Now in its third edition, Osteoporosis, is the most comprehensive, authoritative reference on this disease. Written by renowned experts in the field, this two-volume reference is a must-have for academic and medical libraries, physicians, researchers, and any company involved in osteoporosis research and development. Worldwide, 200 million women between 60-80 suffer from osteoporosis and have a lifetime risk of fracture between 30 and 40 percent continuing to make osteoporosis a hot topic in medicine. This newest edition covers everything from basic anatomy and physiology to diagnosis, management and treatment in a field where direct care costs for osteoporitic fractures in the U.S. reach up to $18 billion each year.This book: recognizes the critical importance of the Wnt signaling pathway for bone health; incorporates new chapters on osteocytes, phosphatonins, mouse genetics, and CNS and bone; examines essential updates on estrogen prevention and treatment and the recent results from the WHI; discusses the controversial topics of screening and clinical trial design for drug registration; includes essential updates on therapeutic uses of calcium, vitamin D, SERMS, bisphosphonates, and parathyroid hormone; and offers critical reviews of reproductive and hormonal risk factors, ethnicity, nutrition, therapeutics, management, and economics comprising a tremendous wealth of knowledge in a single source not found elsewhere.

Review:

Praise for Previous Editions: ..".interesting, comprehensive and up-to-date: each chapter has something new and important to say..."-JOURNAL OF BONE AND JOINT SURGERY ..".Osteoporosis is quite comprehensive; indeed, topics that typically receive brief treatment elsewhere (osteoporosis in minority groups and in men) receive entire chapters here..." -THE NEW ENGLAND JOURNAL OF MEDICINE
