NEW YORK (CBS 2) — Osteoporosis is a silent disease that haunts millions of women in America by slowly breaking down their bones.

But a new treatment could dramatically change life for women suffering from it.

CBS 2’s Dr. Holly Phillips tells us more in her report.

Researchers at The University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine need post-menopausal women to participate in a study on osteoporosis.

Women selected for the study must not currently be on treatment for the condition that results in bone loss. All participants will receive a free bone scan from the research team.
