Osteoporosis causes bones to become fragile and weak increasing the risk of fracture. Half of all women over 60 in Australia will suffer an osteoporotic fracture in their lifetime. Fractures can be painful and restrict activity. At the Garvan Institute of Medical Research, we conduct research into osteoporosis and its treatment.
We are looking for female volunteers who:
- are 60 - 90 years old
- have had a vertebral (spinal) fracture due to osteoporosis
- are interested in being part of a clinical trial that compares a new osteoporosis treatment to current medications. Both are designed to stop further fractures.
