Osteoporosis is a disease where decreased bone strength increases the risk of a broken bone. It is the most common reason for a broken bone among people who are old. Bones that commonly break include the back bones, the bones of the forearm, and the hip. Until a broken bone occurs there are typically no symptoms.

Scope and Importance
Journal of Osteoporosis and Physical Activity-Open Access gives a worldwide audience larger than that of any subscription-based journal in OMICS field. It gives barrier-free access to the literature for research. It increases convenience, reach, and retrieval power. Free online literature is available for software that facilitates full-text searching, indexing, mining, summarizing, translating, querying, linking, recommending, alerting, "mash-ups" and other forms of processing and analysis. It puts rich and poor on an equal footing for these key resources and eliminates the need for permissions to reproduce and distribute content. Osteoporosis affects about 10 million individuals in the United States, a number that is expected to increase substantially in coming decades as the elderly population burgeons. By encouraging optimal post fracture follow-up care and identifying those members at higher risk for fracture and in need of prompt treatment, managed care organizations can enhance the cost-effective management of osteoporosis, dampening downstream costs. Early assessment and treatment emerge as medically prudent steps in reducing the risk for osteoporosis-related fracture.
It is a disease of the bones. It happens when you lose too much bone; make too little bone or both. As a result, your bones become weak and may break from a minor fall or, in serious cases, even from simple actions, like sneezing or bumping into furniture. Breaking a bone is a serious complication of osteoporosis, especially when you’re older. Broken bones due to osteoporosis are most likely to occur in the hip, spine and wrist, but other bones can break too. Broken bones can cause severe pain that may not go away. Osteoporosis also causes some people to lose height. When osteoporosis causes the bones of the spine, called vertebrae, to break or collapse, it affects your posture and causes you to become stooped or hunched. Of the estimated 10 million Americans with osteoporosis, about eight million or 80% are women. Women tend to have smaller, thinner bones than men. Estrogen, a hormone in women that protects bones, decreases sharply when women reach menopause, which can cause bone loss. This is why the chance of developing osteoporosis increases as women reach menopause. Signs of osteoporosis:
Sloping shoulders Curve in the back,Height loss,Back pain,Hunched posture,Protruding abdomen.
Factors that you can control; Smoking,Drinking too much alcohol.
Experts recommend no more than 1 drink a day for women.A diet low in dairy products or other sources of calcium and vitamin D,Not getting enough exercise. Most of the osteoporosis medicines available at this time are not approved by the FDA for use in premenopausal women But, for women who have taken steroid medicines for a long time, three osteoporosis medicines are approved for the prevention and treatment of osteoporosis. In very rare cases, a healthcare provider may recommend that a premenopausal woman consider taking an osteoporosis medicine for other reasons. Examples include when a woman breaks a bone because of low bone density or has severe bone loss due to a medical condition.
Osteoporosis is often called the ""silent disease"" because bone loss occurs without symptoms. It is characterized by low bone mass and micro-architectural deterioration of bone tissue, leading to bone fragility and a consequent increase in risk of fracture. Global osteoporosis market is expected to reach 16 Billion by 2015. Fosamax was the undisputed leading product in the history of global osteoporosis drug market till 2007. It has a market share of nearly 37% in 2007 but, declined to 5% by 2015 due to patent expiry and competition from cheaper generics. Boniva and Evista were leading the osteoporosis market till 2010 but the dynamics of osteoporosis market is expected to change by 2011 as Prolia is going to be introduced in the market. It is predicted that Prolia will lead the market with nearly 45% share by 2015. The osteoporosis market offers multiple opportunities for current and future market players. The osteoporosis market is expected to undergo substantial change between 2012 and 2022. The number of companies vying for patient share will shrink by as much as 50%, as established players exit the market or acquire smaller players. Lastly, the aging of the population in developed markets will result in a larger patient pool.
These changes in the osteoporosis market will be reflected in the slow growth during the forecast period, with the market growing from $6 billion to $8 billion in 2011 USD at a CAGR of 3%.
