Summary

Therapies for osteoporosis have been traditionally based on our understanding of bone cell activities. Bone tissue is constantly being removed and replaced (bone turnover) by osteoclasts which resorb bone and osteoblasts which lay down new bone. Bone turnover is essential for the maintenance of a healthy skeleton by removing or repairing the microscopic damage that results from everyday physical activity.
