Additional information

  • The study compound is a new product that may potentially be used for the treatment of osteoporosis and other bone loss associated conditions. Osteoporosis is a disease that weakens the bones. It makes bones thinner and less dense than they should be. People with osteoporosis are more likely to experience broken bones.
  • The study compound is similar to the approved medicine Prolia. Prolia is already being used by patients for the treatment of osteoporosis. In this trial we will compare the study compound to Prolia. The purpose of this trial is to compare how quickly and to what extent the study compound and Prolia are absorbed, broken down, and eliminated from the body.
  • For this study you will need to have an adequate vitamin D level at screening. If your vitamin D level is too low to qualify, you may be given a supplement in order to replenish your vitamin D.

Veelgestelde vragen

Je mag maximaal 4 keer per jaar deelnemen aan een onderzoek. Tussen twee onderzoeken moeten minstens 30 dagen zitten. Voor sommige onderzoeken geldt een langere wachttijd.

Je kunt tijdens het onderzoek last krijgen van milde klachten als hoofdpijn of misselijkheid. Dat kan door het geneesmiddel komen. Maar het kan ook komen doordat je voor het onderzoek bijvoorbeeld nuchter moet blijven. Die bijwerkingen zijn vervelend, maar gelukkig niet gevaarlijk.

Voordat een geneesmiddel op mensen mag worden getest, is het al uitgebreid onderzocht in een laboratorium. Daardoor kunnen we goed voorspellen welke bijwerkingen je eventueel kunt krijgen en kunnen we je daarop voorbereiden. Het komt dus bijna nooit voor dat deelnemers last krijgen van onverwachte bijwerkingen. Een allergische reactie op het middel komt gemiddeld bijvoorbeeld één keer per jaar voor.

Je deelname aan geneesmiddelenonderzoek is altijd vrijwillig. Je mag dus op elk moment besluiten om te stoppen. Soms ben je genoodzaakt om te stoppen. Bijvoorbeeld vanwege familieomstandigheden, of als de arts besluit dat dat voor jouw gezondheid beter is. Als je stopt, bekijken we op welk deel van de vergoeding je recht hebt. Wel zo eerlijk!

Als je meedoet aan een onderzoek waarvoor je langer dan 10 dagen in het onderzoekscentrum verblijft, is het soms mogelijk om (in overleg) bezoek te ontvangen.
