Recd Number of Abstracts Submitted for Sci Cong on Osteoporosis

TORONTO. The IOF World Congress on Osteoporosis (IOF WCO), the world's largest Scientific congress devoted specifically to the bone disease osteoporosis, opened on Friday June 2, in Toronto, Canada//.

Professor Rene Rizzoli, chairman of the IOF WCO Scientific Committee, noted that this year's congress attracted 720 abstracts, more than twice the number of the previous congress held in 2004 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

On June 2, 2006, in one of the Congress highlights, space explorers and earth-bound medical experts will examine the links between immobility and bone health at the Bone Research in Space Symposium. Canadian physician and astronaut Dr. Dave Williams, who is the first Canadian to have lived in both the ocean and space, is one of the panel.

As part of the 2nd IOF Women Leaders Roundtable, to be held in conjunction with the Congress, nine prominent women from around the world will call for action by policy makers, health professionals and individuals to fight the silent epidemic of osteoporosis.

Themes to be covered during the five-day IOF World Congress on Osteoporosis include 35 oral presentations and more than 680 poster presentations that focus on nutrition, smoking, exercise and osteoporosis; osteoporosis diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology and health economics issues; pregnancy, infancy and osteoporosis; and osteoporosis in men..
