Reviews

From the reviews:

This book is a practical bench support for all people involved in clinical research dealing with osteoporosis. The book is well designed, easy to read and easy to address as a reference for all aspects regarding osteoporosis and clinical trials in osteoporosis. The quality control regarding both organizational, technical and clinical aspects up to publication of the results of the trials are thoroughly developed in the book. This book … does not really have any counterpart in the available literature on the subject. The target audience of the book appears to be very large … and includes industry partners and sponsors, members of CROs and CRAs and monitors, clinical investigators, physicians and technical staff, clinical trial nurses and other members of the non medical staff involved in a trial related to osteoporosis. (Daniel Uebelhart, Zeitschrift für Rheumatologie 2003;63(2);208.)

This is a practical and well illustrated handbook covering all aspects of clinical trials in the field of osteoporosis. The book is of special interest for everyone planning to conduct research in the specific field of osteporosis. (P. Delincé, Acta Orthopaedica Belgica 2005; 71(1),128)

From the reviews of the second edition:

"A practical manual for clinicians planning and/or participating in trials of osteoporosis treatment. Actually the trials are designed by the manufacturers of the drugs. They also evaluate and usually analyze the data. This book is designed to help the researchers to check whether the protocol is correct and safe. Last but not least, a useful text for pharma." (Zvi Laron, Pediatric Endocrinology Reviews, Vol. 6 (3), March, 2009)
