INFORMATION INTENDED FOR PATIENTS
PROFIDYS is a clinical trial supported by the European Science Foundation. It is made up of 11 centres, spread across Europe. Two countries have started to recruit patients: France and Belgium. Within a few weeks, centres will open in the Netherlands, as well as in England, followed later by some in Germany. Our aim is to bring together 158 patients within 3 years.
What is the treatment proposed?
The treatment is risedronate (ACTONEL®), a second generation bisphosphonate. Its effectiveness has not only been shown in treating Paget’s disease, but also in the treatment and prevention of postmenopausal or steroid therapy induced osteoporosis. Mode of action: the bone is a perpetually rejuvenating tissue. It is constantly being killed and replaced. ACTONEL® contributes to the increase in bone density as it is a powerful agent in stopping the degradation (resorption) of bone.
What to do if you experience any undesirable effects?
Do not hesitate in contacting your investigator with any questions that you may have, no matter how small. If you see your GP, tell them what treatment you are potentially receiving. Finally, in an emergency, please call the clinical trial coordination centre on 00 33 (0) 4 72 11 74 89, including weekends.
