Abstract: Introduction: Osteoporosis has been recognised as an established and well-defined disease that affects more than 75 million people in the United States, Europe and Japan. Osteoporosis has been operationally defined by the WHO on the basis of bone mineral density (BMD) assessment. Although risk factors for fracture are well-known and thoroughly investigated, osteoporosis is an under-diagnosed and under-treated disease in women, and even more so in men. Objective: The general objective of this w... more
