Study To Investigate Patient Preference On Dosing In Ibandronate And Risedronate In Korean Women With Postmenopausal Osteoporosis
This is a randomized open label, multi-centre study for Korean women with postmenopausal osteoporosis, evaluating the preference for either the once-monthly dosing of ibandronate or the once-weekly dosing of risedronate.
Eligible subjects will be randomised either ibandronate monthly regimen or risedronate weekly regimen.
Treatment period consists of 3 month with ibandronate 150mg and additional 12 week with risedronate 35 mg or vice versa.
