Research and new developments for osteoporosis

Back to Osteoporosis

Research has recently produced the FRAX assessment tool, which was developed by the World Health Organisation to measure a patient’s risk of having an osteoporotic fracture.

The SCOOP study is testing a method of community-based screening to find out whether early identification of risk, followed up with preventative treatment, leads to a reduction in the number of fractures in women aged 70–85.

Research is also investigating new drugs, which should further improve the available treatment options.
