Abstract

The PMO disease model, first developed for Sweden, was adapted to the UK. Due to demographic changes, the burden of osteoporosis is expected to increase by almost a fifth by 2020. Due to the lack of country-specific data, these results rely on several assumptions regarding the incidence of non-hip fractures, trends in BMD and rate of incidence over time.
