Landmark Study Aims to Improve Osteoporosis Care Standards Worldwide
Date:4/9/2008

Multi-National Study Will Follow 60,000 Women for 5 Years

ISTANBUL, Turkey, April 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Nearly 60,000 women aged 55 years and older have enrolled in a landmark, multi-national study that will focus on the management of osteoporosis across the globe. Launch of the Global Longitudinal Registry of Osteoporosis in Women (GLOW) was announced today at ECCEO 8 (Eighth European Congress on Clinical and Economic Aspects of Osteoporosis and Osteoarthritis) in Istanbul, Turkey.

Women are participating from 17 cities in 10 countries on 3 continents.
