About these proceedings


Bone is a sex hormone-dependent organ, which has important implications for current therapeutic strategies in the prevention and possible treatment of bone loss in the elderly. This book contains the proceedings of the Schering Workshop on "Sex Steroids and Bone." The various chapters by leading experts give and overall view of current knowledge on the control of bone hemostasis by sex steroids and new ideas on how this controlcould be exerted. It was also of particular concern to integrate a general survey of in vivo experimentation and histomorphometric evaluation of bone tissue. The organizers of the workshop and editors of this volume hope that it will contribute to a better understanding of the role of sex steroids in bone and thus pave the way for a better experimental approach instudying drug effects on bone with the ultimate goal of improving therapy in bone diseases.
