World Congress on Osteoporosis 2010 presents outstanding scientific program
Date:3/1/2009

The International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) and the European Society for Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis (ESCEO) have joined forces to present an outstanding scientific programme for the upcoming IOF WCO- ECCEO10, a global congress to be held in Florence, Italy from May 5-8, 2010.

Complete programme information, online registration and abstract submission will be available on www.iofwco-ecceo10.org .

IOF WCO-ECCEO10 will offer an overview of the most recent developments and cutting-edge research in the pathophysiology, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, as well as policy related issues such as health economics. With its global perspective, the Congress will be an excellent forum for interaction and the exchange of ideas among researchers and clinicians as well as specialists from allied health fields.

The programme provides a mix of both stimulating plenary lectures and Meet-The-Expert sessions on twenty clinically-oriented topics, as well as poster presentations, late breaking news, and satellite symposia.

Renowned plenary speakers will lecture on these 12 thought-provoking issues and 'hot' topics in the field:

  • Cellular Control of Bone Mass, R. Baron (USA)
  • Osteoporosis and Biological Aging, S. Cummings (USA)
  • Why does a bone break, do cortical or cancellous matter? M. Bouxsein (USA)
  • Do men and women fracture at the same BMD? J.A. Kanis (UK)
  • Region specific fracture risk and response to therapy, E. Seeman (Australia)
  • What did we learn from genome-wide association studies? T. Spector (UK)
  • Interaction between bone and joints in physiology and disease, G. Schett (Germany)
  • Glitazone and bone: a paradigm to better understand bone physiology, C. Rosen (USA)
  • Extra skeletal effects of vitamin D, B. Dawson-Hughes (USA)
  • Stimulators /inhibitors of bone turnover, together or one after the other? J.P. Bilezikian (USA)
  • Developmental plasticity and later osteoporosis, M. Hanson (UK)
  • Emerging therapies, S. Papapoulos (NL)

Don't miss the premiere global skeletal health meeting of 2010 - reserve May 5- 8, 2010 on your calendar. Complete information is available on the Congress website www.iofwco-ecceo10.org
