Osteoporosis Breakthrough

There is news of an important step in the fight against osteoporosis.

Experts in the field say they have developed a formula that can accurately predict the risk for fracture in 75 percent of women.

The formula takes into account bone density, age, risk for falls and other factors.

Doctors will be able to use the formula to tailor treatment in older women.

They have already tested the formula on almost 700 women, including more than 200 who previously had a minor fracture.
