This study is being conducted to evaluate the effect treatment has on serum P1NP levels, a biomarker of bone formation in postmenopausal women with low bone mass.

Clinical Details

Official title: A Parallel Group Study to Evaluate the Effect of Six Weeks of Treatment With Nasal Spray (NS) ZT-034, Compared to Subcutaneous (SC) Forteo and Placebo, on Bone Formation, as Assessed by Stimulation of Serum P1NP Levels in Postmenopausal Women With Low Bone Mass

Study design: Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Pharmacodynamics Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Double Blind (Subject, Caregiver, Investigator, Outcomes Assessor), Primary Purpose: Treatment

Primary outcome: Change in Serum P1NP from baseline to end of treatment.

Secondary outcome: Change in serum calcium and incidence of hypercalcemia (pre-dose and post-dose)


Minimum age: 45 Years. Maximum age: N/A. Gender(s): Female.

lower at lumbar spine, total hip or femoral neck Exclusion Criteria:
