The use of model organisms together with the power of genetics
has profoundly affected our understanding of the physiology of one
organ, the skeleton, in two distinct but complementary ways. Thisis
the first translational reference to focus on these major
conceptual advances in bone biology and their development in the
clinic. Several advances have already been translated into
therapies and others are being tested for diseases as different as
osteoporosis, type-2 diabetes, and hypo-fertility. This book is a
timely reference for both basic and clinical researchers in bone
biology and endocrinology.
Summarizes the latest research and translational applications of
how the varied growth and development of bone affects appetite,
metabolism, reproduction, and a wide range of endocrine functions
Provides a common language for bone biologists, endocrinologists,
osteologists, and other researchers, such as neuroscientists, who
study appetite, fuel metabolism and diabetes, to discuss the
development of translational research and new therapeutic
strategies for bone, metabolic, and neuro-endocrine diseases.
Saves researchers and clinicians time in quickly accessing the
very latest details on a broad range of bone research and
therapeutics, as opposed to searching through thousands of journal
