  • The increasing number of osteoporosis patients is a pressing issue worldwide. Osteoporosis frequently causes fragility fractures, limiting activities of daily life and increasing mortality. Many osteoporosis patients take numerous medicines due to other health issues; thus, it would be preferable if a single medicine could ameliorate osteoporosis and other conditions. Here, we screened 96 randomly selected drugs targeting various diseases for their ability to inhibit differentiation of… CONTINUE READING
