Brief description Osteoporosis is a devastating disorder. Osteoporotic fractures in the elderly have been correlated with increased mortality rates. Osteoporosis alone costs $13.8 billion p.a. in USA and tens of millions of dollars in Australia. Cost to society of our ageing population for people become disabled by hip fractures alone could triple by the year 2040. Our research examines the role of CHKB in bone loss which may underscore its potential as a new molecular target for anti-resorptive drug development.
