Osteoporosis constitutes a major public health concern. Worldwide, an osteoporotic fracture is estimated to occur every 3 seconds, which amounts to almost 9 million per year. These fractures cost 38.5 billion EUR per year in Europe. Osteoporosis could be a huge financial burden on Europe's health services over the next decade.
