Condition(s) targeted: Osteogenesis Imperfecta
Intervention: risedronate sodium (Actonel) (Drug); Placebo (Drug)

Children with Osteogenesis Imperfecta (OI) have bone pain, low bone mass and fractures.
There are no approved drugs for the treatment of OI in children, even though some intravenous
(IV) bisphosphonates are used off-label in some countries. In a single dose, pharmacokinetic
study, data showed that risedronate was well tolerated in 28 children with OI. This three
year study will test the safety and efficacy of risedronate in the treatment of children with
OI. For the first year, patients will be randomized to the risedronate and placebo groups in
a 2: 1 ratio (two groups will receive risedronate, and one group will receive placebo). For
the second and third years of the study, all patients will receive risedronate.
Official title: Safety and Efficacy of Risedronate in the Treatment of Osteogenesis Imperfecta in Children
Study design: Treatment, Randomized, Double Blind (Subject, Investigator), Placebo Control, Parallel Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study
Primary outcome: The primary objective of the study is to determine the efficacy of risedronate compared to placebo in children 4 to <16 years of age with osteogenesis imperfecta as assessed by percent change from Baseline in lumbar spine bone mineral density at Month 12
Minimum age: 4 Years.
Maximum age: 15 Years.
- OI diagnosis
- increased risk of fracture: either has a history of at least 1 radiographically
confirmed, non-traumatic or low impact fracture plus low bone mineral density (BMD) or
has very low BMD with or without a history of fractures.
- Any bisphosphonate use within one year of enrollment
