A Prospective, Randomized, Multi-center Comparative 2-arm Trial of Efficacy and Safety of Zoledronic Acid (Every 3-months vs. Every 4 Weeks) Beyond Approximately 1 Year of Treatment With Zoledronic Acid in Patients With Bone Lesions From Breast Cancer
Allocation: Randomized, Endpoint Classification: Safety/Efficacy Study, Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment, Masking: Open Label, Primary Purpose: Treatment
Annual Overall Skeletal Morbidity Rate (SMR)
The SMR was computed by summing all Skeletal Related Event(s) (SREs)which occurred during the observation period and dividing it by the ratio "days of observation period / 365.25", for each participant. SRE was defined as: pathologic bone fracture, spinal cord compression, surgery to bone both curative and prophylactic, radiation therapy to bone, or hypercalcemia of malignancy. SMR (years) = 365.25 x SMR(days) where SMR (days) = total number of SREs / total SRE risk period (days). Risk period for SMR was computed as the days from randomization date to the date of last visit.
