Summary
"Osteoporosis is a systemic skeletal disease characterized by low bone mass and microarchitectural deterioration of bone tissue, with a consequent increase in bone fragility and susceptibility to fracture. The clinical complications of osteoporosis include fractures, disability, and chronic pain. Approximately 44 million people in the United States are affected by osteoporosis or low bone density. It is especially common in postmenopausal women. This report summarizes the available evidence comparing the efficacy and safety of agents used to prevent or treat low bone density, including osteoporosis."--Executive Summary
