About these proceedings

Introduction

Osteoporosis affects a growing number of the population. Current treatments are based on prevention of further bone loss after the condition is diagnosed, often because a fracture has occurred. Treatments in the future will aim at healing osteoporosis by improving bone mass and quality. This book describes novel discoveries and research which will allow bone to be restored after it has been lost.
