It is estimated that one in three women and one in five men over 50 suffer osteoporotic fractures. In fact, “an osteoporotic fracture occurs every three seconds”, according to the Global prevalence of Osteoporosis among the world older adults: a comprehensive systematic review and meta-analysis paper.
FutureMeds’ Senior Medical Director, Professor Edward Czerwinski MD PhD, has been a prominent champion of osteoporosis prevention and treatment for over 50 years. Almost all FDA-approved osteoporosis medications have been investigated by Professor Czerwinski and his teams. He has led over 46 osteoporosis trials, organised over 24 conferences, and published over 530 publications to date.
Professor Czerwinski has recently been interviewed on TVN, a Polish television station, network, media and entertainment group and talked about the importance of prevention.

“In Poland, we have the highest death rate in people who have suffered a neck or femur fracture. It’s horrifying. 28% of women and 32% of men die within a year.” mentioned Czerwinski in the interview.
