WASHINGTON, Dec. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- The American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR), the leading scientific organization for the study of bone diseases, announces the publication of the new seventh edition of the Primer on the Metabolic Bone Diseases and Disorders of Bone and Mineral Metabolism. The new edition reflects the rapid and exciting advances in research and the clinical practice management of diseases such as osteoporosis, metastatic bone diseases and inherited bone diseases.

"Our goal with the Seventh Edition of the Primer was to create a worldwide perspective on the diseases and disorders of bone," said Primer Editor-in-Chief, Clifford Rosen, M.D., Director of Clinical and Translational Research at Maine Medical Center. "This book is a 'must have' resource for all clinicians involved with the diagnosis and treatment of patients with bone diseases, especially osteoporosis, other metabolic bone diseases and bone cancer."

Bone disease reaches across many specialties and disciplines, and this new edition is an excellent overview to metabolic bone disease in a concise, current and usable format. Physicians and scientists in internal medicine, pediatrics, orthopedics, primary care, geriatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, endocrinology, rheumatology, oncology and nephrology will benefit from the information provided here.

  • Abnormalities in Bone and Calcium Metabolism Following Burns
  • Bone Cancer and Pain
  • Vascular Calcification
