of osteoporosis is based on two main factors; low bone mass and age associated architectural changes within the bone, high impact exercise in childhood can ...
