Clinical Trials in Osteoporosis is a practical handbook on clinical trials in the growing field of osteoporosis. Topics covered include study design, technical issues, data collection, quality assurance, data analysis and presentation. It aims to take the user through the process step-by-step from start to finish, also providing a background on regulatory guidelines, ethical implications, endpoints, current therapies and the ideal drug to use. There are no other books at present that specifically address the issue of clinical trials in osteoporosis. A number of issues dealt with in this book have been brought together in one publication for the first time. Clinical Trials in Osteoporosis is intended to serve as a practical manual for clinicians and scientists coming to the subject new and to provide a standard for existing centers to measure themselves against
