CEO Judy Stenmark stated, "IOF is pleased to provide this informative resource for healthcare professionals interested in the latest advances in bone and mineral research. While 10% of the featured research highlights exciting new basic research, 90% is clinically focused and therefore of essential interest to a broad range of practitioners and clinical researchers."

The abstracts have been selected and prepared by leading international experts who give their personal perspectives and highlight the clinical impact of the research presented. Key themes include:

Bone architecture and strength
Vitamin D, nutrition and metabolism
Osteoporosis treatment and new treatment strategies
Falls, frailty and fractures
Bone turnover markers

In addition, the following four symposia and plenary sessions are summarized: biochemical markers in the routine management of osteoporosis; International ONJ Task Force - 2014 Consensus on Diagnosis and Management; effects of diabetes on skeletal health; and ASBMR NOF Task Force on goals for osteoporosis treatment.

Video interviews of selected experts are also featured.
