Network in europe on male osteoporosis

Objective

Fractures are frequent in elderly men and carry a heavy burden in terms of mortality, morbidity and irreversible loss of quality of life and autonomy. However, male osteoporosis (or) has been a neglected problem. Presently, there is no adequate evidence base for rational management of male OP and no consensus on diagnosis or treatment. In this context, the aim of NEMO is to address the identification of men at high risk for fracture, the key to substantial progress in the management of male OP. The strength of the network lies in its multidisciplinarity and ability to take advantage of large European study cohorts. Expected achievements are a full characterisation of men at risk and assessment of tools for their identification with definition of conditions for optimal implementation. The results will be integrated in an outcome model that is broadly applicable to clinical risk assessment and modelling of effectiveness and economical impact of management strategies in male OP.
