This is a phase 1, randomized, open-label, parallel group study conducted in healthy postmenopausal women with low bone mineral density previously treated with alendronate.

Clinical Details

Official title: An Open-label, Randomized Study to Estimate the Percent Change From Baseline in Lumbar Spine Bone Mineral Density After 3 Months of AMG 785 Administration in Postmenopausal Women With Low Bone Mineral Density Previously Treated With Alendronate

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change in lumbar spine bone mineral density (BMD)

Secondary outcome:

Change in total hip and femoral neck BMD

Change in serum type 1 aminoterminal propeptide (P1NP) measurements

Number of treatment-emergent adverse events to include clinically significant changes in chemistry, hematology, physical examinations, electrocardiograms, and incidences of subjects who develop anti-AMG 785 antibodies

Mean (SD) serum concentration of AMG 785

Change in serum C-telopeptide (sCTX) measurements


Minimum age: 55 Years. Maximum age: 85 Years. Gender(s): Female.


Inclusion Criteria:

- Postmenopausal women, defined as no vaginal bleeding or spotting for ≥ 12 months

- Low bone mineral density at screening [defined by a bone mineral density (BMD)

T-score ≤ - 2. 0 and ≥ -4. 0 at the lumbar spine (L1 to L4; or BMD T-score of evaluable

vertebrae), total hip, or femoral neck]

- Currently taking alendronate (70 mg weekly or equivalent) exclusively for ≥ 1 year

with verbal agreement that the subject has taken ≥ 80% of their doses with good tolerance Exclusion Criteria:

- History of vertebral fracture, or fragility fracture of the wrist, humerus, hip or

pelvis after age 50; or recent bone fracture within 6 months prior to screening

- History of metabolic or bone disease such as Paget's disease, rheumatoid arthritis,

osteomalacia, osteogenesis imperfecta, osteopetrosis, ankylosing spondylitis, Cushing's disease, hyperprolactinemia, and malabsorption syndrome

- Vitamin D deficiency (defined as 25-OH-VitD levels < 20 ng/mL)
