Clinical Trials Using Calcium Carbonate
Clinical trials are research studies that involve people. The clinical trials on this list are studying Calcium Carbonate. All trials on the list are supported by NCI.
NCI’s basic information about clinical trials explains the types and phases of trials and how they are carried out. Clinical trials look at new ways to prevent, detect, or treat disease. You may want to think about taking part in a clinical trial. Talk to your doctor for help in deciding if one is right for you.
Vitamin D and Calcium Carbonate with or without Pamidronate Disodium in Preventing Bone Loss in Younger Patients Who Have Undergone Stem Cell Transplant to Treat a Hematologic Malignancy
This randomized phase II trial studies how well vitamin D and calcium carbonate with pamidronate disodium work compared with vitamin D and calcium carbonate alone in preventing bone loss in younger patients who have undergone a stem cell transplant to treat a hematologic malignancy. Low bone mineral density is common in children who have bone marrow transplants, which may increase the risk of early osteoporosis, or weakening of the bones, and broken bones. Vitamin D, calcium carbonate, and pamidronate disodium may prevent bone loss by increasing bone mineral density. It is not yet known whether vitamin D and calcium carbonate with pamidronate disodium are more effective than vitamin D and calcium carbonate alone in preventing bone loss after transplant.
