  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to expose patients with OA to calcitonin and to determine plasma calcitonin levels after administration of 0.6 mg and 0.8 mg oral calcitonin and 200 IU nasal calcitonin. Also the purpose is to assess the effect of different doses of oral calcitonin (0.6 mg and 0.8 mg oral) and 200 IU nasal calcitonin compared to placebo on serum CTX-I and CTX-II. Finally to assess the tolerance profile of different doses/formulations of oral calcitonin compared to placebo.
