Current Osteoporosis Clinical Trials

We are currently seeking women and men between the ages of 45 to 90 to participate in osteoporosis studies.

The most common type of bone disease is osteoporosis. A common problem that develops as people age, osteoporosis which is the thinning of bone tissue and loss of bone density over time. Researchers estimate that about 1 out of 5 American women over the age of 50 have osteoporosis. About half of all women over the age of 50 will have a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra (bones of the spine). The leading causes of osteoporosis are a drop in estrogen  in women at the time of menopause and a drop in testosterone in men. Men over age 70 have a higher risk for osteoporosis. If you or a family member think you may have osteoporosis, the Altoona Center for Clinical Research is currently enrolling patients for osteoporosis  studies.

The clinical trials taking place at Altoona Center for Clinical Research are new treatment methods that have been developed to help reduce pain and improve the quality of your life.
