Male Osteoporosis Study Seeks Participants

Cincinnati--Researchers at the University of Cincinnati Bone Health and Osteoporosis Center are conducting a study to assess the safety and effectiveness of an oral drug on bone health. "Although it is more common in post-menopausal women, 10 percent of all men over the age of 50 have enough bone loss that they can be clinically diagnosed as having osteoporosis," said Nelson Watts, MD. Dr. Watts is a UC professor and director of the UC Bone Health and Osteoporosis Center.

The clinical trial will investigate the effectiveness of this medication on preserving bone health in men. In this randomly assigned trial, two thirds of the participants will receive an active medication. One third of the group will receive a placebo. All bone scans and medications are free for qualified participants.
