IOF Asia-Pacific Meeting presents new research and advances in osteoporosis management
Date:12/13/2012

urden of fractures due to osteoporosis in Malaysia. Dr. Hew warned, "In the future Malaysia can expect a rise in the number of fractures due to osteoporosis, not just because of the growing percentage of older people within the population, but also due to the trend towards urbanization and more sedentary lifestyles."

Dr. Lee emphasized the significance of the IOF Asia-Pacific Osteoporosis Meeting for the fight against osteoporosis in Malaysia. "In order to address this significant health issue, we need to work together to implement community-based prevention strategies and to promote more research as well as public and health professional education programmes. We hope that this Meeting will serve as a catalyst for further progress in these areas."

The Chair of the IOF Asia-Pacific Regional Advisory Council and Scientific Co-Chair of the Meeting, Dr. Ambrish Mithal, remarked that over the past 30 years, the incidence of hip fracture has risen 2- to 3-fold in most Asian countries. "Osteoporosis, together with other related muscle and joint diseases, poses a serious and growing threat to the health and well-being of older adults in the Asia-Pacific region," he noted.

"It is expected that by 2050 more than 50% of all osteoporotic fractures will occur in Asia," said Professor John A. Kanis, President of IOF. "This meeting is an important regional venue for education and new research, both of which will help doctors work against the impending epidemic of fractures. We expect that the advanced clinical strategies communicated to the delegates at this meeting will ultimately result in improved patient care throughout the region."

The Meeting also serves to stimulate research from the Asia-Pacific region. Scientists from throughout Asia benefit from the opportunity to present their research at a high-profile venue with a large international audience. Research abstracts from the meeting are published in the field's leading journal, Osteop
