Outwitting the 'silent thief' of osteoporosis

(Garvan Institute of Medical Research) In a world first, new Australian research has revealed that genetic profiling can help predict whether an individual will break a bone through osteoporosis. The findings, which arise from Australia's globally recognized Dubbo Osteoporosis Epidemiology Study, are likely to contribute to clinical decision-making in future, bringing us one step closer to personalized medicine for bone disease.
