Sarcopenia - an emerging syndrome of advancing age

Special compilation of critical reviews and original work featured in Calcified Tissue International & Musculoskeletal Research

Peer-Reviewed Publication

International Osteoporosis Foundation

A new special issue of Calcified Tissue International & Musculoskeletal Research presents a series of critical reviews and original work that embodies the current state of the art related to our understanding of the pathogenesis, clinical implications, and potential targets of therapeutic interventions for sarcopenia.

In his editorial, special issue editor Professor Roger A. Fielding, states, “Since the original definition of sarcopenia as the age-associated decline in muscle mass, the research community has struggled with the application of appropriate methodologies to precisely and accurately measure muscle mass in humans. The topics in this special issue highlight the remarkable progress that has been made to date on the evaluation, management, and development of therapeutic interventions.”

We invite you to read and share the following special issue papers:

Journal Editors-in-Chief, Professors René Rizzoli and Stuart Ralston state, “We thank Roger Fielding, Calcified Tissue International’s musculoskeletal research editor, for compiling this special issue with its innovative original research and important reviews. We are confident that readers working in the sarcopenia and muscle field will find this to be a ‘must-read’ issue.”
