Arms Assigned Interventions
Experimental: Odanacatib Drug: Odanacatib
Odanacatib 50 mg compressed tablet will be administered orally, once-a-week, for 24 months
Other Name: MK-0822
Dietary Supplement: Cholecalciferol (Vitamin D3)
Two (2) 2800 IU compressed tablets administered orally, once-a-week, for 24 months.
Dietary Supplement: Calcium carbonate
Dietary and supplemental sources, taken as needed, to ensure a total daily calcium intake of approximately 1200 mg.
