Prevention of Bone Loss After Pediatric Hematopoietic Cell Transplantation

This is a Phase 2, open-label, randomized, controlled clinical study of pediatric subjects treated with pamidronate with calcium and vitamin D versus calcium and vitamin D alone following hematopoietic cell transplantation (HCT). The purpose of this study is to test the hypothesis that subjects receiving pamidronate with calcium and vitamin D will have higher lumbar spine bone mineral content (LBMC) measured by dual-energy X-ray tomography (DXA) at 1 year post-HCT than subjects receiving calcium and vitamin D alone (Control Group).
