Latest bone research abstracts summarized in slides and videos

International Osteoporosis Foundation provides key research findings presented at the 2014 ASBMR meeting in succinct slide set format

International Osteoporosis Foundation

Today, the International Osteoporosis Foundation (IOF) has published an educational slide deck highlighting 60 original scientific abstracts presented at the Annual Meeting of the American Society for Bone and Mineral Research (ASBMR) in September 2014.

The succinct slide kit can be downloaded free of charge by all individual IOF members (free sign up on the IOF website).

CEO Judy Stenmark stated, "IOF is pleased to provide this informative resource for healthcare professionals interested in the latest advances in bone and mineral research. While 10% of the featured research highlights exciting new basic research, 90% is clinically focused and therefore of essential interest to a broad range of practitioners and clinical researchers."

The abstracts have been selected and prepared by leading international experts who give their personal perspectives and highlight the clinical impact of the research presented. Key themes include:

  • Bone architecture and strength
  • Vitamin D, nutrition and metabolism
  • Osteoporosis treatment and new treatment strategies
  • Falls, frailty and fractures
  • Bone turnover markers

In addition, the following four symposia and plenary sessions are summarized: biochemical markers in the routine management of osteoporosis; International ONJ Task Force - 2014 Consensus on Diagnosis and Management; effects of diabetes on skeletal health; and ASBMR NOF Task Force on goals for osteoporosis treatment.

Video interviews of selected experts are also featured.

Slide sets are available at
