Report of a National Bone Health Alliance Working Group: Expanded Criteria for the Clinical Diagnosis of Osteoporosis
   |    ASBMR2014
The National Bone Health Alliance working group expanded criteria for the clinical diagnosis of osteoporosis to include T-score < 2.5 at the spine or hip; low-trauma hip fracture; low-trauma vertebral, proximal humerus, pelvis or some distal forearm fractures in the setting of osteopenia; or FRAX score in a patient with osteopenia meeting or exceeding the National Osteoporosis Foundation Guidelines.

Autophagy functions in numerous critical ways, including in quality control, cell remodeling, and energy production. Understanding the molecular pathways of autophagy can result in understanding and treating neurodegenerative disorders, metabolic disorders, and physiologic changes associated with aging.
