Participants are post- menopausal with a breast cancer diagnosis who received at least 2 doses of denosumab, and then discontinued therapy, and discontinued Aromatase Inhibitors/AI prior to or within 6 months of stopping denosumab
Participants will be assessed at Timepoint 0 (last dose of denosumab injection) and then at 9,12,18 and 24 months following discontinuation of denosumab. The evaluation will include history and pain assessment for development of new fractures, weight and height measurement with BMI (body mass index) calculation, and blood work for bone turnover markers (including serum carboxy-terminal collagen crosslinks (CTX) in serum and bone specific alkaline phosphatase).
Diagnostic Test: Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry scans
Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry (DEXA) scans will be performed at the 12 months timepoint , and then at the 24 month timepoint.
Other Name: DEXA scans
Diagnostic Test: Trabecular Bone Score
TBS is an innovative gray-level texture measurement that utilizes lumbar spine DEXA images to discriminate changes in bone microarchitecture. Specifically, TBS measures bone quality through tridimensional bone areas with different trabecular and microstructural characteristics. The combination of TBS microstructure evaluation with bone density measured by DEXA has been shown to be superior to either measurement alone in the assessment of fracture risk.
