NIH Osteoporosis and Related Bone Diseases ~ National Resource Center
May is National Asian American/Pacific Islander Heritage Month
Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders are a diverse group with many different cultures, languages, customs, and a deep sense of history that honors family and community. But some people in these groups may be at increased risk for certain health conditions like lactose intolerance, osteoporosis, and lupus.
Stem Cell-Based Strategies Offer Personalized Approaches For Treating Inherited Skin Disease
Two new studies describe efforts to develop stem cell-based approaches for treating Epidermolysis Bullosa (EB), a rare, genetic skin disease. People with EB have skin so fragile that the slightest friction causes blisters.
Long-term Follow-up Data From Large Orthopaedic Studies May Help Guide Clinical Practice
Musculoskeletal conditions like spinal stenosis and anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) tears in the knee affect people of all ages and can be debilitating. Recently reported long-term data provide clinically valuable insights into outcomes associated with treatments.
Osteocyte Cultures Go to the International Space Station
With support from NIAMS, NASA, and others, the Osteocytes and mechano-transduction (Osteo-4) investigation team at NASA will analyze the effects of microgravity on osteocytes, a type of bone cell. Understanding these effects could have implications for patients on Earth who have metabolic diseases such as osteoporosis.
Validation of Pediatric Patient Reported Outcomes in Chronic Diseases (PEPR)
The NIAMS, on behalf of the NIH, is soliciting applications and intends to capitalize on recent advances in the science of Patient Reported Outcomes (PROs) to measure the patient experience in clinical care and research in children with a variety of chronic diseases and conditions.
