Bones are everybody’s business. This means that clinical osteology, now an independent specialty, nevertheless encompasses all branches of medicine and affects each and every one of us. Intended for doctors who seek precise information on bisphosphonates in medical practice, this book has been designed as an up-to-date manual to deal with the currently recognized indications for bisphosphonates, to outline situations and conditions for prevention of skeletal disorders, and to provide practical guidelines for treatment.

Eine ganz entscheidende Rolle in der erfolgreichen Behandlung und Prävention der Skelettdestruktion in der Osteologie und Onkologie kommt einer neuen Arzneimittelgruppe zu, den Bisphosphonaten. In den letzten drei Jahrzehnten hat diese Substanzgruppe einen Siegeszug in der klinischen Onkologie und Osteologie erlebt und dem Knochen die gebührende Beachtung in der gesamten Medizin verschafft. Mit diesem kurz gefassten, klar gegliederten, klinisch orientierten und aufwendig illustrierten Manual werden die Struktur-Wirkungsbeziehungen der Bisphosphonate und deren Indikationen aufgezeigt und praktische Richtlinien für Behandlungsstrategien und Anwendungen gegeben. Es ist kein Buch für Knochenspezialisten, vielmehr ein übersichtlicher praktischer Ratgeber für alle Ärzte, die sich über Bisphosphonate informieren und Patienten erfolgreich behandeln wollen.
