  • Detailed and up-to-date treatment of endocrine regulation of the skeleton and of the diseases and disorders stemming from the endocrine dysregulation
  • Bridges the gap between practice and research
  • Author list comprises international authorities
  • Content deals with a broad overview of the topic as well as cutting edge knowledge

Recent research, which Bone-Metabolic Functions and Modulators expands on, has added new support to the idea that bone not only serves as a support system, but also functions as an integrating organ, with a significant regulatory role for lipid and energy metabolism. Links between physical activity and the skeleton are also becoming increasingly clear. This fully illustrated volume contains up-to-date information on the metabolic role of the skeleton and what this can mean for the treatment of metabolic as well as skeletal and auditory diseases. 

Bone-Metabolic Functions and Modulators is of particular interest to clinician scientists, clinical and basic bone researchers, orthopedists, endocrinologists, internists, dentists, nurse practitioners, medical and dental residents and physiotherapists as well as students of the musculoskeletal system.

Bone-Metabolic Functions and Modulators is the seventh volume in the series Topics in Bone Biology, edited by Felix Bronner and Mary C. Farach-Carson.
