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.
