About the Study

Osteoporosis is a disease in which your bones become very weak and brittle making them more fragile and at greater risk of fractures.  Postmenopausal women are more susceptible to osteoporosis, since it is closely related to estrogen deficiency. Since the loss of bone occurs silently and progressively, there are often no symptoms until the first fracture happens. The most related fractures to osteoporosis is of the hip, wrist or spine.

Baptist Health Center for Clinical Research is currently enrolling for a research study to determine whether a new formulation and method of administration for an osteoporosis medication is as effective as an FDA-approved version and to evaluate its safety and tolerability.

The study will last approximately 15 months with 17 of visits to our office. Compensation is available for time and travel for those who qualify. Study related care is available to participants at no cost and health insurance is not required nor needed.
