Advances In Osteoporosis Prevention, Diagnosis And Treatment Presented At 8th International Symposium Of National Osteoporosis Foundation

WASHINGTON, April 1 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- A faculty of internationally-renowned osteoporosis experts are gathering today to share the latest clinically-relevant information on osteoporosis prevention, diagnosis and treatment at the National Osteoporosis Foundation's (NOF) 8th International Symposium on Osteoporosis (ISO8): "Translating Research Into Clinical Practice," April 1-5, 2009 at the Marriott Wardman Park Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Additionally, presenters will address emerging therapies and diagnostic techniques; skeletal development across the lifespan; and clinical guidelines for diagnosing and treating men with osteoporosis.

Peter Cavanagh, Ph.D., University of Washington, professor of orthopaedics and sports medicine, will present a keynote address from his study in which 22 volunteers remain in bed simulating the weightlessness of spaceflight. The study findings offer for the first time a way to prevent bone loss in a specific region of the hip.

"Osteoporosis and low bone mass are conditions that increase the risk of serious and disabling fractures, affecting 44 million Americans or 55 percent of the population age 50 and older," said Robert Recker, MD, president of NOF. "Despite all we know about osteoporosis, it remains a dis
