Osteoporosis in men is an important clinical problem that has unfortunately received little attention. The condition often goes undiagnosed and untreated. In this groundbreaking text the issue is thoroughly explored for the first time. Eminent investigators and clinicians describe the state of the art and interpret developments in this emerging field. Important research directions are identified and practical approaches to clinical problems are developed. This book forms the foundation for a rapidly expanding aspect of medical science.

Audience: Researchers, clinicians, and students in osteoporosis and bone-related disciplines, as well as pharmaceutical companies.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The editors of Osteoporosis in Men, Second Edition have produced a comprehensive compendium about osteoporosis as it relates to men. An established group of experts has contributed to the second edition of this excellent book. The topics range from the basics of osteoporosis to sections on growth of the skeleton, aging, importance of nutrition, sex hormones, and the development of the disorder. Key sections of clinical relevance including diagnosis and treatment of osteoporosis in men are covered in depth. This book will serve as an excellent resource for established clinicians and investigators as well as for students and fellows."

—Richard Eastell, MD, FRCP, FRCPath, FMedSci, Professor of Bone Metabolism, Director of the NIHR Bone Biomedical Research Unit, Centre for Biomedical Research, Northern General Hospital, Sheffield, South Yorkshire, United Kingdom

"The 10 sections and total of 57 informative chapters in the second edition of the text Osteoporosis in Men constitute an impressive body of up-to-date information by leading experts on this important topic. The text is particularly useful because of its breadth extending from basic bone biology and environmental factors affecting skeletal development in men to clinical chapters on pathophysiology, diagnosis, and therapy. The editors have provided a comprehensive yet practical approach to the topic which makes the text useful to a broad potential audience ranging from trainees to established leaders in the field."

— John T. Potts, Jr., MD, Director of Research and Physician-in-Chief emeritus, Massachusetts General Hospital, Jackson Distinguished Professor of Clinical Medicine, Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA, USA

"This thorough and comprehensive book integrates new, accessible, and informative material in the field. It will help investigators, as well as practitioners and students, to improve their understanding of male skeletal health and male skeletal loss. The additional knowledge, assembled in such a readable manner, should help us achieve one of our ultimate goals, namely better care of men with osteoporosis."

—Gerolamo Bianchi, MD, Department of Locomotor System, Division of Rheumatology, Azienda Sanitaria Genovese, Genova, Italy
