La Fundación Española de Investigación Ósea y del Metabolismo Mineral (FEIOMM) convoca las BECAS FEIOMM-Movilidad con el fin de proporcionar una ayuda complementaria para la realización de estancias cortas en centros de investigación nacionales e internacionales destinadas a ampliar la formación en investigación, mediante la adquisición de nuevos conocimientos y técnicas experimentales, en el campo […]

Unintentional weight loss at baseline was associated with a significantly increased risk of fracture of the clavicle, wrist, spine, rib, hip, and pelvis for up to 5 years following weight loss. This increase is seen as early as 1 year following weight loss, emphasizing the need for prompt fracture risk assessment and appropriate management to […]

Osteoporos Int. 2016 Mar;27(3):849-52. doi: 10.1007/s00198-015-3453-y. Epub 2015 Dec 14. No abstract available.

The clinician should individualize the decision for each patient based on […]

Bone. 2016 Mar;84:279-88. doi: 10.1016/j.bone.2015.12.006. Epub 2015 Dec 17 These data suggest demineralization can occur from within bone through the canalicular system, and that peri-canalicular demineralization occurs not uniformly but directed by individual osteocytes. Blockade of peri-canalicular demineralization may be a therapeutic strategy to increase bone mass and quality. Autor: Nango N, Kubota S, Hasegawa […]

Bone. 2016 Mar;84:57-68. doi: 10.1016/j.bone.2015.12.016. Epub 2015 Dec 23. Review. Given the polygenic nature of skeletal diseases like osteoporosis and osteoarthritis, validating the function of additional miRNA-associated SNPs has the potential to enhance our understanding of the genetic determinants of bone mass and predisposition to selected skeletal diseases.
