An exciting new research project to improve the lives of people with osteoporosis is currently underway. The project focuses on repairing and growing new bone in areas where the bone has become very thin, by using injectable biodegradable materials combined with the patients’ own bone marrow cells (stem cells).
The research is at a very early stage and is currently developing the technology to make this treatment possible. However, given the potential of this technology to bring about significant benefit to patients, the research team is very keen to understand what people think about this potential treatment. The team is therefore inviting people to complete a short questionnaire which should only take about 20 minutes to complete. You do not need to have osteoporosis in order to complete the questionnaire. Please click on the link below to take the questionnaire.
The project, called MIDOs ‘Minimally Invasive Delivery of Osteospheres for Treatment of Osteoporosis’, is a collaboration between the Universities of Nottingham, Leeds and Birmingham and their associated NHS teaching hospitals. The University of Birmingham has compiled this questionnaire.
