Denosumab Treatment in Children with OI

 

Amgen Pharmaceutical Company is sponsoring an international clinical trial to study the effects of the drug Denosumab on bone mineral and fracture occurrence in children who have OI. Denosumab is a prescription medication that is sold under the name Prolia. It is currently used to treat post-menopausal osteoporosis through twice a year injections. Forty sites in the United States and multiple other countries will be participating in this study. Children age 2-17 years who have a diagnosis of OI Type I, III or IV are eligible for this 3 year study.

This information is provided as a service. The OI Foundation is not a sponsor of this study and did not assist in its design.
