In Osteoporosis: Pathophysiology and Clinical Management, leading clinicians and researchers join forces to illuminate in coupled chapters all the major scientific and clinical aspects of osteoporosis. On the basic science side, topics range from the genetics of osteoporosis and bone turnover markers, to androgen action in bone, to the basic biology of estrogen and bone. On the clinical side the authors present the latest thinking about the use of bone densitometry in treatment, the use of vitamin D and its metabolites, and the clinical utilization of salmon calcitonin, as well as parathyroid and bisphosphonate therapies, SERMs, and other important treatments.
